Did you have a good holiday? Mine was fantastic. Good eats and cheap beer. What a country!
I did some party-hopping and depended on taxis to get me around. I even flagged one with a meter! It was cheaper than the zone system. Get on that, Fenty.
Unfortunately, getting into a cab was more difficult than I anticipated. I imagined that most of the cabs were around the Mall to get tourists from the fireworks back to their hotels. However, the cabs that did pass me by were especially frustrating. Why can't cabbies in this stupid city shut off their taxi light when they already have passengers? I mean, it's not that fucking hard. Other cities' cabbies are able to do with little to no fuss.
I know innovations like taxi lights and meters might be new and confusing to some in the city, but I bet people will figure it out in time. The 20th Century awaits! Excelsior!
