Taxing Taxiing

| USA | Working | April 10, 2017

(I work in a hotel. Sometimes the customers ask for a taxi, then change their minds without telling us. The driver gets really mad. Our company and the taxi company are friends because we give them a lot of business.)

Customer: *bails*

Me: *unaware* “The customer ought to be out in a few minutes.”

(I try to call the customer’s room, but of course, no answer.)

Me: *realizing* “I’m sorry, but it looks like the customer has left.”

Taxi Driver: “LEFT?! I HAVE BEEN WAITING AND I COULD’VE PICKED UP SOMEONE ELSE! YOU ARE A VERY BAD PERSON! THIS IS A BAD HOTEL! I WILL COMPLAIN! YOU UNDERSTAND?!”

(He begins advancing on me. I’m a small female, and he’s very heavy. I’m scared. My coworker, who’s six feet tall, comes out.)

Coworker: “Sometimes the customer leaves without telling us. It’s not our fault. Now go.”

(The driver tried to argue, but spluttered, backed up, and then stomped off. Later, I made a complaint to the company about his behavior, and the company assured us that he will no longer work for them!)
