The ongoing saga of one woman trying to be the lone beacon of reason in the sea of ridiculousness that flows through her taxi.
Hey now, check this comment out ...
I got this off one of my old stories written awhile ago. This one -> http://heardinmycab.blogspot.com/2007/12/christ-jeebus-i-work-with-stooges.html
Can I just ask, why doesn't Blogger make some sort of "thing" that lets you know when you get a new comment on an older blog?? Or maybe they do and I just don't know about it ??? Anyone?
Your cab company is obviously bigger than mine. Maybe the division of labor is one of the reasons your dispatcher has less power. Where I work as a dispatcher that means I answer the calls, take the orders, deal w/ the customer service issues, dispatch the orders, do general office work etc etc etc and there's only one person here at a time. We have what we call a 10-x. If the dispatcher 10-x's you you are not permitted to work for however many days you are 10-x'd for. You're lucky he seems to not be able to do that because if a driver copped the attitude you present yourself as having much of the time with customers in your blog w/ me and then played that income card I'd 10-x you for a month.
This person thinks I have "an attitude" and would cut me off work for a month. WTF? Yes, I have an attitude, but my attitude is usually fairly amused until someone makes it personal. Do you KNOW what it takes to be a woman cab driver in this day and age? And one that works nights? There is a reason I am STILL the ONLY woman that drives nights for our company (and we have over 200 cabs running 24/7).
For the love of Pete. Now I'm irritated. I hate when I feel I have to justify myself. Bah.
Edited to add: I did NOT scream all that. It's normal-sized in my editing screen. Blessed Blogger.
