I’ve been driving part-time over 3 years. During that time I’ve learned, among other things, how stupid Pax can be.
- Pax that call you up and give you crap on the way to the pickup and then expect you to show up. This weekend I had just headed towards a long pick up when the phone rang. It was the pax who immediately started grilling me; did I have the pickup location, how long until I’d be there, did I have the drop off location (which of course I didn’t). I confirmed for him that I was on my way. Then he concluded “Fifteen minutes? I’m waiting!” Like he was speaking to some kind of servant/child. I then reassured him I was on my way and immediately cancelled the ride.
- Pax who stand where you can’t possibly stop to pick them up. My 2 favorites are a highway entrance ramp and a construction zone in downtown SF with “No Stopping-Tow away Zone signs posted everywhere and a bunch of cops standing right next to them.
