Why Yellow Cabs Suck!

Feel free to add to this list:

1.) Ignoring your passenger's request to take a certain route - instead, taking them on a route that makes absolutely no sense, and will guarantee YOU a higher fare... then continuing to argue with them when they question your decision to do so.

2.) Having loud foreign conversations on your cell phone for the entire ride, and holding up a finger to tell your passenger to "hold on" so you can finish your conversation when they're trying to tell or ask you something. For bonus points, make it an angry conversation that also appears to make you "drive angry".

3.) Allowing yourself and/or your cab to smell like various dead or rotting things, generally resemble the inside of a dumpster or medical waste bin, etc.

Edited to add:

4.) Pretending you can't take a credit card.

Edited again to say:

I don't think Uber is the solution to all of the world's problems, nor is Lyft or anything else at the moment. These companies (Uber in particular, which has a history of shady practices when it comes to their users' privacy), have plenty of problems of their own. It's just that they happen to be a better option than most cabs (though their are exceptions on both sides of the aisle) at the moment.

5. YOU ARE A YELLOW SLAVE THAT HAS TO WORK A SHIFT!

6. YOU ARE A YELLOW SLAVE THAT DON'T OWN CHIT!

7. YOU ARE A YELLOW SLAVE THAT IS MAKING HUGE PAYMENTS ON A WORTHLESS MEDALLION THAT IS FALLING IN VALUE FASTER THAN A NEW CAR OFF THE LOT!

Dude wtf I drive yellow my car is clean as hell and might smell like liquor on Friday nights from 30 something trips at worst.. I never talk on phone and usually play quiet music like volume 2 or 3 on camry. I don't drive shifts I basically lease same cab. I like doing long hours on busy days nights etc.. As for longer routes yes sometimes it's awful to do but half the time it makes sense and if done with speed same price as local route, do hate people giving step by step directions I sometimes ignore when there is clearly more traffic their desired way. Credit card machine lol. Mine works great and majority of the time I wish they paid credit as I get a lot of cash for some reason and tend to lack a good amount on cc certain weeks due to all the cash.. Damn that cash! For the foreign language I will curse at the road quietly in Russian sometimes to avoid pax understand because well I drive yellow, gotta have the cursing.

The truth hurts...I Know. This op remembers when yellows would routinely discriminate by not picking up people of color, or going to outer boroughs. This op can't wait to see the death of yellow. Yellow was a monopoly and life was good. Yellow is no longer a monopoly and now they want to be nice...message to yellow go F yourselves. Even though I complain that Uber Sucks, Lyft Sucks, Juno Sucks, Gett sucks, In reality, i'm still making money and doing my part to bring down yellow.

Isnt it ironic....taxi is an immigrant job. Immigrants would discriminate ROUTINELY, but the tables have turned, and now this same community is now on the receiving end of discrimination.
