I took a cab home from work two nights ago. As odd as this may sound, I was quite nervous about the whole thing. The only time I have ever taken a taxi was probably 15 years ago and I was with my parents.
The thing I was really worried about was where I would sit. All day long I debated in my head whether I should ride in the front or in the back. Was it customary to sit in the back, or was it a bit rude? What if the driver was creepy?
Well, things turned out fine. At the last minute I decided I would ride in the front, but as I approached the front door, I saw that he had some things on the passenger seat. I got in the back and that was the end of it.
It was expensive, but well worth it in comparison to the alternative.
