almost home, car crash [Dec. 8th, 2006|08:02 pm]

in taxi now going home from SFO. And the driver just spun out going around exit ramps, spun car, and went head-on into gaurd rail at 20 mph, deploying his airbag and totally fucking up the front of the taxi. I saw it coming so was able to brace myself.

.. Yet he's continuing to drive me home. Airbag in his lap. Wtf?

Home sweet home.

This sounds bad. Your driver might have a concussion. He could be seriously confused, drowsy, or have impaired judgment. Not that I'm a doctor but it just seems like common sense to get out.

Plus the guy's kind of proven that he doesn't know how to drive in the rain.

Wow, glad you're alright. That's some dedication... or... insanity?

Gods love you :)

This is the Russian risk, sublimated. You've brought back some dark energy, but gods love you and dissipated it. :)

And he'll probably still expect a tip. Glad you were not hurt dude.

Coming in tomorrow's paper:

"In retrospect, perhaps hiring the 'Crazy Taxi' guys to create the cabbie training simulator was not such a hot idea.", said a Chairman of San Francisco's DOT, under conditions of anonmity.

That's pretty damn hardcore. I wonder if he was originally from the Bronx or something?
