I got a hard day today.
It's been unbelievably unlucky and at last, big one was waiting for me.
I was the top of the line at the taxi rank, and an old shady guy was walking up to my cab.
He jumped on and said.
"Osaka, Shin-Imamiya, please"
Hey, it's big(long) one.
But he was absolutely "shady", and stinky. Shin-Imamiya is kind of like a "shady" place in Osaka (Sorry guys from Shin-Imamiya, it might be just my "wrong" impression but not today).
"Thanks, I need be paid by cash OK?"
Then I have no reason to be stuck in there.
Soon after I drive forward, he said,
"Could you please stop at where a rest room is?"
It's a station. Rest room is just there. Now I got a reason to be doubtful with him.
But I already pushed the meter button so I can't drive back (I may be able to, but I didn't wanna do so).
"No problem, but It's 1 o'clock in the morning, shops are closed so I would stop at a park which has a rest room, OK?"
Then, I swerve my cab to a park. He jumped off. I was waiting weary.
He came back and jumped the back seat.
"No problem.... Anyway, Shin-Imamiya is pretty far from here, and the fare would be so expensive. Are you sure that you can pay 20 thousand (yen) cash right away?"
"... I'm gonna sleep. Just wake me up when you get there"
"Please, I'm asking if you are aware where you are"
"What did you say?"
"Do you have 20 thousand yen now?"
Done. That's the answer I wanted.
I went a police box, but didn't go in there.
"OK here is police, you can ask what you do now."
"Please take me home..."
"I'm working. I.'m not gonna charge the fare. JUST GET OFF."
Fortunately, he just got off.
I rushed back to the station to get next customer, but it was too late.
I lost the fare (about a thousand yen), but I might be lucky without having bigger trouble.
It was a bad day, hard day for me.
But there are good one and bad one.
That's life, that's cab driving.
Tomorrow will be a better day.
