Taxi Mafia… otra vez

22 Nov

I had another experience this morning I couldn’t help but share.  Further continues my fear and provides more evidence for my mafia theory.  Basically, our driver was in a BAD mood, for whatever reason.  So he decides to take it out by driving like a complete maniac.  I mean some of the most aggressive driving I’ve ever seen in my life.  And here in Mexico, I’ve seen a lot.  A car in front of him is driving normally, even perhaps going the speed limit (gasp!), and our taxi driver was having none of that.  At every chance he got he tried to pass him and was inches away from doing so, but could never quite succeed.  He started making gestures at the driver and tailgating him to the point of centimeters.  But that wasn’t enough, so he called in his taxi mafia thugs.  He got on his radio and started describing the car, and telling everybody to go after it.  He even yelled and motioned at another taxi in front of us to go after him.  The poor driver, who really didn’t do anything wrong except drive like a normal person, probably got attacked from all sides.  It was insane, but just another day in the DF.  I was never so glad to get out of a taxi in my life.

    Oh, Laura… por eso siempre subete a taxis con viejitos conduciendo… ellos siempre van lento, jejeje… Pero bueno, una lástima que nuestra ciudad siempre te muestre el lado feo; empezando con que te puso con nosotros en clase de periodismo, jejeje… saludos!!

    A MIS AMIGOS Y A MI, NOS ATACÓ UN GRUPO DE TAXISTAS EN LAS CALLES DEL CENTRO. EL NEFASTO TAXISTA LLAMO POR RADIO A OTROS CONDUCTORES Y DE LA MANERA MÁS COBARDE GOLPEARON A MIS AMIGOS. EL RADIO SIRVE PARA ABUSAR DE LOS PASAJEROS COMUNES Y NO PARA QUE TENGAMOS UN MEJOR SERVICIO!! GRRRRRR
