Today I'm on a bit of a rant and have discovered the BEST way to take care of your taxi driver.
A girl in heels schlepping heavy totes to set is never an easy task. The cab driver pulled up to the apartment, helped me with one bag after I made my way to the boot of the car, and I continued to load the rest. As I got out I handed him $7 which was for a quick ride up the street to set, and then I got out (he did not).
"Should I unload my own bags?" I asked.
"Yes please!" he retorted .
So girls the lesson is this. When the cabbie drops you off - GET OUT OF THE CAR. Trust me he'll get out with you. Have him help you unload the bags and THEN pay/tip him for the services. If you hand him the money first inside the car, he'll sit there and let you help yourself.
