Yellow Cab in orlando Florida is one of the worst run cab services that I have ever experienced. Drivers that totally rely on GPS as opposed to knowing their way around, management that have a lackadaisical approach to their job and drivers that have no understanding hospitality. There is a tiny handful of drivers that work there that are capable, the the remaining balance are either in dire need of personal hiygene instruction, manners, and driver's etiquette.
On top of everything else, they are total GPS whores that cant find their way around without them. I drove a cab in NYC for 2 years once, it took me 3 mos of daily driving to know the whole 5 boroughs...so how do they not know tiny little orlando??? beats the heck outta me...
I had the displeasure of encountering one specific drive just today that led to this posting.
This arrogant, self absorbed idiot had the audacity to insult me, and pry and question the purpose of my going to the hardware store. [continued below]....
..... Have you ever encountered someone that purposely antagonizes just to see the reaction? At 6'1"and 260lbs, I couldn't believe it. I'm polite and not a pushover. When addressed, this Idiot admitted what he was doing...what is this world coming to? I'm still trying to figure out how this guy made it alive so long ( had to be in his 40's, as am I)
The Dispatcher and manager were pretty much on the same type of page, not addressing the fact of a lack of courtesy toward a client... this jerk had me livid to the point of shaking.
Totally not worth going to jail over. what a total @$$hole. Come to find out the guy has been working there for 7 years, obviously part of the regime that is in place.
My Advice get a friend to drive yo around rent a car, or get a friggin' piggy back ride, but dont take them. THEY ARE THE WORST
