Life as a New Yorker

Had a late meeting. My client hailed a taxi for me. In Brooklyn there are few yellow or green taxies more car services.

I got in and gave him the address. We pulled off. After four blocks he asked me what I usually pay. I said, “$15 plus a tip.” He responded, “I cannot take you there for less than $20.00.” I looked around. No longer in the area to hail another car. I responded, “Huh.” Which means you just pissed me off. I took a deep breath and released it trying not to draw my sword. He began a conversation. I said, “DO NOT TALK TO ME.” He turned on the radio. I listened to my voice mail messages. Then returned a call to another client. While on the call he was polite enough to turn the music down. Actually he did it to hear my conversation.

As I ended the call we were just feet from my place. I said, “Pull over before you pass my place.” He pulled over and said, “You live in that building?” I responded, “Yes.” As I pulled a $20.00 from my pocket and handed it to him. He said, “Let me give you your change.” I responded, “No you keep it, it’s obvious you felt the need to cheat me; by the way you might as well call it a night because you won’t make another penny on this shift, punk!” He said, “No I was wrong I thought it was further away.” I said, “No you did not, you thought you had a sucker riding with you.” “You waited until you had me in an area that does not have taxies in it.” “Sir, you are a jerk, enjoy the rest of your evening!”

I crossed the street and unlocked the door to my building.

About Each Frame

It is said that I write with passion; true, I write when I need to release energy that will inspire, educate, inform, or release negative thoughts that I hope will touch another enough to evoke change. I love The Creator Of All Things, some of my family members, all those that it took to get to the making of me, #peace, #nature, #photography, #positive energy, #music, and YOU if you will let me. I love intellectual people; they are sexy!
