Thanks taxi driver!

The other night I was heading down to the Penn Station area from my apartment and needed to get there fast. I was running late and my friends were upset that I wasn't at the bar yet. I hailed a cab and told the cabbie to get me there fast.

I turned off the annoying TV screen in the cab (ugh they make me feel carsick). Then I noticed that he had the radio on and it was playing just the song to get me in the mood for a night out, Beyonce's "Single Ladies". So I leaned onto the cab partition and asked if he could turn it up a little. He turned the volume way up and I swayed in my seat. After the song was over and we were still speeding down 5th Ave, the cabbie asked me what stations I liked to listen to. We went through a few different ones until we found another dance song. He was a fan of 103.5 while I like 95.5.

A few minutes later we arrived at the bar and it had only taken about 3 songs worth of time to get me to midtown!

I gave him a good tip and left the cab happier than when I had gotten in!
