Laguardia


Tonight really sucked. The only thing that was easy was that, when I ended up at Laguardia, I didn't wait longer than 25 minutes to get a fare back to the city (sometimes you can sit there for over an hour, which is just painful). This picture is from the front of the line at the US Airways Shuttle terminal. Eventually I was sent up to the main US Air terminal and took three Germans to the Clarion hotel on Park Ave. South and 30th. They tipped exactly ten percent of the meter, because that's what German people do.

You have a great s a tory telling ability combined with pics gives you an extraordinary blog.

I used to drive a taxi many years ago in da Bronx. It wasn't that much fun back then either, but it was more profitable.

May you have safe trips on your shift today.

Cheers!!

I'm not sure why, but the wait at the airport seems so long--it could be because I feel trapped there. I don't like the the unnatural atmosphere of the place.

I though the tip meant to be 15 percent. is it 10 percent in Europe?

hi, i know in the usa tipping is a big thing, but maybe it would be better if people were paid fairly and didn't have to rely on 'charity'! americans should stop complaining about the tipping habits of other people and start thinking at finding a way to be paid a decent wage instead!
