Riding a taxi cab is more comfortable than riding in a public transit. I wish I have my own car and drive my way going home to Batangas and save more travel time with it. Last weekend, we took a cab going to bus terminal which is our usual transport when going somewhere but that day was unusual. Unusual in a way that we were charged almost double of the fare that we used to pay in the same route and same distance. Okay, maybe the taxicab is a brand new vehicle but I think it's still not fair to charge us above the metered price. We're seated in a comfortable soft leather upholstery with our feet in a highland all weather floor mat but that would be funny if that's their way to justify the fare. It's not even fair to reason out that we headed a bad traffic. Anyways, I didn't argue with the driver. I just thank him for a safe trip and didn't give him a single tip because I was so sure that our fare should have been less than that amount.
