I left work at 11pm today. That’s not so fun. It does make it better that I took a cab home on EA’s dime. I’m trying to make it a habit of tipping huge when I get home, because hey, it sure cost EA a lot less than paying me OT.
Anyways, when I got into the taxi, the cabbie’s voice sounded familar. It turned out it was my driver from the first time I took a cab home from work. He remembered me too. I didn’t have to tell him I lived in Port Moody.
Along the way, he told me about the cheap-ass SOBs that he picks up all the time. According to him, women are better tippers than men. Rich people do not necessarily tip better than poor people. Junkies heading to the downtown east side are surprisingly good tippers.
When we got to my place, it came to $39. I tipped him $7. That’s just a hair under 18%. I think that’s acceptable. I wonder how many more times this dude will drive me home before the game ships?
