Local cabbie, Kerrod has been speaking to someone else for over twenty minutes now.
“What did you say?” says passenger, Bridget, who was under the impression that Kerrod’s muffled talking was directed at her.
“No. Not you” says Kerrod, pointing to his bluetooth headset.
Bridget returns to scrolling on her iPhone.
Speaking to the Betoota Advocate shortly after he cross-city fare, Bridget says it wasn’t the first time this has happened to her.
“I often get cabbies who are already mid conversation with someone in the world, even after I get in”
“I just don’t understand the long breaks between talking. It’s can go five or so minutes before they whisper back”
Kerrod* was approached for comment but refused, before accusing us of using Uber and demanding we only get in his cab if the fare is long enough and we can pay cash.
