The cabbie said no problem and starting speeding through the streets. We came up on a yellow light and instead of slowing down, he sped up and shot through the intersection.
I asked, “Hey, should you slow down a bit?”
“Don’t worry about it. All of my buddies drive this way.”
We came up on a red light and again he sped through the intersection.
I’m seriously concerned for my life now, “Would you please drive more carefully.”
“Don’t worry about it. All of my buddies drive this way and we have been fine.”
Then we came up on a green light and the cabbie screeched to a dead stop.
I got curious, “Why are you stopped at a green light?”
“Oh, I gotta be careful ’cause one of my buddies could be driving on the other street.”
