    I'm worried if I fucked up they wont come as fast next time.


    I went to the bank and then had him park at rite aid while I went into the liquor store then take me home. The meter read $16.60 and I gave him $21. :dontknow:

    Yeah that's good as long as he didn't have to wait long or he charged waiting time, 15% is decent, you tipped a little more.

    I once work as a dispatcher for a car service, pretty much same as a taxi, but better cars and not yellow, and you don't get faster service by tipping better, but non tippers will be told we don't have anything available when we were busy and there was a wait. It's not up to the driver, and the dispatcher doesn't get the tips anyway, but yeah the driver will be happy to see you next time if you are a good tipper.

    An offer not to call INS on the driver.

    That totally stokes them out.

    I still wonder about waiting time though. The meter clicks slowest while waiting.

    I doubt he was expecting much when he found out you wanted to go to the liquor store -- he was probably thrilled with $5, which is a decent tip -- I used to work with someone who got a cab ride to work every single day and NEVER tipped the guy who drove her

    It's supposed to I guess, He's not using gas. We didn't have meters and waiting time was $1 a minute, we tried to discourage it, we didn't make money by waiting for people.

    If it's a round trip to a liquor store it's fine, but some assholes think it's a car rental and you can stop and let them do their errands. We didn't do people favors a stop at an ATM on the way was $2. The worst were the blaeks that want help with 500 pounds of laundry and don't tip, or with luggage to the airport and don't tip, and the idiots that only had $100 bills for a $5 ride.
