Dick Move

So last night, I was leaving the ECNYs and went to go hail a cab that was right outside the theater. The driver pulls down his window and I say "I'm going to Park Slope, Brooklyn." He kinda shakes his head a little (and I curse myself inside for mentioning where I'm going before getting into the cab proper) but I ask again, and he says "Hold on, let me pull over."

And then he just DRIVES OFF.

You should have gotten in the limo I hired especially for you upon your ECNY win! Gah!

Let me chime in with my public congratulations. Elephant Larry is lucky as heck that we have a guy as skilled as Stefan in our ranks. Kudos to you Mr. Lawrence! Privat congratulations to follow...

Disappointing. I was expecting to read about some patented Stefan Lawrence Dick Moves.

Did you mention that you were ECNY Award Winning Flyer Designer Stefan Lawrence? That would have got him moving.

Cab drivers are dicks. I have the same problem with Queens, and I literally live right next to Manhattan. And tip really well.

You hear that, dicks? Stop turning down my awesome tips.

Today the cab drivers blog reads: "Asshole move: So last night, I was working like normal and I spot a young man looking for a cab. I pull over to offer a ride. I pull down my window, and he says, "I'm going to Park Slope, Brooklyn." I can't believe it! I love Park Slope! And, I REALLY love driving to Park Slope! Naturally, I shook my head in excitement. Park Slope: Unbelieveable! The young man asked me again if I would take him there. I wanted to make sure this ride got off to a good start, so I said, 'hold on, let me pull over.' I drive 4 and a half blocks or so to 26th and 11th avenue--the next available area to pull over. And to my surprise, the young man wasn't there. I waited for 7 hours for him to show up. Each minute ticked by with thoughts rushing through my head of the wonderful sites I would see in Brooklyn. He NEVER SHOWED. I would've given him the drive of his life...
