    i’m addicted to taking cabs, as expensive as they may be. call me lazy, but sometimes its worth the $15-20 to get where i’m goin a lot sooner.

    As a frequent visitor to the city, I always try to avoid using cabs. But sometimes, navigating the CTA can be a tricky proposition, and it’s necessary to ride the yellow limousine. Just this last weekend, I ended up spending $30.00 on cab fare, and a couple weeks back, it was probably twice that much. Guess you have to pay if you want the convenience.

    The other problem I have with the fare hike is the fact that 90% of the cab drivers in this city are completely clueless- they ask for directions every. single. time. I get in a cab. I had read they were going to be cracking down on that as part of the fare hike, but that definitely hasnt’ been my experience. I don’t mind paying a lot for good cab drivers, but they’re few and far between, in my experience.
