I decided to share one of the best times in my life. I’ve been married now for ten years, and not many anniversaries can compare to this one.
How It All Started
It happened a couple of years ago. Since it was our anniversary, we decided to hit a bar. My boyfriend and I are not into grand gestures, spending money on expensive gifts, etc. I honestly believe that it’s pointless and that loving someone is enough. Also, you should love them every single day and not just on anniversaries.
Instead of going to Paris or London, we decided to get a few drinks in a bar that we both liked but rarely visited. It didn’t align with the figure showing in our bank account, but we figured we should treat ourselves for the special occasion. The bar was an hour’s drive from our home, and we decided to call …
Let me share a story that happened a couple of months ago and that managed to change my entire life.
I Was Rushing to Get to Work
I’m a single 21-year old with a great job and lots of friends. At the moment, I was rather happy with my life and how busy it was. I always had a lot on my plate, which kept me from thinking about anything else. When my last relationship turned up to be a dumpster fire, I decided to say “fuck it” and focus on what makes me happy and my career.
As anyone living in New York City knows, getting from place to place can be a nightmare. I was already late for work when I tried to hail a cab, and the last thing I needed was for some douche to try and get inside in front of me. I started screaming …
Taxis are one of the most used forms of transportation, but did you know that there are different types of taxis from around the globe? This article will cover the most interesting taxis that your world has to offer, so let’s get into it.
Yellow Cabs of New York City
New York, New York. What does one think of when someone mentions New York? Well, tall buildings that litter the landscape, the crowded streets of people rushing by, and the Yellow Cabs that outnumber privately owned vehicles.
The first gasoline-powered cab in NYC was imported from France in 1907 and painted yellow to make it stand out. It would be easy to say that this was the first branding of taxis in a heavily populated area since yellow cars were rare, making them noticeable.
Fiakers in Vienna
However, modes of transport differ from country to country. Let us draw your …
For years now, people have considered sex in public sacred. With little to none taboo left in the modern world about it, we’ve been trying to push boundaries even further. Unfortunately, new ideas are few and far between. Well, yes… that’s if you don’t count getting naughty in public.
We’ve all heard of the mile-high club and couples that enjoy getting down during a flight. Yes, that sure sounds delicious, but it’s not like many of us are going to experience it. So what’s left for people who love to experiment with the danger of getting caught — car sex! Yup, it’s a prime example of edgy public sex we all crave.
Why Is Car Sex Appealing to Couples?
Cars are the modern symbol of America. They’ve become so standard that most of us probably don’t even know what life was like without them. It’s like we all live inside …
If you’ve always thought about driving yellow cabs in New York or black taxis in London, maybe it’s time to turn this dream into an actual career choice. Driving cabs is a fantastic main job or side gig for many people. There are many other benefits to this type of work, such as flexible hours or the fact that you can be your own boss. Here’s our breakdown of the top reasons why you should be a taxi driver!
The Importance of Taxis
Firstly, everyone knows that taxis save lives. Cabs are some of the essential transportation services in big cities, and many people use them instead of buying a vehicle of their own. They also make it very simple to catch a ride if you’re in a rush. Moreover, taxis don’t require you to schedule or call for a ride beforehand, and they’re available 24/7. However, the services have …
As an in-demand and professional chauffeur, I know that prom season is incredibly busy for a lot of limo drivers and car services. Arriving at prom in an elegant limousine is the dream of many high school students. And as a driver, I get to see the students’ faces lighting with joy when they enter my vehicle!
Surely, this is an experience that stays with you forever. It also impresses your friends while making your parents feel safer and less stressed. So why use a limo to your prom, and what really happens once you’re inside? Here are the top reasons why limo drivers want you to book them for your prom!
Your Parents Will Approve
Firstly, my ten years of experience as a professional driver have shown me that parents feel safe if their child goes to prom in a limo. Stretch limos are some of the most luxurious …
Have you ever wondered what makes cab drivers mad? People leave things behind them after a ride, and, sometimes, drivers will hate them because of it. Here is a list of things you leave in the cab that drivers will absolutely hate.
If you want to make a cab driver hate you, the syringe is the way. People often forget that cabs are not business vehicles, but family cars as well. According to some cab driver stories, people left syringes behind them after a fare, which is wrong on so many levels.
Even if we don’t assume the worst (that the person was doing drugs), it is still something you shouldn’t do. The next customer can sit on it by accident, and the last thing you need is to worry about what kind of syringe it was.
So don’t do drugs, and don’t leave syringes behind you. There is …
Taxi drivers have been accused of many things. Inconsiderate driving, don’t use signals, don’t stop for passengers, selective driving, always sitting at coffeeshops, always complaining about gahmen.
But let’s step back and have explore their lives a little shall we?
Before we go on, do you remember the famous story last year? The one where the two taxi drivers reportedly earned between S$6,000 to S$7,000 a month?
The article went completely viral and drew disbelief. Not just that, most cab drivers express that clocking in long hours is not sustainable, not healthy and these are merely isolated success stories.
In theory cabbies’ working hours are flexible; feel like taking a nap? No one will stop you. Feel like taking a long coffee break? No one will check when you get back to work. Need to run an errand in between customers? Just turn off the sign on top …
Taking a taxi (taksi) in Istanbul is a cheap, easy and comfortable way of transportation. But with 20.000 taxis driving around town, only a fool would believe all drivers are honest.

Driving a taxi in one of America’s urban jungles is back-breaking work with little reward. The hours are long, most of them spent sitting or schlepping 50-pound suitcases to the trunk. The pay can be awful; if a driver doesn’t make enough in a night to cover the lease of the taxi medallion and gas, he or she might go home with $0—or, worse, owe the taxi company money. And then, on top of all that, there are the people: us. The taxi universe is the service industry on steroids, with drivers encountering the spectrum of humanity, sometimes behaving its worst.
This isn’t to say cab drivers are perfect. As in any industry, there are bound to be a few shady characters who overcharge customers, keep a messy car, or just behave rudely. But most of them are trying to do right by their customers and their families, says Francis …
Growing up in Canada, Greg Stinson never imagined he would one day become a taxi driver — especially not on the other side of the world in Tokyo.
“I didn’t have some childhood dream to be a taxi driver,” said the 34-year-old, who joined cab firm Hiro Kotsu Co. late last August. “People have negative opinions and not-so-negative opinions about the taxi industry, but it seemed really interesting as a way for me to have a new experience in Japan.”
Hiro , which operates in Tokyo and Kanagawa Prefecture, began actively recruiting non-Japanese drivers last spring. The company already employed a handful of drivers from overseas and had been impressed with their performance. It was also keen to capitalize on the record number of tourists that have been flocking to Japan.
Like many sectors in the country, the taxi industry is feeling the effects of the labor crunch caused …
Let’s get it straight – don’t let anybody tell you driving a taxi is the way to a guaranteed easy life. Like every line of business, cab driving has its challenges as well as its rewards.
First and foremost, you’re dealing with people, all the time. If you’re a people person – and many of us are – then taxi driving can offer a fabulous outlet for your interests and personality. Taxi drivers are, rightly, famed for sharing their opinions, after all! You can also make some pretty decent tips in the taxi business, especially if you’re good at getting on with your customers. If you don’t really enjoy chatting to lots of people on a regular basis, then maybe cab driving isn’t the answer for you.
As well as a way of life that means meeting new people all the time, the cab trade also gives thousands of workers …
While visiting Australia about six years ago, I received a surprising lesson on the ETR principle of “Living Rich” from my taxi driver.
I had just finished a hectic two-day business trip in Sydney and was ready to go home. When I got into my taxi for the half-hour ride to the airport, my thoughts were on all the things I had to do once I got back.
The taxi driver explained that there were several routes he could take to the airport; however, he recommended only one of them because of the time of day. I commented that he seemed to know his business.
“I guess I do,” he said.
He then went on to tell me his story – one of the most unusual stories I have ever heard . . .
My taxi driver (I’m embarrassed to admit that I never did ask his name) had been …
Planning to Start a Taxi Company? Here’s What You Need to Know
In a world full of Cargo, Uber, and Lyft services, taxi cabs have still not lost their appeal. They are certainly needed, even if only in certain areas. What better time to start a taxi service than now?
Finding the Right Market
One of the most important things about starting a business is supply and demand. That is why one of the first steps in your business plan should be to research if there is space for another taxi company in your area of choice. You have to find out if the area is big enough for another cab service. If it is well-covered, maybe a taxi service is not needed, and your taxi business would be doomed to failure from the start.
This is the main challenge, and it leads to another one: How would you make …
Hailing services such as that of Uber and Lyft have seen a rise in recent years. This is especially true in the United States, although it can be seen in many other countries. So much so that some taxi companies are suffering due to it.
However, with this new addition to the ridesharing market, there has also been a rise in sexual assault accusations. Many have made the news. That brings forth the question: is using a taxi safer than using an Uber? What is the difference between a taxi and an Uber? And which should you use?
The Driver’s Profile
A nice car is useless with a shady driver behind the wheel. That is why taxis or rideshare services have to go through a screening process.
The process can vary from state to state and even country to country. Uber says …
Is it safe to ride taxis during the COVID-19 crisis, and what measures can taxi drivers take to protect themselves and their passengers? Today, we’ll cover some risks of using taxis and similar vehicles in times of the coronavirus, and we’ll also reveal how drivers can keep themselves and their passengers safe.
Is It Safe to Ride Taxis?
Firstly, taxis, Ubers, Lyfts, and other vehicles for hire transport hundreds of passengers per week. Thus, it makes sense that they are highly exposed to the spread of the coronavirus. Still, riding cabs has been a major part of people’s everyday routine for centuries, and most public transportation services are endangered during COVID-19. They are also facing backlash from critics who believe that they should not be available to the public during the pandemic.
If you consider the official advice from most countries, the evidence states that a distance of six feet …
The popularity of Rideshares like Uber and Lyft has skyrocketed in recent years, only to plummet in 2020 due to the enduring threat of the Coronavirus. Are rideshares really suffering, or are some companies managing to make their way out? What sort of cost-cutting measures have been enforced, and how are rideshare employees coping with COVID-19? Keep reading to find out!
Sharp Decline in Trip Bookings
Obviously, the pandemic has resulted in a quick and steep decrease in trip bookings. For example, Lyft’s ridership plunged by 75% in April. Still, it’s not a surprise that rideshares are seeing a decrease in customers. This method of traveling is not entirely safe during the pandemic. Most hire vehicles can barely accommodate the optimal 6 feet of social distancing between the driver and passenger. That increases the risk of spreading the virus. Moreover, dozens of people use rideshares daily. That is, you can …
Let me introduce myself first. I’m a working woman in her 30s who has had a wonderful boyfriend for a few years now. Unfortunately, we hit a wall in our bedroom activities. Things just got a little boring. Yeah, I know that’s very sad, especially when you’re like us and enjoy sex.
Saddened by our circumstances, we go on a quest to find something that would help us out. I’m not talking about couples counseling because nothing is wrong with either of us. We just needed new things to try!
That’s when my love came up with something behind my back. I didn’t think I’d ever say I’m glad he did something without me knowing.
In short, I had a go at wearing vibrating panties, and it was so incredible that I want everyone to know about it. No, I don’t think this is too …
