The last post I wrote was about two months ago, in February. Some of my friends and readers have asked: ‘Hey, Are you all right?. Are you still driving a cab?’. Surely, some must have also wondered whether I'm still around in this world!. Not surprising. You see, at 67 and driving a cab on our busy roads, anything could have happened to me, right?! Well, Thanks God, I'm OK! but I owe everyone an explanation.
Like I've said before, my explanation is quite simple. Apart from getting older, I'm not enjoying cab driving as much as I used to.
Strangely, I still like to blog but I write only when I've something interesting and worth sharing, if not, I would only be spewing old stuff and wasting everybody’s time. I would rather be quiet and spent time reading and enjoying other brilliant writers blogs like those I follow here. Indeed, it's also my embarrassing admission of begin lazy in writing.
Here, I also promise not to repeat the subject matter of my three preceding paragraphs again. It's boring!.
Now, I think I've something worth sharing. It's GrabTaxi App.- a third party taxi booking application which commuters can download onto their smartphones to book and get a cab faster than your call booking to COMFORT. You can read more of this application at this link GrabTaxi
Presently, many taxi drivers join Comfort/CityCab because of their copious amount of call bookings. If other taxi companies like SMRT, TransCab, Premier gets more taxi bookings through GrabTaxi App., more taxi drivers will join them. When that happen, hopefully Comfort will treat their drivers better.
I understand from my taxi buddies that Comfort sack their drivers at their whims & fancy because they have a long "Q" taxi drivers waiting to join them. In addition, my buddies say that there is a economic reason for their vicious action in getting rid of drivers who commit frivolous mistakes.
