I truly despise rudeness, especially over something such as this. He needs to lose his taxi license.

Babetoo, I feel your pain. There simply is not enough good, reliable, affordable public transportation in our country. So a cab driver can get away with this crap. It just isn't worth his time to do short runs? I'm going back to re-read, but can you call the management of the company and arrange for a regular pick-up, drop-off?

WHen people won't accept your credit card, when it is company policy TO accept it, it means they are trying to cheat the company and the IRS. So think of calling the company, asking for regular pick-ups and drop-offs, and see if they can bill you every month.

Reporting him to the company may be being a big favor for them, because he's cheating someone.

A friend of mine is a cab driver and I used to ask for him especially, until he asked me nicely not to do that as he could lose a good trip (like an airport run), just to give me a short ride.

The dispatcher is the person at fault here, the driver had no business taking his anger out on you.

Do let the cab company know, but wait until you're calmer.

I'd be madder than a wet hen, Babe!!

I'd print out what you just told us it so you can remember exactly what he said to you. That way you can give an accurate report to his boss.
If you're anything like me, in the heat of the conversation I'd draw a blank.
Good luck Babe, and we'll be needing a report ok?

these days i generally only take one cab ride a month. just for haircut. i will follow through on this on tuesday. my neighbor said she would be glad to take me if she was at home. so that may just be a way. or will just make when my granddaughter is available. she would have taken me yesterday but she had a wedding. i am much calmer about it today and certainly did not lose any sleep over it. i do not get that mad often, probably a good thing, lol. thanks to all for the sympathy.

I think you should also file a complaint with the government department that grants taxi licenses.

Babe,
If you don't get it squared away with the cab company contact the credit card company. It is against Mastercard/Visa association rules for a business to refuse the card as payment even on small transactions.

Doctors who don't pay attention to what their patients and the family members are saying. I am so mad right now I can barely stand it!
