A Bridge

Phantom taxi rides

A RICKSHAW driver walks into a bar yesterday morning and stares at me from the doorway. He nods at me, and does the indian gesture which loosely translates as ‘oh come on’.


He keeps doing the gesture, and says something in Hindi. He looks quite angry.

After a minute of this, one of the waiters translates for me: ‘he says you took his auto from CP and didn’t pay him”

“I’m pretty sure I walked from home. I’ve been sitting here for 2 hours too. I did not take a taxi, I live in S-Block.”

But the driver insisted: I had definitely taken his taxi from CP, and definitely didn’t pay him. They had to kick him out.
