She Booked a Taxi Driver and Made Him Wait for Over an Hour, but When She Tried to Underpay, She Felt the Wrath of Justice

A taxi driver recently shared a story online of how a woman booked him for a trip, made him wait an hour, and then underpaid him. He then took revenge by ensuring other drivers in the area were wise to her scams.

The man wrote, “A few years ago, I worked as a ‘private hire’ taxi driver. Basically, I was working a taxi without a license, but it’s usually overlooked as long as you don’t cause trouble or cause an accident.”

“It wasn’t uncommon for people to hire us for special jobs, and some drivers would have multiple people as clients,” he added. “I had this one woman who had hired me before call up and ask me to drop her in the next town over and pick her back up later.”

He turned up at the woman’s house. He called her to say he was there, and she said she’d be there soon. But nothing happened. He waited and waited.

After an hour, the woman came out. She had her kids in tow. He was surprised because she never mentioned extra passengers. However, he was OK with it because it meant he’d get extra money.

As they started on the journey, it began to rain heavily. The roads were treacherous and flooded. He drove carefully because the route required going through the hills and plenty of sharp bends.

Visibility was low, and there were lots of bends in the road. The man drove very carefully, beeping his horn as he approached corners. The woman tutted at his cautious approach, but he kept his counsel.

The woman told him to take a turn. He didn’t know the area. However, when he saw a street sign, he got a sinking feeling. She’d directed him to a notoriously dangerous place where taxis get robbed frequently.

They arrived, and he told her the fee. She was shocked that it was so high, but he reminded her that she made him wait for an hour and had extra passengers. However, she insisted she would only pay half the fee.

He took the discounted fee and left. He wasn’t happy, but he didn’t know what else to do. However, a few hours later, she called him and asked her to pick him up. He was stunned and blocked her number.

A few days later, the woman called him on a different number, trying to hire him again. He couldn’t believe her nerve. He said “no” and blocked the new number.

Taking revenge

However, he wasn’t finished. He called all the taxi companies in the area to warn other drivers that she liked to rip people off. He knew she’d struggle to get a cab from now on.

Was he right?

The man took a hit on the fee, but he ensured the woman didn’t get away with her scheme. He wrote to an online forum to share the story of his revenge and got some good replies.

One commenter said, “Well done! It could have easily been a setup on that second trip back.”

While another poster declared, “Surprised you didn’t answer, tell her ‘I’m coming,’ then just ignore her. Let her wait a couple of hours before she works out. You’re not going to drive her.”
