stupid taxi driver

i had to smack him

Amy just recently referred to a taxi driver story that I don't think we talked about so I will just briefly explain it -
At the train station in Da Nang, we were trying to share a ride with 2 dutch? guys to Hoi An, but the cars are too small to fit any more than 2 people with luggage, so in the confusion, we ended up at another taxi and got in. We assumed that since the meter was on in the car, we would pay a fair price, but this didn't happen. Our driver took the slowest, longest way possible and drove no more than 35mph, I swear. I started looking at him through the rear view mirror and realized that he was actually falling asleep as he was driving. He did things like open the windows and wash his face and move his arms weirdly to keep awake, but his eyes kept closing, so I had to wake him up! Anyway, he charged us too much, tried to take us to Hotel we didn't want to go to and we just didn't like him. Sour taste left in the mouth after this experience. We know we are partly to blame, but nevertheless - you are a jerk, taxi driver!
