Regardless what my sister Fatoom says about Taxis and regardless to her bad experience with them, I always get good taxis!
After I sold my car last week, I decided to try public transportations before I give up and use my dad’s car!
Got out of home Sunday morning and head to bus station, waited 10 minutes then a bus stopped, cool! got in and out because found no seat for me.. the “control” guy said there is a place beside girls. i looked at the girl, asked her if there is a place for me. she did not even bothered to look at me and said no with some other words that i did not understand. i got out!
waited 2 minutes and stopped a taxi. he was an old man and did not start conversations like others. when we got to the place i want, the counter was showing ~1.70 JD i gave him 20 JD but he laughed and said you’re the first one today! i dont have change. I counted the “frata” I have and found like 1.30 JD he said they are enough, dont worry. I insisted that he drive down the street like 200 m to get to the supermarket. he said noway! how would you come back all the way here! I was explaining to him that it was ok and i want to go across the street there anyway. he insisted that there is no need and it is ok and did not want to drive any cm down! I said ok 3ammo shokran kteer and im very sorry. he said walaw 3amo!
Can you believe that? He’s amazing, may Allah give him 1000x times that money. wallah he was great man.
That day I gave up and next day started using my dad’s car until i get a car!
