Parisian taxis can be nice
The 15 200 Parisian taxis have a poor reputation... They are said to be rude, racists and... too scarce! I must say all this is pretty true. And though, 2 months ago, I had to take a train to go down to the South and, to reach the station, I took a taxi. The traffic was absolutely terrible and I realized half way through that I was going to miss my train. On top of that I also realized I had not enough money to pay him! I told him to go back home, that it was not worth rushing and that I did not have enough money anyway... And guess what. Not only did he manage to reach the station just on time but he also accepted my 10 euro bill whereas his meter showed 15 euros. I doubt he reads my blog but if he does: thank you!
