Today I am sad..Today I am so sad that I became mentally sick..no one ..I meant no one ever discriminated me in this country ever since I came here in the country 30 years before…but it happened today..A ticket agent who happened to be a black guy (the fact of the matter is this lowest of the lowest jobs are almost exclusively done by the black people..you don’t need to be a rocket scientist to do this job..) discriminated me just because I am a taxi driver…
How many of you got a made up tickets by a Ticket agents..? How many of you got a ticket when you were crossing especially 47th St and Park Ave in the morning rush hour for blocking the intersection..? I know the number could be in the thousands…these scums, robbers legally employed by the city for defrauding and robbing Taxi drivers hide nearby..the moment you slow down to cross the 45th/47th St West bound Street…they will stop you from crossing to the safe place so that they can scan your registration ticket and give you a ticket. The ticket will take you a whole week worth of hard earn money from your pocket.
The city was totally closed for vehicular traffic because of various events were going on at the same time..How could you close the city just like that..? It seems like the Mayor is totally clueless..he has no idea how the city perform..he is in a bubble..he put his nose into everything..he is nothing but a Pinocchio..his administration failed to do even a minimum job.
I think there were 5 events were going on on the city yesterday. The traffic was horrendous..no one could move ..I had a passenger coming from LGA..I came through the Midtown Tunnel. Tunnel traffic was heavy and slow..but still manageable. As soon as I came to 37th St and Lexinton Ave I got stuck. It took me about 15 minutes to come to Madison Ave and Police made us to turn onto Madison Ave which was already an ocean of traffic. I could not even move one bloc in 20 minutes.
I asked the Traffic Agent,” Excuse me..where would I be able to make a turn as I need to go to West Side..?” This black agent who was working on 39th Street and Madison Ave. He asked me,” Are you a cab driver..?” I answered,” I am the one who is driving the taxi..right..?” He said,” I don’t have to answer to a cab driver..” I could not believe my ears so I asked again,” What did you say..?” He said,” You heard me right..I don’t have to answer to a cab driver.”
I was speechless..my passenger who was from Germany said,” Oh My God..what a rude piece of shit this man is..This is how New York Police.(she thought he was a Police..I told her that he was nothing but a traffic agent) talks..?” I smiled and told her,” Miss..what do you expect from a ghetto born, uneducated, bully traffic agent employed by the worst Mayor of the Century..Bloomberg..?” She lowered the window and shouted at him..”You are nothing but a piece of shit..I will complain against you..”
Guess what that dirt did..He just turned around so that we could not see his name tag..and stayed there until we passed him. I saw him turning back in my rear view mirror.
It brought tears in my eyes..it never happened to me..I never felt any kind of discrimination..but in this incompetent Mayor’s time it happened..
I think this Mayor owe me an apology.
To that scum Traffic Agent..THIS IS MY COUNTRY…GET THE HELL OUT OF MY COUNTRY..
