Keeping in touch with your taxi uncle.

with 23 comments

I booked a cab to take me to United Square for the spa session today because it was pouring heavily.
After I alighted at my destination, my phone beeped and the message reads –

(anyway, it’s really time to charge my phone! :p)

I don’t know whether to feel annoyed or amused.

Annoyed because that phone number was given to the driver just in case he need to give me a call when the cab arrives,
not for him to sms me to “keep in touch”!
Or amused, because I now have an awesomely funny experience of “picked up” by taxi uncle.

I have to state clearly though, that I didn’t talk much to the driver on my way to United Square.

Okay, maybe he’s just trying to be friendly. Whatever!

  2. yo pegs,

    I perceived it as an annoying msg.
    like i said, every job needs to maintain their professionalism in work.

    but somewhat amusing in the ‘wtf’ sense.
    y doesnt any air stewardess or pretty restaurant waitresses send me a similiar msg too.

    anyway, remember to charge your mobile phone. it looks like its low in battery. haha.

    “hv a gd day

    • haha. true.
      it’s afterall a little unprofessional to just text your customers like that.
      at least have the courtesy to ask if you can send your custmers smses on board before sending abruptly.
      yeah my phone is now charged already, thanks for reminding. hahha.
      “hv a gd day too”

  5. Perhaps he read your blog and knew you do advertorials for people.

    So he want you do “free advertorial” for him.

    Knew that you will blog over this and thus sending you a rather amusing–anger texting.lol
