    Money money! Probably why you can wait for hours for a cab at around opening time and after three phone calls to ask where is the cab you are told “sorry not our fault the driver reported that you were not there”.
    But I was there. Might of been compounded by the fact that I wanted to pay by card. Big mistake. Alice Taxis. Mmmm.
