  1. “Big shocker!” :O I’m sure a lot of females that have utilized the taxi service any time of day know exactly who this is. hint: starts with an “s” and ends in icko.
    Thanks for coming forward who ever you’s are.

  2. if this is the cab driver im thinking of; he’s been complained about before to the owner. by a few female passengers..the owner’s response: “im not doing trips to “your town” because there’s too many complainers!” instead of being concerned for his patrons he is more concerned that his drivers are getting a bad rap! what a shame!
