grateful cab driver

May 17, 2013

I take a lot of cabs. I understand that the city charges them 5% for every credit card transaction they have to run. I’m sympathetic to that and always pay cash when I can (even though one cab driver kicked me out of his cab in the Tenderloin in the middle of the night because I didn’t have cash… I digress).

Tonight I didn’t have cash and I mentioned it to my cab driver.  She said “No problem, we love when you have cash and understand sometimes you don’t.  We are just grateful when you do.”

I said “Well since you said that, I have something for you” and handed her a sticker.  She clutched it to her chest and looked back at me, tearing up.  We had a beautiful conversation about gratitude and she asked me for another one for her mom.  She was going to give it to her for mother’s day, and they would both cry.

Then she randomly started telling me about her knitting class on the weekends.  She must be grateful for it 🙂

I’m grateful for her.
