I was woken up by voices at 4am yesterday. My apartment is on the second storey, near the guard house, so I see and hear alot more than other residents.
Apparently, someone came home in a cab but didn't have any money to pay the driver who was getting quite mad. The security guard stepped in to mediate and ended up footing the $25 fare first. I hope he gets his money back from the passenger, a Caucasian man living upstairs.
This isn't the first time it has happened. Last time it was a young lady who couldn't pay. The cab driver created a commotion. He called his company to make a report and threatened to call the police until the guards stopped him. I heard everything.
The ranting didn't go away until her male friend came in a car to help pay up. The cab driver sped off unhappily having wasted precious time. The woman's friend cursed at the cab driver for kicking up a fuss over less than $20.
From newspaper reports, I've heard about passengers who don't pay. It is surprising to find this happening in our very own estate. In fact, in the very same block that I live in.
