Driving a taxi is the best job in the world!

I have a Masters Degree in education and I taught history in local schools for 10 years. I lived in Oceanside for a while and drove cabs for Yellow Cab down there. Then I moved to a meditation retreat in Nevada City for a year and ran the kitchen there. But I realized that I really love driving a cab – it’s my calling. I don’t do it for the money; as long as I have enough for food and rent, I’m happy.

Driving a cab I run into humanity every day and it lets me help people, which makes my day. I believe that if you treat others right, it will come back to you.One day I picked up a lady and took her all the way to Placerville even though all she had was a few dollars. The next day I was rewarded with a very high-paying fare.

Another thing I love about driving a taxi is I get to meet people from all over the world. It’s really fun to see our city through someone’s eyes who has never been here before, and tourists are always happy and excited to be here. Once I picked up a man in Elk Grove who was from China. He was staying with his cousin who helped him get the cab because the man didn’t speak any English. He wanted to go to Daly City near San Francisco to visit his friend. Since he didn’t speak English we couldn’t talk, so all the way there he played Chinese music for me. It was a long drive but very fun and interesting.
