As with most people today, money is very tight for me. Each dollar I spend takes a prybar to open my fingers from clenching said cash.
I saved up to be able to see my dad. He is dying. He has leukemia.
Flying out of O’Hare, I have to wait until tomorrow for my flight. As a result, I have found this is a city of people who value a quick buck over all else.
The prime example is the taxis. I catch a cab at the airport. The city pays guys to hail cabs. Something I could do myself, but no, you cannot hail a cab yourself.
I tell the cab hailer where I am staying. He tells the cabbie the address. Sounds simple, right?
Nope. The cabbie will drive away for a mile before asking the address. You are held captive. And, he will purposely miss the turn so he can add miles to tge fare. You are being hijacked.
I curse this city! I decry that you will have no championship in any sport until you repent and learn to love your fellow human being and not see him as a target to rob.
