After waiting 1 hour and 30 minutes for a cab at Joe Bolgnas Restaurant for a initial wait time of 20-30 minutes and repeatedly calling to check on the cabs arrival status and getting numerous updates as in "I'll put in a note to check on it " and "5 more minutes" I finally found a cab in front of one of the other bars on South Limestone after walking quite a while to other locations . Upon getting in the cab , I told Derrick the cab driver of cab #5 that i had been waiting 1 hour and 30 minutes for a cab, And asked what i could of done differently to get a cab much sooner . Even though i understood it was a busy night ,I am very patient and can understand wait times can surpass the time given. I was given the explanation that i should of had personal cab drivers phone numbers so i could of called them directly . I told Derrick that i didn't save or have any other cab drivers phone numbers and asked for another solution to fix the issue in the future , and he stated that i could shut (excuse the language) the fuck up because i got picked up . I told Derrick that i didn't appreciate being spoke to that way and Derrick told me he didn't wan't to hear it . As i explained to Derrick i had not spoken to him rudely or cussed him out he should not speak to me that way , as i was customer . He said you can get the fuck out and pay me , so for the $12.75 cab fare i gave him $13.00 and called the Police on the rest of my 1 to 2 mile walk.
Derrick sucks

Derrick is so extremely rude he is the reason I.quit taking cabs.Trys to act like he is driving a cab in Manhattan.Uses vulgar language and has very poor manners.Remember these guys are suppose to be professional drivers but mostly overweight drunks that smell bad (use deodorant Derrick please stinky) & why do u think they drive cabs they could never work with a boss standing over them too lazy & would be fired

So why did you give him a .25 tip and what did you gain by calling the police?

Because when he slammed on the brakes like he did , It was shock and i just wanted to get out there any way at that time . The situation had become dangerous and i wasn't too concerned about the quarter. Before we stopped he said " Your going to get the F-out and your going to pay me " and i said what does that mean i have every intention in paying you . I never understood that ??

Bull crap, the reason you were thrown out of the cab is because you were complaining about having to wait for a cab and you thought the ride should be free since you waited... even saying you were not going to pay the fare and being a patronizing a$$hole.

Guess what? You pay, or you go to jail.

Drivers are independent contractors. When it gets busy on a Saturday night, they have to take care of their regular riders before picking up calls off the board.

You would be wrong. I was upset because i haven't wait for a cab for 2 hours since the Kentucky Derby in Louisville and didn't understand at the time after i called multiple times and getting the run around . I never had the intention of NOT paying , I don't remember seeing you that day so how would you know and this wasn't on a Saturday night , Where did you get Saturday from ?

Why didnt you just record it with your Iphone and then post it on youtube? It probably would have got national attention like the Today show or Jimmy Fallon! Iam always ready to record some idiot cab driver that talks s**t to me!

That guy ate one of my children once. It was kind of scary. Then he threw me out of the cab in the middle of North Broadway.

You guys really amaze me. It seems a lot of these posts are coming from the same guy. I'm sorry ur ass hurt because a driver threw u out. But I guarantee if u weren't a dick to him he would gladly took u home. On the other hand all of these posts r tracked. And anything that has been said can be tracked to ur computer. So I hope what ur saying is the absolute truth. Because if it's not and this derrek person finds out u could be sued or have criminal charges pressed against u. Just some food for thought!

All i have spoken is the truth and as said a email was sent to the supervisor at Yellow cab , but no response was given . I would gladly accept a apology , but nothing has been given . I never gave Derrick a attitude all i asked was what could have been done differently for me to get a cab in less then 2 hours in Lexington on a Wednesday night (Please read the 1st post) NOT Once did i EVER curse at him or give him a hard time , he was just getting tired of me asking why it took so long so he said and he didn't want to hear it anymore . That was no reason to tell me to shut the fuck up and get out of the cab . That's what i don't understand ?

Unacceptable customer service , these cab drivers should learn to do there job respectfully and professionally.

I can see it now, after answering the same question 50 effing times and you still wanting to ask the same thing again, he had had enough... he was tired of hearing your whiney ass.
