If you have cause to use the services of "A Happy Cab" taxi service, beware of hidden fare fees. I was forced touse their services this morning and the following ensued:
My car broke down on I-95 North. I called "A Happy Cab" taxi service and asked if they had a flat fee for their services, as I had been told by a few friends.
Stacey Dixon, formerly Stacey Crumb, formerly involved with the auto detailing shop "Styling FX", informed me that they charged a flat fee of five dollars for eight miles.

I explained that I was on I-95 North, one mile south of the Woodbine exit 14 and needed to get to the Woodbine jail. I asked if they could get me to work. She cheerily replied they could, and had me explain again where I was, and made no mention that they would be including the mileage from their business site in the eight miles. I naturally thought that the eight miles would not start until they picked me up, as other cab companies start their meters when they pick up the fare. I had intended to pay ten dollars, anyway.

When the cab driver had me half-way to work, he asked if I had been told that the flat fee would be twenty-five dollars, because they included the mileage from their business site to where they picked me up on I-95 North.

When I got to work, I called "A Happy Cab" and spoke with Stacey, I informed her that I did not appreciate not being told that the fare would be five times the amount she quoted over the phone and that I would be sharing my experience with my friends and acquaintances. She responded "I should have left you on the side of the road" and then hung up on me; How very professional of her.
Thanks for the warning

Before you go head long into a verbal contract you should have considered the fact that you were 14 miles from no where. How could a driver go all the way to Woodbine and drop you off and make his way back to at least exit 3 before he would be in a zone that could produce another cab rider. This would take far more time and money than $8.00 you are some kind of dumb to think people want to pick you up off side of I-95 and drop you off in three miles from the exit have to travel back to I-95 enter south bound and exit 3.

Just the fuel alone could come close to two gallons. no wear and tear on auto let alone the driver being paid for his time of better than an hour from start to finish. I hope you tipped the driver well.

Cabs aren't cheap. Talk sometimes is. Next time ask more questions. Too bad for the misunderstanding. What we have here is a failure to communicate.

You drive from one end of this country to the other for less than $10. $25 is highway robbery. No pun intended.

I think the point was that he was quoted one price and charged another after he was already obligated to pay.

Yeah, little difference from a free Georgia college education at a regional 2 or 4 year college for old people on a space available basis..........that won't be used for anything except so called bragging rights.
