Knowing your driver
I’ve been a “Hack” (CabDriver; Defined in Webster as : working for hire especially with mediocre professional standards) in Las Vegas for 5 years now. I am one of the younger drivers in town who figured it out quick. I tend to be accepted by the “old timers” more then the “Young Punks”. I like to look at myself as a very old feeling and thinking 29 year old.
Growing up I had a crazy plan of working in all types of work and started a list of dream jobs that just sounded cool. What do you know the list has almost been checked off completly. I’ve dug ditches to managed a large multi million dollar company, all with very little college. I started driving cab to simply check off another job from the list. Little did I know that I would be stuck here for longer than I wanted due to the economy and needing to take care of my family.
I was told to start this blog to share my stories I’ve gathered over the years. Ive been talking about writing a book with the same theme but this will have to do for now. You may ask how many stories can you have in only 5 years. Well, as I said, I’ve made friends with the old timers. So I plan to take you though my life as a Hack and share some of the stories I’ve heard over the years.
