Default Getting a Taxi

I got off of the Mediterranea in Port Everglades and the lady that I was going to share a cab with wanted to go shopping for shoes. She is from Canada and they don't have Pay-Less shoe stores there. She wanted to go to a store near the airport. Every taxi driver told her, "no, I will only take you to the airport." We finally had to find a sheriff deputy to get us a taxi. I couldn't believe it.

Ok end of gripe.

can i ask--are you griping because she wanted to go shopping for shoes or that the taxi's would not take you there? a car could have been reserved for shopping after the cruise instead of relying on taxi's, or you could have gotten to the airport on your own and not been involved on the shopping trip. i fail to see what the gripe is here---the taxi's or the shoes

My gripe is that a taxi would not take me were I wanted to go. I thought that was pretty clear by the fact that I said we had to get a deputy to tell the taxi to take us.

not trying to justify the cab drivers actions becasue they were wrong-- what he was trying to do is short hauls making quick trips between the port and the airport hoping for good tips in a short period of time

First of all, real men don't shop at all, let alone for shoes. Second, they don't have nice shoes at Payless anyway! Get on home, the cruise is over!
