from JFK to Brooklyn Cruise terminal

22 Aug 2011 - New York

I wonder how many tourists my cabbie has screwed out of fifty bucks? I get in the cab at JFK headed to the Brooklyn Cruise terminal, a $50 fare, max. Just outside of the terminal he pops the hood and climbs out. When he gets back in the cab he tells me the meter is busted but he knows how much the fare is, "about a hundred". The meter and the CC reader are dead.

We get to the terminal, I give him $50 and ask if he wants me to get one of the dozens of NYPD guys hanging around to get the "rest of the fare", he just takes off.

asshole.
