Tesfay on The People You Meet in Taxis

"I have been driving here for about six years.  I like driving taxis because I meet a lot of different people and encounter different cultures.  All of the world is in Washington so I enjoy driving a cab.  I meet a lot of nice people and bad people too…have dealt with robbery and all of that.

"Good people here, they always talk to you.  They are moral and allow you to work.  The bad people, they rob you.  I was robbed a few years ago at gunpoint in Southeast.  After that, I became more alert. Someone, he seems like he is going to kill you, you don’t pick him up.  Other than that, I pick up a lot of people and I still go to Southeast a lot."
