First a Disney employee with a PVC pipe, now a cab driver with a butter knife. WHO IS NEXT?

I was a taxi driver a second gig for a year and half in Norfolk. I stopped back in October. The first time I had to beat someone's ass, it was a drunk dude in the Navy. He this dude was taking me all over Chesapeake, because he didn't know where the fuck he was going, and he ran the meter up to $120... and tried to blame ME for it. And he tried to walk out on his fare.

Wrong answer. He looked like a good runner (do NOT underestimate the ability of a drunk man to run), so I offered a guy who was sleeping in his car with his brother (he looked like a runner as well) $30 to catch this guy if he runs.

Fortunately, he didn't run. He thought we was some badass who could just keep walking, and that I wasn't going to do anything. I got the guy in a hold, and forced him to drop the cash, and had the guy that I hired to pick it up for me. I told him to keep $40, and I got the rest.

No cops were involved. The incident happened in a 7-Eleven parking lot, and the person on shift there told me that he was going to call the police... until I explained to him what was going on.

I've been physically quite a few times while driving taxis, and I handled it accordingly. No cops involved. And if some idiot were to pull a butter knife on me, it would have been handled the same way.

A butter knife, brought down sideways on the knuckles really stings!
