Got a cab from Alexandra Road to Tiong Bahru yesterday for lunch.
Arriving at our destination 10 minutes later, uncle suddenly tells us 'Aiya, I forgot to turn on the meter!' WHAT!!! Originally I thought would have been a case of cabbie trying to cheat us.
But he charged us SGD 4.00 for the ride. Christee said it would normally be more, close to SGD5. Then, I asked for a receipt.
"Sure, no problem"
Barely 1o seconds later, he suddenly exclaimed, "Aiya, I turn off the meter" HUHHHHHH!!!
Fidgeting with his meter, he managed to print a receipt with no mileage, no change in time for me. Just a receipt that indicated SGD4.00...
