Today I found an interesting blog. IT is a diary of a taxi driver's diary. The driver was a lecturer with PHD, and now is just an ordinary taxi driver.
I was curious about him, so I read his very first post. In the few first posts, I can sense his depression over sudden change of life status and worries of the impact to his family. But his determination to earn a life from driving a taxi, really deserve a salute. Social status of a taxi driver was thought to be at the lowest standard. This makes no one thought that he is actually highly educated.
No wonder my dad used to complain about people looking down on taxi drivers. Whenever someone looked down on my dad, my dad will boasted about his children. That will surely embarrassed that person.
Being a taxi driver sure is not an easy job. Everyday they have to work under hot sun. Every working night, there will be the risk of being robbed or worse. When tired, can just sleep everywhere.
Among taxi driver, you can find various kind of people. During recession period, many graduates had even become taxi drivers.
However there is the advantage of becoming a taxi driver, you can get free course of tourism and languages.
Even illiterate can speak Englishy!
