We were given an extra amount on a ride. The person said for us to go out and have a nice dinner together but the following day there was a need that a rider could not afford the entire fare so we forwarded the amount given charging the ride much less.
We had a customer for the past few months that has moved out of town and they said we were appreciated and that we had been the “spoke in my wheel”. This person will be missed dearly.
We have a new driver…Karen Johnson. Also she happens to be our neighbor at our new residence.
We have changed our place of residence to 9 Jackson St. It’s a better location for the taxi business!
Debbie and I stopped for a break in town and she noticed a person sitting alone. She called out to him to talk and after a long conversation discovered this soft spoken gentleman was homeless and had only the clothes he was wearing. The next night we offered him to sleep in our taxi and for the next two nights he did. We got him food and extra clothes…took him for a shower and gave him a little money. He became a blessing to us with his eagerness to help us in return and now is living with us cooking and cleaning.
The couple we took to Grace Community Church paid back the $10 loan.
There was a person who called and needed to get some jugs filled with water, so Debbie and I took them to the visitor information center. Also they come up short 12 cent in getting a soda drink for themselves and two kids so we gave a dollar to cover it and told them to keep the change.
The couple we took to Grace Community Church also needed some cash today and we forwarded them $10 until they get their check
Monday and Today we took a couple to Grace Community Church to get food…the cost of the taxi ride was $42 round trip…we decided to help them out by charging only $10 round trip on both days
Yesterday we got a call from a gentleman who was impressed with our website. We gave him a ride that came to $9…He gave us $40 and asked us to help the next person who needed help. Well it so happen the next person did need help…a woman and two children needed a ride to school to register her kids. At first we were going to get them drinks and snack but after talking to her decided to give her $20 and we did.
