Uncle, you don't like that lah! Taxi driver went on rage rampage!
Just when you think road raging only happens during close shaves while driving, a taxi driver takes it one step further by cursing up a storm, taking pictures and threatening to bring in the police - simply because someone blocked his cab for a few minutes!
On Thursday (25 Jan), Facebook user Per Fox Koh shared a video on her page of a Transcab taxi driver swearing at her and taking images of herself and her car.
In her caption, she states she had stopped at an Esso petrol kiosk along Upper Serangoon Road, near Punggol Nasi Lemak, to buy her friend a drink. She left her friend waiting in the car as she was sure she would “only be a second”. She had parked in front of the taxi at that point in time.
As she was paying, there was loud car horn sounds, so she purchased the drink and walked out. The Transcab driver, as seen in the video, was yelling “at the top of his lungs” at her friend.
Koh quickly apologised to him, but the driver immediately went to her side of the car and yelled at her for blocking him.
Koh explained that she was only away for three minutes and made to leave, but the man got even more incensed and started taking pictures of her car. He also threatened to call the police!
She then took the video in retaliation.
After the video ends, Koh stated that the man continued to curse at her as she moved to a gas pump and out of his way. He followed her, despite being so eager to move off that he flared up upon being blocked, and continued cursing and swearing. She did not engage him, and he eventually got tired and drove off.
Koh says the pump attendant and cashier saw the entire incident, and told her that the man had parked at the station for free as he went to the food stalls opposite the road for a meal.
The attendant also mentioned that the man got into the car despite seeing his taxi being blocked, and starting using his horn immediately even though Koh’s friend had been waiting in the car and had told him that the driver was almost done.
Koh then advocated for the man to be off the roads, as he was “a terrible representative of his company and really shouldn’t be put on the front line of customer interaction”.
Netizens in the comments also agreed with her and told her to complain to Transcab.
Are you inclined to agree with them? What should the company do about this driver?
