Like so many others, I don’t personally own a vehicle. Public transportation exists for a reason, and I think it’s better for me to use these means rather than spend money for the upkeep a car requires. Plus, it’s better for the environment. I get to places by taking buses, carpooling with friends, plus the occasional paid driver. I have an app on my cell phone which gets me a driver in absolutely no time at all, although I really only use it for emergencies. The town I live in is pretty tiny, nor does it have a very many of these hired drivers, so I consistently get the same few drivers each time. A single one in particular is not agreeable to ride with at all since he plays his radio too loudly, keeps all the windows in the car open, and he doesn’t have an air conditioner in his car. I am positive that these drivers must have air conditioning, that a fully functional air conditioner is a required feature for cars that are used for this service, but he continues to drive without any AC. Even though I can’t stand the feeling of wind blowing on my face, I assume he keeps his windows down for AC. I’ve thought about reporting him; however, given the fact I tend to only use the service for emergencies which means I don’t use it often, it just doesn’t seem like it’s worth the hassle. Also I don’t want my reporting to ever affect my ability to get a lift when I need one. The last time he drove up when I sent my request for a driver, I made sure to drop a friendly remark about the lack of air conditioning. My hope is that mentioning the A/C problem will get him to finally have it fixed, however I’ll have to wait until next time to find out.
