Briefly.co.za decided to have some fun and asked our readers to share some of their most memorable taxi experiences. Some of the responses were odd, but most were hilarious.
Travelling by train has something in common with commuting via taxi - you generally see or hear something interesting every day.
With this in mind, we asked our readers to share the funniest or weirdest thing they've heard being said by a taxi driver.
Some of the responses were reminiscent of classic taxi driver behaviour, but there were some surprises as well.
Briefly.co.za conducted the online poll via Facebook on Wednesday and nearly 200 responses were shared.
DT Ncwane revealed an unforgettable experience:
"He was driving too fast and we told him to reduce speed we are not on the rush.... He moved to slow lane and reduced speed to 10km/hr and put hazards on. We spent 2 hrs on the road instead of 45 minutes."
Babah Kritikal Mpungose said,
"If it's not a "open from outside" it's a "open from inside" and sometimes you have to push with your hip a little."
Deli Nkosi added,
"In Tembisa he was behind me n on a traffic so his taxi didn't have breaks, so he bumped on me ,I said "you're bumping on me "..he said"u want me to do it again "...and fortunately my car had a tow bar so his taxi lost the bumper....I laughed big time.Guess what he continued driving with that falling bumper."
Siya Dabane Mrangqolo said,
"The other one from Dunoon in Cape Town once went to the garage and bought the 500g hullets sugar because the lady came with R200 note early in the morning."
