This stranger said hello to me. What sort of scam is this?!? Someone looked at me weird in the mall... this guy was dressed nice in a suit. Is this a new scam? Whats he trying to do!! Help me im scared!

Some guy really needed a cab and didnt have a phone... pretty simple isnt it?



Then he should act like a regular human and not an entitled little shit. You will find that the response is often a lot better that way.

Pretty rich coming from you

If it was a cop in this story instead of a random citizen you'd be trying to figure out why the officer wanted to assault the individual, making wild accusations and jumping to ludicrous conclusions.

Goddamnit, I was just going to say the same thing. Weird how that straightforward, no reading between the lines approach doesn't work if there's a cop involved.

Just wait for his inevitable "Officers should be held to a higher standard" response.

Have you ever thought of the approach. Perception is everything in life.

Had the individual come up and had asked politely and explained their phone is dead or whatever the case may be and they would appreciate it if you could call them a cab. Story would be entirely different.

Walk up to a stranger today while he's doing something else, interrupt him and TELL him what to do for you and if he doesn't listen TELL him what to do again.

See how that goes for you.

Probably been said already but I think all cabs have inside camera's now. So they don't care who called in if someone bails out on the cab fare. Sounds like this entitled douche needed some help but had no sense of how to ask someone for a favour.

Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean that they are NOT out to get you.

It sounds to me like this was a case of attempted taxi fraud. How ghetto is that.

Lot's of scams going around. I had some odd homie g type white dude at the TD in bridlewood give me this sob story about getting drunk and not being able to drive his bosses car home (needed money for a cab he claimed.) The drug thing in this city is getting ridiculous.

I had some scrawny millennial puke at a flames game try to troll me and my gf at a flames game when we were taking pictures by making dumb faces photo bombing. He tried to stare me down But you know what..it's not worth it. Too many cell phones and world star idiots these days never mind getting a lifetime ban from the saddle dome because of some entitled prick. Kids these days have some serious balls, "I'm not asking, I'm telling you." What a clown. That kinda talk will get your ass beat.

You take MASSIVE leaps to crazy conclusions when it involves CPS in any scenario. But here you want to just give a guy the benefit of the doubt and take it at face value. Alrighty then

Thanks for thinking of me.

...but seriously. I was doing something I find important (work and golf, not at the same time) And also, I don't really care to weigh in. Sorry to disappoint you.
