1)  When you arrived at yak 3 sub soi of Soi 56 you should have been telling him to turn.  As he went past it you should have demanded him to stop.  If he didn't stop, open the door a little so that the dome light will go on.  That will get his attention.  If he stops you can get out but I don't know how far you had to go down the sub soi.

 

2)  When he refused to take you back to the sub soi and demanded payment say ok.  Then take a picture of his ID on the front left dashboard.  When he feigned physical confrontation take his picture.  He really won't like that.

 

3)  Exit vehicle and start walking back to your destination after paying him.  Make sure he doesn't try to run you over!  

 

4) contact the office of DLT as was previously mentioned.

Trouble is, that if you said that, the taxi driver wouldn't have a clue what you are saying. Just might have worked with some HiSo Thai. Phrase books are neither use nor ornament in these situations.

 

Better to have said, tong bai, tong bai and then cap lot. Though why you would say "drive car" after you had passed your turning, I don't know. I would have said "Yut" and then "U- turn"

The easiest solution when he threatened you was to fall to the ground and start crying. A quick sh**e in the pants adds to the realism. Then he will just leave you there, and you wont have to pay.

 

But hey, as said, the next time pay him as you are taking a pic of his license card. It will ruin his day. The other day I was standing outside my building smoking a dog end contemplating whether I should cab it or BTS it. A cab with the get in light pulled up. I dropped the dog end, pulled out my phone, leaned in, opened the door and told him my destination. No no, he says, No? I replied, and I took a pic of his card and closed the door, stepped back and another cab pulled up. As I leaned into the second cab, cabbie one opened his window and began gesturing me to get in looking in his mirror. I put my phone to my ear and go in the second one. Gave the dude something to think about.

We had enough comments about taxi drivers and it seems some people have constantly problems with them and other people have almost never problems.

Now the question is: Do those guys who have constantly bad experience have just bad luck all the time? Or are there other reasons that they have always problems with taxi drivers while other people don't have these problems...

Bad body odour is usually the problem. Nothing winds a taxi driver up more than a smelly passenger.

Spot on spidey lad, you can write it anyway you want, saying it right is another thing.

Hard to say maybe it was a language barrier and a bit of a greedy driver. 

 

Similar happens everywhere in the Workd sometime. Worked for a company 20+ years at the time of the incident. Worked out of California office headquarters in Dallas TX suburb.

 

Went to the headquarters at least 40 times. It’s always been the same place and still is 30 years later. 

 

First St time I went to office by taxi usually rented a car. This time there were several company cars so they said taxi in and use one of the cars. 

 

Taxi stops in front of a building and says ok youve arrived. I told him this is not the right place. He wanted to argue and I wouldn’t 

bait him. Finally I used GPS and showed him the location. 

 

West Divison street where the headquarters where was 3 or 4 miles of titty bars and used cars. They’ve cleaned it up a bit now .

If the guys who say they never have problems can go to Sukhumvit Soi 11 at about midnight... see how they get on obtaining a metered taxi...  

 

issues are generally related to your location, your destination and whether or not the driver is an a33ho!e !!!

Revenge is a dish best served cold. Same as sprouts if you really want some ripping farts.
