Garmin Taxi

Posted by Joshua |

Last week I send my car over to Toyota for a regular service, I have to leave it there and pick it up later in the evening.

So I've decided to get a cab and head back to office. It has been sometimes I did not take cab or any public transportation, do feel like a noob don't know where to get cab.

So I walked to a bus stop and flagged down one, the driver is a senior citizen at age 62. How do I know? I don't read face to know the age or either I have super power to know their's age. I just looked at the cab's driver information that have placed infront of the dashboard. lol!

The taxi driver asked me where you want to go? I said "Tropicana" He said "Ok"

I hopped on in and fasten my seatbelt, then I heard "Tit"... "Tit".... "Tit"... He was poking something.

Then I heard a sexy voice "Navigation Recalculate" "turn left in 50 meters". I moved my head forward a bit and I saw "Garmin nuvi" I was like..... OMG! Taxi now so canggih already. Got GPS ler!

I'm damn kepoh one, so we chats during the journey.

Me : Wah! Uncle got GPS ah? So hightech wor.
Uncle :  Ok lar! This GPS really handy. It can bring me anywhere although I didn't know the place exactly.

Thumbs up to this uncle!

Me : So do uncle surf internet?

Uncle starred at me  with the face that I look like an idiot..

Uncle : Internet? I got facebook, friendster and MSN. You got?

Silent pin drop with my jaw dropped. lol!

Me : Uncle very update with technology wor, nowadays a lot senior citizen don't like to learn computer they afraid the computer would electrocuted them.

We giggled and laughed

Uncle :  Ok lar! I love to use the internet for communication and also some reading of forums & blogs.
Me :  BLOG? I'm a blogger, would you be interested to read mine?
Uncle : Sure! Why not? What's your blog address?
Me : My blog ah, tallboyz.blogspot.com maybe you also can follow my Facebook NetworksBlog.
Uncle : Ok!

Reached to my office

Me : Seriously! You are the coolest taxi driver I even know, nice chatting with you.

Uncle smiled at me.

Ok lar! I made it up of the conversation but then this uncle really use the GPS to get locations.

GPS in taxi is not a new news, other countries has implemented to use GPS but then this uncle has took the initiative to make a better service to the customers by purchased the GPS device with his own pocket money. *Salute*

Probably soon our country would have all taxi GPS enable. 1GPS 1Malaysia
