The Taxi Ride...

Posted by beth at 7:44 PM


We have been walking for more than a mile now and so after a few more blocks we decided to call a taxi cab. I guess we had 3 to 5 attempts before somebody called us at the middle of the busy Folsom street...We raced through the open door and just when we were able to catch our breaths the red traffic light turned green..."Where to?", he asked...kuya replied, "Fisherman's Wharf"...

"it's a lovely day! Yesterday was very foggy...", he exclaimed with a grin..."oh really?" kuya said..."O yeah..I think today is a better day because you guys are here..."..we both smiled...and he replied, " you should come here more often..."we just simply laughed....kuya asked, " so how was your day?"...he just said, "business is ok...it's not great but it's ok...usually this is one of the busiest season here in Frisco...but unfortunately things are going slow"...kuya replied, " you should complain then..." The humble taxi driver just said, " I can't really complain because even if I do complain nobody will listen anyway..."

Those were the striking words that left me thinking on that particular day...Why do I always complain?I guess he's right...In my everyday life I do have tons of whining and complaining to do...and unfortunately nobody would bother to listen....hehehe....I think he is indeed right...I shouldn't complain...as a matter of fact I should start on being thankful for my everyday blessings...I'm so blessed to be given another day to start over...and I'm so blessed to be given another day to do something right...no more complaints...

Whenever I feel like whining...I'd remember the wise taxi driver who once said, " We can complain...but we should also bear in mind that nobody listens anyway..." :-D

Spicy foods seem to help, but interestingly enough, bland comfort foods like mashed potatoes, noodles and mac&cheese also seem to work. Of course, drink plenty of fluids and something with potassium can't hurt. Hmm...black bean burrito with salsa might work well
