Jack : Cab Drivers are Tight

When a taxi driver asks you to "pay upfront", he means he wants a deposit on the eventual total.

That is, if he asks you to pay $40 upfront, you still have to pay the rest when you get home. You do not get the extra $13 erased off your bill.

Fuck taxis and their fucking interpretation of paying upfront. With that $13, I could have gotten a nice pasta dish at CAFE STAX!!!

what the hell kind of taxi makes you pay upfront??? You NEVER pay Australian taxis upfront.
I think you've been had.

When it is 2am and some drunk guy wants you to drive halfway across Melbourne, they ask you to pay upfront.

It's happened to me quite a few times when I catch taxis in the CBD late at night. And yes they are real cabs and the driver's face matches the photo's face.
