When Good Concerts Go Bad

So the other night I went to see GWAR. A friend of mine from out of town went with me, so we just got a room in Orlando rather than him drive all the way back home after the show. We also decided to be lazy and took a cab from the motel to the show. As always the concert was great. It was the first time Dylan had seen GWAR and he wasn't disappointed. We were in the front row so we were drenched. When we got outside we asked a cabbie if he knew where Old Town was because we needed to get to the Days Inn that was next to it. *Old Town is basicly a tourist trap spot with some shops, a couple bars, and a few amusement park rides* He said he knew where it was so we got in the cab and were off. Well after driving for 20 minutes he gets on the CB and asks the guy at dispatch how to get there. My jaw nearly hit the floor. I couldn't believe this guy drove for 20 minutes and had no idea where he was going. So the dispatch guy tells him he was going the opposite direction. When we finally get to where we're going the fare was $31.50. It only cost us $15.50 to get to the show. He said he would reduce the fare to $25.00 and I still told him to kiss our ass. I got out of the cab and called the number that was on the side. I told them that I wanted to talk to a supervisor cause one of their cabbies were trying to rip us off. Dylan told the cab driver that he would pay him $15.00 cause that's what we paid to get to the place. I told him not to even pay him that because he shouldn't get a fucking dime for getting lost and then trying to charge us for his mistake. Then the cabbie gets out and gets up in my face and starts yelling at me. I told him he needed to get out of my face before I knocked his ass out in middle of the parking lot. He got back in his cab and started to take off, but I had his back door open. I told his supervisor that he better get on the radio and tell his cabbie to put his car in park. The cabbie gets out again and starts yelling and coming toward me. So I looked at him, told him I was going to kick his ass, then chased him around the cab. He got in his cab and took off. He ended up getting the $15 from Dylan, which I wasn't happy about, but decided "Fuck it". We started walking to a fast food place but they were closed and so we decided to go back to the room, get a well needed shower, and pass out. Then a cop pulls up, YAY. I knew she was there for me so I just walked up to her car. She got out and asked if we were arguing with a cabbie in front of the motel. I said it was me and started to tell her everything that happened. I didn't even think about what we looked like until the cop looked at Dylan and asked "What the hell happened to you??". Here we were covered from head to toe in fake blood and trying to explain why to the police. He said it was fake and she said it didn't look like it, it looked more like someone beat the shit out of him. I was trying to assure her that it was fake and we just came from a concert where the band dowses the crowd with fake blood.Then the back-up unit arrives, gets out of his car, and says "What the fuck happened to them??". They then tell us that the security guard at the motel called in a disturbance call. I told the the whole story of what happened and they let us go after a few minutes. We then went strait to our room and got the night over with. And that is how I saved Christmas.

its always bad after a gwar show when the cops come and freak over the fake blood...that story coulda gone bad..but Im glad it turned out ok...I couldnt believe the cabbie drove for 20 minutes and then called dispatch asking how to get there..that is unbelievable
I was in total shock when he did that. How are you going to hire a cab driver that doesn't know the area?? We're not talking about a run down shack at the end of a dirt road some where. The stupid bastard probably doesn't know how to get to Disney World either.
(laughs)...even I know how to get to disney and I havent been down there in over 10 years.
