Well said st driver! I've been a driver and a slug for 13 years and feel exactly as you do. Not sure where all this tip nonsense started from. On the days I drive, I personally wouldn't take any money from slugs. I just appreciate getting back and forth to work in a decent time.

Some 3rd slugs apparently don't mind paying. I had a "take a third?" the other day, and my response was "for $5". He whipped out a five and climbed in smiling.

The more you talk about it, the longer this lasts and the more credibility it gains. It's amazing how much distance this thread has gotten. I for one have been interested in seeing the various reactions/assertions in regards to this topic. It has definitely shown the best and worst amongst both drivers and slugs alike.

Don't you know: if you ignore it, it will just go away.

I agree , I can't beleive how much talk this generated. But I think we should just ride in and be thankful someone is giving you a ride.

Wouldn't it be nice if slugs were truly thankful, 22? Instead, most are now acting as if a free ride is their god-given right.

They would show their thanks by turning off the cell phone, taking their newspapers with them, and not whining about every little thing along the way. And close the doors gently when they get out.



Keep slugging alive - tip your driver today!

Today is the last day to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. On Monday the new laws kick into play.

PS - All kidding aside - tip the driver.
PPS - If the HOT lanes go in and HOV3 stays free it should pick up more drivers.
PPPS - If HOT moves in that 3 bedroom, 2 bath condo in Ballston will start looking real good. Kiss Prince William, Stafford, and Spotsylvania good-bye.

22,

Maybe YOU should be thankful that people ride with you, saving you time, gas, $$, and stress. Remember, tis the season to be thankful. And I'm thankful (even if you don't tip me)that I can help you get to work faster.

Cheers,

Glacier
