The journey from the airport to the hotel was an adventure, as usual. I had made arrangements to meet up with a couple bloggers to take a cab to the hotel from the airport, and due to my flight being late I think it threw all of us off a little bit. While waiting for me, they found a fourth person to ride in our cab with us, which worked out great- the more the merrier! We all tossed our bags in and I had the joy of sitting up front with this "interesting" cab driver.
I noticed right off the bat that he had a temporary driving permit which expires on 10/4/2013. I quickly did the math and computed that he had a short period of time before he had to make another permit. One of my fellow bloggers was very inquisitive as she noticed the "ticker" was not going. Yep, we had gotten into this cab and not asked if he knew where to go and what his rates were.
She brought it to his attention that the "ticker" was not going and we needed to know what the rate was. He said, "You will find out when we get there!" Yikes- I had all sorts of dollar figures floating through my head. We then brought it to his attention that he should know what the flat rate was, which he did not know. Well- this cab ride got more interesting. He became more frustrated and finally he said, "$50!"
Well, of course, we were all four talking; isn't that what bloggers do when they ride in a cab together? Our cab driver conveniently pulled into a driveway of the wrong hotel. Thankfully one of us noticed and our hotel was just down the block. Whhheewww! We arrived safely, in one piece; and had a fun blog post to boot!
For the record, I am now riding the MARTA, it's very simple and easy to use. I know what my fare will be and I have found fellow bloggers to ride around with. Type A Parent Conference continues to rock my world and 2014, wow- what can I say? Atlanta, Walt Disney World, and Disneyland for TypeA! Lots of inspiration and encouragement that I have never found elsewhere- TypeA rocks my world. After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
