Here's confirmation cabbies have the inside running on making personal contacts. Reader Reg has sent this link concerning Ahmed Ibrahim, a 50 year old New York cabbie of Egyptian descent. Raine runs a casual dating service for his passengers. And very successful he is too, having matched many single passengers with each other,
"New York is a very tough city for dating," Ibrahim mused while driving through the West Village recently. "I have heard a lot of crying in this cab, a lot of fighting and a lot of broken hearts. Sometimes great people were just missing each other by minutes; one would get in my cab just as another had gotten out," he said.
So using their phone numbers Ahmed arranges a blind date. Too easy. Only in America.
