I went to a party at a friend’s house for the New Year. It was a cool party. It became uncool, however, through no fault of the hostess, at about 2am. My wife and I had planned to take a cab to my mom’s house, only a few miles away, where the spare room was all set up for us. We had both been drinking, and had no intention of driving anywhere.
So I went to Google maps and looked for a cab in the area. First company didn’t even answer the phone. The second one told me there was a two hour wait for a cab. The third said they had no cabs.
Was this a shock? Were they unprepared for people to want cabs after parties for New Year’s? I can’t imagine demand was much higher than last year.
It worked out okay, as the hostess had a fold-out couch that we could sleep on that wasn’t even uncomfortable. But it was annoying. You suck, Annapolis cab companies.
