Attacked by the FDNY

If you've been reading my blog for any length of time, you know there's quite a lot of weird occurrences that can happen inside of a cab, beyond the more mundane stuff like trips to Penn Station you can meet all sorts of varieties of characters for example TV personalities, billionaires, 7 foot tall cross dressers, and beautiful models .. and when objects are moving around the city bad or good things can happen, accidents, violence, fights, disputes, VIOLENCE SUCKS BAD AND MR. TAXI DUDE JUST DOESN'T LIKE DEALING WITH IT Most recently, heres an incident that happened involving the FDNY.... 


Attacked by the FDNY..... 


I was on my way up to Harlem which is not a destination I drive to very often perhaps less than a few times a week and most likely the west side. This later afternoon during summer, I was in a line of traffic and we were waiting for some fire engines to pull over. I had assumed there may have been some fire in the vicinity so I waited for the fire trucks to park. The fire trucks pulled to the left and some firemen got off the rig. A few cars began passing the fire engine and men. Then as it became my turn to go past, a giant burley firefighter jumped on the hood of my cab and slammed his fists into it! It totally shocked me! He yelled at me “YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO BE A PROFESSIONAL!” Then I tried to backup but could'nt hmm. Another firefighter comes out and starts pounding his fists on my door! Can you believe it! My passengers were freaking out, praying that the police would not come! Nuts! I was so shocked I didnt wanna fight the FDNY or the NYPD so I normally just run away from violent stuff! What I had misjudged is that the fire truck was parking in the garage at 3rd Avenue instead of responding to a fire at this location. The reason is I just simple dont drive upto 123nd Street that often. An honest mistake! I simply did nothing and drove on after they parked the fire engine – nor did I file a complaint with the FDNY, I simply let them get away with attacking my cab. Violence sucks bad! This was at Ladder FDNY Engine 35 ,Ladder 14 & Battalion 12.
