I awake groggy from the weekend. And I want to call in sick. (ZzZzzzzzZZzzz.)
Ugh! I should work! (ZzzZZZzzz.)
Besides, the road might be a good distraction from my mental state. (ZZzzZZzzz.)
Okay! Okay! I’ll get up!
It’s a (now) rare foggy day in ‘ol San Francisco. I’m slogging up through the Citizen’s Cab lot and headed towards the office.
As I near, Sammy – the new office guy who’s taken over Kojak’s morning shift, passes me. He’s leaving the office with some new West African driver. They’re heading out to the lot … with a jump starter.
Note: Kojak has been moved to the afternoon office shift for some unknown reason. (Unknown to me, anyway.) This is how the cab biz works. Drivers, office workers; one day ya see ‘em. And the next, they’re gone.
