Howdy all. Let me set the scene. I live at home. No car. gf lives at home and shares a car with sister. It was sisters turn to have the car tonight.
gf in my house decides wants to go home. My parents are out so can't give her a lift (about a 5 mins drive but ****far to walk/crappy to get a bus). So upon finding out that her father is sleeping decides to ring a taxi, grand.
While ringing the taxi she gets a message from daddy saying he'll be over to pick her up. After the 5 seconds spent reading the message I ring the taxi firm back up and say that the cab isn't needed anymore. The "friendly lady" at the other end of the phone claims that a €7 cancellation fee has to be paid as it's a saturday night. Needless to say I tell her where to go.
But my question is, is this fee legal? I mean there was no ****ing way I was paying this fee, besides how do they expect to collect it? Especially with the likes of people heading into town on a saturday night.
This is a bit of a rant and I apologise but im really pissed off that they would try to slap that on me after the space of no more than 30 seconds and the woman on the phone was quite frankly being a bitch. If this is illegal I am determined to make some form of complaint as it's ridiculous as I called back immediately and I'm quite sure this taxi company doesn't fly choppers.
