” I felt so uncomfortable but felt by saying something I’d be put in my danger with him in control of the cab.”

New submission from AS

I got a cab from Kings Cross to North London at 10 am on a Saturday morning. As soon as I entered the cab the driver started with his lewd comments; who was the lucky man (from last night), was I single, how old was I. He declared he’d be first in line to take me home on a night out and then called his friend to say the same, shouting so I could hear. I felt so uncomfortable but felt by saying something I’d be put in my danger with him in control of the cab.

Something similiar happened in a booked cab the other day, when the driver spent an hour telling me about all the beautiful girls he picks up and that any girl in her right mind would ditch her career and become a stripper for the money.

Neither of these are as bad as when I lived in Cambridge and one night a cab driver got out to open the door for me and proceeded to grope me as I got out. I was too shocked and meek to say anything at the time but it still makes me angry now.
