Dubai taxi drivers are the most inhospitable

Here is a letter from a friend of mine about his experience in Dubai…
I’ve been to Manila, Hongkong, Singapore, Jeddah, Kuwait and Manama but of all the cities I’ve been before, Dubai taxi drivers are the rudest. Not only sometimes but almost all the time they are showing impolite manners to passengers.
I heared so many stories about ill-mannered Dubai cab drivers. There are some harrasing ladies, some don’t know the policy of “the customer is always right” because they tend to be disrespecful to passengers. They think that they are more superior then their passengers and they feel that you owe them a lot if you are going to ride in their cab.
It’s also realy disgusting because of the foul smells and untidy interiors of the cab.
One specific example was last night at around 8 pm I’m aboard a Dubai Taxi cab with plate number 25030, on our way going to Karama while on Makhtoum bridge the driver put his right hand on my private parts and started caressing it while saying “Filipino dick is hard pare”. I told him stop and stare at him angrily, and he stopped.
To all your kabayan readers please be careful to stupid Dubai cab drivers because they are the most inhospitable in the world.
I hope Dubai Roads and Transport Authority will give more training on cab drivers, specially on being hospitable, tidy and respectful because tourism now is the bread and butter of Dubai.
