Your smile for today

We arrived after a long overseas flight to JFK. I must have looked like I just fell off the turnip truck, because a guy approached us near the taxi line and tried to convince me that yellow cabs only ran to Queens and Brooklyn; if I needed to get to Midtown, I should ride in his black car. I told him "shame on you". Wonder if this works?

Someone will fall for it. The best way to stop it is to say, my cousin works for the Taxi and Limousine Commission, what is your name and license number.

I keep the Manhattan DA's and US Attorney's office phone numbers by my desk and if a robo call slips through I ask them to call me at work in 30 minutes and give them one of those numbers.
