Ripped Off

It happened to us twice. A taxi driver tried to rip us off. The first time, he succeeded. I haven’t had something like this happen to me in such a long time, that I was completely flumoxed when it happened. He overcharged (wanted 10YTL), then when my mother gave him a 20, he switched it in his hand to a 1, and claimed that she had only given him 1. We could have gotten out then and there, but I was so confused (thinking my mother had it wrong, which at this point I’m pretty sure she didn’t), that I gave him another 11… I’m embarassed. Luckily it’s not such a great loss. Second time it happened, we just told the taxi driver to go take a hike.
