Where did I say it was? Do you drive here? I've owned 3 cars here and have been driving on these road off & on for almost 30 years. I've sold my cars now and limit myself to public transport because of the traffic woes and my former HBP. Unless you drive and have driven here for a couple of years, you don't know what makes sense here or not. Also, as x9200 said, what you told the driver was probably confusing as the devil and trying to figure out what a foreigners accent was actually saying didn't help him much either. Sorry, still cannot sympathize.xaria wrote: The Express way is not always the fastest way. For a distance of 2.5 km it does not really make sense to go to expressway.
Not necessarily. From Tanjong Pagar to Suntec the expressway is significantly faster than going via Robertson road / Shenton way!xaria wrote:@SMS

They drive 12 hours a day and have to deal with 36 or more personalities. They cannot adapt as easily as us to the different cultures and nationalities, so I cut them some slack if they don't understand me or go the "longer route" by mistake. What is $.60 or $2 to you?
It means a lot to them if you complain to the taxi company as they won't be able to get their "clean record" bonus of a few hundred dollars.
I love my taxi rides and I love chatting with the uncles in broken english and hand gestures. They teach me a lot about Singapore roads and humility. So cut them some slack.... can or cannot?
Seriously, with the amount you pay for taxis in Singapore I'd happily pay the money. In fact I tend to tip nice taxi drivers in Singapore.xaria wrote:
