IC and I spent the afternoon together as we do every Friday to talk shop. Afterwards, I walked her down to the intersection to keep her company while she waited for a taxi. There were quite a few people similarly occupied, all claiming their respective corners. But then IC spotted a taxi and we ran for it. I heard a woman yelling from one of the far corners: "Oh no you don't! Oh NO you don't! Oh no you DON'T!"

But this is my thinking: If you are willing to risk life and limb by running diagonally across a busy intersection to catch a taxi, you DESERVE that taxi.
