    Some of us think that principles are important. If it had not been Jimbo but a poor local, would you still think it such a trivial amount?

    Exactly

    Gilles, Would you feel the same if the taxi driver did the same to your wife?
    I doubt it.

    Please come to my side of town. Did you know that some areas charge a toll for walking.

    Yeah - and a poor local would not have paid up like Jimbo did either...

    If you can't afford $100 then you shouldn't be taking taxis... In any case, he made the expedient choice to pay instead of other options.

    The cabbie worked within the rules and the customer agreed to pay...

    No, the driver didn't work within the rules. Else show me where the driver is allowed to
    a) over-charge
    b) refuse taking a passenger to any destination (place for changing money)
    c) lock a passenger in his taxi in case of a dispute over the fare or change
