Strange Taxis?

Ive heard a few stories of some dodgie taxi drivers in the san fran area showing you a card with religuous / weird writing on it when in the car.

Anyone know about this or experienced it?

Is this is a big problem in the city? what happens if you get in one of these taxis?

is it innocent religuous stuff or a cult type thing?

Im planning on going to San Fran later this year and thought id ask this question to clear the air if you will.

Interested to know what people think or any experiences?

We have 5 major religions in this area: Warriors, Giants, A's, Raiders and Niners. Different religions dominate depending on time of year. Atheists wearing the wrong colors are often proselytized.

JM,

We know who you are.

Give us your arrival date and we will make sure you get the right card.

You can have a card free trip by simply ignoring all of the above.

Yes, you know by now that the problem is not strange taxi drivers, but strange natives.

Yeah, and it's 8 to 2 in the bottom of the 8th. (I am not used to the Orange uniforms, but at least I know who the home team is. <grin>.) GO GIANTS.

On the other hand, finally both our guards have cold shooting nights. So win some lose some.

Too bad the yellow and blue Dubs went down. Oh well there is still hope. We are not only Giants but Warriors.

Oh I missed this part in the Op's first line

dodgie taxi drivers

I think the first word has a typo -- perhaps it rhymes with Badger

You guys are really funny since a similar "dodgie" conversation is going on over on the Puerto Vallarta forum. Coincidence? Sean hangs out there sometimes so maybe he saw it too.

Mattie sure needed that win.
