I have to confess. I am afraid of taxis/cabs. I hardly catch a cab here in Sydney and refuse to get into one if I'm the sole occupant. If I'm with someone, it's ok but not if I'm alone. Weird isn't it? My friends and colleagues think so. They make me flag one down whenever I'm with them. For training, they say. I'm not too sure why I feel this way. Maybe it's because the thought of getting into a stranger's car and driving into the unknown scares me. I can't really describe it.
But due to work, meetings, leisure and business travels, I have become somewhat accepting of taxis - though still hesitant to flag a taxi alone and during travels would rather catch the public transport to the city centre from the airport if the option is available (e.g. hongkong, tokyo).
Maybe I just need more 'training'? Do you have something you are afraid of? Something that makes you feel like the odd one out?
Anyways have a great weekend! I'm off to Newtown festival this coming Sunday which should be a fun-filled day.
