From Hack To Hack: A Request
Please (begging you) do not hang air fresheners up in the taxicab. The stench of chemicals that pervade one's entire shift aren't worth its supposed rewards. These dangling little trees might cause cancer or infertility. We must figure out other ways to keep our taxis from smelling bad. If you insist on hanging one of these from your rear view mirror, at least take it with you at the end of your shift. For a driver that is sensitive to unnatural scents, finding one of these pervading the interior atmosphere upon commencing a shift is almost worse than hearing rattling in the suspension, or discovering hesitation in the transmission. And no, they do not have the fragrance of trees.
