Probably not even correct in Bahrain

Reader comment on item: Don't Bring That Booze into My Taxi

Submitted by raoul schmidiger (Switzerland), Oct 22, 2006 at 07:00

Dear Mr. Pipes,

this first happend to me in Manama, Bahrain in 2000. The taxi driver took me to a liquor store (1 of 3 that existed). When I came back he told me: "I cannot take alcohol in my taxi". - "I don't drink it!", I said. It did not help. I had to walk back to town center. Two hours walk at night. That was in Bahrain and I was the foreigner, so I adapted. For this to happen in the U.S is unacceptable.

regards raoul schmidger

ps: It was a six pax of heinecken
