It is the nice thing to do
Posted by Erin on November 9, 2016, 4:53 pm, in reply to "been silent long enough"
I am commenting on Dean's need to speak up about rides to and from the airport, nothing withstand the fact that ride sharing is probably a very decent thing to offer and accept; it seems to me that when you see the number of taxis arriving or going to ZLO with a single occupant, how inefficent is that, I have often offered rides to the airport as I am picking people up in a 9 passenger Suburban with more room than enough, I have never accepted payment because I am going regardless of the number of passengers; if affords me some company for the trip and occasionally I meet some interesting people who have really enjoyed their time in LM. Unfortunately, picking strangers up is much more difficult as the cabbies don't appreciate the competition and I don't need the hassle. I have never meet anyone who did not appreciate the ride and I always think about those who pay it forward. The message board is usually the only means of finding out who needs a ride and when, bottom line, I think it serves a purpose, particularly for single people. Larger groups can easily share in the cost but for a single, the costs might be more than they want to spend. Funny enough, when I am at the airport, I usually run into many of LM residents who are there doing the same thing I am, picking up family and friends. So. Dean. please don't discourage people from helping as perhaps you might be in need some day and it would be nice if there is someone there to offer you a lift.
