No traditional taxi I've ever been in had a driver to whom the term "professional" could even loosely apply. They've tried to physically steal my credit card, thrown a fit when I don't pay cash, are often unlicensed, and drive recklessly like they picked the wrong week to start amphetamines. At an airport one is compelled to take the first in line, whether they are legitimate or not. On the street, they routinely ignore hails. My Uber/Lyft experiences have varied, but none have even come close to the nasty shit from taxi drivers.

What exactly has he done wrong so far?

Look at his cabinet and supreme court picks. Our shitty public education system became much, much worse. Harmless people are afraid to so much as enter a bathroom. Rampant racism. The fucking pipeline. Removing protections for animals, people with jobs, your privacy and mine, and enabling big business to fuck us even harder than before. Destroying even the limited progress we were making against climate escalation. Encouraging sex crimes and the nightmare that is coal. I'm curious in which universe 50% = 40%, because in mine it sure doesn't. Are you a sociopath, or just a troll?

That was an atypical experience; given the countries mentioned, it seems likely it was not a US airline. Those generally offer vouchers / coupons for $100-400 that are nearly impossible to realize any value from. I'd rather not spend the night sitting hungry in an airport.

Again, for work one tends to need a place that's open before 10am or noon, and of course spaces where one can speak are limited. Last library I worked out of had a "study room" that they reluctantly let me into, they wanted advance notice and had like a 2 hour time limit.
