I did mention to him how us drivers have a difficult time finding a place to relieve ourselves in the city. I told him how most of us carry a large empty Gatorade bottle for a number one but a number two is a problem. I told him that I did once resort to, and yes this is humiliating, but I had to crap so bad I found a secluded spot on Riverside Drive ( a pricey piece of real estate to relieve myself ) leaned against my cab praying no one would walk by or see me (which is a very hard thing to do in Manhattan), reminding myself that I only did this while hunting once before. I finished my business and cleaned up. I carry toilet paper, purell hand sanitizer and paper towels in my bag which is really my survival kit.
I felt like I shit all over the stuffy upper crust who live in this area who have stiffed me without a tip many times so there was some retribution in this act, however when I was done, I drove off hoping this would never happen to me again. Well Lo and behold my new journalist friend sent me this website which is a toilet locater for New York City and told me that he hopes it will help. My fellow blogger and driver NYCTAXIPHOTO responded in the comment section because I added the link to my sidebar of Taxi links, so I thought I'd post about this ingenious search engine. Happy toilet hunting in NYC everyone. Here is the link:
