Taxi driver Jimmy

taxi driver jimmyJimmy Speaks pretty good English.

He’s been a taxi driver for some time now and is still young.

Jimmy also likes to talk, about football, about Feijenoord, the club from Rotterdam.

That’s a major plus for someone coming from that city.

As my Chinese still needs a lot to be desired this was my chance to learn more about the taxi trade.

Jimmy …

  • works 16 hours on a day, and is the next day off
  • makes between 40 and 45 rides a day
  • pockets between 4000 and 5000 Rmb/month

He likes his job but it’s tiring he says. He probably won’t be happy with the new tiringno-eating and yawning regulations.

He has 1 star and wants to become a 3 star driver.

Give him a call if you need an English speaking driver.
