NEW YORK (PIX11) -- If you think your cab driver isn’t intently listening to your backseat conversations, think again.
According to New York-based writer Danielle Page , they’re not only listening but inadvertently becoming gurus on love and relationships in the process.
“They are really great mult-taskers,” Page, a writer for YourTango.com, told PIX11 News. “You think they are deep in thought on the road but really anything you are saying to your girlfriend, that conversation you’re having with your mom – they’re listening and they’re taking notes.”
Some cabbies recently offered up some solid lessons in love to the writer on what they’ve learned from the apparent drama going in and out of their cabs.
Among the gold nuggets of advice they served up included a heartfelt story that proves the theory that even the poorest man could be rich if he finds the right woman.
"My wife and I have been married for 46 years. When we met we didn't have a lot of money,” a cabbie named Sal said. “We still don't have a lot of money, but we always find ways to have fun together. One of our first dates after we got married and found an apartment together was at Coney Island. We only had enough money for one hot dog, so we split it. But you know what? It was the best hot dog I ever ate."
