I'm by no means wealthy, but during these cold winter months, since it's too cold to take my scooter to work, and taking the bus is something I am not too fond of doing, I indulge by taking a car service to and fro. The car service rocks. Its not too pricey, they are almost dependable and they almost always know where I need to go when I call them in the morning. When I started using the service, I would get in the car, and say, very clearly and loudly (over the blaring spanish morning radio show 'El Vacilon') "Van Brunt Street... In Red Hook". About 90% of the time, they would either look in their rear view mirror, or just turn around with a quizzical look on their face. At first, I would repeat myself until they got it, I'd know this beacuse they would always say "Aaah, Bam Broon!" But now, I just say "Bam Broon" when I step into the car. It shaves off a few seconds of travel time.
