DeSoto Cab Company
I was going from the Embarcadero down to the Marina and one of the doormen at a hotel in the area was nice enough to hail a cab for me even though I wasn't a guest. Well unfortunately, I got this guy as a driver. First thing, the cab could use a good cleaning. I could have overlooked this until... As soon as I got in the guy starts hitting on me. Okay, I can deal with that well enough then he starts getting sexual, leering at me in the rear view mirror, you get the picture. He drove like a maniac and I'll be honest, I was ready to jump out of the car at a stop light or something. I was seriously creeped out. He took a longer route, driving up the fare on top of just giving him more time to make me uncomfortable. We finally got to the Marina and we were close enough to my destination that I said this was fine. I paid him and started to get out and he asked for my phone number. After I said no, he actually drove slowly behind me and followed me until I ducked in to a store. There is no way I'm getting in one of these cabs again after that experience.
