Taxicab Confessions

My fares tonight, from my home on Capitol Hill to the bars in Logan Circle:

From home to the bar (with the zone system):  $9.80

From the bar to home (with a meter):  $9.25

Not much of a difference, especially since I paid both drivers $11.   However, it’s much more satisfying to see your fare tick away than to trust that you know the zone boundaries as well as the cabbies.  Viva la meter!
