It's last call on a busy weekend. The flood of tipsy loud drinkers pours out of the bar. No one can drive, and you're doing the responsible thing: catching a cab.
But where's a cab? Did someone call for one? Do they just come down this street at all? Hey, look, there's a cab. Oh, not a cab. Whoops. Well, let's get in anyway.
It's an, um, understandable mistake.
DISTURBANCE, WEST 117TH STREET: A group of intoxicated people tried to get into a woman’s car while she was waiting at a red light April 15.
They thought her blue car was a taxi.
When the taxi arrived, they got in. Soon enough, they were kicked out for being rambunctious.
