ABSTRACT
The author exposes the intellectual weakness of a taxi cab driver in New York. The author shares that many writers have praised the wisdom and philosophical insight of the average taxi cab driver. This impression was refuted when a New York cab criticized the smallness of a London cab driven by a London cab driver in New York to promote tourism.
