Bonce mentioned being in a taxi earlier today and it reminded me of the times I have, or more specifically where to sit in one?

To be honest I seldom use taxis/uber's but when I do, and am on my own, I sit up front besides the driver.

I do it for a number of reasons but mainly because I find it somehow impolite to the driver if I did't.

I just think that I'm no better than he is (most drivers I've used have been men) and having a chat with them helps pass the time to our destination.

If I'm in a group of people I will sit in the back with them, unless I know I'm the one who is either going to pay the driver or the one giving details of which way to go/best place to pull up, etc.

I understand why most women tend to sit in the back rather than next to a bloke they've never met before but always thought it a bit uncivil of blokes to sit alone in the back.

I guess most people do travel in the back and probably most drivers expect you to as well but sitting up front with the driver just seems right and normal to me.

Where do you sit?

Always in the back, I want the driver to know he is my chauffeur.

I'm with Nat on this. Sitting up front would make the driver my equal. I'm paying. I'm the boss, and I'm sitting in the back looking important. That's how it works.

You have to be in the front now as taxi drivers need directions to most places these days, they never seem to be local or know the area anymore.

It would be rude not to, they expect it after all.

Don't you?

Some drivers are chattier than others. Had to be in Walkden last week, and got a Lynch's cab home to Warrington. He seemed surprised when I got in the back, and I had to explain I wasn't being snooty, it's just what I've always done.

Always in the back, and if God is on my side, the driver just shuts the fuck up and drives.

Always behind the driver in the back, they don't like it it makes them on edge which is where i like them to be.
