I need time to assess the situation and to advise what would you do.
So I drove last week Do in a strange place taxi (we call it business A) from the train to a conference venue. On the way I talked quite nice with the driver. Upon arrival I realized I would again need a taxi for departure and the company called about 45 minutes after I arrived at approximately 21 o'clock. It was the driver of just on the line, which also reminded me. I booked her a taxi for the next day 13:00 back to the station.
The next day, not a taxi. After a few minutes I called nervously and the woman at the other end (it was another) claimed I had not called, here would not book before! I discussed with her (but I HAD phoned) and she said she would push me in between or equal.
That ended with a taxi company B came. However, far too late. This meant that I missed my train, for almost my connection to the remote bus in the other city. So I drove the taxi driver B in said city, he had to hurry. I got the bus then grade yet, but now I had thanks Taxi A course useless, high taxi fares because train missed.
On the way telephoned taxi driver B several times with his own boss and with A to ask whether A would now take over these costs. It ended up that A was unrepentant, there the boss was not there and I should pay these costs "first" thus and then talk with the boss. I felt there already ripped, but clearly, if I do not pay, B'd sit on the costs, and whose fault was it not. So paid, got a receipt.
Today (Mo, 13.4.) After 3 attempts finally had Chef of Taxi A on the line. Preliminary upshot: driver and woman in the head office on Friday were temporary, he saw them only at Sa again, he would talk to them, I should call next Monday again.
On one hand I can understand that.
On the other hand I feel put off and put off me again. This feels totally ridiculous and I do not want this story drags on forever! It is clear: THE manure have built, have verballert my book and I want to get reimbursed these travel costs, on principle and because I'm short of money. That was a really hot story if I would get now this bus for a (up to door) 8-hour drive yet.
What I have in hand, is the only receipt for the taxi fare and taxi B as witnesses. Unfortunately, I can let my exhibit from my room phone in the conference site no connecting proof that I really phoned Taxi A.
Taxi A has a reputation for unreliability and is apparently overwhelmed. Bin thus hardly the first one happens!
The play but now on time, right? What can I do? How shall go forth? Thank you!
