高中生摘抄励志英语美文：Taxi Drivers Are People， TooI believe honesty is one of the greatest gifts there is. I know they call it a lot of fancy names these days， like integrity and forthrightness.

I’ for thirty-five years， and I know there is a lot about it that is not so good. Taxicab drivers have to be rough and tumble fellows to be able to take it in New York. You’ve got to be tough to fight the New York traffic eight hours a day， taxi drivers are tough， like other people. Most of them will shake down as honest fellows.

One time in Brooklyn， I found an emerald ring in my cab. I remembered helping a lady with a lot of bundles that day， so I went back to where I had dropped her off.
