Numbers Game

A driver’s number or call sign can be very important to him; some drivers want their lucky number or a number that means something significant to them. This leads to drivers trading numbers and even in some cases swapping firms if they can’t get the number they want.  A while back one of our local drivers swapped from number sixty-one to number fourteen because he said "it was too many syllables in sixty-one for him to say on the radio."
 You will find that not many taxi firms have a driver thirteen; I guess you will think that we are a superstitious lot, but round here thirteen is reserved for a call for help. So if you hear your driver shouting thirteen and giving his location you know that you have really spooked him and that you will be surrounded by twenty bloodthirsty cabbies within minutes.

I've noticed that, thirteen is not their favorite number. If you are a driver, you need a good luck because driving is very risky job, some accident can happen beyond your control. Positive energy is very helpful and I believe on that. Why not, if you make feel good and the outcome is great.

Taxi drivers has a unique way to communicate each others, 13 is part of a number that some people took it as unlucky one. Your faith in your only things can make you happy if you believe it happens. I learned a lot from your post and it's worth to share. | http://www.taxihubdallas.com/irving/irving-airport-shuttle/
