Dublin Girl Proud Of Herself For Not Judging Black Taxi Driver

Dublin Girl Emer Reilly is reportedly proud of herself following a racist thought-free taxi journey through the city centre late last night.

Following a dinner in the Rustic Stone restaurant, Emer said goodbye to several friends and jumped in a taxi hoping to get home to Rathmines in a timely fashion.

It was only after putting the key in the door of her apartment that Emer realised she had completely forgotten to judge her taxi driver unfairly, who she believed to be from Nigeria or somewhere.

As soon as Emer made the realisation she took to a Whatsapp conversation she has with several friends to share the monumental news.

‘Guys, had a Nigerian taxi driver. Full on didn’t judge him. So proud’. The following minutes were peppered with messages of praise and awe-inspired commentary from Emer’s friend who admitted they did not have the capacity to stay relaxed in the company of a black taxi driver.

Some friends were less effusive, with Ciara stating ‘oh my god Emer you’re crazy, you should always wave down another taxi. I’m not saying it’s racist, but like everyone has had a bad experience with them like they don’t even bother with GPS Emer!’

“I was genuinely surprised at my lack of judgement. I didn’t check the doors to see if they were locked or anything. Now it might have had something to do with being blind drunk, but still it counts right? Thankfully, my skirt was below knee length so there wasn’t much on show for him to gawk at,” Emer shared with WWN.

Emer was deservedly basking in her nonjudgmental outlook on black taxi drivers before she made a disturbing realisation. Taking to Whatsapp again Emer shared with her friends a worrying development. ‘Sorry guys, Ciara you’re right. Just remembering now I sat up in the front seat, maybe I am crazy. Seriously, lucky to be alive’.

The Association of Black Taxi Drivers of Dublin (ABTDD) have responded to the unlikely and reasonable reaction of Emer to her journey and are believed to feel undeserving of being given the benefit of doubt.

“It is wonderful to hear we are not being adversely judged or stereotyped. Really, they are such kind words to hear from a customer, but we concede on the point that half the time we don’t have a fucking clue where we are going. We’re working very hard on rectifying that” said head of ABTDD Jeremy Soyinka.
