Mayor Eisenberger Steps in Dog Poo, Again
I have never agreed with "human rights" laws mandating that cab drivers accept passengers with service animals. The last thing you want is a cab driver who is driven to panic and distraction for reasons similar to those cited by Susan Creer.
When I once voiced my opinion on a cab driver forum I was solidly denounced with some people declaring that people who are afraid of dogs should not be driving cabs in the first place. I wonder if the same logic will be applied to Susan Creer's complaint?
Over a forty-plus year span of experience in the cab business, I can say with confidence that there are always plenty of drivers willing to take animals. I never had a problem with it. I love dogs. I often used to joke with the dispatchers that I would rather take dogs than many of our human passengers.
The problem with so many SJW-based "human rights" these days is that they inevitably come into conflict with each other.
The Mayor defends his behavior by stating that he likes his dog. I like my smokes. I wish I could have used the same excuse when I got fined for smoking in my cab.
It will be interesting to see where this case goes. Maybe cab drivers will finally have their rights respected too.
