12:45pm: Call cab since everyone else drove in for 12pm event. 10mins to an hour wait time. OK could potentially be cutting it close but no worries.
1:15pm: Call back cab company. No one in the area wait another 10-15.
1:30pm: Call again. No one making any attempt to get here still.
1:45pm: Call again. Lady says she's going to try to get me a cab gets on phone. 10 mins pass she has no luck. Tells me to keep waiting.
2:05pm: Bond comes through the door busto before the first break as usual. I run out into the street chasing his cab waving my arms. Sprint for a block but I'm not closing distance.
210pm: Call back cab company offer $100 tip for a ride.
2:30pm: Have basically given up since I can't think of anyone that can come get me and I will probably be blinded off.
2:35pm: Kicking empty router box around the house on life tilt.
2:40pm: Call from Deeb wondering where the fuck I am. Explain situation he says he can find me a ride.
2:45pm: PokerNews posts update saying I have 4K in chips.
3:05pm: Geoff (mini-Thayer) and Shaun still not here. I am certain I will have been blinded off by the time I get there so I tell them thanks for trying. Sorry guys for making u come this way but I appreciate it.
Anyways a similar thing happened to me in a $1K rebuy event last year but I was able to get a ride in and only miss a couple orbits and we were in the money by the time I got there. Las Vegas cabbies who won't leave the strip because it costs them money can all go fuck themselves. Ace cab company when I do finally win a bracelet I am going to celebrate by going to your head offices and burning you to the ground. If you see an Ace cab kick the door in for me.
