Only in Fairbanks

Got a call to pick up at a low budget apartment complex. As I pulled up I noted a cop putting a man in handcuffs into the back of his patrol car. I had a feeling....

Me: That wouldn't happen to be the guy who called for a cab from 206, would it?

Officer: Why yes it is. You want him?
Officer, noting my skepticism: He's got money.

Me: You got somewhere to go, Lincoln?

Lincoln: I would go get something to eat.

Me: Sure. I'll take him off your hands.

The cop un-cuffed him, he got in the cab and we left.

Good job. Cabbies are the ambassadors of the streets. Sometimes tough negotiations are called for. Lincoln is a trip.
