Taxi Driver Booted U.S. Soldier From His Cab After Learning He Was In The Military…
Via The Blaze:
A Nashville, Tenn., man claims he was kicked out of a cab over the weekend after the driver found out that he is a U.S. soldier.
Allen Pendley has been a member of the U.S. Army National Guard for the past six years; he’s also a full-time student. When he took a bus trip from Clarksville to Nashville after a weekend of military training, he began looking for a cab ride home on Sunday.
But before Pendley, who was dressed in uniform, had the chance to flag a taxi, he claims a Yellow Cab driver pulled up and asked if he needed a ride.
The soldier claims he got in the car and that the driver quickly began asking questions — and that’s when the situation allegedly took a turn.
“He asked me — he said, ‘Are you in the military?’ I said, ‘Yes sir I am.’ And then it got real quiet,” Pendley told WTVF-TV. ”Then when he pulled over he said get out of the cab.”
After the driver dropped him off, the stunned soldier said he had to find another cab to take him home. Pendley, who served in Iraq in 2009 and 2010, said that he was stunned to be treated so poorly.
