Darko (32): People are the best part of this job

I listen to the stories of colleagues who drive famous people every day. Those stories are always interesting and I also wanted that kind of an experience.

I have been working as an Eko taxi driver for several months. Zagreb is my town, a town where I know every little alley, so my prequalification for the driver was not a problem, and my colleagues accepted me well, so they really made the beginning easier, which is difficult in every job.

I listen to the stories of colleagues who drive famous people every day. Those stories are always interesting and I also wanted that kind of an experience.

My wish came true

Last week I was waiting on a taxi stop in the west part of the city when one of the contestants from the famous Croatian singing show opened the door.

She was in a hurry, she told me she was very late for the rehersal and asked me to really try to drive her fast and safe to her desired location. The fact that I am familiar with every street in the city helped me to find the best and the fastest way. We avoided every traffic jam. The lady thanked me for my kindness and professionalism. We even took a photo together!

If she reads this, I just want to let her know that she made my day. I really enjoyed her stories from the backstage of the show and I am sorry our ride didn't last longer because I could talk to her for days.

People like the lady I recently drove to her rehearsal are the best part of this job and meeting them minimises the amount of stress.




Darko (32): Ljudi su najbolji dio ovog posla

Dogodovštine s poznatima uvijek su zanimljive i ja sam poželio da se i u mojem taksiju nađe netko koga gledam na televiziji i o kome čitam na portalima.

U Eko taxiju radim kao vozač tek nekoliko mjeseci. Zagreb je moj grad, grad u kojem poznajem svaku uličicu, pa mi prekvalifikacija za vozača nije bila nikakav problem, a i kolege su me odmah dobro prihvatili. Svi su mi zaista olakšali početak, koji je u svakom poslu težak.

Od samog početka svakodnevno slušam priče kolega koji u svojim taksijima voze poznate osobe. Dogodovštine s poznatima uvijek su zanimljive i ja sam poželio da se i u mojem taksiju nađe netko koga gledam na televiziji i o kome čitam na portalima.

Želja mi se ostvarila

Prošli tjedan stajao sam na stajalištu taksija u zapadnom dijelu grada, kad mi je u vozilo ušla jedna od natjecateljica iz poznatog pjevačkog showa koji je ovih dana popularan i koji i sam svaki vikend gledam.

Žurilo joj se, rekla je da jako kasni na generalnu probu i da dam sve od sebe kako bismo barem malo ublažili kašnjenje. To što jako dobro poznajem cijeli grad pomoglo mi je da se sjetim korisnih prečaca i da moja stranka brzo i sigurno stigne na odredište. Izbjegli smo gužve i na kraju mi je zahvalila na profesionalnosti i ljubaznosti. Čak smo se i fotografirali za uspomenu.

Ona to ne zna, ali ako čita, mogu joj reći da mi je zaista popravila dan svojim pričama i zanimljivim situacijama iz backstagea showa. Žao mi je što put nije trajao barem malo duže jer bih s takvim osobama mogao pričati danima.

Osobe poput dame koju sam nedavno vozio najbolji su dio ovog posla i susreti s njima itekako ublažavaju količinu stresa.
