- For an average passenger, the difficulty of boarding a taxi is clearly distinct from the time the taxi is hailed

- The realities of the road teach passengers about the taxi system, which has its own rules and regulations that are not necessarily in accordance to what is right and just

The driver, according to her had demanded to know their destination and negotiated a steep price amounting to Php 700, which is way beyond and above the typical taximeter rate to Bagong Silang in Caloocan.

Having been offered such a steep rate, her father had declined the driver and they waited for another taxi to come.

This situation, though common in the metro, made Marnelli so angry that she took the photo of the driver and ranted about the incident on Facebook.
