Given the choice between taking a taxi or taking a limo is like choosing between open-heart surgery and a Hawaii vacation…it’s a no brainer as to which one you are going to pick. There is something luxurious and indulgent about riding in a limo as opposed to a cab with cracked seats, stiff doors, strange smells and a rude driver. You’d be crazy to choose a taxi over a limo and here’s why:
You’ll Make People Jealous
Who among us hasn’t been stopped at a red light in our beat up little car and watched a big, beautiful limo pull up right in the next lane? You start to create a story behind who’s in the limo. It’s a world renowned celebrity on their way to the hottest nightclub or restaurant in town or a newlywed couple being whisked off to their honeymoon on a tropical island somewhere where the only thing to do is sip a fruity cocktail and get grapes hand fed to them by bare chested cabana boys…
…ok, maybe not, but you will still be the envy of everyone else on the road if you are riding in a limo while they are sitting in their ’78 Camaro worrying about whether or not they’ll make it to the comic book shop for the newest Superman comic before they break down.
You’ll Travel in Luxury
Let’s face it, if you’re sitting in your car stuck in traffic you can’t exactly sip a glass of champagne or down a cold beer without having those pesky cops pull you over and give you a ticket for having an open container of alcohol in your car. But if you’re kicking back in a limo, you can sip champagne while watching a DVD with your feet propped up. And really, who can beat that? Certainly not some lame taxi driver that won’t be nearly as kind to you as a limo driver would.
You’ll be the Talk of the Town
Have you ever wanted to be the topic of gossip around your town? Dying to experience that 15 minutes of fame, even the fame is confined to the area you live in? Then show up at, say, your high school reunion by pulling up in a limo. Turn your mortal enemy from high school green with envy, show an ex-lover that they may have broken things off with you, but they could never break you down. In other words, get sweet, sweet revenge on everyone who ever made fun of you for wearing loafers to school with argyle socks hiked up to your knees.
Because You Deserve It
Most of us are good people and hard workers who are entitled to some of the finer things in life. A limo is something you deserve, whereas a taxi is not.
For these four basic reasons, if you ever have the opportunity to choose between a taxi or a limo, always choose the limo.
