Why People aged 60-70 still drive Taxi?


I wonder why this kind of situation happen in our community nowadays. Why can't they have a better rest at home when they're at this kind of age?

Almost everyday, I will take a cab to have lunch with Superhero S at Pulau (see our related post) And I would always look at their Taxi Permit while talking to them.. Because when we talk to someone we also need to know a simple background about them ( I just can't simply talk :) )

I've always wanted to ask them why they still have to drive taxi around KL ( the busiest place ever ) rather than rest at their house and play with their grandchildren. But I couldn't. Sometimes I just answer for myself ... Oh, they are bored and need to do something to kill time..

But just now, I took a cab whose driver is 70 years old !!! What the hell is the world becoming? Why didn't their children take care of them? After witnessing this, I always pray and hope that my future life will not be like them and if I can, I want to save them all from living in that kind of situation..

I actually have the ANSWER for this one! From the way our youngsters drive their cars, i think the visually impaired oldies have the edge. At least the oldies in cabbies are not deaf, dumb and blind like our youngsters.
