To much lag

After walking to some distant shops where I live (45 mins) I decided to call a taxi instead of carrying the bags back. The app told me the driver would be there to pick me up in 5 mins. So around 20 mins later the car on the app finally begins to drive towards me but my phone charge is beginning to run low as I keep on checking. I then received a call off the driver but my phone froze and turned off before I could press answer so I went looking for the taxi at the Tesco entrance. About 30 seconds later the car pulled up and I signalled him down only to see him frowning at me like he wasn’t expecting me, I asked if this was for me and his reply was that I didn’t pick up the phone so he answered another job. I told him my phone died and he replied I’ll have to call another, WITHOUT A PHONE. So I ended up having to walk home which I could’ve done 20 mins before. Stupid punishment for such a simple accident, couldn’t be bothered to wait 2 mins to see if I was there even though he pulled up anyway!?



I've used the app a few times for whenever I don't have cash on me and taxis are always at least half an hour late, longest route taken and then app takes £1 off you for using card.



Too many muslims drivers that always take the alternative route just to make some extra cash.
