"On the way to a surprise party, my friend hailed a cab to transport several trays of food and party supplies. When he arrived at his destination, the cabbie warned him to be careful taking things out, because the cab was brand new. He started unloading things and was apparently too rough for the cabbie's taste, because the cabbie started screaming at him. He turned to respond and the cabbie socked him in the mouth. Before he could retaliate, the cabbie was back in the driver's seat and peeled off, trunk still open."
