Taxi Preen

One way Bangkok taxi drivers like to kill time in traffic is by grooming themselves. When the taxi is stuck at a red light, it's the perfect time for the cabbie to trim his fingernails and pluck his chin with two coins held together to act as a tweezers. Never mind that there are passengers watching in the rearview mirror and hearing the clicking sounds. Heck, if I had a built-in mirror in the backseat, I'd be doing the same thing.
