Invulnerable Taxi

Today, my cabbie drove like a maniac. He constantly changed lanes as he swerved to avoid motorcyclists, and he turned every corner super fast and sharp causing the tires to squeal. As we flew through the streets of Bangkok, the monk pendant in the front of the car constantly swung back and forth. You'd think the cabbie would be a little less reckless considering that he has a religious icon hanging in his taxi (and taking into account that he has a passenger in the back seat!). Then again, maybe the cabbie thinks he's impervious to danger with the monk image protecting him.
