Best of Boston

1998 Best Taxi, Driver

Bobby Uzdavinis

Had I been waiting too long? (Five minutes.) Would I like help with the door? (Yes, since I had armloads of groceries.) What kind of music would I like to hear? (Blessed silence.) All that, plus he loves his job, his cab company — “it’s like a big family— and he even idled at the curb until I was safely inside my apartment building. Either this is the happiest cabbie alive, or everyone should be on whatever medication he’s taking.
