Hello there! First I want to say Thank You for taking the minutes away from your day to check out my profile. It has been a loooonngggg time since I have been on the internet dating scene but lo and behold I am back once again.
A lil bit about me. My name is TK and I was born and raised in the South Bronx, New York City in the Soundview section. Not even a mile from the park where Kool Herc threw his first party and Hip Hop Music was born! That being said, hip hop has always played somewhat of a big part in my life.....but more on that later. As soon as I graduated high school, I boogied my skinny bronx butt down to Atlanta GA to attend Morris Brown College.....truly some of the BEST years of my life. And to this day, the A is the place I call home. I moved to VA Beach for 5 years when my son (my heart and my soul) was first born, but made my way back here (Atlanta has a way of doing that to you).
These days I am a Taxi Cab Driver who works the night shift thru the streets of Atlanta, mainly covering the areas of Buckhead, the Virginia Highlands, Midtown and Downtown. Let Me Tell You Something (cue in the fire marshall bill accent), HBO Taxi Cab Confessions doesn't have sh#t on one of my shifts.....especially on a Friday/Saturday night or when a convention is in town. I can't speak for all cab drivers, but for ME taxi cab driver breaks down into "categories". Here is a "short list".
Arguement Mediator - Very Often. Usually couples, both dating and married, or friends who had one too many.
TrYe Olde Rolling Concierge - Extremely Often (thats gonna be $1 pef question mofo)
Social Worker - Funny thing is I wanted to be a Social Worker after college....and damn sure feel just like one on the regular. EVERYBODY HAS PROBLEMS.....and EVERYBODY WANTS ANSWERS.....Hello, my name is Dr. Walt, so what is your problem today.......
The Pet Therapist - Not right now. PLEASE not right now! I will say this....nothing is more subliminally disrespectful then when you have been overly nice to this dog and he decides to leave you with a friendly parting "milk fart". It ain't a good look when you gotta ride around in a car that smells like milk duds.
Fashion Consultant - How do you expect me to check you all out and my main focus is the road? Of course I help them smh
Mr. Mom - Funny to EVERYONE except me. On numerous occassions....Mommy runs in the store/pharmacy for something LEAVING her 3 or 4 bad ass little kids in the cab with me, shes taking her sweet time.....my blood pressure shooting up quicker than mercury in the thermometer of a fever riden person. Oh man oh man.
The Voyeur - Use your imagination and multiply that by 4. Should be more often!
Have you ever have someone tell you "Ooh you look just like so and so (a famous person/celebrity)? Here we go again. I look like me and me alone for the most part however for years I have been told I bear a striking resemblence to the hip hop legend Rakim of the hip hop duo Eric B.,and Rakim. Im cool with that and I CAN see that but of course you have those who just wanna push that ball too damn far.
Example 1: GrandMaster Flash.....I DO NOT LOOK LIKE FLASH! AT ALL! No dis to the man Flash but for real leave that sh#t ALONE! LOL
Example 2: JB Smoove - the comedian from Curb Your Enthusiasm.....this one came out of NOWHERE. One night I picked up 3 random groups of people and they ALL were saying the same thing. You look JUST LIKE HIM, YOU LOOK JUST LIKE HIM! Me, smiling on the outside saying no I dont, while on the inside I am cursing their ass out like there is no tomorrow. This sh*tlasted a solid 2 WEEKS! Do you know how long two weeks are when you have complete strangers all saying the same thing and you REALLY dont want to hear it AT ALL. Dont YOU even say it.
Example 3: This is the WEIRDEST and should be the poster boy for all things filed under WTF. I pick thks old lady up and soon as she sees me she says "ooh you look just like that actor". Inside my head I say to myself here we go with this sh*tagain.,i reply "who"? She says I forget his name but he plays in all the black movies. Im driving and dropping names and she keeps saying "no thats not him"? After awhile I run out of black actors and I myself want to hear this comparison by now. Upon reaching her destination he says "he played in Cornbread Earl and Me." I said "do you mean Laurence Fishburne? She got EXCITED "YES thats him Fishburne"......instantly I fall into a 5 milli second vertigo. Remember in Scooby Doo that swirl effect like its on to the next chapter? That was my mind momentarily processing this foolishness.....COME ON MAN LARRY FISHBURNE? We are not even the same complexion. My facial skin is smooth like a newborn babys butt, not like rugged terrain from shaving to early. I pondered that madness for a minute trying to make sense of the unsensible. My conclusion was this lady was just a lil off. Probably A LOT OFF.....but she was a nice old lady!
To be continued.....almost done
