  1. 本来不该说这话,可人有多可怜必有可恨之处。一个华人科学家看他可怜,把他介绍到自己成立的公司,可这人硬生生地把人家的公司要搅黄啦。。。。。也不知道这个人怎么想。。。。

  2. I took a few hours on Google and researching a bit about “Taxi or Cab service” worldwide and the rules that differ from one country to another, the fares, city regulations, and even the danger we all can face at times. But I haven’t found a great resource for “Cab drivers” to share their experiences, tips etc.. if you know of any, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you
