Day 17: On My Worst Enemy

I wouldn't wish the job of taxi dispatcher on my worst enemy. But this guy writes so beautifully about it, it almost makes you want to run out and apply, just for an outlet to vent your disbelief at morons and idiots. Honestly, you can't make this stuff up.

Read on, MacDuff, read on.

Also, is it set up where you can enter it from all sides, or did the doofus actually have to enter by the front gate the cab company told him to wait by??

There are several entry points to the Cemetary itself and there are two or three entry points for the Tomb. It's quite a way from the main visitors center, though, which is where the taxi stands are. Most people, upon entering the area of the Tomb, know it's special and tend to be reverent. Of course, I haven't been in several years, so who knows? Given the proliferation of cell phones, it wouldn't surprise me at all to see people gabbing away at the Tomb of the Unknown Solider. Even churches aren't exempt from those damn little phones. Sad, really.
