Hailing a cab in New York City is an experience very similar to shacking. You blast through the ether of runaway cabs, despondent drivers, and fellow New Yorkers trying to hail the same cab.
When you eventually succeed in stopping a cab, his desire to race through the green light before it turns red can often leave you grasping desperately for anything within reach. If you have ever felt stuck in a rut, think of New York City, and blast through the ether.
