Jean Joselin has been a cab driver in Cambridge, MA for over 30 years. One day a woman got into his car clearly distressed. When Jean asked the woman what was wrong, the woman told him everything - she’d been dumped by her boyfriend and didn’t know where to go. What happened next led to friendship, loyal clientele, and a beautiful story.
You know, one girl – she get in my cab and she can’t even tell me where she’s going. And she finally tell me her boyfriend left her. So I say, okay, stop crying! You so valuable. You should make man come to you, you shouldn’t cry for man. She said okay this is the same thing my father would tell me. So from now I’m going to get all my friends to call you. She passed my telephone around and before I know it I get a bunch, a bunch of students who keep calling me and sometimes they say, “I was really dying to meet you, because so and so tell me you are a good advisor, you are like a good family man.”
