Perhaps you have noticed that Shanghai taxi drivers are wearing orange T-shirts these days. They are for the Special Olympics
(which, we assume, local cabbies are more interested in than the Women’s World Cup?) and on the back we’re pretty sure it says “I Know I Can,” which is the event’s slogan. We asked one of our drivers today if he liked being able to wear a T-shirt instead of the usual cabbie outfit (some kind of white collared shirt). He said: “No, it’s not really more comfortable. They only give us one shirt, and we have to wear it for nine days. If we forget to wash it …”
The shirts come off October 12. Maybe on the 11th you can ask a cabbie to trade T-shirts with you like they do after World Cup matches (men’s ones). We suggest washing before wearing.More unspectacular camera phone pics after the jump.
