I called for a taxi from my friends house because we had been out that night to a show and I didn't want to drive home. My Orange Cab driver picked me up, tried going the wrong/long way and then turned the meter off half way into my trip home and told me he was going to charge me a "flat rate" because it was a shorter trip. I asked what the heck that would be and it turns out it was going to cost me 3x the normal fare I pay for that ride. I said I wouldn't pay some "made-up" amount and he started yelling at me that he was giving me a great bargain! I had him pull over and let me out. I walked home from that point at 2:30 am. because it seemed safer than dealing with the aggressive driver from Orange Cab. I called the company the next day and they said they would talk with him. That's that.
