In 2003 the Public Chauffeur Training Institute was located at Harold Washington College on Lake Street downtown. This was the place you had to go if you wanted to become a taxi or limo driver in the city of Chicago. I was returning to the job after six years of delivery driving, waiting tables, bartending and a few other service-industry gigs—none of which seemed to suit me financially, temperamentally, or in any other way. While I wasn’t a newly arrived immigrant to this city and country like the majority of my classmates, I still hadn’t quite found my place …

I laughed along, but didn't really know what was so funny. I assume he was referring to how I may be missing the crazy busy times like Saturday nights, but I feel like 8-hour days for 5 days a week will be adequate in making decent money.
Am I wrong? Is there something I don't know? Do drivers not …
