To celebrate his birthday, 31-year-old investment banker John Belitsky hired a taxi driver to take him and a pal from New York to Los Angeles, reports the New York Post. Belitsky paid Mohammed Alam $5,000 for the one-way trip. It's not clear how they're getting back, but right now the group is in Vegas. And it sounds like they're having fun! From the story:
"I'm very hardworking," Pakistani-born Alam said. "I don't care about the money. I came because it's a new thing. Driving is always hard, but I know how to drive. "And this beats Manhattan.".... Alam said his wife cried when he broke the news of his epic plans.
