What borough do you mainly drive your taxi in? I've ridden in NYC taxis, and I've often wondered how anyone drives there at all! It seems like if it's not the crazy drivers it's the crazy pedestrians walking right out in front of you from nowhere, so it's great that you enjoy your job. I've seen some overly-aggressive taxi drivers too, but I'm SURE you're not one of those :)
