selling loads
 n.— «Cab rides in New Orleans aren’t even cheap, thanks to factors ranging from the high cost of cab leases to the unsavory practice of hotel employees “selling loads” to cabbies. “Just to get an airport load at a hotel, you’ve got to pay the bellman.”» —“Taxis stuck in wheels of graft” by Gordon Russell Times-Picayune (New Orleans, La.) July 28, 2002.
