A question. How long does it take to get out of a cab at the end of a trip? Well, some people are so lazy/brain dead they can take up to 10 minutes.
I’m sitting in the back of my cab, a cup of tea in my hand, eating a sandwich and reading a book. Two American cretins ask me if I’m available, sure I always look for punters from the back of my cab.
Occasionally small things can put a smile on my face, Gants Hill toilets have a certificate displayed proudly announcing the “Toilet Attendant of the Year”.
I’m really getting fed up with all this drinking in the street. Someone dropped a bottle in the middle of Charing Cross Road, a cab drove over it and shrapnel cannoned across the road into everyone standing on the pavement. Luckily no one was hurt.
Once I got a T4 Heathrow. Dropping off bewildered arrivals asks if I’m available, I explain that I cannot pick up without joining the rank. Minicab gets the job. I’m penalised by TfL if I accept, he’s not. That’s transport regulation for you.
