My good old taxi
Called the wall of fame in Temple Bar.
Fire in the port tunnel.
Action plan swings into force traffic almost stopped for hours and hours.
Had a run into town with a very nice French girl who is living in Barcelona.
Reminded her of home someone always on strike and stopping the traffic.
Well big news today.
I sold my taxi !.
Licence meter and car.
So from Friday I will be a civilian.
But not for long.
I have this beautiful Prius and the computer is all in Japanese I am going to meet a guy who spent 7 years in Japan and we are going to look through the manuals and convert her.
The Prius has voice activated Sat Nav. I turned it on and a Japanese voice said
"Where to boss?"
"Ronanstown in Tallagh please"
"No no boss you no wan go dere, I take you to Ranelagh instead"
Lots of things to get sorted.
How do you complain?
When I was in Blackpool I asked some taxi drivers if there was a good Indian restaurant close by.
"Yes indeed mate the Akash on Topping St".
When I took the menu and saw some of the pages were stuck together with food.
I should have left there and then.
I said it to the waiter but he said that "We are very busy".
3 tables occupied.
Gordon Ramsey would have had a great rant.
While I was waiting some other people asked for a damp cloth so they could clean the sticky stuff from their hands.
The outside of their menu was dirty too.
I was not the only moron there that day.
A lot of time passed and the waiters changed.
The new guy when he was walking past twice put his hand on my shoulder and said
"It'l be ready in a minute, mate"
Strike 2 I should have said
"If you put your hand on my back again I will deck you, mate."
Next When it came eventually it was stone cold,the rice was as cold as from a fridge and the meat dish was not even lukewarm.
I called him over and asked if this was a joke?
The plate was stone cold and there he was going round with cloths on his hands.
Any normal person would have left.....Not muggins.
I let him heat it up to lukewarm and ate it without a murmer..
Guess what .
I did get food poisoning but not too bad.
It was only at one end.
I don't have to guess why they call it the runs.
All the clues were there to warn me.
Just goes to show I can never learn
Remember the rubiks cube? here is a super one being solved.
So many people tell me they have never seen Curb Your Enthusiasm that I had to provide a link.
