The new bikes arrived.
This taxi is advertising the new Head stores which are spring up selling "legal hash"
What a weekend of good weather that was.
Summertime and the livin is easy.
The mood of the people has lifted and the house painting is nearly finished.
Warning! a new scam has come to my notice.
A regular customer told me about it and she has 2 uncles who drive taxis.
Punter gets into the taxi and says
"Driver I only have a €50 note, do you have the change?"
So when you reach your destination he pulls out his €50 note.
As the driver counts out the change and the customer grabs the change and runs off with his €50 and your change.
He has become good at it. So take the €50 before you pull out any change.
Had a guy in the taxi going to Heuston station.
He had drink taken and was loud, good natured enough though.
When we got there there was €9 something on the meter.
"Well all you'r going to get is €6"
No matter what I said did not matter, he was adament.
I called the security guard down but he wouldn't budge.
Cars were backed up now and people were blowing horns.
"What can you do?" says he.
"I will call the Garda" said I "And we will have to wait a month for them to come"
He was right there and a few drivers had jumped from their cars and were heading over to see what the delay was.
Only then did the station security man interviene and took the €5 note from his hand and gave him €2 back from my hand.
That guy should have a tatto on his forehead DO NOT GIVE ALCHOL TO THIS IDIOT.
There are a lot of mentally ill people going around, its a pity most of them are getting into my taxi.
A lot of people are saying No to Lisbon.
Things like Obama and Cowan, which has the bigger pay packet? Your right Cowan.
They are overpaid and totally at odds with common sense.
One shortcoming after another is being exposed.
This NAMA thing where they are going to take on toxic debts of the banks at our expense to help out the banks. While the same banks are evicting people from homes which the banks cannot then sell again.
makes the old blood boil.
Take care of your health.
Here is a lucky guy.
