I am sure someone wrote down the word "Job" under the tape

A new store is born!

Every taxi driver who ply his trade at Dublin airport has to pay around e440 for the pass. these were the toilets at 9 am Thursday morning.
I am glad I did not need a crap, I wouldn't let my dog use this place !

Well another week nearly over.

This weekend the huge vintage car show will be held in The grounds of Terenure college on Sunday.
Loads of vintage cars all polished up to beat the band.

So be there on Sunday or be square.

The Tango Del Sol Tango festival will also be on with the superstar Geraldine Rojas taking part

I had a few people who had lucky breaks in the taxi last week.
A guy from Liverpool who had an operation on his colon and the stitching burst letting toxic waste into his bloodstream. He went into hospital weighing 14 1/2 stone and came out at 11 stone and a huge scar.
He is so happy to be alive.
He was a chemist and we spoke about the Polish guy who invented the process for making Nitrogen fertilizer. When he did that it was declared that people would never starve again, there would be no more famine..Then the fucker went on to develop the gas which was used to kill the Jews,he was himself a Jew.On looking it up I find he died in 1873 When his wife (also a chemist) found out what he was now working she killed herself in despair.

So you have this huge good and awful from the one person.

"Science is the future" he said, the worlds population is rising so fast that like it or not we must now rely on Monsanto and other seed companies who are producing GM foods. The clever masterstroke with Monsanto is that the seeds are "dead head" meaning that the seed you harvest cannot be re planted as they won't grow, so you have to go back to the supplier every year for more seed.

The second was a girl who had lost her keys in a taxi. So she was locked out of her house.
The landlord was called up at 3 am. He was in Wexford St. but came over to let her in.So one thing lead to another and she went back with him to have something to eat. On the way back he asked her if she would go to the GAA match on Sunday?
He threw the match tickets on to the dash of the car as he was eating chips at the time (every taxi driver hates the smell of chips and vinegar)
So they each went home, on getting out of the taxi he looked for the tickets, realising he had left them in the taxi he went back to Camden St and spent 3 hours looking for the taxi. Well, the driver told him he had cleared out the car and had put the rubbish into a bin in Kilmanham, so off to find the bin...Guess what! The tickets were there.
She went to the match and she hopes that some honest and caring driver hands in the keys.
One thing I would say is that under the old system there was only one lost and found, now even I do not know where to go.
I hope she gets her keys back.

The third was a woman who got into the taxi in Sandymount, she had a walking aid and a caliper on one leg, not old,50 or so. So she got in and said she was going to Westwood health and fitness club in Clontarf. "Where are you going? Its the other way" !
So I pulled over and spoke to her. It turned out that it was the branch on St.Johns Rd. she wanted.(That's the street the Garda Quest buero could not find !)
She explained to me what had happened. No I didn't have a stroke, although it has effected me like that. She was ill and went to Beaumount hospital. After a week or so they told my husband that there was nothing wrong with me and sent me home. My own doctor was not one bit happy and sent me to the Beacon clinic (private hospital)where thay scanned me and took bloods. They noticed something abnormal in her brain and took a sample. 2 days later the result came back.Inter vascular lymphona.
Not good news, she had a very rare form of cancer which effects the brain itself. 3 weeks to live if they did nothing 6 months perhaps if they were lucky.
Her condition is so rare that there is only one other living person in the world who has it. But she thought that that person had died !
Then an absolute miracle happened !
A reserch group had been doing stem cell research, if a compatible doner could be found they would inject the stem cells into her brain after chemo. Wow she hit the jackpot ! The graft has taken and she is fighting fit once more. She said she would love to go to the tango night, but she doesn't know if her toy boy would be off on Friday.

Dublin women are worth their weight in pure gold, they laugh in the face of death.

Spanish father Russian mother, she is now 41. has been unemployed for 4 years in Spain. She speaks 7 languages !
What a waste of ability. I still cannot believe it.
What chance would anyone of normal ability have if she can't find work?
Google, Facebook, Microsoft,and Ebay all have their bases here to avail of the low tax rate.

Go for it girl.


I DO need feedback, what kind of things do you want to read about?
I don't get paid for writing this crap and If there is no rapport from you lot there is no reason to carry on writing it.

So speak up.

Little joke, you know how people hate to waste things?

A Jew found a pair of crutches in the attic and went down and broke his wife's legs.

He hated to see them not being used.

OK this is better.

What is the similarity between a real pony's tail and a 50 year old guy wearing a pony tail ?

Well if you really look under both you will see a real asshole !

I saw this guy in Molesworth St on Thursday...He is a LEGEND !


  1. If I posted a pic of the bathrooms around New York City the internet would ban me. Lol ..great post. Cheers.

  2. Thanks for that! It sure is something, no toilet seat. There is a puddle of urine around the other side. The asholes in charge pay themselves HUGE bonisus every year.
    I am so happy that I am so stupid that I won't pay the charge and just work the streets instead of waiting for 2 or more hours for a job of €10?.
    Why don't Americans tip?

  3. In answer to the tip question, I think tipping confounds most Americans. I think we never know when or who we're supposed to tip. Like we just want to know what something costs. I'll remember though if I ever take a taxi.

    I worry about those Monsanto seeds. I understand that we will need to rely more on science as we feed the ever growing population. Just seems like disaster waiting to happen.

  4. Feedback? I'd say keep at it. As a fellow Dublin taxi driver, I enjoy reading your stories.

    It's nice to hear real life stories rather than the moaning and political in-fighting that goes on on some other sites :P

  5. I always enjoy looking at the pictures you post - maybe one of these days I can visit Dublin though that's doubtful - and I like it that you are into so many things - that you post jokes, music, real life situations, and so on. Thanks from Netagene in Birmingham, Alabama, USA

  6. Just keep writing what you do - random stories of your passengers and sights around Dublin!
    I love reading your posts.

    Those toilets are a disgrace!! I saw cleaner holes in the floor in Egypt!

  7. I took a cab home the other night in Toronto meter was $21 and I gave him $25, felt like I had undertipped him.

  8. John, I gotta say sometimes it is hard to post a comment due to a busy family life, I am always popping in to your looking for news, I was in Dublin on Tuesday night with my 17 yr old and his 2 friends and was hoping to catch ya but I never got a chance to ring ya!

    "A Jew Found A Pair Of Crutches". Really? A bit racist and anti semite is it not? Get a grip. That's not nice. Just pack it in and go back to your full time job, whatever that is.

  10. Thanks for the comments except for you, with no sense of humour.We will not mention The Gaza blockade or the other crap that is going on in Palistine. All this extremest carry on only recruits more kids into putting on dynamite waistcoats, we have spent 30 years going through that.
    I say Shalom to you.
    I hope you jump up and shout the next time you hear a Paddy joke being told.

  11. This was a good post. I almost always stay interested in what you say, mostly because of your tone of "I am who I am and you read if ya want." I follow other blogs of people who mainly want to change the world and I don't feel that exaggeration from your blog. (Please take that last statement as a good thing) What I do find is genuine insight of the world and people around you. And usually some laughs from weird or coincidental situations. All in all I know I won't stop reading, so please keep writing.
