Shop early for Christmas

                                 Yes folks shop early for Christmas
                              Glass art on display at the Solomon gallery
                                              Be wise advertise.
                                  Girl carries naked man through the streets.
                                   Just when I have paid my taxes I find this.

I just thought I would share this with you.
2 Americans on the way to the airport at 4.45 Friday evening.

Everything started off OK then the man started asking questions.
"Why is the traffic so heavy?"
So its rush hour Friday evening,
"I will miss my flight"
What time is it at?
"I don't know the papers are in my bag"

The next part puzzled me.

"Why didn't you come on the N3?"
This is the direct route, I get a bus lane most of the way as well.
But I will check on the map where the N3 is later on.

So we arrive at the airport and the total is €26, he pays me and gets his change and walks away.
Before he gets too far his wife pushes him back to make him tip me.

So I get back into the car and look at the map.
N3 Navan Rd,
So the other taxi driver had gone on to the M50, right past Ballymun, Finglas over to Blanchardstown exit and into town on  the Navan Rd

My trip probably cost 1/2 what he paid before and he was reluctant to tip me?
The only thing I can think of is that he was sore that he had been scalped the first time so he felt bad.

One thing that has happened since the taxi numbers has increased beyond supply is that some taxi drivers will take any opportunity to scam their passengers, the regulator is not doing his job at all so they get away with it time and time again, so they feel more confident to do it again.

This is why the HailO system gives the passenger some protection with its trace back system.

I think I will have to grow a thicker skin !

One thing that every taxi driver should have in his tool kit is a plugging kit.
It contains a pointed file a needle with a big eye at the point and few strings coated in tar type compound.
So Its Saturday night and you hear Click Click Click Click coming from a wheel.
Yes folks you have picked up a nail. It will stay up until you get home, Jack it up a bit and pull out the screw, if it has gone through you have to file out the hole and push the string in and back out, then cut the ends off.

Sound as a pound and done in a jiffy.
