It must be the season for NUTCASES
I picked up a guy at the Mespil hotel last Friday, other people were waiting and they let him go first.
"Thank God you came. My flight to Toronto takes off in 20 minutes!"
Now you and I and the dog down the road knows that you have to present yourself at the check in desk 2 hours before your flight for long haul flights.
He got a bit of a fright when I got him to the airport in 17 minutes.
I will never tell them to calm down and that they are too late.
Nutter number 2 arrived too late for his flight to Amsterdam.
What did he do?
He ran past the check in desk, kicked open the door downstairs and tried to block the plane.
Now the question has to be asked.
What would have happened if he was a terrorist?
I mean he made it on to the tarmac no bother.
Then the next day he was brought to court and when he came out he dropped his pants and Mooned the press.
Nutter number 3
Was a taxi driver who was having a row with a cyclist on the North Strand. Plenty of shouting and the taxi driver slammed into him knocking him clean off the bike.
Then he drove away with everything on video.`
It is looking bad for the taxi driver.
Nutter number 4
A Cyclist breaks the lights followed by a white taxi, they tear down to Belvadere place and at the bottom of the road the taxi crosses the road to the wrong side and mounts the footpath.
It is said that the cyclist broke one of the mirrors of the taxi.
Still is it worth loosing your license over?
My insurance costs me more that €2,000 for this year
6 years full no claims bonus.
What would it be with penalty points and a crash to settle.
Work wise it has been great recently, this happens when the swallows go and the schools and courts start working again. One theory was that the school teachers would work as taxi drivers during the long holidays, then when school started again business would rocket for the regular drivers.
You could get a headache trying to work it out.
I am chasing money on behalf of a friend. He is a film maker and this money was due to him in the summer. Requests for payment have fallen on deaf ears. So today I posted off all the details again.
A good customer of mine who has a wide number of connections googled the name while he was in the car. He knows people who do business with him.
I will put in a word next week.
It will be really embarrassing for him when the word gets out that he dosent pay his tab.
A story from the taxi was that a young college guy worked for Bill Gates as a caddy, the lad said to himself that he would be in for a good tip. He tried to impress him with advice and after the game he paid him the normal amount with no tip.
The young lad cursed him to hell and the next day he got a call from his university to say that Bill Gates had paid all his college fees and that he had wished him good luck in the future.
Another person of interest in the car was Tommy Tiernan. I did not recognise him and asked him what he did for a living. Then I turned around and recognized him and we had a great trip.
He has a 9 year old son who is mad into magic.
This makes me feel nostalgic for the old Dublin
