My little prayer every day doing out is "Dear God give me a chance to do something good today"
So he (or she) gave me two chances today.
The first one was to help a blind man across the Howth Rd.
I saw him and stopped the car and went over, a young enough guy 35 years old or so.
Crossing back I was remarking to him about all the blind drivers who were driving up to a red light not stopping yet they plainly couldn't notice a blind man crossing.
A woman in a car beside me later on rolled down her window and thanked me for helping the man.
I said that once in the City center around 10 years ago I discovered that we were all totally fucked when people crossed at a padestrian crossing and left a poor blind man standing there at the corner.
On the subject of blindness there was a blind girl once who had lost her sense of direction and I pulled over.
Are you having a problem ?
Yes I turned around and now I don't know which way to go.
Where are you going and I will help you.
We crossed the road and I sent her on her way.
She was foreign lady and a musician.
Imagine she had come here and was using a stick to tap her way around
God she was one of the most beautiful women I ever saw.
I was saddned that she was blind.
She asked to let her see what I looked like then she ran her fingers across my face.
You are very handsome and a good man, give yourself a shave and you will look fantastic.
God bless her I remember her forever.
Then a young guy left a bag on the floor of the taxi, he sent me an email and I dropped it over today.
His father was pushing €10 into my hand, which I totally refused.
You cannot take money for being good or doing the right thing.
On the other hand
A customers husband dropped his fone in a taxi and the rang it straight away, 6 or 7 times no reply.
The next day they got a call, "I have your fone I am going into town later and I will give it to you".
She met him and he said "I had to drive into town from Lucan with this, the fare is €35.00
All you can say about a guy like that is that God might put a hump on his back.
So for the last word.
A taxi driver was bringing 4 youths down to Kimmage along the canal, all of a sudden they jumped out at the lights and ran off.
The taxi driver moved on and he herd a fone ringing in the back of the car.
He pulled over and located the fone.
Hey mister I left my fone in your taxi by mistake
Thats not the only mistake you made tonight is it ?
Well we will forget about that for the moment, we can play a little game together.
Lets see if you can guess these animals?
Moo ! Cow...Very good
Bow wow...Dog you are good at this.
Cluck cluck Chicken Marvellous !!!!! and so on
I have had enough of this now.
You wont be able to identify the next one so I will tell you before you hear it.
This is the sound of your fone being thrown into the canal !!!!!
So what goes around comes around
