My first night back,I only pick a top class lune up,I was sitting outside The Cat and Fiddle when a guy gets in my cab,I was thinking he didn't look too clever,and he asks to go to Toxteth.......Driving up parliament Street I asked him where abouts he wanted,the conversation went like this...................
Gaz: Where do you want mate.
Nut: Granby Street.
Gaz: O.K. (so I pull into Granby St)
Gaz: Where abouts do you want mate:
Nut: Granby St
Gaz: your in Granby St,where abouts
Nut: just here,how mutch do I owe you
Gaz: 11 pound
Nut: I haven't got it,I've only got a fiver
Gaz: what do you mean you haven't got it
Nut: I haven't got it
Gaz: well your going to have to get it then aren't you
Nut: but I haven't got it
Gaz: well I'll have to take you the police station then
Nut: just let me go
Gaz; I'll tell you what,I'll take you back to Bootle (at this point,talking turns to shouting and swearing,and the guy tries to get out the cab, so I did a uturn and started driving back,looking in the mirror,the guy regains composure and sits back and looks out the window,like nothings happened,so now I'm thinking...The guy's a total lunatic....Get the fucker out...I pull over and said "get out" and he got out and walked away without a care in the world (the opposite way to where he wanted by the way) so I drove back in bewildered thinking.......This is what I missed most about this Job.
