My Best Ever Nutter (up to now)

I got a flag on Marsh Lane by the Jollys,2 young lads,1 Say's "he wants to go to Fazacerley Hospital,Stoddard House,you'll get paid when you get their,but can you drop me off on Sefton Road on the way (it's not on the way) so i say "whats with the get paid when we get their,I've never heard that b4" so the other one Say's "it's cool mate,you get paid out of my account when we get their" so when I'm driving down Sefton Road one of them says "just here mate" so next thing they start hugging each other and give a goodbye KISS,so while I'm waiting to carry on with the journey i think to which house he goes into to i can call back if i don't get paid,so the lad's walking forever so i have to pull away,but keeping an eye on him in my mirror,then as i turn right,the lad thinks I'm out of sight,he stops dead and does an about turn,so i pulled over and said to the guy still in the cab"listen lad,you've got to get out,this isn't good your mate's just done an about turn their so he doesn't want me to know were he lives".
So the lad assures me,"promise ye mate you'll get paid" arriving at Stoddard house.9.60 on the meter the lad says "hang on here mate and I'll get you the money" so i say "nar hang on a min lad,I'll go in with you" worse was to come,we went to reception and said "my name's so and so,I've just been released from Marsh Lane Police Station to report back here,I'm being charged with attempted murder" my jaw nearly hit the floor,i got paid eventually but i was sure glad to be out of that place........

This Is Robbie The Rat

They call him the rat for a reason,he earned this name,he is also known as "lower than a snake's belly"he had a regular fare who happened to be blind who he used to do messages for, but got knobed off coz she said he was a JANGLER,anyway,Snell gets the job,give's her her stuff then she hands him a 20 pound note,so Snells made up with this,then she says "hold on Robbie told me the fare's have gone up heres another fiver "....THE FARES NEVER WENT UP.....SHAME ON YOU RAT..........................


Young Phil,one of Metro's finest operators was asking the lads if they knew how to get a stuck CD out of a car stereo,got no replies till his cousin Dave said "gis a look",put the stereo on pressed the eject button and the CD came out,"what were you pressing "so Phil pointed to the button he was pressing that had AC on it (AIR CONDITIONING) no wonder the CD wouldn't come out...........................

Total Disrespect For Law

The View-Same Jeans(sorry i had to)

You Watch What.......

Because of my job,i don't see much of everyday TV,so what i do is get into a TV serial and download the complete series,then i can watch an episode when i get in from work,most of these shows are shown in the USA many weeks b4 we get them,i was hooked on Invasion,but in the USA they show about 12 episodes then take a break for about 3 months(why do they do that) then the big let down,it was supposed to go to series 2 but got cancelled ........AHHHHHHH

Heroes,this is x-men type of stuff,starts off a bit slow,introducing characters and how they develop their power,but it is way past cool !

Then Lost,episode 1 was great the special effects were out of this world,(a cyber Friend is into it big time)series 1 went cool,series 2 told you a lot more,then series 3,still no better off,I'm losing heart with this now!

Supernatural,is cool but you don't really have to watch them in order,about 2 ghost buster brothers,searching for the demon that killed their mother.

Now finally what I've got into big time is Day Break,it's about a guy relives the same day(like groundhog day)who has been framed for murder and takes different paths each day to try and see who framed him?

Their may be more but you's may think i'm a serial killer lol.(thank you for watching?)

Snellgrove's New Story

Those of you who don't know Snelly,he's a lovely lad,do you a good turn b4 he'd do you a bad 1,but he is known to go on a bit,let's say he got blessed with the gift of the gab...........His Mrs once asked one of the lad's "ye know when he goes out to work,does he chat shit all night"(you know him only too well Paula)anyway,a young lad flags him down,the lad had been involved in a fight and was bleeding from a cut above his eye,and wants to go to Hatton Hill Rd,so Snell says to him "listen lad,I'll take you home but i don't want blood all over my cab,I'm trying to earn a living here" so he gives the lad some kitchen roll and says"hold this on the cut,apply some pressure on it and try to stop it bleeding,let me know when you need more tissue,just keep it pressed hard,and when you get home,wash it with some sterile water and put some Vaseline on it to try and stop the blood flow,if that doesn't work,you may have to go to hospital and get it glued or stitched or something"in the mean time the lad stars saying "Arrrrrrrrrr,it's killing me"...."just keep wiping it,do you need anymore tissue" the lad says are we nearly their yet?so Snell tells him"nearly,were by the old Secrets"the lad says"pull over here,how much do i owe you""3.80" "here's a fiver,keep the f***ing change lar,you've done my f***ing head in ".....Not so much as a thanx........
(not to mention his chance to meet an iternational football player)

Guna Got Egged

This was one of the funniest things I'd seen for a long time,Gunaman was driving down Linacre Road with his window down,kids threw an egg at him and it splattered on his chest,i was trying to get a photo but the lad wasn't in a very good mood,he called me some terrible names,things i couldn't repeat,lucky I'm not easily offended lol,i think he even threatened me with violence at one time!
I had to tell him "it could have been worse,it could have happened to me".

Murder at Smeaton Street

I don't know if this is a wind up and its not funny if a person's dead but.........Bravo10 said............he was with a guy (who was a regular customer of ours) the guy went into his house then came out looking a bit shocked and asked the driver if he would go into the house and be a witness of a murder scene,our operator told him to say no and for him to get the police?

Sheriff Joe Arpaio

To those of you not familiar with Joe Arpaio, he is the Maricopa County Sheriff (Arizona) and he keeps getting elected over and over again.These are some of the reasons why: 1. Sheriff Joe Arpaio created the "tent city jail" to save Arizonafrom spending tens of million of dollars on another expensive prison complex. 2. He has jail meals down to 40 cents a serving and charges the inmates for them. 3. He banned smoking and porno magazines in the jails, and took away their weightlifting equipment and cut off all but "G" movies. He says:"they're in jail to pay a debt to society not to build muscles so they can assault innocent people when they leave." 4. He started chain gangs to use the inmates to do free work on countyand city projects and save taxpayer's money. 5. Then he started chain gangs for women so he wouldn't get sued for discrimination. 6. He took away cable TV until he found out there was a federal courtorder that required cable TV for jails. So he hooked up the cable TVagain but only allows the Disney channel and the weather channel. 7. When asked why the weather channel he replied: "so these morons will know how hot it's gonna be while they are working on my chaingangs." 8. He cut off coffee because it has zero nutritional value and is therefore a waste of taxpayer money. When the inmates complained, he told them, "This isn't the Ritz/Carlton. If you don't like it, don'tcome back." 9. He also bought the Newt Gingrich lecture series on US history thathe pipes into the jails. When asked by a reporter if he had any lecture series by a Democrat, he replied that a democratic lecture series that actually tells the truth for a change would be welcome and that it might even explain why 95% of the inmates were in his jails inthe first place. 10. With temperatures being even hotter than usual in Phoenix (116degrees just set a new record for June 2nd), the Associated Pressreports: About 2,000 inmates living in a barbed- wire-surrounded tent encampment at the Maricopa County Jail have been given permission to strip down to their government-issued pink boxer shorts. On Wednesday,hundreds of men wearing pink boxer shorts were chatting in the tents,where temperatures reached 128 degrees. "This is hell. It feels like we live in a furnace," said Ernesto Gonzales, an inmate for 2 years with 10 more to go. "It's inhuman." 11. Joe Arpaio, who makes his prisoners wear pink, and eat bologna sandwiches, is not one bit sympathetic. "Criminals should be punishedfor their crimes - not live in luxury until it's time for parole, onlyto go out and commit more crimes so they can come back in to live on taxpayers money and enjoy things many taxpayers can't afford to have for themselves." 12. Wednesday he told all the inmates who were complaining of the heatin the tents: "It's between 120 to 130 degrees in Iraq and oursoldiers are living in tents too, and they have to walk all day in the sun, wearing full battle gear and get shot at, and they have not committed any crimes, so shut your damned mouths!"Way to go, Sheriff!If all prisons were like yours, there would be a lot less crime and we would not be in the current position of running out of prison spaces.Sheriff Joe was just re-elected Sheriff in Maricopa County ,Arizona

Neil's Gone (Got Another Job)

We have now lost one of our best stars(?)Neil had some great stories and i'm going to miss him now he's left,but he did go out with a bang,i may have to start another blog coz of his many stories,heres his las one and i'll update it when i have time,Young David (gadget)who drives metro 2,was talking to John alpha 8 about vintage planes when Neil walks down the rank and joins them Dave says "i was in the R.A.F. cubs when i was a kid and my dad paid for us to go on a trip where we went up in a vintage cargo plane,it was the trip of a lifetime" then Neil butt's in "my auld fella used to fly them"John an Dave look at each other with a look of disbelief,"yer he used to fly them over the jungle and crash them (WHAT) but they had no engines in them" John getting a bit curious asks "how did he fly them if they had no engines" Neil explains,"he used to get towed into the air then they'd unhook him so he would crash into the jungle (as ye do).............You might think this story is a bit far fetched.......if i had to crash vintage planes I'd opt for the desert or the sea....certainly not the jungle....I'm going to email this to Dave and get his side of the story.
