Thursday/Friday Yuk

By Oz_Media ·
Well, I'm off camping for the four day weekend (YAY Victoria day!), so I'll leave my weekend Yuk a little early.

A guy calls cab to get to the the airport and it shows up promptly. After giving his destination to his driver, he quietly slips back in to the seat to relax during the ride. A few miles later he notices the driver taking a wierd turn and seemingly heading in the wrong direction.
He leans forward and taps the driver on the shoulder to question his directions and the driver JUMPS out of his skin, screaming hysterically he swerves down the road and slams the breaks on. As white as a ghost he sits there gasping for air and saying "Oh My God!" Over and over again.

The poor passenger, now quite statrled himself, says "I am so sorry I really didn't mean to startle you like that, are you okay?"

Driver says, through deep breaths, "oh, (gasp, it's okay, it's me. Not your fault, sorry to have swerved like that, are you okay, (gasp, sputter, gasp)?

The passenger says "I'm, fine but you look a little shook up, are you okay to drive?"

The driver says "yes, I'll be's just that I drove a hearse for 25 years!"

Have a great weekend everyone.

Speaking of taxi drivers ....

by jardinier In reply to Thursday/Friday Yuk

Our would-be Prime Minister, Labor leader Mark Latham, gained notoriety for breaking a taxi driver's arm on a certain occasion.

The real story came out in a recent interview on the program "Enough Rope" (

When he noticed that a taxi driver was taking him home by the long route, he asked the taxi driver to stop, and he got out of the cab and proceeded to attempt to call another cab on his mobile phone.

The driver got out of the taxi and yelled: "Where's my fare?"
He then grabbed Mark's bag as collateral and headed back to the taxi.

Mark brought the man down in a classic rugby tackle, thus resulting in the broken arm.
