Looks like Bruxelles just emptied out:
Some of the more regular readers here will know I’m a fan of audio books, (currently listening to Cormac Mc Carthy -All the pretty horses, a lot less violent than his other books)
However, my son has every episode of South Park on his i-touch and I’ve taken to bringing it with me at night, to watch episodes while on the rank, averaging about two and a half episodes each time I queue – about nine episodes a night! my head is now officially melted………. thank you Trey Parker and Matt Stone.
So now the nightly routine is as follows:
Customer in car – listen to a selection from an MP3 cd – anything from Led Zeppelin to Chopin depending on the customers age and dress.
No customer in car and moving – Audiobook
Queueing at the ranks- Southpark
Most drivers I pass on the rank are reading books, playing PSP / DS lights, or watching videos on some or other appliance….thank god for technology!
Well done to Joe Higgins for getting elected to the European parliment, in no small part I’m sure to the support of Taxi drivers around the city, in thanks for his support of the recent protests.
Goes to show the strenght we could have if we used our numbers properly, our representatives should insist that before the next general election each of the political parties should have a Taxi policy in place and allow us to vote for the party that delivers most. Currently, the only party with such a document is Labour and for that reason alone their getting my vote.
Screw you guys..I’m goin’ …..HOME!………..Okaaaaaaay?
