Morning Guvnor - where too then ?
‘Eathrow it is then. Terminal 5. That’s BA then. And where in this glorious world are you ’eading to ?
Sydney ! Blimey guv - you know what’s going on down there don’t you ?
Oh right - they’ve called you in. Of COURSE they ‘ave.
Counter Terrorism is it ?
No Guv - you don’t need to kill me if you tell me - I get the drift.
Anyway - I can tell you don’t want to talk - but ‘ere’s the thing - just call up Travis Kalanick. He’s in control.
Travis ? CEO of Uber guv.
Well - it’s obvious innit.
Uber have had a bit of a hard time down under - know what I mean … but wallop - one Terrroist in a chocolate cafe - and bobs your uncle. First they charge 4 times the usual for all their rides - absolutely coining it - and then - just as the complaints roll in - suddenly free rides … Uber the hero … cos nobody remembers - do they gov.
Here’s what I would do - check out Travis - bet you’ll find that the Terrorist is an Uber driver. I mean when you add up the rapes, attacks and killings across the world attributed to Uber drivers …. well Terrorism is a slam dunk. Know what I mean.
I had been going through my files and sorting out some of my older writing and discovered a series of posts relating to Taxis.
Taxi Chronicles are a short series of stories I wrote around 2014.
I was exploring the issues I have with Uber as an organization I saw as badly exploiting people. I set up a twitter account and started to write and comment. It’s kind of what I do - someone should have invited me to join the Grumpy Old Men show!
