Taxi Chronicles - We’re All In It Together

So anyway that’s why I drive a taxi !”

Hello ? Hello ?”

Bloody marvelous innit - someone actually asks you a question - and you give them a thoughtful and considered reply and you look and BOOM - asleep. I mean it only took me from Knightsbridge to Chiswick to tell him the story. Bloody tourists.

Sleep though - an interesting concept - must try it some time - but with the missus as she is - well you know - I like to be out’ - if you know what I mean.

Oh - morning sir - catching a little nap there were you ?”

Yes - I know - the rocking rhythms’ of the taxi are very restful aren’t they.”

Hell fire - I’ve got a live one here rocking rhythms’ - first time I’ve heard that one since I did the knowledge.

Yes - sir. Born and bred - within the sound of Bells of Bow - your actual cockney - alive and well - transporting you to you destination”

Well sir, back in the day for me it was either the knowledge or driving a bus - and me ? Me - i like my freedom. So buckling down when I was young - allowed me to have the freedoms later. It all worked out.”

Well sir - just consider his position on anything - and you will son come to realize that he is just a wolf in sheep clothing.”

Well sir - I mean someone who isn’t what we think he is - and is actually a lot worse.”

Where you from sir?”

Oh yes - now I’ve heard that’s a bootyful country - not been there myself mind - but never heard a bad thing about it.”

Well - yes - apart from the inflation.”

Yeah and the unemployment - that must be a problem.”

Gang crime … I know - well you never get to read much about that in the papers - so sorry you have that.”

Oh you have immigration issues aswell do you? Well - I never knew.”

Yeah - we have the 1% issues here aswell guv - but what you going to do ?”

Anyway gov - we’re pulling into Heathrow now - terminal 3 right?”

There we go - well - listen - have a good trip back to Wales - as I said - lovely country.”
