True taxi story Chugs.

I was having a bastard of a night - long waits, small fares - when I got this bloke from the International terminal. 

Well dressed, expensive luggage   ....   hops in the back and didn't say a word except for his suburb.  So I start driving towards there.

After about 15 minutes he suddenly says "pull over" with some urgency.  Well, I've heard that before and know what it means!

He staggers out of the car and I realise he is totally pissed.  He leans over to throw up and falls down the embankment. 

On Tonkin Highway there is a section that has quite a drop-off and guess where we are?  So crashes down to the bottom and lies completely still.

I was convinced he was dead. 

I carefully make my way down to where he is whilst dialing 000 for an ambulance.  As I reach the bottom he stirs, struggles to his feet and starts brushing himself off.

I help him back up to the top and tell him I'm not prepared to take him any further.  I've had a gutful.  I get his bags out of the back of my wagon and drive off.

I don't want him throwing up in my car and he's barely coherent. 

I go up to the next lights, do a u-turn and head back towards the airport.  As I come up to where he is on the opposite side I see him standing there, forlorn, with his luggage.

It's the middle of winter, freezing cold and I realise I can't just leave him there. 

So it's up to the lights, another u-turn, and I pull up.  Grab his luggage, whack it in the back and open the door for him.  He tumbles in and I go back to the drivers seat.

As I take off he says   "Mate thanks a lot for picking me up."  "You're a top bloke."

I say "no worries."   

He says  "Yeah, unlike the last bastard taxi driver I had!"  "Kicked me out and left me stranded!"

Geez it was a tough trip from then on.  I was trying so hard not to laugh I was gagging. 

Got a decent tip too!

Ascot wrote on his post..

Just  to again put things in perspective.  My daughter performed a premature delivery of girl, 23 weeks into the pregnancy last night.  Too small and immature to save, she had to let nature take its course.  Baby lived an hour before passing away cuddled on mothers chest.  Parents distraught, doctors and nurses in tears.  And we worry about trivial racing matters in this place.

So true Ascot....we and others having a good time at Straddie and your daughter going through the problems she has to endure....and us Forumites getting all hot and bothered on what he said she said...especially the stewards of this forum....is it now time to now settle and let "the war" past and move on....I think most has been said...lets move on...

I do not want a reply on this post....this is an opinion...on my blog...just suck it  in ...think about it.....and move on...Last time I moved out a Olive Branch...bang .....

I want to share with you my adventure to this forum....

About 8 years ago I had no interest on the net....but the lovely wife was getting pissed off  with me using the puter  mainly for betting reasons...so I got my first laptop...it was on...surfing the net...caught on to this site...mmmm..interesting ...got involved with a lot of stirring...and some bad Forumites at that time...but that was sorted in due cause..and back into the good books..so to speak...


Then...I noticed a lot of Brisssie people's were  on this forum and it got me started on QLD racing...
Really interesting people's....and I noticed when I first come on here...a lot were wondering who is this Chuggers fellow....the Mods reply in quiet were to laugh at....now that I know...read the comments when I was a Mod...I think some where scared of me or who I was but I am a simple fella from the Gong....and a short arse kid ....just getting interested into Brissie racing...

To be continued....

Then I went up to Brissie to met DD...I was worried....but he treated me as a royal person...I  stuffed it up by spilling my wine on his good friend .....that was a embrassing moment....but I have to liive with that...and I have apologised.....


To be continued..

Where are the jokes?

Talk about false advertising!!!!!

I thought I'd be rolling in the aisles with every post.

"We want laughs"

"Whendowe want them?"

"Now"

Not sure why my post above was re-posted from Dec 2010 without context.

So let me give you context.

The original name of this thread was "Chuggers Chuckles" and I was making the lighthearted comment that there wasn't anything to chuckle about at the time of posting.
