Old dears with large f*** off trolleys.

The trolleys are too big to get in a saloon, and the old dears are to old and doddery to get into a larger cab.

Get out of the car you lazy cow and walk to the counter. :sad: :sad: :sad:



as long as the meter is running whats wrong with that ?


Waiting time in most areas is píss poor, here at night it's 25p a minute (£15 an hour), take of your running costs and you're on less than minimal wage.

If you don't mind waiting ages in a queue at low prices, just remember how much your meter ticks over when you're driving along at 30-40mph, there is a massive difference.

That's why I don't go through the drive through or wait for punters outside takeaways.

Nope and I don't understand why the government lets them allow hackneys to not have them

Customers who change their return flight details but don't tell the driver who is f***ing well picking them up.

Yes I got paid twice, but fighting the M25 twice as much as you need to is not fun. :sad: :sad: :sad: :sad: :sad:

Them 4 wheel box trolleys that they can't fold down resulting in you not being able to close the boot? They look at you gone out when you tell them to get a bigger Taxi.

What also gets my goat up is when they load them with tins of dog food and expect you to lift it into the boot.

Parking up at Heathrow to meet passengers on a flight that lands at 09.00 to then receive a call that they have missed the flight and wont be arriving until 13.00!
