Tyre pressure monitoring systems that have aluminium valve shafts that need replacing.

Replacement TPMS valves that stop sending after 14 months, just outside the warranty period!!

Punters who don't speak for the entire journey, except for when you are slowing down with your indicator on to turn into their street to say 'left here mate'. :roll:

Mercedes drivers who come storming up the road as you are doing a 3 point turn off the rank insist on barging through then drive very slowly in front looking for a parking space and insist on making you wait whilst they maneuver slowly into it :evil: :evil: :evil:

just about to knock off back of the rank then a lad jumps in for tall'ton I thought I recognised him from a couple of weeks ago as a serial bilker that caught me out but this time he did the same thing insist on he didn't know the address but could direct me and then disappear round the back of the house and not reappear but it's an address we picked him up from a couple of weeks ago when he attempted to do another one of my drivers so I knew which house he was in

kept banging on the front door and eventually after 20 minutes he came out as his girlfriend was annoyed because she was trying to put the kids to bed got half the fare out of him and made sure he his girlfriend and ALL the neighbours knew that he mustn't get into any of my taxis again

Hopefully I've embarrassed him enough to ensure he doesn't try it on again

only got just under half the fare out of him as that was all the money his girlfriend had but I suppose something is better than nothing

Did you not consider telling him to f*** off when he got in the cab in the first place.

Even if I’d had a slight doubt it would have been money up front.

A customer who want to argue that today is not a bank holiday. He says it is a public holiday and not a bank holiday. I asked him if he had been to the bank today and he said "don't be daft it is closed today." #-o
