Multiple drop offs that want to pay their share of the fare at each drop !
Usually with a £20 for 1/3 of £4.00, then the next with another £20 for the difference between what is now on the meter and what the first drop paid, then the last you have to work out what the previous 2 have already paid, take it off whats finally on the meter and then calculate how much change is needed between the differences ! Phew.

Or the multi drops that at each stage want you to change a £10 to 2x£5 so that thay can give £5 to the next person being dropped off.

Or, and I suspect it's been mentioned on this thread in at least one of the 1400 replies, the multi drop jobs where punters each give the last one money, and when it comes to the end that person ends up with a free ride home.

And they went the furthest.

Or when the person out first gives you a tenner to continue the journey, it's on £4 when they get out, the meter is on £6 and the passenger wants the change.

Having to ask a passenger three or more times where they're going to make sure it matches whats on the PDA and each time getting a mumbled reply. Then a few minutes in they ask where you're going because they've given the wrong address !

Asking whether they want High St. in X town or the High St. in neighbouring Y town, then asking is it High St., Road or Avenue because there's three - only to be met with 'which one do you think' or 'do you not know where you're going, how long you been a taxi driver'.

Or setting off for High St. in town X only to be told you're going the wrong way because they wanted High St. in a different town - you got into a Town X car, in Town X asking for an address which exists in Town X - so unless you say different I'm going to presume it's in Town X not somewhere else.
