Ta. Take it easy yourself. And stop worrying so. Brexit is going to be the best thing to happen for us all.

Does it involve going somewhere warm?

I thought I'd never say it but, it's been the best move I ever made getting out of the trade, it served me well but it got to the stage where I was working for nothing.

Good luck in your new venture mate.

No. Not doing the Spanish expat thing, but other irons in the fire.

Whoever leaves or has left the cab trade recently then I can't fault you cos it really is a minimum wage industry now.

Didn't you get yourself fixed up with a shed and a hobby to keep yourself clear of household jobs first :roll:

Starting up a new business venture soon. I’m developing an app so that people can book a taxi from their mobile phone. I think I’ve spotted a gap in the market. Going to call it Rebu.
