Just wait until you've had to fork out £32,000 for a Cab that you'll have to scrap seven years on... :cry:

I think I would buy a £25,000 VW, and share it with one of the lads. :wink:

That's £12,500 each, half office dues, half insurance, half running costs. Methinks I will be far better off. :-$

Better work better money, thank the lord for licensing, and for the likes of Mr GBC charging so much. =D>

. . . likewise Ollie, thanks to your quality operators like Mr Ali, our goes from strength to strength.

So next time your in paying you office fee's, be sure to pass on my heartfelt thanks. :lol:

Oh, you might want to pop into 'Harringey Cars' at the end of St Annes Road, and tell them about how busy it is.
When I passed tonight at Midnight it was chock a block with rather bored looking drivers and their colourful collection of cars.

I particularly liked the 'P' reg Astra saloon. Nice.

Comfy for those trips up to the flyers. :roll:

So Sussex you do believe in the the double shift system, after all if you did have your VW, you would be sharing your shifts as well.

I believe in drivers doing what they think is best for themselves, and having the option to choose. What I would do is good for good old me. :wink:

Making drivers drive at night, or making them feel grateful for the option of driving at night, is good for the owners, not always the drivers. [-X
