Right you are there blackpool
How much are plates going for in blackpool atm
Do you have your own plate, how much did you pay for it and do you think it was worth investing in?

It's comforting to know that your sense of humour hasn't changed and as I said you missed the point entirely :wink: I see Grandad got the drift tho :D


Eh, you mean everytime someone misses out a full stop we have to point it out? Some people don't even bother with them, full stop. (See what I did there? :D )

Or when grandad misspells 'sentance' or I misspell 'deficiencies'? :oops:

Actually, I don't think I misspelt deficiencies at all, but is it really worth looking up, or indeed - to come back to the issue in hand - pointing out? [-(

Congratulations jack
As I've only been working oxford less than a year with my knowledge I'd say if you want to drive whole shift I suggest come on around 2pm and finish 1am-2 as work at that times tends to quiet down so no point staying after 2am trains still come but most cabbies will be there so you'll Just end up waiting for nothing and weekends 4pm work goes on till around 4am as clubs close but they'll still be a little work after when the last club closes at 4am but if you want to drive a shift and a driver to do another shift there's day 7am-5pm and night 6pm-2am/4am most drivers will work nights and its 60/40 to you, you pay everything fuel,insurance,mot,tax the driver takes his 40%.
You might want to join a taxi firm so you'll have a radio circuit there's station cars Just out of oxford new firm I am with them good fares mainly oxford to surrounding villages or villages to oxford and weekly rent it £90.
Just private message me for any more info.

It was a joke that went straight over your head. Grandad picked up on it and misspelled sentance but you seem to have a bee in your bonnet :roll:

Or perhaps it was such a feeble joke that I didn't notice it? :roll:

And maybe you'll actually get round to explaining it to us lesser mortals sometime? #-o

Oh how ive missed you, now i know this will be hard for you to get your head around but the so called value of my plate is not something i dwell on.Not nearly as much as you ! Ive had it for god knows how long so its paid for itself .The same way say,my house has.As in life some people rent,some buy.Some maybe like yourself have a hint of dare i say it "jelousy" xx

By the way, Toots, Skippy's missing full stop was a punctuation error rather than a grammatical one.

Thus one spelling mistake and no sign of any grammatical errors at all; that's why I took issue with your dig at Skippy, joking or otherwise. [-(

Thus by the standards of the forum generally - ie numerous spelling, grammatical and punctuation errors - Skippy's post was an object lesson in good English, particularly from a Scotsman :wink:

But as I said I'm not quite so sure about the substantive points he was making :D

Stop making a mountain out of a molehill ffs. I never mentioned the full stop anyway. It's a good job I know Skippy has a sense of humour and as I posted earlier 'don't worry, be happy' :lol: :lol: I made a deliberate error on grammer, I use spellchecker ffs I'm not perfect :lol: :lol:

Me making a mountain out of a molehill? :lol:

It was you who made the initial point, and all I did was post a gentle response asking what was wrong with Skippy's grammar, but you clearly had no answer and since then have done your level best to make it look like I'm the one who's missing the point, being pedantic, making a mountain out of a molehill etc. :roll:

Listen, I know there's absolutely no one on here likes me posting, but don't worry, I'll be out of your hair soon when the site's back up and running properly.

And to be honest I couldn't really care less about TDO, but have just come back briefly to help someone out that I have a great deal of respect for, and because despite the bull on here there's also lots of useful information in the archives for research etc. And because it was yours truly who set the site up originally [-(

A few days ago we thought the site and all the archives had basically disappeared permanently - and we certainly wouldn't have been starting it from scratch again - and I still really can't work out why I felt so bothered about it #-o

Why on earth would you think that. I enjoy your posting. Serious issues get sorted but a bit of banter along the way livens the day up.
