People now saying 'an abundance of caution'.

Where the f*** has that phrase come from that the world now uses? [-(

Heathrow T2 just 4 people trying to process 10000 passengers no wonder it is taking 3 hours

My passenger was telling me in Dubai they have 50 people processing passengers and there are NO delays there

The busiest I have ever seen T2 and as for the only 1 person allowed to meet and greet well I saw one lady with 10 family members to greet her :roll:

No signs on seats to keep people apart no tannoy messages just a complete free for all and if you tried to social distance someone would fill the gap


Hope you have got yourself tested after spending hours in a car with punters who could have travelled via Dubai from pretty much anywhere in the world.

I think you are very brave to take such a risk, what with all these new variants that are going around.

Still, I suppose it was worth it, for all that money,eh?

Iran,eh? Just recorded their highest daily death total. Still, I’m sure you’ll be fine.

Reuters news agency: Iran orders ten day shutdown in face of fourth wave.

BBC: Iran death rates actually four times higher than admitted.

Think that can be said about most of the world, including China.

Rutland plated Hackney Carriage working in Lincoln on the Uber app. Lincoln licensing know, Rutland licensing know, and yet he is still operating in Lincoln. He even drops off and picks up on the station and stops for a chat. Claims it is perfectly legal for him to operate in Lincoln. However, he says if I was to register with Uber, I would not be legal to operate in Lincoln. Confused? I know I am.

Photograph it and send it to your council and his council.

Or get a driver to punch him on the nose.

Person who books a car for 19.30 then changes it to 20.00 and changes again to 20.30 and changes again to 21.00 and when we finally go to pick him up he gets into another vehicle that he booked at 20.50.

You have a Rutland plated driver AND a Melton plated driver working in Lincoln. Work must be good.

Yeah but they will still be able to book a cab after messing you about.


My gripe.

People just assuming your back seats go down and you don’t mind filling your car with 11 bags of wood clippings. 0.6 miles. £2.60 wait for £2.40 change then asks you to take it round the back of the house. They walk off and go in the front door.

Or holding a dog and just expecting you to take dogs. Giving you grief because I only take guide dogs.

I am all up for being nice. Helpful. But when it’s just out of pure disrespect and ignorance. I become just as disrespectful as they are.
