That’s right folks, this post cannot wait until after I sleep for fear that I may forget something. This night, was weird. It was slow as all Wednesdays are wont to be but it was certainly not lacking entertainment value.
The first passenger, was really upset that she had to wait for 2 hours for her cab. Apparently, the computers were down just before I started working, and hers was one of the trips that was left hanging in the ether.
She wanted me to give her a discount because she had to wait for so long. Here’s the kicker, in the 2 hours that she waited, she could’ve easily walked the distance she was travelling and back.
Then, there were the two guys I picked up at HEB, with I shit you not, 3 cart fulls of groceries.
They had something like 10 gallons of milk, 15 loaves of bread and so on and so forth. It took them a good 5 minutes to load up the car, and I do mean load up the car. The trunk was full, and they ended up having bags with them in the back seat as well as having to put some bags in the front seat.
We get to their apartment, and I’m thinking it’s going to take them awhile to unload the car, but no! From out of nowhere come the “Tamil Tigers” meaning, about 15 guys come out from the wood works and unload the car in a snap.
If I had to guess, and I do, I would say that it was these 2 guy’s turn to go buy groceries for them all and all these guys are living in a 2 bedroom apartment paying something like $10 a month in rent.
OK, maybe I’m exaggerating about the rent, but I’m sure they all live in the same place.
The most interesting group of the night, were these two ladies that I picked up on 6th street. At first, they’re wanting to go to either a karaoke place or a gay bar.
Nothing wrong with either choice, except that I don’t know where there is a karaoke bar downtown. The rest of their party are in a different cab, so when they get into my car they say “follow that cab!”
After driving around for a bit, one person gets out of the other cab, and comes over to my cab.
Turns out, this lady is one of my original passenger’s mom, and she wants to go to a country place.
Off we go to Dallas night club, where I drop them off and promise to come get them later.
Well, later comes around, and they’re hungry and drunk.
Two of them want Jack in the box, and the other one wants Whataburger.
During the traipse to the drive thrus, one of them shares that she’s married, has 3 kids and was out back making out with some random dude from the bar. After that, the mom, says she’s horny and wants to go to a sex store.
Off we go to the Megaplexxx.
The daughter wants the mom to buy her a toy, because she hasn’t had any in over a month and her fingers just aren’t doing the trick.
I waited for them and by the time all is said and done, the third lady is the only one that buys something. She bought something called an iBuzz, which is a vibrator adaptor for the iPod. Crazy shit.
OK, that’s all for now. When I wake up, I’ll proof read this post and make any corrections and clarifications that I think are necessary. I just had to post this while it was fresh in my memory.
