A passenger in a taxi tapped the driver on the
shoulder to ask him something. The driver screamed,
lost control of the cab, nearly hit a bus, drove up
over the curb and stopped just inches from a large
plate glass window.
For a few moments everything was silent in the cab,
then the driver said, “Please, don’t ever do that
again. You scared the daylights out of me.”
The passenger, who was also frightened, apologized
and said he didn’t realize that a tap on the shoulder
could frighten him so much.
To which the driver replied, “I’m sorry, it’s really
not your fault at all. Today is my first day driving a
cab. I have been driving a hearse for the last 25
years.” Submitted via e-mail by member
