Laugh a little
The Taxi Ride
Maurice Bloom had just picked up his first passenger of the evening. After about 5 minutes of driving, the passenger suddenly tapped Maurice on his shoulder to ask him a question.
Maurice screamed, lost control of his taxi, nearly hit a bus, went up onto the pavement and stopped only inches from a shop window.
For a second, everything went very quiet in the taxi, then Maurice said, “Look mate, don’t ever do that again. You scared the living daylights out of me.”
His passenger apologised and said, “I didn’t realise that a little tap could scare you so much.”
Maurice replied, “Sorry, it’s not really your fault. Today is only my second day as a cab driver – I’ve been driving hearses for the past 25 years.”
