Well I've broke the back of my bills for this month. It's great to get the latest cab payment out of the way. A decent night was tonight. A couple of nice rides and a load of smaller ones. I accept credit cards and took a job from Canary Wharfe to Crystal Palace. I swiped the passengers card on the way and my terminal decided to seize up. There is no contingency for this kind of event so I decided to trust him and let him walk away while I sorted out the problem. (I kept his card details). I had to reset the machine and enter his details manually and eventually the job was accepted and I got my £31. I have to forward the printed receipt on to him by post.
I stopped off at Victoria and visited the Starbucks there and decided to try a Mocca Frappucino for the first time. I also got myself a tall latte just in case but the frappucino was really nice albeit a little cold on my teeth.
Once my teeth had got back to normal I put my cab on the rank there at Victoria Station and picked up a fare out to Woldingham Station in Surrey. It was a first for me and I hadn't even heard of it but a quick glance at the Master Atlas of Greater London told me exactly where to go. That was the nights best job at £50.
It is my son's 19th birthday today. On his 18th I said I would pay whatever it took for him to pass his driving test and he's still trying a year on, so I guess it saves me thinking of what to get him.
