I feel like I've been shafted with the rough end of a pineapple!!
I'm refering to the amount of money I was charged by my garage for getting my cab through it's annual overhaul. £606 plus another hundred for the rental cab I had for the last three days. I must admit though that you get what you pay for and that happens to be a top garage and they did a really nice job. I started going there last year when I bought the cab and they have maintained it for me ever since.
I thought it would be busy tonight but as 2am approached I had taken less money than the last three nights. There seemed to be quite a few people out and about but at the end of the day it's all down to luck. Best job of the night was Victoria Station to Highbury Hill to drop off 2 and then onto Muswell Hill....total fare was £32.
Just popped in to Tesco's in Sutherland Avenue to get my daughters packed lunch and treated myself to some cooked chicken legs, a packet of crabsticks and a dairy cream slice. On the way out I gave the resident beggar a £1 coin much to his surprise as he never asked me for it. I have my moments...
