It's out there if you want it. That's one of my motto's about this job. Trouble is I can be too lazy for my own good at times. I am always chasing money and putting myself under pressure.
I'm sort of drifting towards day work at the moment. The secret is to get out of the front door and drive away. I picked this guy up yesterday in the Maida Vale area and he wanted to go to an address in Acton. He was on his phone the whole time and I got the impression he was a "Somebody". That's what I call passengers who may well be celebrities but I just don't know who or can't put a name to. He was one of these Italian/American singer types and from all the references he was making, I thought he may have been one of the Four Seasons, Franki Valli's band or similar. Any way I went home later and surfed the net but I'm still none the wiser today. But to go back to day work, I did ok in the four hours I was out, probably better than in the evening. I found I was busier rather than having to do time on the taxi ranks. So, I am off out now and I'll let you know how I get on.
