Me Golden Bollocks...?
Well last Saturday night about 1.30am I was sitting down on the paddington rank a solitary cab. When all of a sudden another Vito pulled up behind me. I took the opportunity to get out and ask him had he any problems with his doors. to which he replied a few.
Anyway I saw these two guys approaching from behind his cab. looking for a cab I asked them where they were going and the reply was Bayswater Stn. I wasnt too pleased but didn't let them know that. anyway by the time I got back to my cab there was two other punters Standing there asking to go to Maidenhead. In the name of playing the game I took the Bayswater. Gutted about how close I had come to getting a lovely Job. with silverchris & Londoncabby's, Golden Bollox's comment still ringing in my ear's, I was thinking yeah Golden Bollock's my arse. Cant wait to ring them up. Anyway I was just about to drop off at Bayswater station. When a Job popped up on my terminal Ladbroke grove police station As Directed. I was in going home mode and if the destination is known it should show it. Still reeling from how close Id come to a nice job I decide to take a chance & accepted the job up popped on my screen destination HASTINGS.
All of a sudden my whole demeanor changed. The two punters got out and apologised for such a short journey that time of night. "No problem my friend" I assured them. Straight on the phone to L.c To hear the usual reply Golden Bollocks strikes again.
Anyway on arrival at Ladbroke Grove police station. I went into the Reception To find a German guy Three sheets to the wind. Sat opposite a police constable trying to Extract from him where he was going to. So far all he knew was it was Hastings. The copper said to me just take him to Hastings and drop him off. He had £15 on him but had a credit card which had already been authorised by my radio circuit. I asked him had he a phone number in Hastings and he pulled out a blackberry phone from his pocket. too pissed to even be able to take the lock off it . Luckily I have one too. and eventually found his address in Hastings. Anyway after a couple of hours we arrived at his address in Hastings He got out and I Glanced in the back to make sure he had all his belongings to which were few. And made my merry way home around the M25 the biggest dilemma I had was do I go clockwise Or Anti clockwise. I checked the sat-nav which said it was 9miles longer Clockwise, but Anticlockwise Id have to pay the Dartford crossing toll. So I decided Clockwise it was. Sounds on and cruised all the way home. Anyway next day I opened the cab up to give it a good clean out after a Saturday night Fun and Frollicks. There are little cubby holes in the back of these cabs, that some people like to use as bins. It was then I noticed a wallet in one. On closer inspection I found it was the German guy's. After a little detective work I manged to get the telephone Number in Hastings. and found a Sober but frantic German guy that had lost all his credit cards and passport id in his wallet. somewhat relieved by the phone call, He also asked had I found an overcoat and attache case. Which I told him He'd never had in my company. Anyway I sent it special delivery the next day and tracked it all the way.
