A tap on the Shoulder.....
A true story from the pages of the Manchester Evening News:
Last Wednesday a passenger in a taxi heading for Salford station
leaned over to ask the driver a question and gently tapped him on the
shoulder to gain his attention.
The driver screamed, lost control of the cab, nearly hit a bus, drove
up over the curb and stopped just inches from a large, plate glass
window leaving startled pedestrians running in all directions.
For a few moments everything was silent in the cab. Then, the shaking
driver asked, "Are you OK? I'm so sorry, but you scared the living
daylights out of me."
The badly shaken passenger apologized to the driver and said,
"I didn't realize that a mere tap on the shoulder would startle
someone so badly."
The driver replied, "No, no, I'm the one who is sorry, it's entirely
my fault. Today is my very first day driving a cab.
For the past twenty-five years I've been driving a hearse......"
