Have to share this one. Tale related by taxi driver.
He had a fare earlier that day, a woman in her 40s and her mother in her 60s. Mother asked how much the fare would be as they drove along and was told between 25 and 28 dollars. She said that she only ever paid $15 cash and that drivers accepted that. Taxi driver said no, that he would be keeping the meter on and that was what he would charge them.
Woman argued and so taxi driver seeing a parked police car pulled up behind it and got the police to assist him. As the women left the car a bag of pills fell out of the back seat. The police officer saw them and the younger woman declared no knowledge of the pills. However, police officer coolly asked how many tablets in the bag and mother replied 250!
250 ecstasy tablets.
She then said that she was asked to deliver by a friend! And of course the taxi driver had the address of the friend that they were originally travelling too!
And all because mother didn’t want to pay full taxi fare.
