I’ve just got a taxi back from town. Now, is it just me, or can the journey with the taxi driver be one of the most awkward things you have to deal with in life?

You sit there, not knowing what to do with your hands and in silence. You rack your brain for things to say. The obvious choice is “Have you been busy?” and “What time are you on till?” (as mentioned by Peter Kay – it’s true!) But that just sounds sad and pathetic, besides which you don’t really give a shit.

So there you are, stuck in a traffic jam. Sitting in silence. You think “Please… please… just say something!” Your willing to enter conversation, it’s just that he needs to start it! If anyone knows 101 Things to Say To a Taxi Driver (or even just 1 thing!) then they could make a lot of money…

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
