True Story


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


get his attention.

The driver screamed, lost control of the cab, nearly hit a bus, drove


over the curb and stopped just inches from a large plate window.

For a few moments everything was silent in the cab. Then, the shaking

driver said "are you OK? I'm so sorry, but you scared the daylights out



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.

I've been driving a hearse for 25 years." :rofl:


A Hearse for those wondering is a Vehicle for carrying a deceased person to the Church.
