no, but I did get a lift from a taxi driver that was a sex tourist about 2 weeks ago. I had to endure 90 minutes in the early hours of the morning of sordid and frankly unnecessary revelations from a complete stranger - not a great journey I must admit. Strange thing was that his persona was in no way lecherous and he didn't consider this 'hobby' to be a big deal.

He did insist that he'd never marry one of his thai poppets though. As it is, he said, they will worship you night and day in thailand, the way its meant to be. Get them over here and they become westernised - lazy, overweight, selfish etc.

Ultimately I couldn't help but feel pity for such a lonely and otherwise personable man but his banter still made me feel nauseous


where were you going in a taxi for 90 minutes? must have cost a fortune.

from carlisle to glasgow. Virgin Rail cocked up and sold me a ticket for a train that didn't exist, so they paid for a cab from Carlisle onwards Rolling Eyes

I had the misfortune to get a cab home with an equally awfull driver post optimo recently. When I got in and gave my address, he drove off then asked why i hadn't confirmed my name (I called a cab to pick me up from Jury's Inn), saying that he could be anyone and could rape me! He then ranted about how women expected preferential treatment and other misogenistic rantings, very odd and I felt sooo uncomfortable. As I was a little sparkled, I decided just to keep quiet and not disagree and get home as quick as possible. Thought about reporting him to the cab company but wondered what good it would do as it would be my word against his.
