Ted Morley had worked as a cab driver for around twenty years. Had been there and done that as far as the job was concerned,
It was a dismal wet Tuesday evening when he entered the office to sign in for the night. As usual Sally was on the switchboard.
“Hiya Ted! All set for another devastating night” and this was to be the understatement of the year, as Ted was to find out. “Oh Hello Sally love you ok?” “Yer, there’s a message from the boss by the way” “And what’s that my girl?” “ He says you should have a slow night being Tuesday so can you stay on the Candiss Road rank and see what turns up from there.”
Ted was in no rush to get out there because of the weather, so a few goes on the Fruit Machine and a strong coffee was the order of the night. Sally stirred him from his second hold on the lemons for another two pound win. Call for the Mecca Bingo Hall to pick up Loopy Lou (Louise Fernly) the town’s bingo oddball who never seemed to lose.
After that call he went onto the Candiss road rank and awaited his next fare as instructed. The weather had not eased off any and it looked like it was going to be a very slow evening. About an hour had passed when something made him turn around and glance through the streaky wet back window. He thought he could see someone running towards his cab waving its arms like hell.
Before he knew it, the cab door was shut as fast as it had opened “The Station please as quick as you can”, Oh God! One of them scousers thought Ted. As he looked in his mirror he could see it was a woman very wet and totally naked. “ Are you ok?” enquired Ted “F**k off,” “Ok, Ok well at least tell me the name for the booking” “Its Zoe” a little way down the road it occurred to Ted that this girl was the barmaid at the Irish Pub in the Town Centre but what the hell was she doing in this state, but there you go he thought it takes all sorts to make the world go round.
“ Look love I cannot exactly not notice that your naked so I was wondering how you was going to pay the fare” nodding slowly Zoe spreads her legs and puts her feet up on the back of the front seat. Zoe smiles at Ted and says “ Does that answer your question?”
“ F**king Hell” cries Ted “ Have you got anything smaller?.
