A taxi passenger tapped the driver on the shoulder to ask him a question.
The driver screamed, lost control of the car, nearly hit a bus, went up on the sidewalk, and stopped inches from a shop window.
For a second, everything went quietly in the cab, then the driver said, “Look, friend, don’t ever do that again. You scared the daylights out of me!”
The passenger apologised and said he didn’t realise that a little tap could scare him so much.
The driver replied, “Sorry, it’s not your fault. Today is my first day as a cab driver – I’ve been driving a hearse for the last 25 years.”
