AQUA TAXI DRIVERS

I have lived in pompey for over 30 odd yrs and I've been out of the mob for 3 now. Although I'm a pretty placid, easy going sort of guy...what really Fucks me off is the number of complete Feckin arsholes who drive taxis (AQUA being the main one) they drive around like they own the roads, with complete disregard for other road users, be they car drivers, motorcycle riders or cyclists. i know most matelots off out on the piss in pompey probably use them as they are reasonably cheap ... but fuck me I detest the arrogant arsehole pompey fuck pig drivers. sorry rant over now !!!
Anyone else feel the same ???

Whilst I have not be down to Pommpy for years I do share the feeling with you that taxi drivers are for the most part are very bad drivers and rude and
they also think they own the road. But for me far worse are the two wheel
terrorist's (cyclists) now those people, who pay no road tax, insurance or take a driving test, They ride in the middle of the road do all manner of crazy and dangerous things and they do own the roads so they think. Oh thats better, outrage bus parked for the night. :D

Personally I would like to thank Aqua taxi's for their prompt and efficient service.

I ride a bike but I also have a car so I do all the things you have mentioned above. The reason I ride my bike rather than drive my car is it takes ten minutes less to get to work and saves £30 a week in petrol. Feel free to wave next time I zoom past you in a traffic jam :twisted: The people you should moan at are horse riders who let their horses shit all over the roads and don't clean it up (dog owners are penalised why not horse owners?), therefore making roads slippery in the wet which is dangerous to motorbikes and cars.

The taxi drivers from every town graduate from the same school dont they? My experience of Watford taxi drivers began with a journey back home from my sisters one saturday night, and when I asked how much it was, he asked "How much was it on the way there?" - I didnt get a f***ing taxi on the way there, you twat!

Quite Agree.

I have figured out why they never use direction indicators either - Apparently their first, solo, fare carries out the local time-honoured ritual of wrenching the indicator stalk from their steering column and ramming up the place sans sunshine.

This also accounts for their perpetual grumpiness.

:evil:

PS CityWide Cabs do cost more but invariably provide a safer and more courteous service.

I can't help it if I get irritated by idiots!

Don't worry I work on behalf of the DVLA towing people. The latest excuse I have had for not taxing a vehicle is "it's not my fault my tax is 6 months out of date, you didn't send me a reminder letter." The expiry date is written on the tax disc which should be on the windscreen of your car, does your mum still get you dressed in the morning? :twisted:

What the hell are you lot complaining about? You should try getting a mini cab in London. Cunts to a man. As for black cabbies, they might have the knowledge, but this doesn't include knowing when to shut the fuck up. I couldn't give two shits who you had in the cab yesterday mate, but guess what? I've just shat on your floor you irritating cab driving twat. They make me want to break things.

Not so dear chap. I'm as placid as a Cumbrian cabbie or indeed a steroid pumping whinging gwar.
