Old Woof Batching.
Grabbed a cab for Melbourne airport yesterday, about 20 klicks from where we live, for Mrs Woof to start her Eastern Europe holiday via Singapore and Moscow. Old Woof, he looks after the neurotic cat.
'Good day mate, much of your shift to go' to grumpy cabby------ no reply.
Down the track a bit I say 'you sound like Italian maybe Greek ' ...............you Australian? "Nah Samoan".....'don't look it.'


He chilled out after a while explaining that some dudes set up drivers for a robbing and check how much their kitty might contain. Mrs Woof looks a bit like Bonnie maybe? He went on for the rest of the trip about 'crazy passengers", dole bludgers, road ragers, truckies etc, inviting me to a taxi driver rally today Sat (e.s.t)

Well got the old girl to the airport; one minute to exit cab and pay before security moves the taxi on. Just as well I didn't drive. Don't think I'll ever come to the U.S; imagine taxi drivers worse and LA Int indescribable.

Ah well gotta feed the cat, and buy some paper plates. Least I can turn the porn up for three weeks Thumbsup

So that's why my husband never minded when I went on business trips! Smile

Yer just jealous you don't have a Jetson port. Don't be knockin LAX. You can still make out the old "U" drive from the 50's and 60's if ya look. The first time I ever took off from there, I thought, "hmm, that's a big lake down there". OMG.

Not that I know of. I've never done one from LAX. I think it's more of a game of who goes where. (If they don't like your looks they "don't go there"). Always heard horror stories about the 405. People are actually polite, and let me change lanes. etc, etc. LA is very easy to get around in. The grid is very understandable. One way to the beaches ! 405/110 bla bla. I'm the "terror of Colorado Boulevard". Actually LAX is usually not necessary. Burbank, and Orange Cty are good alternatives.
