Uber driver was driving along when a pool trip came in and he did what all Uber drivers naturally do and slammed on his brakes and swerved into another lane almost causing a pile up and killing a driving instructor and his student so the instructor decided to teach him a lesson and got out of his car and punched the Uber driver in the face. Unfortunately our Uber didnt learn his lesson as he doesnt speak english and decides he will teach the driving instructor his own lesson but ended up getting run over. Thinking he will get compensation he reported it to Uber but they have deactivated his account and now he is dead.

And i hope you pass The knowledge and become a cabbie like you've always wanted to.
You do realise that not that many people want to become a Taxi driver? And PH is often a transient occupation? Sometimes the person is using it to supplement their FT job or support their studies, others are happy to work for an Operator that makes sure they earn their dosh every week and don't want the uncertainty of having to go out and look for work.

Anybody that wants to do the KoL good luck with it.

But driving a Taxi is not an easy job and to be honest has most of the same drawbacks as PH.

And to be perfectly blunt two of the best Cabbies I know are exploring other options, they will of course keep the GB as a back up, much as they kept PH or Courier work as a back up in years gone by.

The difference between them and perhaps other Cabbies considering leaving the trade is that they are both grafters, keep their Cabs immaculate and have great pride in being Taxi drivers. They aren't looking at other options from a purely financial position.

But let's be perfectly honest being self employed and doing one fare at a time is not as economically rewarding as running your own Company and driving a Taxi doesn't provide a decent Pension in many cases.

Please come to the Slice of Life coffe shop on Charterhouse St everyday between 8pm-10pm. You will understand what I'm talking about. We are talking about this everyday. KoL students are decreasing every other day 1by1

I know several curry house workers returning to their previous jobs so ph drivers are dropping off 1 by 1 aswell and the rest are looking for a way out. The only ones that still love this job are the newbs who think they're making allot of money, as Fabio would say " it's like turning on a tap and the money will come"

You don't realise that i was having a stab at cabbie2be as he failed The knowledge do you?
Not this bollocks again.

You can't fail the KoL.

But you can quit.

Some may well quit because they don't think they can complete it, but people also quit because they have other options or realise that driving a Taxi for 10hrs a day is not their idea of lifestyle improvement.

Not everybody measures their success in life by how much money they make and a perceived position on the totem pole of those who drive for a living.

Don't you think that your only motivation being financial gives very little, if any, job satisfaction?

A Plumber can see a job completed properly and safely, a Bricky can take pride in finishing a wall to a good standard for example.

A Carer is only qualified to NVQ Level but a Nurse qualified to Degree level but both get job satisfaction by providing good quality social care/nursing care to their patient/service user.

If money is your only focus/motivation then no wonder some Taxi drivers don't appear overly happy.

Bod, what our respected member Methos does understand is that he failed at stabbing.

We all have our reasons for actions, either times that r behind us or time coming.
