Doh!

We had reached the end of the cab ride and it was time to extract the fare. "Two thirty please" I asked and waited patiently to be paid. "Sorry what did you say" said my fare, I repeated "two thirty." "You should see a dentist then" my fare replied handing me some cash and quickly getting out. I'm afraid to say that it was a full five minutes before the joke suddenly dawned on me, doh!

My friend Brian absolutely LIVES for this joke, and drags it out every time those words are uttered. Still, I smile every time.

I presume you meant £2.30. Did you take someone across the street?

Patient: How much to have this tooth pulled? Dentist: $90.00. Patient: $90.00 for just a few minutes work??? Dentist: I can extract it very slowly if you like.

Bill: some one once said that your sometimes about as welcome as your namesake.

Cabbie x: well they do say that the old ones are the best.

Dogbait: Yes £2.30p and it was a short half mile or so hop. But those are the ones we like in and out quick and not leaving the town centre, so hopefully straight on to the next one. Our outfit uses a bit of psychology, we have a low start rate but the meter flag fall is earlier. It works every time all folk look at is the start price.
