This last week or so I have picked up quite a few short jobs were the fare worked out at £2.30 and on some of these occasions when I said "£2.30 please".
The passengers looked at me and said, "Go and see a dentist then".
It didn't sink in with me at first until one fare seeing my baffled expression said "What time does a china man go to the dentist?”
Doh... and then is hit me! Why am I so daft sometimes eh?
