It rained constantly all day today and I was getting peoples favourite comment to taxi drivers “I bet you drivers love it when it rains like this”.
Well here’s one driver who doesn't, it’s no fun at all driving all day in the pouring rain you have to concentrate a heck of lot more to dodge all the people with umbrellas or hoods up who just walk out into the road.
And if it’s raining from early morning people especially the older folk just don't want to go out unless they have to and if they do they tend to be a lot more miserable than usual.
But if it starts to rain when everybody is already out then that’s ok we have a busy time then. Showers are a mixed blessing people call a cab and then it stops so they walk and we get lot of no pickups.
The only consolation is driving through deep puddles and splashing traffic wardens.
