DON’T SCARE THE DRIVER


 

We have to accept whatever comes our way and what’s  important is to meet it with courage and with the best that we have to give.

                        Eleanor Rooseveldt

 And now, on a lighter note:

 DON’T SCARE THE DRIVER

A passenger was in a cab heading for the airport. He leaned over to ask the cabdriver a question and gently tapped him on the shoulder to get his attention.

 The driver screamed, lost control of the cab, nearly hit a bus, drove onto the curb and stopped inches from the edge of a ravine.

 For a few moments there was silence in the car, then the trembling driver said;

 “Are you okay sir? I’m so very sorry but you scared the daylights out of me.”

 The badly shaken passenger apologized to the driver saying; “I didn’t realize that a mere tap on your shoulder would   startle you so much.”

 “No,” he driver said. “I’m the one who should apologize. It’s entirely my fault. You see, today is my very first day drivig a cab. I’ve been driving a hearse for 25 years.”
