Tap on the Shoulder

  • A true story from the pages of the  Manchester Evening News:

    Last Wednesday a passenger   in a taxi heading for Salford station leaned
    over to  ask the driver 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   up
    over the curb and stopped just inches from a large  plate window.
    For a few moments everything was silent in the cab. Then, the shaking
    driver said "are you OK?    I'm so sorry, but you scared the daylights out of me."
    The badly shaken passenger   apologized to the driver and said, "I didn't
    realize that a mere tap on the shoulder would startle someone so  badly."
    The driver replied, "No, no, I'm the one   who is sorry, it's entirely my
    fault. Today is my very first day driving a cab.
    I've been driving a hearse for 25 years."
