Weekend Randoms


Sitting outside of Studio 54 observing two young women helping their guy friend get into my cab. They got him in the front seat and were asking him "do you have money to pay for this" and "where do you live", the guy looked just fucked but was in a good state of mind of just being fucked up and having a good time for all I could tell. He could not remember where he lived and I was more than willing to get this guy home if I was given an exact address to go on.

While these girls were going through this guys pockets to help him out and help me out at least find where he lives a local street vendor approached my car and said to me not to take this guy anywhere and that an ambulance was on the way for him. Ok whatever. Less than a minute later the ambulance pulled up beside my cab and the EMT's came to the guys door. He could not stand on his own and he had to be carried, with the help of his two girlfriends, by the EMT's into the back of the ambulance, with a stop on the bumper to check his vitals.

While this is happeneing this random dude comes up to my cab and starts telling me how Studio 54 is the devil and it needs to burn. I didn't immediately understand his motivation and I handed him my lighter and said something to the effect of "make it happen". He declined the lighter and kept going on about the devil and Studio's customers basically, he took a picture of me. Fuck that I was suprised I almost busted out my camera and said "you like being filmed you fuck?" I didn't. At first I thought he was just a street bum I hadn't seen before because he had a small bag of what appeared to be empty cans although I can not be certain. He then mentioned he was out on a mission and I think he was morman or hutterite or something/

What possesses someone to go on a mission at two am and start preaching to people about gods values or whatever outside of Studio 54. Maybe a good place to start I guess. Just seemed odd.

..................................................................................................................................................................

Flagged a guy at Boss Hoggs and another cab driver sent me a text saying "that guy is a puker for sure", I saw his buddy help him in the cab and I asked if they were alright, the drunkest of the two said "I am not going to puke I am cool" or whatever the fuck he said, I start driving on the highway out to Coaldale where they wanted to go and all of a sudden without any warning I hear "whoooaaaaa arhh whoaaaa".  I knew he was fucking puking back there and I didn't say anything because I was on the highway, I got all the way to 30th street before I could safely pull over and this guy started puking out the door.

The damage was done he leaned over his friend and puked on his friends shoes and all over my floor mats and back seat you fucking prick. Hey shit happens I was pissed but I am reasonable and we worked it out and I wasn't a prick about it but I should have been because the taxi company has been giving me the same car now for a week and it smells like puke even after a serious cleaning. It was mostly liquid so harder to clean maybe, just glad pukers are rare (at least puking without saying pull over or stop) the fucking prick just let his stomach loose, glad it wasnt in my own car lol.

.................................................................................................................................................................

Flagged two guys and two gals from I can't even remember and it was just awesome from the get go I like these random trips. The guy in the front said to the effect "lets just cruise around, maybe drink some beverages and try to find some hookers", not sure if that is what he said exactly but that is what they wanted. All four of them were cool with it. Knowing full well no hooker would get into a cab full of people I took them to their hotel first so they could get some beverages to drink while we cruised around.

So we get the beverages from the hotel and they offer me one and I say sure why the fuck not, so I am sipping on my beverage while driving these folks from Ontario around looking for prostitutes basically, we encountered three that night, all were pretty pissed with 21 year old buddy in the front seat, we were cruising around and I took them down by the river for a piss fest or what not. A truck pulled in beside us and they got out and started chatting with them. I got out also and the guy in the truck was worried I was going to phone the police on him so I produced a beverage and a smoke and it was all good.

So my taxi full of white people is now interacting with a truck full of natives and to make a long story short everyone was getting along until one of the girls in the truck called a girl with me a white trashy whore or what not and it was starting to escalate so we just went our seperate ways. I knew the one girl in the truck. R like the bird, lol.

Ended up saying that the ride was over eventually and that I was taking them back to the hotel because the guy in the front was starting to fade a bit. He wanted to go to Tim Hortons on Scenic so I took them all there and he ordered a bagal, nothing more, got out of the cab (this is when I noticed he had pissed himself and on my seat but not too bad. He left his beverage on my dash and I asked him to grab it as we left Tim Hortons to go to the Super 8, he was passing out quick and I grabbed the beverage out of his hand and he kinda woke up and I said your beverage is done I am taking you home.

We get back to the hotel after fucking with three hookers that he encountered (I feel bad I want my customers to be able to find hookers and this guy was actually no different than another hooker trip but he didn't actually want to fuck them and his friends were in the back seat.

Whatever he paid me $125 for the stint.

And the same guy flagged me down to do the exact same thing the following week, another $125 fare. This time one street person we encountered was walking downtown after 3am, I pulled up to her and didn't think she was a hooker because she relied on a cane to walk and was no spring chicken..

So the guy started talking to this person and asks about the cane, she says that it is a musical instrument and that it isn't really a cane, he asks her to play the cane and she put the bottom of her cane up to her mouth and proceeded to attempt to play it like a flute, it wasn't working and then she said she uses the cane as a pipe to smoke crack, really odd conversation.

..................................................................................................................................................................

The gamblaholic crack head fuck..................I feel bad for this one........... Got a call from dispatch to pick up a fare at a local bar so I arrive and I walk inside and a woman was sitting there and I knew her from years prior. I take her home and she is all friently friendly and so was I, I liked her.

So we get to her house and I see a complete change of additude she gets what she needs to get and now she wants to go somewhere else and does't know where but that I should decide. Jesus just fucking tell me where YOU want to go, anyway...it was either the Casino Lethbridge or Bully's, I convince her somewhat to go to the Flamingo.

We arrive and she asks me to come in with her and that she was going to pay me when we got inside.

I was ok with it and walked in with her. She went to the ATM machine and took out cash. She gave me the twenty for the fifteen dollar fare and asked me to buy her a Canadian. I did and ordered myself a Coke.

I walked back over and gave her the Canadian and she was already fast at pace gambling. I asked her to step away from the machine to talk to me right after that. She would not leave her machine and needed to play her VLT keno and she was just sure she was going to win, she had her system and to her it was foolproof, It was not foolproof. She did win some but just kept putting 20 after 20 in different machines thinking she was playinjg the system and beating it. She was playing multiple machines at once, putting her reserved sign on one machine and finding another and another to put money in.

She did win some money and I was cashing in her tickets for her and giving her the money for her supposed winnings, one thing I dont think she understood was how much money she was actually putting in the machine.

I have never ever seen such a person facing what she is facing just spending money like she was. She gave a random person playing a VLT machine 20 dollar bills and stopped someone from paying their interact tab and she paid for their entire tab, literally just throwing money around.Whatever she can do what she wants.

I finally convinced her to stop gambling and for me to take her home, well I guess her next stop was to a crack house so she could get some rock and get high, I let her use my phone to call the dealer.

So I dropped her off at her crack dealer's house. I had to ask her for the cab fare and she thought she had already paid me for the second trip (around ten bucks). I was pretty glad to have gotten rid of her and felt pretty bad for her because she thought she was up like $500 dollars from her vlt winnings but in reality she probably lost $300.

She called me later the same night because her crack dealer had my cell number to ask me to lend her money. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? I did not lend her any money because apparantly she reached her limit for the day.

I have never observed someone with such a passion for gambling it was like pure extasy for her to hit any of her keno numbers. I feel bad for her good luck getting custody of your child back.

...........................................................................................................................................................

Got sent for a couple downtown and it was raining. I pull up and a young man and woman get in the cab, I later learned that the girl was 14 and the guy probably around the same age. So this 14 year old girl started telling me how she got in her first fight in her life and that it started a couple years ago with this other girl thinking the girl in my cab was a whore and what not.

So I guess they were at a house and the other girl wanted to fight the girl in my cab and was calling her a whore and the girl in my cab said she had enough and started fighting with this other girl. She said she punched her 3 times in the face and broke the other girls nose and got kicked out of her residence because of the fight and has to attend court on assault charges. She told me how she was going to hit up a wicked party the next day and smoke week and get drunk and that she has had two lesbian girlfriends.

I thought it was a pretty cool trip just wierd hearing all that shit out of 14 years old girls mouth.
