Glasgow Taxi Drivers.

Taxi drivers in Glasgow are probably no worse than in any other large city - if you happen to have insufficient funds.
Gerry from Paisley had been out in Glasgow having a few beers and had missed the last train home.
With no money left to pay for his journey, he approached the taxi rank at Central Station hoping his patter and a sympathetic driver would get him home. The driver of the only taxi in the rank listened to his story but flat refused to take him home without payment up front. Gerry pleaded, but it was to no avail, the taxi driver cursed and gestured him away.

Gerry walked home to Paisley that night.

Some weeks later, Gerry was again out on Glasgow town, and again missed the last train home to Paisley. He made his way to the dreaded taxi rank in Central Station, and there, second in the rank, was the same driver that refused him two weeks ago.
This time however, Gerry had learned a lesson and had kept some money to pay for his journey.
Gerry approached the first taxi in the rank. He said to the driver, "Look, I don't have any money left and I need to get to Paisley. I'll give you a blow job if you take me". The shocked driver looked at him with incredulous eyes, "Get outta here ya dirty bastard"
"Ya filthy dirty bastard, feck off"

Gerry fecked off to the second taxi in the rank, the driver who had refused him two weeks ago. "Oh it's you again" said the driver,
"What's the matter with him?" gesturing toward the first taxi in the rank. "I don't know" said Gerry, "He's not in a good mood",
"Will you take me to Paisley?"
The driver said "Do you have money this time?"
Gerry said "Sure, no problem, I can pay this time"
The driver said "Okay then, get in"

Gerry turns to face the driver of the first taxi in the rank who has been watching and proceeds to give him a big smile
and the two thumbs up sign.
