The one that annoy's me is when the fare is 17 or 18 and they hand you a Score note saying; "That's Grand !" and then remain seated waiting fer their change !

Give them the evil eye.

the best one is when a fuckin haggler goes up and down the queue.
you tell them the cost of their destination and they scoff at you for having the common sense not to tolerate a cunt that can afford to pay the proper fare.

My new approach is to say pleasantly but firmly "THANKS VERY MUCH" and pocket the note !

I had a black dude in the cab last weekend coming from a rave in Cork South going home to Cork north, 3 extra pax so full Fiver extras, he was a nice lad and we chatted all the way home. At journey end the fare was 38.60 + 5.00, he asks; "How much ?" and I total the meter and tell him "43.60", he hands me a Nifty note saying; "That's grand" but he remains seated.
Eventually I reach in to my top pocket to get him a Fiver in change v e r y  s l o w l y, and then I ask him if he would like a printed receipt. He declines the receipt and then I say; "Just a sec, I'll root ya out a birra change", he remains seated while all his companions have left and very s l o w l y I root out his 1.50 in change and de miserable kount waits fer it !

Hungry feckers, taxi fares are expensive enough, you should be delighted with a €43.60 fare, and giving out about those taking 15%, not the hand that is feeding you. He wasn't miserable, he just shelled out on his own for a very good fare, not miserable in my book.

i hadda a black businessman dude once pay the fare to the button.
think it was €9.85 or something and the pennys came out.
i says don't worry about it and he kept fumbling.

+1.67... I'd bet the same men complaining are the very hungry cunts who haggle with insurance firms, drive extra yards to save a few coppers on fuel and stand at the bar counter waiting for change from a score for 3 pints of porter or wait for the front line checkout girl in Tesco to find a few coins change, etc, etc....

I was after doing me bit fer him Harry by explaining the term 'Kerry pike' where he lived to him in detail and the history of the meaning, I reckoned that I had earned my tip, but your right and I was happy enough with the fare.

At least she tried to pay you what you were owed. other tight people would be delighted they got 45 cent  worth of taxi fare for free.

Years ago I didn't carry anything smaller than 1 euro coins. Then I brought some millionaire businesses man home, fare was 9.80, he gave me 10 euro, I had to give him back a 1 euro coin and the tight prick took it. Now I carry 20 cent coins for guys like him.

I helped a family move once, it took 2 or 3 trips, my taxi was full of their possessions on all 3 trips. I helped them lug the stuff up stairs etc my arms were in bits for a day or 2 after it. thanks a million he says I will use you now anytime I need a taxi. That was about a year ago, I haven't seen him since.
