That mean and nasty lady, Kathleen Doyle, put an end to handing out licences like confetti. Give it back to the Gardai, I say!

Well, if lads who can't speak ENGLISH can pass with Free Now I'm sure he'd stand a good, perhaps even better than average, chance.... and sending him to them saves you from mentoring him.


Foreign people tend to put the work in if they want something in my experience, where as Paddy usually doesn't and wants things easy and handed to him.
As Belker says, and I'm paraphrasing "Most Dubs should have CBA after their names as in Can't Be Arsed".

Not sure about Dubs but just Irish people in general, and in Irish myself by the way.

I have the odd fagarie where I won't pick up anyone with surnames for first names, 'cos their parents are pricks.

Or skobie parents who give their kids defendants names like Jayden, Kaiden, Laycie, Bradley, and most recently, Hunter in Darndale...just f**king walk! rofl

I gotta agree, but Korky gave me a scolding over it a few weeks ago..... So I took a job last Sunday night in the Northside (which I dislike) fer a Dylan, as it was going Southside (my fav working area) and as it was on card I stayed with it. Arrived, rang him, no answer, 2 drunks and a cripple on crutches banging on the cab window outside the pub, drove away, no fare. That's the end of me and the Hollywood names !

Cian, Kyle, Ryan, Dylan and Dean would be my fav not-go-to names by night, most usually I cancel on Cash app jobs.

If you cancel a freenow job when you turn up and see a load of knackers waiting for the taxi, what is the consequence? do you get a bad rating on freenow?

Your acceptance/completion rate goes down, not too sure how that effects your work status (as they don't tell us), but personally I couldn't give a Fiddlers.
As a night driver, if it's looks anyway dodgy to me then I'm gone !  Bollicks on their ratings !
