Post #700 on HP2

I drove the cab tonight as well, my first double shift weekend in a while. I drew the short straw too, working right through till 6am, a 12 hour shift , the last hour of which I slept. Fortunately I didn't have any customers at the time. It was a very busy night, two trips to Bunker Bay, 1 to Cowaramup and another to Dunsborough, which sadly produced my first "Runner", that's taxi jargon for people running off without paying their fare. It wouldn't have been so bad if the fare hadn't been worth $43!! Despite this it was a profitable night, helped by the fact I got about $50 in tips, way more than normal.

The sun is up and so am I, but not for much longer, my bed and toasty electric blanket awake!
