This is a question Mini Cabs From Hell

We've all taken a dodgy cab in our time. One guy asked me to give him a back-rub in exchange for letting me off the fare. I was like, "here's the cash mate." Another chappy claimed to be Paddy Patel - a child actor from UK TV series Tuckers Luck - he drove like a speed freak and regaled me with stories that "playing a black Irish boy. England wasn't ready for it." So go on - tell us your worst and we'll tell the world.

[edit: for those confused by the term mini-cab, London has two sorts of taxis: highly regulated, licensed and salt-of-the-earth black cabs that you see in films and a whole bunch of unlicensed, uninsured, random cars driven by nutters who aren't supposed to pick up from the street (you have to phone for them). They are universally rubbish]

In poorer days...
Friend and I get a minicab for the 5 miles home, normally, £12-15. We'd previously agreed that £10 would be much more favourable so plead to cap'n cab that this is all we have and he reluctantly agrees..
On arrival I proceed to blurt out to my mate that I've only got a £20 note so can he give the man his money.

Cunningly denied his £2 premium the driver blows his top and threatens to call the police. I say "go on then, they'll be exceedingly interested to find out how you managed to do a 20 minute run in just 7 minutes".
I'm sure he uttered the arabic for twunt as he ordered us from his cab, sans two quid extra....
