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]

Mini cab in Cambridge
Chinese guy, looking well tense as three scruffy student hippies fall into his cab. He looks edgy, I tell him [read in authentic chinese accent] "it's ok, we've got the money". He proceeds to drive, explaining "no, it's not young people I worry about, it's old bastards! people about 40/50 who should know much better!". "Last week this guy had me drive him straight to his house and he just ran off! I saw him go in, and I wanted to go back and stick a petrol soaked rag in his letterbox and light it!"

"Yeah, I said, that's really rude!"

"Yes! I went back, and put it in but I didn't light it, because when I got to the door I could hear his children inside".

We paid him, plus tip. Fucking nutter.
