    I used to be a taxi driver mate, I loved it at first, but you soon get cheesed off with picking dirty, smelly, illmannered dropkicks up, and that's before they've had a drink. I had to pack it in or I'd of bought a gun and shot the ****ers. So think long and hard before you jump in. BTW I had a few differnt cars for taxi driving and I found the octavia the best. lol.
