We have had a couple of social functions since our last update – some of the pictures are attached for you to look at. More of these will be on our new website that is in development.
We have been collecting stories from our drivers, so you can see what they deal with on a daily basis. Some are funny, some are shocking and some are heart warming. We have three for you to start with, but keep watching for more updates.
“I was parked on a taxi rank and a man ran into the side of my cab and then claimed I had run him over. After some to-ing and fro-ing, we established that I had been parked for over 10 minutes and that the man was looking for a compensation payment. Needless to say, he didnt get a payout!”
“I picked a customer up from Salisbury station one evening and took him to Bemerton Heath. He paid me with a £50 note and then gave me a VCR/DVD player – claiming he had won the pools and wanted to share his good fortune. I was obviously over the moon, until I received a visit from the police the next morning. The man had escaped from a low security prison, burgled his ex-wife, stealing her cash card and VCR/DVD player. Obviously I returned the ill-gotten gains!”
“I was driving from a pub on the Wilton Road to South Newton with two drunk men in the car. One of the men decided he was going to urinate in the footwell of the vehicle. I stopped the car and asked what he thought he was doing and before I knew it, the passenger in the front seat attacked me, punching me in the face. I called the police and eventually received compensation. The drunk men got community service for their actions.”
Below are a couple of pictures from our Christmas Party, held in January and a couple from our archery day held in February.
