Back from the dead
By Matt Hall
A passenger in a Gloucester taxi leaned over to ask the driver a question and tapped him on the shoulder.
The driver screamed, lost control of the cab, nearly hit a bus, drove up over the curb, and stopped just inches from a large plate glass window.
For a few moments everything was silent in the cab, and then the still shaking driver said: "I'm sorry but you scared the daylights out of me."
The frightened passenger apologized to the driver and said he didn't realize a mere tap on the shoulder could frighten him so much.
The driver replied: "No, no, I'm sorry, it's entirely my fault. Today is my first day driving a taxi. I've been driving a hearse for the last 25 years."
