  1. I can't see how being a 'professional driver' makes much difference to care and attention with regard to driving. Everyone who holds a license should be capable of, and behave in a manner of driving safely.

     

    You mentioned twice that the person behind you had to brake harshly. That says to me that the 'guy' behind you, was driving too close to you (ok, the first included a swerve, but not the second). And you said you also had to stop really quickly at the Children's. So were you driving too close too? If you had already experienced this guy's erratic driving, then why were you so close to him that you had to brake 'really quickly'? Sounds like bad driving to me, or at least poor judgment.

     

    The only time that I have to brake sharply is when I'm not fully paying attention, or when I'm driving too close to someone. Admittedly, both are bad, and not ideal driving by me.

     

    Already been suggested. So no need to respond.

     

    A professional should be a better driver then? :confused: Or do you mean a driver who drives for a professional should drive better?

     

    Non-professional and professional drivers should be equally able to drive safely. If professional drivers are supposed to be good drivers, does that mean that non-profs are less than good drivers? If so, then most drivers should be off the road.

     

    Yeah, but in some jobs, you aren't sat alone in your own car with complete strangers that are potentially nutcases. Granted, most people aren't nutcases, but unless you've sat in your own car with people who you don't know and who are acting strangely, you can misunderstand what the word 'vulnerability' is.

     

    There is a high chance, I think, that there is a chance that you are speculating, with absolutely no grounds whatsoever.

     

    Probability wise, he didn't have some idiot in the car (in that, I agree with you), however, if drivers could predict with certainty that a person is an 'idiot', then they wouldn't pick them up in the first place.

     

    His customers could have been idiots.

     

    Getting paid for a job isn't synonymous with getting abuse for doing a job.

     

    You sound like you work for BT, or you are one of these robots that manage or supervise for major companies. Totally oblivious to real life and experience.

     

    I totally agree Valley.

     

     

    Any death figures due to accidents is obviously too high, but those figures seem quite low to me, considering 274 billion miles are covered by cars each year.

     

    re:link, though 'taxi' is defined on page 17, I can't see any figures in the tables that relate to taxi casualties. :confused:

     

    You clearly have far to much time on your hands 'ASH' :roll:

     

    I dont work for 'BT' I believe in good customer service if you are a paying customer.....simple as!!!!!!!!


  2. My point is it is directed at a specific kind of motorist. But lets look at it your way. Lets teach him a lesson he wont forget. Find him and take his hackney licence off him! That will show him. Put him out of work and make him wish he had not upset you! Pathetic.

     

    Think of it this way. If you in your employment somehow upset me, how would you like it if I had the power to get you sacked. Now that would be unfair wouldn't it? But there again your case would be different you are not a taxi driver. Well how about the assistant in GT news at Crosspool yesterday who completely ignored me because she was in a deep conversation with her friends? Get her sacked, ignorant cow. Then there's the sexist staff at the Lyceum. Yes they are! They only serve women. Sussed them out years ago so I take the wife to the bar with me, she always gets served. Sack the lot of them their useless! And as for the bar staff at the Showroom don't even bother giving them the pleasure of ignoring you, its faster to up the road to the Rutland Arms. Sack the lot of them and shut the bar down. Then there the Little Chef up the A1. Went in , sat down and got completely ignored so after half an hour of watching them serve people who came in after me I simply walked out and went further on the the O.K Diner. Sack that lot at the Little Chef. Teach them all a lesson they wont forget, upset me and they will be sacked!

     

    Oh! don't forget to shoot all the rude people visiting Meadowhall as well at Christmas. Crossing my path and not moving to one side as I approach them. Take them outside and machine gun them all. That will teach them a lesson as well. In fact anyone one who is having a bad day and expresses it. Teach them a big lesson so they wont show their feelings. Mind you if people can upset us at all and we can instantly seek revenge then perhaps that will make us happy again a life would be so beautiful.

     

    I am on the road all the time and get cut up, swore at, sign language etc. That's life, get on with it. But this is anti taxi driver. Yes he may be in a public job but not face to face but people talking to the back of his head while he's busy looking where he is going. There are people who simply don't like taxi drivers. Being in the presence of one brings an attitude out of people. You are in this shell of a cab with a person you don't like for the only reason he is a taxi driver even though he may not be doing anything wrong.

     

    No, there is only so much crap someone can take but in this drivers case maybe he should have had an early day

     

    Reminds me of the days at school. Upset a girl and she runs to teacher and the boy gets it!

     

    Hahahahahahahaha!!! Chill out mate!!! Dont think compaining will get him sacked!!! Get off your high horse............Its make me laugh though!!! Brightened up my morning that someone can get so hot headed over the OP just asking a simple question!!! Jesus :roll:


  3. I see there is an emphasis on him being a taxi driver. Not a white van driver or a driver of any other commercial vehicle but a hackney driver. Have you any idea what these drivers have to endure? The shear ignorance and selfishness they have to take off people is enough to send them over the edge.

     

    Give the man a break, he's probably had some sado in his cab, had a runner, someone spew up on his seats or take the usual verbal abuse. We all have our breaking points but pointing out that he is a hackney driver seems a bit predudice to me.

     

    Oh and by the way, maybe it was his customers in the cab what made him crack up!

     

    They have a job to do.....they get paid for it.....safety and pleasentness should always come first when dealing with paying customers.

     

    Think about it, we all deal with 'ignorant, selfish' people in most customer facing job, you still have to be professional though!!!

     

    The chances are hes didnt have some idiot in his cab, they just think they rule the roads!!!


  4. Dont get me started on hackney cab drivers!!! A lot of the drivers have recently come to this country, dont know the road, drive like maniacs and put their passengers at risk. I got one the other day, he ran a red light at rush hour and took me a very weird and long way home............I stopped him and as he couldnt speak much English just kept saying rude (when I wasnt even raising my voice but did when he told me I was rude)!!! He went on about Sat Nav and I tried to tell him not to rely on that as he would have many more 'rude' and unhappy customers!!!

     

    As for where you report it, surely if you phone the council they can help???


  5. IV JUST GOT ON X78 BUS THIS MORNING AND PAID WITH A £10 NOTE, THE DRIVER PASSES ME MY CHANGE BACK WHICH WAS £5 SOMETHING IN POUND COINS, SO COZ IV GOT NO ZIPS ON MY POCKETS I SEEN 2 £5 NOTES HANGING OUT OF HIS SHIRT POCKET, SO I ASKED HIM IF HE COULD SWAP MY COINS FOR ONE OF THE NOTES AND HE TURNED ROUND TO ME AND SAID NOOO, SO I ASKED HIM WHY NOT AND HE SAID COZ HE DIDN'T WANT TOO :rant:

     

    SOOO SHOULD I REPORT HIM ?

     

    WHAT WILL HAPPEN ?

     

    WILL IT BE WORTH IT ?

     

    Your lucky he changed the £10 to be honest. A lot of them would say they dont have change and not let you on. Count yourself lucky rather than moaning about it........jesus!!!


  6. What a helpful post. Nobody has a job? Sweeping statement or what! Are you implying that the OP is a chav who has not got a job? I live in the area and I think you will find that the crime is committed by a minority of scumbags, and that the majority are law abiding tax paying citizens:cool:

     

    Thank you for sticking up for me!!! Hehe!!! I have a good job and I have lived at Millhouses and Woodseats until I moved here (only because of the house prices as they were too high at Woodseats and my ex fiance lived nearby). Most of the people are lovely but then you get the little ***** that make an area awful!!! xXx


  7. I have lived at Herdings for about 5 years and until recently, not had any trouble.

     

    I got burgled about 3 months ago and they had clearly been watching the house as I was only out for an hour and it got totally ransacked :( I'm now very nervous and hate the way they have made me feel in my own home :rant:

     

    Then, a few days later they actually pinched the copper drain pipe from my next door neighbours which flooded their downstairs and then went onto rob the people 5 doors down!!!

     

    What makes it worse it the police actually know the names of the pair who are doing it (and have shared that info with me) but they still havent been caught EVEN THOUGH I have seen the little scroats still hanging around the area!!!

     

    Just makes me sick, I know Herdings isnt the best area in Sheffield but the lengths some people will go to for an extra few pounds is beyond me. I work full time and struggle to make ends meets and then they come along, rob you of your hard earned possessions and go on with their lives...............what goes around comes around!!! :rant:

     

    Sorry, just makes me so cross :(
