I’m so outspoken!

Well, I’ve walked myself into it now! I got a call this afternoon from a girl at irish guide dogs. She asked me if they can use photos of me and nitro, for a campaign they are doing, targeting taxi drivers, the campaign is for the transport authority, to let taxi drivers know that they cant refuse guide dogs, that its actually against the law for them to refuse a blind person and their dog!

I gave her permission to use my photo, but then I decided to tell her about my negative experiences with a taxi firm I use, how some drivers refuse to pick me up, and their excuse is that they dont want to deal with dog hair!

Hello? I brush my dog every day! But he still sheds! Its what dogs do for fuck sake.

Anyway, on hearing my story, she said to me, well, we’re actually looking for a negative experience from a service user, can I use yours?

So I guess my story is now being broadcast to hundreds of taxi drivers across the country! Talk about being a voice for change! If this doesnt change something, then I dont know what will!

I’m happy to help, though.

Blooper!

I’m such a featherbrain!

I got a taxi home from college. The driver who brought me home also brought me to college. I know him well.

We were chatting on the way home. His phone rang and he started talking to someone. We got to my house and I hopped out of the car.

He walked me into my front door. And what did I do? I forgot to pay him!

I rang the base but the base operator said he had gone on another job. And he couldn’t come back. So he got no money! I will give it to him when I next see him. But that might be a week or two from today.

God what an idiot! I was so busy chatting! It simply went out of my head, but you’d think you’d remember ya gotta pay the driver wouldn’t you?

lol!
