Please Don’t OD in my Back Seat

Please Don’t OD in my Back Seat

About a month ago I picked up a gal Pax from a house party who smelled of booze. She appeared really spaced and it seemed that maybe more then booze was in her system. She slurred the coordinates of her Hollywood location as she passed out in my back seat. As I drove over the hill I could hear her body flop around the back in her inebriated state. I asked her a couple of times if she was ok and she finally answering “Ya”. Read More >>

Picking Up Corporate People

Picking Up Corporate People

There is always a common theme among pairs of executive corporate folks. They appear stressed, fearful and the conversation is often focused on office politics and who is trying to double cross them. They are pissed off at someone. Their energy and expression is exhausting. They are deeply involved in their rants trying to solve what will/may happen. The convo usually includes getting much needed drinks somewhere later. Read More >>

Hooker or Daughter?

Hooker or Daughter?

I picked up an older distinguished gentleman in his late 50’s with a sultry, attractive, and twenty something gal from a nice hotel in Century City. They where headed to a swanky, expensive and slick Malibu restaurant and bar frequented by trendies carrying some dough. At first I thought this was an expensive escort, but after further observation, it came to me that it may be a father and daughter relationship. He was giving her father knows best advice such as: “You really shouldn’t be talking to that person” “The word is pronounced like this” and she replied “You are not to judge me”. She was chewing gum in the back seat all pouted up and flustered while the older gentleman kept scolding her about something I could not make out. As their conversation continued they argued more.Read More >>

No, I did not get Ebola

I think the Ebola thing is blown way out proportion. Yes, I hope I don’t get it. No, I am not worried! With that being said I was listening to the news about how Ebola could wipe out the face of the earth on AM news radio. I simultaneously was picking up a Pax at a fancy party full of people from Africa. Some were dressed in tuxes and very fancy dresses and others wore more traditional African clothes. Some may have even been from West Africa? Who knows?  A happy couple entered my ride, a 30 something African with his African American date. We made small talk and joked a bit. He let me know he was in love with the girl he was with. She was equally enamored of him. She explained to me she was the only American born at the party. As the chit chat continued (Drum Roll Please)….he coughed several times. Yes, like three or maybe even four times….and guess what??? I did not wake up with my eyes bleeding. I did not catch Ebola. I’m alive to tell the tale.  I hope you all sense my humor and where I am going with this rant. Read More
