A woman is riding in a taxi and wants to ask the driver a question. She leans forward and taps the driver on the shoulder and says, “excuse me” very politely.
The cab driver jumps in his seat, nearly hits a bus, drives up on the curb and stops just before hitting a shop window.
The woman apologizes profusely, ” I’m so sorry! I didn’t think I’d scare you so bad!”
The cabby is shaken and says, ” no, I’m the one whose sorry. This is my first day on the job as a cab driver. For the last 20 years I’ve been driving a hearse.”
