Somehow this section did not publish in the last posting, so here it is again

Trace your roots here in Nassau St

Sometimes the best laid plans goes really wrong, through no real fault of anyone.
I had a pick-up to do and had set my alarm for 2 warnings. The first one went as I was dropping off a job
then in an instant another job came in.
Now I should have cancelled the new job as it had come in without me wanting it
BUT I figured that it  might be a shortie and it may be going in the same direction.
Boy was I wrong.Then everywhere the traffic was stopped and try as I could I couldn't get back.
Just as the traffic loosened out I got a call and a heap of abuse from my original booking.
She was right, somehow I should have cancelled the other call and looked after her .
But I cruised on towards her address anyhow, I was there in 10 minutes then as I was coming out of her address her new HailO cab turned into her street.

Then we were busy 4 dudes waved me down, I had a feeling.
"Have you booked another taxi?"I said.
"Yes we booked Uber"
My car is branded head to to toe for HailO.
"Don't wave down anyone when you have a booking. Its very busy now, by the way Uber has surge charging"
When it's busy you pay 3 or 5 times the rate.So off I went.
