You loose and then you win

Trace your roots here in Nassau St
Coolock recycling plant

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 other 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, 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 booking.
She was right, somehow I should have cancelled the other call.
But I cruised on towards her address,I was there in 10 minutes then as I was coming out her address her
new HailO cab turned into her street.

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

Then this girl with soft voice arrived and you just knew she was a star.
