I guess he could have used a cab to get back home.
2003-03-12 01:19:59 PM  
Cabbie: "Where you headin pal..."
Allen: "Cap Cod" (screetching brakes)
Cabbie: "That's 200 miles pal - you got enough money?!"
Allen: "Does this look like enough?" (cab takes off)
2003-03-12 01:22:45 PM  
Bangor? Damn near killed her.

Thank you, thank you very much.
2003-03-12 01:45:02 PM  
He didn't even get the money up front.
2003-03-12 02:34:01 PM  
Just kill her.
2003-03-12 02:34:20 PM  
Sackville. Bangor.

A set of tire tracks showed Hill's white 1994 Lincoln, with the taxi roof light still on top, had driven out on to the highway heading north.

How the fark did the tire tracks reveal the light was still on the roof?!?
2003-03-12 02:35:51 PM  
hmmm.. can we say hooker?
2003-03-12 02:36:00 PM  
Bump Splash?
2003-03-12 02:37:11 PM  
18 year old? Bangor? Guess it's legal.
2003-03-12 02:38:07 PM  
This story is just too weird. Amusing as hell though.
2003-03-12 02:38:27 PM  
"He was getting some teasing from some of the men who sit around here and drink coffee," said Ivah Daggett, who owns the store.

They've got room to talk...

"It's the first long trip I've had. And you know what? It's going to be the last, unless they put the cash on the dash."

I just thought this was a very cabbiesque thing to say.

"gas, grass or ass, no one rides for free!"
2003-03-12 02:40:11 PM  
Even more amusing:

Would you like to see a four-day school week for students in your area?

2003-03-12 02:40:48 PM  
I'd have been very suspicious if anyone offered me an almost $900 cab fair. I'd wonder why she didn't just fly. Or take a bus. It would have cost a heck of alot less.
2003-03-12 02:41:56 PM  
Hmm, wonder why the man wanted the woman up there. Sounds like a strung-out hooker to me.

Cash on the dash! (THAT is the funny!)
2003-03-12 02:43:26 PM  
I wonder why an 18 year old girl was visiting a "highly respectable gentleman" and HE didn't drive her home.
2003-03-12 02:43:30 PM  
Little known fact: Halifax cabbies always keep the roof light on, even if they have a fare.
2003-03-12 02:43:35 PM  
I've got a feeling that "quite respectable" man isn't really all that respectable...
2003-03-12 02:44:09 PM  

Pay no attention to that. That idea's been on and off for schools since I was in Junior High. Would be sweet though.

Halifax cabs are not company cars, so there's no logos or anything, just the signs on top. And bylaws state that a taxicar has to have enough passenger room in the back. That's why the guy was driving a Lincoln Towncar.
2003-03-12 02:44:11 PM  
Damn!!! Too late to get in a good "Bangor" joke!!!

That's what I get for going to lunch.
2003-03-12 02:44:32 PM  

Perhaps the man paying was trying to ensure this little tart went where she was supposed to go.

Can you say pizzimp? I mean,really, what does a cabby regard as a "respectable businessman".
2003-03-12 02:45:55 PM  
Bangor? Damn near killed her

Jamaica? No, I coaxed her.
2003-03-12 02:46:17 PM  
"hmmm.. can we say hooker?"

My thoughts exactly. A respectable man indeed...
2003-03-12 02:46:36 PM  
"...put the cash on the dash"

Or, as Cochran would say, "If you see no green, you must flee the scene"
2003-03-12 02:47:07 PM  
The trip was $880 canadian, which is about a buck fifty in real money.
2003-03-12 02:47:19 PM  
I learned my first bit of cabbie lingo today!

Cash on the dash.... oooh yeah....
2003-03-12 02:48:20 PM  
"Don't see the bills? Then head for the hills."
2003-03-12 02:49:04 PM  
God bless those Canadians - they're so damn trusting!
2003-03-12 02:50:01 PM  
I don't even see the beginnings of a flame war in this.
2003-03-12 02:50:22 PM  
"I'd never let a woman take my cab. If she tried anything, i'd be all, hey, get your biatchass back in the kitchen, and make me some pie."
2003-03-12 02:50:35 PM  
Cash on the Dash - I so have to work that into a conversation at some point - that is too good not to use.
2003-03-12 02:51:06 PM  
Show me some Lincolns or you're getting some stinkins'

I got nothin.
2003-03-12 02:51:11 PM  
BillDaryll I just put your cookie in the mail.

2003-03-12 02:52:45 PM  

That is all.
2003-03-12 02:53:15 PM  

I think you already know.
Very respectable gentleman = Sugar Daddy
He didnt use the bus cuz he'd look cheap to his little tart, and he doesn't want an airplane ticket on his credit card in case his wife sees it.

2003-03-12 02:54:45 PM  
"Show me some scrilla, or you'll be left to chill-a"

2003-03-12 02:54:46 PM  
Now correct me if I'm wrong here, but since the concensus is that this young lady was most likely a prostitute, doesn't that give another meaning to the phrase "cash on the dash"?
2003-03-12 02:55:07 PM  
The trip was $880 canadian, which is about a buck fifty in real money.
What, British pounds?

2003-03-12 02:55:29 PM  
Wh0mprat, I'm with you on that one...
2003-03-12 02:55:40 PM  
If not "cash on the dash", make sure to keep the funk in the trunk.
2003-03-12 02:56:04 PM  
or would that be "cash for the gash"

/totally awful, apologies to my many female fans.
2003-03-12 02:56:09 PM  
"Show me the bread, or hitch hike instead"

/Reeealllly got nuthin'
2003-03-12 02:56:30 PM  
Fury211 I believe that would be a CHICKEN POT PAY!
2003-03-12 02:56:47 PM  

If y'aint got the loon, you don't get no poon
2003-03-12 02:56:48 PM  
Oh, come on, Capn - you can do better than that.
2003-03-12 02:56:54 PM  
"Well I would, but I have this splitting headache."

. . . and now you know the rest of the story.
2003-03-12 02:57:15 PM  
NICU8697...somebody was bound to say it sooner or later.
