    Jimbo,

    stop wearing 3K shoes and 1K shirts.

    I am sure this never happened to Bryant and his hippies shirts.

    Lol thanks TB

    I'm a banana, yellow outside and white inside. Not fluent in Canto by a long mile but enough to get by and make it clear to the taxi driver I was willing to get him change.

    If i know i don't have the change, i always ask the driver if he has, if not, then i get out and get another taxi. or, just go into a shop and buy a bottle of water.

    Honestly, taxi drivers have resisted attempts to make them take credit cards, octopus, maxim vouchers, bloody anything. If it is for the good of the customer, they are against it.

    They are conducting a business in a car that cost thousands, with a licence that costs millions and can be assed to have a float of $500. Imbeciles. When offered oral sex, they turn it down. Who here has the slightest sympathy for them? About time they were required to have the HK Knowledge, no permit until you know every road in Hong Kong, Kowloon, New Territories and Islands. Get rid of the dashboard of phones, no ones impressed and you should be concentrating on your driving whilst I'm hiring you, not carrying on a sodding sidline business or placing a bet. Take a shower before you clock on and wear a collar and tie too.

    This thread has given me an idea. I will enter a taxi armed with a 500 note. If he tries any funny business I will whip out a bag of 200 ten cents coins. Mwahahahahha, that'll show him.

    OK I realise i have a very odd sense of humour.

    Great ideas! Then they can start charging 5-10 times more as in London for example.

    Why is the idea of taking a shower and wearing clean clothes so hideous to you? I don't think many people would disagree that basic personal hygiene is a good idea, especially in a "developed" country with hot, humid weather..... doubly so when you're in a small, sealed box with the driver.
