Default Heya!

Hi everyone!

Call me Cranky Cabbie. I am one of those long time lurkers who has finally plucked up the courage to join and share some stories. So, a bit about myself.

I currently work as a taxi driver in a small town in rural Australia, which I shall refer to as Bugarup. It's one of those places where the a pub on each corner, a gossip mill that can bend reality and a complete lack of rain. The population is roughly equal parts Caucasians and Aboriginal, who get along about 95% of the time. As for the other 5%, you'll see that in some of the stories I tell.

I've only been doing this for a few months. Before that I worked for a building firm. I probably won't share many tales from there, mostly because if I try, the post will quickly devolve into ranting that would make Fratching blush. Before that however, I worked on the front lines in a grocery store, run by a succession of complete morons. There I covered just about every post you could care to name at one time or another, so there are plenty of repressed memories of SC's past there.

So there we are. See you around the forums!

(Oddly enough I'm not a fan of the southern accent and eternally gratefully I don't have one. I prefer more exotic accents like European, Asian, Middle Eastern, and African accents just for examples. As long as I can understand you I'll flail over your accent. :P)
