I really HATE Derby week. Unfortunately it is just about the only thing Louisville has going for it. Actually I'm not that fond of Louisville either but that's another story.

The only time I enjoyed the weekend was the year I drove a cab. I made $1200 in two days. I bought a pager and cell phone and seldom worked the dispatch computer again. I lined up a permanent set of "personals", people who only used me for transportation. If a bartender gave me a good run I'd kick back $5. I got a lot of bar calls, which was both a good thing and a bad thing. Good thing-$20 or more run. Bad thing-they were drunk, yuck. I was also available at 4AM to take the pole dancers home. And no, I was never offered a trade, but I did get really good tips.

I had to quit though. After awhile not sleeping caught up and I had a real nervous breakdown. I was driving down the highway at 100 mph with my hands off the wheel. I came to my senses, dropped off the cab and got my deposit back. The next day I started seeing a psychiatrist. I had to spend 72 hours in what is euphemistically called "5th Floor South". Also clinically known as the hospital mental ward.

Well gee-that was deep, Sorry, didn't mean to go that far. What was I saying? Oh yeah, I really hate Derby week, except for the year I drove a cab.........

Depends on how one defines drunk LOL!! We were at a Vikings game, then walked to several night clubs and got lost trying while walking back to our hotel. We are not from the area so honest mistake!! Finally we gave up and got a cab and told the driver to take us to the Holiday Inn. He replied " are you serious?". Of course we were so the 4 of us hopped in. he drove 20 feet and turned into our hotel parking lot!!! He refused to charge us as we gave him a good laugh, but yet the 4 of us each took out a 20 dollar bill to tip him. The guy made 80 bucks to drive us less than 500 feet. LOL!!!!
We were not falling down stupid drunk, but we did have a good time!!!

Too bad there are so few taxi dispatchers' positions available. That could be healthier.
