Flash Fiction #196


PHOTO PROMPT © Roger Bultot


Trump doesn’t govern well because he has poor advisors – not that he listens to anyone. The guys who really know how to run the country are all cutting hair, or driving taxis. The difference between a good haircut and a bad one, is two weeks. The difference between a calm cab ride and a butt-clencher, is prayer.

What was the DMV thinking, licensing these guys?? They drive like they were still in Beirut or Mumbai.

I’ll just cover my eyes and hope for the best. I picked a fine time to be an Atheist.

    Probably best if one wants to retain one’s sanity…

      You’re assuming that our hero was sane when he started. You’d have to be crazy to get in a New York, or San Francisco cab.
      I rely on public transit, the few times I need to go downtown Toronto. The subway is fun. There are no doors at the ends of the cars. You can see 200/250 feet, from end to end. It’s like being inside a giant worm, as it twists and turns its way. 🙂

  2. Sometimes it helps to have a god to lean on.
    And the NY subway IS fun (unless you leap onto the express by mistake).
    And love the London underground. Soooo good (outside of rush hour).


  3. Dear Archon,

    Oy is right.

    Butt clenching ride! Nice one. These drivers cannot be blamed on Trump though. New York cabbies were notorious long before Trump.

    When you say barber and taxi drivers are better equipped than cheeto and then slam the barber and taxi drivers, it doesn’t say much for cheeto does it. lol

      I would never dis a man with a razor in his hand. On the other hand…. taxi drivers will get you and your luggage from here to there – in a Hell of a hurry. Small-town folk, in the big city, might leave their sanity and/or lunch behind.
      Mac-and-cheese-head tRump should stop being a hazard to government and the economy, and just be a hazard at his golf course. 😯 🙄
