The Cabbie's First Day on the Job

One day a taxi passenger heading to the airport leaned over to ask the driver a question by gently tapping him on the shoulder.

The driver screamed, lost control of the cab, and nearly hit a bus before driving his cab over the curb and stopping just short of running into the fountain of a busy park.

For a few moments everything was quiet in the cab. Finally the shaking driver spoke up and asked his passenger, "Are you OK? I'm sorry, but you scared the hell out of me."

The equally shaken passenger apologized to the cabbie and said, "I didn't realize that a mere tap on the shoulder could startle someone so badly."

The cab driver replied, "No, no. I'm the one who is sorry; it's entirely my fault. You see, today is my first day on my new job as a taxi driver. I've been driving a hearse for the past 25 years."
