I picked up a girl and 2 guys from in front of the Barrel Room last night. Pretty people. Girl was a bit angry, she got up front with me. From the conversation I got that they were friends, not significants and out for her 27th bday. It was a pretty long ride considering we only went about 5 miles from where I picked them up, but that could be because the girl didn't shut up a'tall the whole ride and all she did was bitch and whine.
Basically her complaints were: "Oh my God I'm OLD. I might as well be dead. I don't know what's wrong w/my douchebag friends. No one loves me any longer. No one listens to me any more. All my friends want to stab me in the neck w/a knife. WTF is wrong w/them?" Different variations of the same stuff. It got very annoying, very fast. She decided to bring me into the conversation ...
Annoying Little Bitch: Why are my douchebag friends such assholes?
Me: Maybe it's 'cause you're calling them 'douchebags'. Wouldn't that annoy you? I've heard you say it like, 6 times in the last 2 minutes and I'm pretty annoyed.
She stopped talking to me and started in on the guys again.
We're going up over Burnside to the West side of town and at about Skyline is when it got real ugly. I had already turned up the radio a couple of times to drown her out (for which the guys thanked me) when she finally got on the guy's nerves.
Boy1: Liz. Christ. Would you just shut up. You're being a princess right now.
ALB: Why don't you just STFU Ben. I don't know who the fuck you think YOU are. etc etc again.
Boy2 in the meantime had passed out sitting behind me.
I reached up and turned the radio up again. Boy1 reached up and patted me on the shoulder and said "Hey. I'm sorry my friend is being such a bitch."
Me: Welcome to my world Dude. :)
ALB: "Welcome to my world." Yeah right. All you fucking do is drive around and look stupid.
Me: reaching up to turn the radio down Look little girl, I realize you're having a bad night, but don't start fucking w/me.
ALB: Well, that IS what you do, right? Drive around and look stupid. I don't know why you have to jump in the middle of MY conversation.
Me: I was talking to Ben so you actually jumped in the middle of OUR conversation. A little word of advice: you ...
ALB: What? HUH? Is it advice on how not to be STUPID?
Me: Oh wow. pulling over into the 24 hr QFC at Miller/Barnes Actually, yes. It is. I was going to say "you should try not to piss of your driver before they get you where you're going" but now it's too late.
ALB: Why are you pulling in here? Did we TELL you to pull over? Can't even follow simple directions. No wonder you're a cab driver.
Me: I'm pulling over because you're getting out. Here. Now.
After a bit of arguing they all got out. They guys didn't want to but since they couldn't shut her up and I don't leave women on the side of the road alone ... you know.
Same story. Different script.
