a passenger in a cab leaned over to ask the driver a question and tapped him on the shoulder. the driver screamed, lost control of the cab, nearly hit a bus, drove up over the curb, and stopped just inches from a large plate glass window. for a few moments everything was silent in the cab, and then the still shaking driver said, "im sorry but you scared the daylights out of me". the frightened passenger, apologized to the driver and said he didnt realize a mere tap on the shoulder could frighten him so much. the driver replied, "no, no, im sorry, its entirely my fault. today is my first day driving a cab. Ive been driving a hearse for the last 25 years.
