Wednesday, en route (@7am) to a campaign shoot at Spring Studios, I didnt realise there was such a taxi war (like robot wars).
AddLee (my driver, BTW the most awesome legend eva): so do you use black cabs?
ME: (sensing i should say no) No (True - I hate Black Cabs)
AddLee: Good, because they’re arseholes.
I was in a black cab recently and we got chatting. He was like ‘so, you’re Add Lee. You know…. we call you African Lee’
AddLee: Well thats not a nice thing to say mate. You call us African Lee? Do you want to know what we call you?
Black Cab Man: I don’t care what you call me/us…..OK, what do you call us?
AddLee: I thought you didn’t care..?…
BCM: errr. I don’t. I want to know though.
AddLee: Well mate, I’m happy to divulge. We call you all 'Dial a Rapist”
*at that point apparently BCM got angry and asked him to get out the cab’
ME: Who knew there was such transport animosity!
