My talk went well at the Landlord & Buy to Let Show today so I decided to treat myself to a cab for part of my journey across London. Cabbies however are not what they were:
Me: Hello, can you take me to the nearest Central line underground station please?
Cabbie: Sorry love, no idea
Me: All right then, take me to Holland Park
Cabbie: Where’s that then?
Me: Don’t you know? Didn’t you do the Knowledge?
At this point he suggested that I might like to take another cab. WHICH I was quite happy to do, particularly as the second Cabbie told me he was a property investor (“and my girlfriend has about 60 properties”). Another card given out. And he knew where Holland Park underground station was.
Just a day in the life. And talking about days in the life, I have a real treat for you all coming up. Our regular guest blogger, Ben Reeve Lewis, is going to be doing a new series for me, “TRO Confidential”. Its brilliant. The first article “The case of the Bad Tempered Woman” will be going up on Friday.
