not ordering a minicab because it's £20 cheaper than a black cab

i was thinking that you would be lucky to be able to afford public transport and that walking would be the option...

oh how wrong i was!

Well, I wouldn't expect him to walk 10 miles, but WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE TUBE??!!

Shanks' pony Is as good as a cab any day, and far healthier wink

It would be walking here too

Public transport is really expensive, if there's more than 1 of you, it's actually cheaper to get a cab

Depends where you are. In many places a taxi is similar to/cheaper than public transport especially if there is more than one adult.

Ok, well the tube will cost about £3, a minicab about £45, a black cab about £65
He's trying to justify the £45, but cries to me that we are "on the bones of our arse"

I think it's time to change the "our" in that comment to "my" / "his"...grin
