** On blowing one's wad

Post by Erik_Kowal » Wed Aug 17, 2005 4:35 am

A successful businessman flew to Vegas for the weekend to gamble. There, despite starting off with a thick wad of bills, he lost the shirt off his back; by Sunday evening he had nothing left but a quarter in small change and the second half of his round-trip ticket. However, if he could just get to the airport, he would be able to make it home. He went outside to the front of the casino, where a single cab was waiting at the stand.

He got in and explained his situation to the cabbie. He promised to send the driver money from home; he offered him his credit card numbers. He promised to give him the number of his driver’s license, his address and all manner of things; but all was to no avail. The cabbie responded curtly, "If you don't have fifteen dollars, pal, just get the hell out of my cab!" So the exec was forced to hitchhike to the airport, where he arrived with barely enough time to rush through the terminal and catch his flight.

A full year later, having worked long and hard to regain his financial standing, the businessman returned to the city. This time he won big. Feeling pretty pleased with himself, he went outside to the casino entrance to catch a cab back to the airport.

On an impulse he decided that since he had plenty of time in hand and it had been hard to find anywhere indoors to smoke, he might as well first have a cigarette. While he was enjoying it he nonchalantly strolled down to the back end of the taxi stand.

A nearby streetlamp lit up the interior of the rearmost vehicle. In it the executive happened to catch sight of his old adversary, the cabbie who had refused to give him a ride when his luck was down. Making no sign of recognition, he thought for a moment about how he could repay the other fellow for his lack of charity, and hit on a plan.

Back in front of the casino entrance, the businessman opened the door of the first cab in the line. "How much for a ride to the airport?" he asked. "Fifteen bucks," came the reply. "And how much for you to give me a blowjob on the way?" "What?! Get the hell out of my cab!" At each successive cab down the line he asked the same questions, with similar results.

When he reached the last cab, the executive climbed into the rear and asked his customary question: "How much for a ride to the airport?" The cabbie replied, "Fifteen bucks." “OK,” agreed his passenger, and off they went.

The cab slowly started to accelerate past the long line of cabs. The businessman lowered his window and craned his head outside. As the cab passed by the waiting taxis, each driver had his eye caught by the enormous grin and emphatic thumbs-up gesture of its passenger that was delivered specially to him.
