Saint Peter

At the pearly gates again, a taxi driver and minister are waiting in line. St. Peter consults his list and says to the taxi driver, "Take this silken robe and golden staff and enter the Kingdom of Heaven."

St. Peter next greets the minister saying, "Take this cotton robe and wooden staff and enter the Kingdom of Heaven."

"Just a minute," says the minister. "That man was a taxi driver, and he gets a silken robe and golden staff while I get a cotton robe and wooden staff. How can this be?"

"Up here, we work by results," says St. Peter. "While you preached, people slept; while he drove, people prayed."

  1. LOL!! That's right.
    There's a saying here: "The only persons know in which direction the bajaj (how locals call auto rickshaw or tuk-tuk) will go are the driver himself and God." So we better pray!

  3. It's the one thing that cab drivers all over the world have in common...the ability to scare the bejeezus out of their passengers.

  17. That was an original! Very clever - and the guys that pick you up at the airport and deliver you to your hotel (and vice versa) scared the krap outta me! LAX is a place you don't want to be driving on two wheels!

  18. Makes perfect sense to me. And I think I've driven with that taxi driver in NYC! I was praying, I think we were on two wheels at one point to get through a narrowed lane due to construction. hahaha. Hope you had a great boating weekend.

  20. The last time I was in a taxi was in Barbaods about 2 years ago, and it was dark as hell, no streets lights for miles around and I was way out in the countryside, when the taxi driver took on board another pasenger, I will tell you this I was praying that night!
