The good news is I had a $500 night last night. All kind of Christmas parties and people were moving around and getting shit faced in front of their bosses so it was a non stop cash printing session for cabbies.

The bad news is I opened up some financial news paper this morning and learned that the US dollar is still going down the toilet at a light speed, so that cash I made last night was worth like 10 Euros or some shit like that. I think I am going have to demand my passengers to pay me in Indian Rupees tonight!

I am heading to work now boys and girls and please don't forget the homeless.

Mad Cabbie.

The last I checked, Mad, the US Dollar is just below Monopoly money in the exchange rates.

I hear ya MC as I was the driver for a neighbor last night to her company holiday party. She was the what not to do at the office Holiday Party. I tried numerous times to get out of there. She propmtly passed out in my car and snored the entire way home. I don't think she gets out much.

At one point I wondered if this was how you felt except you get paid for it. Then again at the trate if the US dollar I might have gotten the better bargain with the nice meal in Potomac before the posh got smashed.

I hope you continue to get lots of fares and no pukers!

My mother now refers to the US dollar as the US peso.

Can this president screw up anything else?

Peggy, I think he has pretty much covered all of it. The next president is going to spend his/her whole term cleaning up the mess. What a drag that would be. But. If he/she can do it well, s/he will come out smelling like a rose.

The dollar's slide has gotten to the point where Jay-Z, in one of his latest rap videos, is flashing wads of EUROS and not DOLLARS.
