I have a dilemma dear readers.
I really don't know what to do i am having to decide whither to stay with the taxi depot i currently work with or move to another!!
My lifts with my present firm have dropped steadily if slowly for the last 2 years more or less to the point that i now only lift about 60% of what i used too.
Now i know times are hard out there and taxi drivers are being hit hard because well lets face it taxi's are a bit of a luxury for most folks
I don't think that working with another (smaller) firm that i would lift more money to be honest i am likely to lift similar money, but my expenses would be some what reduced and working restrictions would be a bit laxer.
There is of course a draw back the work i would get would not be as "clean" by this i mean my punters would tend to cause trouble or run off without paying.
There is also the problem of wanging on,
Yes wanging is a word!!!
Wanging is when depot staff normally radio operators make sure the favoured driver gets the better paying work, some smaller depots are rife with this and while most drivers can spot it that its happening proving it is always a problem.
Driving for one of the two main depots in Belfast has quite a few draw backs too many to mention here but they do provide a measure of security, access to back up cabs if your own is broken, steady if not well payed contract work.
I really don't know what too do for the best,
So any advice you have i am willing to listen just post a comment i always read em,
I am also going to post a should i stay or should i go poll please feel free to vote.
