Uber water taxi

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3888230/The-cabbie-thought-water-taxi-Drone-captures-Uber-dr...

I know it is your favourite newspaper but I had to post this for two reasons

- Idiot driver

- who moved Holy Island 50 miles south

The cabbie who thought he was in a water taxi: Drone captures Uber driver being completely swamped after getting caught by the rising tide at Holy Island
  • Drone footage catches moment cabbie tries to drive through causeway
  • His vehicle quickly becomes swamped in water in the River Tyne
  • Passengers were forced to wade through the rising tide on foot 
  • Eventually they were rescued from the water by an RNLI boat

What a classic case of Daily Fail miss-reporting! Holy Island is miles away from the Tyne.

I hope the RNLI read him the riot act, and then sent him the bill!

What a complete and utter idiot! Crazy2

Re: Uber water taxi

Shouldn't thread be "Unter water taxi"?

No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.

Surprised they don't have a longer one to describe mothers-in-law.
