A passenger got into a cab and gave his destination. Immediately the cab driver zoomed off and drove right through several red lights without even hitting the brakes.
“What are you doing?!” screamed the passenger, terrified. ” You’ll get us all killed!”
“Nonsense,” replied the cabbie calmly. “Traffic laws are stupid. Thirty years since me and my brother started driving cabs in this country, not once have either of us ever stopped for a red light. No accidents, no injuries.”
A few moments later, however, the light turned green. Immediately, the cab driver slammed on the brakes.
“Now what are you doing?” screamed the bewildered passenger. “The light was green!”
“I know!” said the cabbie. “My brother could’ve been coming the opposite way!”
