Secret to winning friends: chocolate cake

Last night I picked up at a KFC, actually it was a combination restaurant, with a KFC, Pizza Hut, and something else. I got the two guys, younger guys who were drunk, half way to their house, when one of them opened one of the bags of food.

Him: What the fuck is this?

Other guy: What?

Him: This isn't our food! We got the wrong food.

Other guy: What did we get?

Him: We made out. There's a lot of good stuff here, but what are we going to do with this?

He held up a chocolate cake with white icing, packaged in clear plastic. It said Pillsbury on it.

Me: I have a suggestion...

That chocolate cake was the best tip I had all night, and I mentioned it on the radio: "I just got an entire chocolate cake for a tip. How cool is that?" Another driver immediately said: "What's your 20?" He came straight over to my location and got the first piece. It didn't take long for the rest of us to polish it off.

Brent,

I don't know about the book idea. I've thought about it, but I doubt it would sell. For now the blog will suffice.

Roy -- I laughed out loud. I'll use that on the cab stand tomorrow night. It's good cabbie humor.
