Fucking plows had a termination deadline

No new post. It's Thursday. It was. Friday morning. Can't wait for Friday night cause Thursday was normal I mean Not bad. The weather sucked. Its cold again, -23. The taxi is warm. A total perk. I get to choose what, when, where and how I devote my time to my job. Taxi driving. Wed, Thur, Fri, Sat, Sun are my hours. I can't guarantee shit but if I say I'll be there I'll be there. I like to sometimes take Wednesdays off, Sundays too, sometimes. But lately I can't. I do, but money is tight. You gotta work. Ride the road. First fare. The fare I got before I got a Slurpee and Mentose fuel up at the sev, was a very short trip. Less then five bucks. I couldn't break her twenty dollar bill. "Free Ride" She got my card and got out. My second fare had change. I started my shift. An old client called me. She works in a massage parlor. She's just now turning twenty one. I met her when she was almost nineteen and she told me she was a hooker. She is one of my best clients. She saw me driving and sent out a text. I picked her up. Score. Later the short trip lady called me back. Tb's pub. I got there in ten minutes. She gets in and we go up to 152 st and wait for a crack deal. She picks up two hundred bucks worth. While I'm driving her to her house 2$ away she hands me a twenty and says "Is that enough." It was more then enough. Then while we were waiting for the red light to change she looked at me and said "I'm a working girl." I was like "oh. You should stop that!" She disagreed and said she's getting a number tomorrow. She said "If you know anyone who wants to fuck just call me up." See kids I get propositioned by whores to pimp them out. It's getting tougher and tougher economically. The twenty one year old girl said "I only had one client, and he was a cheap bastard." I don't know if a thirty seven year old crack head hooker would make very much money. I bet there is going to be more hookers, with the economic crunch and all. Tonight was cool. Melo. I didn't feel the crunch.

Well that's the economy for you isn't it. One day we'll all have to be hookers to survive. Sex is the only thing that always pays good enough. Sigh.

It's sad, but many people use prostitution as the easy way out because of economical issues.

Poor girl. I wonder where her life is going to lead her.

I bet there are gonna be more hookers...but with the economy the way it is...they will probably be charging "clearance" prices.
