A businessman flew to Vegas for the weekend to gamble. He lost the shirt
off his back, and had nothing left but the return half of his roundtrip
ticket -- If he could just get to the airport he could get himself home. So
he went out to the front of the casino where there was a cab waiting. As
they drove off he explained his situation to the cabbie. He promised to
send the driver money from home, he offered him his credit card numbers,
his driver's license number, his address, etc. but to no avail. The cabbie
pulled over and said (adopt appropriate dialect), "If you don't have fifteen
dollars, get the hell out of my cab!" So the businessman was forced to
hitch-hike to the airport and was barely in time to catch his flight.
One year later the businessman, having worked long and hard to regain his
financial success, returned to Vegas and this time he won big. Feeling
pretty good about himself, he went out to the front of the casino to get a
cab ride back to the airport. Well, who should he see out there, at the back
end of a long line of cabs, but his old buddy who had refused to give him
a ride when he was down on his luck. The businessman decided he would make
the guy pay for his lack of charity.
The businessman got in the first cab in the line. "How much for a ride to
the airport?" he asked. "Fifteen bucks," came the reply. "And how much for
you to give me a blowjob on the way?" "What?! Get the hell out of my cab."
The businessman got into the back of each cab in the long line and asked
the same questions, with the same result. When he got to his old friend at
the back of the line, he got in and asked "How much for a ride to the
airport?" The cabbie replied "fifteen bucks." The businessman said "ok"
and off they went. Then, as they drove slowly past the long line of cabs,
the businessman gave a big smile and thumbs up sign to each driver.
