Some cab drivers are nutters, no two ways about it... some normal, some totally off the wall nuts.

One time, I took a cab to Parramatta which is a good half hour drive.
The guy proceeded to inform me on his principals on sex before marraige and politics and homosexuality... it was entiry too intense and when I got close enough to walk I told him to stop the cab.
Fruit loop.
