A man hails a taxi in Times Square. He gets in and closes the door.
The taxi begins to pull away into traffic, but the man hasn't given his destination yet.
So he taps the driver on the shoulder...
"WHAT ARE YOU, CRAZY!? DON'T STARTLE ME LIKE THAT! I COULD HAVE WRAPPED THE DAMNED CAB AROUND A LIGHTPOLE!"
The man says, "I'm sorry! I just wanted to let you know where I was headed!"
The driver takes a breath and says, "It's not your fault. This is my first day on this job. I just quit my last job of 25 years."
"What did you do?"
"I drove a hearse!"
