Let’s face it, we’ve all been in situations where we’ve needed to make a quick getaway. That blind date, for example, who looked absolutely gorgeous but has a laugh like a blocked sink – or bears an uncanny resemblance to a Photofit last seen on Crimewatch. I do believe it’s essential that every girl of any age should have the numbers of a couple of reliable cab firms in the mobile telephone of her choice. Any reputable cab firm will, if asked, provide either a female driver or further information about the driver they are sending to set a woman’s mind at rest (e.g. the name of the driver or the registration number of the vehicle). A substantial amount of their business is transporting lone females, and they really do not want a reputation as a firm that a girl simply cannot rely on.
That said, I do wish a few of them would use adverts like this. I would seriously put this firm’s number at the top of my list. Who wouldn’t? If they’re prepared to take you wherever you want without asking difficult questions – like “shouldn’t we inform the constabulary?” or “is that blood on your frock?” – then they are definitely a firm to be counted on. Although I’d make sure I packed a change of clothes and a passport before I called them, just to be on the safe side.
