Taxi Driver

A passenger in a taxi leaned over to ask the driver a question and tapped him on the shoulder. The driver screamed, lost control of the cab, nearly hit a bus, drove up over the curb, and stopped just inches from a large plate glass window. For a few moments everything was silent in the cab, and then the still shaking driver said, "I'm sorry but you scared the daylights out of me." The frightened passenger apologized to the driver and said he didn't realize a mere tap on the shoulder could frighten him so much. The driver replied, "No, no, I'm sorry, it's entirely my fault. Today is my first day driving a cab. I've been driving a hearse for the last 25 years."

Good one. I think I need to print this one out, and pass around work. Considering I dispatch for a Cab company. Thanks for the laugh.

I think this joke is perfect for you then. Give it to all your co-workers. By the by... I didn't know taxi companies did "dispatching" but now that I think about it... it only makes sense.
