It has nothing to do with travel, but it is so hilarious! Make sure you watch the video too.

This story actually made it onto the radio airwaves in Sydney, Australia! The announcer first read a transcript, then played the actual tape ... how composed was that cabbie! Turns out, our local announcer has a cabbie brother, and has great respect for their abililty to converse knowledgeably on almost every subject!

Well, converse on any subject, anyway -I'm not sure about the adverb. Was it George Burns who said "it's a pity that all the people who really know how to run the country are too busy driving cabs and cutting hair to do it"? (He must have known my barber.)

That aside, hats off to the intrepid Mr Goma. Who among us could have done as well? And it's nice to know that even the BBC is fallible.

He wasnt a cabbie but a IT job applicant awaiting his interview. He thought that thus was part of the interview process and got some what irritated that no one had asked him about his IT experiance.

The expression on his face when they gave his supposed name and title...too, too funny! I'm sure mine would have been far worse!

He was brilliant !

I hope he got whatever job he was applying for, and a better salary.
