The jumpy taxi driver (joke)

The passenger tapped the taxi driver on his shoulder to ask him a question. The driver screamed, lost control, swerved violently, nearly hitting a bus, then crossed the sidewalk, and finally stopped inches from an outdoor cafe. After a moment when neither breathed, the driver yelled at his fare, “Don’t do that! You scared the hell out of me!” The passenger apologized. “I’m sorry; I didn’t know a little tap on the shoulder would bother you.” The driver replied, “I’m sorry; it’s just that today is my first day on the job — for the last 25 years, I drove a hearse!”
