So he went out to the front of the casino where there was a cabwaiting. He got in and explained his situation to the cabbie. Hepromised to send the driver money from home, he offered him hiscredit card numbers, his drivers license number, his address,etc. but to no avail.
The cabbie said, "If you don't have fifteen dollars, get thehell out of my cab!" So the businessman was forced to hitch-hiketo the airport and was barely in time to catch his flight.
One year later the businessman, having worked long and hard toregain his financial success, returned to Vegas and this time hewon big.
Feeling pretty good about himself, he went out to the front ofthe casino to get a cab ride back to the airport. Well whoshould he see out there, at the end of a long line of cabs, buthis old buddy who had refused to give him a ride when he wasdown on his luck.
The businessman thought for a moment about how he could make theguy pay for his lack of charity, and he hit on a plan.
The businessman got in the first cab in the line, "How much fora ride to the airport," he asked? "Fifteen bucks," came thereply. "And how much for you to give me a blow-job on the way?"
"What?!!! Get the hell out of my cab." The businessman got intothe back of each cab in the long line and asked the samequestions, with the same result. When he got to his old friendat the back of the line, he got in and asked, "How much for aride to the airport?"
The cabbie replied, "fifteen bucks."
The businessman said, "OK" and off they went. Then, as theydrove slowly past the long line of cabs the businessman gave abig smile and thumbs up sign to each driver.
