One night recently after work I did an interview on ABC local radio. After the usual questions the host threw the spot open to listeners to call in with their own tales from the frontline.
One caller, John, a cabbie from Newcastle was notable for a rambling overview of troublesome passengers. Mercifully the host didn’t require a response from me as I simply didn’t have one.
This bloke holds some pretty controversial opinions which he expresses in a fearless, artless style via his website. He also posts monologues of his world view on YouTube.
Enter Bridgit Gread, an acerbic Melbourne blogger who takes aim at hapless John:
John’s endearing combination of outspokeness (sic), incoherence and ignorance is not so surprising once you learn that he’s a cab driver.
Bridgit’s own fearless brand of invective is not so surprising once you learn that she’s anonymous. Bravo!
UPDATE: Fearless Bridgit bows out: "It’s been a rollercoaster few years. I’ve laughed and gasped and cringed; I’ve ridiculed all manner of fools and freaks; and above all I’ve had fun."
