If you don't mind me asking, how does the cabbie get the $20. Do you go into the foyer and wait for the punter to go into a room and then get paid?

In Dublin (dublintaxi.blogspot.com) we have no legal brothels but lap dancing clubs do pay a reward for punters..
Glad you are back.
We have 2 of those cable bridges in Ireland.

Here in Canberra, a few years ago we too used to get 20 bucks for providing business to these establishments. We all knew which ones payed promptly and which ones were a bit slack. And therefore where to direct business.

I also once picked up a gentleman from a strict Muslim country - whose first destination request was to one of our famous xxx video shops. He came out struggling with a large box full of items....should have presented myself to the counter for my commission!

Simon, depends, one joint makes us wait outside whilst the client meets the girls. Last night I stood by the open doorway with one eye on the punter and the other on the cab.

Hi John, I can't get your link working..?

Actually, I think that you should disclose this secret commission to the the punter. If you don't, this is really unethical conduct, no better than the kickbacks from duty-free stores to tour guides.

It may even be a crime. Have a look at section 249D of the Crimes Act


That's an indictable offence with a maximum penalty of 7 years' imprisonment!

Marcel, in this case no worries, I informed the punter of my commission.

Of course you did, Adrian.

I'd like to hear more about the bird from San Francisco wearing the flimsy catsuit

gee marcel the world is full of party pooters like you.

I suggest you go out and talk to women, not visit any brothels.


Paper Boy, sorry, but you'll have to wait for the autobiography.
