What The Limo Driver Knows

Posted: April 10, 2010 in Uncategorized

I had to take a car service with my mom and my wife to the airport coming back from vacation.

I sat up front and talked to the limo driver.

I think “What The Limo Driver Knows” would make for a great book.

He told me they drive a certain baseball team around during spring training and the company has a special meeting to tell them not to talk to the press. He said they get offered bribes from writers.

He said it was common knowledge among professional drivers what Tiger was up to for a long time.

He told me one of my favorite bands, guys who display nothing but old school camaraderie on stage, hate each other and won’t travel in the same vehicles.

He told me about a famous heavy metal band that has to schedule different times to eat because they won’t sit at the same table.

He said he feels really bad for the boy bands because they are exhausted and squeezed to make as much money as possible why they are profitable.

He said it’s hard to cheer for some athletes because he’s driven them and see how they act.

He said the worst are bachelorette trips and as each woman is dropped off the remaining women all get catty. The last woman then tells him about the next to last woman who got dropped off.

He said bachelor parties are easy because the guys just go to the strip clubs, get drunk and when they run out of money they go home.

The ride wasn’t long enough to hear everything.

Too bad.

    I think this is an incredibly excellent idea for a book. And that could be the title, yes?

  2. Ginny says:

    For a brief period of poverty in our early married life Rick drove a limo – stock broker by day and limo driver by night – I think he lasted about 2 weeks!

    You and he can write this one and I will edit!

    Too bad you had the time constraint of catching a plane; otherwise, I’d think it’d tempting to ask him to take the “long way round” to hear more stories! I wonder how many limo drivers keep diaries of their experiences?

    You don’t need to hear more stories, Tom, you need to make them up….remember HACK? I loved that show!

  5. Would love to spend a day with that guy. Imagine what you’d learn!

    The Limo Driver gets killed?

    or the limo driver reads that one of his famous guests got killed nd does a little sleuthing given his insider knowledge?

    The limo driver tells his girl over pillow talk…she gets killed…turns out she was also the girl of a famous person and shared with him…hes connected to the bad stuff limo driver was talking about and takes out the girl and limo driver is nexted? High speed chases in a limo?

    Does the limo driver tell the bartender what he knows? Is the limo driver LIKE a bar tender…on wheels?

  8. Becca says:

    Remember the OJ thing? The limo driver had to testify.

  9. Limousine says:

    it’s funny how knowledgable limo driers can be, and they’re often very experienced in life outside of driving having much experience in other jobs.
