Every morning when I leave my home, the moped taxi drivers shout out to attract my attention. Most shout 'hello, sir', but some have clearly picked up phrases from other punters. Last night as I came out of a theatre on called me 'my brother', and I have been called 'my main man', but my favourite is the one whose cheery voice bawls out 'hello, sir, hello, my darling'. I'm not sure how effective his line is, but if I ever manage to sum up the courage to take one of them, I'll definitely use him.
