Drive she said

The spouse looks up from the dishes and sees the bemused look on my face: "What's wrong?"

Me: "The taxi company knows me."

The spouse: "?"

Me: "The dispatcher said, 'Hi, A! Are you going to the airport in the morning?' Before I even said anything."

The spouse laughs.

Me: "What?"

The spouse: "They're probably writing a book about you."

Me: "Hey!"

The spouse laughs again.

I think for a moment. "Maybe it's just because I'm always nice and I tip well."

The spouse, in a teasing tone: "Maybe it's because you're very memorable..."

Me, wailing: "Stop saying that!"

Go listen to some music: "Drive She Said" from the album The Big Heat by Stan Ridgway.
