RIP poor exploited working man.

The Tuk Tuk Drivers Guild awards you honorary real-Tuk Tuk Driver status.
- it is a gold pass in the afterlife, and something you Grab blokes normally never get.

I'll hail you for a long ride around town when i arrive, and you can show me how the netherworld all works..
Just like real Tuk Tuk drivers do, in this illusion of real life that us poor suckers live in now..

He probably drink too much or had heart attack from overcharging a customer by $20

Yep - put the boot in. ^^^

Sorry Strok, that may sound a bit harsh - but as someone who has crossed the line myself on a death thread - i can tell you this kind of stuff will upset people. Including me in this case, but that's beside the point.
A direct slag-off like this, aimed at the dead person, is more than a bit too far.
only my view, but hopefully you will take this on board.

Happy Day Stern,
This is a lovely piece here. This theme regarding the proletariat drivers here and their souls and yours intertwined is heartfelt of another day it seems but that connection is eternal. RIP to the driver and you will ride with him again in a guided and trusted chariot.........

Today could be the last day for any of us. We should all make the most of whatever time we're blessed with.

RIP to the guy.
