A man hails a cab. He sits in it. He taps the driver on the shoulder and the man starts screaming. He makes a rash turn, almost crashes into a truck and comes to a screeching halt next to the pavement. The passenger is frightened.
Passenger: I’m sorry, but how come you got so scared by a tap on the shoulder?
Cab driver: No, no, it wasn’t your mistake. Since the past 25 years, I have been taking dead bodies to the cemetery in this car. So I thought you were a dead body and that is why this happened.
