Scouse Taxi Driver Gets Offered Rizlas As Payment On New Year's Eve

Getting a taxi on a New Year's Eve night out is such a pain in the arse, but something we all must go through.

Stood in the cold and wet street, clinging onto a 12" meat feast pizza trying to flag down a cab, inevitably having to wrestle a pissed student who's going for the same car is not the way you want to spend celebrating a new year.

The dissatisfaction of taxi journeys is shared with the driver too, as by the early hours their car smells like a kebab shop, they've listened to a good hand full of people chat out of their arse and someone has probably thrown up.

But this cab driver from Liverpool, who drives for Delta Taxis, had a completely different issue last night when a man tried paying him in Rizlas.

For those unaware, Rizlas are cigarette papers, which are, I'm sure you're all aware, not legal tender.

From what can be deciphered from the customer's drunken ramblings, it seems that he rang a taxi, but then quickly decided he didn't want it because he was meeting his mate. Feeling bad about calling the driver out on NYE, he offered him his ciggie skins as pay for his troubles.

The driver repeatedly questions him over why he's trying to pay him with biodegradable rolling papers, to which the the geezer says: "I know it's Rizla, but do you need more? More money? I know they're Rizla."

It's probably the best two minutes of footage you'll watch today.
