Great story here http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/live/articles/news/news.html?in_article_id=558679&in_page_id=1770 about a streetwise youngster who was trying to order a sherbert dab to take her from London to Bristol.
She referred to the vehicle as a "Joe Baxi", which confused the directory company taking her call. The would-be passenger then clarified everything by saying she wanted a "cab innit". As a result, she was put through to a furniture supplier who said the cheapest one available was £180. It was duly delivered the next morning.
Excuse me while I go and drill a hole in the back of my head with a Black & Decker.
"Where to darlin'? Bristol? That'll cost yer. And I ain't got no room for that bleeding chest of drawers."
