"Is that Seven Sevens Taxis? It's about your phone number..."

2 February 2011

"Hello, is that Seven Sevens Taxis?"

"No, you've got the wrong number, sorry."

"But I dialled seven 7s and that's the name of the taxi company. They're called Seven Sevens. Available 24... seven. Have you heard of them?"


"Good, I'd like a taxi then, please."

"No, we're not Seven Sevens Taxis. You need to dial a different number for them."

"Oh. Do you know the number?"

"Yes, it's Seven 6s."

"Seven 6s? But they're called Seven Sevens. That doesn't make a lick of sense."

"Fucking tell me about it."

    Photoshop? It even says 777-7777 on the sides of the cars. And there's no apostrophe in "Seven's".

    not a photoshop.... I saw that too and thought it a bit odd. The number is sevens so I reckon the designer was having a laugh and forgot to correct it.

    a quick google shows they use both the seven 7s and the seven 6's

    "And there’s no apostrophe in “Seven’s”." No, the typo is elsewhere. The company belongs to a man called Sven Seven.
