A Taxi Experience

As a journalist, I'm asked to travel around the globe to all sorts of 1 foreign countries. Over the years, I've used different means of transport. Of course, for long 2 trips, flying is the fastest and safest way to 3 reach a far-off destination.
Unfortunately, I'm not a very organized traveler and despite my travel agent's best efforts, 4 something always goes wrong. Last week, while I was heading for the airport, I realized I had left my passport at home. Obviously, I had to go back so I asked the taxi driver to turn around and take me home. In the meantime, I crossed my fingers and hoped that I wouldn't miss my 5 flight.
All the 6 way home, the driver was speeding in and out of traffic. He got even more carried 7 away when he got on the motorway, 8 travelling at speeds of up to 150 kilometres per hour.
By the time we arrived home, I was 9 in a state of shock and it took me a while to 10 catch my breath. So, before driving off again, I decided to pay him 11 a little extra, so that he would go slower as we were bound 12 to have an accident.
