What if fido dido was so anthropomorphised that people did recognise he was a dog

Back when I was living in Brixton, I got into a taxi one night and said take me to Brixton High Street. He said “No such place”. I said “I live there, just take me to the high street in Brixton”. He said “There is no Brixton High Street, do you mean Brixton Road?”. I said yes and off he went.

Thing is, if I’d said Brixton Road, he’d have said “which part” as it’s a very long road. I said “Brixton High Street” to circumvent this confusion. What a penoid cunt that guy was, probably posts here.
