NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Barbra Streisand really knows how to drive her limo drivers crazy.

That’s according to entertainment journalist Anita Talbert, who says Babs tops the list of kookiest celebrity customers served by a New York-based limo driver who wishes to remain anonymous.

Streisand barked at the driver: “You’re gonna open my door, aren’t you?” Once in the limo, Babs reportedly chatted up a storm on her cellular phone while bitching about everything from the weather to her hair.

Streisand hasn’t been the only pain in the neck for limo drivers. Joan Collins insisted that the driver count every piece of her luggage before putting it in the trunk and warned him, “There better be 32 pieces.”

Tennis star Martina Navratilova made the limo driver watch her dog for five hours – and it was a yippy little poodle that wouldn’t stop barking or shivering.

But not all limo-riding celebrities are jerks. When Julio Iglesias found out the limo driver’s mother was a fan, he called her and talked to her for 10 minutes.
