    You’re right firefighter isn’t! My bad! But landscaper is! It’s a great thing that does nothing to impact my point either way and that rubber must taste great!

    Were you there? If not, maybe not comment on something you know nothing about?

    If we drove according to all traffic laws the country would be gridlocked 24/7.

    There’s an old saying somebody should’ve taught him

    Don’t assume anything because it makes an ASS out of U and ME

    Also- I can see how left lane only for passing would work in canada- becasue highway traffic has to merge to onramps there . its called right of way. That would never work here, becasue people drive like its a competition here. Also- most of the onramps around here dont give much room for merging and they have you go around in a circle before gettting up to 80 mph.

    Left lane is always safest around these parts

    Yes, that's the letter of the law. The letter of the law also says not to drive above the posted speed limit. Why is one more important to strictly obey? I don't have any idea what the interaction between CDJ and the police officer was, or if the description that it was truly an "empty highway" is completely accurate. What I do know is that if he was not impeding anyone, and wasn't causing an issue to anyone, pulling him over to give him a ticket for driving in the left lane is a dick move. Regardless of any argument about which occupation is more dangerous, it was a dick move. Also don't have any idea if CDJ was snarky to the officer. If he was, he earned the ticket.

    I would have done the same thing, especially if it’s a series of ramps with short runway, or blind spots/trees

    I’ve screamed more times than i can count at people who refuse to move over a lane to allow a merge.

    This is a stupid ticket. A ticket for the sake of issuing a ticket. Very easily could’ve been a warning, or really nothing at all

    Did he ever say it wasn't the law?

    I thanked him when he gave me the paperwork and told him to have a good night lol. I wouldn’t dare be snarky, that’s a quick way to a guaranteed ticket. I’m an idiot, I’m not stupid ;)

    All the more reason to hate Davios.

    This makes me sad. Such a great place to eat and have a pint.

    Since I don't feel like forking over a $1 to the globe to be able to read it can you clarify how Davios is to blame?

    Anyone else think Tuesday is the most bland day of the week?

    Monday - Everyone's pissed off. Time to go back to work/school miserable.

    Wednesday - Hump day. Halfway through
    Thursday - One more day
    Friday - It's here. Get through it and it's time for the weekend
    Saturday - Paradise
    Sunday - Paradise in the morning and then after about 3:00, you start dreading Monday the next day

    Tuesday is just there. Am I really overthinking something that means nothing?

    I don't think so, just complained that he got a ticket for not abiding by the law is all. We all break driving laws, a lot. so don't bitch when you actually get caught.

    Well we did learn that my paper salesman that drive around selling paper have more dangerous jobs then cops. It's the statistics! Just like WAR where Mike Minor is better than Justin Verlander and Jacob DeGrom

    An issue is that not all cops have the same experiences. Like we hear police officer and you think it's some kind of NYPD Blue shit every day, but if you're just some local cop in Vermont you're driving around doing nothing half the day or sitting in the office filling out paperwork. And there are way more of those office cops than downtown Chicago homicide detectives out there, which explains the statistics.

    They bought Doyle's for their liquor license so they can use it in their new fancy, overpriced Seaport restaurant.

    Go raid someone else's neighborhood.

    I grew up going here and the food and drink are awesome as is the neighborhood feel it still has.

    Judging by the reaction, I won't be shocked if this gets blocked.

    Never piss off someone from JP.

    It's true. At least during hockey season, we almost always have a Tuesday game to watch. Outside of that, I used to look forward to America's Got Talent, but the show has really gone to hell the last few years.

    Then you must know more than that article. I just got a copy of it and I read that the property value is just to high and Burke can't afford it. He decided to sell.

    Too bad. I still enjoy Friendlys. Pretty good breakfast too.

    Super melt, Coke, waffle fries and a sundae runs probably 17 bucks max. That’s if the melt isn’t running the free sundae special. Can’t beat it.

    My point was you are a target 24/7. Also, every domestic, every traffic stop, every warrant is a chance that to me is greater than salesmen but what do I know. Plus, all those other jobs shut down in bad conditions, bad weather, bad anything and the deaths are results of accidents in most cases, you don't have that whole other segment of you know, people actually trying to cause you harm.
