    it worked. The cops never pulled over any of our delivery drivers. And, a wonderful byproduct of that was the fucking cops never pulled me over anymore either because they assumed that I was out delivering pizzas no matter what time of the day or night that they saw my piece of shit car. So I got away with all kinds of stupidity at that point.
    NY Eve I run a red light in front of the police station and hang a screeching right turn. Cop pulls me over, looks at the hot box, and says--"Your tell Leo it's the last time" as he lets me go. My boss--33 year old Italian immigrant had the police paid off not to ticket his drivers. Never saw a cop get one of his pizzas though.

    I referenced Bogart as an actor and also as the subject of a Little Feat song in relation to the “don’t Bogart that …..”. Are you this obtuse in real life? It’s all there in my post.

    Except that it was not a Little Feat song, more like a Little Feat cover.

    The Fraternity of Man was an American blues rock and psychedelic rock group from the 1960s. They are most famous for their 1968 song "Don't Bogart Me," which was featured in the 1969 road movie Easy Rider. Its original members included three musicians from Lowell George's band The Factory – Richie Hayward (later of Little Feat), Warren Klein, and Martin Kibbee – who joined Elliot Ingber from the Mothers of Invention and Larry Stash Wagner. Blues leads were handled by Ingber, and psychedelic leads were played by Klein, including "Oh No I Don't Believe It" (widely attributed to Ingber due to his association with the Mothers). The band broke up after recording two albums. more »

    Take it to the things that amuse you thread.

    Back on track, people that pull up to a fueling station and maybe they fuel, maybe they just go inside and shop. Either way there is no spot at the pumps for those of us who just want to put gas in our vehicles. This AM I pull in and there is a Sprinter Van (don't get me started) blocking both pumps and not doing anything. I walk up to his window (on his phone) and ask if he is fueling? "In a minute" he says.

    I suggested he perform a sexual act upon himself.

    I think he was more annoyed than amused.

    With masks mandates over in VT for vaccinated folk, the people who wander around with a chin diaper or dick nosing fucking aggrevate me. Wear it properly or don't fucking wear it. Ya, this could go in two other different threads. It belongs here because it's fucking annoying.

    I have a theory that people who wear a mask that doesn't cover their nose have covid and can't feel their nose. Best to avoid them.

    You mean holidays like memorial day and July 4th aren't paid holidays where 90% of stuff is closed? Statutory holidays?

    Handed the shit back, drove to Starbucks, no issues. Fucking annoying.
    Those silly Americans always swiping their credit cards to pay for things. What kind of a shithole country doesn't have ubiquitous tap-to-pay in 2021?

    Pretty much yeah that’s exactly what I mean. I guess I don’t study this shit but it sure seems to me that holiday time, especially paid, is becoming more and more out of reach for Americans. And 90% closed? Hmmm… MAYBE from 6pm 12/24 to noon 12/25 you MIGHT see numbers that high if you only look at storefronts. There are of course other jobs. But no of course I don’t literally mean that nobody gets any holidays off.

    Huh. Well I had no idea. That sort of shit would piss me off.

    In Canada we get the following which are country-wide days off as far as I know. And if you have to work then you get either time off in lieu or double pay. I'm 99% certain this is the law:
    January 1 - new years day
    Good Friday
    3rd Monday in May - Victoria Day
    July 1 - Canada Day
    1st Monday in September - Labour Day
    3rd Monday in October - Thanksgiving Day
    December 25 - Festivus

    Like even your minimum wage burger flipper would qualify for some form of paid holiday for these.

    Then there are the other days sort of scattered about the provinces that I don't think are legal requirements to have paid time off but for the most part people still get it:
    3rd Monday in February - Family Day
    1st Monday in August - Civic Holiday

    Certain provinces have their own variations but for the most part this is what happens up north.

    "Hodl"

    Stonks is (kinda) funny, and often an apt description.

    Teh happened organically.

    Hodl is just contrived.

    Back up alarms on vehicles.

    Surely not that many people used to get killed in reversing accidents to make them worthwhile?

    Pretty sure no body could back up before back alarms were invented.
