    Papers please
    I have a responsibility to not be intimidated and bullied by low life losers who abuse what little power is granted to them as ski patrollers.

    Disabilities consultant I'm working with says only 4% of disabilities are limited mobility. Majority are visual and mentally challenged.

    And she knows her stuff. Her kid is deaf and blind...! And a sweetheart, too.

    Tragedy of the commons. Same as it ever was.

    It bugs me that people can act so shamelessly. I think that's why we cringe when we see shitty parents parenting shittily...we know those kids are more likely to end up leeches on society, gaming the system.

    Yep. A lot of times people look completely normal, and some even sound normal to talk to at first, but then you start to realize they aren't.

    There are also things like MS where people have good and bad days.

    Or my mom when she was dying. She could walk fine and look fine but after 30 feet she would be so tired she'd nearly pass out. She had a wheel chair so she could get out as much as she wanted/could her last few weeks.

    You just don't know.

    I couldn't agree more. You're absolutely right. It's good to give the benefit of the doubt.

    Then there are the hippies who roll onto my bus with their pitbull, drop like 20 pennies into the thing for 3 able bodies adults, and head straight to the pharmacy. I'd bet a year's salary they don't have MS.
    Benefit of the doubt is the right thing, but sometimes there's no doubt at all.

    It's a job for mouth breathers. Congratulations!

    Thanks homie.

    You're right, there is a direct one-to-one correlation between job title and intellect. You have it figured out: the world is simple, because you're simple, and the world comes to you through your simple mind.

Pretty sweet.

    I have another shitshow regular who is a baby mama for a prisoner in the local prison. Her service dog is a purse chihuahua. Drinking water and dog piss on the bus seats for everyone so she can carry a dog around to her appointments and shopping and whatnot.

    It's fucked up. I see this every day and it sucks.

That is not valid in my opinion, though it is legally airtight. I personally know three people now in Aspen who are pulling the ESA scam, one who is a good friend.

    There should really be no condoning these scams. They are really no different that printing up a fake handicapped placard and parking in handicapped spots. I hope the ESA issue will be revisited and cancelled (fat chance). Delete the whole category of ESAs and make people get highly trained service dogs if they have a real need. And make documentation on demand the standard. People have to give documentation to buy liquor, get on an airplane, when requested by a cop during traffic stops, buy a gun. Why should a dog not have to be verified, when people are every day?

    I partially agree, but there will be some compassionate self diagnosis type cases still allowed for compassion sake. There are many elderly that use companion dogs that might not otherwise qualify for typical service dog roles. All shapes and sizes in the USA.

    Jethro, At the crux, dogs are very low impact on our common space, opposite and unlike underage drinking and guns.


    But, It might also lower shelter populations because of some perceived flaw in older or unsuccessfully trained dog. The scammers own multiple dogs and they keep getting new ones to pull the scam?

    How quickly people forget.

    Yetiman posted some seriously racist shit recently. Most of it seemingly fueled by bitterness.

    I'm not surprised he's a bus driver because that's a fitting job for a (close)to middle aged loser that is so dissatisfied with his life that he looks down on an entire group of people because they are different than he is.

    Maybe he is, I don't see why a decent guy would attack someone for being a bus driver though. Is Yeti really racist for is DBS totally emo about all social issues now that he's sober?

    Back to the thread topic, I think an ESA or Service chimp would be cool.

    I made an African American lady go berserk the other day because she overheard me say monkey in a conversation not related to her or race at all.

    She thinks I'm racist.

    I hate classism and people who base their entire existence and other peoples worth on what they do for a job.

    Such a dick move

    Well there is some truth to what he posted in that quote. What the root cause of that is or who is at fault is another matter. It is a generalization but that could be said about classifying bus driving as "a job for mouth breathers". That's a lot of hate coming from someone who is enlightened as you.

    I know a mag that just retired from bus driving. Cool guy. Not a loser or mouth breather.

    Yeti man has a colorful, descriptive and honest way of writing and I would need to read the whole conversation to form an opinion.

    What I do know is that my experience of Yetiman has been a kind, thoughtful and compassionate person that attempts to help others when the opportunity presents itself.

    Doughboy on the other hand... hate spewing and no known helpfulness or compassion.

    I believe you could really benefit from an emotional support animal. An alligator might fill the bill.

    Doughboy calls everyone racist.

    He thinks it makes him superior and actually makes doughboy look racist.

    I look down on a distinct cultural group of people who abuse each other and animals at a far, far higher rate than anything approaching acceptable. It's not because I'm a loser. It's because I have a strong distaste for the culture of abuse I've seen on multiple reservations.

    An african-american guy hated me for about 6 months because there was a parade and the route wasn't going where it normally goes. I tried to explain, he went batshit, stomped around, called me a redneck racist motherfucker and presumably walked home. I try, in small ways, to be extra good to that guy because I just assume he's hair-trigger because of some history of being treated in a racist way.

    How do I know about that sort of thing? Because me, my ex girlfriend, and her kids were treated like shit...with hostility, disrespect, and violence when we were the outsiders in indian country....and it left psychological residue for me to overcome. So I understand that. Nobody's perfect but one of the best things about The Bus is we do the same thing over and over and over again so you almost always get to learn from your mistake and try again. Growing up running race courses over and over and over again, this aspect is something I can appreciate.
