Dangerous Passenger

LSWCHP 15 November 2012 48

So there I was, motoring home along Parkes Way about 6pm this afternoon. As I went under the Kings Avenue overpass I noticed the passenger in the little green s***box in front of me stick his forearm out the window a little. I thought he was playing the old kids game of balancing his hand in the airflow, but sadly not.

What this total knob was doing was getting ready to drop his empty beer stubby on the road, which is what he did after a couple of seconds. The bottle went off like a grenade and shards of glass pattered against my car. If the windows had been down I could’ve had glass shards flying around inside my car.

I have never seen such contempt towards the environment and the safety of other road users. And this was particularly ironic because the tool was clearly wearing an orange Hi-Viz safety shirt at the time. So get stuffed Mr Safety Shirt Passenger Fool, and may the fleas of a thousand camels infest your pubic hair.

Not sure where a “dirty tradie” can go to eat if McDonalds is suddenly too high brow? Dont see many change roms and showers on building sites so I guess they can just sit in the back of the bus.

They could always use the drive through – then on to a shady spot under a tree, or the outdoor eating area? Or perhaps stop in the carpark and take a few moments to kick some of the mud off before going in? Or perhaps take a few seconds next to a tap at a servo to wash the worst of it off their feet? There are 101 things these guys could do before going into a Macca’s … or any other restaurant/take away or similar. Surely these guys take the time to wash their hands before eating, so it stands to reason that a few extra seconds to address mud caked on boots should not be a problem either. They would not be allowed into a pub/club for a counter meal with mud caked on their boots. Why should a Macca’s ‘restaurant’ be any different?

Best part of this? Arse finger.

Arsefinger!
He’s the man, the man with the arse of gold!
His burger’s cold!

And somehow that relates to this thread:

Yep all those low-class people who actually get dirty feet while working should be issued with ballet slippers at the entrance to every Macca’s – unless, of course, they happen to have brought their best dress shoes to the building site with them.

There sure are some snobs in this town. It’s Maccas FFS, not the Hyatt. You know, where kids smear food over every surface and there are no waitstaff.

Last time I was in Maccas, a Yummy Mummy spilled coffee in a long trail right across the floor. She saw it, but kept going. So, I mentioned in to one of the pimploids and they immediately mopped it up.

She was wearing very clean shoes, though, so no worries.

Breda, sorry, but you’re a knob and missing the point entirely. If I was a snob I wouldn’t be eating at Maccas and would probably be at the Hyatt.

Try reading the posts properly and get off your high horse.

If you have problems with somebodys muddy boots at Macdonalds then you are worse than just being a snob.

I was in a maccas in QLD about 6 months ago when some hi – vis boys came in still drinking their stubbies , and got served no problems

In Queensland it`s illegal to enter Maccas without a beer in hand. Section 152 of the QLD crimes act 1997. Look it up.

I looked it up, and it actually says “XXXX”, not “beer”.

This comment relates to the hi-viz guys I saw in Gungahlin Maccas a couple of months ago. About 8 of them sat near us and took up the entire long table at one section of the store. They were all filthy dirty and covered in sweat & dirt, and their boots in big clods of mud. They totally trashed the area (nothing new there, I guess) and departed the store leaving mud and dirt all over the section where they’d been. Ages of the workers ranged from very young to about 50. No consideration for other people. Sure, they have a right to eat but really need to at least remove their boots before entering the store.

Yes! how disgusting of them to be out working all day in the sun, building things in our city, like say all those fuckin ugly houses in Crace or the Stupid tall apartment towers of Belconnen, Woden, and Civic and its surrounding suburbs? Fixing roads, fixing homes, building parks and car parks and when they are hungry you want them to go hide themselves because god forbid they go into a freaking McDonalds – because we all know kids are so clean in McDonalds. aren’t they?. Truly sickening to read this kind of stuff, putting shit on men who are out working from Dawn till Dusk while you either sit in a air conditioned office or at home on your arse finger painting with your kids. Which one is it oh person of such high distinction that you cannot see dirt covered working men in the street or begrudge them trying to eat what food they can get in their breaks from building the city you live in. ???

Contrary to popular tradie opinion, some professionals that “sit in a air conditioned office” have been known to work hard. Maybe if you had applied yourself more in high school you would be working (or sitting) amongst them, instead of labouring in the dirt and sun from dawn till dusk.

You have just described half the people that live in Gungahlin.

It’s no secret that McDonald’s cater to the lowest common denominator. If you wish to dine amongst polite society reserve a table at Aubergine.

If you lie down with dogs, you’ll end up with fleas…

Throwing glass bottles out of moving car or wearing muddy boots into a shop and leaving the mess for someone else to clean up – it doesn’t matter. Both are indicative if a lack of respect for our environment and other people, which I believe is the point of the OP.

Lack of respect for the environment and other people (specifically me in this case) is pretty much it. And I’m sorry to hear from KB that he’s experienced this crap on his bike. It must be bloody frightening.

I thought about calling the cops, but envisaged that it would end up with this scenario:

Me: This clown threw a beer bottle on the road in front of my car.
Police: Mr Clown, did you throw a bottle on the road?
Clown: Certainly not officer, that’s an absurd allegation, I I would never dream of doing such a thing!
Police; Mr LSWCHP, do you have a photo or other proof?
Me: Nope.
Police: Both of you run along then so that I can continue polishing my truncheon.

So no, I didn’t report it because I thought it would be futile, which makes me sad and angry. It was just an astounding and disgusting thing to do.

Not having a go at you LWSCHP, but we should all report these things, because these bastards will keep doing it until someone like KB get seriously hurt. Cops are like the rest of us…some can’t be bothered and some go out of their way to achieve a result.

The throwing of things at me is rare but it has happened. They are all gutless wonders though because when I have motioned them to pull over & we will discuss it they drive off. Could have something to do with my sudden contraction of tourettes syndrome……

I don’t ride Adelaide ave because of the glass, the drivers I can deal with but the delays because of flats is a PITA. They don’t sweep it often.

What really pisses me off though is the drips who smash them on the cycle path. The flats are a PITA but its the thought of someone in thongs (think of the children) copping a shard of bottle glass through the foot. Remember, glass bottles are not tempered and can smash in shards unlike a car window that breaks into small angular pieces that are less dangerous, especially if you step on them.

Disclaimer: I do have better tyres now to avoid the flats but they have taken .001 of a second off my trip time…….

to let them know that I have a child in the rear of the car and that they should be more responsible

How is having a child in the rear of your car relevant? Are you saying their actions would be OK if you didn’t have a child in the car?

My point, maybe not so well made, is that you have no idea who is driving another car, their ability or what is even going on in their car. So everyone should consider that when they drive like a moron, they may be harming more people than themselves, including innocent children nicely seated in their safety seats believing that Mummy will get them home safe and sound.

If harassed (by moronic drivers) I will invoke the Mother Moose defence – come near or harm my child and I’ll harm you.

Is that Mother Moose or Mother Goose?

Moose, Goose, who cares? Geese are pretty cranky too, but what does it matter what I am when I’m ripping you apart because you harmed my child? I jest of course…

Sorry, please redirect your rant to chewy14, he is ‘taking one for the team’ and assuming full responsibility for the rest of us inferior males.

As far as the dirty boots go, if maccas are willing to admit them and serve them then cleaning up after them is maccas choice and responsibility.

Exactly. The only ‘dirty workers’ the cops might even slightly interested in might be those visiting the Fyshwick or Mitchell maccas.
