Heh! Maybe in the jails you've, um, "visited." But what you say is mostly
true for "inside" trustees like cooks and administrative workers.
Around here, outside trustees are not supervised. They check-out a mower or
a set of wrenches in the auto shop and are told to be back for lunch. "Yes,
boss" is the approved answer and they virtually never fail to return.
As an aside, most outside trustees are those convicted of manslaughter,
occasionaly murder. The theory is that someone convicted of a crime that
took place in the heat of the moment (i.e., manslaughter) is basically a
rule-follower and that if the circumstances surrounding his original crime
are not present, he'll follow the rules (law). Conversely, those in the
slammer for burglary, armed robbery, and the like, planned their crime and
have no moral hesitation regarding an additional infraction.
When I was but a whee lad my dad's camping trailer came off the hitch on
a mountain highway. The safety chains detached from the trailer and
after missing all other traffic it disappeared over the side of the
highway. We were able to get access to it on a service road below and
strapped all of the gear and broken pieces to the frame and headed back
Dad took the manufacturer to court and won... We got enough money to
replacement camping gear, and a new trailer. when my dad went to pick up
the trailer the manufacturer handed him the safety chains and said, "you
can install them!"
Even so, it can still come off... had an empty trailer come off on me
once while making a right turn onto a busy street. Dumbass me let the
truck rental place guy put it on rather than doing it myself, because I
figured he'd done it plenty more times. Guess he didn't tighten it down
enough. Oddly, after I attached it myself I drove it hundreds of miles
before turning it back in without it coming off once. If you want
something done right, sometimes...
replace "roosters" with "cox" to reply.
yes, both are true statements. I turned out of the parking lot onto a
busy main street.
What a pathetic, bland existence you must have.
replace "roosters" with "cox" to reply.
hey, it's twoo, it's twoo. I also reconnected the trailer in the left
turn lane of said street (I want to say it was Lorain Ave., but memory
of events occurring 10+ years ago isn't the greatest) at the next
intersecton, while giving my girlfriend on-the-fly lessons in backing
up a moving truck and following hand signals (because I figured that
since she had never before *either* driven a moving truck or hitched
up a trailer, that manhandling the tongue of the trailer was probably
the job that I was better suited for) not that it's pertinent to the
point that I was making, namely "it doesn't matter how many times
someone's done something, if you're driving the rig, check it yourself
anyway." (clear message - I trusted someone else to do something
right, didn't check it, and got put in a bad situation that could have
been much much worse than it was because that one time I didn't double
check.) As an aside, and in support of a point that another poster
made in this thread, the safety chains *were* crossed and not too
long, which was fortunate. The tongue settled onto the safety chains
and didn't dig into the road, nothing broke, etc.
Now what if I'd posted the name of the company from whom I rented the
truck, or some other detail, and misremembered it? I can see you
doing a little happy dance in your dank, messy basement slash usenet
reading area because you finally "caught" me in a "lie." I guess with
an existence as evidently miserable as yours you need to get your
joyous moments however you can, although that is pretty sad.
when you apparently have enough free time to try to "fact check" posts
to Usenet to try to catch people you don't like contradicting
themselves merely because you've taken a dislike to them... yeah.
You *must* have a pretty pathetic, bland existence. And you're
creepy. And not real bright, if you think that somehow "as I turned
right out of the parking lot" and "as I turned onto a busy street" are
No, they're inconsistent.
"As I was turning out of the parking lot" does not seem as if it would
be a detail omitted from a true story.
Remember when you misremembered that you've worn glasses since the 4th
grade, then reported you'd passed an eye exam "with flying colors"...?
You're a liar. There no sense pretending you're not.
WTF? not inconsistent at all. I was turning right, out of the
parking lot, onto a busy street. It's entirely possible to do all
three things at the same time.
WTF? Do you want to know what I was wearing at the time also?
(probably jeans, a T-shirt, and work boots, but I can't exactly
remember. Might have been wearing shorts. I know that it was f'ing
hot out. Oh, I forgot to mention that, too.) I wasn't aware that I
needed to post explicit detail about everything that happened before
you'd believe me. Oh, wait, I don't care whether you believe me or
not. I *do* care that you're a creepy stalker, and I wish you'd knock
it off. I also care that you are an idiot who lowers the average IQ
of a room by double digits whenever you walk in the door, so it'd be
nice if you'd STFU and stick to topics that you actually know
something about, but previous experience has led be to believe that
that's too much to hope for.
WTF? Obviously I was wearing my glasses when I took the exam,
otherwise I wouldn't have a driver's license, dipshit. A reasonable
person would know what I meant, and that's who I write for, not idiots
WTF? You're just making stuff up in a pathetic, transparent attempt
to make it appear that I'm lying, but you're not even good enough at
cherrypicking to make anyone actually believe you. You're pathetic
Sure. Liars like yourself base their stories on plausibility.
If you'd just fueled up and didn't/barely made it out of the station I
don't think you'd omit that detail the 100th time you related it...
Red herring. Irrelevant circumstance.
Right. A "complete vision exam" occurs with the examinee wearing
Making stuff up...? Like you reporting to be employed and having all
day every day to post to Usenet?
And that just one of your dozen nyms.
The important point is that I didn't check the hitch *myself* and
lived to regret it.
That is the point that I was trying to convey.
I believe that everyone understood that point, except for you.
The one that you have to take when you move into the state and/or
renew your license most definitely does.
Sure, I spend "all day every day" on Usenet. And then you whine if I
don't answer every one of your snipey little screeds. Here's a clue,
Sparky - you're a punching bag. A known k00k. People take you
exactly as seriously as such luminaries as Aunt Judy and Carl
Troller. You're a pathetic little dried-up dog turd on the sidewalk
of Usenet; a not that exciting toy occasionally to be dragged out for
amusement purposes only. Accept it, move on.
I'm glad you have finally accepted that. I suppose it's too much to
ask that now that you realize that you have a problem, that you limit
your posts to those subjects of which you have actual knowledge?
Yeah, well, perhaps they don't know full of shit you are.
You've worn glasses since 4th grade and think those 30 seconds
comprise a "complete vision exam"...?
I know. When the fuck would you get any employment done?
You mean citing you...?
