Anti-Blow

After the HEAVY shovelling to get my beast of a car out, I will NEVER EVER bitch about space saving.

Ever.

I under-fucking-stand.

I get it.

(This is my second city of Chicago winter, and last year well, we didn't really have a storm of the same ilk as we just had.)

This is just a note to the five or six couples that bumped into me while walking down Broadway today.

When there is just a little narrow patch of shoveled walkway which allows one person each way to walk down, you CAN let go of your girlfriend. She is NOT going to float away and disappear. You can walk in front of her, she can walk in front of you, whatever. Just let other people pass. Be courteous.

Thank you.

A few words from the Mod!

For those of you that want to bitch and moan about people "saving" parking spots in the winter (after they do the work to shovel it out), here are a few kind words for you:

Fuck off.

Seriously.

I grew up in one of Chicago's greatest neighborhoods (Bridgeport), and every winter people would make sure to park IN FRONT of their own building so when they shoveled out their car... they would have THEIR space. I used to see everything from traffic cones & milk crates all the way to old couches being used to hold a spot. It's something we did. And god forbid anyone try to park there that wasn't a family member that already had the ok. It's the right we have. You don't like it. MOVE.

As hoodcity said, it's a tradition that only us that were born and raised here would understand.

Yes, I have seen people beaten up for such offenses. Is that wrong? Not in the least.

Now they I live in this fucking hell hole we call "the north side", the winter takes on a whole new meaning. I was knocking the snow from the car today & taking my time to shovel a bit around the spot (pretty much doing the job for someone else to park there) and some yuppie asshole had the balls to pull up and honk his horn. He called me over and actually asked me how much I was going to shovel so he could park there when I moved with no problem. I told him to go fuck himself & he still sat and waited. So did what anyone else that grew up the way I did would do.... I started shoveling the snow and throwing onto his car.

I can't wait to be back living on the south side in a few months. Everyone on the northside (mostly the fucking transplants) fucking suck.

Ok.

If you live in Chicago, learn how to bloody drive in the snow.

This is nothing new people! It snows EVERY year, contrary to popular belief (or perhaps unpopular). You'd think after living through a winter or two or ten here, one might use that facinating thing called a brain and learn that it's not REALLY nessesary to drive 15 miles under the speed limit when no one is even in front of you, just because it snowed two days ago. Nor do you have reason to do idiotic things, that you normally woudln't do if there wasn't an ouce of snow on the ground.

The streets have been plowed, it hasn't snowed since then. They are clean, drive as normal (And be thankful that your city not only cleans almost all roads after a major snow storm, but many sidewalks too!).

Of course the presence of plowed snow might make the streets a bit narrower and less accessable, but come on guys! It's not as if you don't already live in a city where many streets are narrow with the curbs packed with parked cars. And yes I do take into account the vistors, and the toursists, and the people who recently moved from non snowy areas. But I highly doubt that this city is so full of tourists and new residents that unseasoned drivers make up the majority (unless you're in from the far out suburbs).



Get over yourselves and get over your cars, people, and just drive.


kthxbye.

I just recently moved here in September. So I don't know, maybe this is what ALL Chicago snow cone trucks do, but...

IS IT NORMAL FOR THEM TO BE OUT IN DECEMBER?? I mean, come on... who the fuck is going to buy a snow cone in December?

Stupid Lisa Garbage Face.

I've been living in the same house in Oak Lawn for about 23 years now. I've never had a problem with traffic in my neighborhood (even though I do live right off of one of the most congested intersections in the Chicagoland area). For some reason, out of the blue, the village decided to make EVERY GOD DAMN STREET around my house either a one way street or a dead end. Now, if I want to go to or from my house I have to go AT LEAST three or four blocks out of my way just to get to the major intersection that is literally half a block from my front door. Not to mention that this new route I have to take brings me past the Metra tracks. Oh yeah, and starting in a couple of months, Metra will be running 30 trains a day across those tracks instead of the 15 a day that run now.

Also, the big bright yellow Dead End signs all over my neighborhood are a really nice touch. It would be such a shame if someone vandalized them. Tonight.

Hey DePaul Fuckwits!

Hey Fuckwits at DePaul:

That Dominick's on Fullerton is not your personal study space. You pay $20K a year for a very fancy one down the street called the library. Dominick's has set up that little dining area so you can sit your ass down between classes and grab a quick bite. Those gigantic tables that are meant for four people are not there for you to buy a measly fucking bottle of water and then set up camp for the day.

Why the hell would you come to a busy, crowded grocery to study anyway? No wonder you're a fifth year senior.

In fact, let's open this up to all college students: Everyone hates you and you aren't special. Some people actually go to places like Starbuck's and Dominick's to buy food and consume it. And we reeeeallllly hate it when you jizzsuckers think that your academic privilege somehow extends to taking up great swathes of space that could be used by paying customers. And if you insist upon doing this, couldn't you at least buy one item for every hour you take up instead of nursing that 50 cent soda for the entire day?

The only time I will make an exception is if you are one of the only people in the shop and it's a slow day. Then you can lounge to your hearts content since you aren't interferring with the other customers.

Stamped

I saw you motherfucker

To the asshole in Bridgeport who rear ended that dude on 35th last night and took off. What the fuck’s wrong with you? You don’t stop even though you’re coming up on a stop sign and there’s a car stopped in front of you, and then you take off after you slam into the other guy's rear bumper? Idiots like you shouldn’t be allowed to drive (and I wouldn’t be at all surprised to find out you don't even have a license).

I know the people you hit chased after you, and I hope that A) they got your tag number and called the cops, or B) chased you down and beat your ass. Either option works for me.

Salty tears.

I hate people who complain about things to me. I'm not going to pretend that I don't complain. Quite the contrary actually. I hate a lot of things (and people) and I'm not afraid to open my mouth about it. I'm complaining right now. I just don't want to sit around pretending like I'm interested in listening to anyone else's problems. Especially when they are ridiculously trite.
