Admin was parked on the Northeast Extension for 30 minutes this morning due to an accident that blocked both lanes for two hours. The frustration began to build.

Then he made it to the Schuylkill Expressway and it was gridlock. Now Admin was really getting pissed off.

After finally making it into lovely West Philly, he attempted to make his normal left turn onto 36th street.

But there he was behind a school bus with its red lights blinking. Not only was this bus picking up a kid, but it was picking up a disabled wheelchair bound kid with the special lift. Do you know how long it takes to get a kid in a wheelchair onto a school bus?

My Friday trek to work, which normally takes 45 minutes, took 90 minutes. I feel sorry for the department that has to present their FY14 budget to me at 9:30 this morning. This is how I will arrive at the meeting.

And now I have this weekend to look forward to as I slog through my overly complicated tax return and try to write an article for you shit throwing monkeys. I recommend that no one disagree with me today.

    I know absolutely how you feel. I work in a large metropolis that sucks, too, and was never designed for the people who work there to live or travel or park there. Traffic every day, even on weekends, is a nightmare. People also drive like morons so you tend to see multiple accidents on all highways and major roads several times every rush hour. I want to get one of those dashcams like the Russians use to record some of the idiots I see every day.

    You ever see that insurance commercial that shows all the stupid things people do to cause accidents, like driving their car with their bikes on top into a garage, smashing the garage door, or the guy who cuts a huge tree branch and smashes his neighbor’s car? I see that stuff.
    I actually saw the guy with the mattress flopping around on top of his car from the ad driving down I95 at full speed. He had NJ plates on, too, so he may have driven a loooong way with his bed attempting to escape into the wild blue yonder. Damn thing looked like a cheap Toyota with a giant soft taco on top.

    Another morning, I was driving down a stretch of empty road that sort of drops down into a valley and makes a sort of S-curve. It’s enjoyable to drive if you’re not behind the kind of idiot who rides his brakes. The pavement was damp from an early morning summer rainstorm, but the roads were fine and safe, yet on the shoulder of the opposite lane, I saw an old, dingy faded white Jeep Eagle (automatically assume illegal alien when you see a crappy car in this area) flipped on its left side and the moron driver poking his head out of the passenger side door, like it was a trap door, looking at me. I laughed my head off for at least 5 minutes on my commute. I almost turned around to pass by and laugh some more. Scenes like that are why I need a dash cam.

    The commuter train is no better-last time I rode them, they were run by the French and worked so poorly, rain, wind, cold, heat, and even leaves on the track were sufficient to slow or halt them. Apparently, the continuous welded rails they now use warp in the heat or cold, get wet in the rain, and leaves make them slippery. The part I can’t understand is how you can screw up the rail road, which isn’t exactly new technology. The train was invented, what, 10 or 15 years ago? Seriously, tho-what engineer didn’t think heat would buckle continuous rails?

    @Boston Bob: You bring back such happy memories of snowbound commutes on Rt.128 from Burlington and Lowell, South around town to the shipyards. Did that for three winters one time and was that fun.

    First thing I did was mount 4(four!) big red lensed lights across the back just inside the rear window and hooked them to a flasher under the dash. Flip the switch and you could see those puppies for 2 miles in a blizzard.

    I left as soon as I could – and have never gone back!


    PS: @Admin: Meh! Lighten up.. It’s not like you’re the only one to get pissed in a commute. Of course you have a great platform to bitch about it too! Carry on..

    We get a lot of dumptrucks on the road, too. They go wherever they want and do whatever they want. One morning, I watched 4 travel down the road in two groups of two together in formation, backing up traffic behind them and just having a good ol’ time screwing with the morning traffic.

    Another morning, I watched a dumptruck decide to change lanes in crowded traffic. He purposefully moved left, knowing there was an unbroken line of cars there, and forced a couple cars into oncoming traffic. I called the cops on that one, but their word was if they didn’t see it, they don’t care. The phone number on the truck was to a fake company-no such business.

    One afternoon, I watched a commuter bus decide to swerve into oncoming traffic to drive 400 yards up the road to where a turn lane started. Apparently, he didn’t want to wait an extra minute or two.

    Another morning, MY commuter bus driver, a new female one who was an obvious immigrant from somewhere south of the border, decided to completely leave her route-which is a straight shot up the highway-and inexplicably started driving around in a strange neighborhood, got completely lost, and couldn’t even figure out how to get back on the highway with all the massive signs and the giant on-ramp. The passengers had to yell instructions to her. Apparently, I was the only one to complain about being kidnapped and late to work-they pulled the driver and gave me free bus passes. Go me!

    JohnQ brings up a great point. I would like to know where it says schools must take in people who are incapable of learning to go through the motions of teaching them. I’ve heard every retard they take in is worth tons of money from the govt, but it really is a waste of time and resources to teach them what they can not learn. I wonder how many parents are desperately pretending their kid is “just like everyone else” and how many are just using the system as a babysitter so they can palm their kid off on someone else for a few hours.

    I read an article a year or two back about how unscupulous universities were starting “Special” programs so they could get in on the federal money act. The schools take in retards, put them in pointless classes, and after a few years they get a certificate of attendance! No diploma in any known or suspected area of study, but a piece of paper the recipient may not even be able to read stating they were there for a while. “”M-O-O-N,” that spells Imma colluj grajudate!”

    Talk about cheapening the value of a degree! Then again, it isn’t as if a lot of normal college students are much better off. If you go to school for 4 years and walk out with a BA in Gameboy or Applied Pornography or Witchcraft or Feminist Psychology, what does the future hold for you? You’ll be pushing a broom for Didlake with the retarded college grads. “Ged bak to work, noobey. Du yu dink dat floor will clean idself?”

    With nothing better to do, how long before the first retarded PhD is frocked?
    “Follo yur dureems! Iv yu will it, anyfing is pussibul! Hooray for me! Hooray for skool!!!”
    “America’s first retarded doctorate graduated from Harvard today. He has a bright future and has already received offers from the Dept. of Housing and Urban Development, the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the Environmental Protection Agency, and several offers to write his autobiography…”

    Once you overcome those odds, the road to politics and the whitehouse may be wide open for you.
    “America elected a developmentally disabled man president today. It was an incredible run, with lots of drama, but many Americans felt a mentally challenged candidate was at least more likely to be honest than the other contenders. Historians are challenging claims this is America’s first retarded president, citing the last three office holders as also being obviously “Special.”"

    In MA they have a requirement by law that students must attend school until 16. They have tried to make it 18 for all the talking point reasons. The main reason is declining enrollment in the urban systems. The teachers and administrators want to mandate attendence in order to keep their job.The unions were the ones pushing for mandatory education back in the 1920′s to eliminate competition from cheap child labor,not because they actually care about “The Children.” In fact most of the people who worked in the factory, had their children work in the same factory as soon as they were phisically able to. Also, many of the qualification for various types of welfare require that the youngster maintain school attendence. No attendence, no money. I know an administrator for a principal at a large urban high school here in MA and the calls they get from the mother when the “student” is expelled would make your ears burn.

    They are not “retards”.

    They are human beings with souls and feelings. All but the very most mentally disabled CAN be taught life skills. From what I’ve read, the businesses that do hire such people absolutely love them. They make wonderful employees.

    You know what a “retard” will never do? Stab you in the back, gossip, or cheat you. They are some of the most “pure” and loving people you will ever meet.

    If there is anyone worthy of governmental help it is the “least of these”.

    if you fail to educate a child, you end up with an effective retard, if you only have compulsory school to 6th grade as they do in mexico, you have a population that thinks nothing of electing the one-party candidate selected by the outgoing president. you have an education minister skimming funds from the education budget. you have cops that make LA’s old ramparts division look like boy scouts. in short, you have a criminal communist system, ok? much like where we are going.

    Sorry, Stucky. You can disagree with the term, but was what I said wrong? I never made a statement about retards per se, I merely criticized the idea of putting them in classes, eating up resources and our tax dollars when they’re not going to learn anything. Life Skills? OK, but I don’t see that as school’s duty-teaching you to survive sounds more like your parents’ job. If it’s true govt schools fight to get as much fed money as possible by having retards as students, then I think it’s wrong.

    And personally, I feel like retards and their parents are victimized by colleges who offer them enrollment. We’ve criticized colleges for screwing average people-but it’s OK if they enroll retards? I think it’s no different than when Phoenix and others suck up govt money from veterans and other suckers for no real value, placing them in debt for a degree of dubious value. I think it would be funny for the hungry kids graduating every year with worthless degrees to now find themselves competing for work with “special” employees who now earn their own “degrees.” That doesn’t seem ironic to you somehow?

    Personally, I think it’s funny how we have a cultural tradition of shortening names for things and people, i.e. A-Rod and RG-3 in prosports, I mean professional sports. Dick or Rick for Richard, NYC or Big Apple for New York, TRIBECA for Triangle Below Canal, cop for Constable On Patrol, NAVBUPERS for Navy Bureau of Personnel, ChiCom for Chinese Communist, NORK for North Korean, Nazi for National Socialist etc and that’s all right, but as soon as the same logic/lazy approach is applied to certain groups of people, it becomes a slur.
    Why are short names for things bad?

    i.e. retard, taken from the word, “retarded,” which according to Merriam-Webster, was coined in 1895 and was a medical term for someone, “slow or limited in intellectual or emotional development or academic progress.” That term was what they used when I was a kid. “Special” didn’t exist. (We also didn’t give prizes to all the kids who competed-just the winners, but that’s another rant.)
    Now some object to the use of a term that was perfectly acceptable and legitimately used by medicine to describe a particular person with mental problems. Why? Because the term can be shortened for ease of use? Because the term enters popular use by non-medical people?

    Am I wrong? Does changing the term change the physical reality of the thing being termed? Is there an actual difference between “retard” and “retarded,” aside from the amount of time it takes to type/say it? Does the person/group described by the term change? I don’t think so.
    I wonder how long before “SpecEd” or “Spec” becomes the term for “Special” people and then we have to all agree THAT is an offensive term and look for a new one. The search for nicknames and shortened terms will continue. Where’s George Carlin when you need him?

    BTW-interesting note. At one point, “Imbecile,” “moron,” and “idiot,” were all legitimate medical terms. Later, the public adopted them as insults. Remember the 3 stooges? At some point, those terms fell out of use. The people who were previously termed “Imbecile,” “moron,” and “idiot” didn’t go away-the terms were merely changed.

    When you really look at the terms that make people upset, it’s funny that they’re really just shortened versions of acceptable names.
    i.e. in WWII, we fought a nation of people located in Asia who, in their own language, called themselves Nipponese. We adopted that name for them, shortened it for ease of use, and called them “Nips” and now that’s a bad word. We also shortened the English name for them to “Japs” and that is also a bad word. Why? Are they different because we shortened it? Nope-they’re still Japanese.
    The Brits, um, I mean British (why is that OK?) call us “Yanks,” instead of Yankees. They’re pretty offensive as a rule, calling French “frogs” and the Germans “Jerrys.” We called them “Krauts” and their Italian allies, “I-ties.”

    There is some disagreement on the term, but according to some defintions, there was a term for immigrants arriving in the US 100 years ago, Without Papers, or W.O.P. The term was shortened to “wop” and was associated with the dominant immigrant group of the time, Italians, and became considered a slur. I don’t think that’s much different from the move to stop using “Illegal Alien” today. The person being discussed is still here illegally, but “illegal alien” is too offensive to describe them.

    Australians have their own offensive term for a group of people who were living in Australia when they arrived, “Abo.” As “Yanks,” we’re unlikely to see it as a slur, but to the Aborigines whose descriptive name was shortened, it is reportedly annoying. But when you think about it, isn’t it more convenient to take a 5 syllable 10 letter word and shorten it to 2 syllables and 3 letters? It doesn’t change who they are at all. Is the shortening disrespectufl?

    Thankfully, I can still call Russians “Russkis.” I hear some folks are offended by the term, but I suspect they’re not actually Russian, since in Russian, “Russki” is the word for Russian.

    In Iraq, U.S. soldiers used a term for Iraqis, “Hajji,” possibly derived from the old Johnny Quest cartoon. The funny part is, to liberal Americans, “Hajji” was also an offensive term. It was a short name for an ethnic group! To Iraqis, however, “Hajji” turned out to be a term of honor, meaning the person had completed the Haj to Mecca. So they didn’t mind. The fear of short names, however, led the Army to ban the use of the nickname.

    I find it amusing that short names for some things and groups makes people angry and upset, but others are OK. We have a culture that loves nicknames. Many cultures love nicknames. Alexander becomes Al-except for in Russian, where it’s Sasha. Elizabeth becomes Liz or Lisa. No one cares. I don’t think the urge to shorten names is intended to offend, necessarily, we just like to cut out words we don’t need. Is the familiarity of a nickname the offense?

    Shakespeare said, “A rose by any other name would smell just as sweet.” I would add a more offensive observation that a “Special” person would be as retarded in 2013 as he would have been in 1895 when the term was coined.

    it used to be that women who couldn’t take care of their children would take the ones they couldn’t handle down to the river and drown them. not enuf food, crippled, retarded, whatever. That is how nature works. See Darwin for longer explanation. We as a species are doing our genetic pool no damn good whatsoever by perpetuating the lives of those who can/will not do for themselves. Educating the unteachable is what is known as capital misallocation. If we applied social Darwinism to people/bad banks and businesses, we would all be much better off. We can either choose to do this on our own, or we can wait for nature to do it for us. Population die back in one form or another will occur. Notice the rates of autism…they are increasing drastically. So, we can take care of the 100 million people collecting .gov benefits and just keep adding more useless eaters until the middle class ceases to exist, or we can get with reality and fix the problem. Neuter welfare recipients after one fucking kid, and only abort the fetuses that are non-viable due to genetic defect. It would be better to do this before a full 50% of the population is drooling idiots of one form or another collecting off the public dole at the expense of a dwindling worker class. And retarded gimps rolling thru home depot for a paycheck that is subsidized by the government, which is you and me, is not fucking productive. I was at the home depot at the 95 and naamans road and heard the manager tell the gimp to leave him alone and just ride up and down the aisle, so don’t tell me they like those kind of employees for anything other than the government quota/subsidy.

    Well, my intent was to bait Admin, but I can see I baited both John Q AND AWD! HA-HA!!

    I’m learning, Stuck. Someday, I’ll be a master baiter, the same as you. Now, all I need to do is to perfect my doppling skills, and I’ll be one of the shit-throwing monkeys!

    You are playing with things, the danger of which your two neurons cannot comprehend. Better quit while you’re behind. Stuck will not save you either.

    Man, sometimes I wonder if my sarc meter is correctly calibrated.
    I also try to remember Mr. Twain’s comment about keeping your mouth shut so folks will have to only suspect you’re stupid.

    Thankfully, I didn’t go for that bait…nah, screw it.
    DEATH TO TIM!!!!

    “The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children. “
    ——– Dietrich Bonhoeffer

    “The measure of a civilization is how it treats its weakest members.”
    ——- Gandhi (and others)

    That’s what all schools do — prepare their students for Life Skills. For some, that means a calculus class. For others, it means they learn to tell time. You are willing to pay for one student, but not the other. Shame on you.

    I love your concern for how tax dollars are spent. $16 trillion in debt … a lot of it pure waste … but you’re worried about funding for the mentally disadvantaged? Hilarious. The military spends a trillion a year. Have you been to any anti-war rallies, you know .. to express your moral outrage? Lol

    You spent soooo much time trying to justify the word “retard”. It was a lame attempt. Everyone KNOWS that in today’s world “retard” is a pejorative. Just who in the fuck are you trying to convince? Yourself??

    I don’t know you, but your views are abhorrent. Almost, soulless. I wonder … when you look in a mirror, do you see a reflection?

    Got any quotes for over-emotional people responding in outrage to questions?

    I guess I touched a nerve, because I don’t think I mocked or insulted anyone.

    I thought I raised an interesting issue with the point about colleges moving from fleecing regular students to “special” ones. Your own quotes would seem to apply there, too.

    And I thought my look at language was also interesting, but you might have been too outraged to get it. Don’t you ever think language is interesting?

    maybe i added a bit of detail, sorry. but the truth is the guy was cruising for a bruising and i wanted to balance my sentence about the afterlife. i was refering to another nameless non- believer.

    Natural Born Killers (1994)
    Scagnetti: I was born and spent the first part of my life in Texas.
    Dwight McClusky: That’s funny, you don’t have the accent.
    Scagnetti: I don’t wanna talk like those assholes.
    Dwight McClusky: My mother was from Texas!
    Scagnetti: I meant those other assholes.

    Hmmm … from wheelchair to retards …

    I was a tutor at a TAFE college once; asked if I could assist a disabled student. Dunno … I’ll see how it goes. Young woman, cerebral palsy, speech impediment, motorized wheelchair. Took about a week to work out how she spoke, then no problem. Got her through her certificate and she went on to further education at another institution. A messed-up body but a bright mind. And determined.

    I LOVE language. I probably have a dozen books in my library on etymology.

    Most anyone who read your rant about “retards” can deduce from its context that you DID, indeed, mean it as a mocking insult. You insult all of our intelligence by continuing to deny it.

    And, yes, your desire to cast these people aside as “worthless” has touched a nerve. A person’s ‘worth’ is much much more than what they can contribute to the economy. On the plus side, you would have made a great Nazi.

    I am kind, benevolent, and forgiving (see above post as proof).

    Also, your Natural Born Killers dialogue was funny.

    Therefore, I shall let your faux pas slide … this time. Be more careful in the future, however.
