Re: “27 days of noodles in the pokey

"You wanna watch Lockdown WHILE your on lockdown?"

This is Pulitzer-level writing. Even with the bad grammar.

At any rate, this person did not need to spend 27 days in lockup over traffic tickets. Seriously. They also didn't need to be yanked around on the amount. The writer is right, he do have to believe that the police are serious about the job and working in the public's best interest. If even half this story is made up, the other half is bad enough to warrant a look at how the police handle this sort of thing.

How about you pay your taxes like the rest of us? And on time? And stop crying because you got caught. Its YOUR responsibility. Not anyone else's. Grow up.

Re: “27 days of noodles in the pokey

Hey, I have an idea! In the future, pay your tickets so you don't go to jail! Where have you been parking, on the SIDEWALKS? Did you really think they were just going to go away? Charleston doesn't play, if you didn't know this!

Re: “Old man gets a helping hand

that was very kind of her and the big guy for takeing time to help the old man it is sad to say you dont hear are see to many people trying to help others. so it is good to know that we do still have people around who take the time out to help others when needed. May God Bless the lady store employee & the big guy that helped the old man.

Re: “Trumpet tooting locavores wear parachute pants

Just planted my small but fruitful illegal garden at my apartment complex. By illegal I mean its against the complex rules. They way I see it is there is an ugly patch of nothing in front of my door where a bush once grew many years ago. I planted 4 tomato plants some sweet peppers, basil and a few other herbs. I share with my grateful neighbors and have a few items stolen each year, but I'm OK with that. Its funny when someone says "wow why do your (insert veg here) taste so different from the kind I get at the store" I say "oh you mean the ones that were picked 3 weeks ago and shipped here from Argentina?"

Re: “Bank beau saves the day after card crime

i'm inclined to believe it was someone at Walmart. same thing happened to me last year at a free-standing ATM. apparently the jack-holes who don't work for a living invested in a little machine called a skimmer, which not only records your card number, it can also record your pin when you punch it in... then, 'they' went to 3 different Walmarts (where i never shop) and with the help of accomplices at the three stores, took out cash - $200 each transaction... i, too got my money back - thank you very much Carolina First! these common thieves should have the snot beat out of them and then be jailed. i work hard for my money, why can't they? i will now never again use my debit card anywhere but at my bank. lesson learned - thanks, criminals.

If you do find him, tell him to go back to Ohio and to take you and Toledo Native with him! Charleston is saturated.

Re: “Driving woes yield nasty note prose

@ the note leaver, your a rock star assassin! @ this post, your a shitty driver I'm sure, but don't worry because you have 1000's of shitty driver company out there. Try a turn signal. Try coming to a complete stop at a stop sign and not yielding. Try not yapping on the phone while you drive badly. Leave 5 minutes earlier so you don't have to speed and weave in and out of traffic. Try not waiting to the last second to cut in front of someone to make your turn or exit. Try public transportation and see how good you have it!

Re: “Driving woes yield nasty note prose

Most likely, your driving and/or parking habits endangered the life or, at the very least, the property of this person who you pissed off enough for them to take the time to post the note. The fact that you are self-centered enough to consider posting your objection in the City Paper, rather than being more considerate of other drivers, as a response to the note clearly show what a moron you are. Yes, the note poster did waste their time leaving a note, as it is clear you lack the mental capacity to understand it.

Re: “Driving woes yield nasty note prose

I know how the note writer felt. U C, I think I should get an award for all the bad drivers I've written citizen traffic violation tickets 4. There are driving habits that drive me crazy. Like leaning into turns. WTF? There are people who have to lean way over when they turn the wheel. Even if the roads curves just a little, they lean like it's try-outs for the Jamaican Bobsled Team. I mean, what do these people do when they're in a subdivision? "Put on a crash helmet, Martha, it's a cul-de-sac."

Re: “Driving woes yield nasty note prose

You should count yourself lucky for only getting a note. I'd bet that most people who take the time to get out of their car and find the bad driver who peeved them off would do a lot more than write down their thoughts. Put down the compact/eyeliner, pay attention, and learn your lesson from this.

Re: “Driving woes yield nasty note prose

Did you consider that maybe they were parked next to you? Although, i do often hunt around parking lots for crappy parking jobs in my free time just to get my jollies.... Just sayin'.

Re: “Driving woes yield nasty note prose

Perhaps you should address the reason why he felt it necessary to leave such a note. You're not the victim; the other person was.
