that's crazy talk
 
2007-12-17 01:12:17 PM  
Umm, dude, that's not a poutine stain...
 
2007-12-17 01:12:54 PM  
Nothing new -- I grew up in Buffalo and the mall parking lots are always littered with bags & shoe boxes, so the new stuff doesn't look new when the Canadians cross the border. It's probably even worse now with the USD being so weak.

We should always remember to yank the tags, peel off the new mielage stickers and shotgun every drop we can't hide in the spare wheel well.

American malls collecting tons of beer and poutine-stained clothing left behind by Canadians, who change into newly-bought ones to avoid paying taxes at border


Dear submitter,

That should be "beer- and poutine-stained clothing", to show that the articles of clothing have been stained by both.

Take off, eh!

Old news. I grew up in a Port Huron, MI a little town right across the river from Sarnia, Canada. After the mall had closed for the day there would be tennis shoes all over the parking lot, looked like landmines everywhere. I have seen Canadians change their oil in the parking lot and let the oil run right into the sewer, and I have seen Canadians stash liquor on their children in the baby seat to smuggle it back across the bridge. I use to work at a store that would get a lot of Canadian customers, I would watch them hide their items in their car all the while making jokes about it. I would go back into the store and call border patrol to tell them to keep a look out for this car and license plate number.

very old trick. 25 years ago, mom used to make sure we get our new shoes a little bit dirty before crossing the border from bellingham.

/that was back before the "new-shoe sniffing dogs"

And Americans hide/smuggle all the wine, liquor and Cuban cigars they brought back from Canada. Nothing like supporting your neighbor.
 
2007-12-17 01:16:54 PM  
they're leaving beer behind?
 
2007-12-17 01:17:21 PM  
Ever found four old tires just sitting in a parking lot? Empty case of beer?

/This was more useful 10 years ago when the US dollar was worth something.

WHY? Do you get like five bucks per snitch? I'd hold out for at least eight.

LOL. What a piece of shiat, you are. At least when you're on your death bed you'll be able to cherish those fond memories of sitting on hold with boarder patrol to try and squeeze $8 in tax out of some family who was SPENDING MONEY IN YOUR STORE, and thus keeping you employed.

Do you run an HOA now or something? WTF?

/never smuggled my purchases, I just outright tell the cops the amoutn. If it's less than $200, they usually think it's more trouble than it's worth to do the paperwork.

Yeah, I really hope this is a troll, because otherwise this poster is subhuman. Then again, a troll isn't human as well. Lose-lose for this thing.

I was going to rag on Onkle Buck for being such a tool of the "wanna be a cop" but I see that has already been taken care of.

No boy-scout badge for "Vigilance".

BTW, I think those duties are in place to make MY government money, not yours.

Well, I guess that if YOU say it's the end of the story, it must be.

Can I play that game too? You are a slimy toad for reporting people who committed a de minimis infraction (use wikipedia, genius) that harmed absolutely no one. End of story.

Hey, that was fun!

Last time I crossed back from the Falls, I stopped at the Duty Free where a case of Absolut liters was $120.

I told the store mamger there was no was I could bring a case back into the US and he said, "Trust me. They're looking for things a bit more dangerous than cases of Absolut."

He doesn't see it that way, how could he pass up an opportunity to shiat on someone else AND feel like a good little citizen at the same time.

So what's all this business with duty anyways? I thought NAFTA was supposed to take care of that crap? Or is NAFTA only for corporations, not little people like you and me?
 
2007-12-17 01:43:15 PM  
By "internet touch guys", presumably you meant internet tough guys.
But you dont need to confront any such tough guys. Instead, hold your head up, proud to be counted among the Quislings and Petain, and, for that matter all of Vichy France.
The best part of you must have run down your mother's leg, ya gutless wonder.
