I remember a co-worker from Louisiana at one point telling me that drunk driving was about as prevalent there as, well... drinking.

Yes we have a big problem with drunk driving down here and the sad thing is most of the people can't drive right when they are sober. One of the two things I don't like about down here traffic and the other is the food.

If it had been a cop who had been drunk driving, the house would have been cited for failure to yield.

Fark Rye For Many Whores: we're a lighthouse your call


Done in two.

I got in an accident in HS where I was driving on a main road and someone pulled out of a parking lot and into the side of my car.  Thankfully a witness stopped - just to make sure I was okay, but she stuck around after the other driver started ranting about how I pulled out in front of her.  I mean... I was on a major road.  She was coming from a parking lot.  She turned into the side of my car.  Yet was livid that it was my fault.

Learning from a young age that people can be thoroughly convinced their version of reality is true, no matter how much evidence that it isn't is shoved in front of their face, if that version of reality exonerates or benefits them was a very good thing.

The food is one of the things I miss.

Don't miss all the drunk driving though. It really is way, way too common down there. Total lack of decent public transportation accounts for a lot of that.

Oh, and there's also the fact that cab service down there sucks. They take forever to show up, a lot of them still don't accept credit cards, and on holidays they get so overbooked it's sometimes impossible to even get one.

CSB, on a four lane road close to where I live is a house that has a huge "Psychic" sign in the front yard, advertising her business. About once a month for a very long time, I'd drive by and see accidents where a car went into her front yard. Took out the sign numerous times, took out the front side of the house, took out the brick wall. She placed telephone poles at the edge of the property until one car launched over them, slamming into the brick wall, narrowly missing the house. I still have no idea why that intersection had so many accidents, it was pretty crazy and I am always very cautious when entering, even on a green light.

Now you would think with all of those psychic powers she possessed, that she'd have known these things would happen. You'd think she'd put up a better barrier between her and the street, or she never would have moved there in the first place. I just know that if I ever wanted to find a real psychic, I'd avoid that house.

I've been hit by a drunk driver while in my own bedroom before. Amazed that all I had was a large cut on my arm and one hell of a bruise on my leg. Here's a picture of the room afterwards: http://pbr55.photobucket.com/albums/g152/lousyskater/truck1.jpg

I was sitting at my desk along the wall where the truck plowed through. Sent me flying into the bedroom door on the other side of the room, breaking it in half.

In the neighborhood where I grew up, road A sloped downhill to a "T" intersection with road B. The house on road B where road A tee'd was always winding up with cars in their front living room--drunk people, people losing control on the ice, you name it. The homeowners went to a local quarry and purchased a HUGE limestone boulder (maybe 5 ft by 5 ft by 5 ft) and set it in their front yard. Problem solved.

25 years later, the boulder is still in the front yard, and still comes to good use, so to speak.

I chased a drunk driver after the bastard hit me on the interstate and fled. Jesus must really exist and have plans for me because most people get totally farked when rear ended at 60 mph. I'm lucky I didn't get shot being that alota of the criminal class carries illegal guns in NOLA.

I've always wondered why some folks are able to justify their point of things.

Auto accidents where the faulty party is convinced they are in the right - My wife explains to the police "I saw the car backing out of the parking lot, so I stopped about 5 car lengths back. He kept backing up, I hit the horn, but he hit me anyway." The other guy's story to the police "I back my car up, I back up, I back up, I back up, I hear horn... BAM!" He was honestly surprised to find out he had to pay for our repairs.

Gym equipment - While doing circuit training, I will ALWAYS find people of a certain ethnicity sleeping on one of the machines. I'll wait, but eventually I'll have to wake them up and ask if I can work in. I'm always met with looks of indignation and suggestions like "Machine over there.. Use that!" But when I want to do military press, for example, they point to an ab machine. All I can guess is that when they go home they complain to their family "This guy kept wanting to use the machine I was on. I was just SLEEPING there!" I really can't imagine how one can justify that. But they do.

I hear that from a lot of people about the food and I don't get it. It seems like a lot of the food was at one point desperation food eaten to stay alive. I am guessing one had to grow up on the food or maybe it is all the seafood that everyone is talking about which I wouldn't know about since I do not eat seafood. I grew up in Iowa so I am corn, potatoes, onions and beef kind of guy.

Yes to the cab problem I completely agree. What I have done in the past is to get a hotel downtown within walking/crawling distance of the clubs and even if you do need a cab if you are already down town they are pretty good about getting there quickly, still need cash though.

Yea, the problem is definitely you then. You should consider trying some new things... really, there are few things on earth more fantastic than BBQ shrimp. You should try the BBQ shrimp poboy at Pascal's Manale. I think it's a lunch only thing, but it's... heavenly.

I recall them in Florida. Not such a big deal...just a faster way to grab a bottle of whatever. Now when I was a kid, they had drive-through bars, Where you could drive away with the cocktails of your choice to drink on the way home.

Drove by that house earlier today and was thinking wtf??? Mystery solved I guess.

I used to drive a cab here (Nola) and the lack of taking credit cards drove me nuts. I hated telling people that we didn't have the ability. Of course I could pay for the card machine myself if I wanted. I ha a couple of people just Paypal me. One guy paid 50.00 for a 5.00 can ride and I emailed to send the overpayment back and he said to keep it because I was honest and didn't try to rip the tourist off. I got a lot of repeat business and tourist referrals because I wouldn't overcharge or find ways to rip people off.

well, we're talking about the kind of douchebag who has a PICKUP TRUCK with a large AERODYNAMIC WING on the TONNEAU COVER.

step 1, take utilitarian vehicle with brick-like airflow
step 2, remove utility by adding hard-to-store cover that eliminates most cargo area
step 3, "because wings are badass", add a completely useless wing to said cover in the area of most turbulent airflow.

his entire life has been one "Hey Y'all, watch this!" after another.

Yup. I didn't hear the whole story but the daughter living across the way from us was having a hard time understanding that she was at fault for backing into the car going down the street. (Yes, she's Chinese.)

I haven't had any that bad but I have had a woman who kept coming despite my honking. She heard my horn, she just thought I was honking at her for being rude and backing out in my way. Dingbat, I was honking because you were backing straight towards the side of my car and I didn't have time to get out of your way.

Here in NM, my son said he got checked a couple times at DUI checkpoints. I've never seen one. When I drink, I do it at home. You see these PSAs it can cost up to 10k, so don't do it. I was at work one day, read on the news that a guy was passed out at light, truck in gear arrested on 16th DUI. Coworker said " In NM, he's just getting started."
