MaudlinMutantMollusk: Cop-like math detected


Came for this, leaving satisfied.

As a person that has walked past a Waffle House once, I am going to bet this is BS.

Might be the same kind of people that go into a pawn shop and demand 5K for a gold tinted Timex.

No there aren't.

WaHo prohibits guns on their property. Makes them a natural target for robbers.

/someone had to bring guns into the thread

You know who else lost $40,000 at a Waffle House?

Rule of thumb is to always add a few zeros to police reports and insurance claims when reporting the value of stolen property.

At any Waffle House I've been to you would be lucky if you stole all the personal belongings and cash, used all the credit cards to cash-out max, had the cars towed ad sold off and even came CLOSE to $40K in final dollar value. And that includes Uncle Clem's gold bridges and teeth.

Hopefully the cops and insurance company don't do the meth and wonder how you were able to afford the jewelry.

Went to visit my sister who moved to Greenville, S.C. a few years ago. On the drive down from N.Y. I kept passing these "Waffle Houses" and I made a promise to visit one while I was down there. We went on a Sunday, just before church got out. Still, a lot of folks there. Good sized and tasting waffle, eggs were OK...I didn't like the grits, and I had never had grits before. To be fair, I had them at...a Waffle House. I'm sure there's a decent way to make grits, and I would give them another go sometime, but the home-made version.

I used to work across the street from there!

scotchcrotch: comhcinc: The racism is strong in this thread.

You're right, it could be a bunch of caucasians with their baubels and diamonds that got robbed.


Are you implying that palefaces like me ain't allowed to have expensive jewelry?

Nothing wrong with Waffle House food. It's basic diner chow. The secret to grits is to load them down with butter, salt and pepper. Nobody eats grits plain.

Nah, it's legal, but it shouldn't be...

mbillips: Weird that the story named the victims, but didn't identify them. Ca$h Out is a rapper, although this appears to be a different guy than the Atlanta rapper of the same nickname. Usually if the victim isn't famous, they don't name them.


Is there an official rapper name registry, like with thoroughbred horses, the Screen Actors Guild, and clowns?

No. Disputes about ownership of a given name are settled through rap battles.

As much as I would love to hang out all night at Waffle House drinking coffee and doing some physics, I don't.  Too much crime.  Even at the Waffle Houses in "nice" areas (e.g., Buckhead and Brookhaven), I don't feel especially safe.  This article just reinforces my position.

TheDavidTM and thedavid are mine and have been since 1994, as is what I'm using now which I had to because some Farker previously stole my rightful login.

Why would anybody want to be confused with me anyway?

I'm going to get berated here but so be it.  I kinda like waffle house, their hashbrowns are good and inexpensive.  As are their waffles pancakes and eggs.  It is half the price and just as good if not better than ihop.  After dark the clientele might leave a bit to be desired but they are entertaining.   Most of them in my area have a 45 person capacity according to the seating and fire marshal signs though really it wouldn't be comfortable but 25 to 30 on a busy Friday night/Saturday morning wouldn't be unheard of.   If I've got my phone which is about $350, a couple hundred in my wallet not that unusual if I'm doing a weekend out on the town, and wearing jewelry  (which I typically don't )  I would have a $700 watch a ring at about $250 and a ring at about $800.   I might have a $1500 jade and silver armband and in theory could have other jewelry but its mostly female oriened so don't wear it.

I am going to go out on a limb here and suggest, just SUGGEST, that the victims in question do not carry a jewelry rider on their homeowner's policy.


My thoughts exactly.  Good luck getting a $20,000 check from the insurance company if you don't have a rider for that item.

Yeah, but sometimes you wanna have a bottomless cup of coffee and zero internet access to distract you.  Plus, I'm naturally a night owl.  I go stir-crazy at night.  I want to be out at night.

I need to check and see if I need a rider on my violin. It's not a Stradivarius, but it's no student instrument, either. Yikes.
 
2013-09-30 06:24:30 PM
I'd suggest this is why we should have an Atlanta tag, but after reading the headline it would be redundant.
 
2013-09-30 06:50:47 PM
If that includes gold teeth, then I'd absolutely believe the number.

Otherwise...which one of the patrons just stole $40k in jewelry before having a meal at Waffle House?
 
2013-09-30 07:46:07 PM
Anybody else note there is no description of the robbers?
 
2013-09-30 08:00:09 PM
This just in, after a robbery people often exaggerate the value of their property in hopes that they'll receive a higher payment from insurance companies.

[raises hand]  I do.  Of course, when I was a kid I preferred stuff like Cheerios, Grape Nuts, etc., so I'm definitely an outlier when it comes to any cereal-related statistical analysis.

I'm also a big Waffle House fan -  the hash browns in particular are worth the visit for me.  I find it really entertaining watching the cook having orders thrown at him from all sides and just handling it.  Having managed a busy pool hall with a very busy kitchen, I've really come to appreciate a good short-order cook that can keep his shiat together.

Relatively Obscure: ...a diamond-covered Rolex watch valued at $20,000 from Vincent Lamar "Cash Out" Robinson

I tried really hard to have sympathy, and then this happened.


Yeah, my guess was more along the lines of "several couples with an engagement ring each" since those typically retail for a couple thousand.

But yeah, diamond-covered Rolex sort of minimizes my sympathy there.

Always carry your Christmas list with you in case there is a robbery and you need to fill out a list of what was stolen from you. (I bet there is a name for that form, but sweet Mother Benadryl is hiding its name from my brain)

The WH in question is the one closest to where I live, but I go to the one at Lindberg when I want some hash browns. It's a bit more upscale.

Flaws in your logic:
1. You cannot seat 80 people in the "single-wide" concept of embraced by the Waffle House restaurant architect, Joe Frank Lloyd Wright.

2. You will not find 80 married people mych less 80 wedding rings in a Waffle House.

3. You might find 80 golden teeth.

4. You will not find $40,000 worth of jewelry, but easily that cost in tattoos on the employees.
