Two New York stories

two quickies:

1. I got a call from an unemployed, MBA-awarded friend today who said he was driving around the beach since he had nothing else to do today. He decided to get a car wash and as he was waiting to pull into the driveway of the establishment, a cop pulled up behind him. He slowed down a bit, put on his indicator and continued. The cop proceeded to pull right up behind him and put on his lights and sirens. As my friend had *illicit* articles in his car, he decided to pull over slowly and see what the hell the cop wanted. The cop car quickly pulled around him, pulled into the driveway of the car wash and proceeded to cut my friend in line and wash his car.

The cop wanted a car wash.

2. I had to go to the supermarket on Sunday night as ouizy always goes mundanely to the supermarket on Sunday night. There is nothing like a NYC supermarket, extra small carts, extra narrow aisles, rotten fruit, old ladies screaming at the deli kid because the pastrami is sliced too thick, old ladies screaming at the fish guy because the halibut is sliced too thin, and what can I say about those lines? I can say this; in my supermarket there are different kinds of check-out lines. There is the "5 item and under" line, the "10 item and under" line, the "15 item and under" line, and the rest of the lines. I was on one of the rest of the lines as my cart was full of the "groceries" I buy (typically snack foods and fruit drinks.) The lines were extremely long and I heard some guy start screaming. He was on the "10 item or under" line and he was yelling something about a number of items a girl on line had, but he was screaming at the top of his lungs like it was the end of the world. The girl in question already had her groceries on the conveyor belt and was getting ready to pay when this guy (who was at least 8 people behind her) ran up to her, and asked her how many items she had. She said, "I dunno like 10 or 12." He proceeded to scream out how many items she had (after he counted out loud) and berated her for having 18 items (most like a banana, an apple) on the belt. He picked up a basket and threw all her groceries into it and kicked it away from the line. People started to yell at him, but it was too late, the damage was done. The young girl held her head down, called him a fucking asshole and got on one of the long lines.

It was unbelievable. All I could think was "welcome to New York" but then I just thought that we were lucky bullets were not flying...

how does that old saying go....I love New York? Or is it "only in New York."

Unlike anywhere else in the country.

The other day I was talking on my cell phone on the train, someone asked me to please quiet down (I talk very soft, and only quick conversations) I told them no. They called me an asshole, so I called them a gock-gobbler. Such is life in NYC.

What happens if the police want to get ahead of you in the donut line?

Sounds like things are getting back to 'normal' in the big apple.

From The Smoking Gun today:

JULY 14--Meet Michael Matakaetis. The 23-year-old Florida man was arrested last week after cops pulled him over for suspicion of drunk driving. Matakaetis, who had an open bottle of Captain Morgan Rum in his Lexus, apparently realized he was plastered and would be headed to the slammer. So, according to this Martin County Sheriff's report, Matakaetis decided to try and bribe his way out of the can. But instead of cash, Matakaetis actually offered the cop a stack of Dunkin' Donuts coupons. He noted, without irony, "You can have these if you just let me park the car and I'll walk home." If you're wondering where Mikey got that fistful of freebies, well, his pop is a doughnut impresario who's in the process of expanding his South Florida Dunkin' Donuts empire. Matakaetis's bribe offer was rebuffed and he was transported to the county jail, where he compounded his problems by telling the deputy, "You're gonna get a bullet...you should've let me go." Along with a misdemeanor DUI count, Matakaetis was also charged with a felony for threatening the cop. Released on $50,500 bail, Matakaetis faces an August 14 court hearing.

She was probably a New Yorker in Las Vegas.
