Al'righty then.


Y'all been patient and restrained during the past while. So, shoot, I've been wanting to throw down a rant or two for a few days but felt constrained for the sake of the anniversary weekend.


This 'CSI' topic stands for "Can't Stand Idiots". I took it from a group that already exists here on the site. Notwithstanding real detectives, forensic folks and the like, thanks for letting me borrow your moniker.


Please try to keep it clean and non-sexual in nature. We can be more clever than that!


I Can't Stand Idiots (in the flavor of Foxworthy's 'You Might Be a Redneck':


I can't stand idiots who work store counters that know nothing about the store and ALWAYS have to ask for a supervisor for the simplest inquiry.


I can't stand idiots who walk down the street with the head in their smartphonea, fall down or get 'rolled' and try to blame it on someone else. Keep your eyes up, you nut.


I can't stand idiots who feel like they need to walk around with their drawers hanging down to their knees.


I can't stand idiots who can't make up their minds: "Paper or plastic?".


I can't stand idiots who feel the need to make an ATM transaction to buy an item under a buck. Good grief, ... you're not opening escrow. Throw down 'fiddy-cents' and be on your way.


I can't stand idiots who feel the need to thump their tunes enough to rattle the windows three blocks away. It ain't my favorite song and you're sled ain't that slick, Slick.


I can't stand idiots at accident scenes that walk and wander all over the road as if there is a magic barrier that protects them from being hit ... at their own collision !


I can't stand idiots that don't keep their glove box tidy, using it as a storage container for reg's back 10 years, old screwdrivers, old crackers, old tickets, old food, wire, unknown sticky goo and expired makeup. (Ocassionally, a gun is stuffed in there and I take it....gloved up, to be sure.)


I can' stand idiots who walk up and interrupt you during a felony 'takedown', guns drawn, commands being issued and they ask you for the directions to Wal-Mart.


I can't stand idiots go 'shopping' at the corner convenience store for milk, cereal, beer, caffeine laced drinks, ice, more bread, bleach, Ho-Ho's, Mountain Dew, 'cigrets', and one each of all the lottery tickets, ... when all you wanted was a simple bottled water.


And, I can't stand idiots who have loud, open and stupid conversations on their cells in a quiet public area.


p.s.: I can't stand idiots who don't belong in Spandex.


Next?

I can't stand idiots who subscribe to the last-is-first philosophy of communication etiquette. You know what I'm talking about. You're sitting there talking to someone face-to-face and their phone rings--and you're the one who has to wait.

I can't stand idiots who decide they need a career change, pass the state exam, then are assigned to me for training, when it is painfully obvious that they should have stayed on their original career path.


I can't stand idiots who, after I report to them that the aforementioned trainee is 'a wash' and will not pass my program, assign the former idiot to another shift instead of heeding my strongly worded advice regarding obvious lacking in common sense and officer safety issues. I can't stand it when this idiocy has been going on for 9 weeks.....


Rant over.......

I can't stand idiots that call me for the same excuse they had yesterday.


I can't stand idiots who cannot raise their own children.


I cant stand idiots who fail to realize they're not the only ones that live on this earth.


I can't stand idiots who think their stuff don't stink , who only care about themselves, who believe that officers are some sort of god that can change anything you ask them to and that disrespect & criticize officers and the Department.


Ahh, .... that felt nice..I never just cut loose.


Thanks!

Sounds like a pretty specific event.  At least I hope so!  If this happens with great frequency, that's a bad sign.  As a newbie entering the academy I am going to bust my butt to be sure this isn't me in FTO!!!

My turn! lol


I can't stand idiots who call up my pharmacy (where I work) asking about oxycotin and other "specific" drugs.  Can you make it anymore obvious that you are trying to buy these drugs to sell on the streets?!!!!!

 Another rant.... an Indian came into my store wanting to ship something.  He works just down the street at one of the convenience stores.  So, he brings in a bunch of things not in a box.  I get to my computer to start an account and I can't really understand a damn thing he is saying! *sighs* then he gets pissed off at me because I didn't get his home address after I finish the transaction (I knew it'd be wrong).  I asked him 10 times what his home address is and he didn't understand what I asked of him.  I seriously doubt it's due to my southern drawl! I used the pharmacy's mailing address.  He demands to see my brother who is the marketing guru and has dealt with him.  He leaves with his stuff and I get to delete the whole transaction.


Listen people, you come to this country, you need to learn how to speak and understand English ! I cannot assist someone who doesn't, no matter how great my customer service skills are.  It's not worth the trouble or the headache.

When I used to work at NAPA Auto Parts, I used to have people get mad at me because I didn't speak Spanish.  Wait, let me check.......yep I'm still in America and English is our language!

I can't stand idiots who:


Call 911 for a phone number or location to a certain highway/street (usually for garage/yard sale purposes).


Start a statement to you as follows... "I really like the police, but..."  then you get the whole story about how their cousin/friend was set up, etc.


Spit out chewed gum on the sidewalk/roadway and it's 110 degrees out and I step in it!

I had gum stuck all over the front of my car one hot day after the guy in front of me ran it over.  I actually saw the strings of gum float and stick to my car while I was driving.  That was NOT fun to clean!!!

I have experienced that twice! And I almost crashed my car because it happened right in front of me.  Of course, you don't know when some jackarse is going to do this.  I feel like I"m driving on the Autobahn at times.  The I-285 perimeter around Atlanta is so crazy with even crazier drivers.

Ok, here we go !!!!


I can't stand idiots (loosely defined) who show a LEO verification star AND comment on women's photos, in the vein of 'hottie', 'sexy', or other such idiotic innuendo.


I can't stand idiots who think we don't see the main reason their posting a specific photo is to get specific attention to specific upper portions of their specific torso. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? DO YOU THINK WE'RE THE IDIOTS? Not so much: We do get it. We weren't born in 'Gumby-ville'.


I can't stand idiots who don't understand that their agency WOULD be interested in these aforementioned images.... Bwahahaha !

I can't stand idiots who are in the 10 items or less checkout with 22 items. Then after the transaction is totaled she pulls out a checkbook and spends 5 minutes looking in her purse for a pen and then waits for the receipt and notes it in her ledger when I just came in to buy a friggin gallon of milk!

Y'all got me in stitches only because your comments are true !


Keep'em comin'.


It's the only demilitarized rant zone on the site where you can blow off a little steam with impunity ... well, within reason.


Ya can't post stuff like ... "I can't stand idiots that leave stank in my patrol car's back seat cuz they haven't seen a bar of soap since Y2K." I dunno, maybe you can !


Stuff like that, ya know?

 I can't stand idiots who feel that they need to take shortcuts in life just to get ahead or that they feel they deserve them.  The best example I can give in relation to this is on the freeway, when there is a mile-long backup due to people needing to exit off to get to their destination.  So, one or a few said drivers decide to drive off the road to get all the way to the top of the hill.  The top of the hill has a red light and these idiots turn on their left turn signal so that they can get over.  They can't wait like everyone else can.  I refuse to let these people over.  One of my biggest pet peeves.  Sorry I keep bringing up drivers LOL

Another example of taking shortcuts (but with a happy ending) occured while I was testing for our local police department.  One individual tried to cut through a parking structure to shorten his 1.5 mile run.  As he came out, there was one of the officers moderating the event standing right there.  Awesome.  He'll never get a job as a cop now because any dept. that checks his background will contact this dept. to see why he was disqualified.  Upon learning why, I would imagine no dept. will have him.
