Cops are a joke

I watched from my balcony as 7 guys got into a tussle on the street. Just a crew of guys that had way too much to drink. A few of these guys were stumbling. When things got heated the cops showed up to difuse the situation. They spent about 20 minutes trying to convince the one guy to leave. Two guys wanted to dance. Anyway they finally calm the guys down and escort this one very inebriated guy to his car. He’s so pissed he can’t find his keys. In the end they watch him drive off. I’m sure he must have had to drive with one eye closed. haha

What’s up with that lately?

I got rear-ended by a drunk driver a number of years ago. He completely demolished the back end of the car, pushing the trunk right into the back seat, and pushing us into the car in front of us. His car somehow hardly got dented. Thank god none of us were seriously hurt. I had to physically restrain him while waiting for the police to show up, as he wanted to drive away. It was pretty easy, as he reeked of alcohol and could hardly stand. Anyways, when the cops showed up he did his song and dance about being out of work and down on his luck, so the accident really wasn’t his fault. After the cops got all his personal information for us…they let him stagger over to his car and drive home! I guess they felt he hadn’t endangered enough people for one night.

BTW, when we contacted him the next day he claimed that it had never happened, and we had to threaten a lawsuit before he could “remember”.

I got hit by an idiot farmer’s wife while driving my son to school. Her motor cycle was loaded with boxes of produce, driving on the wrong side of the road and she was attempting to cross a double yellow line to drive the wrong way up a one way street. They took her away in an ambulance and the local police told me it was my fault because I was driving a car and didn’t speak Taiwanese.
After my son and I were yelled at an insulted for over a half an hour, I gave this a…hole local police officer the number of the Taichung Foreign Affairs Police Chief telling this belligerent cop it was my Taiwanese speaking wife’s number. This a…hole cop then lights a cigarette, blows smoke into the breathalyzer machine and tells me to take a breathalyzer test with it.
No surprise, when he’s done he calls the number I gave him and begins shouting insults at the FAP chief. A FAP officer drove over an hour to come out and file the report.
The a…hole cop was reassigned and I paid the idiot farmer’s wife 3000NT because she was my neighbor in a small farming community. My son on the other hand learned several new profane Taiwanese words from the a…hole cop. I think my son and I learned a lot about local culture that morning.

:roflmao: That’s a good one … ‘local culture’ …

It’s a beautiful thing isn’t it. :bravo:

There’s a big double standard here in my nighborhood. Bitch lady next door can have a midnight puppet show complete with p.a. and 3am fireworks, and the stage is propped against the side of my house. The noisy assholes at the temple down the street can drink and blabber any night of the week as long as they like. BUT whitey gets a visit from the cops if he washes his car… in his own garage… and has the tunes on past 9:30pm on a Saturday night. :fume: Then again, maybe the incident had more to do with the enduring love affair between the Taiwanese and the banjo.

It’s simply a sound that the listener doesn’t like. That’s it.
One place I lived the neighbor and they had so many kids that the wife would wash clothes at 3am, outside my bedroom window. If I complained about that I’d get sworn at and threatened for an answer. The husband worked nights and slept all day. We could have loudspeaker trucks blaring or construction going on all day and he wouldn’t complain at all. If I put on some quiet music mid-afternoon the swearing and threats would start again.
Your neighbors like the sound of puppet show and fireworks. It’s re nao. OTOH, the sound of the English language is probably very irritating to them as they can’t understand it. :idunno:
I know some people just get upset when there is stuff going on around them that they don’t understand. It makes them feel unbalanced or something.
I fly for recreation (paragliders) and we use walkie-talkies in the air for safety. The channel is open to anyone with a transceiver and no one has any license or special right to use it so it can pretty noisy with several separate conversations going on at the same time, but the local users just ignore the chatter of the others and carry on. Of course if we are a bunch of foreign pilots we’re speaking English. A couple of times however we have had Taiwanese start breaking into our conversation complaining about us speaking English:

Local: “Stop speaking English!”
Me: “Don’t listen to our conversation!”
Local: “I don’t want to listen to your conversation!”
Me: “So what’s your problem?”
Local: “I can’t understand what you’re talking about!”
Me: “So just ignore us. We weren’t talking to you anyway.”
Local: “&@(#(@((!!”
Me: “&(&(#(*(@!!”
Local: “I know where you are. I’m gonna come kick your ass!”
Me: “Bring a long ladder!” :laughing:

Just like that loud bloody banjo music that whitey plays whenever they’re trying to entertain?

More banjo music please? :noway:

I like banjo music… and they don’t. I like banjo music as much they like to eat corn.

Not as irritating as the banjo, not nearly as irritating, no way, uh-uh, no no. Best served with a side of screechey fiddle and my Rebel yells after every solo. :smiling_imp:

Dr. Armani’s presciption is a four-hour dose of banjo music for fortitude. Earl Scruggs, Herb Pederson, Pete Wernick, Bill Keith, it makes no difference. Even my Elvis Hitler album doesn’t get a stronger reaction! Positively clears the street: they just don’t understand Appalachian culture!

Well, let us know how it goes then…

Well… the cops like puppet shows better. :frowning:
Predictable.
Now then, how about bringing some banjo music when you fly?

Too right, you’ve been here how many years and you havent learnt the local lingo, shame on you. :smiley: :smiley:

I had a foreigner try to overtake me as I was turning left on a 2 lane each way road. He crashes down the left side of the car clips the mirror and spreads hiself all over the road, and his GF on the back took a nasty tumble.

Then he asks me whats I’m doing as I’ve already called the cops on my mobile and they are on the way.

He tells me not to call cause he doesnt have a licence and that this would be his second accident in a week without a licence. :loco: :loco:

So I asks him how old he is… 28 he replies. He says that I should let him off because he’s a foreigner with no licence and he’s already paid an NT$12000 fine. I reply that as he’s an adult he should take it like a man. Cause to fix my car door, the front left side panel in front of the door and mirror is going to cost that anyways.

It’s not only the locals who have accidents. FAP & Local cops turn up and write their reports.

SO the lad also gets a DUI & NT$120000 fine for being drunk on top of his no licence fine. He’d like to pay monthly installments on fixing my car though. I told him never mind as his GF already squared up the dosh.

You know I’ve been dying to come on one of your skydiving trips… it’s now been upgraded to Life Mission.

Were you turning left from the lane fathest from the right?

Were you turning left from the lane fathest from the right?[/quote]

I would have like to have been but alas I was in the left hand lane. As the bozo who hit me explained, he was in a hurry to get to a party and had been speeding and swerving through traffic and had crossed double yellow lines, ridden on the wrong side of the road and had not expected anybody to turn left. :loco: :loco:

I mean after all, why the fuck would anybody actually turn left at an intersection?? Maybe he went into a trance looking at my indictor lights… the flicking probably bamboozled his already intoxicated mind.

Unfortunately Dangermouse here isnt the UK cause if it had been there where I coulda called you up how many points would the laddy have lost? You coulda thrown the book at him… lets see now you can tell me if we’ve missed any.?? :smiley: :smiley:

okay, I already posted this once today, but the similarity is just too much…
If ever there was a poster boy for the useless, lazy slobs that are the Taiwan police force it’s Chief Wiggam…
