You Canadians are too polite by georgeha (4.00 / 1) #1 Tue Jul 28, 2009 at 03:09:01 PM EST
in America, this would have been settled with nines, or gats, or AKs.

"Fuck you!"

"No, fuck *you*!"

"No, fucking jackass, fuck you."

Or something like that. Perhaps with some shoving.

nine = 9mm, a common caliber of handgun.

gat = gatling == gun, typically a handgun, often a glock, but could be others..

what did the man look like ? I get the "git offa my lawn" feeling from him, but ...

And can you post the geo co-ords, so I can see this thing from google satellite ? Intrigued about the locale..

The Man by CheeseburgerBrown (2.00 / 0) #14 Tue Jul 28, 2009 at 05:41:57 PM EST
The man was maybe middle aged, a little bit fat for his polo shirt which had a logo of some kind on the breast.

people in low-status jobs with uniforms get to shout at other people. They also get paid overtime and aren't generally called to work stupid hours for no extra money.

People in senior management jobs get to shout a people also. And they get more money and they don't get called on to work a load of unpaid overtime 'cos it's acknowledged that they don't have any useful skills.

People in the middle - computer techies, graphics wizards etc. don't get to shout any anybody and can be called on at a moments notice to work extra to "fix stuff".

The world has gone wrong somewhere.

Who plays golf there ? by sasquatchan (2.00 / 0) #18 Tue Jul 28, 2009 at 08:41:48 PM EST
In the states, most golf courses are part of a residential plot/division/community.. It just seems odd to have what looks like a commercial park surrounding the fairways, and not million dollar homes..

(And some of those commercial lots do have a seedy "dump the dead hookers here" look, based on the satellite picture..)

Business Douches, I guess by CheeseburgerBrown (2.00 / 0) #28 Wed Jul 29, 2009 at 09:39:52 AM EST
Nobody I know. Not even the business douches I know, actually. But there's always some lardo cracker in a polo shirt whaling away at a ball out there when I drive past, rain or shine.

hmm. I've been around there by infinitera (2.00 / 0) #19 Tue Jul 28, 2009 at 08:58:21 PM EST
There's both a steak house of some sort and a Jack Astor's to the north of Dixon Rd.

Clone Restaurants by CheeseburgerBrown (2.00 / 0) #27 Wed Jul 29, 2009 at 09:39:08 AM EST
There is a lot carbon-copy large-portion eateries around here, mostly American chains where the waitress is paid to be extra obnoxious (basically, any place that has to ask "Have you been with us at ********'s before?" is a part of that same evil mess). I suppose one or more of them could be a Jack Astor's.

Those that aren't carbon-copy large-portion eateries are cheaper, Canadian facsimiles thereof -- all owned by Cara, the airline "food" people.

I try not to buy food around here, but when I must I go to the commercial park café where buying the tandoori chicken requires a credit check. In contrast, bringing my lunch from home is relatively cheap.

well, by infinitera (2.00 / 0) #30 Wed Jul 29, 2009 at 01:44:42 PM EST
I wasn't precisely living there at the time. This past spring, my wife was writing her last law school exams and we were staying with her mom in Etobicoke. I was also working remotely, and so between the two of us, we didn't have much time - I ended up picking up random things along Dixon Rd. ;)

Pizza Nova and Swiss Chalet are pretty good, though.

wait, airlines still have food? by Phil Urich (2.00 / 0) #35 Wed Aug 19, 2009 at 09:28:00 PM EST
It's been ages since my flight information said anything other than "none" or "snacks only" in the "food service:" field. To make matters worse, the Minneapolis-St.Paul airport (which nearly all my flights seem to need a layover at) doesn't even have a Pizza Hut Express anymore (which had the most mysteriously tasty fast-food I've ever had, and it was replaced by McDonalds, ugh).

I thought of you by garlic (4.00 / 1) #13 Tue Jul 28, 2009 at 05:17:23 PM EST
when running into traffic driving through toronto on 401 during non-rush hour times. The traffic signs are all very amusing compared to the ones I see in chicago, which matter of factly tell me times to get places, or to watch out for vehicles with stolen children. None of the ones in chicago say to merge politely, or to please consider mass transit next time.


toronto doesn't have non-busy by infinitera (2.00 / 0) #20 Tue Jul 28, 2009 at 09:00:39 PM EST
Rush hour is a parking lot, other times are just "active". Even at 3am.
