Okay, here's a question to ponder

Discussion in 'Advice' started by Clothahump, Sep 10, 2018.

  1. We're not supposed to pick up unaccompanied minors, that's a given.

    But what if the parent escorts the kid and puts him in the car because he needs to get to school and for some reason, she can't take him (car broke down or something). Personally, I see nothing wrong with giving the ride in that case. Especially with the camera going.

    What say you?

  2. Nope. Not worth the risk. If she wants to take the ride with him and then back home, fine, but if anything happens on the way, you know damn well Uber will hang you out to dry.

    ...and when you get into an accident, let me know how that works out for you.

    ...and when you get pulled over by the police and they find an accompanied minor in your vehicle, let me know how that works out for you.

    ....and when the parent reports a complaint against you (even with your dashcam), let me know how that works out for you.

    Ever hear of someone getting accused of being a pedophile, found not guilty and finding out that their life has improved because of it???....let me know how that works out for you.

    We've created a whole generation of people who are terrified of children. Don't even talk to a strange child lest someone accuse you of pedophilia.

    Especially if this guy was the driver.

    Looks like a clean cut all American young man. Sure, what mother wouldn't trust their child with a guy like this?

    By the time you realize your passenger is a serial killer it's too late.

    If the parent is someone that you care about so much as to risk your job, then why charge them at all?

    Cancel the ride and choose do not charge rider. Then give the kid a ride for free.

    No, 'we' haven't.
    They have.

    The hand wringing pablum puking commies that run things (right now) created us. They also taught us that 'we' can't compliment a female about her clothing, or open a door for her, or give up a seat on public transportation to a female.
    'We' are forcefully taught that 'we' can't tell her that 'we' are attracted to her, and would like to go out on a date with her.
    When she wears revealing clothing ... 'we' can't look.
    These are lessons that the effeminate and emasculated 'men' of today are taught in pubic (government) schools every day.

    'We' didn't teach these things to our selves.

    Yes, I am a 65 year old white male. No way in hell I can be alone with a kid ... that's the law.

    It's not a law in Texas. Thank god. California? Who knows. They're crazy out there.

    This guy wasn't a killer. He just liked to tie up children and rape them.

    I had that happen when I was new and now just stay out of those areas at those times. Last thing I need is some news crew popping out of the bushes on me.

    It’s not against the law here either but it’s still against U/L rules and they won’t hesitate to throw you under the bus if you have an accident.

    I have considered going back to those areas (ahem, Ocoee, Fl) in order to collect some unaccompanied minor no-show fees

    Nevertheless, I refuse to be guided by the notion that everyone I meet is a potential serial killer or child molester. Or that I need to be on constant alert lest I'm accused of being a serial killer or child molester.

    It IS against the law for you to act your gender in California.
    You will be ostricised and castrated and cauterized for it. You'll lose your job, and wife and any state licenses you posses. You may be charged with a crime - there are many that are specific to being male.

    Don't believe me? Ask Dianne Feinstein, or her lap dog Gavin (Any Twosome) Newsome. Or Antonio Villaraigosa, a well known (in Cali) Hispanic racist.
    All, I am sad to admit, fellow Californians.

    You're right, I fixed it.

    That's because you don't live in the Peoples Republic of California
    Socialist governments are not kind to its subjects.
    Read up on the most famous socialist of all times: Joe Stalin.

    Compliments aren't the problem. Compliments like "Nice tits" is the problem.
    Opening doors = No problem. Opening doors so you can stare at/grab our ass after we enter = problem
    Giving up seats. That's debatable. I'll take a seat, no problem, but sometimes I really prefer to stand, or prefer that someone else sit.
    Telling me you're attracted to me is a rush, but telling me such after noticing the wedding band on my finger isn't.
    "Revealing clothes" as defined by women vs a mans definition can vary greatly. It still doesn't make staring at my tits acceptable.

    Women don't hate all those things. We hate the alpha male chest thumping and machismo games that many guys think need to accompany the above behaviors.

    Yup, you hate ... and hate, and hate the MALEness of some men (the ones you haven't beaten into submission yet). Hate it. You want everybody to be Mr. Rogers.
    But then, it also used to be ok to slap a cad ...

    The closest I have ever come to telling a lady 'nice tits' is when some gal was wearing a half of a t-shirt two sizes too small and no bra and sporting at least a pair of 45s, with one word emblazoned across it. "GUESS''
    I pointed and said, "Tits?"

    Her GFs thought it was funny. She didn't get it. A true blonde, dumb as a rock.

    Sorry pal, but the "you hate me because I'm a guy" line doesn't work because it's not true. I don't hate men. I don't hate alpha men. I married a USMC Colonel, about as 'alpha male" as one can be.

    Women aren't necessarily the problem. it could be complaining that we hate you is the problem.

    Of course it doesn't work, honey.
    It doesn't work because YOU say so.
    And, that's it.
