I was in the car this afternoon, stopped at a light. I looked to the right and saw a couple of women walking to the bus stop t the corner. Both wore tank tops, bandannas over their hair, and pajama pants. When they reached the stop, they met up with two guys, both wearing wife beaters and... pajama pants! One of the guys had his flannel pants pulled down low enough to show off the top half of his tighty-whiteys. And, to make sure we had the best view possible of his underwear, his shirt was tucked into the waistband. Of his underwear.

While I was still reeling from the fashion disaster, they started goofing around and one guy hugged tighty-whiteys and gave him a good butt squeeze. I was about to get my camera out of my purse to at least get a group photo, but a car pulled up into the lane next to me and blocked my view completely.

Pity. It would have been a classic shot for this group.

I hate it when that happens.

Few days ago I was at this outdoor food festival and my wife pointed to this woman who had a large dog on a leash. She complained that this was the food court area and the signs everywhere clearly say "no dogs allowed in the food court area", complete with a slashed-circle over a stick-doggie picture. Now, had she called this to my attention five seconds earlier I could have snapped a photo of woman and dog next to one of those signs. GRRR.

I would have crapped through my pants had I seen the family described above... shirt tucked into underwear, muahahaha!!

Mine was on vacation at Lake Tahoe. We were sitting at a table in a bar, just having a little snack in the afternoon. My wife stares over my shoulder and asks if I have my camera with me because there is someone who would fit in perfect with "that Malingering person you like so much". Alas, I did not or I would have been able to show you the monstrosity at the bar. Guy, about 45, too short and tight shorts. He was sitting on a barstool facing out away from the bar with his legs opened AT A 90 DEGREE ANGLE! Just showing off the goods to anyone who walked by.

It was so horrific that my wife had to change seats so it wasn't staring her in the face.

Ok. I'm in the library of the University of Zurich's Medical Department. So no photos and no laughing out loud but I just had to tell you - there's a guy with ass-writing running around here and because I grin madly every time I see him, he now is convinced I fancy him. As in, whispering behind hands to his friends and attempting to subtly indicate my person.
He obviously thinks he's the best thing since sliced bread and unlike most of the women here, I have not spent a lot of time or money on my look today, nor am I skinny and girly so I'm not in his hunting schema. Thus making him believe he is out of my league and sniggering. If only he knew just how much the joke is very firmly on him... You should see his hair. Oh, here he comes... *stares intently at screen*

Ok, back to my studies. But I can tell you, M. you'd have a field day with the people here, they're usually insanely attractive but the way they behave and choose to showcase it... Yesterday this woman came in wearing BELLS on her jumper. In a library. Yay.

I am so very contrite that I missed a perfect opportunity. I was out for my daily stroll, and this particular day (was about 2 weekes ago) I neglected to take the camera with me. Hell, I normally don't get to see any Malingering-worthy stuff, the worst has been a Goth outfit and some older fella in a striped shirt and plaid golf pants.
But here I am, walking down the street, and what do I NOT see pass me in the street but an old Chevy van (probably early '70s) - with a TOTAL camo paint job. I mean TOTAL, bumpers and all. My only thought at that point was "DAMN!".

Today, I failed you guys. I went to my office to study as they are building outside my home and of course, I saw all the ravers on the way to the Streetparade. Google it. Joe Blogg and Cheryl Common dressed in furry outfits, platform shoes, hotpants, body painting, devils horns and more often than not all in the same outfit. A sight to behold. Look for Streetparade Zurich tags, I'm sure you shan't be disappointed.

Gawd, THANK YOU for bringing that to our attention, Kittster! (and a huge thanks to Pontster1112 for shooting 'em!)

I was at the Pierce County Fair with my snarky neice and my snarky wife, and I didn't bring a camera. Man, so much went past that we all remarked on... I think the winner was the 9 months pregnant chick who keep her shirt allll the way up to show off the *very large* green tattoo -- unsure if it was real or an applique -- muralled across her belly. We were ordering food at the time.

monkeyjunkie is a group administrator monkeyjunkie says:

I missed one today. Not an interesting photo type, just a crazy asshole in a car. We were driving down a three-lane road in the middle of a little cluster of traffic. Everyone was moving along nicely and spaced apart. Then some crazy guy in a green minivan came zooming up and wove his way back and forth through the cluster, barely squeaking past cars and usually not using his turn signal. He makes it to the front of the pack... then slows down and goes the same speed as everyone else. Wtf?

At this point, he was two cars ahead of us in our (the middle) lane. Abruptly, he veers to the left, nearly taking out the car in his blind spot. Then he straddles the lane divider before going back into the middle lane. I thought he'd just changed his mind, but my husband told me he looked liked he bent down to get something off the floor. His head disappeared from view. Then he did it again, this time swerving his right tires over the line into the right lane. At least nobody was endangered that time.

Finally, he speeds up and moves away from the cluster, but we're coming up on a red light. I pulled out my camera to get a photo of this asshole, but when I looked back up, it was just in time to see him driving through the intersection through our RED LIGHT. A very solidly red light, not a 'turned red while he was in the intersection.'

I guess he's invincible and his life is more important than anyone else's.

Matt Fitzwater-Stevens says:

So I'm pulling off the freeway on my way to get my California driver's license (a bit delayed ;-) ), when I see a classic Malingering moment. A guy was panhandling at the stoplight...but what a guy! This forty-ish white guy was wearing mirrored shades, a slick Hawaiian shirt, and pleated shorts. He was very well-fed, and didn't look the least bit desperate (unlike most of the beggars we get). In fact, he looked content, confident, bored, and jaded. The best way to describe him is that he looked just like guys I've seen kicking back with a six-pack on their boats, scoping the chicks but not seeing any who really appeal to them.

I reached for my cam phone, and realized it was in its charger. Damn.

Matt: Guy must not know much about marketing. ;-) Someone once told me that when he shops the back lot of St Vincent de Paul (behind the store is their storage area, where you can pick up items and take them to an employee to get priced) he wears an old brown coat so he looks destitute, figuring this will subconsciously encourage the marking employee to charge him less.

The other day my wife and I were somewhere and there was this cute little family, and the father was picking the 5 year old son up and holding him over his head. Fine, but he was holding son upside down by the kid's hips, over Dad's head, upside-down like an inverted A. He held them there for about ten seconds and goofed around partially lowering and re-raising him. This was over asphalt, so we were just standing there staring like there'd be a train wreck. Happily there wasn't. My wife's comment was precious: she said she wanted to be there when the guy kills himself for paralysing or doing brain damage to his kid when he slips.

And then last night, I went to the AM/PM on my way home to fuel up. I've got my tank filled and $3 of change coming back on my twenty, so I stopped squeegeeing my front window to go in and get my cash. At that moment a car pulls into the tanks ahead of me, and there are three people: a weather-worn mother, a post-teen daughter who stayed in the car, and a late-teen daughter in a fuck-me outfit (frilly mini, tight pink top with built-in cups, etc.). I go into the building to get my change and get a better gander at the fuck-me outfit, retrieve my three dollahs, and as I'm getting back to my car the mother is coming across the lot... with a lit cig in hand. I'm rather happy I've got my petroleum pumping done at this moment. I finish the front window and give some token swipes to the back, and then go to the pole by these people's car to put the squeegee away, and see that while the younger one is pumping gas, the older one in the car is also smoking - window down, in the driver's seat five feet from the pump. Without any further ado I get the hell out of there.

I'm so bummed: I went out to get lunch, but left my camera at my desk, thinking, 'Oh, I'll be busy, and there's never anything.'

No, just a guy pulling a u-turn in a red light, waiting until the last possible moment before the oncoming traffic; just a guy at the sushi bar shouting to himself and his purported business associates via the headless earset phone, munching away; just people speeding past schools but slowing down for the light up "your speed" cart set up a few yards further down the road; just more examples of that fashion that makes women look like they put on a toddler's dress over a tank top, so their busts sort of erupt forward out of the ridiculous top layer of their outfit. And it's a holiday weekend, and everyone's already left town!

TheDamnMushroom is a group administrator TheDamnMushroom says:

I already mentioned (in a photo description) seeing two small dogs in a stroller yesterday, with another dog in a stroller at the same corner so there's bonus stupidity, but couldn't get the camera to power up in time. The other photo I didn't get the camera up in time for:

This food booth offered slices of watermelon on their menu, but at some point in the late afternoon they must have run out, which is understandable since it had gotten up to 96°F earlier in the day. The supermarket is a block away, so the booth sent this guy with a gas-powered scooter to go fetch another melon. When I was passing by the booth, the guy was just returning... straddling the scooter with a watermelon balanced on the footboard. I didn't get the camera powered up in time before he'd stopped waddling along and picked up the watermelon. Everyone around thought it was hilarious.

AAARRRRGGGGHHH!!!!

Was in Wal-Mart with the wife & kids on Saturday, standing in line waiting to part with my hard-earned cash. A teen-aged blonde goes by in one of those fuzzy sweat outfits, ass-writing AND visible tramp stamp with no discernible panty lines. My wife looks at her, looks at me (who is looking at her as well) and says, "What the hell is THAT?" I said, "Tell you later when the kids aren't around", then explain out of earshot about ass-writing and tramp-stamps. She said, "Our children better never even TRY to go out like that!".

Wish I had the camera. But at least, you are getting the message out Mal!

Yesterday I witnessed the following out front of a supermarket:

a) Two college girls pulled into the fire zone, put on their 4-way flashers, and went in for a latte. That big an emergency?

b) Ginormous pickup pulls into a parking spot and is overlapping the handicapped spot by almost three feet. Having a very short dick or being a lousy driver is not the kind of handicap they're referring to, Sparky.

As usual, no camera or cop in sight.

I humbly beg pardon. A hysterical case of implants wandered by in a turquoise halter top, and I didn't even think of getting my camera. (My feet hurt. I would have had to walk up hill to the hootch while dodging studental wheeling blades of death, kick aside sick and dying fencing instructors seeking final resting places on the couch, find my camera bag, etc.)

Instead, argued with my fellows about how we should restrain ourselves since perhaps they were medically/psychologically necessary, tried not to giggle, etc.

I mean, they were completely impervious to gravity. Not a single quiver or jiggle.

I also neglected to photograph shelf boobs, "guide-dog" boobs (leading the way, dangling freely over the bodice), and frightening codpieces. Sorry. With any luck, something will appear in the background of some bout (that I won't feel obliged to edit out). In the meantime, I invite you to Find the Tranny in last week's allotment. (Just don't be too mean about it in the comments--by all reports she's very nice.)

I gotta get a shot of the people that constantly drive in the shoulder in the right turn lane near my work. Somehow they think that a shoulder with diagonal stripes painted on it is ok to drive in. Half the time they don't stop for the light (it is no right turn on red).

Then there was the bwm backed into 3 spaces at the nearby strip mall the other day. This was right after I read the asinine comment justifying this bad parking:

Meow, we're going to be heading to the Texas Renaissance Festival within the next few weeks, and you can bet we'll have our cameras. I've seen shelf boobs, but I hadn't heard of guide dog boobs until now. We've also seen a tranny or two (non-Flickr links).

Back to the original topic - Today, at the mall, middle-aged woman zips past us on one of thoe Rascal-type scooters with a small dog on her lap. Only things that looked wrong with her were poor make-up application and carrying way too much weight around the midsection.

meowhous the iconoclast is a group administrator meowhous the iconoclast says:

I don't know what else to call long pointy, dangly boobs that sway around wildly, over a low cut bodice--and I use the term bodice loosely, since it looked more like one of those corsets that is cut below the bust--in this case it is not supporting the bustline, merely underlining it, and in fact the boobies only means of support is the thin blouse's gathered neckline. It's probably not as unattractive if she stood still or mostly still, but loping across the countryside with breasts akimbo was a bit frightening.

If it will help anybody's turn-on, I should further add that she was in grubby peasant wear, with lank, oily shoulder length brown hair.

I spent a great deal of Monday irritated because I missed snapping a shot of an angry mom minivan sporting the license plate holder 'LEGALISE USING BLINKERS', engaging in a lot of flagrant unsignaled lane changes. My excuse: I'm sick (my real source of irritation), and she was only available during the most dangerous section of my commute (and it's fairly dangerous). But late in the day I realized maybe she was not talking about turn indicators, but perhaps was using the term "blinkers" to refer to those things they used to put on horses's head harnesses to keep them from being spooked by things in their side view, and that's probably a good idea: a spooked carriage horse is always a danger to itself and others.

I call those boobs "lunch" if I like them and "grannyboobs" if I don't. Most of the time I refer to that variety as "squeeps" (I forget why) or "blips" (after the General's assistant in the Beetle Bailey cartoons). They were the reason that brazzieres come in sizes smaller than B -- they rival ducks in their migratory patterns.

You don't wanna drive near anyone wearing blinders/blinkers.

cmrowell is a group administrator cmrowell says:

Back to the one's who got away topic. I knew it would not be appropriate to bring my camera to a funeral, but there were so many Malingering shots that I could have taken. First of all, I think everyone should own funeral clothes. If you don't wear them when you are alive, you could at least be buried or cremated in them. So many of the girls there looked like they were dressed for a wedding. Downright slutty outfits. Tight pants, low cut tops, midrift showing. There was even the cream of the crop, muffin top with white tank top and black bra showing and another girl with tight blue jeans and ugg boots. Ugg boots at a fucking funeral. They weren't even black.

Not to let the guys off easy, either. The guy in front of us had a haircut that probably cost more than his girlfriend (perfectly mussed) and was wearing surfer clothes (black at least, but I was staring at a little wave emblem the entire time). Guys, buy a dark suit. I felt like one of the best dressed there. People probably thought I worked for the funeral home. I suppose I'm just lucky that the suit that I wore to my mom's funeral still fits.

There's a funeral parlor on my corner. I pretty consistently avert my eyes. (I never have anything to wear either, but I go out to buy something and make an attempt to avoid rhinestones.)

I coerced another flickrer to show up at renfaire, so I'd have an excuse to see the joust and otherwise wander around and goof off while I was still not quite fit. Things kept being pointed out to me, and I'd reply, "Yeah, he's here every week." But after awhile, it became apparent that I tune out so many of the egregious outfits to such an extent that I don't even have that frisson of ew-don't-look anymore.

Except late in the day, when either most customers have left or are at the 5pm joust, and there's no crowd to distract my eyes from horrifying lacks of support. But then I'm usually to tired to grab for the camera, and the light is just awful anyway. Grr.

I thought I discerned a lack of shirtless large men in kilts, unusual for Celtic Invasion Weekend, but, like I said, I may have lost the knack.

I know there are a certain percentage of people that just won't wear suits no matter what, even at a funeral. That's ok, I guess. A group of Harley riders was there and they were all in their black leather. I just think modesty should be a general rule. Yeah, normally I can tune a lot of it out. Camo and ugg boots becomes part of the background noise.

Zervas: five days later I finally read your question... ugh, sorry. I was in town for a couple days and spent an hour or so on Saturday in Pioneer Square -- there wasn't much to see other than the fatality-wannabee. Did more shooting at malls than on the street.

And the word I was trying to find the other for the saggy boobs was "splats". I guess it required seeing a pair in Lloyd Center to remind me. :)

It's surprising what people will wear when there is the expectation, implied or stated, of dressing up. :-/

no problem tdm, I'm busy as heck anyway but I thought it'd be fun to bump into you. I've actually never been to pioneer square on the weekend, life's pretty hectic. or the lloyd center for that matter, although that's more of a personal choice.
Anyway, today I got seriously yelled at by some folks for taking their picture. A tween guy, who I wasn't shooting (he was in my way actually) and some teen girl. As a rule I don't take pictures of kids, I just don't need to deal with it but if somebody threatens me or my property I'll go pretty shoot crazy. Unfortunately my camera was acting up and none turned out. They were "quoting" non specific laws and basically showing their ignorance through their volume.
Does anyone know of any case or statute law on the subject? I'd like to have something written down I can carry with me in case a cop shows equal ignorance of my right to shoot.

My own missed beauty: I was near the front of a full block of traffic waiting for the light to change. This was on Van Ness, an eight- or ten-lane-wide artery in what you could call "downtown" San Francisco. The light turned green.

And there, smack in the middle of the crosswalk, was an idiot blabbing on his cell phone. Distracted by his conversation, he was ambling along at near-geriatric pace. (He was around 30.) The jerk did not speed up, or even look sorry, as he held up all of Van Ness.

I dived for my camera, but it was packed away too well.

Missed shot of the day: I walked out to my mailbox across the street and... there's a rooster at the edge of the road, up the street. I live in suburbia so though "where the hell did he come from?" Got my mail and dashed back into the house to get the camera... but apparently during the ten seconds I was inside the bird's owner, who lives at the end of the block on my side of the street (and the neighbors have complained about being awaken at daybreak by the little bastard), reclaimed him. I got to the end of my driveway with camera at the ready, but no rooster to be found, just the owner at his fence trying to figure how his poultry got out. I already had the whole Flickr page created in my mind for that photo...

This morning I was standing in line to get coffee, and in front of me was, I swear to God, a miniature pea-jacket! Complete with a tiny little belt in the back, that might go at your waist, except on an adult woman, it was just above bra level. The tiny little sleeves only came down to her elbows, but the cuffs had little tabs with buttons too. I couldn't stand to look to see how far it reached in the front, but in the back, in length, it didn't quite reach her hips. In order not to laugh, I looked down and away (and picked up my jaw from the ground), but then I just noticed that she had paired it with some sort of gaucho pants, made from baggy black leggings, cut off just below the knee (and not hemmed). And topped with a headband and spiky black hair, so maybe it was high fashion punk. I just don't know. I couldn't bear to look any more. I mean, the length of the coat would fit an older toddler, if she was a bit burly (particularly around the shoulders).

A tiny pea-jacket!! Hahaha! Oh, I really wish I'd gotten a photo, so I could bug my sister with questions about if this was standard issue or if she could buy these at the PX. I mean, the length of the coat would fit an older toddler, if she was a bit burly (particularly around the shoulders).

a) Was going around a corner and this gentleman was just getting onto the sidewalk from crossing the street. Seemed about 50, very respectable face and body, wearing mostly grey like it was a suit though it was a bit more casual than that, and seemed fairly dignified... except for the neon lime green ankle warmers. Okay, what? Foresooth, I shitteth thee not. One of these things is not like the others...

b) Definitely a "where's my damn camera?!" moment: I'm coming up to the queue of cars at the short light near my house, and am sitting to the side of the 7-11. There are two kids with sk8boards and one with a BMX bike. It then comes to me what's wrong with this picture... one of the kids has climbed onto the 66" tall cinderblock wall in front of the Dumpster, and is standing on the tail of his board. Oh dear Jah, tell me he's not gonna try to do what I think he's gonna try to do. Yes, he did it, he attempted to jump off the top of the wall with his board under him and land that way. He survived this round, but then this itsy bitsy spider climbed back up, and his friend handed him the board.

A customer had come out the front door, witnessed this, and went back in. So when the kid was getting adjusted for his next try at imminent death, the Bangledeshian owner came dashing out the side door right by the Dumpster area (scared the bejeebers out of the kids) and he starts chasing down the kid with the board. I am laughing my ass off and the light has changed. He gets his point across to the kid to take his lawsuit elsewhere, and they saunter off. This is where I come to find out the purpose of the second sk8er -- he was holding the biker's left pedal, which had apparently snapped off shortly before I arrived, thus the biker had to push himself along when he was leaving. Maybe he'd tried the stunt too?

c) Target parking lot on Tuesday, home of a big Boxing Day sale. Looking for a parking spot. See reverse gear lights on this very large pickup, so stopped and waited. This is one of those overcompensation skyjacked pickups, and if it weren't a woman who drove it (practically needing a stepladder to get into the driver's seat) I'd say the driver either must have had a one inch penis or lived in the middle of a swamp. So she tries to back out, and can't quite manoever. Tries again, just can't seem to figure out how to get it out of the spot. Then she rolls forward and I see the front of her pickup bounce from hitting the curb. There is an eight foot wide grassy median between this parking spot and the side road. "I double dog DARE you," I said in anticipation of her next move, and she didn't disappoint... she fucking climbed her pickup over the grassy strip and got onto the road that way.

Was at the mall yesterday and decided to pay $20 for a half hour Chinese massage. So I'm face down on one of those massage chairs and all I could see were people's feet walk by and a whole family walked by wearing those boat shoes crocs with the ties on them. I almost got up but the massage took priority. After it was over, I walked around the mall 3 times looking for them, but I think they went to the movies. I never thought I would see them actually on people's feet.

Snackbar at Target: I'm waiting in line and the people at the counter are an Asian mother and a little girl approximately age 2. The little girl's elastic-waist pants are sagging a bunch, so there's no mistaking:

She's wearing panties over a diaper.

I could see the other way around -- the kid is learning how to wear big-girl drawers, and has an insurance plan in place. That's likely how it was before the advent of Pull-Ups. But this?

When my daughter wears a dress or skirt, she wears a cloth diaper cover under it, but for simplicity's sake, we call those panties. So my daughter will sometimes wear a diaper, stockings, then 'panties' under her dress. Toddlers aren't into modesty, so those keep her from flashing her diaper while she scrambles around.

As for wearing real panties over diapers, that may be the parents' potty training incentive. Offering to let her wear the panties WITHOUT a diaper once she's trained. I often hear of parents letting their toddlers pick out 'big kid' underwear as a reward for successful potty training.

Photo I missed today:

I was rounding the corner of 38th & Pacific to go to work, and there's a Shell station there. The cops are there at least once a week when I'm going home 'round midnight, and there are always scroungy people around the lot. Anyhow, there is a nicely dressed man wandering up and down the sidewalk with a sign. And the sign says:

You can buy drugs at the pump here. Don't buy gas here please.

I wasn't aware this Shell offered Full Service. :) If the price of gas at that station wasn't high enough to scare people off (20¢ higher than the place down the hill I go) or the people who congregate there aren't scary enough... Uh, unless he meant that you should buy the drugs instead of the petroleum.

Yesterday I saw this woman at Wal Mart, with black long hair, pastel pink cat eye glasses, a long white skirt and a tight light blue t-shirt that said something around the lines of "when I'm not with him I'm looking". She had a 24 pack of Miller Lite in her cart.

I passed by her in the parking lot as we were going to our cars. She was surrounded by these (come on, they had to be) under 21 year olds, and someone asked "where are we going to put all this shit?"
"under our legs".

I'm sure she bought that miller lite for those kids.

Undoubtedly.

Anecdote: I was buying wine coolers for my 16 yr old brother and his (lush, 17) girlfriend at the Safeway when our folks were out fo town -- six coolers?, I asked her; no six four-packs -- and when I was wheeling the mass out to the pickup my brother was going "getinthecar getinthecar getinthecar". Seems our doctor neighbor from across the street AND the old woman from next door were both doing their grocery shopping at that moment...

He broke up with her after she came to my house, alone, for me to buy vodka for this party she was going to... and didn't take him.

I forgot this one. Last week I was at a grocery store in Smithfield, VA. Everybody drives cars out here, because there's no public transportation, no sidewalks, the store is no where near a neighborhood, so you can't walk there easily.

I saw a man in his wife, probably about in their late 50's early 60's, and the man had a manbag. I could understand the manbag if you walked everywhere or took public transportation. But a trip to the grocerystore, and you took your car there?

I just hope he had an excuse like "I have to keep my medicine on me" or something.

I saw a slightly less furry pair of these worn by a high school student at a football game this Saturday in 75 degree weather. Now, in all fairness, it was about 40 degrees at breakfast time. But when she changed into her hot pants, you'd have to assume she could have changed out of her snuggly boots. Either that or I regret missing the shot of her in her hot pants with goose-pimply legs reacting to the 40 degree temperature.

P.S.: What, exactly, is a "Franklin Skank?" The skank part gives me a good idea, but I was looking for a more precise reference and Googling it just takes me back to this thread.

I spotted a CSM at Wal Mart last week wearing the boat Crocs. I'd never seen them in person. They were in "tasteful colors" not the bright or pastel colors. They actually didn't look that bad since they were black and brown.

I went on an overnight tour of an all girls college a couple of weeks ago, and the moms were dressed very inappropriately. All the moms were very prissy (but the daughters were not, surprisingly, they were actually down to earth), several of them wore high.heel.boots. on a walking tour of a college. In the mountains. Hilly sidewalks. Stairs leading to dorms, and they wore high.heel.boots. They had to know what they were getting themselves into because we got the itnernary mailed to us, and it said specifically "Tour of the campus".

I overheard one mom say to her daughter, "you want some Dior Gloss?" No, not "you want some lip gloss?", but she specifically said the namebrand of the lip gloss. A $24 lip gloss.

Most of them stayed at this little inn (that looked sorta like a motor lodge from the 1960's or something) on campus. Dad saw photos online of the place as he was planning the trip and he said it was pretty nice, but it was $170 a night. We stayed at a motel 8, which was very nice as well.

Route 1 is a busy road in my part of MD, but UMD students are still jaywalking fiends. I wait for the light to turn, but everyone else runs across 2 lanes to the median, and then another 2 lanes to the other side of the street, dodging traffic.
The intersection that I usually use doesn't have a median, but it doesn't stop my "peers" for creating a make-shift one out of the left hand turn lane.

One day a "bro" is dawdling in the turn lane, and I keep thinking to myself "Let today be the day, let today be the day" when [finally] a car pulls up into the turn lane, with a very green light ahead of her and very little oncoming traffic. She would have been clear to go, if "bro" hadn't been standing directly in front of her car. Does he get worried and move out of the way? Nope. Doesn't care. This kid doesn't even look at the car 2 feet from him, and finishes crossing at his own leisure, causing her to completely miss the light.

The lady in the car was so patient. Didn't honk her horn, didn't slowly creep up to him, even though he is standing in the middle of Route 1 in a green light. I wanted to run him over with my bike.

I keep meaning to make a collection of these kids waiting in that lane but I'm bike-bound at that specific time period and it's dangerous to add a camera to that condition.

Another Route 1 story.
Route 1 is super-busy in college park, and also shoulderless. It's sidewalk, two lanes, median, two lanes, sidewalk. I always pity people who break down because there is nowhere to go [the curbs are too high/sharp to drive up on].

I'm waiting for the bus when a woman in a Chrysler[a big one, too] pulls out from the green light, then immediately after clearing the intersection, "pulls over" [i.e. stops in the middle of the right lane], gets out of her car, and walks into the smoothie shop. No Hazards, no rush, nothing.

She was in there for about 10-15 minutes, while a clusterfuck was developing outside due to her ignorance. Buses had to swerve around her, people got stuck behind her in the middle of the intersection, complete chaos.

I had just hit "call" for the local police when she strolled out the store, wondered why it was so difficult to get into her car with all the mysteriously irritated traffic surrounding it, and drove off scot-free.

I didn't have my camera on me at the time, and I still hate myself for it. I would've totally taken a video of what was going on and taken a picture of her license plate. Her ignorance could've gotten someone hurt.

I did see karma happen once, without injury. I was biking through downtown Yakima and came to a stop sign. There were two kids on BMX bikes behind me, and they ran the sign across [usually busy, three-lane 1-way] Lincoln Avenue. This is one block from Yakima PD HQ, so the cop in the cruiser who pulled them over 0.75 seconds later had low-hanging fruit. This was probably the first time I ever did a Nelson "ha ha!"

Repeat performances, of cops seeing other people do rediculous things in front me, have been rare.

That's just getting to campus, and there are 3 other intersections that kids use to cross.
Even though the campus is public and there's through traffic everywhere, the pedestrian laws give students full power. Crosswalks are meaningless and ipods are on full-blast. They're so oblivious to everything.

UMD is huge, too, so it's a lot of clusterfuckery.

Oh, and once again, I caught a kid in that left hand turn lane, but he crossed before I could stop my bike and get the camera.
The college park police station is right there, too. They could look out their little windows and see anyone standing in the middle of Route 1 but choose not to, which i somewhat understand.

Was in Target last night and there was this woman wandering past the snackbar to the restroom. She was wearing a nice white outfit of a nice shirt and a nice frilly skirt which was fairly conservative as skirts go, it was above halfway to her knees. I noticed her proportions had something unusual to them -- average at the shoulders and arms, average at the ankles and knees, but then her thighs grew expontentially. I wouldn't have given her another thought except for this quick glimpse of something as she disappeared down the hall that made me go "huh, wait?" Say what you will but I waited in the dollar bin section (was gonna browse there anyway, right?) for her to return from the restroom... Suspicion confirmed, and I had to contain my laughter:

Despite the length of her skirt, her ass still hung below the hem. I don't mean a slight bit of panty fabric peeped when the skirt bounced up with her strides, I mean it looked like she was wearing a micromini because about 1/5 of her ass mass was right friggin' there.

Poor woman!

I could've scored major points in my own silly game today. I walk outside of class and nearly trip over three girls with poorly bleached hair, gray t-shirts and uggs sitting on the floor in the hallway. Nothing out of the usual except the paint job on one of the girl's faces. I've seen really orange tans, really fluorescent tans, but never horribly butchered tans.

This girl looked like she painted orange on her face without a mirror. Her skin was lighter at the hairline, by her ears, and became incredibly focused on her cheeks. She reminded me of the hamburgers in fast-food places that just sit under the red lights.

I was dying to document them, but the proximity was too close to be discreet, and it's hard to do from-the-hip if your subjects' eyes are five feet directly in front of your hip.

Speaking of asses -- and the other day when I was out with friends I saw this large and amorphous woman who had no discernable butt in green sweats, so I have some visual of what you described -- here's my story:

Saw this girl from the back, somewhere in her teens (never saw her face to get an age), who was crouched down and her pants were down here while her white poly/cotton underwear were up where where they belong. Like a three or four inch gap between the tops of the two layers. The sticking point is: she was wearing a belt -- but didn't put it through the backmost loop, just the ones at the sides. I suppose without the belt pinning the pants to her hips she might have fallen right out (or become a rap singer). Kinda missed the point of wearing a belt, miss?

(But I had a shift supervisor at Pizza Hut who wore a belt with every pair of pants, including the ones without belt loops. She explained it was a fashion accessory that her upbringing in the South said was required.)
- - -
UPDATE two hours later: Lightning strikes twice. She got the back beltloop this time but her wardrobe is still malfunctioning... tighten that belt and/or try regular-waist jeans already, these are riding down too far! She must know this isn't functional since she's walking around holding them up.

To wit (and no longer a "one that got away" I guess):
the belt is of no help

As usual, I don't have my camera with me when I go wandering around town, and that's when the wildest things can be seen. Two of which bear mention:

At the gas station, a white guy getting into the passenger side of a pickup. The shirt has a picture of a Pancho Villa-esque with the Mexican flag around him, and in the foreground a lawnmower. The caption is.... wait for it...
"LET MY PEOPLE MOW!"
I didn't create this shirt so please, don't give me any grief.

I'm driving down 38th to go to a store, and pass this couple walking down the sidewalk from behind. The woman is wearing overalls and a bikini top. Correction, that's more like an eyepatch across her large and gushing left mammary. I'm not adverse to side-boob shots but, hmm, the label was wrong and one size does not fit all.
I did my business within a few minutes and am going back up 38th, and pass that pair (heh) again. This time since I'm facing her I can see that her right overall strap is off, hanging out her right buubii and as I mentioned before that five square inches of fabric isn't doing anything -- including its job. She's walking along a main road with her right doggie-nose sniffing around! WTF!
