So Is This The “Peter Parker Authority” Now?



Haaaaaaaaa…. I like it when these are easy!!!

This photo even came in with it’s own Jagoff-estrator markings!!!

Here’s the message that came with the pic above:

If this were me, I’d be tagged and towed or BOOTED.. what a pair of jagoffs. This was on the Northside on Tripoli street today.. Both cars seemed to be there for a long time…

Haaaaa kind of like an 19-year old sitting elbow-to-elbow at a bar with an LCB rep!  Or, even MORE crazy, a body guard hanging out with a City Mayor and paying for his stuff with a secret debit card!  Oh wait…um… never mind that second one.

Quite honestly, I have no idea what the protocol is when an official Parking Authority vehicle, is caught by an official Peter Parking Authority vehicle.  I feel like this is a crazy double-agent, Bourne Identity thing going on here!

Hey Parking Authority, we realize that you don’t really have “authority” over parking around neighborhood Stop signs but you are indeed an “authority” on parking…meaning, you should know and abide by the rules the rest of us live by!  If not, how can you be considered a parking “authority?”

Connie, you did all of the heavy lifting for the  blog post today!!!!!   But I just can’t sit in my lawn chair on my front porch, with my jorts rolled up and my t-shirt sleeves rolled up to my shoulders working on my ”Pittsburgh Tan” and let you carry all the weight.  So here’s my 9 cents worth (it used to be my 2 cents worth but the price of gas has caused me to increase my fees).

 People who live in glass houses, shouldn’t throw stones
*  Let he who casts the first stone, not live in a glass house
*  Let he who drives a Parking Authority be a parking “authority”
* Let he who parks too close to ANY stop sign get a citation like the rest of us commoners would get, Ya Jagoffs!
Thanks to Connie Boyd-Concannon for being our Honorary Jagoff Catcher for today’s post AND for her awesome Jagoffestrator skills.

No Shoes, No Shirt, No MANNERS!!!!!!!!!!



As you know, this blog was started to point out anyone trying to embarrass Pittsburgh!  Well……..the Kenny Chesney tour rolled through town this weekend which gets us to today’s blog post!

As usual for this concert, the world shut down ALMOST equal to when the Steelers are playing a Sunday game against the Ravens.  Tailgating, drinking, peeing in public, laughs, a few beer-muscle fights, etc, etc, etc.  You know the drill.

And when it was all over, the parking lots looked like the picture above.  You know, standard stuff…. you throw stuff all over the ground…..just like after you have a party at your OWN house.

Or, since this is graduation party time… just like when you’re done eating your Giant Eagle fried chicken, Nana’s homemade rigatoni and meatballs and Aunt Jean’s potato salad and cookies… you just toss your paper plate, utensils, napkins, drinking cup or can/bottle right on to their driveway. Standard behavior, right?  Oh, and don’t forget to leave a bra, pair of underwear or errant shoe somewhere in the mess too!

Yesterday, WPXI Reporter Dave Bondy, posted this photo on his Facebook page.  It was shared over 2,000 times and had thousands of comments… including people supporting the fact that this mess was substantiated by the fact that it costs $40 to park and that the cost  of cleanup is “paid for.”

Oh!  So with that same thinking, the more gift-money I put in the graduation card, the more garbage I’m allowed to throw around on the graduate’s YARD!

Some comments blamed the mess on COUNTRY MUSIC listeners.  Yes… THAT’S it, right?  And I guess all West Virginians really ARE related and have 1 tooth!  NOPE!

Let me take a minute to explain who the people are that left this garbage!

They are people who spent $329 on beer, $221 on food, $183 on bags of ice, rented DJ’s and RV’s and built customized corn hole games, wore $550 cowboy hats and boots and even spent $15 on lighted necklaces but thought NOTHING about paying $4.90 to get a box of trash bags that they could put their garbage in and leave at the lot for pick-up by official clean-upper-ers! (That’s my new word.. I own it.. feel free to use it as your own.)

These are also the same people who have a meticulously clean car and bitch if the kid drops a McD’s french fry between the seats!

These people do NOT need to be fined as some think.. they need to meet my grandmother who would think NOTHING of pulling the short hairs on the back of their neck, twisting them to inflict maximum pain, and not letting go until EVERY piece of garbage was in a bag!

And she’d be saying, “You better get this pig sty RED UP NOW, Ya Jagoff!!”
