Polite Mode

Post by Professor Roomie »

I ended my evening out having the first Brutal Hammer I've had in quite some time. I have not posted in a long time and planned to have that be my topic, but no, I encountered idiocy on my way home. Two guys were about to get into a fight in the alley, and there were cops directly behind one of them. I stepped between them and informed them that the cops were there, but they both told me that they didn't care. They both transferred their confrontational behavior over to the officers that were speaking to them. I would have stayed to see who actually got arrested, but I had switched from Beam-waters-no-ice to Brutal Hammers and no attention span for such nonsense. When the cops show up it is time to use your grownup manners. It's how I've never been arrested or sent to detox. Several of my friends have described it as me becoming instantly polite and reasonable. You can be a dick to your friends, but get your shit together when people with badges and guns show up. Or badgers. Those fuckers are mean.

It dulls pain, makes the sun shine brighter, and makes boring people more interesting.

So awesome to see an old-time legend post after a long absence. Welcome back!

Your advice is spot-on. I've done polite mode with many a cop, and avoided any troubles. There was the one time they were looking for a missing child, and an overly-enthusiastic young officer nearly bashed my door in with his baton, just to ask me if I'd seen her. His idea of a knock, apparently. The visible dents are still there. The front door still goes CRACK when I open and close it. Polite mode was essential. I would have had a word with his boss, but I only rent the door, so I figured, why raise a fuss.

I like that door. It has sentimental value, and I'd rather not replace it if I can avoid it.

Haven't yet met a badger. Knock on wood.

But please, not with a baton. Thank you.

Cheers.

I killed a badger once.
Somebody I know killed a badger with a shovel. Told me they have very tough necks

I am always polite with the police, they have to put up with a lot of shit. I am also less likely to have to put up with shit from them if I am polite. Turns out they get annoyed when asked repeatedly if they carry nunchucks though

in fact I think I am very polite in most situations that aren't social. In social situations I can be insufferably rude and crass

Well met indeed. Does this place still seems like home? The faces have changed, but the intention is the same, isn't it?

Damn fine place to cut loose.

Good advice, as these folks can bring ANY party to a screeching halt.

Wise words.

I rarely use the word "sir" in life. But when the cops show up, I use it generously.
Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Give a drunk man tortilla chips, Velveeta and a hair dryer and he has nachos.

I, too, tend to proper up the manners when the po-po show. They way I figure it, they deserve the respect, hell they don't want to be at your house on a Saturday night at 3 AM any more than you want to see them there. If you have enough sense to straighten up and use your big boy manners, you usually get a pass. If you're an asshole, hey ya get what's coming to you.

My friends told me that I have very open, friendly and generally nonchalant way of speaking to cops. However this is just generally how I act towards people I do not know while drunk.

Oettinger and german cops will never be friends. And we both work hard at it staying that way.
If my skin colour or accent was any different I surely would be much more cautious though

My Father is a retired Sheriffs Deputy. Haven't had to speak to a law enforcement officer in an official capacity in quite some time.

I'd kinda like to keep it that way. Safer for everyone...

Brutal Hammer. 7oz vodka to 5oz red wine... Had to look that one up in Mixology.

I have some home-made apple wine and about 7oz of vodka left...

Hmmm....

Apple Hammer?

Damn, I haven't been around here nearly enough, I think I spent five minutes looking for a "Like" button.

"Granny Smith Mjolnir!" I love it.

I don't know where to find apple Wine, so I think I'll just have to throw some vodka into some Applejack. Think I'll call it a Johnny Applebleed.
