Observations of Arlington on a weekday afternoon

    @NS: Why did you take photos of the bus stop? And imply you would take photos of the streetlamp if not driving?

    @NS: Given you have yet to follow thru with your promise (months ago) to never pay Arlingon Co property tax, and thus won’t be paying for your car decal, wouldn’t it be wise for you to move out of Arlington?

    Sorry – just got my casting call.

    What’s my line? Bags of bread to feed backyard chickens behind the Super Stop?

    I work from home (in Arlington) often and will sometimes walk around the neighborhood during the day to run errands or get lunch. One day on Fairfax Drive near the Williamsburg driveway I saw a minivan that had somehow “backed up” onto the sidewalk which had  it’s driver-side door pinned opened and bent back by a light pole. It’s difficult to describe. Did I think, “does this happen every day?” No. Stuff happens.

    And that is why the light pole is missing along Fairfax Drive. Also because the props department needed it on Wilson Boulevard for Carl to hump.

    Late to the game. Probably the most peculiar thing I’ve seen in terms of weekday Arlington-themed randomness was a couple years back when I was on my way to work at Vapiano. A guy about my age asking for a cigarette and in return, he passed me a rather large blunt he was smoking near the fountain in the Ellipse in Ballston. It smelled awesome, if I still smoked pot I’d have totally taken him up on that. I’ve seen people get lit in public before, but I was more confused as to why he was doing it like directly after the lunch rush when a bunch of people were out and about.

    A close second is the guy I saw jacking off on the Metro, but I think we may have passed Rosslyn by that point. The things you see on your way into DC to meet friends for lunch, I swear…

    Oops, almost forgot--if humping light poles for calisthenics is a topic of interest, y’all might want to get a load of this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o-50GjySwew

    Regular vs. Bizarre. Bizzare would be the crazy german guy running around naked. We know that this happens.

    Teapots, if you lived here, you would at least get the name right…

    Right I’m just some random guy who isn’t from Arlington who just happens to be posting here. LOL

    @mrteapots: please do not upset the Master Speller and Supreme Grammarian.

    Do things like this typically happen?

    In your mind, yes, they do. You’re what science calls a ‘biased asşhole’. You saw someone who was sick at a bus stop and simply assumed they were homeless because they were at a bus stop (among other things, I’m sure). You later saw someone doing something near a light pole and assumed they were dry humping it.

    Simply put, you’ve got a pretty fųcked up mind.

    @swag: I love you.  But not in the telephone poll sort of way. :-)

    Agreed.  I vote @Swag as Best Poster on this site.

    he was pretending to hump it. He was with a woman who was all embarrassed whiel he was doing it, she started walking away, and after a bit more he ran after her.
