    Makes me laugh. This has always been a pet peeve of mine.If I am driving in my car with no seatbelt I can get a ticket.Yet buses can pack you in like sardines,standing room only,and law enforcement has no problem with this. If I crash in my car with no belt is one person getting hurt,if a bus crashes how many get hurt???? am I missing something???

    This always gets my goat as well. I can't stand to see able bodied young men / men sitting while you see a family get on the bus and mom and dad are trying to balance a 5 yo and a 3 yo while standing, or an older couple fighting to hang on.

    Amen to that! On our recent trip, my 11 year old kept offering his seat to any women, and even a few able bodied men. Definitely to the older generation. My 14 year old just refused to take a seat in the first place. Anytime I wasn't sitting with my DD, I too gave up my seat. I can certainly stand on a bus for 15-20 mins so that the moms & grandmas can have a seat... it really steams me to see so many selfish guys out there. Their moms are probably either ashamed at the way they've turned out, or just plain out of their mind for having not trained them all accordingly in the first place, but then I say their dads too. Common courtesy and chivalry seem to have flown out the windows.

    I go Wed. to get mine done. Sending my son to private school so that should burn alot of it. The lottery, AC, quarters & the ponies will pay for the trip. (haven't let me down yet) If I'm going to play might as well have it pay for something worth wild!:thumbsup2

    Yep, the Kitchen Sink with a Dole Whip Float chaser! :thumbsup2

    :thumbsup2

    I always give up my seat and I have arthritic knees. That sometimes makes the bus rides tough, especially if there are a lot of jerky stops and turns, but I still can't sit while a woman or elderly person stands.

    I think I saw this place on Man vs Food!

    have pity on us in the uk.....i go to bed and when i wake up i have a small novel to work through....and then i think "yeh i have something to say about that "but then you get on about something else and the first thing goes out of my mind......i need to start staying up at night :surfweb:I'm still thinking about the curling.....

    now as for the bus dis dad man law i couldn't agree more... but i read a post on here before and so many people said that if they were on the bus first then it was their seat and if the moms with kids or older people wanted to sit then they should get to the bust stop quicker...or wait for the next one as they come very often...sorry but it just ain't the Disney way...

    i didn't even know they did the kitchen sinks so that will be on my list of new things to do in October and has any one eaten the 24 ounce porterhouse steak at the yacht club....we just don't do steaks that big in the UK and i was going to give it a try...any tips would be gratefully rec.

    now i got to wait 8 hours for a reply hahaha

    About six months after I moved down south I had my father pick me up just about every size available for the workshop.

    The best is when you've got your favorite 40 pound bag of flour slung over one shoulder and a bunch of bags in the other and you get the family of six (you know the ones that look constantly pissed off that you wonder "why are you here in the first place") who each have their own seat and refuse to have any of the kids sit on their laps even though they're all under 5y/o.

    It could have been worse, the group was almost named The Federlines.
    Uh Oh, looks like we have a dancer down!

    Would you like me to sing O Canada for you....:lmao:

    You need to wear some sweat pants or pants with an elastic waist, chew slowly and don't eat anything else on your plate until the steak is done, no need to fill up on potatoes or vegetables.:thumbsup2

    Good luck!!
