What are some slang terms used among police officers?
The most derogatory terms for the bad guys and citizens who are just pains in the rectum:A.H. = Adam Henry (A-dam H-enry) If you don’t get it…..sometimes you will hear it as “Jack Hole”…..now what starts with an “A” that ends with HOLE ?RICHARD CRANIUM= What starts with a “D” and is a nickname for Richard ? What is the non-medical layman’s term for the Cranium ? Do these clues HEAD you in the right direction ?
Can I renew my drivers license in a different town as long as it's the same State/County?
It’s a state issued license so it doesn’t matter which branch you go to anywhere in the state. Some places have other satellite locations. For example, in Connecticut and Massachusetts, you can go to certain AAA locations even if not a member. Have to pay $5 convenience fee. Look up on the Department of Motor Vehicles website for your state to see all the places where can renew your license.
Should you tip the driver of a car dealership's car shuttle service if he drives you to home and back?
When it comes to tipping, I really only heavily consider it if the person’s pay is reliant on tips. If so, I’ll tip accordingly. If their wages aren’t, I’ll express my gratitude for their service and upon talking to the customer service rep(s), I’ll let them know of the stand up job their driver did.There were only instances where I did tip a driver when I servicing my car. The first was when I dropped my car off early one morning before being driven to work. I asked the driver if he was able to stop at a small shop so I could grab a quick coffee and offered to pay for his coffee as well. He agreed to stop, but declined the coffee as it often gave him heart problems. Upon getting to my office I expressed my thanks again for the drive and the quick stop. I then gave him some cash and said “your lunch is on me” and again expressed my gratitude for the stop.The second was when I left my house keys on the chair of the customer service representative. Of course neither of us realized it until I got to my front door and couldn’t get in. Thankfully the driver was slow to leave so I a chance to run back to the vehicle. He drive me back to the dealership to get my keys, then back home. I gave a tip and a million apologies for my bone-headedness.Generally speaking, as most people simply go from point A to point B and that this is a service being offered by the dealership/establishment, the drivers generally receive a fair wage and thus don’t fall in the realm of the customer needing to tip the driver. While you can, you’re not obliged or even asked to.
What does it feel like to be in a high-speed car crash? Did you hit a car, or were you hit by another car? Did you drive into a stationary object?
I was driving back from college for Thanksgiving break when I was involved in my serious wreck. It had rained the night before but the roads were not really wet anymore. I was on a highway and as I started to switch lanes I hydroplaned due to a small space between the concrete of the lanes (idk how it was big enough to even make me hydroplane). So one second I was going 75 MPH and the next thing I know I am sideways on the road. I look out my driver-side window and see that I am headed straight for a telephone pole. I quickly thought “Okay, this can only end two ways: (1) I will die from this impact or (2) I will be paralyzed from it.” I took a deep breath and said something that my friends and I would say in high school when trouble was a major possible outcome. So I outloud and calmly said “well I hope this works out.” Luckily my tires were on the shoulder, which was grass, and it was wet enough to allow my car to slide down enough to where I missed the pole by inches. Right after watching my car barely clear the pole I let out some air as relaxation then all of the sudden…my car flipped 4 times and slammed into a concrete drainage ditch. I remember seeing everything too. From the windshield braking, dirt flying around, to all my stuff getting tossed about. Upon impact I got out of the car feeling just fine and with only a surface scrape smaller than the size of a dime on a knuckle. The police and emergency crews were telling me I needed to sit down since I had to have broken something and was just in shock so I could not feel it. However, I didn’t get hurt at all (outside of the surface scrap). They said that the fact that I was so calm and chill during it saved my life as they had never seen anyone walk away much less uninjured from a wreck like that in the 25+ years they had been doing their jobs.
