Chicken Assault Vehicle - Day 2

It's still on the courthouse square. It's still kinda blocking traffic. I still don't understand it.

I'm a little annoyed. It does nothing for the square, not saying much. However, who thinks they can just come in and hi-jack the square like they own it with this piece o'crap.
Let's boycott the new digs before it even opens. Come on are you with me!!! Let us join together!!





Forget it, I'm sleepy.........

Wasn't there a bit of a Courthouse flap a few months back where Decatur PD was marking cars and ticketing those folks who had their car on the squre for over 2 hours?

Did someone give these guys a special permit to park there?

Where's Rex when you need him?

I don't understand why this "thing" is allowed to almost block the turn area. It is parked in the worst possible spot. Who even wants to look at it? Why is it trucks can park anywhere they wish?... like in the ROAD in front of Whataburger, IHOP, or Pizza Hut. Anyone else parks there..and I do mean PARK.. would get a ticket! Right officer???

If this isn't regulated from the city of Decatur, maybe the courthouse crowd can shed some light on it.

Go ask the county judge.

The chicken people must not understand that they really don't have to advertise that there's a NEW restaurant where Mattie's used to be. All Decatur-ites are very aware. Apparently, the truck is doing nothing but gaining them negative publicity...I'm no marketing genius, but maybe they should move it now.

That new restaurant is NOT Babe's chicken place. The Babe's people opted out because that building needed extensive work. The restaurant going in is called Sweetie Pie's Ribeyes. (Named after a champion bull/steer, Sweetie Pie) It will be a steak place and the owners have completely gutted and renovated the building. Classy place now! I don't see that the "weird" truck parked across the street has any connection whatsoever with that restaurant. Someone needs to call a tow truck! It is definitely an eye sore!

Anon 12:47 you must live in a cave. Sweetie Pie Ribeye's is owned by the same man that owns the Babes restaurants in Sanger, Roanoke and somewhere else??? They are trying to "class up" Decatur a bit by bringing something other than fried food to you people. Just sit back and let it come in. You don't have to go just because they build it. I'll enjoy a night without all you acting like you never saw a "real" steak before! You Wise County folks are funny!

I am PISSED! I parked on the square in my police car while in court. My FULLY MARKED POLICE car from a large city down I-35. (need i say FWPD) and I got a freaking ticket from the local DPD. I should not have left my car there that long, and I except responsibility. BUT<<<<<<<< I drove by this morning on my way to work and saw what Barry was talking about. It is blocking the view of traffic and if EVERYONE advertised like this the square would be crowded. It is B.S. that Chief Rex Hoskins allows this. Typical for Chief Rex Hoskins and the City. They all think their shit don't stink! I live in the city and want to say that Chief Rex Hoskins is a lazy son of a b^@ch. I have a complaint getting ready for the city administrator Bret Shannon and am sure that dear ol Bret will sweep it under. MOVE THE STUPID CHICKEN WAGON REX< IT WON'T TAKE YOU AWAY FROM THE TABLE LONG!

1:17PM, do you not venture out of Decatur? What of Cow Camp Steakhouse?

Babes is frozen crap. Of course you probably think Chili's is a culinary delight.

Keep messin w/ Daniel! he will get his newly aquired illegials to mess you up!

12:47 I happen to know Rex and he is a very good guy. I think he does a great job as the chief. He keeps things running smoothly in Decatur. I am sure if the chicken wagon was a traffic hazard it would have been removed. What is up with the cheap shot about the table? I bet if you or your family were involved in an accident in this city he would be one of the first ones there trying to save your ungrateful butt!

1:54 Cow camp has decent food if you get it "to go". Some don't like to inhale smoke from a near by table and enjoy their food at the same time. Why spend 25-30 bucks a plate when you can't enjoy it and go home spelling like an ashtray. I'll hand it to you...they have great steaks, their set-up just sucks. Without a non-smoking section my family and I don't go there. It is my hope that Chili's isn't a culinary delight by anyone's standards. Yuk! At least they make a good margarita! I prefer the Chop House or Del Frisco's for really good cut of beef. Hopefully this place will not disappoint and at least give us Wise Countians a decent place to eat without driving into the metroplex.

AMEN 1:54 why are smokers so rude, hey news flash white trash your going to die stop. I wish all food places would go non smoking, good call smoking goes along with their IQ!

Oh, ok...so I'm busted with a typo! The world may come to an end! LOL! I think everyone knows I meant "SMELL" like an ashtray!

My spouse and I went to Cow Camp once. We were hoping to have a bottle of wine with dinner.....no such luck. One of the waitresses had, the night before, served alcohol to a TABC guy without asking for ID or a membership. BUSTED! So, instead of having wine with dinner we had smoke. I'll give them this much...the steaks were cooked exactly as ordered. But until we can enjoy our dinner smoke-free we won't go back.

You guys need to get a life!! So who really cares if the Babe's chicken wagon is on the square? It is a marketing ploy to get folks up there to check out Sweetie Pie's. By the way the building renovations look awesome! And while I am at it get off Rex's ass! He does a good job and I don't see anyone trying to take over his position or oust him out of office...

Good riddens! You have to have thick skin to hang around here. 'Specially if you ain't from these parts!

You really think some invisible line is going prevent smoke from migrating in a restaurant? Especially in a single, closed ventilation system. You keep thinking that, Mr. Quixote.

And if you're that adverse to smoke, why are you living here? Stepping outside in this county is like sucking directly on a diesel smokestack. Which I'm sure you have a lot of sucking experience.

People who smoke aren't "bad people." Gime me a break. They are simply addicted to something that is specifically made to be addicting and it relieves stress! Once your hooked, it is extremely DIFFICULT to quit. It is not the smokers fault, it's the establishments' fault for allowing patrons to smoke inside.

The word is "RIDDANCE" as in "Good riddance to bad rubbish."

There is no such a word as "riddens" other than perhaps in Wise County.

You're welcome!

Following your logic it would make no difference to you whether the guy passing gas while hacking and sneezing on an airplane was sitting next to you or 20 rows away from you. You can bloody well trust, it most assuredly matters to me how far away the gassy guy harking up lung snot is sitting from me.

Anonymous said...

6:26PM, an airplane is a excellent example of how no matter where you sit you'll get exposed to everything else on the plane. Aircraft have poor ventilation systems and recycle the cabin air without any sort of filtration or fresh air introduced into the cabin. It is well documented. Infectious vectors do not care about invisible lines, either.

When the gassy, diseased guy is sitting 20 rows away, you don't smell the farts like you do when he is sitting in the seat next to you. Just like you don't smell the smoke when the smokers sit at the back of the restaurant.
Proximity does matter when you are referencing disgusting odors.

As for disease-causing agents, you are correct; they are still floating in the air in a closed environment. However, the incidence of infection is lessened the further away you are from the source.
Again, proximity does matter when you are referencing disease-causing agents regardless of being bacterial, viral, parasitic or carcinogenic.

I am certain the other passengers on the airplane will appreciate you volunteering to sit next to the stinky diseased guy.
