Driver sets that rules. Driver can call out any rider in line, or reject any driver in line without cause.

You shouldn't have to wait until they get in your car to tell them anything. When you pull up to announce your destination, or when they open the door to get into your car, you should just say, "I'm sorry, I won't be able to take you today." Then ask who's next. Hopefully, they'll avoid your car the next time you arrive at the line. If not, just repeat the same thing.

Galah,
It's apparent the S'Pants recognizes and admits he/she has issues in getting along with some in the slugging world. That's a big first step.

If certain slugs push S'Pant's issues button that much, S'Pants has every right to pick up only slugs he/she can tolerate by either forming a car pool or being brave enough to "will call" slugs that don't disturb him/her. That's what several of us recommended.

Also, a good anger management therapist might be able to help S'Pants address the issues and help him/her become more tolerant of others.

Tolerant? Who wants to be tolerant!

Tolerance has gotten all confused and mixed up with the idea of personal rights. You have a right to vote, a right to an education, a right to live where you want and do the work that pleases you. You can pursue happiness and believe in whatever God you like.

But you don't have a right to be a boor, to ignore the generally held societal norms, to annoy other people with your (music, opinions, bodily parts, etc.), or to act any way you want just because "it's a free country."

S'pants (who is not Squarepants, mind you,) is not being intolerant of others. I'd say he's doing his best to avoid a confrontation with idiots. He's not the problem; the problem is the people who think they can act any ole way they want in public, just because.

SpongeBob, I was just going to say the same thing. And truth be told I think almost everyone feels the same way. There were very good suggestions on how to avoid these undesirables. He just needs to implement one of them.

Here's another point of view on this subject: SLuggie_pants should have said something to the offending slugger at the very start. The slugger will then avoid SLuggie_pants car knowing that he will be corrected and shamed again, unless he changed his behavior.

Some people are oblivious with their actions and need to be set straight, in a kindly manner, especially if you donít want deal with confrontation. Admittedly, Iíve had to be shown the light on certain matters, although not necessarily with slugging. As a driver you should not let the annoying behavior of others to slide Ė it will eat you up inside.

It's sad but we all can't get along.

I'd like to think I'm in the category of courteous and considerate drivers and sluggers. But then there's this other category...

OPEN FOR SUGGESTIONS -
****PLEASE HELP TO ORGANIZE BETTER PICKUP UP AT 234***
TO AVOID ONE LONG LINE OF CARS, to pick up ONE long line of slugs!
I SUGGEST DIVIDING THE SLUGGERS UP LIKE "HORNER ROAD".

LET'S CREATE 3 SPECIFIC LINES...I.E:

PENTAGON - (stet) - STANDS ON THE BLOCK (where EVERYONE USUALLY stands)
Drivers, will drive around to pick up sluggers as done before...

(stet) - SINCE, SOME DRIVERS DROP OFF SLUGGERS AT THE TOP OF FIRST ISLE
I SUGGEST THE FOLLOWING SPECIFIC SLUGGERS USE THE 2ND AND 3RD ISLES TO LINE UP...I.E: HERE'S THE PLAN!!!! ***********

14 STREET -
Drivers will enter 234, drive straight back, come up SECOND isle AND pick up slugs lined up AT THE TOP RIGHT SIDE OF that ISLE. Safe for sluggers to stand there, parking spots already filled.

La'Fant Plaza/OTHER destination -
Drivers will enter 234, drive straight back, come up THIRD isle AND pick up slugs standing AT THE TOP RIGHT side of that ISLE. Safe for sluggers to stand there too, those parking spots ARE filled.'

OPEN FOR SUGGESTIONS!!!
PLEASE HELP TO ORGANIZE BETTER PICKUP UP AT 234...
VERY ANXIOUS TO SEE YOUR RESPONSES!!!
