Louisa LaSalle spotted this beta Masshole (an alpha wouldn't have bothered at all with the back window) at Comm. Ave. and Chestnut Hill Avenue in Brighton this morning.
Drew Starr could only stare in amazement at this person's parking job on Mass. Ave. near the Christian Science Center today: Too far from the curb, in a handicap space and with "a crushed bike lane marker underneath."
Alex C. captured two Lamborghinis and a Ferrari whose drivers figured the absolute best place on Boylston Street to stop and compare the size of their, um, wallets this afternoon would be the bus stop at Clarendon Street. He reports:
I told them they were in a bus stop right after they parked there, and they were like "whatever."
State Police report stopping this guy on the turnpike in Weston today, add:
Don't be that guy ...
In response to a 311 complaint about some Massholish parking on G Street in South Boston (person consistently parking "between a driveway and a handicap spot" and basically taking up two spaces with one car), the city says:
There is no violation for being a bad neighbor. Sorry.
Welcome to Dot reports northbound traffic on Dot. Ave. came to a complete halt in Ashmont thanks to this stupid bus driver - except for the occasional driver who tried swinging round and driving on the other side of the street.
Kate Fussner reports she's kept her inner Masshole in check behind the wheel even as she now has to deal with a Roslindale-to-Dorchester commute, but that she realized with a start one day in the North End - when stuck walking behind a clot of tourists shuffling in search of a cannoli - that the snarling beast is no longer far from the surface and she's now as ready to hate everyone around her as the rest of us.
Josh Wardell watched in amazement this morning as the warning lights came on where the train tracks cross Main Street in Cambridge and drivers said "screw that" and just kept on going.
Wellesley Police report an officer pulled over this car cruising down Linden Street around 3:30 p.m. and issued the driver a citation for
driving like a moron failure to clean off the windshield.
Paul was kind of amazed to see how somebody park a scooter at the South Bay mall today.
After trying, but failing, to cut off a trolley at Linden Street and Comm. Ave. around 6:30 p.m., the driver of the Escalade could have backed off, let the trolley, and the other trolley coming from the other direction, through, then been on his way. But, no, of course not. As URNotinvisible shows, the guy got out of his land yacht and began yelling at the T driver.
As of 7 p.m., the T reported no problems due to yelling people standing on tracks, so presumably this particular logjam has been fixed (you didn't, however, ask about the signal problems at Park Street).
The Oxford English Dictionary has added "Masshole" to its lexicon, WCVB reports:
The term was added to the dictionary as a noun and is considered vulgar slang that is "a contemptuous term for a native or inhabitant of the state of Massachusetts."
UPDATE: A Boston Municipal Court judge set bail at $10,000 - the amount requested by prosecutors, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports, adds Stoughton Police ordered him to turn over all of the 17 guns he's registered to own, while the case is pending.
