Re: FFX County Fire Fighters Begging at Intersections In the Roads Causing Accidents

My bad. You're right.
You can observe the same absolute statements in many of the comments prior to mine. So don't go singling out me as the sole offender of your sacred standards. .r
Sure, some people take a few bucks here and there. and that's sad. And some people think that everyone steals, or that everyone begs and that there's car accidents at every intersection.
Like you said, absolutes are always wrong (a paradoxical statement, no?)
But if you think about all the bitching and griping going on, it begs to be considered just how many are. If I was a betting man, I'd bet that those claims are the exception. Yes, a ton of money is dropped off. And there's several eyes and hands on it until it's handed off the the police-escorted collectors who count and deposit it off at the bank at the end of the night.
Are the exceptions, always (another contradiction?)
But one thing is without contradiction:
The citizens and visitors of Fairfax county has given more money towards the "fill the boot" campaign than any other jurisdiction anywhere else in the country. And they have been for years. And on top of that, if they weren't #1 then they were #2-3 consistently within the last decade.
So continue with your dealings in absolution. Be it whether every fireman is egging, causing rear end collisions, or buying plasma TVs and getting blowjobs from fat volunteers.
While you're being a curmudgeonish asshole, also be proud you support a charity once in awhile. And that you're part of a community that does a superb job at it.
Also, work In getting a fucking life for once.
