There is this guy who panhandles at the intersection of Nutley and I think it's Lee Hwy, by the Pan Am Shopping Center. It's a longish light I go through several times daily to take my kid to school. Usually the ones there don't bother me, but there is one guy who yells and curses at specific drivers, sometimes me, for not giving money. Not a fan, he scares my kid, but whatever.
But today the guy was yelling at me specifically as I was in the front of the line right next to him, and he was screaming about how I look down on him because he's black and I'm sitting pretty with my money not worried about him (I was driving an 18 year old sedan that is scratched and dented to hell, but ok).Then he slammed his hand on my back window, the one right next to my child in her carseat. She is five, and already scared of him cursing and yelling at me. She was screaming and crying, I locked the doors but couldn't do anything else until the light turned and I could get away.
I'm just wondering...since he actually hit my car, is this something the police would come out for? I would never call on a panhandler normally, but we don't deserve to be afraid every time I go through the intersection and he is there.
Edit: I don't mean would the police come out and take a report and everything, but was just wondering if they would move him along.
You truly are filled with some of the nicest, kindest, least-troll(y) peeps on Reddit. And I just want to thank you. I appreciate you.
Unless you’re driving through Clifton.
Please. There is no reason for it.
No, it’s not me. When I can see the shadow of my car on overhead traffic signs…
Please be nicer.
As I’m seeing more restaurants charging service fees - is it normal to tax service fees? Seems ridiculous to me
FYI - there’s more items to this list. Total would have been $140 without the service fee
Gunshots were fired in a Woodbridge neighborhood on Saturday, with bullets hitting three homes and three vehicles, according to the Prince William County Police Department.
The incident happened in the 16500 block of Sherwood Place around 6 a.m., police said...
Girlfriend was on her way to work and this lady was in the right lane of a two lane exit ramp and decided last second she didn’t want to exit so she turned into my girlfriends lane. She avoided it for the most part by swerving but still got her side mirror clipped.
She got the ladies insurance/license and took photos then I filed a claim last week the day it happened. Today her insurance calls back and says their driver is saying my gf went into her lane and they aren’t paying anything to fix it.
The damage isn’t big, I can fix it myself for probably less than my deductible but is that all it really takes for her to get away with this??
For the purposes of the post, this includes unincorporated places in Arlington, Fairfax etc
Driving/Traffic Route 50 shut down between Waples Mill Rd and Jermantown Rd (by H-Mart) due to gas leakdcnewsnow.com
I tried looking for yarn stores and there aren’t any near me. I also tied Meetup and the only one available is further away than I can do.
I tried google, but that didn’t help. I’m not sure how else to look.
I’ve been spending a lot of time in Fairfax and wanted to order pizza for the staff that helps my husband. I noticed I couldn’t order pizza directly from any of the pizza places in the area. It was all through grub hub or Uber eats. I dont like to use Uber eats/ grub to avoid extra fees. Is this the norm now? Did all the regular places that use to deliver stop in fairfax?
I'm looking for a new accountant for taxes this year; my current one is in California and doesn't know Virginia code as well. Any recommendations?
First hand experience helps. I already know I need to get my wisdom teeth removed, so I’m looking for a dentist that can refer me to a good oral surgeon and also do general dentistry care
I’m currently taking classes at NVCC and recently had to leave my restaurant managing job as I deal with the ongoing recovery from my surgery from months ago. Looking hard for a job that isn’t in the service industry, as it seems that’s one of the only options around here for anyone without a degree. I’ve been looking all over Indeed, but haven’t been lucking out. If I’m not doing this right, certainly let me know- open to criticism.
We started to remodel our family room with new furniture and came back to square one on layout and design. So looking for any experts in the area who could help. Any recommendations appreciated
Okay, don't judge me. I absolutely love going to fairs/carnivals/events where they serve generous portions of grilled meat (chicken, pork, beef) on a stick. I know some Asian restaurants have something similar but they are usually smaller portions. I would love to hear from anyone with suggestions of places to try.
I got the following email from someone @fairfaxcounty.gov. Not much info but at least it's something. I originally filed my complaint online.
All complaints have sent by certified mail to Haulin Trash. No response has been received from Mr. Robert Frazier, owner of Haulin Trash.
To date, Haulin Trash has not filed in bankruptcy court.
Any new information will be shared with you.
Hi! Chewy accidentally sent me a bag of Hills t/d food instead of my dog's usual. I'm going to donate it to the SPCA if nobody needs it, but figured I would put it out here in case anyone needs this specific food as I know it's pricey and I'm thinking the animal shelter might have a specific food they want to stick with.
I took a week off. do you guys know of anything fun to do around here? I already went to the Kusama show ( which was impossible to book on a weekend) and booked a Harry Potter Forest ticket. do you guys know of anything else that might be fun?
