Don’t Get Off The Interstates In SC

“DELIVERANCE” AWAITS …  South Carolina’s government-subsidized slogan used to be “Smiling Faces, Beautiful Places.”  Forgotten that?  It was on all the license plates … We’re not arguing with the beautiful places claim … the Palmetto State is home to some of the most aesthetically endearing places on the planet.  It’s…

“DELIVERANCE” AWAITS … 

South Carolina’s government-subsidized slogan used to be “Smiling Faces, Beautiful Places.”  Forgotten that?  It was on all the license plates …

We’re not arguing with the beautiful places claim … the Palmetto State is home to some of the most aesthetically endearing places on the planet.  It’s home to a lot of smiling faces, too … although it’s probably a good idea to beware of the hygiene and intent lurking behind those (frequently toothless) grins.

Anyway, if you have the misfortunate of traveling on an Interstate in South Carolina (20, 26, 77, 85 or 95),  word to the wise: Don’t get off.  Seriously.  Gas up at the Georgia or North Carolina border and just keep right on trucking … no matter how bad the roads get or how bad you’ve got to relieve yourself.

How come?

Well, a friend of ours forwarded us this snippet from the Facebook page of a female TV reporter/ producer …

Just walked into a gas station in the middle of nowhere on my way back to Greenville….and there stood a cop and 4 other men around the counter smoking weed. (Open flame in a gas station may not be the best idea…)

I grabbed water and went to check out… Awkward silence ensued. Until the officer observed the following.

“You’re not from around here. We don’t have your kind here. I know because you have pretty teeth.”

I feel like there should be a road trip to discover all these small towns…there’s some interesting characters in them for sure.

Whoa …

This website has consistently supported the decriminalization of all drugs … but on-duty police officers toking up at gas stations strikes us as more than a little bizarre.

Anyway, we’re glad the reporter/ producer got out of there alive … as it sounds like several of the inhabitants of this gas station (located near Fountain Inn, S.C.) were sizing her up with lascivious intent.  Even if none of them could define or spell “lascivious.”

Ah, “South Cack …”

RAPID REACTION

Bullshit. Sounds like more Facebook attention-whoring.

“You’re not from around here. We don’t have your kind here. I know because you have pretty teeth.”

Look, I don’t like cops as a general rule and I’m for legalizing drugs because I don’t think people should be told what they can and can’t put into their bodies….but the above quote is 99% likely to be total and complete bullshit.

Period. End of story.

Indict the whole state because of some of the dope heads you usually hail as anointed…typical.

Glad to see you fall all over yourself to keep from bashing us, in your attempt to show your leaderships…

Don’t believe this at all. Travelled through the Fountain Inn, Simpsonville area many times on business- even in the last few weeks. It’s actually a very nice area. Lots of well off folks that work in Greenville live in those rural areas- which – by driving through some of the subdivisions in the area- are very, very nice.

“You’re not from around here. We don’t have your kind here. I know because you have pretty teeth.”

C’mon….sounds like sub-par fiction, a shitty screen play, a Liberal fantasy. I guess in scene 2 they grab her with their dirty hands and carry her over to a pool table and have their way with her while the cop has his gun barrel in her mouth? Lookout Rachel Maddow, someone is gunning for your job.

Did you seriously write an article about something you heard from Facebook? I’m anxiously awaiting the article where we find out which Brady Bunch character you are.

At least tell the area or exit number to add some credibility to the information. Was it a Hwy patrol or local jurisdiction, was it a sheriff or local cop, color uniform or something.

FACE BOOK, a place for children to be children, and for “adults” to act like “drama queens”!

And if you believe this FaceBook story, why don’t you just slide on down to McKittricks Bridge for a wesson oil rodeo?

Now if it were Lexington County in question we might have to take this accusation a little more seriously.

Don’t even get me started on Lexington County Sheriffs Department! There are a lot of crooked officers that do underhanded sh*t just to get there numbers up and keep grant money! They have to justify their position on the Grant Teams so they screw the motoring public!

I’m from the West Coast and I don’t even find this to be credible at all. It’s just as fake as Top Gear’s Alabama trip episode.

So these folks couldn’t spell or define “lascivious.”. Well, FITS, here’s another ten cent word for you that describes this article and some of the others that you write:
“Apocryphal” I learned that at one of those SC “government-run schools” that you are always criticizing.

A better tip is to never get off the interstate in Georgia! Nothing good ever comes from being in that godforsaken state.
