i would feel awkward in the interim, but i would pay what i could now, and come back with the rest later. happened just the other day at the pot store. i came up $2 short and the guy was like “don’t worry about it” and proceeded to take it out of his tip jar. i died a little inside but he was really cool about it. a week later i came back in and gave him the $2 and tipped some extra on top of that for the kindness. he really appreciated it. i think that would have been completely acceptable here, too

i would think that they wouldn’t want to be bothered by the police, though. i assume driving around like this is going to attract unwanted attention more than just having a plate on there. but perhaps i’m just a confused pleb and they have it all figured out

i know. as much as it might not seem that way, i’m actually a reasonable person.

stuff like this only riles me up because my brain immediately jumps (perhaps a bit irrationally) to the scenario where i get into a hit and run and it just so happens to be with the guy with no license plate. or i get hit walking in the street. i know that’s a lot to project on to every driver out there who for whatever reason doesn’t have a plate but i’m not perfect, we all have our thing. this is my little battle to fight. i’m well aware i’m in the minority

also yeah i was responding to your comment at lunch but i typed out a craaaazy rambling post and at the end i was like ??? why did i just do that so i just discarded the draft and went back to eating and then i never followed up.. i’m glad that two people provided context; one for the general and one for the specific

follow up from my post the other day that you all loved…..

based on the responses to that post, i assume most of you will think there’s nothing wrong with this? i’ll be curious to see which direction this one goes!

while that may be true for your neighbor specifically, it is also the general rule. natural ice cans and fireball nips are the two pieces of litter that i consistently see on the side of the road while i'm biking. the (not so) funny thing? i live in south portland and i do most of my biking in cape elizabeth. so, we're not just talking about out in the mountains or the county. it's a statewide plague
