    I knew Stoughton is tough, but when you have to drink and drive to get around those buildings it's REALLY tough.

    Usually most of the time something like this you would expect to blame a driver from either East Boston or South Boston!lol
    Malden,Stoughton,Fall River and Waltham would be secondary guesses!LMAO

    before i retired, my 2 stops were Chinatown, and then to Southie..i had to pass a pub or 2 on my way to the southie stop. there would be a very tight, 90 degree right turn i had to make, and cars parked on BOTH sides, and that street was already narrow as it was..now add in snow plowed to the curbing and now you got maybe enough room for a moped, let alone a 53 footer.

    well usually on friday nights, the guys in the pub would hear my truck coming down the street, and they'd pile out to watch me make that turn..

    i must have impressed them, cuz they all cheered me for not flattening thier cars...lol

    and if any of them "betted" on me to do so, i must have ticked them off, cuz i'd get the old fashion Italian arm salute....

    which i am not sure i can post a picture of that here...lol..........:biggrin_2559::biggrin_2559::biggrin_2559:
