Rough towns. All three of them. I live outside Flint and I go out of my way to stay away from the north end of Flint and certainly NEVER after dark. Crazy stuff goes on there and people end up shot and/or dead in other ways. It's one of the most violent cities in America according to the FBI.Z_Eggineer said:
Used to work in Mid-Michigan. Idk if I would ever want to move to Saginaw, Flint, or even Detroit.
We used to have a joke at work. "Let's take a road trip down through Saginaw, then Flint, and then Detroit. We'll call it Survivor!"

Probably should have left well enough alone and not said anything. I guess being an Indian born on the Pine Ridge Indian reservation in South Dakota I felt a little taken a back by the Injun comment. I am a pretty lighthearted person and don't mind joking around about my heritage, but thought the slur might have been over the top. Didn't mean to ruffle feathers and apologize for not just leaving this alone. Hope you all can forgive me and we can carry on about egging.
I'm sorry if I put you off a bit. IMO, things have sunk into a politically correct swamp where a lot of people are looking for reasons to be offended, a lot of people are walking on eggshells for fear of offending anybody and still other people are busy warning the eggshell walkers that they might have broken a shell (offended somebody).
My take was that the OP was trying to be humorous. Perhaps it's easy for me because he didn't say "polock". I wouldn't care if he did. "Stupid polock", would have been fightin' words though!
My apologies to the OP for the hyjack. FWIW, I like apple and cherry.

A little less on the drama please. I'm polish and I don't give a rip if a wave of pollock jokes roll through. I'll start it off, "Why did the pollock oil his brakes? Because they were squeeking!" Ouch. That was hurtful. Spare me!tyenic1 said:Not sure using the term "Injuns" is appropriate! I understand you were joking, but might offend some.
