Crosby avoids chaos

Postby viva la ben on Sat Aug 10, 2013 10:57 am

Chaos averted as Crosby expedited at DMV

Crosby, there to renew his driver's license, became the beneficiary of a Pennsylvania DMV policy in which celebrities can be ushered to the front of the line if supervisors determine it would help in "keeping control and keeping disruptions to a minimum," a spokeswoman for the motor vehicles department told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

I read this on the P-G.

One, why was this on the front page? Two, more importantly, why was this even a story to begin with? Three, Ms. Campbell is an idiot.

he clearly barged in and saw the enormous wait and proclaimed in his big boisterous voice "IM SIDNEY CROSBY AND I AM NOT GONNA WAIT. LET ME CUT RIGHT NOW OR IM GOING TO PLAY FOR PHILLY"

Huh...I renewed my license this week, but opted for the Butler DMV (which is probably the same distance as McCandless for me). The Butler DMV was almost completely empty, and I had no wait time. However, it's very unlikely that I'll ever see a Penguin in Butler.

The real scandal here is that PA is giving a state ID to a foreigner.
I bet he wasn't even born in "Halifax" (wherever that's supposed to be).

Actually this is a good rule. Otherwise Sid would have been signing bra straps for 3 hours at the DMV.

Been here 8 years and still can't speak Murican, either, Crosby.

I'd much prefer that over the normal sit and wait routine. At least its something to do.

Oh, Sid! What were you thinking of mixing with the hoi polloi? Why didn’t you use your star power to arrange an off-hour, private meeting with the DMV folks, far away from prying eyes and wagging tongues? Isn’t it about time you got with the program and started acting like an entitled superstar?

Might be time for the person/s who made this decision to raise their hand for all to see.

Yeah, I don't see why this is a big deal.

Best part is guys like Boomer Esiesan (sp? - f spelling his name right) and the NY Post and some others are acting like Sid walked in and acted like he was entitled.

This is a good rule, especially in the social media age. One person tweets or posts a picture on facebook, and next thing you know, everyone is going to the DMV to get a pciture.

Story from neutral site like Deadspin and Yahoo: Sid moves to the head of the line for driver's license.
