      No, it’s just that if an ordinary person did that, a Guard wouldn’t allow you to do it. But since they’re Guards, who’s going to stop them?

      I bet you’re a Guard, aren’t you?

        Not at all but it’s fair enough to be allowed eat during a 10 hour shift!

        They need to be close to the car incase of a call and I’d personally rather they didn’t spend 5 minutes looking for parking that they could instead be more productive, delivery vans do this all the time aswell but I’m yet to see a post about them doing it :P

            No he’s not. Unless the point is mild passive aggressiveness at members of the Gardai, in which case I think we all get the point.

            Tell us, O sage – what is the point being missed?

            OMG look the guard is double parked!

            People have little to worry about if the thought of a guard taking a few mins off from chasing scumbags to have a f**king ice cream has them up in arms. I hope it was suitably delicious – gwan the lads.

    I’ve seen a Garda van zoom passed with lights and sirens, after they left a Chinese take away with their food.

    Wouldn’t want it to get cold now…

          Excuse my frivolity, Sheila. What I meant was your story was excruciatingly banal and the next time you feel the urge to vomit such banality onto the internets, perhaps restrain yourself. Good talk!

            You, on the other hand, are a constant source of the highest and continuously entertaining wit. Please keep up your unwarranted berating, it shows how much better you are than other people.
            Well done you.

    Eh, they haven’t double parked. They are on a double yellow, which is different.

      Ahh, the old “she’s bending over to look at the child in the buggy but it looks like she is giving the bloke in front fellatio” camera angle trick, am I right. ;)

    But I thought all cops were completely broke ??? (According to John Healy-Rae anyway)

    Murphys Ice-Cream is seriously expensive.

  5. Am I still on This Island

    Seriously good Ice Cream in fairness, but It’s about €3.50 start poor Gardaí. Struggling on their 45k per Annum salary!

    I know this isn’t a big deal as such, and a lot of real ar****les do this sort of thing all the time; buy these ar****es have a paid responsibility not to behave like the absolute pr***s they clearly are.

        This is the attitude. ‘Sure who’s gonna stop me?’

        Minor things like this send out a signal to the average Joe which undoes much of the hidden good that the Guards do.

    They were parked there from 12.00 to around 13.30, at least. Not exactly a subtle stakeout.

    They deserve it.
    I tip my hat to the Guards in Dublin; trojan lads.
    I tip hat in a slightly different direction with a single finger attached to the ones in Mayo, however.
