Dissed Trains Rolling In

Discussion in 'Metal Heads' started by MONSTERKIDZ, Jun 12, 2002.



    I'm not sure if this is the right place for this BUT.
    maybe the last 2 months or so, we've been noticing almost every boxcar rolling
    in to this one layup with a piece on it destroyed with flat black, just squiggly lines
    throughout the piece and all tags blobbed out..
    first few times we just covered them up with new pieces thinking it was
    some shit that happened in another state..but then we went to bench in our
    main yard and saw a car we just hit with the same thing done to it..
    and we noticed that like id say 3 out of 10 pieces in that yard were destroyed..
    so what i m tryin to say i guess is that, looks like workers or a worker out here
    is fed up with graff on trains...and it sucks cause that is a MAIN yard and i know that
    alot of traffic is goin thru there.....

    same shits happening in s.florida. everything that rolls in is crossed out with squiggly lines and shit. they leave the ugly shit alone, but all the pieces and tags that have any stule, are crossed out. its sabotage...the workers are tyring to make fl look wack or something....bastards

    The solution to every problem relating to buffing, dissing, hating, internet shit talking, etc:
    Paint more trains.

    If you know your lines and what cars go where, and you can nail down the location of the diss-happy worker, focus your efforts on trains that are not headed his way. I've had to do this myself. There is no punishing workers for dissing freights - that would bring absurd heat (and is a federal crime - workers are technically federal employees). Nobody should get any dumb ideas about beatdowns for a worker dissing freights. Just shrug it off and paint more, and if you can, paint smarter by learning where he is and what cars are going the other way.

    Bad idea. Then the writer you went over, who may not have seen or known it was ragged, directs his anger at you.
