    Fred unable to get in from Newton until 7:40 like a real pro. Wallach left Framingham at 4:10 to get in, Fred didn't even get up until 5. You'd think after missing most of last week he'd at least try to get in.

    You could tell Rich was REALLY P.O.'d at Fred, but tried to hold it in a bit. Fred just doesn't give a flying F.

    His excuse was interesting... I ordered an Uber at 5:15 see?

    Unfortunately I think many of us work with a guy like Fred where they know Rich and Wallach will be responsible and get there on time so they'll arrive when they do.

    Yet he has the balls to publicly blast Bird for not sending him a Wake Up text.

    IT WAS 4:45!

    What moron thinks an Uber is going to be reliable in a good sized snow storm at the peak of the storm at 4:45am, I mean outside of Fred? I also found it funny this driveway "can barely fit two cars" yet he couldn't shovel enough to get his wife's SUV out of it. We've all been there, suck it up for 45 min and just do it as far as you need to and back out the SUV.

    You'd think Freddy Moneybags would have just stayed in the hotel they provided or hire an actual car service that is more reliable than Uber.

    Next time maybe just park the SUV 3 feet from the end of the driveway so you only have to shovel 3-4 feet out. Rich was pissed. The 9:55-10:10 crossover was awesome though.

    The crossover was hilarious but, to me, Fred comes across more like the typical guy who, before the storm, bitches about cancellations and parking bans but then rails against the weather guys once the storm comes and there are real issues.

    He probably went to sleep last night saying “stupid people preparing like this is gonna be some serious issue” but then blames everyone else once the storm actually delays him

    That would be cheaper than the two car garage that he clearly needs.

    I didn't hear the show this morning, however... I've never been a morning radio host, but it seems to me that having a plan to make sure you can be at the studio on time in the event of bad weather would be a pretty standard thing.

    Like staying in the hotel his company was going to pay for the night before? It wasn’t nice enough for him.

    Ouch. I find most of the radio workplace controversies to be pretty silly, but I would understand management and co-workers being legitimately upset.

    When Bird is on... Channel changes. I cannot believe their metrics show this guy as a positive.

    Holy shit, that crossover might have been the funniest thing I have heard on this show in a long long time.

    My wife works in Labor and Delivery, where missing work due to weather is really frowned upon: planning ahead like this in anticipation of a big storm has been a part of life for over 15 years.

    North Shore douche-bro Jared Carrabis got into it with Josh Kantor today too.

    Totally posted this in the wrong thread.

    Oh man, Josh is doing yeoman's work on twitter. Just calmly explaining again and again performer and composer rights to these absolute ignoramuses.

    I am a huge fan of PMT, but between this and the Miel thread, it's getting harder to support them.

    Is “get in the bathroom” a thing, and if I ever go to a bar in Southie again, can I reasonably expect to hear some 22 year-old who’s shitfaced at 2:30 in the afternoon on a Sunday yell it out?

    You realize you are asking someone about your age and level of washed this question right? If anything is a "thing" with 22-year-olds right now I assure you I am unaware of it.

    You know who Carrabis is, and your kid and liver are a little younger. I figured you knew all this shit.

    While it is true that I drink and I know things. I am completely unaware of this particular phrase. I am familiar with Carrabis though. We mixed it up a bit last year on Twitter. For a guy who likes to be brash, uber confident, and take shots at people, he has some gossamer-thin skin.

    I just looked at Kantor's twitter... wow. The response from fans and Carrabis alike is basically "eat shit asshole".


    edit: if it makes you guys feel better I'm 40 and have no earthly idea what "get in the bathroom" means. Or if it means anything at all.

    Such a fucking stupid thing to make a big deal out of too. Nobody cares if Carrabis just says 'my bad dude, we're never using it again starting in the next episode'. Dude has the same thin skin he makes fun of real media for having.

    "Put him in the bathroom" might have been a thing awhile ago.

    I thought "put him in the bathroom" was a reference to a Bronx Tale?

    Put him in the bathroom is from A Bronx Tale. I have no idea what "get in the bathroom" means unless it is a misquote of that movie.

    I’m put in mind of how fun it would be to reenact a different scene from that movie with these guys.

    Decided to check out the show today thru the download. According to the summary Adam Jones in. Automatic no. Read further on, more Bird. I can't even fathom a more unlistenable show!

    Jones has been in for Rich pretty much all week, which means I also listened to other things on my morning commutes.

    Fred relies heavily upon Bird for asinine content. It's like the show believes he's some sort of ratings generator. He's an oaf.

    I’ve enjoyed Ted Johnson filling in while Rich is out. I like his interaction with Fred better than the Wallach-Fred dynamic. And I like him much better than Jones who sometimes fills in.

    Ted is great. It's nice to see him healthy mentally and in a good place. He's got some great stories too.

    I think Ted is fine in small doses but there’s definitely some inner meathead and hot takes looking to get out. To his credit, he’s done a great job of morphing his demeanor to whoever he’s paired with. As a swing host he’s much more interesting than Flynn but that might because I’m used to him by now.

    JFC Fred and Wallach debating the projectability of Zion Williamson's skillset into the NBA is mind-numbing. Stay in yo lanes, boys.
