Chuck Lorre

Slams L.A. Freeway Workers

You're All Lazy Aholes!!!

11/8/2013 7:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The guys working on L.A.'s famously crowded 405 Freeway are all a bunch of lazy, unproductive pissbags who are SCREWING millions of commuters every single day ... so says legendary sitcom creator Chuck Lorre.

FYI -- the 405 has been under construction for years (you may have heard about Carmageddon in 2011 and 2012) ... and Monday night, Lorre unleashed the fury that had been building for years in a Vanity Card that aired during the CBS shows "Big Bang Theory" and "Mom."

The card reads, "Dear Guys Working on the 405 Freeway, How's it going? I only ask because you started work over five years ago to add more lanes and, well... there aren't any."

"I've also noticed that on most days you're not actually doing anything. Is it possible you've grown bored with the project?"

Lorre continues, "From my untrained eye, you appear to be understaffed. Perhaps you might consider hiring a few thousand more guys and work in 'round the clock shifts, instead of, you know, just when you feel like it. Also, to avoid angry commuters flipping you off, how about giving them a heads up when you close an off ramp for no apparent reason? (Maybe a few miles in advance instead of a hundred yards.) And finally, I need to ask a small favor. Several times a week I crawl along the ol' 4-nication-05 with a bladder that is near to bursting."

"How about we work out a system where I, and other urinary-challenged drivers, get to pull over and share your port-a-potties? Maybe we can repay your hospitality by bringing you fresh magazines to read while you're in there working."

Pretty aggressive -- and the freeway project is reportedly more than 16 months behind schedule -- but is it justified?

Lorre's no stranger to conflict -- he famously battled with Charlie Sheen back in 2011 and recently felt Roseanne's wrath when she blasted him on Twitter for allegedly stealing one of her jokes.

Lazy? You’re a crap writer for T.V shows. Big deal you wrote Two and Half Men. Congrats. That definitely contributed to the greater good of this city and mankind. Your such a hack I had to Google you. Here's an idea, go back to your "grueling' life purpose and leave the real work to the big boys. Don't talk about something you don't know unless you want to put a hard hat on and get your hands dirty. I bet the hardest part of your day is not getting foam on your latte.

CalTrans - government workers. What do you expect? Would have been finished at half the cost if they contracted privately.

Chuck don't blame the workers Blame everyone. No one wants to pay for infrastructure. The City of LA has no Money, California has no money, The US Government does not want to Pay for it, the tax payers can't afford to have their taxes raised. So here is what is suggest. In 2011 During the big Debt Celling debate where the US Credit was Downgraded, Hollywood received Billions of dollars in Stimulus Money, Put some of that toward fixing your Freeway.

A lot of the highways in Delaware are the same way. No one is working except for the lady who holds the flags to direct traffic.

They can get the work done when they want to. After a section of the 10 Freeway fell down in an earthquake, they worked around the clock and got that sucker back up ahead of schedule.

Who in the heck does this guy think he is??
Does he know that nobody cares what he writes in his Vanity Cards? And vanity it is, indeed.

When Mr. Lorre gets a REAL job, rather than the make believe play acting nonsense he produces, he can comment. Blue collar working Americans enable him to have the luxuries in life he enjoys, but apparently doesn't appreciate when he has to detour to the next exit, or ends up 10 minutes late to a manicure.

Chuck seems to be unhinged. If he hasn't seen a therapist already...I highly recommend one. He should come to Fla. They are still working on I-95. I don't know one state where the roads aren't being hacked up and re-surfaced. In my old home state they are still working on the LIE. Everytime, I visit, it seems like they haven't moved down the highway yet. He needs to get a life.

So this douche writes an angry letter to highway construction workers on something that only lasts one second. Wow, you got some big balls.
