So after a busy morning of shopping and then lunch we were on our way out of downtown Everett when we drove by the Village Theater where I saw a young man (14-15) and he appeared to be drawing on the wall with a big black pen. As we drove by I said to Donna, "Is that little S*&^# writing on the wall?" She said" I think he was!" So I pulled over and dialed 911. I was so annoyed that this little disrespectful brat was tagging a wall and in broad day light. I couldn't let it go. This on the heels of seeing protesters on the news deface our state capital building in the name of "protest" . I was truly outraged. As I got on the phone with 911 and told them what I had seen they asked me to stay at the scene so I did. I tell ya, it took Everett Police Department all but 1 minute to get someone there. They had that hoodlum handcuffed and up against the wall before I could even say "Holly S*&&%!" Then the officer asked me if this was the kid I saw, what did I see him drawing and what color was the pen. I ID the kid and filled out a report. As I was sitting there filling out the report the police officer was really giving this kid the 3rd degree on what he was doing. All the sudden the kid started crying. I said to Donna "If I had done that when I was his age I would have been begging the officer to not call my parents and just take me to prison!" Donna said"me too!" I knew that prison would have been better then either of my parents coming to get me. Well this whole thing went on for about a half hour. They took the kid to lock up (I think that per his mothers request) and we were on our way to do a little more shopping! Another crime interrupted by the dynamic duo.
As we were wondering through one of our favorite thrift stores we decided that we were just tired and ready to go home. It had been a full day of crime fighting and shopping. When I got home The Hubs said "what are you going to do for dinner tonight" I looked at him like he had a 3rd eye growing out of his forehead and said "I'm tired!" "Do you realize I have been shopping and fighting crime all day?"
We went to town to eat! :-)
