Just when you thought it was safe to go into the gene pool.

.... I read this in the Salt Lake Tribune yesterday. A 21 year old guy comes out of his house to find someone has spray painted obsenities on his brand new Aveo. Now, instead of thinking "Hey, you really can't hurt the looks of something that ugly", he gets mad. His second mistake was not going straight to either the police or the parents of the three 12 year-olds he believes did it. Nope. Instead he gets his 16 year-old cousin, finds the three kids, puts them in a headlock and throws them in the back of the car. Then they take them to an auto bodyshop on Redwood Road and they call one of the kid's mothers. Demanding $1,000 for repairs in return for her kid.
.... After about an hour, the kids were returned safely and the duo was arrested. Not suprisingly, they've been charged with kidnapping. Duh.

What a strange story. Sorry to say that I found it a bit amusing.

I dunno. I kinda like his method. There've been a few times I would've liked to try something like that.....

Max said...

Yeah, I found it amusing too. Although I didn't blame the guy for thinking about doing something that stupid, Lord knows I've thought about a few times myself. But unlike you, Writer, myself and 99% of the rest of the population, he actually thought it would be a good idea to do it.

I went with my other English teacher friend to see James Blond tonight, so we'll have to call it off for next Friday.
However, she wants to have a barbecue next week and she wants you to come. When will you know your work schedule for evenings?

Max said...

Good play? The barbeque sounds like fun, I'm free Wed and Thu all day, and I get off work at 6pm on Sat. Any of those days will work for me, just let me know.

I had someone write a few things in the dirt on my car during the raining weeks out at Granite, and someone wrote something in red permanent marker on my hubcap, which I have yet to figure out how to get it off. I was/am a little frustrated, but I resulted down to eventually washing my car and not looking at that hubcap until I figure out what to do with it.
