Havin' A Bad Day

2008-01-24 - 10:41 a.m.

So I'm in the drive-thru at the local Taco Bell. It's close to midnight, I'm done with work, and all I want to do is grab some dinner and go home.

I'm second in line. The car in front of me is giving their order. Suddenly, the passenger door pops open, and a shirtless guy gets out. He leans over the planter and rips a bush out of the ground. He shakes the dirt off and tosses the bush into the back seat.

I couldn't let this pass. I pull out of line and park, get out, and go knock on the door. The attendant with the headset came to the door and I let her know what had happened. Then I got back into the car and back in line.

When I made it to the window, I gave them the license plate number and explained in a little more detail. They told me the police had been called. And I thought that was it.

It wasn't. The dummies had parked in front of the Taco Bell to eat. They were sitting right there, bold as life, eating their food. I promptly went through the drive-thru again and informed them of this new development. They thanked me and I went home.

No idea if the fools were arrested or not. At some point, I'll need to find out.


More stupid criminal stories from

This lady robbed a bank and tried to make her getaway by getting on a bus. She was picked up while still waiting at the bus stop. Oops.

In Salt Lake City, a drug dealer decided to advertise by sending random text messages onto cell phones. She was caught when she sent one of those text messages to a police officer.


Brin's coming down for another visit. I have things to do.

Be seeing you.
