My exciting excursion to the beach. Now with twice as many cops!
So I decide to go to the beach to chill from my palmetto experience. As I’m walking, I encounter a palmetto bug on the beach, so I chase after it screaming “THIS IS MY BEACH!” Satisfied, I begin to walk back home when a police car pulls up next to me. Awkward conversation ensues:
Office #1: “How you doing?”
Officer #1: “What are you doing?”
Me: “Uh, walking home?”
Police car slowly drives off.
So I continue on my walk home when I see my friend and boyfriend drive by me, returning from work. I chase after them into the parking lot of our apartment when another police car pulls in after my friend’s car, lights suddenly on. We look at each other confused until the police officer walks over to me.
Officer #2: “Do you have any part in this?”
Me: “Um, my boyfriend’s in the car.”
Office #2: “He’ll be with you shortly” *waves me off with flashlight*
Turns out my friend was pulled over for his broken taillight. Not broken in the sense that it didn’t work, but broken in the sense that it’s brighter than the other. Apparently it sends out “a blinding light.”
Yeah. Police officers in my town really have nothing better to do.
