Geez, Friday night I had to go back to be a witness in an OVI. Shit, I felt so bad for the kid. He was really young, and shaking so bad the whole time the officer read him the statement on drugs and alchohol testing, he was trying to hold it together. It was my first "witnessing" where I had to sign that he was read the rules, but the whole time I just thought, that poor kid. I guess I wouldn't think that if he'd hit and murdered someone with his car, but still. I usually do sympathize with the wrong people. Thats my problem.
I dunno if working 11-7 is the graveyard shift, but it sounds good to me. I'm pretty much dead when it's over, after working 8-5 already. I tend to miss all the good stuff at work, but this happened on Tuesday. I'm kinda glad I missed it, cus from what I hear it was a madhouse at the po-po station. Apparently the local Roger's Jewelers, which is one of the companies my full time job owns, was robbed! Four guys came from Detroit in a rental car, to steal a $30,000 ring, and I guess tried to get a $20,000 ring as well, but the sales clerk fought them for it. They stole a car from the mall parking lot, to get them to their getaway car, which was what gave them away. They fled the car leaving it open, and got into another car, witnesses called the police.
I guess it was a big ordeal. They came to the station to do the news, there's a video, I don't know the highway patrol, just the officers in it. and it was in the paper.
Anyhow, the funniest part about it all, was that they couldn't find the ring, apparently, dude swallowed it. He was feeling sick, so they suspected that's what he did, and they called in 'sanitation workers' to keep an eye on him, and retrieve it. It still had the price tag on it. How do you get THAT job? Unfortunatly I couldn't find the article to link, but I'll rewrite the best part.
"To recover the missing ring, the Stark County Sanitary Engineer had to be called in. At about 4:15 p.m., sanitary workers sucked the ring out of Turk's toilet. There was little doubt that the ring was part of the mall heist, according to the Sherrif's department, because it still had the original price tage on it"
When I think of an engineer, I think of someone building something, or flying to space, not digging thru shit for a ring. Not much happens around here, so a good shitting a diamond ring story, is big news! I wonder if they'll re-sell that ring? A girl at work told me that the next day when the lady whose car was stolen from the mall came to pick it up, she had a can of lysol. She told her "I'm not getting in that car until it's clean, criminals were in it" her husband, she said, was clearly embaressed by this statement.
