After a very very long day at work, because of having to deal with the aftermath of some moron breaking into Condesa the night before… With an axe… through the drywall in the empty store front next door…
I started on my journey home and ran out of gas. I called the cops who gave me a ride in the back of their police cruiser. Which was really interesting, I asked a lot of questions. The seats are made of plastic. And there are bars on the window. I’m a good kid, I’ve never been arrested before so it was really interesting to see the back of a police car. THEY WERE LISTENING TO MUSE! I usually dislike cops a lot, but these guys, Decatur Police, are pretty flippin’ awesome. And super friendly.
But gas cans that cost $8 and being gipped out of a full gallon of gas (A gallon of gas cost 3.29, but the pump only gave me .997 gallons of gas) is a bunch bull.
Herds of bull.
Think Texas amount of bull.
Anyway, I’m finally home safe and sound in my warm house.
Oh, by the way, I also got to be the spokesperson for Condesa for Atlanta Action News 2 about the break in. That was SO much fun, the news lady was nice and was great to talk to.
They were going to show it tonight, but since snow is SUCH a big deal here in Atlanta, they decided to spend all the time allotted for news on that and save my segment until tomorrow night.
So tune in then! I’ll post a link to it here for all you cool cats that don’t live in Atlanta!
P.S. I really love the coffee/small business community in Atlanta.
