A Reversal Of Fortune

, , , , | Legal | May 14, 2019

(I am working on my pizza delivery route. The guy ahead of me stops at the red light, and then makes the right turn and stops at the end of a line of cars. I check to make sure the coast is clear, make the turn, and come to a complete stop well before the guy’s bumper. Suddenly, the guy in front of me looks back, looks me dead in the eyes, and shifts into reverse. He guns the motor, surges backward, and rams my front bumper. Then, of course, he gets out screaming and yelling about his neck and about how he’s going to sue me for every penny I’m worth for ramming him.)

Me: *totally calm* “That’s not what happened, and you know it.”

Scammer: “Oh, yeah? And who’s going to believe that I put my car in reverse to hit you?

(I just smile calmly. The police arrive and the statements are given. The whole time the scammer is ranting and raving about how he’s sustained an injury and damage to his car. I just remain calm throughout the entire thing, even going back to the car to retrieve a small item to hand to the cops.)

Scammer: “HEY! What the h*** do you think you’re doing?! Are you seriously trying to bribe the f****** cops?!

Me: “Not at all. I was simply handing them the memory card to my dash cam.”

(There was a beat of silence, and then the scammer went dead white. The long and the short of it? He got in BIG trouble.)
