Some Days Start Off With A Bang

| USA | Right | September 3, 2012

(A man walks into our police department and approaches the dispatch counter.)

Me: “Hello, how can I help you?”

Man: “I was just at a yard sale and brought a nice wood trunk, but when I got it home I looked inside and it was full of dynamite. It looks old and unstable.”

Me: “And where is it now?”

Man: “It’s in the back of my truck.”

Me: “Okay, and where is your truck?”

Man: “Outside in your parking lot!”

(And that is how our police department ended up getting evacuated for three hours. He parked, of all places, next to the supervisor’s brand new personal truck. Thankfully, it was found to be dummy training dynamite!)

    Oh man … you don’t know whether to appreciate the guy’s attempt to be a responsible citizen by turning in what he thought were explosives … or shaking your head in dumbfounded amazement at the way he chose to do so.

    And it took them 3 HOURS to figure out it wasn’t real???
