One For The Books...

Oh my goodness. This one is such a mind blower that I've got to remove my carpal tunnel brace to type it out. Yep, it's a whopper. I need to have full use of the hands and digits to get it spelled out. Spelled out for the astonishment of the blog world.
This is one for the books. I don't know which set of books. It would certainly be a book about the dumbest things that people do.
Here at the clerk's office there is a kid who was convicted of Possession of Marijuana. He is only 17 years old. Kelley is his name and he has no job. He lives with his mom and supposedly attends GED classes during the evening. Well, if he's going...he isn't learning much. Kelley was sentenced to perform a month of community service for the City. This sentencing was given due to the fact that he is unemployed and depends on his mother for transportation. The very high fine that Possession of Marijuana carries would've been more of a punishment to her than her rotten kid. However now I've begun to think that maybe the woman is just a big an idiot as her son.
Kelley came to perform his community service today. He is a handsome young man. His mother is lily white and leaves one to guess that his father is likely black. At first sight of his good looks you want to think that maybe he's just made a mistake and has some potential in this life. Possibly not so.
While Kelley is working he wears an orange shirt over his own that says "Trustee" on it. Maybe it's a bad idea that anything attached to Kelley has the word "trust" in it. After working, while waiting for his ride, he stopped by the office. His orange shirt had been removed. We could plainly see his t-shirt. It had pot leaves all over and the letters "U P S". I don't really know exactly what that stood for but I got the general idea. We expressed our dislike of this and strongly encouraged that he refrain from sporting such attire in the future at the PD. We asked if his mother had seen his shirt. He said yes. Possibly she is a moron. Possibly he is a liar.
Is there a more obvious way for Kelley to have given us all the finger and a big "F.U."?? That is besides walking in with a big sign or possibly working while stashing a joint behind his ear???

Side note: A lady came to pay a ticket today and told me that I looked as though I am "about to POP". Thanks lady. I'm glad you think I look like a fat cow.

There is a story told of a local police officer who, when he stopped a motorist for a traffic offense, asked the motorist to exit the vehicle, then had the following conversation with him:

"There is something I feel compelled to tell you, but I'd like you not to say anything until I am through. It's for your own best interests.

"Now, with that said, I wanted to tell you that I know for a fact that you have either just smoked marijuana, or that you were about to smoke marijuana at some point in the immediate future.

"I also know that there is marijuana in your possession. There is no point in denying it, because it would paint you as a dishonest person.

"Now, do you know how I've been able to tell this about you?"

Bewildered, the guy said, "How?"

The officer replied, "It's because you have a joint tucked behind your ear."

That was on "COPS" fool... I saw that one too.

I'm sure she didn't mean anything by it when she said you looked ready to pop, I mean you are 8 months along!

Now if she'd said, "Oh my, you're as big as a house!" Then you would've had every right to punch her in the face!
