Funny off duty encounters
Another thread got me thinking about this, namely Roadwarrior's post in the Show your Pride thread.
What are some of our verified's funny off duty encounters that they wouldn't mind sharing with site visitors? Here is one of mine.
I'm off duty dress in sandals board shorts, and an old frat t-shirt with our letters arranged like a Phish concert t-shirt. Still armed and carrying my badge under the shirt. I'm on my way to a little get together, so I'm at a grocery store to pick up some snack food for my part. I get out of the SS, and I'm walking the lot toward the store when this teenager approaches me from a group. He's like hey man can you help me out. I don't know, what do you need? Can you buy me and my frineds some beer? I start looking around, and ask him if this is some sort of sting or something? [I'm selling it too:biggrin1:] Kid is like no way man we're cool. I don't know buddy there are cops all around this place all the time, and they will bust me not you. Kid offers to make it worth my while. [I'm dying inside with laughter] Listen kid, there are cops all around here. Kid offers me $20. "I don't need any money bro, JUST YOUR ID [as the badge comes out]. Pure intestinal pain is displayed across his face. He hands me his ID. I look at it, well Justin looks like things are kinda crazy around this place huh? No response. I hear there are some trouble makers about. Especially the kind that like to mess with people's stuff when they are not around [like my damn car so here comes the Godfather speech]. I'm not going to hold anything against you, but I need you to make sure nothing happens to my car here. You're going look after it like it was your own. If a bolt of lightning happens to come out of the sky I want to know which cloud it came from. If you do a good job and my car is in prestine order when I get back remind me to give your ID back to you. You got that? I go in, get my stuff. I even pick up some beer just for the hell of it. Load up the things in my car. I toss Justin's ID back to him, give him a wink, and tell him I'll see him and his friends in church on Sunday. The look on the whole group was priceless.
