Woman finds python in her used car
After reading this story, I couldn't help but think about what lewisipso would have done if it would have been him in the driver's seat. I'm willing to bet that the Camry would have been returned with a few extra holes.
Woman finds python in her used car - WAFB Channel 9, Baton Rouge, LA |
GONZALES, LA (WAFB) - A Louisiana woman recently got the scare of her life after buying a used car and finding it came fully-loaded with a python that apparently liked fried chicken.
Marquita Lawrence said the unimaginable happened along Airline Highway and East Cornerview Street in Gonzales.
"I left Raisin' Canes and I opened up my box," she said. "I didn't even get a chance to eat any of the food. I love Raisin' Canes. I looked down. I could see something moving in the corner of my eye. He smelled the food and he came slithering out from under the passenger's seat. I'm like, 'Oh my God, there's a snake!'"
Lawrence said she just bought a Toyota Camry from Hollingsworth Richards Used Cars in Gonzales. Officials there told her a couple tried to buy the same car about a month ago. They drove it around for a few weeks, but didn't close the deal. They did, however, lose their ball python, which is the same snake Lawrence had the pleasure of finding.
"I threw it in park and hauled tail and I did not look back. I'm running across the highway screaming, 'There's a snake in my car, there's a snake in my car!'" she explained.
Lawrence ditched her car in the middle of the road. She bolted across the busy intersection even though she was barefoot at the time. People were slamming on their brakes left and right, she recalled. She almost hit the car in front of her and the car behind her nearly knocked her over.
"I'm still shaking. My hands cannot stop shaking. That's how nervous I am," she added.
Managers at the used car dealership said they had no idea there was a python left behind. Lawrence has since returned the car. She's upset about the situation, having driven around town with her 3-year-old son in the back seat with the python nearby.
The dealership called animal control. The python was found and returned to its owner. Lawrence said she is now paranoid and checks under seats before sitting down, no matter where she is.

Lew probably would have shot the snake/car up, reloaded and shot some more, then he would go get more bullets, come back and make sure.*************************"It wouldn't take much for me to up and run...to another life somewhere in the sun."*************************"There's something inherently wrong with having to put on a bullet-proof vest and a gun to go to work."-(An old friend)

"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

I figured Lew would have morphed into a girly screaming Rambo. I'd be pissed because something was trying to snag my food, damnit.
