Bah, that's nothing.
...


Meh, THAT'S nothing.

My friend hired some local crackheads to kidnap his fiancee and tie her up in an old warehouse. And then right when she's convinced they are about to violate her he busts in, "saves" her, and proposes. Of course she says yes!

/didn't "actually happen"

'He knew having "Tina" pulled over by police would cause her some stress.'
What's up with putting Tina in " "s?? Is it really that far of a stretch for most people to come to the conclusion that Tina is Kristina's nickname?? WTF?? Oh, and these 2 jackoffs sound really farking pathetic. Ugh.

I bet you didn't know that skillet picture is actually an album cover for a band called Skillet:

That article says they were both 'Commuter Students'

Is that a typo - or can you really do a degree in travelling to work?

Actually, yes, I did.

I was trying to find a skillet picture from Golden Corral's advertising campaign, but it didn't come up on the first 3-4 pages of a GIS.

The Skillet album cover worked well (and was even captioned!) 8-)

It means you live way off-campus and travel to another town to attend college/university.

The police then beat them both and sprikled some crack on them.

Actually Rockford is about forty minutes away or so, so there are lots of kids that do that. Some, however, still live in town and just say they commute so they can get the good parking passes...

The reporter digging for someone to give this a social frown was the most annoying part. Sheesh, the cops have a hard enough job that doing stuff like this once in a while isn't going to kill anyone.

EmmaLou:I would have said no. That would have pissed me off so much that I probably would have broken up with him on the spot.

_Oh_ yeah. He'd be lucky if I didn't _kill_ him. Dead. I mean, the guy knew she was phobic and she was on the way to an important (job?) interview. Let's just totally screw up any chance she has at doing well at the interview, while at the same time making something every woman would like to be at least a pleasant memory into a traumatic nightmare, why don't we? In a few years, he'll be doing other 'funny' things, like releasing huge rats in the bedroom, or pretending the baby died of cribdeath, perhaps. And she said _yes_? Talk about your lack of backbone!

Then, my husband and I have always had a hard rule: No public humiliation, and we each leave the other's phobias alone. Neither is funny.

The Golden Skillet? Dude couldn't step up to the local IHOP? Was Denny's full that day?
 
2005-02-11 09:57:08 AM  
It seems to me that this is misuse of government resources. Sure, just one small incident. What if she ran off the road by accident? I for one, don't want my tax dollars going to this horse hockey, especailly when not everyone is even allowed to leaglly marry....

Well, as a firefighter, it's "all-you-can-eat" and we only pay the "kids" price.

Can't beat it.

BTW, all the freaks hang out at IHOP and Denny's is all the way across town and won't let the brother's eat there anyway.

I'd hate to stereotype anyone.

On Emeril Live on Food TV, he had two couples sitting at the counter. These are people who he first hands samples to on camera. He asked the one couple how long they've been together and they said 4 years, then he handed the guy a box made of chocolate. He knelt down and asked his lady to marry him. She, of course, said Yes. The studio audiance cheered. Then after they sat down, he went to the other couple and asked them the same question. 14 months the guy answers. "What's wrong with you two?" he responded and brought out another box made of Chocolate. This guy turned to his girl and asked her.

Two engagements right there.

It was very cool.

Yeah...that would have been really great...cops lights go on...he asks for her license...then asks her to step out of the car...then she blows the cop away as she gets out...bwahahahahahaha...greatest proposal ever! bwahahahaha.

What about the crime being committed while this "protector of the populace" was busy with "community-relations type of activity..."

Oh that's just precious...

I'm preparing to become a clinical psychologist. Should I have my girlfriend commited when I propose? I could walk into her padded cell with her in a straight jacket and pop the question. It'd be very romantic.

Reminds me of this time when we were on our way back from a car race. We had just won, and everyone was celebrating in the back of the car hauler. You know, boozing it up and whatnot. As luck would have it, we get pulled over by some state troopers. They pulled us out of the hauler and start searching us for weapons. Anyway, our driver gets searched by this cop who starts feeling him up. Down the front of the pants and all. She turns him around and rips off her trooper outfit. She's hot! Turns out she was really a stripper. Our crew chief actually had set it up as a practical joke on our driver to celebrate his first win. Boy, that was a hoot.

And if she said "no" you'd have a woman in a straight jacket...so you got that going for you...

//always thought "straight jacket" was one word...why? weird...

It took me until the end of your story to realize that your i, t, and h keys are broken. I somehow thought the President was involved for a minute.

This is close to how I asked my wife to marry me. Mine was better but, still very close.

You're fibbing right? Lifted that out of Days of Thunder?
 
2005-02-11 10:59:24 AM  
Wow. A lot of people need to lighten up. Was this your proposal? Are you Ryan or Tina?

No?

Then shush and let them enjoy each other. They enjoyed it; no one says you have to propose/be proposed to in the same way.

This is a cute story, I'm glad it worked out for them.

my point was that these cops were on the taxpayers dollar.

2005-02-11 11:03:04 AM  
Yeah! Lighten up! Who cares that they complain they don't have enough weapons or money, let's just ignore the fact they just wasted how much in vehicle wear & tear, gas, time..?

Coulda bought a few bullets at least.
