(KHOU Houston)   Before you call the cops to report a hostage situation inside a Cricket store, first make sure it's not actually the night manager saying goodbye to her husband   (khou.com) divider line 28

Just because they are married doesn't give the husband a right to abuse his wife. Get out of the stone age subby.

Thanks for your help, Concerned Citizen. Now go file a PTC complaint against Family Guy

What, was he hugging her throat with his fists or something?

Meh, better than ignoring the situation if you thought something was actually going wrong. Although waiting a few seconds instead of jumping the gun would seem wise.

The success of the Federal "If you see something, say something program", goose steps forward.


The people allowed to touch is the TSA or Blueshirts when they grope innocent Americans.

My thoughts exactly.  Unlike the other many, many situations where passers-by see a real crime in progress and continue to pass by.

The person who reported this needs to be thanked.

CSB: I worked at McDonalds as a HS student.  Staying after closing to do the final night's clean-up was a huge PITA, so we used to play little pranks on each other just to not make it suck so much.  One time, we stole our manager's tie (he had taken it off to prevent it from getting dirty while cleaning), soaked it in water, and then laid it flat on a bun tray in the walk-in freezer.  It froze into a 3-ft long tie-cicle, which we brought out and gave to him.  That got a good laugh, and then he held it up as though it were a rifle and made us all lean up against the front window and pretended to be robbing the place, marching us back to the break room single file (because it was time for a break).  Another laugh, and then the tie started melting and that was that..

Which would be the end of the CSB, except that someone passing by saw us being "robbed" and called the cops.  To make it worse, the liquor store across the street had been robbed three times in the past week, so EVERY cop within a ten mile distance (or so it seemed) raced to our store, sirens wailing and lights flashing.  Most of us didn't notice because we were still back in the break room, but the (tie-less) manager was pulling register trays in preparation for the nightly accounting.  Cops saw him with the money trays in his hands, assumed the worst, and rushed the place, guns drawn.  It took a good half hour to sort everything out.  The still-sodden tie was brought out for evidence.  Everybody had a good laugh.  And then the next day, a no-pranks-during-closing policy came out.  Which we ignored.  Oh, and the manager was called "Hamburgler" (eventually shortening to "Hamby") from that day forward.

End of CSB.

Americans were fat back then?? I thought it was because of the internet and videogames that we got like that.

I love the fact he was called Hamburgler after that one.  I'd love to say that I had similar stories from my time at Little Ceasar's, but that owner was so coked up every day that any little prank probably would have sent her into a murderous rage.

I'm pretty sure anyone inside a Cricket store is by definition being held hostage.

i didn't know there were such things as tree-species sports

perhaps it's a larch sport, rather than a poplar sport? i could identify that kind from far away.

Aren't hugs between students banned in many schools now?

\The re-education of the populace will continue unabated. Feelings will be eliminated. Showing human emotion will be considered an act of civil disobedience. Physical contact between people will be limited to pinky-swears....handshakes may be acceptable if done in the presence of objective third parties.
