On first reading it sounded like another 9/11 scenario: "A second car has hiat the Goodwill building!"

What was he driving? I want one, if it can drive away from hitting a building well enough to hit a second building.

/Or even the same building a second time.

Well, it's not a drive through if you stop mid way.

Bootleg: What was he driving?


Wow, people are transitioning quickly these days!

Why were the police huffing paint the entire time? Didn't they stop long enough to write a report?

Right after this one dusts herself off, she'll be back at work; and the media says good, persistent employees are hard to find.

I've had it with this mother huffing paint in this mother huffing store.

"driver involved had been an employee of Goodwill"

Is?  Was?  Another thing to realize is a LOT of people do community service at Goodwills here in Georgia.  The community service "employees' stick out like a sore thumb.  My gal and I will spend a lazy Saturday hitting up several Goodwills - great deals on some things if you happen to be looking for them and find them*, cheap amusement at some of the things (and people) you see, and we've happened upon some great hole in the wall restaurants for lunch or dinner.

* cast iron, I've bought bicycles for neighbor's young kids (all of $4.75 for a tiny kid's bicycle), big plant pots are also dirt cheap, you just never know what you'll find

/ I wish I knew about Goodwill when i first set out on my own.  Good pots, plates, flatware and utensils are idiotically cheap.

True story on the kitchen ware - but it's kind of intermittent.  I've gone looking and just hit them at the wrong time and there's not much there you want, I've seen setups that I liked better than my own stuff.  It's a bit luck of the draw

Subby where does it say she was huffing paint?
 
2022-12-02 6:13:39 PM  
She came in like a huffing ball?

At the risk of sounding classist, I learned one simple trick when young broke college lad. Even if you have to drive a couple towns away, if you find a Goodwill near a rich people area, you can get really great kitchenware / whole plate settings / etc for cheaper than dogcrap Walmart new stuff.

The Greenway Plaza Goodwill in Houston had great cookware, including Pyrex in both American and Mexican sizes. Really helped when my wife and I were starting out.

you aren't wrong.  Goodwill reflects the people in the donation area.  Go to a nice place and find nice things.

someone had struck the building and unfortunately that's not a rare occurrence

Nobody buys pillows at Goodwill but that's why they always stock a bunch right up front.

That is tragic, I hope she can turn her life around.  That could have easily been a much sadder story.

My wife was taking weekly physical therapy sessions at a place that was in a nice strip mall in a nice suburban area of Chicago. I would wander around going to the nearby library, different stores, etc. There was a Goodwill in the strip mall and I decided to see what they had. WOW! I was looking at men's clothes and they had high end stuff (a few with the original price tags still on. so never worn) for 3 or 4 dollars. I'm retired, but had I known about this place when I was working, I would have hit this place up for shirts and slacks, as I drove by the place daily, to and from the job.

In this world with the police we have, I'd prefer them to be huffing paint

Roberts said the young woman, whose name he did not immediately release, was arrested and taken to jail.

"After it kind of wore off and her senses were back about her, she gave a full explanation of what was going on and the life choices that were happening that resulted in using this so, even though she went to jail, I know some resources have been afforded to her and I know we've spoken with some family and we really hope the young lady is able to get the help that she needs," Roberts said.



Any bets on whether the driver was white?

I'd suggest alternating randomly between the "mosquito" sound, traditional Indian and/or Chinese
(Especially Canotnese) music and playing them at random volumes..That would be more annoying.

Until the homeless break into a large cast dance number...Then you'll be glad the security cam
is on to see it...
