Since we were out on the road we stopped at a 7-Eleven so that I could use their restroom, Amy stayed in the car, as I felt bad just using them as a restroom...I grabbed a snickers bar for us to share. As I was walking up to the front of the store a scruffy guy comes in and yells at the people behind the counter "I'm sick of this sh**!" Then he proceeds to pull and knock down a rack full of chips, peanut, beef jerky, and the likes right in from of the counter. Then yells "Call the cops, I'll go to jail, I don't care anymore." All the employees were shocked and didn't know what to do. They all apparently knew this guy and didn't know if they should go after him, clean up the mess, tender to their customers (me and 2 other dudes). One of the employees was about to run outside to do something to this guy but as he got to the door, he turned around and said "Screw that I'm already on probation." I thought "awesome."
I stood there not knowing whether to throw the candy bar back on the shelf and just move along or what. Well I hung around and helped one of the guys bring that whole rack upright but all the bags of food were scattered all over the floor. They checked me out and I went outside to tell Amy what happened...she was totally clueless as to what just happened in the store. The scruffy guy was just standing outside by the corner of the building waiting for the cops to get there. As soon as he saw the cops we put his arms up in the air and started waving them down. This guy apparently had a jail wish or something and he had to explain it all to the cops as they got there. We finally just went on our way and let them all be...but it was a crazy few minutes.
I thought I would only see that kind of stuff on TV on the Spike channel but it all happened within a few minutes in front of me in a 7-Eleven in South Lake Tahoe.
We live in a crazy, messed up world. May we all be kept safe from the crazies.

We came to sit down at our gate after eating and there is this lady
sitting right across from us talking very loudly about personal family
issues. Why do some people do this?
I guess I am more of a private person because I would not talk about
how I have been fighting and bickering with a family member in the
airport where there are dozens if bodies within ear shot. Some people
have no shame.
We are on our way to South Lake Tahoe to go skiing and hit up all the
casinos! Ok not really the casinos. But we have talked about going to
one just to say we have played on some slot machines. Our friends, the
Hollands, told us we should just to check it out and we could hit it
big on the nickel slots. We'll see if we do it I'd not.
I have told myself that wanted to be more of a risk take this year and
trying not to get too chickened out when I start going fast. We'll
also see how that goes.
I also have been geocaching and I got together with a g fellow from
our fellowship to get some trackables to place in CA and NV. I have 6
to place in some geocahes, I am really excited. I think we will do
most I our geocaching tomorrow and hit the slopes on Monday.
Oh man! We are starting to board I'll try to micro/mobile blog as much
as I can on our trip.
