Happy Throwback Thursday Trackers,
Let’s take a short trip back to just under 10 days ago to the waning hours of the 13th of February. As men everywhere were panicking because they just realized they forgot about Valentine’s Day, three young men who had not yet reached the legal age of adulthood were walking around the area of Lake Bradford Rd., presumably in search of a heartfelt gift for those at school with which they were smitten. As they passed a gas station, they noticed a woman get out of her car at the pumps and walk inside to talk to the clerk and pay for gas. They also noticed the car was unlocked and left running. These three young men should have said to themselves, “Selves, that isn’t a good idea to leave the car unlocked and running and someone with ill intention could try to steal it, so we should just hang out and make sure that doesn’t happen.” Unfortunately, that is not what happened. Instead, they said, “Selves, this car is unlocked and running and we could steal it!” Two of the young men on a crash course of bad choices jumped in the car as the third acted as a lookout. As the bandits prepared to speed off to more bad choices, they discovered the car was……wait for it…..manual transmission! Completely befuddled by this lack of technology from years gone by, they were able to get the car into neutral before the owner returned with a rather angry disposition. Neutral doesn’t go anywhere fast, but it doesn’t stay in place either. The bad guys jumped out of the car, which then rolled a short distance and crashed. Officers in the area converged like a swarm of tactical locusts and put their nose to the ground and the bad guys were quickly captured!
Keep your nose to the ground and your tails waggin’
