At the end of the day yesterday a couple came in off of the street. I knew they didn’t belong and were up to no good but there was nothing I could do about it at the time. She tried to distract me by telling me she wanted to make an appointment. I sent her up to the front desk while her partner sat in optical. I went in my office to put away the statement I was in the middle of reconciling. I could hear him touching the frames. I immediately went back out….I was gone less than a minute.
I started straightening frames, etc. and I knew, he knew, that I knew, what he was doing. He didn’t care and I will never forget that shit eating grin he gave me. She came back from the front desk where I heard her declining to make an appointment at “this time” she walked right up to the frames closer to me and said “baby are these designer frames?” I looked at him and I looked at her and I said “yes, these are Vera Wang.” I stood there, not budging an inch. She looked at me and then looked at him and said “I will look when I have my appointment.” As they were walking out, I could see frames sticking out of his right short pocket.
I had to stop Force of Nature Girl from going after them. The young doctor snapped their picture while Force of Nature Girl banged on the window. I made her stop and call the police.The funny not funny thing is….these two were on foot. They moseyed down the street at their leisure. We could even see what street they eventually turned on…such balls!
My coworkers are amateurs and thought they could just leave. I stopped to talk to one of the doctors when I saw the police car pull up. Thankfully the brand new girl saw the police car and drove to the back and told Force of Nature Girl as well as Crude Girl so they came back in. I let the police officer in the door and told her I would tell her what I knew but I wasn’t filling out a police report. I have reached the life time quota on that so absolutely not! Since the other two came back in, it wasn’t an issue.
Today I had to identify them in a photo line up. Remember that shit eating grin? It made it easy peasy to identify him. His grin was cockroach-esque….that same level of evil. She wasn’t as easy but thankfully she had on a distinct set up with her mask. The pictures the young doctor took helped some too.
The funny not funny thing…they had just left the small jail at the police station up the street for shop lifting at a major retail store. We just happened to be on their walk home…jeez Louise! Such bullshit and it was their entitled attitude that made it all the worse.
THEN….my kids came home from their father’s and I found out that the grandmother made the Boy dispose of a robin’s nest…with eggs in it. That is against the law!!!! I would take a bird over a human any day and she just murdered baby birds. I am so upset about this! It’s bad enough that I have to listen to the wounded Girl daily as she no longer considers that woman her grandmother and that woman always has something to say…every…single…day. I have no respect for anyone who doesn’t respect nature….not that she ever deserved my respect but still…
The vermin are back next door, they even have a car that looks like it was in an accident hiding in their back yard. I won’t have them disturbing our lives or the lives of the chickens once they’re outside. The Girl has heard coyotes the last couple of nights. Even the woman who owns the sustainable shop in town who lives close to me asked if I heard them the last couple of nights. Now I need to worry about a coyote proof coop for my girls. The Girl is worried about the beagle but I don’t believe they would go after her and if they did we are always right there waiting for her to finish her business at night. The coyote is a trickster so I guess I need to figure out a way to trick the trickster.
I feel like predators are everywhere right now, literally and figuratively…..Zia
