Why I was Late for Shul this Morning

I found this sitting in front of my garage. The engine was still running!

Let me guess...you left a hubcap under your pillow last night and got visited by the car fairy?

That can't be good.

Are you serious about the engine running?

Let's be sure to mention this when people say "the neighborhood is very safe; the crime is just passing through". It loks like they were passing but then decided to bed down for the night.

You know, I was at a talk with the Mayor last month where we asked for more Police presence, and he told us that the neighborhood was relatively safe and the Police were off "catching bad guys" in more dangerous areas and dealing with "big crime." So apparently there aren't enough resources for "little crime" like this stuff.

The thing is, the "big crime" basically takes place between people who know each other--criminals and gang members.

But the little crime is the stuff that makes the law-abiding members of the community move to the suburbs.

Giuliani didn't clean up NY by focussing on "big crime". He did it by focussing on "little crime," the squeegie men and the pan-handlers and the nuisances that made the city miserable for regular people and created an overall sense of lawlessness.

How bizarre!

Actually, my first thoughts were that this was a personal message aimed at me. I was on Driving Patrol on Wednesday and made eye contact with several shady looking characters.

So I thought this was the equivalent of the "waking up with a severed horse head in your bed."

But the cop said that more likely, the perps were after some fancy rims on the guy's wheels.

well, at least it's not your car. shame for the person whose car it actually is. at least most of it is one piece. bizarre though.

I. for one, miss the days when RaggedyDad and I could freely harass people all over Midtown with our squeegees and panhandling.

OK. Time to move.

Really.

Excuses, excuses!
In my day when we found a stripped down Buick Century still running in front of our house we backed out over it and STILL got to Shul on time!

Just kidding...
That's acutally DAMN scary.
You didn't hear anyone screwing around in your driveway?

Ralphie said...

I think the real story here is that Bean has his official log-in back. Let's focus on the important things here, people.

Steg (dos iz nit der šteg) said...

maybe it was a returning present from Bean?
("surprise! i'm baaaaaaack!"

Doctor Bean said...

I got my log in and my groove back two posts ago, boyyyyz! Now, where'd my ho leev my white Oldsmobeel at?

Mr Bagel said...
