I live in a pretty cushy white suburban town in Western Canada. So I get a delivery and it says it’s to the RCMP out in the country, so I was thinking probably a check stop. I pull up to the cop car and he’s like “yeah I’ll let them know you’re coming down”
I drive down the range road a ways and the entire police force for my town had to be there. I get out and the cop asks me how my nights going, we make small talk as he’s typing in on the machine.
So I ask him what all of them are doing out here at almost 12 on a Saturday night... “Yeah we got two swat teams down there, about 30 guys, two choppers up there and the dogs, some crazy guy out in the woods with a gun.”
$5 tip. I mean it wasn’t the furthest, but maybe I’d have liked a bit more hazard pay for having to wait for these guys, and not telling me I’m delivering to an active shooter scene... I think other than the holy grail of banging a girl who comes to the door naked, I’ve now seen it all.
