Weird Restaurant Stories 11/20

2 Comments

It seems this column always ends up with a focus on crime.  I can only expect that to become more common as the holidays approach and crime rates rise.  This week’s stories are not only about crime, but the general stupidity of those who commit it.  These people pictured themselves as modern day D.B. Coopers only to find themselves caught.  A word to all criminals: If you are not smart enough to talk yourself out of robbing a restaurant, you are probably not smart enough to get away with it.  When you are caught, you can count on me to enjoy mocking you in the hours I am not working hard at an actual job.

Story Time: Injuries

From the statistics I get through WordPress, I can tell that about half my traffic comes from search engines.  Which is cool and I enjoy seeing what people search for to end up at my blog.  The other half is people who came here via a link someone posted or have the page bookmarked.  For the second group, I have been trying to think of some way to make this blog more interactive.  I try to ask at the end of most posts for feedback and don’t get many takers.  The thing is that I know many of you have far more interesting takes on any number of the topics discussed in this blog.  So today I am going to try a new feature called “Story Time.”

The idea of Story Time is that everyone has a story to tell about certain topics.  They are the stories that get pulled out after work at the bar or in side stations while waiting for a table.  I have a favorite story for most of these topics.  I am sure you do too.  So just pretend that you are sitting around a high top sipping a cool beverage and tell your tale in the comments section.

Today’s topic is workplace injuries.  A coworker who hurt himself inspired it.  He looked over at me while doing his checkout and said, “You know what you oughta write about on your blog thing is getting hurt at work.”  I wasn’t sure what angle to take on that issue.  For the record I am opposed to getting hurt at work.  Please don’t do it.  If you do get hurt though could you possibly do it in a really funny way?
