    Default A little too much excitement at work today

    Some people robbed the Credit Union which I belong to, drove down the main drag which the build which I work in. They are behind my work now on the local news surrounded by the swap team, police helicopters flying in circles over my building, some just hovering. Got call for another building asking if all was ok here, peaked my interest seen stated, then noticed a microwave antenna for news crew pointing over another building in the same parking lot as me. I don't even think it's safe to leave the building.

    Out and safe, I could hear the bull horn in the back ground as I got in my 4runner. Kid around with detective which had his car park in the drive way for work, asked why they didn't bring out the the Tank the city owns and run over the house with it? This house they are in was across the street from the building across the parking lot of the building I work in. Well in the 10 yrs I've worked there today had to be the most interesting.

    I was a banker in a bank robbery which was take over style. I had a sawed off shot gun pointed at my face and then the back of my head as I lay on the ground. Only thing I really remember was if I get shot how much is it going to hurt. We all made it out fine, but I'm no longer in banking. Crazy sh*t!!
