Kicked Out!

Bobby told me about his friends wife today. I was kind of having a fit about how much I paid the plumber and he said "at least you didn't have as bad a day as my friends wife!"

Apparently they frequent the Brentwood Skate Center and were there for a visit. She was helping her youngest daughter around the rink with shoes on. The daughter had skates. A worker came over and told her she couldn't be out there with shoes on. She responded that they come there all the time and always do that. The worker got the manager who told her the same thing and that he had called the police. WHAT? for wearing shoes on the skating rink floor?

She asked why he did that and explained again that they always did that and they come there often.

The police showed up and escorted her and her young kids out of the building. SERIOUSLY? What could she have done to warrant that. The police couldn't really come up with an answer except to say they have a good relationship with the skating rink.

Hm...just so you know if you wear shoes on the rink the police will escort you out at the Brentwood Skating Rink!

  2. You're fortunate that you live in an area where the police will actually respond to a call like that. When I was living in Studio City and a crazy man was banging on my doors and windows trying to get into my house, the LAPD emergency line was answered like this: "I sure hope no one is getting murdered." When the house across the street from us was burglerized it took detectives 2 days to show up...

  3. Yikes! That is crazy! I suppose it is good they will respond for something like that but the manager shouldn't have even called the police!
    What a way to have the emergency line answered!

  4. I'd say start an area wide boycott and call the news. Well, maybe that's extreme, but like calling the cops isn't? Sheesh!

  5. There is a news station that does a "That's Messed Up" segment. Bobby actually suggested to said friend that he should call. :)

  6. I am not sure if you live in a small town but it reminds me of when I was visiting family in a very small town in Wisconsin, and we were at the public pool, and some of the moms were upset but were not yelling or acting foolish in any manner(can't remember why they were upset) the pool ended up calling the police, 3-4 officers arrived and they shut the pool down for the rest of the summer. And it was on the radio about a big fight at the pool, Oh small towns, I love it!!!
