My grandfather was in the hospital and was very close to dying. I was there for 2 days with him and needed to run home to grab some things and shower, so I drove home as fast as I could so I could get back.
On the return trip I was speeding again and got pulled over by a state trooper who was behind me the entire time, apparently (I didn’t even see him). When he asked me why I was going so fast I told him what was going on and that I was sorry.
He looked at my last name and said, “Is your grandfather George?”
Turns out he knew him — my grandfather was a Fire Chief for 27 years in the town next to the barracks — and told me to get to the hospital. He could have easily given me a ticket, which I deserved…but he let me go. My grandfather ended up passing later that day. – Beer_
I did the illegal thing and the lunch lady used to help.
I was in Seminole Middle way back when in Florida and we were really poor. Like, really poor. I used to steal lunch wraps and salad from the health bar during lunch in the cafeteria. The lunch lady knew. There was lunch A–C, all hosted at different times of the day.
She wouldn’t charge me until the third lunch, and even then it was next to nothing. I would have a backpack full of wraps and salads that I’d take home and share with my brother.
14 years to this date I have spent every Sunday talking to her at least two hours. She is old now and nobody really visits her. I tend to go see her from time to time, when the opportunity arises. I bring her Thanksgiving dinners and Christmas dinners. Sometimes I cook breakfast for her and I maintain her garden. I take her for walks (she’s in a wheelchair). I love her. When she passes away, I’ll have lost a mother and a friend. – [deleted Reddit user]
I don’t know if this is illegal but I went to the bank thinking that they were still open since the doors were all unlocked.
All the lights were off and no one was there. So I called the cops.
The cop told me to walk inside to see if someone was there. Nope. But someone left a pair of bank keys on a desk. So, with police consent, I trespassed.
An hour later, after I had left and gone to buy lunch, I saw four cop cars stationed outside the bank. I’m hoping that no one got fired for the wrong reason. – freevantage
