Dear Metrocops

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

On Friday night, while i was on my way home from watching District 9.....awesome movie btw, you guys should totally go watch it if you haven't seen it yet.....the unthinkable happened. There I was, driving along happily in my little baby, listening to Nickle Creek when suddenly this black car, came speeding from behind, overtook me, cut me off and forced me to a standstill. Then, within seconds 2 metro police vehicles came to a screeching halt behind my now stationary car.

I was feeling pretty confused until the first shots rang out. Those idiots were firing at you guys and i was right in the middle of it all. After what felt like an eternity and a million shots, more metro cops came chasing from the other direction and the dudes were apprehended. I on the other hand could not move.

A very friendly policeman, whose name I just can't remember, came up to me and asked me if I was OK. I wasn't, but I managed to say that I was and that i would like to go home now. He was sweet enough to escort me home and make sure i got there safely. I was sort of OK until i actually got home...I freaked out, completely. And bought shares in Hysterics R us...and throughout all of this the kind police officer just stood there patting me on the back and telling me it's OK, it's over now and I'm fine.

So I'd like to thank you guys first of all for dealing with the situation quickly and efficiently. And even though i don't remember the guys name,I'd like to say thank you to the police man who treated me with such kindness and patience in my moment of absolute melt down. Thank you!



P.S. erm.....just so you know, I'd like to point out to you guys that you might want to reconsider having roadblocks on Witkoppen during peak time traffic.....It really really screws us normal people around and makes us a bit negative...k?

Gosh how frightening :( I am not sure I would have waited till I got home for Hysterical R Me!!

Ruby said...

BB - Thanx was...but strangely enough i've sorta breezed through it.....i thought i'd be having nightmares and stuffs

Laura - yes, i'm strange like that. I tend to react to crisis in an uber calm rational way...i only freak out once the worst is over:)
