Do I Look Like a Dirtbag?!?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Alright, team, here's my Saturday evening for you. I swear, never a dull moment.

Last night I took my 13 year-old daughter out to dinner for her birthday. I was with a friend of mine from school and his wife. Just after we finished our salads, I recalled that Allie (my daughter) had meds in the car that she was supposed to be taking for strep throat. She had forgotten to bring them from her dad's and had therefore missed a day of doses.

So, out I went to the car to get her a pill. I wanted her to take one right away as it was on my mind, and I didn't want her to forget another dose. I had just closed the car door after getting a pill, and some guy approaches me.

He says, "You walked out of the restaurant behind me."

My reply, "And?..."

His statement, "Well, my wallet is gone, and you took it. You pickpocketed me."

Me: " Excuse me?"

Him: "You better give it back to me, or I'm calling the cops."

Me: "Go ahead and call. As a matter of fact, I'll dial the number for you."

He calls the cops. I wait there a few minutes, and then decide that I'm not missing dinner over this idiot.

He says, "If I am wrong about this, I'm sorry."

I say, "If you are wrong, you can prepare to buy my dinner."

So I go back into the restaurant. When we finish dinner and leave, sure enough the sheriff's deputy (3 cars, no less) are parked behind my car in the lot. I ask if they want to search my person and/or my car. They say no. I ask if they want to see my identification. They say no. I ask if I am free to go. So they finally say yes and move their cars so I can leave.

I spend the remainder of the night just shaking my head in disbelief. So, what did the rest of you do to entertain yourselves on a Saturday night?

Sincerely,
The Felon

1. Oh, believe me, I was.

2. What do you think?

I can't believe the audacity of some people. It's very rude to accuse someone who you don't know in that manner. I hope he feltthis small after that.

Did he ever find his wallet?

That guy sounds like such an idiot. If you accuse someone of stealing you should be sure of it. At least you didn't lose your cool deb.

Oh, I lost my cool, alright. Allie was telling me all through the meal that my face was beet red. I kept looking over my shoulder at the door, because I was waiting for the cops to come in. I didn't exactly feel like being made a public spectacle as they escorted me out of the establishment. He never found it, to my knowledge.

Sorry but the idea of you being a Fagin just tickles me! I would of been so ticked off, but I know 3 people who would of made your bail! *G* Thanks for the giggle, how ludicrous was this guy? Hey, maybe he was shy and this was his way of hitting on you? LOL

I don't think I could have stayed as cool as you did, Deb. How could you possibly enjoy your dinner with something like that happening? It's a shame you can't charge him with harassment! Well, come to think of it, you probably could. He would have to prove he had a really good reason to suspect you that strongly.

Hey Fagin!, my new user name! As a matter of fact, I was thinking about the 10 questions thread that somebody started (was it valanhb?) with the last question being about the best pick- up line. Thought about coming home and posting that little ditty.

When we were leaving the wife was there, and told me I should have some patience while waiting for the deputies to move their cars. After all, her husband was only trying to get his property back. I said, "I know! I'm the one he's accusing of taking it!"

But I am still giggling just because I know you so well and this is something out of the Twilight Zone! LOL

My gosh! I don't think I could have finished eating, red face or not!

I bet his wallet's in her purse.

And I think HE's the one that looks like a dirtbag!

What?!!?? Talk about jumping to conclusions! Oh, I lost my wallet. You are near me. Therefore, you took it? That guy must've failed his Syllogistic Logic class because that just does not work! A and B are true but do not lead to C. What a total loser. I feel sorry for his wife. She sounds annoying to, but she's stuck married to a paranoid idiot with no manners, so I suppose she has a little bit of an excuse. Kudos to you for acting with much much more patience and decorum than I would have. I have difficulty when people cannot grasp that I am right and they are wrong even though I have explained my rightness and their wrongness through indisputable facts and logic. :tounge2:

Unbelievable! I'm telling you, it's people like this that natural selection would've taken care of long ago!!!!

How crude!

I bet Allie will remember this birthday! And hopefully, she'll remember that Mom acted mature while the idiot made a fool of himself.

How did he buy you dinner if you took his wallet?? LOL This story has made me giggle all day.......
post #18 of 22
OMG! I can't believe that some idiot would be that stupid! I don't think that I would have kept my cool like you did. I probably would have went off on him and told him to get the heck away from me and to get lost.

That is so awful! I would have been so ticked!!! What a butthole!!
