    Just getting over a minor heart attack here at work... Phone rings, guy introduces himself as a State Trooper and says he needs to speak to an owner or a manager. I'm like, "uuuuuhhhhhhh ok, let me give you the GM's cell number..." :eek:

    I do a little googling of the number but can't find too much at first. The groomer and I are wigging out wondering if they're looking for an employee or something. We're both like, "Well I pay my tolls... I wasn't speeding!!! What does a State Trooper want with us?!?!" LOL

    Um yeah... did a little detailed searching and found out it's the Fraternal Order of Police looking to fundraise. Apparently they do this every year. :eek:

    Ya know, I realize it's an attention-getter but can you PLEASE not call here and act like you're calling about something legal, after you introduce yourself as a State Trooper. Now I feel like an idiot for sending him to my GM on his day off over fundraising. Grrrr...

    Still... :D Kinda funny. Anyway, just venting because I thought it was both stupid and funny. LOL

    We used to get calls from them every year too.

    Or how about this, imagine opening your door (as a teen) and finding a guy from the FBI on the other side? Lol we had a neighbor at the old neighborhood who was in the FBI, he's retired now, and every year they send a guy out "check up" on him, and they interview the neighbors and such. I guess they gotta make sure he didn't become a terrorist or anything. :p

    We had something similar to this happen to us..But the FBI showed up at our front door asking if they could watch our neighbors house from our yard... :yikes:

    Real mess.. still not sure about the neighbors (I've never even seen them come/go.. just a little white dog shows up every now and then).



    Yeah... I would be pretty terrified if State Patrol called me.. had a run in with them once...wasn't pretty, but I've paid my dues LOL
