So my girl friend works at Starbucks. She calls me up last night on her break like she normally does, but this time there was a sense of panic and alertness in her voice. She told me that she went off to grab more cups from another store because they were running very low and that when she returned the shift supervisor who was in charge while she was gone was in a panic. She said, "Where have you been?!" My girl friend asked what was going on and the shift supervisor said, "There's a GUN in the bathroom."
So of course all the girls in the store flip out and the only guy who goes to the bathroom and takes the gun under a cloth asks them a few minutes later if nobody comes and claims the gun could he keep it.
Anyway, my girl friend calls the cops and no less than 4 minutes after she called this huge black guy comes in, like 6'4 built like a tank. He heads to the bathroom and then goes up to the counter and asks if anyone has seen his firearm. I forget the exact details, but apparently the guy is an undercover CHP Officer.. but my girl asks for his badge, his number, ID, everything. She and the other girl both lectured him on how dangerous it was and such and he was like "Yeah yeah I know, it was real stupid of me.. etc.." and they give him back his gun and he puts it in his empty holster and goes back to his unmarked Crown Vic that is parked across the street.
Great stuff, glad we have the responsible ones carrying these weapons eh?
