Standard answer, "It seemed like a good idea at the time".

Either that, or they weren't thinking at all.

A good whack on the side of his head certainly got his attention. Maybe he'll watch his mouth from now on.

Rev. Paul said...

I love these crime blotter posts of yours. Living in a small village, even if a part of a big city we don't see much but I did note the burglary where someone "stole an unknown number of jars of homemade gravy".

Rev. Paul said...

Brigid, the gravy thief must have been motivated by more than greed (hunger? mashed potatoes?) ... but that's a great story. :)
