On Tuesday 9/16 I drove to work, managed to find a parking spot, and locked my keys in the car. Grrr! I managed to prevent the passenger window behind the driver’s seat from closing completely, but ALAS, my arm couldn’t fit through far enough so I could reach and pull up the door thingy. I found a longish branch, poked it through and hooked closer my old umbrella. I broke off one of the wire ribs, and tried to break into my car by lifting the door handle and pushing the wire in so it could push up the door thingy. PLease note that I did all of this in broad day light, with my bags lying in the road next to me. Igave up the struggle and ran to my school around the corner to find someone with thin arms.
As I got to the gate I found myself surrounded by 3 scooter cops. They climbed into my face, shouting and gesticulating wildly at the same time. I managed to hear “thief” and “car” in the chaos. The next moment all the admin staff from my school, incl. my employer, came running out, adding their voices to the cacophony. Wow! Way bad PR this!
One of the girls told the cops I didn’t have a car! She thought I had a scooter! Luckily, I had my car papers with, and gave them to the biggest, surliest of the 3 cops. Since I have a proper Chinese name, and not a made up one which foreigners get based on their surnames, the cops didn’t believe me. With a flick of her wrist my boss send a minnion running for all my paperwork. This cleared up the situation, and Big Guy said," Misunderstan, ok? Misunderstan." It was plain to see they were scared I was going to complain about their “false arrest”. But I just laughed, and said “No, sweat.”
My wife is just a little upset that they didn’t pin me down and slap some handcuffs on - kinky woman!
Anybody else with a cool story about their run-ins with the fuzz?
