“When I lived in Texas, I delivered newspapers every night for San Antonio Express News for $500 extra a week. One night my friend, who delivered papers as well, was having car problems. So I went and picked her up, and that way we could deliver both routes in my car. We finished with both around 3:30 am and decided that we were going to go to get some food at a local Denny’s.
We sit down and finish our meal, joking about all the random things we see. Her husband was getting worried, so we left to take her home. I merge onto I-35 and start heading towards Universal City. We were talking about literally everything until she just went silent. Then, I saw it. Someone on the other side of I-35 was driving south in the north lane. We tried calling the cops, but 911 just kept ringing and ringing.
I called one of my friends who was married to someone that was a cop at the local police department, and she got hold of him. The situation was finally taken care of but it felt like it took forever. Come to find out it was a trashed 19-year-old who was trying to get to the Honda dealership to try to steal a car.”
