Of Denny's and \"Dine n' Ditch\"
Since little of you are contributing to my "Matrix Ending Speculations" thread (shameless plug), I am going to tell a true story that happened last week.
I am ashamed to say I am known at the local Denny's down the street from me. Once every week or two, I wolf down a Breakfast Dagwood and Coke at around midnight. Last week, I was asked if I wanted the usual as I was seated next to 2 gentlemen in their early twenties.
While waiting for my meal, I couldnt help but notice the two acting a little overly goofy. They werent drunk. I suspected marijuana highs based on behavior and eating style once the mass quantities of food arrived. They both stood up from the warzone that was left of their table, giggled as they stared at each other and walked towards the door. One stopped at the counter as if to pay while the other walked, hobbling some, out to their car parked out front in plain veiw of the counter.
After an exchange at the counter, one guy bolted for the door and almost didnt make it through as his friend turned the ignition. The waitress briskly walked to the window and had a full 10 seconds to write a description of the car, the license plate number, and gestured to the thiefs that the gig was up.
The waitress was talking to the 911 operator as I approached to pay my bill. She was having difficulty describing the (men?) in english so she handed me the phone asking for assistance. I gave a blow by blow description of both thieves as well as confirmed somethings about their car.
I pretty much figured this guys were so stupid that they were begging to be caught. I also would have felt more forgiving had they been younger but I'd rather side with the waitress who probably has another job just to make ends meet and doesnt 100% grasp the english language.
So the ending? The operator said the cops would come and they didnt. I find it hard to believe with detail physical descriptions and a license plate they couldnt have been caught but they werent.
Now obviously, $20 doesnt justify opening up a formal investigation. So do we just let it slide?
