Cupcake (youngest daughter) has a history of providing entertainment for our family. She is a little comedian in her spare time. She also has a part-time job while at college as a runner for a law office. I got this email from her last week and it struck me that a big part of college is what you learn outside of the classroom!
Email Message from Cupcake:
Let me start off by saying off by saying that I am very thankful to have a job but I just thought I would tell you of my day so far..
Mr. Lawyer (P.A): I need you to go to the jail now!!!
Me: Yes sir.
The runner van was occupied by the other dude at the time of this "emergency" so I hopped in my car. (they re-embuirse for mileage) I was told that the woman I was picking up would look "rough" and that she was in her early thirties.
I had to call back and ask for the "clients" name.
Yes rough was an understatement. When I got there she was sitting on the sidewalk. And guess what?? She HAD BEEN IN JAIL AND SHE WAS IN MY CAR!!!!!! AH! She smelled like rotten garbage. All she had was a little brown paper sack with her belongings in it. I couldn't believe it. How are you supposed to make conversation? I said, "Are you okay?" Oh jeez wrong move...she sobbed almost the whole way back to the office and was asking me all these questions like"Are you taking me home? "Do you know where my fiance is?"and I kept telling her that I am only the runner. Oh my goodness. I didn't know what to do...I had on the radio but then I thought she may hate this music so I switched it to talk radio and then I thought oh we'll this is probably depressing her.
While riding along..I thought...hmm.. little things that go wrong here and there..and I thought my life had some problems in it...this woman is a wreck.
If you ever need a jail transport release service I'm your gal! ;)
There is more to being a runner than I thought!!
