well, i haven’t gotten any sort of citation (yet) as a result of my run-in with the ornery old independent security officer in my neighborhood. i don’t know if any normal dude can even call someone else in for running a stop sign, but he seemed pretty confident in his ability to, and he seemed like he had plenty of experience busting people’s balls over stupid and inconsequential shit. five decades of experience, at least, assuming he spent his first couple of decades getting his own balls busted by his own ornery old neighbors. are you surprised i’m still thinking about this? i am, and it makes me uncomfortable.
if his goal was to get under my skin, i guess it worked. it’s pretty thin these days, anyway.
