The husband and I have a date night this weekend and I wanted a pair of fancy black tights to go with my dress. My daughter loves to shop, even if it's just window shopping, so I took her with me. It was a quick trip to Target, even though I did walk out with more than I planned. A quick trip like this doesn't usually work up an appetite, but by the time GG and I hit the check out, she was "staaaarrrrrr-ving!!!" My skinny little girl can eat like the typical teenage boy!
After paying, we headed over towards the snack bar when she said she wanted mac 'n' cheese. You have to get the whole kids meal to get mac 'n' cheese and I wasn't doing that. I told her we would drive down the road and stop at Sheetz. They have mac 'n' cheese.
We drove down the road, avoiding construction cones and pot holes that seem to be on every. stinkin. road in this forsaken city. As I went to make the turn into Sheetz, I noticed the light show provided by a local police car. I assumed someone was pulled over for blowing a red light or speeding, but as I drove by, I noticed a young woman being cuffed.
In an effort to distract GG who likes all things sparkly and flashy, I started telling her about all the trips to Sheetz I made when I was younger and the crazy food I got with my friends. She laughed at me, but I did not sway her from the decision to eat mac 'n' cheese. We ordered, paid, and GG asked if we could sit at one of the tables outside so she could eat her food while it was still hot. Assuming the light show was gone because once your arrested, everyone pretty much leaves the scene, I said yes. I assumed wrong.
Sitting at the table outside is when I realized that we were witnessing an undercover prostitution bust. Why? Let me explain...
A total of 3 vehicles were pulled over. The first, a gray car. The driver was a plain clothed police man/ The second, a minivan. The driver of said minivan was handed papers from the uniformed police man in vehicle number 3. Minivan man was also told to drive off after the girl was cuffed. Upon closer inspection of the girl, her booty shorts and too-small tank could have fit my 10 year old! Am I again making assumptions? Probably. But it sure was funny watching her argue with the cops from the back of the patrol car, while trying to wriggle out of the cuffs. I really hope the minivan man wasn't married. Then it would be a sucky night for both of them.
I realize it's cruel of me to laugh at other's misfortune, but this situation is why you should never be a prostitute. Or try to pick one. Or if you are a prostitute or pick one up, don't get caught!
