So I wasn't gonna write today as it is the first day back from vacation (well vacation from lunch lady land at least) and I had to work both my jobs so I am a bit tired. But after my husband called me at work tonight I couldn't pass up sharing this gem with you all.
My hubby takes the commuter train home from work every day. He hates doing it because he works construction and is usually the only guy on the train not in a suit and tie, but hey when you don't drive you do what you have to do. I was at work and the kids were with the sitter until he gets home. Anyways, he boards the train in South Station and a whole bunch of cops come on, search the train then get off and the train leaves. They get to the first stop which was Back Bay. All of a sudden cops board the train and start going up the aisles. Next thing ya know the Asian man with them points to my dear hubby and tells the cops that he is the man that robbed the bank.
WTF!!!!! My husband has probably set foot in a bank once in his life and that was only because I needed his signature on something. He wouldn't know who to hit up for the money, hell he doesn't know what a teller is. At any rate they pull him off the train and start questioning him, looking through his stuff, running his info and basically harassing him. Thankfully they realized they had the wrong guy. Chances are it was when they listened to him talk and his brogue went into full affect and it because clear that if he went up to a teller and demanded money they would have no idea what he was talking about. He had no weapon, unless you consider the banana that was left in his lunch bag a weapon. So after all the drama they put him back on the train where he received applause from the other passengers (chances are because they just wanted the train to start moving again). The worst part is that the police NEVER apologized for the treatment he received.
Now this isn't the first time something like this has happened to him. Last time he went to Ireland he was detained by homeland security for two hours because they thought he was a terrorist. Now don't get me wrong, he may be from Northern Ireland but he hates the IRA and everything they do and would certainly never join up with them. He is a make love not war type of guy. He is stereotyped as a thug because he is 6 feet tall, 240 pounds and almost never shaves. So he is a bit fuzzy at times (ok most of the time) but hell it makes him more sexy. I just wish that the authorities would stop judging a book by it's cover. Kinda like the State Trooper who though the dogs tail was a deer and shot the poor woman. I am surprised my husband didn't get blamed for that one as well, he is a hunter after all.
