  • Well now, that was interesting...

    So, little story. Was an interesting day.

    So, me and my girlfriend, as well as one of my good friends from football season were on the way to Eastern Passage (just a place around here) to pick up another friend.

    Anyway, along the way we saw a turtle laying in the middle of the road, no where near water (I thought turtles needed water?). Anyway, we pulled over and watched him almost get hit by about 3 cars. So, we grabbed him, and placed him in his trunk with a damp towel. We were going to take him to the vet just 'cause he had some cuts on his legs, and didn't look to well off.

    We named him Franklin.

    So, when we got to our friends house, he didn't have any container large enough to put him in until we got to the vet. (Was one of the few open at the time, aside from the 24 hour emergency one, which costs a ridiculous amount.)

    So, we decided we'd head to Wal-Mart to pick up a large tubberware moving container to put him in for the trip. (We checked out what type of turtle he was on the internet, what he ate, and what his 'habitat' should be. Turned out to be a snapping turtle. )

    Well, Adrian went to find the best bargain on a container, while me, John, and Carly went to McDonalds to get milkshakes.

    10 minutes later, the security guards come in and tell us we're under arrest for theft under $5000, and escort us to their office in the back of the store.

    Turns out Adrian tried to steal the container, which costed $6 taxes in.

    So, they take our pictures, ID us, and all that jazz. They laughed the entire time after we told them the story.

    Than, the cop arrived. He read over the report. First sentence out of his mouth was, "So, you tried to steal a six dollar tubberware container to house a turtle you found on the side of the road and named Franklin?"

    Anyway, we ended up getting let go as we were innocent. They tried to charge us with accomplices to theft, saying that we knew what he was going to do, but since we were in McDonalds for the entirety of Adrians little adventure, they didn't have a case against us. He got let off with a verbal warning.

    Just thought I'd share.

      Oh, and if you're wondering what happened to Franklin -- the turtle that got us arrested -- he's in good hands. Being animal lovers, we paid for his vet bill. $86 dollars for some meds, and gave him to the vet. They said there is a local reptile place that will look after him until he's recovered, than release him back to a local, suitable habitat.

        wow That makes for an interesting day.

        I'm sure Franklin will remember you fondly for saving his turtle behind.

        And I always knew McDonalds shakes were good for something...just not an alabi!

            this is what pisses me off...

            you say that franklin will probably remember them...

            and you are perhaps correct...

            but all that proves is that my memory is worse than a turtle named franklin...

                      I thought if you save a turtle you get three wishes? Or is that dolphins?...Anyway, you need to find Franklin and make sure you aren't owed any wishes. You could have just wished for a tupperware container and saved a lot of headaches.

                          Wouldn't have been an issue if you're friend wasn't trying to do something illegal, even for only 6 bucks...

                            I'm not saying he didn't deserve it. It was a stupid thing to do.

                            But, I'm thinking it was a spur-of-the-moment thing... Seeing how he shopped around for the best deal, only to try to steal it.
