Fun Experience with the County Police
So today I had a not so great day so my good friend Jace and I were just talking about it at the Food Lion beside my house. Innocent right? I guess more details are needed.... it was like 2:15am. I'm still on Utah time and he's a nice guy who claims to never sleep. So yeah we were loitering, but I never knew it took 3 cop cars to come and check our ID's and give us a warning and tell us to wrap it up and go home. I'm not trying to be a jerk they were doing their job that's all fine and good I just think it was a little weird that it takes 3 cop cars. I get the safety and strength in numbers thing but I felt like I had done something terrible and going away in cuffs for sure when I was just talking. It also was one of those Dorothy when she gets to Oz moments, "We're not in Kansas anymore, Toto." turned into "You're not in Provo anymore, Chelsea." I guess that was just another indication that things are different in Charlottesville than in Provo and it makes perfect sense. But it will still be a moment I won't forget, sitting in Jace's car with 3 squad cars behind us, scared to move, while they check our ID's. (Oh and just to make things more interesting I didn't have my ID on me so I had to give them my name and date of birth).
