So my 16 year old son had his bike stolen from school 3 weeks ago. It was his fault as he didn't lock it and it was not in the bike cage. Being a little scared he didn't tell us for 4 days. I told him to report it to the police, etc. He didn't. So today at work I'm driving down the main drag in town and I see 3/4 guys in front of a old rundown house with 3/4 bikes. I'm driving about 45mph and just catch a glimpse of someone testing the shocks on a mtn bike w/ the same paint scheme as my son's. I pull over, turn around, park in front of the house and look straight at the bike for about 5 seconds. Then I turn around again and get back to work ( I'm driving a brown truck). Next stop I call my wife and tell her what I saw. Then I call my son and tell him to go to the police station and report the bike stolen. 40 minutes later I have a small time gap and stop at the police station and see my son in the waiting room. "Good," I think. I ask him how the stolen report is going and he gives me a HUGE smile. He says, "Mom has the bike". I think everything is aok and go back to work. I call my wife a little later and she said after work she drove to the address and saw the bike in the front yard and just took it! Now everyone knows who the real bad-a$% in the family really is.
I'm sure the story isn't quite over but what a day! I know this isn't quite c&v but thought you guys and gals might like a good story. --Greg
