Good Just got evacuated... [Apr. 27th, 2013|03:14 pm]
Clockwork Fox
darkechibi and I were just about to check out from the local Wal-Mart when everyone was rushed out due to a rumor that someone in the back of the store might have a firearm (which would have been perfectly legal in NC anyway). After the store employees refused to check us out, and the panicked clerks were shouting movie cliche "move move move!" lines (to which I asked them if they were getting a thrill - - no answer) the gaggle of herded turkeys scuttled for their lives past us as we walked to the exit. Guess who was at the front? Some assholes with guns who had come to shoot any misunderstanding. Outside, at least a half dozen cop cars with more people confirmed with firearms had shown up to shoot the rumor.

By the time we got halfway to the car, the rumor had already changed to a wild gunman shooting at people. By the time it makes the front page of the piece of shit local paper, who knows?

I don't think there was even a guy with a gun. I think it's at least as likely that some idiot saw my non-iPhone cell phone holster under my shirt and freaked out. I guess we'll never know, since the truth was dead before aisle ten.
