Florida was OK, I guess...

Is that 'Otis'?

I was expecting someone more along the lines of The Devil's Rejects.

Coaster Punchman said...

Looks like one of my family reunions.

Bubs said...

Mob, for Otis picture a beefier Chris Rock with no impulse control, but cheerful.

CP, let me know next time you have one. I'll bring the three bean salad.

Dino aka Katy said...

do i dare asking what the side job was?

Splotchy said...

I know that many people would be inclined to focus on the little fella, but check out the package on Mr. Rainbow Shorts!

Ooh la la!

Bubs said...

Splotchy, yes, Mr Rainbow shorts is sporting an impressive male camel toe.

Katy, I was hired to go to Jacksonville, Florida to investigate a series of employee thefts at a warehouse. Originally the job was going to entail 2 nights of surveillance and 4 or 5 non-accusatory informational interviews with supervisors. Based on the information in the interviews, I ended up interviewing a total of 13 people and stayed an extra day.

I just got done with my reports last night.

Employee theft. Don't get me started. They are the reason I hope I never have to go back into retail.

Dino aka Katy said...

so did you find the culprit?

Johnny Yen said...

Okay, that picture is not encouraging me to remove Florida from the "handful of states I have not visited yet" list anytime soon.

Grant Miller said...

Hey! My wife is from Florida!

Bubs said...

Johnny, in all fairness to the Sunshine State that picture may not have been taken in Florida. Maybe. But it captures a certain Floridian essence.

Katy, not to the extent that they could terminate or prosecute. I did identify two good suspects, and one who was fired three weeks ago for unrelated reasons. Mostly I made a bunch of recommendations on improving their security, because right now it's the security equivalent of a colander.

Bubs said...

Ten, employee theft is a pain in the ass. A good deal of our time at the PD is taken up with internal thefts involving business and retail stores. The thing is, it costs tons of money in loss, and police can't really devote time to investigate it thoroughly. Most businesses don't have the resources to hire a private investigator or security consultant to do long term surveillance and interviews.

Bubs said...

Grant, I notice she's not living there now, is she? She must be one of the good ones.

Bubsy,

Where did you find a picture of my dad?

Bubs said...

Kim, we used to drink together at the Legion Hall. I swiped it from him when he went to the head.

justacoolcat said...

Midgets and a cod piece and things were just ok?

You, sir, have much higher standards than I.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

I hope you managed to get some phone numbers for me.

Dale said...

I need the phone number for the little fella's dentist.

Bubs said...

Dale, I heard he likes to grab people by the ass. Be careful. I'd steer clear of his barber as well.

Barbara, I met a couple guys this week who'd be happy to spend time with you, as long as you'll kick in a few extra dollars to help em meet their child support payments.

Coolcat, I admit I've become jaded. I'll try and be more open and accepting in the future.
