The head of a company survived 9/11 because
His son started kindergarten.
Another fellow was alive because it was
His turn to bring donuts.
One woman was late because her
Alarm clock didn’t go off in time.
One was late because of being stuck on the NJ Turnpike
Because of an auto accident.
One of them
Missed his bus.
One spilled food on her clothes and had to take
Time to change.
Car wouldn’t start.
Get a taxi.
The one that struck me was the man
Who put on a new pair of shoes that morning,
Took the various means to get to work but before.
He got there, he developed a blister on his foot.
He stopped at a drugstore to buy a Band-Aid.
That is why he is alive today..
Now when I am
Stuck in traffic,
Miss an elevator,
Turn back to answer a ringing telephone…
All the little things that annoy me,
I think to myself,
This is exactly where
I’m meant to be
At this very moment
Swear to god, some guys are terrified that girls are faking common interests to impress them and act really hostile towards anyone they even SUSPECT of doing such a thing
but then they turn around and fake a whole friendship in the hopes of getting sex out of girls, and get mad at them when it doesn’t work
and they super do not see the irony in that
The 25-year-old student claims officers called her the “Nigerian nightmare” while booking her into jail.
A 25-year-old student at the University of Texas at San Antonio was simply filming officers as they pulled over cars along a highway and posting the videos to Facebook. She wrote: “This is where our funding is going, straight into hard police work,” according to KENS 5.
The next thing Abie Kyle Ikhinmwin knew, she was being hauled off to jail last week. And suffering further indignation, the student claims that police referred to her as “Nigerian nightmare” as she was booked.
She was issued two citations at the scene: failure to obey a police officer and impeding traffic. However, she states that she was arrested on a charge of failure to provide identification to a police officer.
The incident occurred when a police officer approached the bus stop where she was filming and asked her to move her bike. After she complied, he reportedly demanded to see her I.D., she said. She was promptly arrested when she refused.
The former intern at the Bexar County district attorney’s office filmed the entire incident on her cellphone.
“You can’t just arrest me for sitting at a bus stop,” Ikhinmwin tells a San Antonio police officer in the video.
“I don’t want to hurt you,” the officer responds. “M’am, you’re going to go to jail, that’s what’s going to happen. You’re already going to jail.”
Despite the video, police offered a different take.
“I think there was somebody there that certainly seemed to be failing to obey the police officer’s orders,” SAPD Sgt. Javier Salazart explained in the report.
