Samurai sword garage robbery: Two arrested after Wearside raid
Police have arrested two men after an attempted robbery with a Samurai sword at a Wearside petrol station.
This is the sister garage to the garage I am working at!
I was unashamedly scared the night before by of being robbed but it was just a casual forecourt drug deal.
Other news. A car was set on fire lastnight and blew up, on the opposite side of the road to the garage. Two scumbags I was serving ran and and undercover copper car pulled in and collared them. Is this worth the low wage? Certainly not boring this job.
Haha. Sounds interesting. Keep a diary. I'll publish it for you
The sad sight of suicide bridge (a working title?) Every week I've been in this job with a clear view of the Wear bridge there has been an Ambulance stopped with blues and twos for about an hour then pull away witth the lights off - shit loads of jumpers.
Honestly. Keep a diary. And the title is good
Wanna see the underbelly of society? Work in a garage. It's bloody depressing. Makes me, almost happily sad way - feel I'm doing okay in life. The sights I've seen in such a little space of time. Oooff! It's depressing and life affirming.
Use that as the opening haha
Oh dear. Yet I have time to do this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DYEMyMnPdnU
Tween drunkards/E-ing party people coming from town in Taxis/Taxi drivers full of coke-or speed/Drunk drivers buying alcohol/Halfway house messes dropping tonnes of ones and two pence pieces on the counter and asking 'what can I get with this?'... Certianly not boring.
(thats the back cover blurb haha)
I'm missing off nuggets like the 90' year old man who, every day he turns up for his morning paper at 4.45am and stands in the cold until they come - then goes on about his daily routine. The wind blew him over into the road the other day and he didn't show up for his morning papers - The Sun, The Mail and The Mirror - I feared the worst. I love that man. I'd miss our early morning banter of a morn.
The Sun, the Mail and The Mirror - man. Book number two title?
Write it down man, dont tell me. I wanna see the finished piece.
Easier just to decompress on here... then you do with as you will. Man it's a fucking wierd job.
Haha. My phone keeps buzzing motherfucker!!!
Yeah - It's 9 at night for me. Technically 9 am, just came off nighshift and needed to partially vent and partially started drinking at 9am/pm. This is the start of my four days off. (4 on 4 off and my time is upside down). But if I barf out nuggets of brain junk on here - then mebbeys one day I'll elabourate and make it a just for us book of 'times in petrol-selling-24 booze license land'.
(Why, since I was sitting on 20,000 litres of fuel when a car blew up on the other side of the road thinking 'shit - yeah - I'm closing this place up and knocking of early? Thoroughly a fucked up job)
