Then we went to walk the dogs.
I had headed for the living room where Charmed had the dogs ready to go when I heard a blood curdling "AGH" out the window. The following conversation ensued.
Me: "Did someone's face just get ripped off?
Charmed: *Sigh.* Stares out window watching screaming person.
Me: *Walk up to window and watches person who screams as if they are being tortured. Said person walks a few steps and screams "AGH" again.* Then I ask. "Is he screaming at people?" *Looks around and thankfully sees no one in near vicinity.*
Charmed: "I'm calling the non-emergency police number."
Me. "Okay." *Keeps watching said crazy man walking up street continuing to yell at top of his lungs. *Shakes head.*
There are many times when we get a chuckle about things happening outside these windows. This is a touristy city, so you'll have that. But this is the first time we had to alert the good men and women in blue. If I had any doubts I saw six police cars and vans roll by within the next five minutes.
I don't know if they found that individual, but I was reassured by the police presence in such a short time.
I know I have times when I want to yell in frustration at the top of my lungs. But I hold it in, or vent to a friend. I don't purposely set out to wreak havoc upon people, or cars, or animals, etc. All I know is I'd like to track this troubled guy down to thank him for some interesting moments this evening, and providing me with a subject for this rant. :)
Have you ever overheard something that made you think someone was being harmed? Have you ever had to call the police on someone? What do you do to relieve frustration?
