A girl named Linda...

Everyone has a crazy friend. As a matter of fact - I - am usually that friend. This girl, however, takes crazy to an entirely new level. Now I get some idea of what my friends usually go through around me.

The other day I was running late for school - seems like I am always running late these days. Well, Linda and I car pool and it was my turn to drive. We had to write an exam and when we got there there were no parking spaces in the student lot. Well, how I see it.... I pay to attend the school and they get paid to be there... so I can park where ever I want to. (Well.... that's how I'd like to see it anyways. LOL.) So Linda tells me just to park in faculty parking since we are late. I figured, what the hell? Everyone else does. So we did. THEN when we went to leave a faculty member had parked his car so that it very effectively blocked 8 other cars. We just happened to be one of them.

Linda marches her Latino butt right into the school and furnishes them with the license plate and demands that they page the prof to move (can you believe that?). Twenty minutes later this very proper English accented prof comes walking out and approaches my car window. We begin to have a conversation that is relatively civil (though I seem to be winning the very civil argument) until Linda gets pissed off at him for his high and mighty attitude. Then she very effectively steam rolls him into oblivion. I have not, in my entire life, witnessed anything so equally horrific and amusing. Eventually he gives up with a little shrug and stutter and moves his car.

The best bit was, when he backed into a parking spot.... he hit the fence rather hard with his car. I put on my sweetest smile and waved my thanks... but somehow I think perhaps I'd better keep my head down in the halls from now on.

That's hysterical. And you're right... you are usually the crazy friend. And I wouldn't want it any other way! I lurve you just the way you are :)

The prof was wrong but was Linda going to pay your fine had you been busted?

Never screw with a Latina. They get all mad shady and shit, chica.

Did you go upside his head? I would have gone upside his head AND broke my foot off in his ass. (I heard these phrases at work yesterday and have been looking for a chance to use them.)

NO! Keep your head high! He's a prof not a cop...and besides, you're probably smarter than him anyhow ;o)
