Friday Five 021921


Today's words: Impound, partner, lip, knowledge, full.

It was my day to drive the tow truck and my partner was doing dispatch. The radio squelched, "You done with the delivery to Daniels Repair Shop?"

"Dropping it off now," I replied.

"Got an impound for you at the county courthouse. 4th Street and Lomas. A red Ford F-150." He read off the license plate.

Why do I always get the impounds? They're the most dangerous calls. Guys who drive pick-ups tend to get a little crazy seeing their ride on the hook. That's why on a job like this I pack a Glock 19 9mm with a ten round clip. Anyone gives me lip I put my hand on the grip. This gives them full knowledge I mean business.  If they make a move I fill them full of holes. So far I've had no takers.
