Thursday Therapy 

Published August 25, 2016 by hairballexpress

Greetings humans. ☕️ 

Tonight the humans and I need some therapy, so I’m keeping this short, so I can snuggle them and ease their nerves a little. 

You see, today when human #2 went to work, he immediately texted human #1 to tell her to turn on the news – someone had driven right through the store he works in and when he got to work he (and everybody else) walked into a disaster.

The next thing they knew, the news teams were there and human #2 (and the rest of the employees) were spending the the day trying to clean up the mess.

A woman had come into the store and tried to buy 2,000 (+) gift cards with a check – (and the check didn’t go through)- so she got mad and screamed at everyone, then left and came right back – in her SUV – and DROVE RIGHT INTO THE STORE (with no regard fur the employees and customers)- and then backed the car up (in the store), and drive around some more, destroying everything in her path before speeding out the other door.

The store was completely destroyed and the humans are grateful that neither of them were there when it happened -(although they both had been there and left a few hours before). And miraculously, no one was hurt.

It turns out that the woman who did this thing had a mental illness (fur which her doctor had reduced her medication), and she had been using drugs. (She was later found and arrested). It was also learned that she had just lost her mother.

I have a lot to say about this – but not tonight. Maybe tomorrow. 

*it’s been a long day*

  • Oh NO!! Thank goodness human #1/#2 and everyone else was not in the store my sweet friends. I just shake my head sometimes at people that go mad in this world and try to hurt others. It’s beyond reasoning for me to comprehend. Please take care of your humans today and let them know we love them. XOXO – Bacon

  • When you said the woman wanted to buy 2000 gift cards and drove through the store when the check wouldn’t go through, I wondered if something had triggered a psychotic episode.

    Snuggle hard, snuggle long, and you’ll be amply rewarded.

    • The news reports say that she had already been having her worst bipolar episode ever – then the Dr. reduced her meds and her mother died. Reports are that she had never done anything like this (or otherwise violent). What she did was pawful, of course – but she needs proper treatment and help. Who knows what losing her mother did to her? It had happened the night before if we understand correctly.

  • OH MY!!!! The Dash Kitten Crew and I read this with our jaw dropping open Oh heck. I am just thankful no-one was hurt but the poor shop and people. So much mess and stuff to clear up after one moment’s madness. I know saying sorry won’t help much but I am sorry this happened because of the upset is has caused so many people.
