It was all a dream

I'm still trying to figure out if yesterday actually happened or not. I'm kind of hoping I dreamt it all, because some of it is just that bizarre. Unfortunately, I do believe it all happened so at least I got a blog post out of it.
At work yesterday I was trying to help this man that called me screaming and yelling. What are the rules of engagement for talking to TM? That's correct, no raised voices- I don't tolerate it. So I had to talk to him like he was 3 years old. "Sir, you aren't going to continue to yell at me. You need to be quiet and listen so that you can get the help you need. No sir, that is not correct you aren't listening properly. It doesn't matter when the policy started. It could have been 5 minutes ago or 5 months ago, it is in place now, and you need to follow it. You're making this much harder than it has to be. Look! I'm helping you now, I don't know what you were told, but this is what I'm telling you." Y'all in the time we had that conversation he could have filled out the paper faxed it back and gotten it approved. But since he wanted to argue and act like king of the buttholes, he'll be bringing the me the paper today. Pray for me, I don't know how I'll handle it if he is in my face hollering. I'm pretty sure it's not professional for me to sit and act like I don't hear him talking.
Moving on, last night I was sitting on the couch painting my nails watching HGTV while talking to TheCount. All of a sudden we hear a screech and a boom. We run to the window and see that there has been a car accident, but we can't see what happened because the trees are blocking it. Then we see 2 hispanic males running from over there. A few cars stopped so I was like oh they have it taken care of. Then I saw the young black guys that hang out together across the street walking over there. No ambulance has shown up yet and it's 3 minutes later- for my neighborhood that's late. The ambulance is normally there in 30 seconds. I saw another group of dudes walk over and look confused. Then the police came. One car stopped at the scene. The other car talked to the black dudes and pulled off. Then I realized the guys that were in the car ran. I got dressed and went outside to tell the police what I saw. We (and by we, I mean all of the police in our town, while I stood and talked to people) had a dang search party at 1am. They gathered up all the guys that fit the description and did a line up on the street. It was quite interesting.
When I got back in the house TheCount was fussing at me for my midnight crusading, but I really didn't care. I am a responsible citizen...and a snitch. By now it's like 2 am and I was ready to go to bed. I got in the bed and I'm sleep and at 2:30 TheCount comes in and tells me I'm missing all the action. I look out the window and the police are out there with a group of dudes and they're cursing each other out. I have no idea what is going on. As I'm looking out the window I see 2 guys riding their bike down the street talking and laughing like it's not 2:30 am. TheCount and I were so baffled. At one point somebody was in handcuffs- I think. I got back in the bed and then I heard the conversation outside even more loudly than before. Y'all I looked out the window to see 4 white police officers racing 3 black men in the middle of the street. A dang foot race like they were 10 and it was 2 in the afternoon. They were all out there talking and laughing and loud! I have no idea what was going on- I'm still hoping it was all a dream.

The cops were having a "ready, set, go" race? I'm confused too.

I really hope that man does not show up acting a fool!
