Wednesday, I was at the doctor’s for a consultation on surgery and while I’m off work for the day, the power went out.
Damn my misfortune.
Turns out, though, the power outage was caused by a N.A.T. It didn’t happen to our store, but it happened to a gun range on the same transformer, and this is too good to not share.
WARNING! If you have any love for humanity, you may not find this as funny as I did.
There’s a gun range not too far from the store. In fact, you can hear the guns being fired from our store and a lot of people wonder what it is. It’s close enough that we’re on the same transformer.
So, these two N.A.Ts went to the transformer and decided, in their INFINITE WISDOM and UNENDING INTELLIGENCE, and their severe case of ‘The Poor’, they were going to strip the copper out of the transformer and sell it.
After shooting said transformer, they managed to pry it open and the dude grabbed the wiring to get to work.
He was electrocuted.
The other one took off running, and the power got knocked out for a while. Now N.A.T #2 is on the run and N.A.T #1 is dead from his would-be attempt. When Tribal found out and told us, N.A.T #1 turned out to be a known crackhead in the area.
I found it funny, but I’m a terrible person.
