    Oh good lord what I night I had!I was called in to work last night cause we have 5 boarding dogs,so my boss asked if I wanted to sleep over,yes sleep over,at the daycare to make sure the dogs are ok.So of course I said YES!My puppy got to come along too,so that was neat.This was our first time ever doing this,so my boss was a bit nervous,and so was I.Everything was going great until the alarm went off!So I grabbed the phone and went to the front door to see if someone was breaking in or whatever,but no one was there.Then I hear the police sirens!Great,like this is what I really needed!They come BANGING on the door,yelling if anyone is in there.I yelled back that I work here,and then opened the door.Of course I still had the phone in my hand(which is black)when I opened the door,and they FREAKED OUT!Both cops pulled their guns out and was aiming them at me and started yelling at me to drop my weapon!So now I FREAKED OUT of course,and dropped the phone to the ground and started crying.One cop kicked the "gun" away and then realized it was phone,so he said to his partner to put his gun down,it's just a phone.So I started to explain to them(between sobs)that I am staying overnight,blah blah blah and that the alarm just went off by itself.Then the alarm company called and said that the alarm is going off because it has a low battery!I gave the phone to the cop so he could hear it for himself,even tho I was sure he believed me by then and he looked really sorry,lol.I then called my boss who freaked out cause she didn't know why I was calling,so she had to come down and confirm that she is the owner of the place and so on.Holy moly,that was NOT fun! I've never had a gun pointed at me,and I don't ever want it to happen again!While all this was happening,all five dogs were barking like crazy and trying to protect me,lol.After everything settled down,I gave them all cookies for trying to protect me [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] My poor pup was terrified that I was going to get hurt [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img] This happened last night at 10pm,and I haven't slept since,lol.I ended up staying the night but I didn't dare close my eyes,lol.I'm a bit tired now [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] Anyways,just thought I would share my little experience here. Good night,I'm going to bed now [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] ~Niki~

    Wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What an experience! If it weren't such a frightening experience, there would be a lot of humour in it - especially about "dropping the weapon" and giving them cookies (which really should be called, 'bakies').

    I am happy to see you posting, though, if you know what I mean.

    Jim,I'm still a little shaken up(maybe in shock)but other than that I'm fine.Actually when I told my parents what happened this morning,I was laughing about it,lol.They weren't laughing tho,lol.Also when my boss came in this morning and drove me home,we talked and laughed about it.She didn't laugh at first,she wanted to make sure I was ok first,but then when I started to laugh she felt comfortable to do so as well [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] It was kinda funny tho cause last night she went to a party and had a bit too much to drink,so when I called her to please come down cause there's a "situation" she was a bit drunk and trying to convince the cops that this is infact her place,lol.(Her husband drove her,who wasn't drinking,otherwise that would have been bad,LOL)~Niki~

    Well It's a good thing that it turned out like it did. Just think what would have happened if the phone rang while you were pointing it at the cops. I though guns were not allowed in Canada. I thought the cops there carried bb guns.
    I don't want to ever hear you tell me what a crimnal I am because I have never had two cops draw their guns on me.

    Like I said I'm glad it turned out ok.

    LOL Ozzy,I don't know what to say [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] Of course guns are allowed in Canada,it's just when weirdo's like you try to bring one over the border is when there's trouble [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] I don't think it was a bb gun,I've never seen a gun in my life,just on tv.But still if I got shot with a bb gun,wouldn't it still hurt?Oh and Oz,the cops that almost shot me(lol) were really cute...not nasty looking female bigfoot [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] Thanks for caring guys,it was quite a night.It may be funny talking about it,but I just woke up and I had a nightmare about it,I think this really effecting me [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img] Oh well.~Niki~

    Glad you're OK.

    However, if more people in Canada owned guns, the police might actually be able to tell the difference between a gun and a phone...
