ok...on tuesday april the 15th i received a call from my fiancee. usually i get calls from her telling me how much she loves me...that day it was different. she tells me someone stole her bicyle...wtf?!! i try my best to console her but am failing. not much i can do...i probably would react the same way, tears and anger. we hang up with each other and now i go in to panic mode...so many emotions/feelings running through my head. i can't even dispatch properly...i start sending people to the wrong addresses and sometimes i just ignored calls.
i regain my cool...somewhat. i immediately start texting everyone i know that bikes...every single messenger who's saved in my phone gets a text. the other bike dispatcher sends out a mass text to our crew about what happened. i begin to get text messages back about how sorry they are that this happened and they will keep their eyes peeled. my crew calls me one at a time to get as many details as possible. her bicycle is so distinct that somehow i knew we would find it...we did!!
i get a phone call close to six o'clock. it's al(the whole time im calling him adam)...he tells me he has the bike at his house. i start freaking out...make some phone calls and my favorite person in the world, michelle, heads out with her car to retrieve the bike. the bike was fine...only the rear tube was missing. don't know why the tube was missing but it was. i'm very happy we got the bike back...still shady on the details on how the bike was stolen, who took it, and so on.
one of my messengers said that another messenger saw a man walking around with the bike...he approached the gentleman inquiring about the bike and the man asked for 100.oo bucks for it. the messenger then punched the man and took the bike back to his crib. this is when they realize who it belongs to and i get the bike back. i have also heard that it was another messenger who stole my sh*t...NOT COOL!! see, as much as i sit around defending you cats then you go around stealing other peoples property. i really hope that the first story is the way it went down. that messengers were heroes and not dipsh*ts. thank you to everyone...seriously...who helped me get my bike back. i owe you cats a brew or three...it's much appreciated. to the cat who stole it...messenger or not...i don't even know what to say. good luck in life kid...life has a tendency to take back what you're stealing.
