    Interesting afternoon

    Today was a good day to go for an ammo run! Pulling into Wally world I found a $5 in the parking lot. Then discovered the ammo was $2 cheaper than they had quoted me over the phone :)

    On my way back home, I saw a black man wearing a blood soaked wife beater and wearing a straw hat ran in front of my car! I did a double take and I was amazed to see how much blood was on this guy, it looked like he had been shot in the head!

    I immediately pulled over and called 911. I informed them of what I saw and where he was running to and she thanked me for the tip and informed me that officers were looking for him. I have a feeling this guy is a violent criminal who had just tried to rob someone who was packing. I am happy to do my part in preventing his escape!

    Way to go, you saved at least $7, plus you performed a public service.

    Good luck finding the $5, good luck on the price of the ammo!

    An interesting afternoon indeed!
    Strange how you can go weeks, if not months, without anything notable happening, and then have a day with several.

    He was probably hit by a car running after that five dollar bill he dropped.

    You DID buy a lottery ticket didnt you?

    Sounds like you had a pretty interesting day, congrats on the find of money and the savings on the ammo AND for doing a public service by calling 911.

    Hey Thats My $5 give it back. Nice to get some cheep ammo and help put a scumbag away.

    Yep, bad things. someone lost $3, WW lost $2 per box, and a BG got messed up.
