TIP a cop by blowing an insanely high blood alcohol level in a random breath test.

TIP a cop by blowing an insanely high blood alcohol level in a random breath test.This happened about 2 hours ago. The prank was entirely inadvertent.

I felt like getting something to snack on from the service station, being that most places are closed on Good Friday. So I put my shoes on, put a jacket on, brush my teeth, use mouthwash, floss, and get in my car. 

Within 30 seconds of driving I encounter a random breath test and me and the car behind me are ushered in to be tested. I am fumbling with my wallet to get my license and the cop says it isn't necessary and all he needs is my 'breath'. I jokingly respond something like "oh I guess I could give you that" implying I'm doing him a favour and he sarcastically thanks me in good humour. So I blow into the breathalyzer for about 5 seconds and he checks the reading. He is silent for a bit and I assume he's waiting for the reading to come up. He then asks when the last time I had a drink and I responded with "ugh like 2 years ago haha" and as I finished it clicks that somehow it's a positive reading. So I ask and he confirms and it's clear he is confused because the reading is ridiculously high. I realize that it might be the mouthwash I used a couple of minutes go, given I can still taste it in my mouth. I tell him this and he seems immediately convinced that I'm telling the truth and asks if I have a drink in my car to rinse my mouth out with. I find a nearly full bottle of mountain dew I discarded and gargle with it. I get tested again and the reading is 0 and he laughs and sends me on my way. The funniest part was it was clear that I hadn't had any alcohol based on how jovial and non-chalante I was about being tested, then realizing the culprit was something as simple as mouthwash.

Edit: This happened in Australia.

"How dare you call the cops on me"

"How dare you call the cops on me"

I work in a small store at a little strip mall in a strange part of town. Today at work there was this strange man who was running around outside screaming at and chasing birds (full grown man probably mid 30's). We had a few customers complain but since the man was outside of the store, our policy doesn't really allow us to do much about it.

the man finally decided to come in the store and he was running around knocking things off the shelves and screaming cuss words. My manager tried to talk to him and get him to leave but he refused. so she called the Police. The police came, talked to the man, got him to calm down and walked him out of the store. a few minutes later the man returns and I was the unfortunate person who happened to be at the front of the store when he returned.

him: HOW DARE YOU CALL THE COPS ON ME YOU FILTHY LITTLE SNITCH I WASNT BOTHERING ANYONE

me: uhhhh well sir you were running around our store knocking things over.yelling and screaming cuss words and we had several customers complain about you. We tried to be nice and ask you to leave but you refused so my manager called the police.

him: I CAN YELL AND BE AS LOUD AS I WANT TO THIS IS AMERICA I HAVE FREEDOM OF SPEECH I CAN SAY WHATEVER I WANT WHO CARES WHAT I WAS DOING IM ALLOWED TO DO IT THERE WAS NO REASON TO CALL THE COPS WHAT I DO IS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS

then before I could say anything I guess the cops hadn't left yet and they came back and dragged him outside of the store again.

Please give us themed mana crystals for clearing heroic adventures, instead of yet another card back that will go unused

Instead of giving us yet another card back to go along with the many others we already have (and don't use), it would be really great if we got little green skulls for clearing heroic Naxx, little fiery rubies for clearing heroic BRM, etc..

That way we can pick the card back that we like the most and have a meaningful prize to reflect the accomplishment of clearing a heroic adventure.

Card backs are saturated, it's time for a new type of cosmetic prize. Mana crystals, please!
