In which I get the cops called on me

Today was my final day of the semester. I've handed in my final portfolio and taken my last final exam. But not without being interrogated by the cops. Evidently, it's illegal to be taking finals so late in the evening (7-10 PM) and I was apprehended by a large man lurking in the shadows as I left the building (yes, it was creepy). Since I was ID-less, he had to verify that I was a student and interrogated me as to why I was in the building. Evidently, I had set off an alarm as I left. Once I was in the parking lot and free to go, I realize that there are three Police trucks with several officers in each surrounding the building. I mean, seriously, I weigh less than 100 lbs. and don't usually carry semi-automatics around. I sure hope they felt a little silly.

Who knew that taking a final was so dangerous and suspicion-arousing.

But I am relieved to be done, and not in jail.

Until Wednesday...(when I start back to classes. Not go to jail..)

That is so weird. I hope you have a restful few days off.

BWAHAHAHAHAH! I'm sorry. It probably was quite scary at the time, but it's hilarious that they felt the need to call out the calvary for little ol' you! ;-)

Atleast you can have some piece of mind. The security around the school at that time of night seems to be pretty awesome.

Hey, at least they respond quickly. That has to make you feel safe.

That is too funny! I would have been nervous though :)

Ha! I hope they did feel embarrassed, treating a tiny little female like an intruder! To your credit, I'm sure you did look very threatening.

You would think there would have been some forethought by the university to turn off alarms when there are exams going on.

Congrats on finishing all your exams!!! Yay!

and seriouslt, you start back Wed....but that's so soon!
