My Boss Thinks I Am Crazy. Again.

I was late to work today.

Not because I slept in or played too long on the computer this morning or because I couldn’t figure out what to wear or because I had a flat tire or because of traffic or because of any other plausible excuse.

I was late to work this morning because on my way into the office, just as I hit the downtown streets, the downtown streets of the fourth largest city in the U.S., at 8 A.M., which is rush hour, in a huge metropolitan city, there was a frigging horse in the road. A HORSE IN THE MIDDLE OF AN INTERSECTION IN DOWNTOWN HOUSTON.

What was a horse doing in the middle of a freaking intersection in the middle of rush hour in Houston?

The Horse was surrounded by large buses and a bazillion cars in the middle of an intersection, because the Ass that was riding it was pulling over someone.

A mounted cop, took his horse into the middle of an intersection, causing traffic to back up onto the freeway, causing people to slam on their brakes in order to avoid hitting a HORSE IN THE MIDDLE OF AN INTERSECTION in order to pull someone over.

I can’t come up with a good reason to pull over someone that involves taking your HORSE INTO THE MIDDLE OF AN INTERSECTION. Can you?

Off the top of my head, no. Neither can I!

LMAO! Only in Houston! I can't think of a decent reason either!

There is no good reason for that. I was almost 10 minutes late this morning too but not because of a horse in an intersection. Luckily I don't think anyone noticed I was late.

Well it's an pretty original reason for being late!

When I moved to Houston we saw riders on horseback 5 minutes after crossing the state line. I knew I was in the shit at that moment.

That's insane. And it sounds like a completely made up implausible story for being late to work. Next you'll be saying the dog ate your homework.
