I have had a few experiences that I'd like to share, but what are yours?
A few years back, back when I didn't have a phone, me and my friend were out jumping on the trampoline. It was a warm night, and so we were just jumping and minding our own business, until a red truck comes up to the bus stop (she lives on a corner,) then stops. We thought the person was just gonna be there for a few moments, but he never got out.
We decide to keep jumping, ignoring the person. My friend then looks over, and realizes that the person was taking pictures. I look, and indeed, the person is. A few moments after I looked, he left. We decided to head to my house. The truck was going around the block, following us. I told her to go home, and I would watch her.
We never saw the truck again.
School Lock down
Now, me living in a super quiet and reserved area, this was a surprise.
During first period (I was in band,) we were all having a pretty normal day. We had our instruments put away cause we were watching a movie. The Vice Principal (VP) got onto the intercom saying, "Could we please have all go into lock down format? Thanks." Now, he's a super chill guy, so we all thought it was a drill. We grab our stuff, and casually walk into the closet.
After a couple of minutes, we heard the people coming around making sure the doors were locked, and we were waiting for the "drill" to be over. The VP once again got onto the intercom, and said "This is not a drill, we are waiting on the Sheriffs Office to give us more details."
We were all sitting there like O.O, and for the first time in a long time, I was actually worried about my brother being safe as he goes into school.
Every few minutes, the VP would update us, and my band teacher, who always entertains us when we have emergencies, was telling us stories. After ~45 minutes in the closet, the VP got on saying that we could go into the more relaxed lock down, so we went back into the classroom to finish watching the movie.
By this point, we've been in school for two hours and for that two hours, we were stuck in the band room. We all got so thirsty (there isn't a drinking fountain in the room,) so the teacher was handing out really old water bottles (they had expired 5 years prior.) Eventually, we were let out to go to our third hour classrooms (mine was math ;-;)and got a fun story to tell!
The Subway a mile up got robbed, and the armed one decided to come running towards us, so we were put in lock down. Fun fact: It was a 10 degree F winter day, and the dude that was running toward us took his clothes off. So basically a naked, armed, man running toward a Middle School. Fun.
Also, my band class is probably the one class that I'm closest too.
