Another senseless 'drive by fruiting'.....

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Keller Williams Realty

I love local newspapers.  I receive them free in my driveway once a week for my area in South Forsyth county GA called the Forsyth Herald.  The best part of it is looking at the DUI and drug arrests to see if you know anyone unlucky enough to be cited there.  And there have been neighbors and neighbor kids in there. Ah.... THAT's why mom is driving juniors 'beater' to the tennis courts today.............

Tomato

So this week in our local paper under the Police Blotter section( and here we go, this is funny..) Another case of drive-by 'fruiting' and the article is as follows:

'Forsyth County deputies were contacted by the security guard at Laurel Springs subdivision (my neighborhood and one of my farm areas)after he became another victim of a senseless drive by 'fruiting'.

The security guard said he was looking into a report of drivers being pelted with strawberries when his security vehicle was hit with a tomato.  The wayward foodstuff knocked a sensor off his radar unit, which was located on the windshield, said investigators.

The guard told deputies later that evening a blue Jeep Cherokee pulled up to the entrance and exit gate.  One of several teenage boys inside the car was overheard laughing and saying "You hit it" before they drove off, he said.'

SO my friends, do I tweet this, do I post it on Facebook, do I send a card out to my farm area with a coupon for free strawberries or tomato plant-I want to have FUN with this!!!!!! Market stats are so not as funto talk about, and are depressing too.

I wanted to be a journalism major in college, after interning at a paper doing obits and thinking up ways to make incidents like this sound interesting, I decided upon sales......

Remember the movie Mrs. Doubtfire?? That's where the phrase came from--

Geez!  I guess I was lucky to get out of Laurel Springs last week without being "fruited"!  I've heard that your security guard is pretty tough, Mary Anne.  Sour grapes, maybe?  (Sorry, that was bad.)
