So I’ve been summoned to court over that whole getting-my-bike-stolen-shenanigans. I’m not sure how I count as a “witness” being as I didn’t see anything actually happen. I just happened upon a non-existent bike, and saw the remnants of my pitiful U-lock snappage.
This will be my first trip to court. And I will try to get out of it, mind you.
Interesting that I’ve learned the guy’s name who tried to steal the Trek, as the Superior Court subpoena reads: “The People of the State of California v. The Dude.” Sounds very nice, having the whole of the state on my side, and all.
The way I look at it, Dude and his family are forever tied to me. Now I can pray for/bless them by family name, best I can. It all feels very personal, now.
