Summer. Oh, and homeless occurrences. | LOVELY LITTLE RANTS

Summer. Oh, and homeless occurrences.

Summer is coming.
Spring, you're great but you can't ever beat summer.
In Arizona, Summer is practically here. Always.

Yesterday, I was driving around and found myself in ghetto Mesa.
The part of Mesa by sunsplash... and cheap motels. Roach motels.

Anyways, I had forgotten I was scheduled for a phone interview for a place to Lifeguard in Orem UT.
So, they call and I parked in a ghetto Mesa parking lot.

Literally not even 5 minutes went by when a scary elderly women on a bike came up to my car window asking for my money.

Uhh... I just pointed to my phone and motioned that I was a little tied up a the moment.
The distraction caused me to spurt out some "uhhs" and "one second, a scary lady is standing outside my car window" to the lady interviewing me.
 Uh huh, clearly I am professional.

I tried to ignore the distraction, but this lady waited. oh her bike. staring at me. waiting for me to hang up.
As she was waiting, I saw two thuggin gang-stars walk up, do the drug deal hand thing and walk away.

Like it was ndb or something!
Needless to say, I was frightened.

Finally, bike lady puts her hand up and does the money-rub-your-fingers-together thing and I shrug.
So she leaves.
It was awesome. 

On the ride home, some more thuggin hombres keep driving right next to me and motioning weird things.
I looked away. Obviously. 

The moral of the story is, do nawt go playing in ghetto Mesa. Unless you're looking for trouble. Or you're crazy. Or you're trying to deal drugs. Or you're begging for cash.
Other than that, don't do it.


  1. I definitely just peed myself laughing a little bit. I feel like those things happen to me often too. Like...far too often. It's like they can smell out the people who they know will feel awkward because of it. Gah.

  2. Scarrrrryyy! I went there once, but it must've been the nice, pretty all american part of Mesa..or a completely different mesa all wait.. you were talking about AZ Mesa, right?
