So today was interesting. The most part was actually really productive and stuff, and the only thing i needed to leave for was to teach a tai chi class and practice some kung fu with my kung fu brothers and sifu.
So i get to the place, and i start teaching my tai chi class and it's going pretty well for the most part.
Then some teenager, like 15-16 years old just runs into the room! He's gasping for breath and saying, "Please help me, he's threatening to burn me with a blowtorch" and i don't know what's going on, but i see this kid across the street on a bicycle looking at us.
I just sort of shrug and usher him to the backroom, I was still teaching a class, and i just wanted him to catch his breath and let him take a moment. I continue the class, perioidically looking up to see if that guy was still there, but he left like a couple minutes after the kid ran in.
When i checked on him, I saw that he was on his phone, trying to call his mom and dad, and he was speaking to somebody. So I continue class.
He comes in, and asks if he can use my phone, because he wasn't getting any reception. Part of me was a little hesitant because, well he was talking to somebody earlier, and i don't know if he was put up on a dare or something to steal something or whatever, but i was almost done with class, so i told him that if he was willing to wait till the end of my class, then I would let him use my phone so i can watch him. I had no reason to not trust him, but at the same time i know teens get put up to shit. However, I also know Phones can be shitty too, especially since i live in the mountains, reception can really be wonky
Fortunately, a kung fu brother of mine showed up, so i caught him up with the situation. And if he was willing to let him use his phone to call somebody to pick him up. I never got the time to really stop and hear his story, mainly cause my hands were full.
So the class ended, my sifu showed up, and i asked my friend if they took care of it. He said that they couldn't reach the dad, so they called the police to pick him up, given his recent event. Post too long. Click here to view the full text.
