The other night I was dispatched to a traffic collision involving two vehicles which had moved to a parking lot. When I arrived, I saw a man and woman speaking to each other.
I got out of my car and asked, “Is anyone hurt?”
In a loud and friendly voice the man said, “We’re both Laker fans. I don’t want to make a big deal out of this.”
Since he was in his mid-fifties, I figured he’d been a Lakers fan for a long time. As a joke I asked, “Would it be a big deal if she was a Celtics fan?”
He turned toward the woman, who was in her mid-twenties and asked, “Are you a Phoenix Suns fan?”
It sounded like the guy didn’t like the Phoenix Suns instead.
You just never know what you’re going to hear at a traffic collision scene.
