Does this dope know or maybe even care that each card swipe costs the business money? That is not cool.

He's 27 years old and has two adult sons? Oh my gosh how old was he when he started making babies,age nine? Figure his sons to be adults must be at least 18. 27 minus 18 says he was banging chicks at age nine. I think that's a record.

I don't think the caller was the one arrested...I would bet the 27 year old was one of the sons...amazing that grown men can't work something out without needing to be arrested (same holds for women too...not being sexist...us girls can be some nasty witches!). :-)
