Some July 4th celebrations almost turned ugly when a neighborhood slip & slide got the police called.
A neighbor, angry that some people got together and set up a slip & slide on the street, called police to complain about the slide blocking traffic and being a problem. The police responded to deal with the slide, only to discover that the road wasn’t blocked at all; there was plenty of room left for passing motorists.
Rather than tell the group to remove the slide and go back to their homes, the police were happy to see the gathering, and actually decided to join in on the fun. Officers Lee and Jones took turns going down the slide before heading back to their patrol car to continue with the day.
What a good time that must have been, both to slide and to just watch.
