    I finally took a call with someone wearing tinfoil on their head.

    You hear about it.

    You joke about it.

    But one day there it is.

    It took everything I had not to laugh out loud.

    Was he part of the entourage following the fat bathrobe wearing homeless activist who lives on a trust fund and owns a home in one of the more expensive areas of the county?

    I actually had to deal with him twice in two days. First he was being a dick to his mom. He is in his 20s. Then today he was putting his pot plants out in the sun and smoking weed. In the middle of an apartment complex. He keeps his hoodie on but you can see it peeking out from underneath and when you ask him about it he tells you it helps his electrical conductivity.

    Not crazy enough for the rubber room and he has his weed card. I have no idea why a doc would think it is a good idea for a bipolar to self medicate with weed. This will not end well.

    When the time comes, tell him the antennas on your car are for the force field to protect anyone who is inside the car from voices.

    Works everytime!

    Did he have a microchip in his tooth that transmits his thoughts to aliens? Because if he did, I have his long-lost sister hanging around my jurisdiction.

    Nuttier than a fruitcake.

    About a year before I retired I was doing a "park and walk" with a rookie along a street that has businesses on one side and the PJs on the other. This guy in his late 30's approaches us and starts to tell us how he loves the police and likes to see us. We are talking about 5 minutes about sports and such and he pauses and says he is carrying a pack of cigarettes in his shirt pocket and the cigs were talking to him telling him to kill his family with a machete. The rooks eyeballs almost pop out of their sockets. I ask him if he did it already and he says maybe he can't remember! I pat him down and tell him he will be more comfortable in the the back of our car when we check on them. We get another sector to go to the apartment for a welfare check. They are ok, and the mother says he has been having this problem with the cigs talking to him so he switched brands an it did not help! The mother asks if the pesticides they spray on the tobacco plants can cause this, HELLO your son is an EDP anyway he was admitted for a psych evaluation. One of the few people that was pleasant to us in that area was a whacko.:whistling:

    :rofl: Thats why this job is so much fun.... You really can't make this stuff up! I had a guy wearing a metal mixing bowl over his head once.... The sad thing is he had a legit reason for it. He was actually protecting his head from the hard objects his crack head girlfriend was throwing at him / hitting him with. Yet to come across a tinfoil crazy yet....

    I've gotten the these are not my pants or it's not my coat line several times.... Somehow it seems like everyone that has a rock in their pockets ends up with someone elses pants on. I guess stange things happen at crack houses.... They have to practice for prison some how.

    I had one not too long ago where a petite, older Asian woman had tin foiled most of a wall in her apartment.

    The neighbors were shooting "beams" through the wall and invading her brain, or something to that effect.

    Which was all good with me until I saw she had duct taped and plastic wrapped all of the smoke detectors and HVAC vents. Had she started a fire, her neighbors would be at the mercy of whatever firewalls the contractor had installed. IIRC, there were even sprinkler system outlets/nozzles that she had covered up.

    So I had to let the complex's manager know. Not sure what ever became of it but I haven't had a call back there since. Maybe off to the funny farm.

    What's scary is that any one of us is only a few misplaced neurons away from becoming one of those folks! But until then, we'll deal with them as best we can, and joke when appropriate.

    Maybe he has "anxiety." Seems to be the standard answer.:supergrin:
