Cops Love Doughnuts

You know it's true. There's a reason behind all those jokes you hear. I had one incident occur that drove home to me just how true the love affair between cops & their doughnuts is.

It was about 10 years ago... maybe more... I was working the closing shift at Fargo's and a friend of mine, Kym, was my late girl. She stayed to help me get everything done and afterwards we went to Dunkin Donuts for, what else, doughnuts. We went to one on Colorado Avenue about 20-30 minutes away from Fargo's. We got our treats and headed back to Fargo's parking lot to eat, listen to music & talk.

We had been sitting in the parking lot for about 15 minutes when suddenly the alarm inside the pizza place went off. For some dumb reason, Kym decided that if someone was breaking in, she wanted to catch them or get a look at him so we could make an I.D. So off she went, driving around the building but we didn't see anyone. Just as she pulled back into her parking space by my car, the cops showed up. They had seen he driving around the building so they immediately came up to us, asking what we were doing.

Kym explained that we worked there, had just gotten off & went to Dunkin Donuts. I showed him the bag. His eyes lit up and a wide grin spread across his face at the mention of donuts. "Oh, the one over here on Bijou & Circle?"

There was a Dunkin Donuts on Bijou & Circle?? For those of you not from The Springs, Fargo's is on Platte, pretty close to Circle. Bijou is only 1 street down. We honestly didn't know that but we said "yes" anyway. We didn't want to look stupid & tell this guy we went all the way to Colorado Ave for doughnuts when there was one 5 minutes away!

It turned out that no one was trying to break in, there was a short in the alarm. We didn't get busted but I think we have the doughnuts to thank for that one!! If we hadn't eaten them all, we would have offered one to the cop, made his night! :) But, when I think about it, who would know better than a cop where all the doughnut stores were?
