Most of the chatter on the police scanner is usually routine chatter, but there was one conversation with an Amarillo College police officer that got a laugh this morning.
A man called the police department upset because he couldn't get into one of the AC buildings. The officer said there was a reason for that. The campus was closed.
The man didn't care. He had a test Thursday morning, and come snow banks or icy roads, he had to take it. The officer said, sorry, the campus was closed.
But he had to take a test. Not today you don't. There's nobody there.
The guy must have studied so hard that at no point did he turn on a television, check out amarillo.com or listen to the radio to know that AC was snowed in.
Hey, there's a silver lining to every whiteout. You got an extra day to study. Maybe a bunch of days if AC is closed on Friday.
