“…you should make a citizens arrest and call the police…”
As entertaining to imagine as this might be, it is
the most highly inadvisable course of action imaginable.
Apparently, using the word “ridiculous” to describe something which is patently well, you know, ummm, how do I say this, ridiculous, is offensive so it can’t be described as “ridiculous” (whispers - even though it patently is.)
Can you just imagine screeching into the mundane, 80s built housing estate, semi shoe box, 2 up 2 down, buy to let cul de sac in a Starsky & Hutch lightening strike emblazoned hot hatch, kicking the door down and body slamming the clerk to the ground in a half Nelson….
I’ve had some of my best dreams with less appealing scenarios but regardless of how desirable the scenario, it would likely end up with the ‘arrester’ rather than the ‘arrestee’ doing bird.
Please don’t turn fantasy into reality - it could only ever end badly….
