The Siezure of $300 from a Pig Woman in Beverly Hills (I wish to be tense)  
This. Actually. Happened.

Scene: Nifra is in her car, and behind her, in the back seat, there is a rabbit in a pet-transport-thing. She is driving happily, toward the vet's, where she will leave said rabbit. And then, she hears a noise: that of a cage unlatching itself. And another noise! That of a rabbit! Jumping!

She turns to see what is going on, and the rabbit sits on the back seat, staring at her.

Nifra: Fuck.

She pulls over to the side of the road promptly, puts on her hazard lights, and turns off the car. The rabbit jumps into the passenger seat. Nifra reaches for it, it jumps into the back again, she overbalances and lunges.

She falls into the footwell in the back seat, her feet up against the window. It is incredibly uncomfortable, and undignified.

Nifra: Fuck.

The rabbit -- hereafter to be referred to as THAT GODAWFUL BEAST (TGB for short) -- jumps within reaching distance. Nifra scrambles up, half onto the seat and half off, and reaches for it.

TGB bites her wrist.

Nifra: *howls at the top of her lungs not unlike a person being eviscerated*

Rabbit: *jumps*

Nifra grabs at the rabbit, with both hands, and finally catches it, however -- naturally -- she looses her balances and falls back into the footwell, clutching TGB to her chest, and casting aspersions on it's entire species, in unprintable language.

Cue knock on the window over her head. Where there is standing a cop.

Rabbit: *bites again*

Nifra: *yelps, biting back howl*

Cop: What are you doing?

Nifra: I was catching the rabbit, officer.

Rememeber that Nifra is still prone in the footwell, with the cop looming over her.

Cop: Are -- are you all right?

Nifra: Well, he bit me, but I think it'll be okay.

Cop: Why -- why were you catching the rabbit?

Nifra: I have to get it to safety.

Cop: Have you been drinking?

Nifra: Not yet, no.

Cop: Uh-huh. Get out of the car, please.

Nifra: I -- would really love to, officer, but I'm going to need your help with the rabbit.

Cop: Why exactly are you traveling with an unsecured rabbit?

Nifra: He isn't unsecured!

Cop: Out of the car please, ma'am.

....anyway. I convinced the man I wasn't drunk, got the rabbit back into the cage, and realized this is was all very very funny. My wrist is all red and puffy from the bites.

I loathe rodentae.

Ha! That story really is funny; if it hadn't happened to you, you'd be howling. :D

Oh. That's. Um. Very very very amusing. But I hope your wrist is okay. :)

Well, they do say that "no good deed goes unpunished".

Still good luck to you and TGB.

...at the risk of having said rabidish rabbit unleashed in my general direction: was it your rabbit that you were conveying, or was some kind soul paying you for this?
when she smiles it's like a revelation: Snugfox1013 on August 12th, 2004 01:12 pm (UTC)
Just so you know, I'm laughing with you.

I guess I should consider myself lucky that my rabbit yesterday was just an itty bitty baby. Heh heh heh!

Not a vicious plot bunny with teeth!

And just what were you doing with a bunny anyway?
pure FORESHADOWINGnifra_idril on August 18th, 2004 12:34 pm (UTC)
*laughs* Getting it to safety of course!

But, yeah, it's not mine. I was taking it for my brother. Who owes me huge now.
Hammyangryhamster on August 12th, 2004 01:19 pm (UTC)
dude, that is about the most entertaining story i've heard in some time.

i can only imagine what it would be like to hear the cop's end of things...

Do you need to get the rabbit tested for rabies?
pure FORESHADOWINGnifra_idril on August 18th, 2004 12:40 pm (UTC)
No, I think getting it exorcized would really be enough ....*eyes it, anxiously*

The cost of gas per gallon to drive to the vet: $2.25
The cost of a trip to the vet: $150-$300
The cost of rabbit food for TGB: $0.99 per lb of carrots.
The cost of a reading abotu Nifra's day? Priceless.

*giggle* Poor bunny,is he/she okay ? Poor you too. How's the wrist ?
pure FORESHADOWINGnifra_idril on August 18th, 2004 12:36 pm (UTC)
The wrist will live.

The rabbit may not. *eyes hutch and makes plans for dinner*

Thanks for sharing, it was a good laugh.

Thou the cop's have you been drinking and step out of the car got me thinking, how quickly a normal situation becomes unusual. Why would catching a rabbit in you own car be any indication that you've been drinking?
Anyways, hope your wrists are feeling better.
Astrea: Oh Clark!? held in grin by Sandramastrea9562 on August 13th, 2004 03:02 am (UTC)
I shouldn't be laughing this hard, should I?
But you tell it so damn funny!


How you finally convinced the cop is what I want to know.

And after that description? I don't particularly get that you're into rabbits as pets, so whose is it?

I hope your hand feels better!

Re: I shouldn't be laughing this hard, should I?
I hate the rabbit. I hate it with the passion of a thousand fiery suns. I would never own such a thing if my life depended on it. It's my brother's, curse him. *shakes fist*
