A True Story

This is a true story, no matter how unbelievable it sounds.

Someone my neighbor from back in Stow knows a girl who was housesitting for some friends when their dog died. She calls up the owners and tells them, and they ask her to please just take the dog to the vet, which she agrees to do. Unfortunately, the dog is a Newfoundland, and it weighs over 100 pounds. She calls up her boyfriend to ask for help, since she can't lift it. He can't go to the subway with her, so he suggests they put it in some rolling luggage, which they do. At the subway, she has to get the thing up some stairs, and she's having trouble. A nice guy stops and helps her lug the bag up the steps, asking what she has that's so heavy. Not wanting to sound like a freak who carries dead dogs around, she says, "Computer equipment." At the top of the stairs, the previously nice guy, punches her in the stomach, grabs the bag, and runs off with it. Needless to say, he was in for a surprise when he opened the bag.

As unbelievable as this sounds, it's been verified as true by a very reliable source. Plus, it's not like you could make this up.

I dunno. I know some pretty amazing things that were made up.

Nevertheless, I believe this.

Just out of curiousity, who's the credible source?
