A Butter Knifing, Some Unjaded Youth, and a Hemlock Cut Down for a Christmas Tree

Posted by and on Thu, Dec 13, 2012 at 2:59 PM

West Seattle High Schoolers, Surprisingly, Not Assholes: An 80-year-old lady's car stalled in the middle of an intersection on Tuesday, reports the West Seattle Blog, and a group of 10 high schoolers ran out of Jack in the Box to help her push her car. Meanwhile a bunch of adults sat in their cars honking their horns like big fucking jerks.

That's The Christmas Spirit! Not really. The bloggers over at Phinneywood talked to a couple who claim their 10-foot Mt Hood Hemlock was cut down in the middle of the night, probably, they venture, for someone's Christmas tree.

(Butter) Knifing On Broadway? Capitol Hill Seattle reports that a man wielding a butter knife was taken into custody last night outside the Walgreens on Broadway for allegedly slashing a man in the face.

Fatal Apartment Blaze: One man was found dead inside of a burning Crown Hill apartment Tuesday evening, according to the My Ballard blog. The Seattle Fire Department's Kyle Moore says that firefighters found the man deceased on a hide-a-bed when they arrived to extinguish the single-room blaze. It remains unclear how the fire started.

Robbed: The Magnolia Voice blog reports that a Bank of America in Magnolia was held up by a suspect in classic bank-robber garb Tuesday morning. Police still haven't nabbed the suspect, described as between 5'2" and 5'5", dressed in a black hoodie and sunglasses.

So disappointed! I was hoping to see the robber in a striped shirt and bandit mask.

Wait, there are teenagers that aren't hateful, jaded, douchebags?

But, the internet tells me exactly the opposite!

Someone stole my Christmas tree out the back gate of Fred Meyer between having it wrapped up and paying for it.

Pretty fucked up but Freddies gave us another.

And getting slashed with a butter knife...fucking ouch.

I for one would be proud to finally let West Seattle become part of Seattle.
