@OmSigDAVID,
Maybe you should be asking Linky. My suspicion is they found a bus; it had the keys in the ignition, and off they went.

I'm not sure I want to face Linkat after she reads all this.

(another thing I like about you)
Like a stagecoach robbery
or a train robbery ?? Like Jesse James ?


More like joy ride. I think I am safe now though - the statue of limitations must be over. I mean what bus driver leaves the motor running with the keys in it while waiting for a group of college kids to board?

Ah, no. I meant they stole the bus. Jesse just took the money.


Actually it was more like borrowed. We simply did not want to wait any longer so I encouraged one of the boys to simply take off. And he went in the drivers seat and complied. When we close to our campus, we simply pulled over and put the bus in park and we all ran for the hills.

The retrieved the bus later with no damage. So it was just borrowed without asking.

@Linkat,
The statute of limitations kicks in after admission of guilt. Hand yourself in to ensure a lesser sentence.

Pretty much - it was a dumb college prank. We were out on an event during our senior week. As college seniors are expected to over indulge during many of these events, buses are provided to bring us to the event and return us safely to campus.

At one such event, we left the place and went to the line of buses. We went into the first bus. The engine was running with the keys in the ignition. One boy went up to change the radio station. I yell up to him, come lets just go I don't want to wait. So he went into the drivers seat and drove off.

I think I was more a victim or was kidnapped -- I honestly don't know how they couldn't catch us.

@lmur,
I looked it up

•The time period begins to run on the date your claim arises or "accrues," like the day of the car accident, or when a crime is committed, and
•Once the statute of limitations has expired or "run," you can't file a lawsuit (or be prosecuted for a crime)

Robbery, 10 years
Mass. Gen. Laws ch. 277, § 63



Theft, 6 years
Mass. Gen. Laws ch. 277, § 63


Not sure if it is considered robbery or theft, but in either case I am safe now.

Yes.

Robbery consists of force unlawfully applied to a person
to steal his property. U were innocent of that. It was a theft,
presumably grand larceny.

@OmSigDAVID,
But I didn't actually steal the bus --- I simply was on the bus as a passenger when some one else stole it -- or temporarily borrowed it.

@chai2,
there must be something about not-tall women and minor crimes

this morning I realized there was something no one on A2k knows about me.

About 35 years ago I co-ordinated the temporary borrowing of a pitcher of beer, 4 glasses, 4 pub chairs and a pub table. We paid for the beer.

After a couple of pitchers of beer I convinced my friends that we could take our table and chairs with us when we left the pub. The pub staff was used to us going in and out frequently to smoke, so they somehow didn't catch on when we first left with a full glass of beer each, then we each carried out a chair, then 1 of us took the pitcher of beer while 2 others carried out the table and the 4th person started the truck. We drove off, fully loaded and fully loaded.

We brought everything back the next weekend and were greeted with great merriment.

I don't think it works like that anymore.

@ehBeth,
There's larceny in our souls ehBeth, and we're on the road to perdition.


Ok, here's a secret, not of something I've actually done, but something I've fantasized about since reading Oliver Twist.

I've always dreamt of being a pickpocket.

I think my ability to wear hats well counters the larceny in my soul.

A2K may not know this.

@ehBeth,
I think short people - especially of the female type - get away from it because they are cute and seem more innocent than the taller variety.

@anonymously99,
Yeah I know that one - have it on coin I keep at my desk at work.

When I have a bad day and am swearing and stuff like that - I can look at that coin and say phew -- for all the bad I do, I am forgiven.

It also puts this stuff you get worked up about in perspective.
