Considering his utter and complete idiocy, the above picture of Ralph Wiggum will be Diego’s avatar from here on out. He is quite literally the dumbest person I have ever met.
So yesterday Diego was called downtown by the ADA for one of his court cases. Why anyone would want this dullard to testify in open court is beyond me, but I digress. He left the building at 10:15am – we have to log that – and headed to the Criminal Justice Center. As he walked out, I said, “See ya tomorrow” which I always say when someone leaves the building.
Then I forgot about him, because he is very forgettable, and honestly, the division runs much more smoothly when he’s not around.
At around 1:30pm, Diego called in to the supervisor, saying he just left court. Normally, we’re expected to come back, unless there’s less than an hour in the tour. Dummy called too soon, so the supervisor had to tell him to come back…
This vexed Diego, so he tried to stall. There was a lot of back and forth on the phone, but after a few frustrating minutes, the supervisor finally said, “Diego where are you right now?”
There was a long pause, and Diego finally replied, “I’m in my truck.” (As if that was what the supervisor was asking.) The supervisor put Diego on hold and started laughing. The laughter went on for a few minutes until I finally said, “What did he say?” The supervisor said, “I’m in my truck,” then started giggling again. The supervisor regained his composure and again told Diego to get back to work, and get there quickly, which was fortuitous because apparently Diego was only three blocks from the division!
The supervisor hung up on Diego while he was still yammering and said, “He’ll be back soon. He said he just clocked out from court.”
Every police officer in the city has access to the court system. When you log in you can see when someone clocked into court and when they logged out. Because I know Diego, I decided to check his logout time…
The system has him clocking out at 11:59am, a full hour and a half before he called the supervisor. Now because I’m an a-hole, I may have let the supervisor know when Diego clocked out, then suggested maybe an explanation was in order. Like, you know, what the f**k were you doing for an hour and a half?
The answer was likely… eating.
Look, everyone tries to work the system when it’s beneficial to do so. If Diego called in at 2pm, he would have likely been told to go home. The problem is Diego is a halfwit, a lousy liar, and now someone who cannot be trusted. Way to go, Diego! You made an ass of yourself yet again.
Only 1,375 days until I’m out.
