You can’t make this stuff up!

His last name was Porch, and he died on his front porch?!?!

About 30 years ago, I was on my way home one evening a few days before Halloween and saw what I thought was a dummy laying beside the road. Then I said to myself “That looks too good to be a dummy”, and it was. It was a woman, about 22 who was dead drunk but not dead. She did die a few years later from drinking. The girl had a problem for sure.

A few weeks ago, a young guy living in the apartment building next to mine, went out on his deck, sat down in a chair and blew his brains out. My neighbor downstairs was home at the time and heard a loud bang but didn’t know what it was; thought it might have be a car backfire or someone throwing something heavy into the dumpster…The guy was sitting slumped over in his chair on his deck for several hours until someone finally noticed him, saw he wasn’t moving, that he didn’t look right, and called the police.

I think some the people I work with are dead...at least from the shoulders up.

A childhood pal became a desperate alcoholic, and committed suicide by train one night, laying down on the tracks, the last week of October. The engineer radioed in that someone had placed a dummy on the tracks. It wasn’t until the next train went by in daylight that they realized it was poor Mike.
