Speaking of coke...  This Irish dude was arrested in Brazil with two pounds of powdah in his belly.  Some people are just nuts

Quote
An Irish man has been arrested in Brazil with almost a kilogram of cocaine hidden in his stomach.  The 20-year-old suspect was detained as he tried to board a flight from Sao Paulo to Brussels.

Police say they became suspicious because he looked nervous.  When questioned, he admitted having swallowed sealed capsules of cocaine.  He was rushed to hospital, where he expelled 72 capsules that contained 830 grams of the drug.

If found guilty, he could face five to 15 years in prison.

It is not pretty.  I have a relative who worked at the Miami airport back in the 90s; she told me a couple of horror stories of people who died with them pellets in their stomach.

I got offered one of these jobs in Suriname back when I was 24 which I turned down.

Can you imagine how people feel when one of those burst when they are smuggling them from where ever .

I used to clean house for a coke dealer in Kent, Ohio, back in the early 80s. (I never liked coke myself, but he paid REALLY well - he mainly paid for my discretion.) He was an utter slob and left tons of coins and even paper money lying around everywhere. The first time I cleaned for him, I left the money on the dining room table (he always left when I came in) but the next time I turned up, he gave it to me and told me I could always keep what I found. This was in addition to being paid $100 each time, and I would normally find around $30 lying around.

One time I was removing used tissues (and money) from the back of the couch (ew, I know, but I wore gloves) and I found a loaded gun with the safety off. Scared the shit out of me. This happened to be one of the few times he returned home before I was finished, so I confronted him about it and asked him to please make sure he didn't leave his gun lying around where I could find it. He thanked me and gave me an additional $100. Made me sorry I told him to not leave it lying around. ;D

Anyway, I lost the job because he died on a flight back from Florida. Cause of death? One of the coke-filled condoms he swallowed burst and he had a heart-attack. RIP Robert. :(  You would have thought that with all the money he had and the way he threw it around, he would have gotten somebody else to do the smuggling. Oh well, he wasn't the sharpest tool in the box by any means.

Wow ... I bet he was a chatty Cathy before he went out . Coke was one of those things that I could do for an evening and then gladly walk away from . It always made me anxious and wanting to take a crap , not a sexy drug for me LOL .

Ann, your story takes THE HELP in a whole different direction. It does.

Those pictures are so garosssss. Ugh.

Basquo, on your pic it does say "making a difference with service." So I guess they do deliver. Sounds good to me.

Good lord, no! He was far from being a chatty Cathy. He was ultra-paranoid, as only a coke addict/dealer can be. That's why he paid me so handsomely for about two hours of work. He had a few cleaners before me, but they all either stole coke from him, or talked "out of school" (to use an old phrase). We had a mutual friend who knew I wasn't interested in coke and could keep a secret, so our mutual friend hooked us up.

Ultimately, it was his paranoia that killed him. He simply didn't trust anyone else to do the smuggling, regardless of the money he could have thrown their way. After his death, our mutual friend told me he'd wanted to use me as a mule (as I had proven myself trustworthy) but my friend said "no fucking way are you putting her in that kind of danger". The gun hidden down the back of the couch was part of the paranoia.

Coke was one of those things that I could do for an evening and then gladly walk away from . It always made me anxious and wanting to take a crap , not a sexy drug for me LOL . 

Same here. I've had "crap" issues long before becoming poz. Ew. Yeah, I know.
