losing myself in a white trash hell

From my friend Kelly...this was too good not to post:
FOREST PARK -- Clayton County police were investigating after a man
suffered a wound to the neck during what appears to have been a freak
accident involving a bullet, authorities said.

Rescue workers were called shortly before 11:30 a.m. to a strip
shopping center on Ga. 42 just outside the gates of Fort Gillem.

The victim, whose identity was pending, was rushed for medical
treatment to Grady Memorial Hospital. His condition was not
immediately available.

An unidentified woman who was with the man told police that the man
was trying to repair a faulty speaker wire and was using a .22-caliber
bullet to do so.

At some point, the man ended up with a piece of the wire in his neck.

The couple tried to drive to the hospital but experienced problems
with their vehicle, which is what prompted them to stop near the fort
and call 911.
