This is just another one of my failed submissions to fark.
TL;DR version: shut up and pay me.
Alternate version: delivery charges indicate that you shouldn't get delivery.
funny I said that very thing out loud to my coworker today.....
It's so hard to be me!!!
Like warm bags of sand.....
Do you actually mean that real breasts are not rock-hard, glistening, throat-high jugs? Huh! I feel cheated. Now you are going to tell that the tans are fake.
"rub one out" Oh,I get it.
Good grief! Perhaps the nasty note recipient has exculpatory details of his/her driving.
But leave the flowers and the fresh new greenery. Oh,and that "never come back" means 'see you same time next year'; we'll be waiting with open arms and hands full of antihistamines. Thank you.
Good luck with that insurance...silicone underwriting?
The storey sounds contrived from the getgo!
Just to add some facts because I personally know this story thats being told... The jail infact screwed up so bad that time had been served and money had to be refunded which could have all been avoided! OH and also make note that when this person went to jail he was infact in court trying to pay his tickets! He didn't have every last penny because charges were brought up that he had like was stated before already served time for! I think it all depends on work ethic I'm not say that all cops are strait up assholes that don't care about anyone or anything just a fat head and a pay check, but seems to me had someone really sat down took the time to care and paid attention to what they were doing and their job this could have been avoided. And I say someone but there were litterally dozens of them that choose not to do this! Also the person that wrote this letter was not the person in jail. Nor am I.. just throwing a few facts in!
and of course, judging by the letter, our friend was obviously showing a good attitude and minding his manners, when dealing with authority figures, huh?
avande1882 and mat cat, you're both missing a huge point here...it's the job of the police to execute warrants and place people behind bars, it's not their job to decide when people get released...
It's not the police but the court/clerk who messed up. the paperwork generated by the court is what got the perp imprisioned and it's the paperwork generated by the court that gets the perp released.
It's not the job of the police, or prision guards to get the perp released, they're just watch dogs at that point.
True, they should have paid the tickets. Then this wouldnt be an issue. Yeah, we get that. In the present, the now, that "woulda coulda shoulda" theory still doesnt justify ill treatment of another, and it certainly doesn't fix a damn thing. How is wagging your finger in someones face saying "you shoulda done this and you shoulda done that, then none of this would have happened to you" gonna help any situation? Who wants to be told that when they are reaching out for assistance to do the right thing from the only people that can assist them? All you can do is hope that the person, or anyone for that matter, learns from their mistakes. If they do, fantastic; another lesson learned in life! If they dont, their loss; big time.
This person went to jail for evading their responsibilities as a driver in this state. Deserved consequences for their actions. Now they are trying to do the right thing and pay the $, but instead get jerked around by the state, and thats ok because "we know the systems screwed up" and they "shoulda" paid their tickets in the first place? I don't think anyone would be singin this song if it was them or their child in this situation.
Ok...I totally understand that this person got screwed over...but let's be real...if they had paid the damn ticket he or she wouldn’t had to experience this...is it right or fair the way they got treated…no…but was it ok not to pay your tickets…no…I hope a lesson has been learned. People don’t realize that they are consequeneces for their actions. Yes…the systems maybe screwed up but it has always been screwed up way before us and will be screwed up after us…they were treated unfairly…but if they had handle his or her business in the first place they wouldn’t be bitching about how wrong the system is…again…we already know the systems is screwed up!!!!
Leave the girl alone !! If you dont have anything nice to say, dont say anything.
@mat catastrophe...I totally agree. Yes, people screw up and they dont pay tickets. Good grief, the majority does. When you dont pay for a long time, you go to jail. This story doesn't lay blame on law enforcement for doing their job by putting them in jail for not paying tickets. Nor is it a bitch session about just being in jail. Its a story on how they didn't do their job, and at a costly expense to another; financially and otherwise. Your in there and the next step is to try and to figure out what needs to be done to pay your dues to the government and move on. It taking almost an entire month to realize that paperwork is messed up while your sitting in jail waiting for them to correct it is not right. Being told the amount you owe is different every time you ask, is not right. That goes for anything we put money towards, whether its a ticket or groceries. "Growing up" has nothing to do with this. Is taking the rap for someone else's screw up and slackness make you "grown up"? That seems to be a typical response lately to injustice..."grow up". Regardless of the scale, injustice is what it is. No one, including those who somehow think "growing up" cures all ills, deserves to be dragged through the system like this when your trying to do the right thing after screwing up. And last time I checked, we all screw up sometimes.
@Cherly67...read the story again...it doesn't say anything about taxes!
