Find La Perla With ILE At Trees, Chime In About Dallas’ Cultural Future And Enjoy Special Darkness With Pinkish Black At Main At South Side.

Next time, you break the law and go to court, remind yourself that you can avoid all that silliness by just obeying the law.

Because instead of cruel and unusual punishment, you might end up with unusual and hilarious punishment like the guy who had to write 144 compliment letters to your ex-girlfriend.

How did it happen? Well, Daren Young, of Kahului, Hawaii, was ordered not to contact his ex-girlfriend back in February of this year. Of course, like most creeps, he couldn’t resist hitting her her and paid the ultimate price. He got arrested, fined $2,400 in fines, ordered to complete 200 hours of community service and put on two years of probation. That sounds like a fair and usual deal. But wait, that wasn’t enough of a punishment.

But Judge Rhonda Loo knew that fines weren’t enough. She wanted to make sure that Young really learned his lesson and thus came the order to write all those notes.

So yeah, the lesson here is don’t be a creep. No means no and that’s all there is to it, fellas. Below you’ll find a cool list of things going on tonight, and whatever you do, if you meet a nice girl tonight, guys (as in men), don’t be a creep. — Juan Betancourt
