I save them the trouble. It's all online all they need is my name. I don't give a shit. If someone wants to steal my identity they can have it.

Re: Ever been to jail or prison?

Which controlled substance? Did you actually intend to distribute?

Re: Ever been to jail or prison?

I went to jail when I was around 9 or 10 years old.

Spoiler:
It was a school field trip.

William S. Burroughs said that he didn't trust anyone who had never been to jail. I guess he wouldn't have trusted me.

With all the wild stories you've posted before, I'm sure there is some interesting stuff in this one.

I got busted for underage drinking when I was 14 and was put in the drunk tank for an hour. The cops didn't believe me at first when I told them my mother was in South America.

Re: Ever been to jail or prison?

I was arrested once in Des Plaines, IL, in August of 1993. Some friends and I left a pub to go smoke out in their car in a nearby parking lot. Unmarked cop car pulls up, three undercovers (guns in hand) come pouring out. I'm figuring it's no big deal, we just got a joint or two on us... until two of the guys (whom I never met before) were carrying about an ounce apiece (!).

To their credit, they fessed up to the possession, so I was released after a few hours. The most harrowing part was not being allowed to pee until then!

Are you a sketchy lawyer? I could use one of those.

Maybe it's just the kind of people I know. But I run into a lot of people who have had experience in Tent City. DUI, minor fights, drug possession.

Tent City is like getting school detention.

Telepathic rape is no laughing matter. God is watching you pee.

I've never been to either. Although, I did get questioned by a detective in one of those rooms with a fancy two-way mirror. Not a pleasant time.

Re: Ever been to jail or prison?

drunk tank in college but they let me out at like 7am and gave me a citation, I don't think that's put on your record. It was Halloween too probably the best time ever to be put in the drunk tank almost everyone was costumed in there. Some guy said he was on his fourth DUI.

Half an hour cuffed in the back of a police car when I was a teen, and just shy of an hour in a holding cell when I was in my 20s, but never formally incarcerated.

Yes, but not as a resident. I have customers that are prisons so I'm there all the time.

Is there a lot of demand for hardwood cutting boards in prison?
