Hey people, we’ve got tons of police reports today – catching up on some weekend stuff – and there’s a DirecTV lesson here for all of us.
This guy’s cable was obviously out, so he had a chick come over and they “sat around” (see, obviously no cable). Next thing he knows, the lady’s gone and his laptop is missing. Oh, the woman’s supposed name?
Don’t get bored and sit around doing nothing with a girl named Mexico Destiny.
On a brighter note, we also learn today that not all golfers are bad.
It seems we have the other half of the story we learned about yesterday, when a golfer broke a woman’s house window on Indian Oaks Drive and refused to pay the damages. Apparently another member of his group offered to make restitution.
Here now are the highlights from Tupelo and Lee County. After you read this, double-check to make sure your cable bill is paid up.
