Sorry, Tom...

If I would have read this post first I wouldn't have made a crack about wearing orange on your other new thread tonight...

But, I'm sure orange will look LOVELY on you!

And I am sure Mrs. "Prisoner #74659275" AKA Tom can visit often... we need to take up a collection for the "Get Tom outta jail" Fund or what???!!??!?

If I were you, I'd make sure to show up bright and early at the court clerk's desk to explain why you missed your appearance. I once forgot about a jury summons, and a couple days later I received a VERY strongly worded missive from the court advising me I was going to be charged with contempt of court if I didn't get my butt down there PDQ and explain myself. :eek: You don't want to mess with the legal system, believe me.....they'll mess with you right back, and you'll lose!! :uhoh21:

I hope everything does work out OK. We love your words o' wisdom. I don't think they'd let you have access to from jail. Seriously, if you go down and explain yourself (if you can, we sure can't... ;)), things might work out OK.

Nice song though... :chuckle

"Scrubs" ?!!?

Is THAT what you are telling yourself?!


Denial is a powerful thing!!


When you go to explain yourself...

You might want to skip the part about the nice day...

Had to go golfing...

Just sayin'...

I hear even the worst day golfing is better than the best day in court, Tom. :p
