Idiot of the Week VII

It's that time of the week again. I know I said I wouldn't post again unless my last post had 6 comments, but I got close enough, and I really don't like passing up this article.

First on our list we have the Israeli people. Not much I have to put on this one. Just that they are suing their government for laser cannons. Man... why isn't MY government providing ME with laser cannons?

Next on the list, we have several merchants that I have had contact with in California. These merchants called in all confused about getting into trouble for these gift cards that they took from cardholders. I mean, the cardboard credit cards are good, right? Okay people, let me clear this up right now. THERE ARE NO SUCH THING AS CARDBOARD CREDIT CARDS! Really. I do wonder how any of these people stay in business at all.

And finally this week, our winner, coming to us from Springdale, U.S.A., Jarrod Hankins. He's a bailiff for the Washington County court district. And what did our good bailiff do to attract my attention? Well, picture this. You are a defendant in a case of selling pirated CDs. You're pleading innocent. The judge dictates to put you into custody for violating the conditions of your bail. So the bailff takes you away. Having no other place to hold you until he can clean up a cell, he places you in an 8 and a half foot by 9 and a half foot room. Solitary. And then he leaves. He leaves and forgets you there for four days. Alone. No food, no water, no bed. Yeah... it's one thing when your stupidity hurts yourself. It's another when it hurts someone else. Way to go Jarrod. You are this weeks idiot of the week!

Plaintiff=person lodging complaint. Defendant=person accused. Dame dude. You've known me for how long and you don't know that? ;) Indeed, that bailiff is outlandishly, terrifyingly stupid. >_<
