In Court the other day, a woman pleaded guilty to the following incident:
She went to the police station and filed a report. In her report she stated that a woman got into her car and forced her to leave the convenience store where she had bought smokes. She was ordered to drive to a school parking lot where the woman whapped her upside the head with some kind of night stick which caused her to pass out for several hours. When she came to, she drove directly to the police station.
This naturally caused an investigator to come and speak with her immediately and durring the course of his conversation with her (before she has even left the police station mind you!) she admits that the real story is that she went over to her boyfriend's house. His girlfriend came home and beat the snot out of her and she had to have something to explain to her husband of 4 days what had hapened to her her face.
Life lesson #5,374: If you're going to lie to the police, which is a bad idea, stick to your story.
Life lesson #5,375: If you've married a guy, dump your boyfriend BEFORE you say, "I do." Especially if he already has a new Girlfriend.
Reminds me of a little poem I read once: I don't know much, but I know this is true, 'tis better to be off with the old love before being on with the new.
