Okay, I make fun of California all the time for its whack-jobs. I feel obliged to note the types of citizen winners that live in my locale. Technically, not my locale, but when I saw the quick summary, I was convinced it probably happened just up the street.
Ryan Bensen, 40, and Erica Manley, 37, were chowing down with friends at the Twisted Fish Steakhouse in Seaside, a coastal town some 100km northwest of Portland.
Evidently a bit light in the wallet department, the pair first offered a gift card as payment for their victuals, then handed their waitress “an envelope with a question mark scribbled on it” by way of a tip.
Said envelope contained crystal meth. They hung around long enough to be arrested in place, and then the police discovered a lab in their hotel room. Maybe Breaking Bad was just a little too popular.
At least the article didn’t mention anything about having to take their kids into protective custody.
