Good news, bad news

The good news: Best Buy said there'd be no installation charge for Mike Bolesta's son's new car stereo.

The bad news: They lied, the installation fee was $114

The good news: Mike would pay them in 57 new $2 bills, just to tick them off.

The bad news: The idiots at Best Buy thought the bills were fake and called the police.

Even more bad news: The idiocy was not limited to the Best Buy flunkies -- the police thought the bills were counterfeit, too, and arrested Mike. [image of Barney Fife, eyes rolling, chest stuck out, yelling “All right people, move along, just arrestin’ a dangruss criminal”]

The Good news: After being handcuffed to a pole at the county lockup for three hours a representative of the US Secret Service arrive to assure the Baltimore County sheriff's department that the bills were legal tender.

Even better news: Lawsuit -- Cha-Ching!

I love a happy ending.
