DUI Car Wash

My friend's brother (we'll call him Nemo) made a BIG mistake the other night. He's in his early twenties, has a 2 year old at home that his mom takes care of and still lives at home.

He was driving home from a party after a night of drinking last weekend. While on the road, he thought he closed his eyes just for a second...and then woke up in the canal!

He was arrested and put in jail overnight, where he got the nickname Nemo for "swimming" in the canal.

His punishment? They will send him to Phoenix where he will spend a weekend in jail...the weekend has yet to be determined. He pays a $2000-$3000 fine and will be on probation for the next 2 or 3 years and his license suspended for the next few months.

His vehicle has also been impounded and will take almost another $1000 to get it out, not to mention how much it will cost to fix the damage to it.

When she told me this, I didn't feel sorry for him. He made a stupid, stupid that not only hurts him but hurts a lot of other people in his life and could of potentially hurt many others.

But this isn't what shocked me. Nope.... The following is what did the trick!

His buddies, probably the same ones that were at the party, are holding a car wash to help him pay for this!

I had to laugh! What are the signs going to say? What are they going to tell the establishment when they ask to have their car wash there?

I just don't get it...

Oh holy cow! I am so glad that he is okay!!

Have you thought of posting a "send $5" address for the rest of us to contribute??

Um, because I think he should have to pay every dime! ;-)

It's the symbolism - drying off the wet car :-)
