LOCKDOWN BLUES, AS SUSSEX MAN TURNS SELF IN TO POLICE TO ESCAPE ROOMMATES
Living with people can be hard. Family, friends, and roommates. Sure, sometimes your roommates are your family or friends. But if they’re bad roommates, they are bad roommates. We all know how this works. And we all have our own stories. I had one roommate sleeping more than 60 feet away, thru two walls. But his deviated septum didn’t care, and I never slept. That didn’t last long, believe me. But one man in Sussex, England hated his roommates more than I even needed sleep. He was wanted by police. But he hated his roommates to much, he turned himself in!
SUSSEX MAN FAILED TO RETURN TO PRISON, UNTIL ROOMMATES FROM HELL DROVE HIM BACK
Just think about that one. And I thought I was desperate! Police had a warrant to arrest the man because of a “recall to prison.” It seems weird to me, but that means he got a release for a temporary parole or something and had to report back to finish his sentence. But this man didn’t do that. Instead, he stayed out and about. Well, until Covid forced him to shack up with people he couldn’t’ stand. So far, we don’t know how long he lived with these people, nor his or their names. But the man turned himself in at the Burgess Hill Police Station in Sussex, England to get away from them.
LOCAL SUSSEX COP TWEETS THAT MAN WAS DESPERATE FOR SOME PEACE AND QUIET
And here I thought that freedom was just another word for nothing left to lose! But I would have loved to see the expression on the faces of these police in Sussex, let me tell you. A man walks in and turns himself in. Then, he explains to you that he’d rather go back to prison than spend one more second of time with his roommates. Bang. Mouth drop from mic drop. One police inspector on the case, Darren Taylor, tweeted that the poor chap was desperate for a little peace and quiet.
