    Oh, oh, my turn.

    I hope they read the number of years of his sentence to him in binary:

    Judge: Your sentence is 1111.
    Guilty guy: 4 years? Is that it? I can do that no problem.

    I know, I know, day job and all.

    He probably did that to me

    I live in Roxbury and had an iphone stolen out of the mail in 2012. They delivered an empty box with a note saying "sorry for the damage." Thanks a lot, asshole. I hope you enjoy the 5 years.

    AT&T replaced it

    I notified the post office and AT&T (who I bought the phone from). The AT&T rep said it actually happens often, they sent me another one via FedEx this time, overnight, no cost to me. So props to AT&T and thank god I didn't have to deal with claims, fighting with 2 bureaucracies over who is responsible, etc.
