Today, while driving to work, I got a panic'ed call from my ex.

To make an annoying story short, a friend of hers had borrowed her car today. This friend was in a minor accident. And lied to the cop, claiming to be my ex. And it turned out that my ex's license was suspended. Because of a ticket. That her friend had got, and had claimed to be my ex for it. And the friend's license was suspended too.

So I drove down to Aubern, picked up my my ex, and then to the county jail, but the friend was still in booking, not visitable. So we figured out where her car was, and went to the impound lot, in Redmond. All this time, she's getting phone calls from insurance companies, and has nothing useful to tell them.

It turns out that the car was only minorly damaged, now has no working headlights or turnsignals, so daylight operation only. I spotted her the money to get the car out, but refused to pay a cent to bail her friend. (This person already owes me more than I care to account, and should just write off.)

I hope this friend becomes a former one over this. At the very least, she's about to become an ex-roommate over it.


I do have friends I would bail out of jail. But not after they tried to steal my identity.

(Update: They let the friend out on her own recog. Pity. I think a couple of weeks of wearing an orange jumpsuit would have been a good start...)
