Welcome to the Real World, Lindsay Lohan!
Lindsay Lohan may have been the only person in the free world who was surprised a judge finally had enough of her nonsense and is putting her in the slammer. Sporting a "Fuck U" on the middle finger of her manicure Lindsay plead for her freedom. Fat chance, sweetheart. Perhaps 90 days in jail and a stint in rehab will clear Lindsay's brain of the toxins she has been ingesting for the past few years. Once the fog of drugs and alcohol lift maybe she'll get a clue. Probably not, but I hate to see a young person toss away their life so carelessly.
It will be interesting to see what legal maneuvers her attorneys will attempt as they consider making a "Hail Mary" pass to keep Lindsay's butt out of jail. Good-luck with that. It IS California where stardust can sometimes cloud the viewpoint of a blind Lady Justice (Mixed metaphors, anyone?). Something gives me the feeling that Lindsay is going to the slammer. If a regular person pulled Lindsay's nonsense, do you seriously thing the judge would give a crap as to their work schedule? The boo-hoo-hooing yesterday seemed sincere, as Lindsay is probably not wanting to have any of her 24kt gold-plated body cavities searched by a woman who probably isn't her type. I would like to be on the committee that welcomes Lindsay to the real world that the pack of ENABLERS surrounding her have so carefully shielded her.
You see, Lindsay, your behavior annoys us because the rest of us have to do things like drive sober and show-up to work on time. We may feel a little sorry for you because NOBODY in your circle seemed willing to discipline your spoiled, rich behind and it has left you with a dangerous sense of entitlement. Some us regular people may be a little jealous because when we get caught doing what you have been doing we would have ruined a big chunk of our lives. Every single time we applied for a job, we'd have to fill in the little box that ask whether or not we had been arrested, and we would have some explaining to do after we checked that box. Nobody in the legal system would particularly care if we kept our lost our jobs because that is kinda' part of the punishment, darlin'. My husband is an Army officer if he got caught doing what you did, he would lose his commission and his career in the military would be over. AND get to go to jail. Do not pass "Go". Do not collect $200. So we are a little frustrated when you show-up late for jobs the rest of us would consider a privilege. A lot of people can't even find jobs in the current economy, so your snotty behavior towards your employers and the court system is pretty annoying. It is disrespectful to all of us. Any empathy people have for you is because of your youth and because your judgment may have been seriously impaired by drug and alcohol abuse. We also empathize because it seems the people you have surrounded yourself with do not have your best interests at heart.
So far Judge Marsha Revel is the only adult who has stood-up to your shenanigans by sentencing you to 90 days in the slammer. It is a good start. I hope you go. I hope you remove the "Fuck U" from your fingernail and stop behaving like a spoiled shit before you kill yourself, or take-out a carload of innocent people. Welcome to the real world!
