Today I learned of a great charge still on the Boston books. The crime it refers to is still a valid crime when it comes to one entrusted with serving victuals, but in the time-honored tradition of Not Changing Much, it retains an arcane-sounding name that makes me smile. This here's the coda to a story that involved two people who tried paying for their food with a stolen credit card:
Both will be charged with Receiving a Stolen Credit Card, Fraudulent Use of a Credit Card for the purpose of Committing a Larceny, Defrauding the Inn Keeper, and Resisting Arrest.Don't ever piss off the innkeeper, guys. I'm just saying, is all. And I can't come up with a good "critical fail" joke before bedtime.
