If you are on Twitter regularly, you’ve no doubt already seen this. It was posted last night and already went viral at light speed.

While taking the whole thing with a grain of salt as the writer is also a reality TV show producer, the story line is at least plausible. Either he had a HECK of a night, or he is a really good story teller.

Without giving too much away, the crux is that his mileage run to Cabo in Mexico results in a bar scam trying to charge him $500 for two drinks and then him getting arrested because the police are in on the scam.

Either way, you need to read it start to finish – but also priceless is American’s response to it all…

What do you make of this?
