"LOCK THEM UP!"

Hopefully, you have never had to experience a night (or more) in a county jail here in Washington state. Being in jail is no laughing matter and of course, jails and prisons are not created nor intended to be a “fun” experience. The point of a county jail is, of course, to provide the most minimal of basic necessities for those who have been arrested for committing any alleged crime(s). Going to jail is a horrible experience, especially if you feel that you have been unfairly arrested. Sometimes the best way to get through grief is through humor.

“I demand a full refund, or the money I had before I was checked in, that I suspect my driver (officer) or your attendants (guard) took. Thx. One star.”

Henry probably would have given more stars in his Yelp review, except for the lack of snacks and recreational options he has apparently experienced at other county jails.

“"This one is the worst ever. No field to play or work out, no vending machine. Nothing."

While Nam had the most negative things to say in his 1-Star review of the King County Jail, he appreciates coming away from jail with some new life skills, plus he apparently made some new friends.

“I will say this. I thought YouTube was the only place I could learn life hacks…Jailmates are the best TV Guide and these guys know how to pick up signals on the ol’ boob tube like a pro."
