And finally… nice to be nice

A man who sent 144 “nasty” text messages to his ex-girlfriend has been ordered to write her 144 compliments.

Judge Rhonda Loo ordered Darren Young, 30, to write a “nice thing” for every “nasty thing” he said after he pleaded no contest to violating his former girlfriend’s protection order, the Maui News reports.

The Hawaiian man was also fined $2,400 and given 200 hours’ community service.
