Overheard while waiting in line at Doughtery's Pharmacy today: Guy talking to the stranger next to him (loudly enough to be heard 8 feet away) about nothing special. Then he happens to mention the irritating electronic ankle bracelet he is wearing due to his DUI arrest. Apparently it detects alcohol intake. He also has a device in his car that monitors him. The electronic devices communicate with each other to prevent him from driving when he has consumed alcohol. Bummer for him. Good for the rest of us.
