After Graduation

Start here


One Friday night, we broke into the factory of the employer we were working at (real bright) stole the blank company checks and paymaster printer, and went on a check cashing binge throughout the weekend. Flushed with a successful heist, the only way we’d get busted is if we kept going through Monday after the business reopened…which we did. Rick (who was later killed after getting stabbed in a Detroit drug house and jumping out a window) got busted trying to cash one of the checks. Thinking he would rat us out, I went to Mary Jo and confessed to being strung out on heroin at the ripe old age of 18. Mom was indeed heartbroken but gave my sister the money for a plane ticket to California. The part about having a jones was true, but I may have omitted the part about why it became necessary to “Get Out Of Denver”. That is how I ended up in Synanon.
