The old saying 'It's cheaper to keep her' doesn't apply to this guy. He just couldn't leave well enough alone, and this is what happened.A judge in Hawaii has sentenced a man who violated his ex-girlfriend's protection order to write 144 compliments about her.

The order comes as a response to 144 "nasty" text messages and calls he allegedly sent to her.

Judge Rhonda Loo told Young

he can't repeat any words when writing a "nice thing" for every "nasty thing" he sent to his ex.

He had already received time served by spending 157 days in jail before sentencing. Subsequently, he was sentenced to the compliments, two years of probation, $2,400 in fines and 200 hours of community service.

All that time in jail and a fine and community service? This guy needs to learn that there is more than one fish in the ocean.
