When you were a kid, did you ever try to fix a mistake and then only end up making it worse? The milk has already spilled out of the carton, and you try to get it back in, only to spread it all over the floor.

A pair of inmates at the Choctaw County jail in Hugo escaped to make a visit to their girlfriends to smoke marijuana, but they were only gone for less than two hours.

According to a Facebook post from Choctaw Sheriff Terry Park, trustees Rakeem Lennox and Harley Davidson (yes, his name really is Harley Davidson) used their good status to pick up a key to the laundry room and abscond on a Cheech and Chong-style adventure around 10:30 p.m.

“(They) weren’t quite trusties [sic] to be trusted,” Park told The Oklahoman.

Lennox and Davidson walked back to the jail just after midnight and will be facing additional charges for their escape. The men were originally in jail for drug possession, which goes to show that they didn’t learn from their time in prison.

Maybe they thought that if they came back on their own accord, all would be forgiven. We guess they weren’t exactly thinking with a clear mind, but that logic is a stretch.
