I want my 2 [thousand] dollars

On April 5, Chicagoan Jenny Huynh forced her sister-in-law Kein Tran to open a safe in her home and stole at least $2,000 from her. Afterwards, Huynh allegedly stabbed Tran to death, and then went gambling.

Money quote within the article:
"I know she has a gambling problem, but this really surprises me," said Michelle Duong, manager of Nails Now in Mundelein, who fired [Huynh] last week for doing a poor job as a nail technician.

Future quote that I hope to see:
"I was broke and I needed to go to the boat," said Huynh. "I'm not going to apologize for that. Although I do admit the killing part was totally my bad."

    "...needed to go to the boat."

    What does that mean? Is this some kind of gambling reference that went over my head?

    In the Chicago area, the only casino's we have are on riverboats. When people say 'I'm going to the boat', they're referring to a casino.

    Ooooh, thanks. My bad.

    Once again, our comment section is funnier than the original. Well done.
