Temper, temper

Here is why excessive booze, non-functioning lawn mowers and guns don't mix.

A Milwaukee, Wisconsin, man has been arrested after shooting his lawn mower with a sawed off shotgun after it wouldn't start.

He said it was his yard and his lawn mower and he should be able to do whatever he wants.

A woman who lives with him and called police said he was intoxicated.

I saw this story somewhere else and it reminded me of when we first moved into this house. There was a crappy old lawn tractor that came with the place and it was always malfunctioning one way or another. One day I got pissed off at it after it threw a drive belt and jumped off it and just flipped it over. I left it laying in that position for a few days.

I seriously wanted to shoot it.

Mike, I was thinking of you when I read the story!!!

So I take it the lawn mower didn't make it?

Catalyst said...

Dawn - The shooter was arrested. No word on the condition of the lawn mower.

As soon as I saw this story I thought of Mike and how much he loves mowing the lawn. Which is the same as me - man, I hate mowing the lawn.


Catalyst said...

Yes, I think we all thought of Mike. Fortunately the first line of the story said it was a Milwaukee, Wisconsin man. Close but not close enough.

I also thought of Mike & the lawnmower with tits! Thank goodness it was not the same mower!
He might have shot it's tits out!!

My, my, my. Mike has established quite a reputation it seems. Anger management classes, maybe?
