She Hates These Cans!

SteveHatesCans.jpgA 61-year-old Michigan woman, finally fed the hell up with her husband, fired a gun at him, but missed him, taking out the damn flat-screen television instead. (Damnit. What a waste.) After the husband locked himself in the basement and refused to come out, he called 911, and he and his wife then got into a bickering argument with the dispatcher.

The wife then got on the phone, saying to the dispatcher, “he pushed me over the edge that was all.”
She said she was fed up that he was taking out his problems—a family member dying and his recently stroke—out on her.
“He’s taking it all out on me,” she told the dispatcher.
“No, I’m not,” he protested.

The woman, who has been charged with assault with intent to commit murder, claims she wasn’t trying to hurt or kill her husband. I guess she was just trying to show him how much she cared by putting a bullet in his chest.

Of course, it could’ve been worse: She could’ve stabbed him with her car key.
