Well, this is a lovely way to wake up. A 29-year-old woman in Florida allegedly burst into her ex-boyfriend's home, found him sleeping in bed with another woman, lit the mattress of fire, then laughed at them from outside the fire ring as the two clamored to get out. Ex-Boyfriend and Current Girlfriend managed to escape unscathed, so yay for happy endings, but dude, what hell is wrong with this woman? To light your ex's bed on fire is bad enough. But to stand on the outside "taunting" them like some kind of demon takes things to a whole new level of banaynay.
The woman, Nicole Dobol, apparently went to a place called Hog Heaven Bar and Grill to find her ex's roommate. When she found him, Nicole inquired as to where her ex was, and he told her that he was at home. (Thanks, roomie!) Apparently, the fire was still blazing when Roommate got home. He said that the reason Nicole set fire to the mattress was because it "made her crazy" to see her ex with another woman. Think so?
Look. Clearly, this woman -- "if she did commit this crime" -- isn't right. A normal person doesn't torch an ex's mattress while he's in it. A normal person stalks their ex on Facebook, and considers getting hair extensions. That said, though, maybe, just maybe, if Nicole would have waited a few minutes before rushing over like a bat out of hell from Hog Heaven, she wouldn't have ("allegedly") done this. Heck, maybe if she hung out at Hog Heaven a little while longer, she would have met some nice boy that took her mind off of her ex.
So many of these asinine, insane crimes are done in the heat (heh) of the moment. If people would just wait a god-dang second and cool off a bit, they could spare everyone -- including themselves -- a lot.
What did Nicole gain from this? Aside from a likely stint in jail, not much. Think before you torch, kids.
What do you think of this?
