Here's an idea: The next time your husband is driving you crazy, drive him ... to the police station! That's what one woman in Wisconsin did recently. For real. Drove her spouse right to the slammer and told cops she was turning him in for "talking stupidly" and swearing. And guess what?
They arrested him! Well done, I say. Cheaper than couples' therapy (or a divorce, for that matter). And the wife is guaranteed a little peace and quiet at last, at least until somebody posts bail. (I'm guessing she probably won't be that somebody.) Anyway, how amazing would it be if law enforcement officers everywhere agreed that men's most irritating habits were a punishable offense?
"Talking stupidly" would probably amount to no more than a night or two in jail (depending on just how stupid the talk really was, right). Here are a few more potential crime and punishment combos:
Leaving the toilet seat up again $50 fine
Forgetting your birthday 6 months probation
Forgetting you exist during football season 100 hours of community service
Leaving dirty clothes on the floor next to the hamper Complete a 6-week stain treatment program
Giving any sort of household appliance as an anniversary gift A stint working in the morgue (à la Lindsay Lohan)
Whaddya think, ladies -- something to consider?
Which annoying habit of your husband's makes you want to lock him up?
