From today’s Harper’s Weekly Review:
…a 70-year-old man in Kansas City, Kansas, deliberately got himself arrested for bank robbery to avoid fixing the dryer for his wife.
(I’m trying to think of how to comment on this but I’ve failed. Thus, this parenthetical confession.)
Ooh, ooh, I thought of something to say: if he’d consulted with his wife, he’d probably have learned it would be far less expensive to hire someone to fix the dryer. Or buy a new one. Or…see, guy?
