When In Rome . . .

By Wyatt Earp | January 3, 2010

It’s probably a good idea to not do what this Roman does. Unless, that is, you want to alienate your entire family in one fell swoop. Of course, there are probably more than a few people out there that will send thank you cards to this guy for the great idea.

RT sent me this story and she thought I would like it. .

ROME – A Sicilian man stole sweets and a packet of chewing gum so he could get arrested and spend New Year’s Eve in a jail cell rather than be with his wife and relatives, Italian media reported on Friday.

The 35-year old Sicilian first showed up at a police station on Thursday asking to be arrested because he preferred spending the night in prison rather than with his family, but was rebuffed because he had not committed a crime, the Agi news agency said.

The man immediately went to a tobacco shop next door, where he threatened the owner with a box cutter as he grabbed a few sweets and a packet of gum. He then waited until police arrived to arrest him for robbery, the news agency said.

So here’s my question: What do you think this man had to fear more? Dropping the soap in front of his cellmate Bubba or going home to his very angry Sicilian wife?

    He knew to “never go against when death is on the line.”

    Proof – The in-laws usually wear the black hats.

    Old NFO – Everyone comes to the holidays armed to the teeth.

    RT – Fantastic film!
