Don't get HER mad at you!!


Wife allegedly changes wires on saw to shock hubby


Mon Jan 11, 4:37 pm ET

OLYMPIA, Wash. – Court papers allege that an Olympia woman, angry that her husband left her, tampered with his power tools so that he received a powerful electric shock. Carolyn Paulsen-Riat was booked Friday into the Thurston County Jail for investigation of third-degree assault, domestic violence, and second-degree malicious mischief. A judge released the 33-year-old woman on her own recognizance.

The Olympian newspaper reported that court documents said that on Jan. 1, the man was using a 220-volt table saw when he received the shock, knocking him to the ground. Thurston County sheriff's deputies said the man did not need to go to a hospital.

In the documents, deputies said the woman told them she had reversed the wires on his power tools because she was angry he was leaving.

I am safe, I am pretty sure the wife would not know how to do that.

Most women would take the I-don't-want-to-go-to-jail route ~ let all the air out of his tires, sell all of his tools for a dollar or throw all of his stuff out on the front lawn.

My friend said her mom, in the early 80's, put her dads boat, riding lawnmower, tools, etc. out on the front lawn and sold everything while he wasn't home.

The wife of a man my husband works with hired a guy to kill her hubby. Luckily (for him ) the man she hired was an undercover cop.

Don't think this would be quicker, but surely more effective.

That's funny.

When the man was interviewed for this article, he said, "I had no idea she knew how to switch the wires around. It came as quite a shock to me."

Yeh, a friend of mine had something like this happen to him and all of us thought they were doing just fine. He went down to the coast (about 200 miles) to go fishing on an overnight trip. When he came home, everything he owned had been placed in the front yard near the street with a sign: "FREE, please take what you want", the door locks had been changed, and within the minutes of arriving he was arrested for trespassing. He was served divorce papers while in jail. It turns out she and the neighbor across the street were a hot item and that is where she was watching from when he arrived home. It could have been handled better.

That's why, before marrying, you should date your sweetie for at least 15 years.

Then spend 5 more years after that in pre-marriage counseling.

Just to be sure she's the one, take 7 additional years to think about it before you propose to that special gal.

Set the date for 5 years from the time of the proposal. This will give you plenty of time to save for the big day.

Like they say, there's no need to rush into things.

DUH, maybe the frostbite from her cold shoulder should have been his first clue something was amiss. Rewiring 220v takes serious motivation

Happy wife ... happy life

or as I like to say

When it comes to the issues with the wife ....

You can be right..... or you can be happy,....choose wisely

Don't start dating until you are in your fifties, that way the odds one of you won't be around are pretty good.
