This was the scene we drove up to when getting
gas for our car. What had just happened? It looked like a sledge hammer went through the wind shield and it was done on purpose. We were on our way home from church and saw the gas tank near empty. As my husband got out of the car I could not stop staring as I had never seen this before. A man who worked at the gas station, Harold, who said it was o.k. to state his name, said, "You missed it. This happened about twenty minutes ago." (It was 1:30 p.m.) He was animated in his gestures while he told us the story of the driver and his lady friend.
Harold continued to tell us how the man who was driving this car
parked at this gas station and convenience shop, meeting up with a lady friend. As they were parked in the car, a taxi drove up behind them and out came a woman with a New York Yankees bat that Harold says was a Lou Gehrig edition. Many people who were stopping for gas drove by to find out what had happened. It could have also appeared as if someone left their car parked at a Bronx gas station overnight and someone vandalized the car.
Suddenly, she proceeded to run up to the car and started smashing
in the windows, with the bat, while they were still in the car! He did not give all the details of what this woman must have been saying while smashing in the windows or if she even said anything, stating what she needed to say, with the bat. Harold stated from what he witnessed she was his wife who wanted to catch him cheating and she followed him in the taxi, prepared with the bat on hand. While she was beating in the car "both her husband and lover ran for cover". "They were running for their lives!"
At that point, I remembered all of you and jumped out the car with my cell phone camera, pulling myself away from Harold's story. After taking the first picture I remembered my last post and that I wanted to do a series on Jealousy. This was perfect timing. I felt like a news reporter in the right place at the right time to document the evidence of a woman with Jealous Fury. She had followed her suspicions and must have been absolutely sure as she planned to take the bat. They are lucky she only damaged the car.
