Jealousy 2

>> Sunday, July 11, 2010

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.

Wow! Such drama! I am surprised that woman was strong enough to crash in those windows so severely! I just read another blog post from a friend who said they chose a family theme this year to be "Soft words and soft voices." I had to chuckle to myself when I saw this post with such a drastic feel in the family love ;)

Reminds me of the scene in Road Trip, except she also used the bat on the guy.

Happy SITS day.

Stopping by from SITS... I have heard of a woman scorned but this was a little over the top. Thank GOD they were able to run for their lives and she didn't go after them but focused on the car!!

OMG, that kind of stuff is always fun to observe but never fun to be part of. Well, I guess I have a sick idea of fun, but it would be fascinating to watch, don't you think? :)

Man, can you imagine how good it would feel to just DEMOLISH something like that?? I would have loved to witness that in real life!

Man oh man, she was mad!!! They are sooo lucky not to be dead. Hope she finds her peace and happy because being that angry had to hurt like heck.

Hi! I'm visiting from SITS. Great post! I've heard of stories like these many times, but I've never seen such detailed images of the physical damage. Way to think quickly on your feet!
