Snowflake Posted December 8, 2003 Share Posted December 8, 2003 Well, I'm NOT making light of domestic abuse, but my weekend with the neighbors brought a discussion between hubby and I... I ended up calling 911 Friday night because I kept hearing a man's voice through the bedroom window (this is Michigan, it's CLOSED) yelling and just not sounding "right". Had hubby see what was going on, I already had the phone in hand (this is going on across the street). He says, "Call the cops, he's standing behind the car yelling at her and she can't leave - he's telling her to just hit him." So, I get the operator online and go through the usual list of questions (name, address, phone number...) and then she asks if there are any weapons...and as the title for this entry states, I'm not up to my full thought processes right now and answer, "I don't think they have guns, they would have shot each other by now." Then, we hear peeling out down the street and I tell the operator that she has left - she asks if she ran the husband over! (I told her I didn't think so, but couldn't see much because my windows had fogged up.) She asked which way the wife was heading and in what vehicle...and asked me to call if I heard anything more... As I was hanging up the phone, the cars began arriving - parked in front of my house. She returned and no one was arrested, seems it was just a verbal dispute (they haven't had one in the yard for a few months now). This IS a good thing, that there was no one arrested and they seemed to have "made up"... But the thing I stressed to my hubby was...if I am EVER "THAT PISSED", he sure as heck better not be stupid enough to stand BEHIND my car and tell me to just hit him! After all, that would be my defense, my husband being my lord and master and all....RIIIIIIIGHT.... ...you might be a redneck... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
