#16: The Dirty Dozen
Here’s a story that is equal parts funny and exasperating and depressing. It’s funny because someone called 911 for such an utterly ridiculous reason, and it ended up with their husband being arrested. If she had just tried to sort out her issues with the donut shop, things could have gone very differently.
But it’s exasperating and depressing because she knew what her husband was—the kind of man who got so angry over a missing donut that he became dangerous—and yet she not only willingly exposed herself and her children to his abuse, she actually got mad when the cops arrested him for violating a restraining order. Sweetie, you deserve better. Your kids deserve better.
