This past Sunday a Maryland man shot at his wife and kids, leading to an hours long standoff with police over her taking a bite of his grilled cheese sandwich.
“The incident in the Baltimore suburb of Dundalk began Sunday afternoon when Daniel Brian Blackwell, 55, grew irritated with his wife after she took a bite of his grilled cheese sandwich, police said.
Blackwell’s wife told police that he then fired a shot from their basement up through the kitchen floor, narrowly missing her and three teenagers. He told her the sound was a firecracker, according to ABC affiliate WMAR-TV.
After the shot, she went to the basement to confront him, she told police. She found him “surrounded by guns and ammunition,” according to police, and returned to the kitchen.
Shortly thereafter, according to a police statement, Blackwell allegedly fired three more shots into the kitchen from the basement, at which point his wife and the teenagers fled the house and contacted police.
When police arrived, Blackwell engaged tactical units and hostage negotiators for over three hours.”
A complete shame that this guy is facing attempted murder charges while the wife gets off scot-free. My mom used to pull this nonsense too, you know what’s happened since? Divorce lawyers and sad, pathetic J Dates with guys named Melvin and Barry on the reg. Love her, but she deserved it. You can’t just go around biting into other peoples food, family or not. There’s etiquette to be followed and if you don’t abide there are consequences. First, you ask the person if they want a bite or not…always. There are exceptions, like if someone has a huge order of fries and you casually reach your hand in mid conversation and snag one or two. It’s not a classy move, but it’s acceptable. Sandwiches on the other hand? Yeah, you just don’t bite into another persons sandwich full force and not expect serious, maybe even fatal repercussions. Everyone knows that if you really don’t want someone to take a bite of your food you offer when it’s down to it’s last few bites so that the other person doesn’t feel like a complete piece of shit finishing your meal or you play the sick card and boom, you’re a hero because you don’t want to get the other person sick. Ultimately, there’s a lot for both sides to learn on this issue and fortunately nobody was hurt. Except for the wife, she probably should have been seriously injured.
