In the heat of the moment, people have been known to do some crazy things that they never would normally do. Ever hear the term blind rage? It’s phrase for the phenomenon that occurs when otherwise rational people become completely irrational due to something that upsets them.
For example, finding your husband with pictures of a much younger woman on his cell phone is the type of instance that might send one into a blind rage.
Now a normal person might say something like, “who is that?” and demand an explanation, but an insane person, who jumps to the conclusion that their husband must be a cheating scumbag, might stab him “several times.”
According to Radio.com, that’s exactly what happened to one poor bastard in Mexico… except here’s the kicker… the pictures were of HIS WIFE.
Yep, he took some old photographs of his wife from their younger days, scanned them to a computer, and then saved them to his phone so he would have them to look at. He actually sounds like quite the sweetheart. But his wife, not recognizing HERSELF, thought it was a younger woman he was having an affair with and stabbed him multiple times.
He was able to wrestle the knife away from her and explain that it was her in the pictures, however no before neighbors heard the melee and called the police. Needless to say, she was arrested and now he’s really gonna be glad he has those pictures on his phone… he might not be seeing her for a while.
Some people might suspect we have a case of early-onset dementia going on here, and if that’s the case, it’s really a shame. However, I’m thinking there was another third party involved… BOOZE. This screams crazy drunk behavior to me.
Also, I don’t know why, but this story reminded me of this scene from Rush Hour 2. What an underrated movie.
