Cleaning Up The Mess
This is one of the most disturbing personal stories on this list. It’s heartbreaking that a young kid had to witness such violence between his parents. After an argument between his mom and dad over a green Heinz ketchup bottle, his dad attacked his mother. “He loaded a shotgun, then pressed his head against hers and tried to force her to pull the trigger. All the while I’m standing in the doorway watching in complete silence.”
The mom thought quickly and saved herself. “She put her finger behind the trigger and was only left with a blood blister, from him trying to pull it regardless. She eventually wriggled free and he says, “I’m just going to kill myself then!”
To which my mom responds with, “Well do it outside… because I really don’t feel like cleaning up the mess.” That took balls.” It sounds like the mom has dealt with this so much that she now doesn’t care whether her husband is alive or dead (via Playbuzz).
