“Apparently, the man had made a grilled-cheese sandwich and either the wife or the daughter, we’re not exactly sure who, but somebody, one of the females in the house, took a bite of his sandwich, and apparently, that enraged him to the point that he fired shots in the house.”
What a quote.
WBAL Cpl. Shawn Vinson said officers were called around 5 p.m. for a domestic dispute at a house in the 7100 block of North Point Boulevard. A woman and her daughter came out of the house and told officers that shots had been fired. Vinson said no one was hit by the gunfire.”We do have evidence that the weapon was fired,” Vinson said. Police said the suspect remained inside the house alone. Vinson said that the man surrendered peacefully to officers around 8:50 p.m.
This was over a grilled cheese sandwich.
I’m not going to sit here and say that this guy acted in a sane way. If someone is firing off a gun unsafely around their family, let alone in their house, they are a complete moron. However, I will not pretend to be all high and mighty, and claim I’ve never gotten furious over some petty shit. In this case, we can all agree that the preparation of a grilled cheese takes more time than the act of eating it. The payoff is tremendous if done right, but I digress. This guy probably left the room for a second, was all giddy on his way back to the sandwich, and bam! He is seeing red. I will gladly share my food with anyone, I will willingly give up my last bite, but nobody, I repeat nobody gets the first bite. Again, a missing grilled cheese chunk was probably the tipping point of this guy’s problems, but I can’t say he had no right to be pissed.
Fortunately, nobody got hurt in this cheese induced meltdown.
