Guy kidnaps ex-girlfriend to get the ironing done

Some people will go to great lengths to get their housework done...

"Back in my day" my grandfather used to say, "men worked and women did the housework". "Why?" I used to ask to which he would reply, "because they did".

You can't argue with logic like that.

Thankfully a woman's place is no longer seen as being in the kitchen and more than ever everyone is free to go about their lives as they wish. Phew.

This perfectly reasonable brand of social equality still doesn't stop the nutters though, and as we all know, there are a lot of nutters about. Today's nutter of the day decided to kidnap his ex-girlfriend and threaten her to do his housework. Talk about extreme ironing...

Last week Reuters reported the story in which a 43 year old Italian man (let's not say gentleman) dragged his ex out of a pub, shoved her into a car and then took her home. When there he made her do the washing up and ironing whilst under constant threat of attack. He was subsequently arrested on charges of kidnapping and we can only assume that his shirt was beautifully crease free.

The man was apparently furious that his girlfriend had left him. I doubt she was ecstatic that he came back to get her...
