Italian man kidnaps ex-lover to do ironing

July 10, 2008 3:53am CST
Ok so this sounds really odd!! An Italian man has been arrested on suspicion of kidnapping his former lover from a bar, taking her to his home and forcing her to iron his clothes and do his washing-up. The 43 year old man apparently dragged the woman out of a city pub and shoved her into a car according to Genoa police. When they arrived at his hose, he then threatened his former lover to do his chores! After being tipped off by a friend of the woman's who had witnessed the abduction the police broke up the scene of enforced domestic bliss. The man who was furious at his partner for leaving him was arrested for kidnapping! Surley he is old enough to do his own chores or he maybe old fashioned and believe it is 'womans work'. Either way he shouldnt have forced her to do the chores just because she left him.

What a whack-o! Just goes to show you, ya gotta be careful who you date. This guy was obviously missing a few. Stories like this one makes one terrified of dating.

What a silly thing to do! Why risk incarceration and imprisonment just to get a few chores done? I'm sure he was trying to make a point with the ex about how she should be doing those things anyway. But now we see why she left him in the first place. He was just a loud man who preferred violence. No woman should have to put up with that!

I don't know if I have to laugh at this news. Very odd indeed. If I happened to be the woman he kidnapped I will slap his face many times. He is old enough to do his laundry and house chores. If he can't do it on his own. He should hire a house helper to do the works. I think the woman leaves him because she doesn't love him anymore. It is wrong to force her to return back.
