Mute buttons do not work in real life
A woman in Wellington, Fla. has been charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. That part of the story isn't so strange. The battery was against her husband. Still not too out of the ordinary.
But when you consider that the weapon was a remote control, it gets a bit wacky.
Rita Counts, 48, was arrested and charged after her 50-year-old husband called police, saying his wife had hit him on the head and arms with a remote control during an argument.
The husband had visible red marks and black bruises on his body.
Here's the lesson out there for husbands everywhere: if your wife is watching her favorite soap opera, don't insist on changing the channel. She will hit you. Hard.
And by the way…pointing the remote at her and hitting the mute button…that doesn't actually work.
