Couples Fighting In Public

A friend of mine was telling me about the last time he and his wife had a squabble in a crowded store several weeks ago. His brother-in-law was there with them, wishing he hadn't tagged along. My buddy's wife was cursing at him, shouting loudly enough for everyone to hear, causing all eyes to be on them. The brother-in-law walked away, went outside to the car and waited for the inside show to be over. My friend, unfortunately, stuck around, quiet as always, while her screaming continued. He told me how embarrassing it was. I told him, since it wasn't her first time pulling a public tantrum, that she may do it because she knows he won't say anything back to her, to further amplify the drama and awe of curious onlookers. That way, in her mind, she wins. He agreed to the possibility.

I don't understand why anyone would choose to pick a fight in a public place. I guess I have too much self respect. Now I have done things for a laugh in public, but that's another story for another post.

While checking out the weird news on Yahoo, I came across this story about a couple fighting yesterday in New York. This guy was on the roof of the car his girlfriend was driving. The road they're on is packed with cars, of course. Anyway, while she's banging into cars here and there, her boyfriend is busy punching a hole through the windshield to get at her head. Now.... that's embarrassing. Heh heh. During her game of highway pinball, the girlfriend gets a surprise. The air bag blows up in her face. She finally stops the car. The boyfriend sails off the car top and lands on the highway. She rips the airbag out, gets out of the vehicle and proceeds to hit the boyfriend with the airbag until the cops come to the scene. Lucky them.

Here's another story. This took place in Tennessee. Isn't that the "Show Me" state? Hell, I don't know. But it seems this couple were trying to show something. Maybe their lack of self-respect.... or their asses.

A couple that began squabbling in a motel room Friday morning carried their dispute over to an adjacent Waffle House restaurant in the nude, police said.
The woman, who was not identified, told officers she was staying in a room with Larry Boyd when he took a hit of cocaine, started trashing their room and choked her.

She ran in the buff to the nearby restaurant and locked herself in the bathroom. Boyd, also naked, followed her into the restaurant and then fled in a car.
He was arrested — still naked — after a short chase by police and was charged with driving under the influence and felony evading arrest, among other charges. It was not immediately clear whether he had an attorney.

All around this wacky world, you can hear, read or see cases like these and it makes you wonder why people display this behaviour. For attention?

If you've ever had the accident of seeing the Jerry Springer Show, then you'll see a whole circus of people yelling, finger pointing and pulling hair on national television. Jerry's "freak show" regularly displays people practicing bad behaviour. The type of folks he welcomes on his show seem to enjoy the attention. They must be very insecure, lonely and out of their minds-not to mention ignorant.

If you have any theories about this subject, let me in on them. Frankly, I don't get it.

Just found your blog ... loving it.

As for the public drama, I've always attributed it to the Opraization of our society. I think I made that up, but feel free to use it. People wanna be seen or something ... validated. Unfortunatley they'll take validation in any way...even if it's negative.

Oh, I have a theory. People are nutters!!!

Not us, of course. Just the rest of them. :)

I think you are both correct. People are nutters and they want attention-good or bad.

And yeah, not us, of course. Heh heh.

Dump that biatch!

Well, maybe not.. I don't know much about this situation :).

That's not cool of her at all though. Bad communication and disrespectul. Definitely needs to change.

I agree with you, Jared.
