She Just Couldn't Take It Anymore!

No reason why this woman killed her husband. Let's just guess that she probably just couldn't take it anymore. His abusive nature, or unemployment, or his philandering. Something happened that this woman snapped and killed her husband by shooting him - and then set his body on fire to try to hide the evidence. We will never know what it was that happened because she's not talking any more. She was beheaded yesterday. [What's the total so far?] The daughter is in prison; her sentence was 15 years and 2,000 lashes for helping her mother try to burn the man's body.

A housemaid has stabbed "an infant." Sounds worse than it is - which is not to make light of the fact that a child has been stabbed, but a two-year-old is NOT an infant. A two-year-old is a toddler. I'm calling B.S. on this story. Something more happened. The father of the child was stabbed when he tried to help the child. The maid was fresh off the boat and believed the vaccine she received at the hospital during her mandatory medical physical was an attempt by the family to try to harm her. There is more to this than what is being reported.

When you can't get workers from certain countries because word of how abusive employers are and word of how employers don't pay the promised salaries deters others from coming to work, here, what do you do? Simply find another third world country in dire straits and hire from that country. Oh, and for the record, it is never the employer's fault, but always the employee's fault whenever ANY wrongdoing occurs. This makes that pretty clear: "...the increasing trend of workers to try to escape their sponsors" is because of a "lack of deterrent." Of course that only happens when "breaches of contract go unpunished," and there is mention of punishing "both parties," but I think we all know how that works out. Only the employee is actually punished. A recent proposal to reduce the fees incurred by the employer [which in a high percentage of cases is actually paid by the employee by means of salary deduction] is supposed to encourage employers to give their employees incentives to stay with them. Um-hmm. Don't see that being any part of the solution. But, hey. That's just my opinion.


  1. I have met and heard from many women in the USA who believe that vaccinations will harm their kids by inflicting illness, causeing autism or subjecting kids to mind-controll. They usually sound calm, concerned and crazy and rarely try to stab me.


    At least here is is scattered paranoia; in some countries it is an organized effort to bring back the gift of polio.

    I barely listen to the local radio but sometimes I have it on when i'm driving home from work. There's this request show and someone requested Britney Spears' "Slave 4 U" and dedicated it to his co-workers and his employer who refuses to allow his iqama to be transferred to a company offering him a new job. I thought it was sad and funny at the same time. lol!

  3. I've heard the same, before, vermindust. Have no problem with it if that's what you believe. But like you said, they are "calm, concerned and crazy and rarely try to stab me." I'm thinking there is more to that story than what was reported. No doubt...

    Some of the rules and regulations in this part of the world are mind-boggling, A Male Secretary. Just mind-boggling. One of the drivers I used to like wanted to quit driving and come work for us. He was going to be our full-time houseboy, gardener, driver and babysitter when we are out of the country. He would have taken a pay cut to do so [no tips as he wouldn't have been driving for the general public anymore]. He tried and tried and tried to get his company to let him be released AFTER his contract with them was done and they refused. He is back in Pakistan, now, and it would be incredibly difficult for us to bring him in, now.
