A woman stabbed her ex-boyfriend in the arm and elbow with a knife because he just wouldn’t stop playing the Eagles. Vernett Bader, 54, of North Charleston, S.C., is going to need to find a new roommate after attacking her roommate, 64, (who is also her ex) for playing the Eagles on repeat. Bader, who, as you probably guessed, was drunk at the time, complained to her roommate that she was sick of the Eagles. He told her to “shut up.”
Pause the scene right there, and the roommate is clearly the one in the wrong. It’s important to respect your roommate’s boundaries, and the Eagles are one of those bands that are inoffensive on the surface, but they are also overplayed, and from the sound of it, the roommate was only adding to the overplaying. The thing is, Bader kind of overreacted. (Though hey, at least Bader has a sympathizer in one of the greatest movie characters ever to grace the screen.)
Unable to get her roommate to turn off the Eagles by conventional means, she attacked him with a serrated knife. He managed to wrestle the knife away from her, but she found another knife and attacked him, cutting him on the arm and hand, before he managed to lock himself in the bathroom.
The moral of the story: choose your roommates carefully. You want your home to be a sanctuary, not a place where you run into Eagles-triggered knife fights.
