She should get 30 years for that kind of crap. Almost killed innocent people.

Show jealousy towards my toys or especially question her place in the pecking order of things in my life...females are a dime a dozen and too easy to replace when one owns a Harley, boat or especially both.

She's about on par with my first wife. I had to call the cops on her several times and eventually had to resort to charging her with assault.

So she did a career change and was, last I heard, doing "anger management therapy" with children. OMG!

Not that she has changed, according to my kids anyway, who deal with her cautiously. She has only gotten slicker with her attacks. It's a heartbreaker to see what she has accomplished. But from a long line of like minded folks. It has convinced me mental illness can be inherited.

Re: Wife vs. Boat

The judge was clearly just being sexist when he said to her:

"You were a manipulative, angry and troubled individual."

Do we really need to perpetuate such stereotypes? It's as if Donald Trump was sitting on the bench over there, taking delight in offering his personal opinion about one of God's children, and we're supposed to believe the plain gender realities are just some sort of coincidence.

Should we be surprised that the article failed to mention that Not One of the floor boards where marked "sinkable" at the time she drilled the holes & left the boat.

I'm going to find a safe space at a local taxpayer funded college so that I can avoid all of this blatant political mean-speech.

Re: Wife vs. Boat

So much emotion in otherwise fishy species?

Sure that lady got pissed off and as I know our kind I can guess she had every reason to sink his toy.

Well done!

;-)

Yeah - let's all go all in for "PC speech". No worries that the judge's comments don't perpetuate any stereotypes I am aware of. His comments could apply equally to a man or to a woman. This woman may have been exactly as described. We have (all) heard much worse said about individual men, and other women. This type of behavior is outside any acceptable norms - even if the owner might have been a despicable person, which he well might have been. She could have killed one or more people. If a man had done it, the description given by the judge would also fit the bill.

Having said that, there are some rank and despicable sexist comments on here. I could name names but we all know who they are. They actually seem proud of it.

Re: Wife vs. Boat

Given the number of boats around and the average asking on the Yachtworld, whatever that lady did was of minor social and economical impact. If I were her judge, I would simply make her promise she would never ever again play with the drill.

Given how much acceptance and indifference there is for bullying, I do not find it odd when people blow up and act in a somewhat exaggerated (in other circumstances) way.

Every time a bike gets stolen we report it to the harbour police ... and all we ever get is that odd look. Imagine the day we catch one of the thieves ... how can we justify not drowning the bastard?

The society, the police, the whole system are always, to some extent, responsible for NOT taking enough action quick enough. We should have been more active when that guy was shouting at that lady while docking that men's toy.

Bingo.

I get the feeling that a lot of the thread replies are from people who didn't read the full story.

That is not sexist at all.
Men can be manipulative. Men can be angry. Men can be troubled.

They're trades that can be found in both sexes. Nothing sexist about it.

If you think that's sexist, you apparently think only females can be manipulative / angry / troubled ... which makes you a tat sexist.

Yes, im well aware of that. But there only senators. And frankly, all the states have their weird reps. Just look at Q'land, the guy with the big hat

But, i still dont see how the comment was in any way sexist
