TGIS: Thank God It's Schadenfreude! (86)

This week's joy in the misfortune of others comes courtesy of the Associated Press (from Monday, October 16; link good at time of posting):

A Georgia man has been sentenced to take his wife and two children out to Christmas dinner at one of Atlanta’s most expensive restaurants.

A judge imposed the sentence on Wendell Rogers for ruining last Christmas by fighting with his wife in front of their children and trying to prevent her from calling for help.

In addition to the dinner, Rogers also was sentenced to 12 months in jail, with the time suspended while he takes an anger management course.

Rogers will have to submit a receipt to the court for dinner by January fifth.
