TGIS: Thank God It's Schadenfreude! (242)

This week's joy in the misfortune of others comes courtesy of Reuters (from Thursday, October 22; link good at time of posting):
A Sicilian builder transferred from prison to house arrest tried to get himself locked up again to escape arguments with his wife at home, Italian media reported Thursday.


[Santo] Gambino went to the police station and asked to be put away again to avoid arguing with his wife, who accused him of failing to pay for the upkeep of their two children.

Police charged him with violating the conditions of his sentence and made him go home and patch things up with his wife.
