There's Something About Thin Mints

TIME is reporting on a story that has been making the rounds this week. It's the story of Hersha Howard, 31, of Naples, Florida, who was arrested and charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. The deadly weapon? A pair of scissors. The reason for the attack? Howard's roommate had nabbed her beloved Thin Mints. According to the Collier County Sheriff's Office report, Jasmin Wanke was sleeping soundly when her hungry roommate, Howard, burst in to her room accusing her of the theft. Wanke tried to reason with the raging Howard, but was unsuccessful. The biscuity battle continued until Wanke's husband separated the pair, but Howard had other plans.
I have to admit that I found my box of Shortbreads emptied out last night after a long day of work. I laughed, knowing it was my roommate. Had it been the Thin Mints, I may have reacted in a different manner! Do missing Thin Mints send you into a rage?
