Don’t Beat Yourself Up

What Seems To Be The Hold-Up, Sir?

An Austrian man ended up in hospital after he faked an armed robbery because he was too scared to tell his wife he had lost thousands of dollars in a casino. The man, 26, broke his nose, jaw and arm as he beat himself with an iron bar to make the fake robbery seem authentic. But he eventually confessed in hospital.

Ouch! Odds are he wasn't the first gambler to do this.

I a afraid he lost those thousands in Euros, worth almost 50% more than the Dollar. :-(

My GOD, I thought this kind of thing only happened in America! And all to frequently...must be a man thing...not that I want to go man bashing, but so far I've never heard of a woman attacking herself to provide the alibi...oh wait a sec...never mind...
