Death by Solitare

I like playing a computer game as much as the next guy. But this is a bit extreme:

“It was a small fight, something silly,” said Chrisostomides’ cousin and downstairs neighbor, Paul Michaelides. “It started about who would play solitaire on the computer.”

The fight escalated, and Ioannou eventually hurled herself from the balcony, they said. She fell onto a concrete driveway that winds behind the apartment building.

The fight escalated. Ya think??

Exactly how do you go from “hey, it’s my turn to play Solitare on the computer” to “I must jump to my death from this balcony”? There’s something really twisted about these two. As if the impulsiveness of her leaping off a balcony isn’t enough, the guy waits several days and then does the same thing right in front of his grandparents. O-kayyyyy…

    Sounds like we need to let the Polish off the hook and change all those jokes to Greek jokes.

    It’s okay… Ron. You can play with the computer, no problem.

    Back to the story… she’s in the 170+ pound class in Judo and she gets suicidal if she can’t play with the computer? I believe she may be a poor choice in companions.
