State police in western Pennsylvania said Jessica Hollis, who resides in Mount Pleasant, did something very unpleasant in traffic: she threw a dirty diaper at another woman’s car in a traffic jam.
Melanie Campbell was just another one of the hundreds of people leaving the Fayette County fairgrounds one night in August of 2010, when tempers began to flare between impatient motorists.
Campbell said Hollis threw the diaper onto her car, but when that didn’t suffice her frustration, Hollis then jumped out of her car, ran over to Campbell’s, and began to smear the dirty diaper – and its contents – on the rear of the car.
I’m resisting a pun about rears right now….
In the end, Hollis was charged with harassment for losing her cool in such an unsanitary way. In hindsight, she would have been much better off following the wisdom of Proverbs regarding anger:
A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. (15:1)
A fool gives full vent to his anger, but a wise man keeps himself under control. (29:11)
