A Japanese husband is probably wishing he had made a courtesy flush, or at least sprayed a little air freshener, after his wife stabbed him for stinking up the bathroom with his poop.
According to Metro, 29-year-old Emi Mamiya of Otaku, Japan, was so offended by the stench her 34-year-old husband left in the bathroom that she attacked him with a knife.
Police reported that altercation stared when Mimiaya was angered by the "rancid smell" that her husband left in the bathroom.
To add insult to injury, he then tried to help their toddler son use the toilet "without washing his own hands first."
'The toilet stinks so much that the child cannot even use it," she told Japanese wire service, Jiji.
That was the final straw. Miamiya snapped, attacking her husband with a knife and leaving a seven-inch gash on the left side of his face.
Mamiya was arrested and charged with attempted murder, but according to the Huffington Post, she denies that she was trying to kill her husband.
Maimiya isn't the only one who has been driven to violence over poop – a Massachusetts man was arrested in November for stabbing two of his neighbors over dog poop.
Local news outlet 12 News Now reported that Michael Valentin, 33, was upset because his second floor neighbors were allowing their pooch to do its business on the stairs and in the side yard of the multi-family home they resided in.
According to the police report, they had responded to a call about an hour before the stabbing when Valentin and his neighbors had gotten into an altercation. Police thought the situation had been resolved and left the residence, but apparently Valentin couldn't let it go. He stabbed the 46-year-old woman and her 23-year-old daughter.
The mother suffered several stab wounds to the back, and her daughter was stabbed in the face and neck. Both women survived the attack, and Valentin was charged with armed assault with intent to murder, and mayhem.
Virgilio Tumbali of the Philippines wasn't so lucky. According to ABS-CBN News, 61-year-old Tumbali was stabbed to death by his 69-year-old neighbor, Edilberto Torres, after an argument over dog poop.
Investigators reported that Tumbali had confronted his neighbor for allowing his dog to poop near his house and not cleaning it up. Torres later approached Tumbali while he was talking with some other neighbors and stabbed him repeatedly in the back. He died enroute to the hospital.
The Inquistr reported last month on a woman who fought poo with poo when she smeared feces on her elderly neighbor after getting into an argument over the neighbor's dog pooping in her yard.
