It takes all types

This morning I was listening to my favorite morning show enroute to work. Sue wasn't there, as she was taking some well deserved days off. But Scott and Ryan Haidet were talking a bout a news article about a man was asking as part of his divorce settlement that his ex wife gives the kidney he donated back. Now that's an idea for a country song-"You broke my heart, now I want my kidney back."

Scott was also taking calls from snow plow operators. One of these people was a barber who said that he would give him a shave from a straight razor if he would come to his shop in Doylestown. Excuse me Scott, but as a long time Rittman resident, I need to caution you. I would not trust anyone in Doylestown being close to my throat with a straight razor.

HA HA! Sounds like a great country song just waiting for you to write it, Cliff! :)

What a story. I just read the link.. what stuck me was someone said the woman was a "b***h" for divorcing a man after he gave her a kidney.

Wow. He does not know why she divorced him. (maybe he was abusive or controlling). She did have his 3 children and she did wait 7+ years after the surgery to ask for a divorce.

People should NOT assume what goes on in a MARRIAGE or any relationship as an OUTSIDER.

I know people used to tell my MOTHER how lucky she was married to such a handsome attentive man (right only when other people were around).

Another commenter said his real motive is to give her less of a settlement by saying the organ is worth 1.5 Million (that sounds more logical why his lawyer is doing this).

Hope all is going great with your Cliff.

The man asking for that kidney back should be ashamed of himself - I suspect he knows that it would never happen but shame on him for even bringing it up. What must his children think of him!! Crazy!

i don't disagree that it's an unreasonable request - - but tune in to one of the news channels and listen to the guy speak. i think he knows it's something that can't be done - - but i think she hurt him badly - and he's striking back by asking for something really unattainable, but will show his world how badly she hurt him....listen to him talk about why he's doing it....

doylestown must have changed some since i remember it cliff. didn't used to be that way....

Don: That line, as I told Scott Wynn in an email, is for the amusement of my Rittman readers, as Rittman and Chippewa(Doylestown) are fierce rivals. I have seen some ugly things happen at football games between the two schools, and I would not consider wearing red and black-Rittman's colors-when I would go to the Doylestown pressbox for halftime.

There have been some pretty rotten things done over the years in both directions.

the kidney puts a new spin on being taken to the cleaners doesn't it....

I couldn't believe the kidney story either. Clearly, it's a ploy so he can get his divorce settlement lessened by the "value" of the kidney.

Just a sad commentary, really.

Wow they find some crazy stuff on the radio to air in the mornings, I was listening to Bob and Tom one day and they talked about a man who left his 3 year old son in the car while he went in to a strip club!! He told the little boy to stay in the car or Monsters would Eat him!! Yes they wrote a song about it I don't remember if it was country but is was a good giggle, I am grateful today to not have to be involved in such chaos. Remember to keep a sense of humor when listening to the radio
