(Newser) – Brilliant idea of the day: Stop your girlfriend from dumping you and moving out by calling 911 and telling them your "wife" has been kidnapped by two men in a U-Haul truck. That didn't get Florida man Matthew Corp, 35, his girlfriend back, but it did get him arrested, reports NBC Miami. When deputies from the county Sheriff's Office went to Corp's house, his girlfriend was still there, but, she told them, she was now his "ex-girlfriend." Corp, who was drunk and yelled at the deputies, authorities say, was arrested for misusing 911 and resisting arrest.

See kids. This is what not to do with women but it's ok if she does it.

WHEE! He should use his mugshot when he registers on an online dating service. He can justly claim he is "ready to commit". Or, at least, ready to be committed .
