My Hero - Guy shoots Lawn mower

Here is something that made News today: US Man Charged for Shooting Lawn mower

Excerpt from it:

A 56-year-old man from the Midwestern US state of Wisconsin has been arrested after shooting his lawn mower in his garden because it would not start.

Police officers said Mr Walendowski had told them: "It's my lawn mower and my yard, so I can shoot it if I want."

The guy now faces up to 7 years in prison! How many of us have had the intense urge to beat the shi*t out of something that is totally frustrating us? Just in the last week, I wanted to:
- Throw my computer off 5th floor window coz it froze while I was working on something important.
- Choke the guy controlling power cuts coz it is very frustrating to look for soap in the bathroom in total darkness.
- Shoot a crow coz it took a dump on my windshield! (I would return the favor if I knew where it was nesting.)
and many more ....

I guess that is the difference between thought and action - 7 years in a prison. But, I definitely sympathize with the guy for shooting his mower.
