An ungrateful person complains when their spouse gives them a fast food sandwich they don’t like. A truly horribly human being assaults that spouse with the sandwich in question.

The Des Moines Register has the story of a 21-year-old man arrested yesterday for allegedly assaulting his pregnant wife with a McChicken sandwich from McDonald’s.

The man told police that his wife woke him up (at 1 p.m., no less) offering him the sandwich. And because he “doesn’t like them,” he got all pissy and threw the McChicken at her. To prove that he’s a true a-hole, he then picked up the bun and tossed that at the woman he pledged to spend the rest of his life with. The wife told police he actually smashed the bun into her face.

When she went to the bathroom to de-McChicken herself, the husband followed her and — for reasons that remain unclear — shot video of her with his phone. Police say that the footage shows the wife knocking the phone out of her husband’s hand.

Police believe that the husband was deliberately trying to provoke his wife into grabbing at his phone in an attempt to make her look aggressive, perhaps to bolster his claim that she assaulted him first.

The husband was arrested on charges of simple domestic assault.
