Maybe they should hire a housekeeper for the future.

We’re trying to figure out which is more pathetic, stabbing your roommate over dirty dishes or being in your 50s and not being able to afford your own place in Iowa.

According to KCRG, a 55-year-old Des Moines man was arrested Wednesday evening after he allegedly stabbed his 48-year-old roommate with a cheese knife following an argument about dirty dishes.

Police said they found the victim standing in the kitchen with a stab wound in his lower back when they arrived. They also found the 55-year-old dude in another room with a “bloody blade” next to him, which he said was the cheese knife he was holding when he got pushed by his roommate, claiming he was forced to use it in self-defense.

Police thought that story was pure dog shit, so they arrested him on suspicion of stabbing his roommate.

You would think that simply ordering a housekeeper to do the dishes once a week could have prevented the stabbing, and for the record, the average rate for someone to clean your kitchen is only $12.75 per hour. Although if you still need a roommate when you’re 55 years old, then odds are that coming up with that chicken scratch would be a real bitch.
