Court Fines Mother For Phoning Son Too Much 7

An Austrian man was forced to take his mom to court for stalking after she called him incessantly over a two-and-a-half year period. The 73-year-old woman, who would phone her son up to 49 times a day, was fined 360 euros ($478) by the court in the southern city of Klagenfurt. "I just wanted to talk to him. I can't talk to my son, nor my daughter. I've never seen my grandchild — who is already 15 years old," she told the court.

  • She's bat**** crazy, obviously.

    I can't blame either one of them for not bringing grandchildren around for a 'nice visit'.

    Ten minutes later, they're in the oven.

    • Unfortunately monetary (or even criminal) penalties will not help this woman, nor will it likely stop her obsessive/compulsive behavior. The son needs to get a new phone number and make sure that he only shares it with a very small group of highly trusted individuals.

      I've dealt with people like this (as a schlimazel), and from my experience anti-psychotic drugs (alone) don't seem to work either. I would think operant conditioning would help in such cases, but the medical profession seems to be more interest

      • Lol, operant conditioning. Hook line voltage to the phone and when she dials his number, it sends full current through her head. You adversion along with ECT. Double win.
