Life Imitates Art: Man Breaks Into House To Fix Computers
from the where-have-I-heard-this-before... dept
Just last week, some friends were telling me about this movie they had recently seen called Bin-jip or "3 Iron." The movie is about a man who breaks into peoples' homes while they're away -- but rather than robbing them, he "repays" them by fixing things, doing the laundry and random other chores. So, it was a bit surprising to then read an article saying that, in China, a man was arrested for breaking into someone's house and fixing a computer, as well as doing the laundry and other random chores. The specific situation is a bit different, as the guy had a crush on the woman in the house and was caught taking her MP3 player so it, too, could be repaired -- but also with some of her underwear, making the motives even more questionable. Still, apparently the court was swayed by the love story, and let the guy off.
