    Unhappy Man what people do these days!

    Just found this news while I was checking my Gmails.

    VIENNA (Reuters) - A 66-year-old Austrian woman lived for almost a year with the corpse of her 85-year-old partner, APA news agency said Wednesday.
    Police found the remains of the man in the couple's small vacation cottage in the eastern village of St Andrae am Zicksee Tuesday, swaddled in blankets with the dwelling reeking of decomposition odors.
    The woman had told a local doctor and neighbors who tried to contact the man since last March that he was abroad. APA said police were looking into whether the woman concealed his death in order to collect his pension payments.
    The dead man was separated from his wife, who had also tried to contact him, APA said.

    If indeed it turns out to be for pension, it's very sad

    How one can stand the smell of rotting corpse in their small cottage for a year? I'd be out within minutes, no pension check could keep me with a rotting man.

    Maybe she used some of the pension to buy gasmasks and tons of febreeze.

    Cafe Manager: Free lunch? Did you read the fine print stating it was an April Fool's joke.
    Patron: I read the same way I listen, I ignore the parts I don't agree with. I'm suing you for false advertising.
    Cafe Owner: Is our lawyer still working pro bono?

    this was a story line in desperate housewives, except she kept her husband in the freezer.
