There are many warning signs to look for in a crazy current or ex-girlfriend. Some quite obvious, like, she revels in fire, or she cries a lot during Kevin Hart comedies. Some less obvious, like, she hates clutter. Oh, sure, you may think many women despise a mess, but I’m talking about a woman who leaves her decade long job as a teacher in her 30’s to build a business out of organizing people’s clutter. Jennifer Rudemyer, 39, doubled down on the crazy signs by dating a much older doctor. It was all right there.
Apparently her older boyfriend in Hilton Head, SC, Gaston Perez, a local doctor, caught the warning signs and broke up with his former middle school teacher blonde girlfriend, on multiple occasions. Apparently the breakups didn’t take, or until the most recent one which included a restraining order, when Rudemyer decided to come back to his place with a gun and end them both. The rational response to being unhappy with the man in your life.
By some miracle, Perez survived multiple gunshots to the torso and hands held up in defensive posture as his ex-girlfriend sprayed him with bullets, before turning the gun on herself with some greater amount of lethal force. She died. Perez made it to the hospital and is expected to live, despite the multiple gun shot wounds.
Now, this could be a cautionary tale for a likely divorced older guy with a good job and some cash to feel his oats again with a younger hot trophy girlfriend or wife. But let’s be honest, men aren’t going to cease this longstanding tradition simply because the occasional younger lady-friend goes of the deep end with a pistol, or perhaps poison in the tea. Men designed a game plan thousands of years ago and they’re sticking with it.
