Two people who live in a large Morgan Hill home have been arrested on suspicion of holding a handyman hostage and forcing him to do home repairs.

(Thanks to Bill Moore, who says: "Don't say you never thought about doing it." Also thanks to The Perts.)

This is only the latest in a number of similar crimes reported across the country. In Manhattan, a couple was convicted for kidnapping a stockbroker and forcing him to manage their retirement assets; a cat in Illinois is facing charges for holding its owner in what was called "laser pointer slavery;" and in Michigan, society has been blamed for capturing unsuspecting retirees and forcing them to post sarcastic comments on humor blogs all day.

They pulled over at a gas station on Santa Teresa Blvd. and Cottle Road in South San Jose. The handyman escaped when the suspects left to pay for gas and snacks.

They both went into the store? Who was guarding the prisoner???

Investigators said the handyman performed work for De Jesus’ mother two months ago.

“The work wasn’t performed to the likes of the suspect’s relative at the time, and on top of that there was dispute over services rendered, the victim wasn’t paid entirely. That kind of boiled over into what occurred last night,”

Methinks there's another side to this story, and methinks it's a doozy.

YOU ever had to take the day off for the "2 hour window" that the repairman gets.

Totally justified!

Omni ~ We'll arrest society then.

Change it to "one fiery Scots-Irish woman holds one man hostage" and it's just "marriage" to me.

My wife mentioned this story. She asked if I could give this message to Dave. George W. Bush gave a speech Tuesday urging the GOP to be more inclusive to illegal immigrants. It appears that illegal immigrants have replaced the Jews as God's Chosen People. About every ten minutes, someone drives by Home Depot and chooses one of them.

Or Polish woman Smack..........

Normally it is the repair guys who hold us hostage without being present. "I'll be there at 9 on Tuesday" has a different meaning in some professions.

Does this mean I have to let the cable guy out of the basement? Because I need him a lot?

This weekend my carbon monoxide detectors went off and I called 911 for the fire department. Within three minutes after arrival, the fireman had called my furnace company. Furnace company response: We'll be there in 10 minutes.

Moral: When you call repair people, pretend to be a fire lieutenant.
