I take my salsa very seriously. I like it hot – but not too hot, flavorful – but not overpowering, and a little sweet. Blame it on my roots, but I put that shit on everything. Eggs, tacos, steak, you name it. When I first saw this story of a woman who stabbed her boyfriend because he ate all the salsa, my first thought was maybe she went a little too far. My second thought was maybe he shouldn’t have eaten all the goddamn salsa.
The incident took place in March of this year, when 50-year-old Phyllis Jefferson of Akron, Ohio first started yelling at her 61-year-old boyfriend, Ronnie Buckner, for finishing all the salsa. Things quickly escalated when Jefferson picked up a pen and stabbed Buckner in the pelvis. She then grabbed a small kitchen knife and stabbed her boyfriend in the stomach.
According to Jefferson’s attorney, the stabbing wasn’t completely salsa related. She says she also stabbed her boyfriend because she had just learned he was a registered sex offender. I guess the salsa was just the straw that broke the camel’s back.
Jefferson pleaded guilty to aggravated assault on Monday, and she’ll be sentenced later on. No word on whether Buckner ever replaced the salsa. .
