Woman Countersues Son, Says He Should Be Whipped
CLEVELAND, Ga. (AP) _ A 78-year-old woman, sued by her son for the cost of repairing her pickup, filed a countersuit recommending he get the whipping ″I failed to give him as a child.″
Auto mechanic Kenneth Arrowood sued his mother July 6 in Magistrate Court, asking for $2,613 for her failure to pay for work he did on her truck.
″The plaintiff is indebted to the defendant for 40 years of services rendered as a mother, guidance counselor, cook, maid, banker, nurse, bail bondswoman, baby sitter, laundry worker (and) psychologist, all of which the plaintiff has not paid for,″ Hazel Arrowood responded in a countersuit.
″As a mother, and provided the law will allow me, I would publicly give my son the whipping that he so rightly needs and which I failed to give him as a child.″
If that is not allowed, Mrs. Arrowood said, the court should ″appoint a bailiff or other court official to apply to my son the hickory whipping.″
No court date was set.
