In the competition for worst Christmas ever, it is a tie this year between Robert Schoff who got stuck in his sepic tank or Roger Goswell who put his dead wife under his Christmas tree or Shawn Johnson who paid for opening his present early by being stabbed by his wife.
Robert Schoff, 77, was merely trying to unblock his septic tank on Christmas Eve when he got stuck upside down in the opening of his septic tank with his head inside and his feet kicking in the air. In the understatement of a lifetime, Schoff compalined that “it was the worst Christmas Eve I’ve ever had.”
He was eventually saved by his wife. For retired businessman, Roger Goswell, it was his wife that was the apparent problem. Goswell beat his wife, Susan Goswell, 63, a retired teacher, to death with a golf club and then placed her neatly under their Christmas tree. He then ran Smart car into a tree, killing himself.
Then again there is Christmas at the Johnsons. In Wyo., Misty Johnson, 34, was arrested and charged with aggravated assault and battery, a felony, and misdemeanor domestic battery. Shawn Johnson told police that his wife started arguing with him over his opening a Christmas present. For that story, click here
