War of the Roses

If someone calls you and offers you free flowers, delivered to the love of your life, you should probably hang

up, call the love of your life, and confess your sins.

Almost every Tuesday and Thursday, at 7:20 am PST, Jackie and Bender host a bit they call War of the Roses.  Sometimes it's sad, sometimes it's scary, and sometimes it's funny, but it is always entertaining.

Here's how it works.  If you suspect your significant other is cheating on you, all you have to do is talk to them.  What a novel idea, communicate.  Oh, wait, you don't communicate, you don't know what problem resolution is, you don't know the first thing about relationships.  Instead of communicating, you decide to air your dirty laundry on a radio show.  You visit Jackie and Bender's web site, share a little information with them, and then let them make a call...badabing, badaboom, your cheating significant other confesses everything on the radio for the whole world to hear; courtesy of iHeartRADIO of course.

If you've never listened to the show, give it a try.  Jackie and Bender and all of their support staff put on a great show full of laughs and interesting guests.  I'm at work during the War of the Roses bit, so I started listening on my iPhone using the iHeartRADIO app.

My favorite War of the Roses was a story about a man dating a woman for a year, and never being invited to her home.  She told her "boyfriend" that her home was a complicated place because she and her husband lived there together before he died while serving in the military in Iraq, and she wasn't ready to let anyone new in the house.  Turns out her husband was not dead.  In fact, he was alive, healthy, and living with her in their home.  Once she realized what was happening, she actually thought it was OK to turn things around and ask her "boyfriend" why he was doing this to her.

Some of the stories are truly unbelievable, seriously, they sound scripted.  It doesn't really matter though because the show is entertaining.  If you've never listened to the bit, give it a try.  Today, they've got 720 past episodes up on their web site, and they add two more almost every week.
