“Uh, You Guys Go Ahead . . . I’ll Just Wait Here”

Friday, October 15th, 2010

Yonni Barrios, 50, was a Chilean miner who had mixed feelings about being rescued the other day.  He knew loved ones would be allowed to rush up to the capsule when it emerged – but he didn’t know if he would be greeted by his wife of 28-years – or his longtime mistress.

When the Mrs. and the Miss found about each other in the mine’s dining center, they  had to be pulled apart.  Ironically, it was the Miss who informed the Mrs. about the mining accident weeks before.

Barrios was over his head in conflict but finally made a decision.  He told rescuers he wanted to be greeted by his mistress.

When the Mrs. learned this unhappy news, she left the mine site and asked for a divorce.  It seems the mistress got the miner – and she got the shaft.
