It was a scene straight from a movie set.

A woman was lured to the house she shared with her soon-to-be ex-husband. Once inside, he started attacking her.

She tried to defend herself with her purse. But it was no use against a man armed with a baseball bat.

As she lay bloodied and battered, her thoughts were of the children growing up without her.

He was about to deliver the coup de grâce when the woman unexpectedly giggled causing him to stop.

“Cut!” the director yelled, undoubtedly annoyed. “What’s the matter with you people? We don’t have all day.”
