Kwok Wai-ming loved Po Shiu-fong so much that he forgave her when she poked her finger in his eye -- the left one -- and blinded him. That unfortunate incident happened six years ago. It was all in the past.

Was. Until Po accused Kwok of infidelity.

Reuters reports:
During the row, Po stabbed a plastic chopstick into his left eye, which she had already blinded six years ago when she poked it with her finger.

"Po became hysterical when she saw the wound and mopped it with a towel. The pair then went to bed," the paper said.

"The next morning they had another argument in which she grabbed a chopstick and stabbed Kwok's right eye," it said.

Two days later, he sought medical treatment and filed a police report against Po, whom he had dated since 1993.

The paper said he didn't report the attack six years ago, telling the court his silence was "a love sacrifice."
Blind in one eye? A love sacrifice. Blind in both eyes? Now Kwok can finally see. Po is off to jail for six months. Kwok says he can't -- won't -- forgive her.

This is why I've never eaten with chopsticks. If you're not careful, you could put someone's eye out with those things.

Not to call the guy a wimp or anything, but how does one get an eye poked out? I mean, seriously...would't that be hard?
