The wrong zipper / Lisa Christensen

The wrong zipper / Lisa Christensen

Dates: 1984

Report by Utah State University folklore student Lisa Christensen, who heard the story from Rondo Christensen two years before recording. According to the story, a husband's help with a zipper ruins his wife's dress and stokes an argument. That afternoon, she mistakes a neighbor fixing their car for him, sees his pants zipper down, and abruptly zips it. The neighbor soon turns up with a startle-induced head injury.
