Ladies, how would you like to come home from work and find your entire home flattened with belongs included? It happened in New York as man rents excavator and demolishes home.

A New York man who rented a bulldozer from a local construction company and demolished the house that he lived in with his wife, whose name is on the deed and who did not know about the razing, he did it because it was dilapidated and needed to come down.

The foundation of his Middletown home was crumbling from years of disrepair, 48-year-old James Rhein said Tuesday afternoon, and he tried to get a permit to demolish it himself Monday but couldn't because the office he needed to visit was closed due to the federal holiday.

He didn't turn off the utilities, have the proper permits or tell his wife, who owned the home, but said "Shes good with it". Not true.
