Sorry, No Sympathy

Nope, not a bit of compassion going out from North Texas this morning. What do you think about this tale of woe?

Prom Refund Denied for Boyfriend Burial

Are you as skeptical about this as I am?

Some points to ponder:

  • Where does a 17-year old girl get $1200 for a prom dress in the first place? 
  • If she has that much, then she's from a well-to-do family.
  • If she doesn't have that much, then the outraged mother does.
  • Where are the young man's parents and family?
  • Since when does a girlfriend have to fund the funeral?
  • Who is monitoring the contributions made through that Facebook page? 
  • What are the details of the unfortunate accident? Single car? Time of day? Causative factor?
Sorry, but this sensational story stinks up the joint on an otherwise nice Sunday morn.

I agree, Ed. When I first read it, I simply concluded that someone no longer has a prom date and just doesn't want to go now.
