Parent of the Year


A mother in South Florida staged multiple fake car accidents in order to scam insurance companies, but she had her kids in the car during these “accidents” in order to get more money.  She made her children lie to the insurance companies and medical staff and even had them undergo unnecessary chiropractic treatments. Ultimately the woman was sentenced for 6.5 years in federal prison and had to pay over $71,000 in fines and restitution.

Slacker remembers when, as a child, his mom would go into bars, usually with him in tow, to retrieve his father.

What have your parents done in order to receive the “parent of the year” award?

I would have to give this award to my own mom.  About 11 years ago my mom, sister, and I went on vacation to Greece and while staying in one of those cramped, sad European hotel rooms my sister (who is five years older than me) somehow locked herself in the bathroom.  Eventually my mom called the main desk for some help but if as far as I’m concerned there was a good deal of laughing and joking in the process… my sister didn’t laugh that much.  Needless to say my sister received a lot of ribbing during the remainder of the trip.

Stay classy!
