Have you all heard about that Aunt who SUED her nephew for $127,000?
The article is here.
If you are in no mood to read, I'll sum it up for you: lady showed up at her nephew's birthday when he was turning 8. He was excited! My aunt is here, yay! He gave her a rather crazy hug. I know those kinds of hugs. Sometimes my daughter likes to fling herself right on me.
Well. This lady, named Jennifer, broke her wrist because of the hug. I mean, yes, that stinks. But children can behave like wild creatures.
Jennifer whines that she lives in Manhattan. It's crowded there. The broken wrist made things difficult. Also, and this is where it gets horribly ridiculous, she was at a party and claims "it was difficult to hold my hors d'oeuvre plate."
She says she's really suing because her insurance wouldn't pay for the medical bills. But. Why go after the tiny nephew?! PLUS...this story get WORSE if you can believe it. The boy's mother died. So he had to deal with that AND deal with the fact that a family member was suing him. Poor kid.
Naturally, Jennifer is getting zip. The court probably was like, "Seriously?" and awarded her nothing.
And now Jennifer is dubbed the "worst aunt ever" and most likely doesn't have many friends left.
Here's some advice: don't sue a child.
