A couple of days ago I wrote an article about a whacked out, drug crazed dad who committed the ultimate offense of improperly recycling his kids. Today I bring you the heartwarming story of the coolest, most awesome mom I have read about in a long time:
Jane Hambleton has dubbed herself the “meanest mom on the planet.” After finding alcohol in her son’s car, she decided to sell the car and share her 19-year-old’s misdeed with everyone — by placing an ad in the local newspaper.
The ad reads: “OLDS 1999 Intrigue. Totally uncool parents who obviously don’t love teenage son, selling his car. Only driven for three weeks before snoopy mom who needs to get a life found booze under front seat. $3,700/offer. Call meanest mom on the planet.”
The only critic is her son, who Hambleton says is “very, very unhappy” with the ad and claims the alcohol was left by a passenger.
Hambleton believes her son but has decided mercy isn’t the best policy in this case. She says she set two rules when she bought the car at Thanksgiving: No booze, and always keep it locked. – [Yahoo/AP]
You know what? This lady seems to understands what parenting is all about. And that’s all I got to say ’bout that. ‘Cept this. Go mom!
