BM's Parents Scammed Out of Thousands. I'm Definitely Evil Because I Find This Hilarious.
I got home from work today and DH started telling me this story...and I was near tears laughing so hard by the time he was done. He was near tears, too, of course. Oh my word.
So, apparently sometime this afternoon, BM started texting him (in a group text with OSD and YSD) in a panic, asking if anyone had heard from SS lately...and she was so, so, so, so worried about him! Has anyone heard from him since Tuesday?!?!
DH had a momentary fear and then paused for a moment and asked what was up. Told her he'd texted with SS this morning.
BM's parents got scammed by people claiming SS was in prison in Florida. They wired 8K to these people yesterday and sent BM a text to ask if SS had gotten out of prison and gotten in touch with her yet.
I absolutely should NOT find this as hysterical as I do. It's just...I guess the idiocy and tendency to panic that BM has really is genetic. Also...BM asks us and DH's parents for money all the time when she's panicking about this thing or that thing...always claiming her parents are destitute and can't possibly help, which we know isn't true. Her whole family just thinks we should provide everything for some reason.
Kinda feeling like this is a bit of karma. lol.
