    Default Man posts his living mother's obituary in order to get bereavement leave

    WOW....people really can't see one moment ahead to see their actions have consequences

    BROOKVILLE, Pa. (AP) Authorities in northwestern Pennsylvania say a man published an obituary for his living mother in a ploy to get paid bereavement time off from work.

    Relatives called The Jeffersonian Democrat newspaper in Brookville after the obit appeared to report the woman was actually alive and well. The woman herself then visited the paper. Brookville police charged 45-year-old Scott Bennett on Tuesday with disorderly conduct.
    Democrat editor Randy Bartley says he accepted the obituary in good faith after being unable to confirm the funeral arrangements at press time. He told The Derrick newspaper on Friday that the woman was very understanding.
    Police Chief Ken Dworek says Bennett wrote up the memorial notice because he didn't want to get fired for taking time off.
    The Associated Press couldn't reach Bennett.

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    It was deer season.

We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.
