I Pit An Anonymous Pair of Poor Excuses for Parents
As some of you know, I work switchboard for our county welfare office. I just got off a phone call from a young woman who informed her parents yesterday that she is pregnant (she sounded like a teen to me). The parent have given her till Christmas to get out of the house.
I just spent 10 minutes giving advice on applying for welfare and looking up emergency shelter numbers for this poor girl. I am the only one available to do that right now since the office is at lunch. It broke my heart.
What kind of parent throws their child out in the snow ON CHRISTMAS? Merry fucking Christmas to you, too, you pair of Grinches! Your daughter is being tossed out on her ear on what is, traditionally, the very day on which peace and goodwill toward mankind is supposed to be celebrated. What the hell are you thinking?!
I hope you spend Christmas night wondering where your daughter is, and if she's safe, and if her unborn child is safe. I hope you spend the next nine months wondering how she's doing, and if you'll ever see your grandchild. I hope you feel all the guilt you should feel, but I hold out faint hope that will happen.
