Kinda interesting, though, how they edited that story. The original (un-illustrated) version and the illustrated version are slightly different. One noticeable difference: In the original, he describes himself as “. . . a very big dude, covered in tattoos and a beard . . .” — but in the picture-version, he doesn’t mention the tattoos, and he is drawn without any tats. There are other minor changes in the wording here and there too.
I read Not Always Right Right regularly. And from the comments, I get the idea that a certain percentage of the stories are made up, either by te submitters or by the editors/site operators. That’s a little disappointing. On the other hand, perhaps it means people aren’t always as stupid as the site would have you believe.
And regarding that; this was the single mother of a seriously ill little girl. Presumably she had other things to do in the interim.
