Cry-Baby of the Week
It's Friday, which means it's time to binge on scaredy-cat buttmunches again!
Cry-babies #1: Grand Island Schools
The incident: Some parents named their child "Hunter."
The appropriate response: Nothing.
The actual response: Hunter's school is allegedly telling him that he is no longer allowed to use his name.
Hunter is deaf. And, when he signs his name, it looks similar to the gesture for "gun":
According to a Facebook group started by Hunter's parents, officials from Grand Island School got in touch to tell them that Hunter would have to find an alternative way of signing his name, as the current gesture violates the school's weapon policy. The policy states that it is against school rules "to knowingly and voluntarily possess, handle, transmit or use any instrument in school, on school grounds or at school functions that is a firearm, weapon, or looks like a weapon…"
The school has issued a statement denying the claims.
Unrelated, but the MSN article about this states "Hunter has used the name since he was six months old"—um, what? They didn't name their baby for half a year?
Cry-babies #2: Geneen Green, Britley Green and Sherell Evans
The incident: A waitress at a Red Lobster refilled some women's water glasses.
The appropriate response: Saying "Thanks."
The actual response: The women beat the shit out of the waitress.
Geneen Green, Britley Green, and Sherell Evans (all pictured above) were arrested after allegedly beating the waitress with their hands and a menu. They claimed they did it because she refilled their water cups "too frequently."
Is there even such a thing as refilling a glass too frequently? It's not like you can refill a glass unless there is room in there to pour more water.
The three are currently being held in jail, awaiting trial.
