Did anyone see the news report about the dead girl's parent that got a letter about her poor attendance?
"I screamed when I first saw it. If they want her to attend that much I'll take Megan's remains. It's disgusting.
"Megan doesn't go to that school any more. She's been dead for two months now so it's not surprising her attendance is low.
Screamed? Disgusted??? Get a grip! She goes on to say that she was "horrified" at the "incompetence" of the school whose computer software compiled automated letters to parents of children whose attendance isn't up to scratch!
Get used to it. My mother-in-law still gets regular mail and phonecalls for her husband who died nearly a decade ago! If she was disgusted and horrified every time one arrived, well, she spend most of her life disgusted or horrified!
I can't help thinking that this whole news story is a precursor to a claim for "some sort of compensation": what happened to a bit of basic human understanding? A phone call to the school pointing out their mistake would have caused ample embarassment to all concerned without the need to drag the whole thing through the press.
Or is this just another case of a couple of feckwits, so obsessed with celebrity that they don't mind that their daughter's 15 minutes of fame came 15 minutes too late.
Ridiculous. And is it just me, or does the father sound like Les Battersby?
