File this story under the heading, “You Can’t Make This Crap Up”, and take a gander at what happened after a Florida woman decided to call the cops to get rid of her boyfriend.
…Mayo called deputies to remove her boyfriend, Robert Worden, according to the Sheriff’s Office. He had just gotten out of the county jail after serving 40 days for obtaining property with a worthless check. Mayo said she was scared of him. Worden, 34, said he just wanted to see his 7-year-old daughter.
The boyfriend agreed to leave the Palm Harbor apartment. But as Worden walked out with the deputies, he pointed to a damaged black 1997 Ford Ranger in the apartment complex parking lot and said he had a story to tell them.
Worden told deputies that Mayo borrowed a neighbor’s pickup on Feb. 4 to drive to Pinellas Park to buy marijuana, authorities said. That night, Worden told deputies, he said Mayo texted him that she had struck a deer.
Then, weeks later, Worden told deputies that Mayo broke down and told him that she had actually hit someone on 66th Street N. Mayo knew the person was dead, according to Worden, but was too scared of going to jail to stop.
First of all, the story begins and ends for me when I discovered the woman killed a pedestrian while on a “weed run”. Seriously? You’re a grown woman, with a child, what the hell are you doing still making “weed runs”? You couldn’t have believed that would end well.
And, here, the cruelest of ironies is stated in the fact that Mayo might have been able to avoid severe punishment had she simpley done the right thing and identified herself as the perpetrator because, unfortunately for the victim, it was discovered that she “…violated the driver’s right of way that night” and was responsible for the accident.
You know who the person I feel the sorriest for in this story happens to be, that woman’s 7-year old daughter. I never understand the thinking of those who bring children into this world, but then skirt responsibility for bringing said child up in as stable and loving an environment as possible. There are so many ways to avoid an unwanted/unplanned pregnancy. I know married people who do this all the time—I was married four-years before we had our first child—so unless a woman is violated, you cannot sell me on there not being a way to hold off on having a child.
What a waste.
This world would be more amusing if so much of what I see happening in it was not true. If it’s not some attention-seeking socialite gunning for her 15-minutes of fame—marrying and divorcing in under 90-days—then it’s the media pointing fingers at The Duggar Family for having too many children (children they take care of without any assistance from the state or anyone else), but giving a woman like Kate Gosselin all the attention and coverage her bad hair and poor priorities can stand.
Excuse the tone today, dear readers, but my ire is a little up. More positive vibrations tomorrow…or Friday—I promise.
