My favorite parents of 2012 are back in the news.
Jill and Kent Easter pleaded not guilty in court yesterday.
These are the parents that highlight modern parenting better than all others today:
They felt their little son's self esteem was not being honored by a volunteer lunch lady quite as much as the little entitled fella deserved.
So they spoke to her.
She didn't share their high esteem of Little Lord Fauntleroy as Jill and Kent Easter felt he deserved, so they did what all young, intelligent, fair-minded American lawyers do:
They filed a lawsuit against her.
This is the ultimate bullying; using their profession to intimidate. Very nice.
The judge tossed it.
In the few minutes where lunch lady, hall monitor, lady saw his Little Lordship, she did not properly bow before him...again.
So, Jill and Kent, dutiful parents who don't view Little Lord as a projection of their own worth, took her to court again...
the judge tossed the lawsuit out..again.
What's a few millions against a volunteer mom who won't show the proper obeisance due the high standing of a lawyer's child?
The two scheming lawyers now needed to show the judge the error of his ways, so they put together their obviously gifted intellects and can up with an idea that rivals rocket science:
They planted drugs in her car and made an fake call to 911. 'This is...well...my name is....Concerned Citizen....and, well, you should probably know...." Percocet, vicodin, and marijuana. Hmm. I wonder if...
The language would easily show deception. He even reported that he could see the drugs in plain sight!
"The drugs were sitting on the passenger seat." Remember our teaching on inanimate objects "sitting, standing, lying....and so on" with passive language?
It did not take long for police to put it together: Volunteer hallway mom wasn't out driving under the influence as video and witnesses easily proves so who, who....hmmmmm, who would so hate a volunteer door opening mom so much as to call 911, yet be stupid enough to think they would not be caught?
Answer: two lawyers.
The parents of His Lordship were promptly arrested.
Imagine how their clients feel.
