This week's Asshat goes to Joanne DeLoach!!
Dorky Dad was on Asshat patrol and brought this gem to my attention. Thanks, Dad!
DeLoach's daughter was working a 12-hour shift, and left her 9-year old daughter in Grandma's care. It just happened to be Grandma Joanne's 47th birthday, and babysitting simply wasn't in the evening's plan.
So what's a granny to do? Give the kid a couple of glasses of gin, hoping she'll pass out so you can leave her alone and get on with your own partay?
The girl's mother found her daughter alone after her shift, and called police. 8 hours after drinking the gin, a breathalizer showed the girl's alcohol levels to be almost half that of the legal limit for driving.
Good God. With a parent like DeLoach, it's amazing her own daughter made it to adulthood alive.
