Malignant Lies!

After a Greenville, N.H., woman opened a sympathy card her husband’s employer sent, she called the company to reveal the news: she wasn’t dead. Over the roughly two years in which he’d told co-workers (but not her) about his wife’s “battle with cancer,” Scott Wellington, 31, received weeks of extra vacation time and thousands of dollars in donations. “We were extra sympathetic to this guy,” said Dan Villemaire, president of C&M Machine Co. “My father, Paul, the CEO of this company, is a cancer survivor. This really pulled at our heartstrings.” Wellington quit after his wife’s supposed death, and has been charged with theft by deception — his wife doesn’t have cancer, and never did.

A THOUGHT: Wellington’s father predicts he’ll ask for mercy because he’s an orphan.

About Chase Morgan
Chase Morgan is just your average, ordinary All-American writer. Chase began writing several years ago, but never published anything until the "Are You Friggen' Kidding Me?" blog launched in August of 2009. Chase simply got tired of standing around and just observing all of the craziness in the world, so this anxious writer sat down and wrote the first "Are YOu Friggen' Kidding Me?" article on August 19th, 2009. Now, any time something makes Chase say, "Are You Friggen' Kidding Me?", the issue get's transformed into an article. Chase is currently single, homeless and living under a bridge in South Florida.
