Girl costs father $80,000 with 'SUCK IT' Facebook post
The former head of a private preparatory school in Miami, Florida is out an $80,000 discrimination settlement after his daughter boasted about it on Facebook.Okay, for starters, I question whether this is a lawsuit with basis. The school settled, which could indicate it was legit, or it could be that they wanted to avoid a lawsuit and attendant media attention. I'm guessing that the latter is more likely, given what happened next...
Patrick Snay, 69 -- the former head of Guillver Preparatory School -- filed an age discrimination complaint when his 2010-11 contract wasn't renewed.
But before the ink could dry on the deal, Snay's daughter took to Facebook, boasting, "Mama and Papa Snay won the case against Gulliver. Gulliver is now officially paying for my vacation to Europe this summer. SUCK IT."Oopsie...
Within a few days, Gulliver Schools sent a letter to Snay's attorneys stating that Snay had broken a confidentiality agreement and that he would not be receiving the $80,000 settlement.
Now, I don't know. Maybe the lawsuit had merit. Maybe Snay really was fired without cause. Having an idiot for a daughter isn't grounds for termination. But given the tenor of the conversation, I'm inclined to think that, maybe, the school was divesting of what it deemed to be a liability.
Everyone wins here. The school doesn't have to pay in what is most likely a bogus settlement. The girl doesn't get her European vacation (since the school's not paying). And the parents lose $80K because they couldn't help but gloat to their spoiled brat of a daughter. Looks like everyone learns a lesson, don't they?
It kinda makes you wonder what the father's current employer thinks of this whole situation, doesn't it?
That is all.
