Daughter's FB post costs father $80k.

[url=http://www.slate.com/blogs/xx_factor/2014/02/28/dana_snay_s_facebook_post_cost_80_000_by_violating_confidentiality_agreement.html?google_editors_picks=true]Dad had settled an age discrimination suit with his former employer and one of the conditions of the settlement was that he and his wife not discuss the matter or amount with anyone.[/url] So what does his daughter do? She posts about the money and settlement on FB and her father loses the cash. So, other than standard things (such as food, medical care, schooling and other expenses) what is the most money that you've ever "cost your family" by doing something foolish?

    This is why I deactivated my Facebook. The stupidity you can find on there is likely greater than [i]most[/i] of b.net Because I always took a small bit of pride in buying my own things, I have always lived with a "you break it, you buy it" mentality, so I don't think I ever really broke anything expensive at all.

        • Around five hundred, funny story, I had said I wanted to "kill myself" in a sarcastic-don't really mean it sort of way. Someone in my PE class didn't notice that and took it literally... So the next day I got called in to the councilors' office about my grades. Bullshit right there. They questioned how I was living with my family and if I've ever felt sad and what not. So they called my mom and grandparents in and told them I was clinically depressed... So I had to be sent to mandatory therapy if I wanted to return to school... Therapist says I'm fine for a kid growing up and all, but still charges us...

        • If her father was the dean of the prep school and she's bragging about trips to Europe, 80k probably isn't much to them. Other than it being terrible that teens can brag about stuff like this, I just wanted to point out that they're most likely well-to-do. About $25, I think.

            Somewhere from $500 to $2000 in medical bills i'm not that sure. Since it was my first -blam!- up in a long time I think it was forgiven.

            I have broken at least 12 bones doing various stupid things. Man I was stupid tough; and that is nothing to be proud of.

          • I've put a spoon in a microwave, bricked the thing. Cost to the tune of £499 for a new one. Also lost 200 Euro while on holiday in France. So that's about ~£660 total. Ouch. That's £36 a year.

              5 large 16-yr-olds + an old wooden bed. 3 of us on one side playing xbox and 1 on the other side watching. 5th friend comes along, trips and falls on the far side of the bed and the whole thing collapses, crushing everything underneath. They left pretty quickly after that. 1 new bed and mattress to the tune of £500

                Probably when I left an old loaned Pentax film camera on a bus one day because I was getting a girl's number. It cost us $800 because we couldn't find it THE GIRL WASNT EVEN THAT GREAT. Probably could have hired a prostitute for that amount of money

                • I was 6 and smashed my moms taillight with a bar by mistake after she told me not to swing my bat around the car. She slapped me and grounded me for a month. I dunno how much that cost.

                  • I once left the freezer in the garage open because I was too scared to close it. (I was young and the garage creeped me the -blam!- out.) We ended up losing about $1000 worth of food including the elk my dad had just killed. He still hasn't forgotten about it and jokes that I owe him an elk every time I come to visit.
