Ok, I have some distant family members I barely see who have a daughter and I just found out about what I think is a fucked up situation. I try not to get involved in this shit but then again I'd hate to have a white slavery case on my conscience if I could have stopped it. The daughter, 16, has online "boyfriend" who is 14 (wtf?) who lives across the country in California from the girl in Georgia. She has apparently communicated with him for some time, a few months at least. We find out that the plan is allegedly for he and his parents to FLY in for a "long weekend" here. They will rent a car, then they want to "pick her up" for a day so their kid can meet her and they can have a day on the town. This is not Miss America he's coming to see, either. But no mention of any plan to have them say, go out to dinner or eat over at the parents. Just pick the girl up. Tonight I find out the girls' stupid High Pitch Eric loathsomeness level mother hasn't even bothered to speak to the boys' parents. So, they're supposedly flying 3 people in from California, renting a car, and driving another hour and a half to the rural hellhole she lives to meet her and then immediately drive off again, all w/o having even spoken on the phone or emailed the girl's parents. Anybody here know parents who would take you on a $4,000 first date accross country? Especially when the grandmother googled and found their house, and it's a 1,000 ft home. The mother does a clerical job and the father works in construction doing electrical work (the lower end for electricians, he could be a "helper/apprentice and I know they don't make shit). They're Latino. Sounds like working class people. I assume that'd be quite a hit in their budget to fly cross country. There's more. The claim is that they plan to fly in, but DRIVE home. "drive what" her grandmother asks. "The rental car." I check online and the cheapest rate for that from ATL ito LAX dropoff is about $1500 plus about $500 in gas. Plus a few nights in hotels along the way. So maybe $2300. The grandmother asks why they would drive cross country for days to get back instead of flying. The answer she got "because it's so expensive to fly" and "the mother might want to buy a car she found in North Carolina". Of course North Carolina is about 4 hours away. And they're already planning a trip into Atlanta, and to, get this shit, stupid Calloway Gardens, something that would bore the fuck out of any teenager,, which is 6 hours round trip from her home. All this is happening on a 3 day weekend, mind you. She gave her mother the names of the parents, and their job descriptions. The grandmother on her own took that and looked them up and the names match for location, jobs, etc. But what if this is just someone using some fucker in California's identity? So, as you can imagine, I smell a huge stinking festering rat here. My question is, what the fuck is up with this shit? I KNOW something is up, but what? One thing that occured to me is that you can fly into an airport but you can't fly out of one with a teenaged girl against her will. Or that's the subject of an Amber alert. So, I call on the collective wisdom of hundreds of internet freaks and those exposed to internet freaks. What's up wit dis?
