What would you do to get paid time off from work? If publishing an obituary for your living mother was what you were thinking, then you and 45-year-old Scott Bennett have something in common. That's right, apparently getting paid bereavement time off from work was so important to Bennett that he wrote up a fake obituary for his no-so-dead mother.
Unfortunately for Bennett, relatives saw the obituary in the paper and reported the falsehood. Bennett has since been charged with disorderly conduct.
