A wealthy socialite couple mistakenly buys kindergarten finger painting during a silent auction at their children’s school for $50,0000, and they’re really not happy about it!
Wait that kid looks too happy! I said…THEY’RE REALLY NOT HAPPY ABOUT IT!!!
So apparently the parents really wanted the “masterpiece”. Their son, Hudson’s class painted it. So, in their absence, they instructed the school to make sure they got the painting, (of course, and they should get everything they want!!!!) but they believed that the maximum bid would be $3,000. Much to their dismay, the school allegedly had a teacher bid against the family and drove the price up!! Naturally, a lawsuit was filed against the school. THESE POOR PEOPLE…UM…I MEAN REALLY RICH PEOPLE…. WERE DAMAGED AND SOMEBODY MUST PAY!!!! OH THE HUMANITY!!!!!!
The Heinemanns are so appalled by the school’s behavior that they pulled Hudson out and are now demanding compensation for all of the attending costs — including $20,000 tuition to a new school, forfeited class fees for his little sister, and Hudson’s $60,000-a-year chauffeur, whose job they want to save.
[Sniff-sniff] Of course, of course the chauffeur….they can’t lose the chauffeur! They might have to [gasp] drive their children to school themselves!!!!
But there’s more to this heart wrenching story. I know, you can hardly hold yourself together already…but yes…there’s more…..
Little Hudson Cornelius was already an unhappy kindergartner before this incident, according to a lawsuit filed recently in Manhattan Supreme Court.
The tousled-haired tyke was “underappreciated” there.
“Plaintiff’s son was consistently left out of school exhibits and films . . . and was made to go last at nearly everything,” the lawsuit states.
“On one occasion, plaintiffs’ 5-year-old son was relegated to the role of ‘door-holder’ and ordered to hold the door for all of the other students.”
O.M.G.!!! What kind of “school” is this??? That family forked out their hard-inherited, money for special treatment for their special offspring Hudson.
I really can’t say anymore about this, I’m too broken up. I’ll close with a list of their pain, suffering and damages. Keep kleenex box handy if you plan to read any further…
They say they “were forced to endure humiliation and emotional damages” as a result of the auction debacle. They’re seeking $415,900 in damages, including the following:
a. Tuition to a new school- $20,000;
b. Forfeiting deposit paid to Defendant School for the following school year- $5,000;
c. Maintaining the employment of a family driver that is no longer needed due to the relocation- $60,000;
d. Continuing the employment of the family housekeeper that is no longer needed due to the relocation- $1,200 per week
I can’t imagine what they’re going through…..I mean I really can’t imagine…
