Here’s a great blog to boost your giving spirit right before Christmas. Stories like this almost make you have to admit that maybe Scrooge had it right after all.
Kelly Marshall is a 32-year-old mother of five (with four separate baby-daddies) who has never worked a day in her life. She receives more than $44,000 a year in welfare benefits to cover housing costs and the general expenses it takes to raise five children. But instead of using that money to pay for food, clothing, and shelter for her rather large family, she has decided to spend that money on making herself more attractive.
Marshall recently spent almost $7,000 of her welfare money on breast augmentation to take her from a 34A to a 34DD. She even had enough welfare money left to take vacations to Tenerife, Cyprus, and Magaluf (twice) this year. Each of those vacations cost her about $3,000. Somehow, I doubt she’ll get my vote for Mother of the Year.
When asked about the grossly irresponsible use of her welfare money, Marshall responded, “I have wanted a boob job since I was a teen, but it wasn’t until I had five children that I was able to afford it – with all the benefits I get. Now I hope to have liposuction, a tummy tuck, and regular BOTOX.”
That sounds pretty expensive. I guess she may need to save up her welfare checks for a couple more years before she can go for all that plastic surgery. Or perhaps she’ll just start wearing low-cut dresses that accentuate her brand-spanking-new DD cleavage so that she can attract another baby-daddy. I’ll bet the additional welfare funds she receives for baby #6 will more than cover her next round of procedures. I mean, it’s not like she’s going to spend the money on diapers or baby formula.
But don’t get too irate as you read this blog. She’s not wasting your heard-earned tax dollars. Kelly Marshall is draining the British welfare system.
I don’t understand how these plastic surgeons don’t look into their patients’ finances before moving forward with the procedure. It seems pretty unethical to operate on a woman who has 5 kids, no job, and collects welfare. I’m just sayin’.
Beyond the horror of the fact that her children do without their essentials so that she can have bigger breasts, there is another serious problem with this situation. What kind of message does this send to her 5 kids? I would imagine that they are doomed to grow up to be lazy monsters who will also prey on the welfare system to get whatever it is that they want out of life. That is, if they make it to adulthood without some serious disease stemming from malnourishment.
