Now that's just tacky...

/Sue the idiot for at least half
 
2004-12-22 05:34:59 PM  
Gee whiz, it's no wonder that he didn't want to marry her.
 
2004-12-22 10:56:40 PM  
Wow, $6,900 for 1,000 guests = $6.90 per guest. Think an American chick would go for that kind of arrangement? What would that reception be like? Someone should PS that reception.

/Taco Bell, anyone?
 
2004-12-22 10:57:10 PM  
she attended her wedding anyway? wtf.
 
2004-12-22 10:57:44 PM  
I concur, fish-sticks
 
2004-12-22 10:57:49 PM  
Hasmawi, who went into hiding shortly before the SMS incident, could also loose his job.

The same should be said for the proofreader.
 
2004-12-22 10:58:35 PM  
what a goon-biatch. He dumped you, dont go suing cause he broke a commitment to make a commitment.
 
2004-12-22 11:00:31 PM  
I was hoping that this was a story of she and the MPAA suing the SMS provider.

I was just thinking about the couple that got married at thw White Castle. 6.90 per guest would be a heck of a lot of Slyders and fries. Great party, but I wouldn't want to be in the limo later that night. If theres no sunroof combustion would be a real danger.

what is SMS?
 
2004-12-22 11:01:23 PM  
Man, better watch out w/ those promise rings/friendship bracelets... this could be a bad precedent...
 
2004-12-22 11:02:01 PM  
Wait, so the Bride's family foots the bill while the groom walks and you're calling her a biatch? Wow... He failed to act honorably by calling off the wedding in due time, or at least paying for it all, and should have to face the consequences of his actions.
 
2004-12-22 11:03:15 PM  
i dumped my ex by SMS... i felt like such an ass.

so i phoned her to confirm. something makes me think it wasn't the right thing to do
 
2004-12-22 11:03:17 PM  
That kinda reminds me when I broke up with this g/f back in 1998 by e-mail. The times-they-area-changin', that's for sure.

GIS for SMS:



Oddly enough, both Japanese.
 
2004-12-22 11:08:34 PM  
I had a decent wedding. Nothing fancy. $30,000.00

Who gives a rats arse about her $6900.

The Blues Brothers theme is alive and well tonight. First police cars, now jilted exes. Now we just need something about the Cook County Tax office to complete the hat trick.
 
2004-12-22 11:09:47 PM  
...But Norlida decided to put on a brave face, and her wedding dress, on Friday night and carried on with the traditional Malay wedding feast for 1000 guests at her family home although her fiance did not turn up...

farkIN PSYCHO

One US dollar converts to about 3.8 Malaysian dollars. American dollars are worth A LOT more in almost everywhere but Europe.
 
2004-12-22 11:10:23 PM  
Probably a lot of money in Malaysian funds.

And I'm guessing SMS is some sort of instant text message, but I've never heard of it.
 
2004-12-22 11:12:45 PM  
SMS = text messaging via cell phone.

/just in case you don't know
 
2004-12-22 11:13:40 PM  
sms is sending text messages via cell phone... your phone works like a beeper. it receives and it can send text messages too

/for those who don't know
 
2004-12-22 11:13:54 PM  
SMS = rest-of-the-world term meaning "short message service".

otherwise known as text messages.

/my cell phone doesn't support text messages
//it doesn't support digital networks either
 
2004-12-22 11:14:02 PM  
cell phones are evil.
 
2004-12-22 11:14:11 PM  
i think that dude made a good call-- better now than after the wedding... the chick sounds farkin' psychotic. I bet she railroaded him into the engagement too....
 
2004-12-22 11:14:58 PM  
hahhahahaahahahahaahahahahahhaahahahaahaaaaa!
 
2004-12-22 11:16:08 PM  
SMS = Sorry, Marriage Sux

Jilted SMS bride to sue
December 22, 2004

A JJILTED Malaysian bride is suing her groom for damages after he called off their wedding with a mobile phone text message just hours before the ceremony, media reports said today.


She was j-j-jilted? Oh no! Her brother K-K-Ken is c-c-coming to k-k-kill me!

/fish called wanda

Hasmawi, who went into hiding shortly before the SMS incident, could also loose his job.

Now THAT'S assinine! He could lose his JOB for changing his mind?

I realize that a text message is a bad way to break up (if that is all he did, mind you. The article states that he broke up with her a few days before the SMS. He probably sent the text because she hadn't told her family, and he thought that was weird.), but to LOSE YOUR JOB? That's a little extreme.

I wish I had called off my wedding.
 
2004-12-22 11:23:55 PM  
All she needs to do is put the cellphone on vibrate and she doesn't need to marry. All she needs to do is continually phone herself...
 
2004-12-22 11:25:05 PM  
deathazre, rest of the world except the USA and New Zealand. We lonesome lot.
 
2004-12-22 11:26:51 PM  
how can anyone not know what sms is? and how, in 2004, can you have a cellphone that doesn't support them?!

i just ripped this off the net:

" How many SMS messages are sent each month in the UK?
:: 1.38 billion
(Mobile Data Association, June 2002) "

that's per month... only in the uk....

does america not have text messaging?!
 
2004-12-22 11:27:23 PM  
asinine

Sure. We call it "text messaging." Imagine that.

i've never heard the term SMS used in place of text message
 
2004-12-22 11:35:15 PM  
now, some legal type tell me what, exactly, this lady is suing for.........
 
2004-12-22 11:36:03 PM  
Erom: i've never heard the term SMS used in place of text message

I'm familar with the term but never heard it used in the US..just text messaging
 
2004-12-22 11:39:18 PM  
OMG LOL I H8 U C YA L8R
 
2004-12-22 11:40:04 PM  
Crazy rest of the world and their silly non-American terms.

REDARMYVODKA:

Well, in some jurisdictions, it's called "breach of promise to marry," which is based on a breach of contract theory. In New York, if you are a lawyer who brings such a lawsuit, your arse is subject to serious sanctions for clogging up the court system with a no-longer-recognized cause of action.
 
2004-12-22 11:41:49 PM  
most people just say text.

this article is very important though, so they took out all the stops.
 
2004-12-22 11:41:52 PM  
Typically the only people that use SMS or text messaging in the US are those under 18. Everyone else is too busy yelling into their phones.

Breach? Their is no contract till you say I do, till then all bets are off
 
2004-12-22 11:43:32 PM  
In the US, we don't have petrol either, we have gas. SMS that in your pipe and smoke it.
 
2004-12-22 11:44:50 PM  
Yep. But you can't very easily sue to get your ring back, either.
