I'm going to show this story to everybody who brings up the whole "who will take care of you when you're older" bullshiat when I say I'm not having kids.

what_now: The children, who are grown, believed the man was taking care of the couple's needs, he said.

Seriously? Your 76 year old father has a history of heart disease and your mother has Alzheimer's and you don't check on them for a month?


Maybe they were terrible parents.

Resident Muslim: Nothing 'weird' about this.
This has Sad written all over it.


Came here to say this.  Stories like these are the collateral damage of our culture which tries to forget the elderly.

Not weird, just not uncommon over time.
With the volume of people that there in the nation (much less the world)
And the diverse ways of them living.

Sooner or later, someone is going to fall through the cracks.
While you attempt to prevent it, it's going to happen.

It's just that people get upset because it's not the "romantic", "preferred" or "ideal" way for things to happen.
But it does...

I'm sorry for the dogs, the lady will live  (and will be oblivious to it)
It's the offspring that we have to wonder about.
But people get distracted by things...and we don't know their relationship.
So in this case, I'll give them the benefit of the doubt.

For example, I'm in contact with my mother often...and she lives with my sister, so I'd know immediately.
My father, we don't have as close a relationship...he's far away...and he lives with no family.
So who know how long before we found out with him, in comparison to her.

Life (and death) can be inconvenient.

strangeluck: Bunny Deville:

Here are a couple of things that bother me about this story. basically, these two sentences: "They looked in the window and saw that the man was obviously dead" along with "two chihuahuas had died of starvation in the room with the dead man."

So what's not being said here is that those poor chihuahuas probably ate part of the dead guy.

Maybe they didn't and that's why they starved.


That's my take on it too. Poor dogs. Just for the record, if I die and you're starving go ahead and eat me. It's not like I'll notice. The same goes for your carnivorous pet. People have entirely too much reverence for corpses.

Another thing that bugs me: chihuahuas are barky yappy dogs, so was the lady deaf? How big was the house? There's no way a dog would just lay down in bedroom and starve quietly.
