Really funny if the picture was all that was done , but making herself uncontactable for a week? that's just irresponsible and mean

That is funny! Of course if she TRULY were falling off the cliff, I have no doubt the first thing her boyfriend would do is take a photo  biggrin.gif

Funny picture.

Gone too far is what she did with her phone.

at least it would be for me.

Yeah, it doesn't sit well with me at all. I think it was really mean and very immature.  The story the boy who cried wolf keeps ringing in my head.  I sent my mother a photo when I was overseas of just my tattoo and let her figure it out, I also phoned her from Singapore at 1am in the morning and started the call with "mum I'm ok but they are only giving me one phone call" I let her heart sink for a minute before I explained that the connecting plan never left Sydney due to workers strikes and Qantas had put me up in a beautiful 5 star resturant and could she possibly call the travel agent and find out what the hell will happen to my accom in Germany and start of my tour.  But turning off the phone and going to that further extreme is really mean IMO

That is pure, evil GENIUS!

She climbed onto a ledge and pretended she was falling, WTF!

Am I the only one who thinks she is immature and it was a stupid, dangerous thing to do???

#14 riva99

Posted 26 November 2012 - 01:10 PM

I think this may all be tongue in cheek.

She didn't climb onto a ledge. It's just the angle the photo was taken on. She was never in any danger.
She sent the pic, more than once, to more than one person, using her phone... Obviously she was OK.

She is 22 years old. Old enough to go to war, marry, have children, work and live away from her mother.
Not that long ago if a 22 year old went a week long holiday you might have gotten a post card and maybe a quick call from a pay phone.

She obviously felt the need to send a message to her mother to back off. The fact that she knows her mother would track her using GPS makes me shudder.

In some families that sort of pranking is totally normal.

A step too far for an ADULT WOMAN to turn off her phone so her mother couldn't TRACK her whereabouts?

What are you, helicopter parents?

Childish, sure.  But if it saves the "FGS MOTHER, I'M AN ADULT" screaming conversation that was probably coming in the not-too-far future, I think quite effective.

#16 WYSIWYG

Posted 26 November 2012 - 01:23 PM

If she fell off the cliff, why would she/the boyfriend send her mother a picture of her 'hanging' off the cliff? Wouldn't the mum think of that?
Not very well thought out. Sending the prank photo with "See mum, I'm fine" would be funny. What she did was so not funny and totally immature/stupid.

Exactly. I remember when we were on our adventures overseas that I promised to ring once a week, depending on which country I was in. Sometimes it was once a fortnight but I was under strict instructions that I must contact them once a month or else they would call in the search party laughing2.gif

I don't think she turned her phone off - just the GPS tracker.

I think it's hilarious.

I agree. I'm more worried about a mother who feels the need to GPS track her 22 year old daughter than a adult turning off the GPS tracking on her phone. Maybe she and her boyfriend wanted to have a quick trip to Vegas without her mother knowing about it

Something my parents would do to me, no doubt, if they knew how. Thankfully they don't.

If I had a mum who felt she needed to be in touch everyday and keep tabs on my location at all times when i am on holiday then my phone would not even be taken with me!

Agree that a post card is enough to inform relatives at home your still alive.


Seems like this woman is cutting the apron strings and found a amusing way to do it.

Good on her.

Not a step too far to avoid her mother tracking her by gps , but after knowing her mum was worried about the canyon then sending that picture and THEN being out of contact ... that is a step too far in my opinion. A far better way to go about it would of been the "mother im an adult FGS" conversation - it's hard to treat people like an adult if they won't act like one

That's hilarious! I love it.

Mean? Hardly. I don't understand how someone having a laugh is childish. If so, I hope I'm always childish. What a boring life otherwise...

#25 Oriental lily

Posted 26 November 2012 - 02:06 PM

Perhaps she knew her mum would be smart enough to quickly figure it out that boyfriends don't send photos of girlfriends hanging of cliffs and then send then to mum if there  was really any danger rolleyes.gif .

Give the woman and mother a bit more credit.
