Kid has the munchies; Mom wants to blow up school

The urban dictionary defines the word “hangry” as “when you haven't eaten in a while, and then you become really angry/mad.”

But this is a bit different. It’s a tale about an entitled woman who felt her child’s hunger was more important than the safety and peace of mind of a school full of children and their parents.

The story is that a woman in Florida was arrested last week for a threat made in February. It seems as though her son got into an argument with cafeteria workers at his school because he felt they weren’t feeding him enough. Evidentially, he wanted more food and they wouldn’t give it to him.

Even though he was the one hangry, he must have struck a chord in this mother, because she called the Cocoa, Fla High school that night and threatened to blow it up if they didn’t give her son more food.

When the woman left this voicemail to Cocoa High School on Florida’s Atlantic Coast, she did not leave her name, but the school recorded it, and thanks to the magic of caller ID, she left her number. The 41-year-old suspect was arrested months after the fact for making false bomb threats and disrupting an educational institution.

The school had to be evacuated and swept for devices by the authorities.

AP News said “the state attorney’s office filed paperwork ordering the woman’s arrest on April 7. Officials arrested her Wednesday.”

We wonder why it took the wheels of justice so long to catch up to her.
