Not funny what happened to her, but that is the best sad face photo I've ever seen grin

ThroughThickAndThin01 Sun 24-Jul-16 14:56:33

Oooh ouch, sounds very painful.

I see what you mean though.

insancerre Sun 24-Jul-16 14:57:28

the bandage is a bit diy looking

NeedACleverNN Sun 24-Jul-16 14:58:04

Goodness they both have a good misery face on.

Don't blame them though. Sounds and looks painful

insancerre Sun 24-Jul-16 14:59:19

You need to read the comments

NeedACleverNN Sun 24-Jul-16 15:03:20

The comments are saying there was signs up stating no access.

It's her own bloody fault if there was

Gasp0deTheW0nderD0g Sun 24-Jul-16 15:05:34

It's the comments that make this worth a read. They're not a universally well or respected family, it would seem...

I did feel sorry for her at first
But after reading those comments im thinking its karma

MidnightVelvettheSixth Sun 24-Jul-16 15:15:22

The comments are great, especially the one who noted that the 'doctor' appeared to have put the bandage on over her trousers and hoped there is a follow up appointment soon so she can change her underwear grin

NeedACleverNN Sun 24-Jul-16 15:16:35

It certainly does look like she's put it over her own trousers doesn't it?!

I wonder if she has ££ in her eyes

Mcchickenbb41 Sun 24-Jul-16 15:17:51

Was that chewing gum on the carpet ? Where did her dd get that outfit from I want one !! As soon as I saw the pic it screamed compensation but the comments are brilliant

user1468138738 Sun 24-Jul-16 15:20:31

Oooooooooh. "Previous scams!"

DesolateWaist Sun 24-Jul-16 15:20:31

I like her comment asking 'do you always look where you are going when your walking?'

SimplyNigella Sun 24-Jul-16 15:21:17

I saw this on Angry People in Local Newspapers (my favourite Facebook page ever) and the comments are classic, especially about the camouflaged invisible daughter.

Namechangingme Sun 24-Jul-16 15:22:52

Brilliant 😂😂 just read the whole thing and comments! Thanks for cheering up my rainy Sunday afternoon OP.

MatildaTheCat Sun 24-Jul-16 15:35:21

hmm I think she should complain about the quality of the bandaging done at which ever hospital if indeed there was one diagnosed and treated these severely damaged ligaments. Poor woman, what a lot of troubles she's had to put up with. sad

BeJayKayven Sun 24-Jul-16 15:39:18

Serial scammer totally found out! The state of that 'bandage' 😂
Some of those comments are hilarious - although I noticed her sock puppet in the comments section who is barely literate but also quite menacing checking out other people's facebook pages etc.
People like this are so scummy, drain on society.

TwatbadgingCuntfuckery Sun 24-Jul-16 15:42:17

Sounds like the time my very pissed EX-FIL tried to claim compo after he was so pissed he fell over a trolley. Well, not just fell over but fell in and it rolled into a ditch.

The CCTV footage of it was hilarious.

ThatsMyStapler Sun 24-Jul-16 15:55:13

awesome

pulled out some of the best comments (imo)

eroc01: My brain hurts after reading this
Diana Martin: Don't read it then
eroc01: Not sure you understand what the word 'after' means...

This is true, this family has also claimed compensation for falling on a wet floor after a cleaner had been to clean the block of flats where they live.

What a load of rubbish. The Head Teacher is extremely professional and would not have laughed in her face. This family are well known as trouble makers who should be avoided. Other parents witnessed the 'incident' and tell a very different story

Keep drinking the diamond white your comments are getting more incohearant darling 🍻

" This pot hole has been there well before the flood damage "
(mine!) so if its been there a long time, why didnt she see it?
