    Pennsylvania man faked mom's obit to get bereavement time off

    Couldn’t he have just called in sick?

    A Pennsylvania man had a fake obituary of his very alive mother published — because he wanted to be paid for bereavement time off from work, authorities said.

    The memorial notice appeared in the Jeffersonian Democrat in Brookville, Pa. , which published it even though it couldn’t confirm the funeral arrangements.

    Relatives who saw it called the paper to report she was perfectly fine — and then the woman walked in herself.

    Newspaper editor Randy Bartley said she was very understanding.

    Police were less so. Her son, Scott Bennett, 45, was charged with disorderly conduct. It’s unknown what punishment he faces from his mother.
