    Woman Fakes Daughter’s Death to Get More Vacation Time

    Here's a pro tip: If you're trying to score a few more days off, don't pretend you're the victim of one of the most devestating tragedies a person can go through. And, if asked to provide documentation on said tragedy, definitely make sure all your fonts match.


    WABC New York reports that Joan Barnett, a parent coordinator at the Manhattan School of Hospitality Management, has been fired for telling her bosses that her daughter died. Though presumably Barnett has more than two months off per year, she desperately wanted to spend two weeks in Costa Rica last March, so she hatched an elaborate plot. First she had her real daughter call the school and say that her non-existent sister was in Costa Rica and had fallen ill. Authorities say that next she had a relative call and say that the girl, "died of a heart attack the whole family going down for the wake and funeral."


    What makes Barnett's crime even worse is that the whole thing was tremendously sloppy. She provided the school with a death certificate, but the principal became suspicious when he noticed the fonts were different sizes. The school contacted authorities and according to special schools investigator Richard Condon, a quick search through airline records confirmed that it was a scam."Although the death certificate said March 20th, 2010, she had booked the flight in early March so it was obvious she was going to Costa Rica for vacation," said Condon.


    Now Barnett is on an extended vacation, as she's been fired. She also pleaded guilty to misdemeanor forgery. Condon says he hopes her termination sends a message to other people thinking of pulling a scam, and we're sure it did. Clearly if you're looking for more time off, faking mono is a much safer option.

    I read a different article about this bitch and it said something about her daughter really dying---but it was a different date I think. She was allegedly able to fax the death certificate and bullshit to the Administration, but fact is, she still lied about the date, etc.

    Lemme see if I can find it. Could be totally off on this one.


    Well, not much, but here is what I was thinking:

    A city school employee scammed a week off for a Costa Rica vacation by staging the mother of all hoaxes — convincing her bosses she couldn’t work because her daughter had died.

    Joan Barnett, a parent coordinator at the Manhattan High School of Hospitality Management, was so determined to make the spring break jaunt that she:

    * Had one of her daughters call the school to say that her sister had suffered a heart attack in Costa Rica.

    * Had another daughter call the school later that day to say that the sister had died and that about a dozen relatives, including Barnett, were traveling to the country for a funeral.

    * Faxed a forged death certificate of her daughter “Xinia Daley Herman” to school as proof of the death. The document is required if a city school employee asks for bereavement days.

    Thanks to the scam, Barnett, 58, was able to spend 21/2 weeks in March 2010 — including her school-sanctioned spring break — in the tropical paradise, city investigators said.

    But the fun in the sun didn’t last long.

    A school official quickly grew suspicious of the death certificate because it contained “slightly different fonts which were not aligned properly,” according to a report by special schools investigator Richard Condon.

    Costa Rican government officials later confirmed to a city investigator that the certificate was a fake, noting the document had identification numbers that actually corresponded to a man and had been issued in 2005.

    Costa Rican officials also told the investigator it “does not issue death certificates five years prior to a person’s date of death,” according to court records.

    Investigators also were able to determine that Barnett booked the tickets for her vacation more than three weeks before she left — long before she claimed her daughter croaked.

    When confronted with the forgery evidence, Barnett insisted the death certificate was real and that her daughter “died of a heart condition,” investigators said.

    Barnett even submitted another death certificate — this time with the month and year changed to March 2010, according to court records.

    The morbid plot cost Barnett her $37,000-a-year job at the school. She also pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor over the forgery in Manhattan Criminal Court this fall, records show.

    Barnett could not be reached for comment. Her lawyer declined to comment

    She makes $37,000 a year, works in NYC, and she can AFFORD a nice vacation? How?! Clearly I am doing something rong. Maybe she should've been teaching Creative Finance. Anyway, where there's one rat you may find another, let's just say.

    Also, although I am a realist and understand the need for the practice, I find it kind of depressing that you have to produce a death certificate in order for your employer to believe someone in your life died and give you a few moments to grieve.

    Well, unless the employer knew how many kids she had and wanted proof on one he didn't know about. I'm just assuming here; he probably wanted to call her out on it and make her look like an ass.

    My boss knows how many children I have and I know he (and everyone I work with) would certainly want proof if I told them an unknown child of mine died.

    karma's a bitch and I was taught you NEVER lie about your kid even being sick (let alone dying) or your vehicle having any sort of trouble because karma will bit you in the ass!

    This too. My bosses know my son, his name, his age, his hobbies etc. If I said something like this, I don't know how my boss would react. Just crazy shit. I could use some time off (who couldn't?) but there is no reason on earth I'd lie about my child.

    Kill her.

    Kill everything... that IS the solution!
