Is technology making us into a generation of overprotective parents? Samantha Busch seems to think so. The 22-year-old scared her mother, Rebecca, to tears while on a recent trip to the Grand Canyon with her boyfriend. Busch's mother had been worried about her daughter going on such a dangerous trip and was tracking her through the GPS on her phone, which bothered Samantha. So she turned off her phone's GPS and sent her mother a camera photo of what looks like her falling off a cliff and crying for help.
Samantha's boyfriend took the photo at just the right angle to make it look like she was falling, even though she was actually on a secure ledge so that she could send the photo to her mom and give her a scare. She posted the photo on Reddit and it went viral. Needless to say, the elder Busch was not as amused as Reddit readers were.
What would you do if your child intentionally scared you?
