Virginia, USA: A teen girl showed her negligent dad the true meaning of maturity.
‚ÄúI just turned 18. When I was in the middle of class, my dad came by. He had rented a trailer,‚ÄĚ¬†she said.
Avery‚Äôs crazy father ‚Äúpulled up in front of the house and turned the trailer on so it dumped out all the pennies on the grass,‚ÄĚ she recalled in disbelief.
‚ÄúAnd my mom came out and was like, ‚ÄėWhat are you dumping in my yard?‚Äô She didn‚Äôt know who it was until he shouted, ‚ÄėIt‚Äôs your final child support payment.‚ÄĚ
Hooboy. My reactions:
1) What a pathetic jerk (the ‚Äúfather‚ÄĚ)
2) What an absolutely amazing, thoughtful, positive and mature response by the young woman and her mother.
3) About that coin circulation shortage‚Ä¶ https://t.co/4RqkX7bhVg

But rather than getting mad, Avery decided to collect the pennies and give them to charity.
The family picked up every single coin and are planning to donate the $800 to Safe Harbor, a domestic abuse help center.
‚ÄúIt‚Äôs not just my mom he‚Äôs trying to embarrass, it‚Äôs also me and my sister and it‚Äôs upsetting that he didn‚Äôt consider that before he did that,‚ÄĚ¬†Avery said.
‚ÄúTurning around and donating that money to moms and children in need, I feel like that really turns this situation into a positive. You can learn from it.‚ÄĚ
Her father told reporters it was an act of frustration release, which had been building in him for 18 the past years, and ‚Äúthe last thing he wanted to do‚ÄĚ was alienate his daughter even more.
