The college fund of local toddler Wesley Graham was effectively emptied this morning when his 36-year-old father, Jeff Graham, needed money for tickets to WrestleMania.
Although nearly $4,000 had accumulated in the educational reserve fund since two-year-old Wesley was born, practically all of it went to fourth-row ringside tickets for World Wrestling Entertainment’s upcoming pay-per-view extravaganza.
The pair of seats to the event cost $3,800 — an amount which, if invested wisely with compound interest, would amount to a year’s worth of higher education for Wesley.
“I couldn’t miss WrestleMania!” the father tried to explain to his justifiably furious wife, Jessica.
“It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity — and it comes with a commemorative chair!”
Jessica tried to explain that WrestleMania is a silly annual event that can easily be watched for the low, low price of $9.99 on the WWE Network, but her logic fell on deaf ears.
The husband retorted that their child “could always go to community college,” which didn’t go over well.
