Runaway Douche Bag

John Mason looked to be May’s Scott Peterson.

His fiancée went out for a jog. She never came back. He called the police five hours later.

This guy had guilt written all over him.

Turns out that John Mason’s not such a bad guy. It’s the fiancée that’s a total douche bag.

Jennifer Wilbanks did go out for a jog. And she jogged straight to the bus stop, where she climbed aboard a bus and took off, leaving her husband-to-be and her family and friends without a word. Hours later, alerts went out and hundreds of volunteers began searching for the missing woman. Volunteers even crawled through sewer drains hoping to find something.

A few days later, Wilbanks turns up in New Mexico, broke and upset, claiming that she had been kidnapped. But her story quickly fell apart and she admitted that she left her groom due to the stress of the wedding and to have some time alone.

Her audacious affair was to feature 14 bridesmaids, 14 groomsmen and over 600 guests. It was a pompous event from the start and no one should feel sorry for Wilbanks. No husband to be ever said, "You know what? I think we need more bridesmaids." Or, "I don’t think 200 people are enough for the guest list. Let’s make it 600."

No, Jennifer Wilbanks had no more stress on her than any other bride-to-be. My wife planed a beautiful wedding that came with plenty of stressful moments. But when she got stressed out, she didn’t disappear. She just added more things to the gift registry.

And if Wilbanks thinks life was stressful before, she’s in for a helluva surprise. Charges are being strongly considered and the wedding is off for now. And those volunteers who crawled through sewage aren’t going to forgive the stressed out bride anytime soon. They were quick to stand up on camera and claim that Wilbanks was as selfish and self-centered as they come.

And if this douche bag still needs a moment alone, then a little jail time would be perfect.
