Imagine being the representative of a newspaper publication who has to explain this awkward mishap!

55-year-old Leroy “Blast” Black of Egg Harbor Township, NJ, succumbed to lung cancer on August 2, 2016. When readers initially saw two obituaries published of the man in the 5th edition of The Press Of Atlantic City , they assumed it was a printing error. That is…until they read the peculiar differences in the writings of ;  one is written by his wife, and the other is written by his girlfriend.

According to The Philly Voice, a funeral home spokesperson said that the newspaper determined that two obituaries were necessary because “the wife wanted it one way, and the girlfriend wanted it another way.” Rather than fight with the two women, who were already grieving, the paper decided to say yes to both of them.

What would YOU do if you were the wife in this situation???
