The Title of Most Awful Accountant in the World Is Spoken For

Try as you might, this will top everything you've done to be a deplorable member of the accounting brethren:

[A]n accountant in Singapore refused to be associated with her mother even after her death all because of the S$2,000 [about $1,600 USD] in funeral expenses. The accountant, in her 30s, did not show up after learning of her mother's death at a nursing home. […] [T]he accountant claimed she was only a relative when she first sent her mother to the home some 10 years ago. She visited her mother several times and each time claimed that she was either a friend or a neighbour.

The bar has been set.
