Parents hosting sweet 16 party anticipated rain, but not this

Turning 16 is a huge milestone for many teenagers that often comes with a party to celebrate the occasion. For one girl and her guests in Levittown, Pennsylvania, there was an unexpected “gift” that dropped from the sky.

I think it’s pretty safe to say that most of us can remember turning 16 years old. It’s a special birthday that marks one of several chapters in the book of being a teenager.

I myself recall inviting high school friends over for a night of roller skating, pizza and a sleepover to gush about all the boys we liked. Oddly enough, I don’t think I had a cake (talk about missing out) but had so much fun commemorating the occasion.

One can only hope that such an event like a sweet 16 is special for everyone, but mainly the birthday girl or boy of the hour. This is one of the reasons people throw over-the-top festivities that cost a small fortune. Hey, it’s all about the memories, right?

Unfortunately for one teen, memories from her birthday party include a bunch of unexpected crap.

“Out of nowhere, from the sky, comes a bunch of feces,” Joe Cambray revealed to a FOX Philadelphia affiliate. “It was brown, it was everywhere, it got on everything.”

The stepfather recalls rushing into action after a burst of poop dropped from the sky and all over his stepdaughter Jacinda’s sweet 16 party. Luckily Joe purchased a canopy prior to the unexpected party favor that helped to shield some but not all of the 40 guests in attendance.

Not one slice of cake was harmed.

In awe of what occurred, one of Jacinda’s relatives used her smartphone to try to determine from where the droppings originated. She soon realized a series of airplanes flying over Jacinda’s home could be the culprit. According to the FAA, it’s mandatory for all airplanes to dispose of waste from flights at the airport. The family has since filed a complaint.

What would you do if fecal matter hailed down from the sky and onto your special event? Obviously there’s not much that can be done outside of taking cover and hoping everyone’s mouths were closed at the time. It appears this family was able to continue on with the party, or at least try.

It’s good to know turds couldn’t rain on this parade.
