It's been reported that a couple of women in Lincolnshire, which is a small eastern county in England, United Kingdom, have recently come under quite a heavy amount of fire after they were caught scraping their own names into the wet cement beneath a brand new memorial bench which commemorates all First World War heroes.
Yep, I know, disgusting.
A few photos were published last week, and they show the pair in the act of spelling out their names, "Shell" and "Jane" beneath the memorial bench in Horncastle, Lincolnshire. To make the matter even more disgusting, from the photos you can clearly see two children - who are believed to be the children of these two vandals - watching them defile this amazing commemorative piece.
A number of pictures which were taken of the unscrupulous pair were quickly shared onto the Horncastle Community Page created on Facebook, one of which was a close-up of the horrible aftermath, followed by the accurate caption of:
You'll be glad to hear, however, that according to the Metro (which is a news outlet in the UK), police have already quizzed at least one mum in relation to the incident in question, and are continuing to investigate further in order to find out who exactly is responsible for this moral crime.
In the meantime, hordes of angry locals have taken to social media in order to share their complete disdain for the women, and have been demanding that they be found and should be held responsible for cleaning up the disrespectful mess they themselves made.

And as it turns out, it's not just the locals who were more than less than impressed. Even Horncastle's mayor Brian Burbidge threw in his two cents and offered up his thoughts about the whole incident, sharing his complete and utter disappointment.
It truly is a sad day when you're reminded just how many uneducated, ignorant, disrespectful people there can be out there. Hopefully, these two women will be found soon and not only be made to pay for their disrespect but also educated on why what they've done is such a moral crime!
