Son a headache says mum

A long suffering Christ Church woman has almost reached the last straw concerning her adult son.

Police recently reported the return of 40-year-old Christopher Broome, who had been reported missing on October 4 and returned five days later.

It was not Christopher’s  first time leaving home for an extended period of time as evidenced by comments on social media.

At his Homestead Drive in Frere Pilgrim home his mother Elsa Broome described her son as wayward with a bad temper.

“What happened was a personal matter but he has a bad attitude so he took up our car and went somewhere. He dropped us off at the airport when we were travelling but when we got back and were waiting for him – no Christopher. We had to get a friend to bring us home. That is now our only vehicle as I sold the other one we gave him because he wouldn’t care it so he knew taking it would hurt us,” she said, the “we” referring to her husband.

Broome, who is in her 60’s, said her son was a civil servant – on sick leave – and had a seven-year-old child who also lives there. She said he was intelligent, having attended Christ Church Foundation and the University of the West Indies, although he did not finish the latter. However, she said she wanted her son to seek counselling for his temper.

“He’s alright but for a big man he does foolishness. He gets too angry and needs counselling. You can’t tell Christopher anything, he does what he likes but he has to buckle up and change or I’ll have to ask him to leave because I can’t take much more,”she said.

Christopher was at home when the team passed. However, both his mother and a visiting friend advised against attempting to speak to him. (CA)
