A security guard in Oklahoma accidentally left the van running with the inmates inside and the inmates stole the van. Police have recaptured all 8 of the inmates. The security guard did not get fired. A Queens attorney sent baby Tylenol as an inside joke to a buddy of his who worked at the courthouse. By the time the Tylenol got to the courthouse it was ground into a fine powder. The mail room called 9-1-1- after discovering the envelope thinking it was Anthrax. The mailroom was cleared and nobody was hurt. The attorney was not fired.
What was the dumbest thing you've ever done at work? Did you get fired for it?
Yi! Ok so my opp is I'm getting married in march and my grandmother has never treated me like family. She's not helping me with any part of my wedding, in fact my grooms family is paying for most of my wedding along with my fiancé and I. At first she told us she would help us, and then told my mom behind my back that she would not help me, at all. I need advice of weather or not I should invite her to my union or not. I know my mother will be very hurt and it most likely will cause a lot of tension throughout my moms side of my family but I also know if she's there I'm going to be upset on my wedding day will and feel the need to be fake to her. What should I do?
Do you think Crystal should invite her grandmother?
Joshua Silverman recently called 911 on himself after escaping from several Oklahoma prison guards. Two inmates stole a prison transport van from a hospital before he dialed the police and said, “Uh, yes, ma’am, you’re probably not going to believe this, but I’m a prisoner in a van, and I’m here with a couple of these other cats. A couple of the guys that were in the van jacked the van … at the hospital. We’re in Oklahoma somewhere. I don’t know because we’re not on a road and I’m not from here. I just don’t want to get shot by no cops or nothing.” When cops arrived, they found Josh and several other inmates waiting for them. The carjackers fled.
Slacker once butt dialed Lil D while he was singing his favorite Gavin DeGraw song in his car. Steve once butt dialed Slacker while he was trying to make some sort of transaction. All Slacker could hear was Steve negotiating a price with someone and he doesn't know if they were bartering over toys Steve collects or drugs.
Have you butt dialed someone at a bad time? What is your worst butt dial story?
Pop star Katy Perry responded to a lip dub video made by Lakewood High School students hoping to win a concert to raise funds for Colorado flood victims.
"Oh my GAWD. Now this is what I call school SPIRIT! I hear you roaring LAKEWOOD HIGH!" @katyperry tweeted Wednesday morning.
Listen to our conversation with Principal Ron HERE
LHS students and administrators are asking people to share the video to show your support for this effort.
If Lakewood wins, a live concert by the chart-topping artist will be held at the school (or a larger local venue) on or about Oct. 25 and will be broadcast on ABC's "Good Morning America." Lakewood High School's student body president, who filmed the lip dub, said if the school wins, she would ask Perry to move the concert to Coors Field so that it could raise money for Colorado's flood victims.
Judges will choose the winning entry. Eligible entries will be judged on the basis of creativity, on-air appeal, "wow" factor, originality and feasibility of a live performance at the entrant's qualified school.
Simon Cowell recently told Ryan Seacrest he will not be in the delivery room when Lauren Silverman gives birth. "Are you out of your mind? There are certain things you shouldn't see and that is one of them. Obviously, I would have to make sure the baby has an English accent. I said to Lauren, ‘What if I just play me on tape while the baby is sleeping so the baby can hear me and have a British accent and his first words will be, ‘You're absolutely useless!'"
Do you think men should be in the delivery room for the birth? Why?
It reads like the opening scene of an "Indiana Jones" movie. A young man climbing a French glacier finds a cache of glittering jewels wrapped in bags stamped "Made in India" -- remnants, perhaps, of cargo from an ill-fated airliner called the Malabar Princess. The best thing about it? This story is true. It happened early this month on a glacier overlooking the southeastern French village of Chamonix, Albertville police Chief Sylvain Merly said Thursday. The climber -- who Merly said asked to remain anonymous -- found the jewels inside a metal box atop the glacier. He turned them over to police in Bourg-Saint-Maurice on September 9. Merly declined to characterize the stones, which are being described in French media as rubies, sapphires and emeralds. They're worth somewhere between €130,000 (about $175,000) and €246,000 ($331,600), Merly said. French authorities are trying to trace ownership of the jewels. If proof of ownership can't be established, the unnamed 20-something mountaineer could stand to receive a portion of their value, Merly said. The gems may be from the 1950 crash of Air India Flight 245, the "Malabar Princess." The plane smashed into nearby Mont Blanc during a storm, killing all 48 aboard. When it crashed, the plane was preparing to make a stop in Geneva, Switzerland, as it flew between Bombay -- now Mumbai -- and London. French authorities say it's also possible the gems could have been aboard an Air India Boeing 707, the "Kanchenjunga," that crashed in nearly the same spot 16 years later. A diplomatic bag from that flight was recovered last year. Adding a bit of intrigue to the story, the 1966 crash is the subject of scattered conspiracy theories suggesting the Air India flight, which carried the father of India's nuclear industry, Homi Bhabha, was shot down by a fighter jet or missile. Debris from the wrecks routinely emerges from the bottom of the glacier, including metal, wire and even a piece of landing gear discovered in 1986, according to a Mont Blanc tourist site.
Also, A diver found a college ring in a South Carolina river that had been lost for 40 years and managed to track down its owner — and discovered the a touching family story. "It was emotional for me. Finding the jewelry and finding out the story behind it," diver Brian Tovin told the Daily News. The owner's mother bought him the College of Charleston class ring back in 1974 shortly before dying of pancreatic cancer. Just two weeks after Robert Phillips got the ring, he lost it while boating in the Cooper River with his future wife Nancy, CNN reported. "Losing it in the river, we never thought we would never, ever, ever see it again," she told the network. For Phillips, who was raised without a father, the ring represented his resolve to succeed and his mother's love. Late last month, Tovin was diving 40 feet beneath the Cooper River when he first spotted the shiny, gold ring. "The bad news is that the Cooper River has limited visibility, strong currents and alligators," diver Brian Tovin told The News. "The good news is because of that, not many people are doing it, so you can find a lot of things." The ring was inscribed with a few clues: 1974, the College of Charleston and the initials RLP. So Tovin called the college's alumni association and asked if anyone had those initials from the class of 1974 — one was female, the other was Robert LeVaughn Phillips. Through social media, Tovin and his fellow divers found Phillips' son Eric. "Everyone from Cooper River Divers was so supportive. This is not a monetary value thing. This is a sentimental value thing. It's not like you are finding a $50 bill. This means something to someone," Tovin said. But Phillips was not in his house to receive the ring. Last Tuesday, Tovin found him in the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston where he is fighting cancer, as his mother had before. "I thank you Lord that I got it back," a tearful Phillips said in a reunion shot by CNN. "I think mama is (still looking after me)." In the hospital, Tovin finally learned of the ring's importance — something his family has known for decades.
Kristin joined us on the air with her OPP today. She has a younger brother that just started college. She wants to teach him how to drink and play drinking games. She says it will be a good way to teach him his limits, but she's also worried that it could lead to him getting into trouble.
Do you think she should teach him how to hang at parties in college?
Travis has 2 kids from his first marriage. Lindsey doesn't have any biological kids and wants to have a child with Travis to complete their family and bring them all together. He says he’s done having kids and she needs to take on the mom role with the kids he already has.
Would having another child complete their family or does she need to realize that she missed her chance?
