Serial Killer House

YI!

You never know what you're going to find when you move into a new home or buy a car! Recently a woman in Missouri found out the home she was renting was used as a torture chamber by a serial killer and the landlord was the killer's mother!

Slacker says he was close to buying a car from Craigslist; everything about this car was great! He says he went up there to make sure everything was ok with the car, met the lady and she seemed a little off. Slacker decided to ask her why she is selling the car for so cheap and she proceeded to tell him that her husband committed suicide in it! He asks Steve if there was a screaming deal on a car but found out 3 people in the vehical died, would he still buy it?

Steve says that selling the house and taking the financial burden wouldn't be worth it. He says there are no ghosts, spirit of killers or anything of the sort! Steve says that Slacker should have bought the car because it was such a great deal! He says that he would totally buy the car if it was that good of a deal and it wouldn't matter what happened in the past.

Would you move out of the house? Have you ever found out something crazy happened in a home you were living in?

Lie to My Guy

YI!

According to a new survey from the National Endowment for Financial Education, in one out of every three couples, one spouse admits to lying to his or her partner about money. And, 76 percent of those surveyed said lying about money has hurt their relationships.

5 Lies women always tell men

Lie #1: "Oh! It's fine. I'm OK"
Guards on guys! You must know that she's not fine at all and nothing is OK. And sooner or later you will have to bear the brunt of her pent up emotions that she has somehow managed to hold back until now. You'll find her taking this emotional defense on occasions when you may have forgotten her birthday, taken her for granted or have done anything that hurts her.

Lie # 2: "I love you for what you are"
...and I don't want you to change. Well, may God be your saviour if you believe her for this. No wonders, if sheer pampering or impressing you might strictly be on her mind when she's saying this. "I just loved my wife whenever she averred this phrase. But gradually the knick-picking started and reality dawned upon me. At times it was my eating choice that bugged her, while at others it was my dressing style that she wanted to improve. Yet she continued to tell the blatant lie that she loved me for what I was," complained Madhukar Suhas, a Mumbai-based advertising professional.

Lie # 3: You stare, I don't care!
Either you are too lucky to have the coolest woman by your side, or you are getting an inflated ego without any reason if you believe her on this. No matter how hard she tries to look cool and composed, but the fact remains that no woman loves it when her man ogles at another woman. "After all, who wants to feel like second best? And the 'I don't care attitude' is usually to hide the vulnerability and a pretence. Most women hate their man staring at another woman," confesses Radhika Khattar.

Lie # 4: Your friends are cool!
This might not be a lie always, but many a times your friends are nothing but a 'passion spoiler' for your girl, especially when they pop up during private moments. "When we started dating, on many occasions we went out with my friends. And every time I used to ask her, 'I hope you are enjoying?' she answered, 'They're cool!' The real shock came when one day I was planning another group date and she gave me a good piece of her mind. It's then that I realised that she didn't love them as much I thought she did. But she could have initially told me," says a 20-year-old college student.

Lie # 5: Tell me, trust me I won't get angry
This one is tricky, leaving you with a ditch on one side and a bigger ditch on the other. This lie is usually thrown at you when she wants an honest opinion and knows what it can be, but still wants to hear it. Beware guys! Irrespective of what you say, she is going to get furious for sure. This usually happens in questions related to her looks, the food that she cooks, that tangy orange shirt she brought for you etc.

Slacker says not to ask him because his life is an open book. He says that what he really lies about is when he buys a new shirt from Macy's. Slacker claims that he drives to a gas station after he buys it, throws away the tags, and then after he gets home hides it in the hamper until he dry cleans it! He says that his wife wouldn't care but he just feels guilty for doing it!

Steve says it's kind of weird of Slacker to hide the fact that he bought a new shirt. He says that a lot of married couples do things like Slacker and hide the little things.

What is the biggest lie you've told your spouse?

I personally would lie about how much money I truly have in my bank account. I just don't feel comfortable letting my girlfriend know that!

OPP: Defend the Family or Move?

YI!

Today's OPP is from Aiden:

Last week, we did Olivia's OPP about confronting her neighbor because of his 4th of July party. She did confront him and now it's her husband's (Aiden) turn for an OPP. The neighbor wants to fight him all the time and he needs help figuring out how to handle it.

Slacker says that standing up for your family doesn't always mean fighting the other guy. He thinks that he should try and call the neighbors bluff. Slacker says that when the going gets tough you shouldn't pick up and move, what kind of example does that set for the kids!

Steve says this is classic scenario of a woman shooting her mouth off and a man having to back up her words. He says that Aiden should talk to Olivia and make sure she doesn't involve the cops anymore.

What advice do you have for Aiden?

Found In Food

YI!

It's happened to us all...you're starving so you order some food. When it comes out, you take your first big bite to discover a hair, or a fingernail, or a band-aid. Like this guy from Miami!

A Miami man says he found a Band-Aid in his order of Mexican Chop Chop (chopped grilled chicken over yellow rice). When he went to spread curry sauce over his plate, he noticed something light brown floating in the green sauce; assuming it was a chicken bone, he began to dig it out with his finger. He found a used Band-Aid. He went back to the store, where he says the manager offered a refund but also pleaded with him not to alarm other customers. He then called the company's corporate office; a corporate Chicken Kitchen representative confirmed the company had offered a refund and a free meal. "We did what we could to remedy the situation," she said. The customer says he could easily get it by returning to the store or by check, and then she questioned whether he was actually interested in finding a resolution. She argued, "So it really doesn't matter what I say or what my company offers. He just wants to make Chicken Kitchen look bad." Yes, he does. He says he'll never eat at the restaurant again. "It's so nasty -- I just don't want anybody to eat there," he says. "I want people to understand the risk."

Or like this man from New York City,

A patron of a New York City Chop't restaurant—a "Creative Salad Company"—happened upon a disgusting dead rodent when chomping into his wrap on Tuesday. The wrap had been made by the Chop't location in the Financial District of Manhattan. According to his supportive friends and colleagues, who tweeted links and photos on his behalf (both which have since been deleted), the wrap-eater had already taken a bite into his lunch when he discovered the deceased rodent. The wrap was made at the 80 Pine Street location, a franchise that had been given an A rating by the NYC health inspector as early as September of last year.

Slacker says he has found a wrapper from the packet of chicken in his meal! He was eating chicken tacos and he took a bite of something and then he looked and it was the plastic from the chicken! Slacker said it even said "Pollo!" He says that he would rather find a band aid than some gauze in his food. Slacker says that they need to change the subject because when someone finds animals or spiders in their food he will never eat again!

Steve says that the weirdest thing is vegetables, whenever he orders food he asks for none and when they are there he wants to know why! He thinks that the band aid that was found in the curry might have had some dried blood on it. Steve says at least it's not as bad as someones gauze!

What's the craziest thing you have found in your food?

Firework Follies

Yi!

Fireworks. They are synonymous with our celebration of Independence Day. Yet, the thrill of fireworks can also bring pain, and even death. In 2011, Consumer Product Safety Commission staff conducted a study of fireworks. Here's what they learned:

1. 200 people on average go to the emergency room every day with fireworks-related injuries in the month around the July 4th holiday.
2. Injuries by Gender: 68% male, 32% female
3. Most Injured Body Parts: 46% hands and fingers, 17% eyes, 17% heads and faces, 5% trunk, 4% arms, 11% legs
4. More than half the injuries were burns.
5. Injuries by Fireworks Type: 17% Sparklers, 14% Reloadable Shells, 13% Firecrackers, 7% Roman Candles, 6% Bottle Rockets, 6% Novelties, 2% Multiple Tubes, 1% Fountains, 3% Public Display, 29% Unspecified
6. Injuries by Age: 40% 25-44, 14% 45-64, 10% 10-14, 10% 15-19, 9% 20-24, 9% 5-9, 7% 0-4, 1% 65+

Slacker is not at all surprised that it is mostly guys getting injured. He says that he remembers his brothers welding potato cannon type of things together to shoot stuff off around the 4th of July. Slacker wants to challenge the women listening to admit that they have done dumb things with fireworks.

Steve said that when he was a kid, he and his friends would strap bottle rockets onto their bikes and fire them at each other James Bond style. He says the guys with the wax-tipped bottle rockets always one because those hurt the most.

Have you ever had or seen a firework accident? A near miss?

Big Fights

Yi!

A woman was driving down Interstate 77 in North Carolina on Saturday when she noticed a man riding on the back of a sedan car speeding in front of her . She recorded footage on her cell phone. The woman and her family say they saw the unidentified man then break the back windshield and climb inside and that the car was being driven by a woman who had a child in a car seat. The vehicle was going around 50mph on the busy road as other drivers looked on. Authorities received several calls about the incident, but troopers say they don't have enough evidence yet to investigate. They believe the driver and person on the back of the car probably know each other and that a domestic incident may have been taking place. If police do track these people down, they said the driver will likely be arrested.

Slacker said he saw another story in the news of a guy that was bullying a hot dog vendor on a pier. That guy kept getting in the vendor's face and the vendor kept trying to back away. The bully took a swing and totally missed so the vendor clocked him one time and knocked the bully out!

What was your biggest fight ever?

OPP: Neighbor's 4th of July Party

Yi!

Olivia joined us on the air to share her OPP today. Her neighbor throws a loud, obnoxious 4th of July party every year. They are in the backyard all night lighting fireworks, drinking and playing guitars. Olivia hasn't had a problem with it in years past, but she has a new baby this year. She's concerned the neighbor's partying will keep the baby up all night and doesn't want to deal with it. She's thinking of confronting her neighbor or calling the cops on him as soon as it gets loud.

Steve said that she has dealt with the party in years past, so she can't suddenly get upset and change her ways just because she had a baby. Slacker agrees with Steve and says that it's almost hypocritical of her to get angry about it this year.

Slacker says that this guy is crazy enough to blow stuff up and he probably won't take it well if she confronts him. Steve says that guys like this usually don't forget and will most likely look for revenge if Olivia confronts him.

Should she confront the neighbor and tell him to keep it down or just call the cops on him when they're loud? How should she handle it?

Amusement Park Horrors

Yi!

A ride at SeaWorld San Diego broke down Sunday, leaving people stuck hundreds of feet in the air for hours. The 48 people on the Skytower were lowered to safety just before 7:30 p.m., nearly four hours after the ordeal started. A teenage boy was taken to the hospital for anxiety. The Skytower raises riders hundreds of feet in the air and slowly spins to show panoramic views of San Diego. The ride became suspended about 220 feet in the air after losing power. SeaWorld technicians ended up fixing the problem, but the fire department was put on stand-by. SeaWorld spokesman David Kontz released the following statement Sunday night:
"SeaWorld's San Diego's Skytower ride experienced a power failure this afternoon. With guest safety as our top priority, park engineers spent four hours trouble-shooting the problem before restoring power to the Skytower and safely returning the 46 guests to the ride loading area. The guests were never in danger and park officials were in constant communication with them while the power failure was being addressed. Two SeaWorld employees were also in the Skytower providing guests with water and snacks. The San Diego Fire Department was on scene, however, there was no requirement for an emergency evacuation. We greatly appreciate the patience of our guests, and they received return admission and other park amenities. The cause of the power failure is under investigation."

Slacker said the idea of getting stuck on a ride and having to crawl down a cherry picker to get down scares him. He says the cars on the ride are designed to get you through the ride safely. When you leave the safety of the car, that's when you get into the danger zone.

Steve says he will ride any ride pretty much any ride. He says you pay the amusement park to thrill you, and what better thrill than the ride falling apart on you. He will admit that he is terrified of the tea cup rides at amusement parks.

What's the craziest thing to happen to you at an amusement park?

Parental Breaking Point

Yi!

A Tennessee woman ended up in jail after police said she burned her grown son’s clothes in an apparent attempt to persuade him to clean up after himself. According to a police report, Cumberland County sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to a house in Crossville early Saturday morning to respond to a report of a domestic disturbance. When they arrived, they found a pile of clothes burning in a carport. According to Deputy Chuck Hennessee, the son, Daniel Hill, said he and his mother, Theresa Marie Conley, 53, had been drinking and that while he was passed out on a couch, his mother gathered up several articles of clothing he had left lying around the house, including his work uniforms, carried them to the carport and set them on fire. No one was injured, but the residence sustained fire damage to some vinyl siding, according to Hennessee’s report. Conley was charged with reckless burning and vandalism and was placed under a $1,500 bond.

Slacker admits he had a moment that he lost it with his son, Noah. He took him to the Renaissance Festival and bought him a sword. It was made of wood and Noah is leaving marks all over the wall with it. He kept pretending to go after Slacker with the sword and swinging it in his face. Slacker told him to stop and warned Noah that if he touched him with it, he would take the sword away. Noah tested him and put it in his face again but hit him in the eye. Slacker grabbed the sword and smashed it into a thousand pieces.

Did you destroy a toy? Turn them into the police? What happened when your reached your parental breaking point?

OPP: Ex is Still Appealing

Yi! Here is today's unsigned OPP:

Yi Slacker and Steve, I have a huge problem that I need advice on. I just recently got engaged to my fiancé and we are very much in love and I want to set a date so bad but one thing is making me hesitant, my ex boyfriend. We dated for 2 years and was my first real love and boyfriend. I love my fiancé with all my heart and see a future with him, but is it ever possible to forget your first love? Please help.

Steve says every woman can relate to this one. He thinks every single woman in a relationship has someone from their past that they are still pining for. Steve said guys just move on. They remember the times fondly but they don't ever want to go back and be with someone they broke up with. He says this is why he will never marry. He thinks every married woman is probably settling and he doesn't want to play second fiddle to someone.

Slacker said he is a scorched earth kind of a guy. Once a relationship is over, he is done with it and knows there is a reason it didn't last.

What advice do you have for her? Do you still have feelings for your first love?
