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?
Butt Dial by Slacker and Steve,posted Sep 30 2013 9:14PM
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?
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?
Found It by Slacker and Steve,posted Sep 26 2013 9:45PM
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?
In Hayward, California, a couple didn't report that their 10-year-old daughter had been shot for more than five hours because they mistook her bleeding for her getting her first period. The girl was sleeping in her Hayward home around 2 a.m. when a stray bullet from drive-by shooting wounded her in the buttocks. When she woke up in pain and had blood in her underwear, her parents thought she had started her period. But when the girl later woke up for school and was still in pain, her parents inspected her bed and saw bullet holes. The girl's doctor told investigators the bullet's entry wound was small and could have been easily overlooked if the family thought she was menstruating. Police don't have a motive for the shooting and no arrest has been made.
Slacker also has a friend that is a single dad raising his daughter. A few weeks ago, on the first day of school, this guy's daughter started her period while she was wearing white pants. As a dad, he didn't really know how to comfort her and it didn't mean anything when he told her other girls go through those situations too. We want to help him out and have women share their embarrassing period stories.
Do you have an awkward first period story? What's the most embarrassing thing that's happened to you while on your period?
12 London firefighters recently helped free a teen that got stuck in a swing. They freed her by removing the swing from its frame. An eyewitness tells the Daily Mail, She had her hands in her head, embarrassed, and was being filmed by her family and was clearly stuck in the child's swing. A lot of firemen had showed up - they were there for about 15 minutes. They took the chains off the swing and managed to slide it off of her. She wasn't hurt - just embarrassed as there were a lot of people that stood by watching. People were wondering why there were so many fire engines, though.''
Slacker worked at a grocery store once was told to sweep the area that they keep all the carts. It was right next to a bank of windows and he tried to sneak along the windows and just push the carts over so he wouldn't have to move every single one. Well, he tried pushing the carts and using the windows for leverage. The window wasn't strong enough and it exploded!
Yi Slacker & Steve,
I need some advice because I’m heartbroken. I’ve been dating a guy for a while and he told me he loved me and I said it back to him. A few days after he said it, I got text from him saying that he was scared because he fell in love with me so fast and is getting too emotionally attached. He literally told me that he is addicted to me and he’s never been like that with someone. He also said that our relationship is complicating his life right now and he feels like he needs to focus on work. I really feel like he is just pulling away and I’m devastated. I’m seriously lost. I don’t want him to be the one that got away. What do I do? How can he fall in love and out of love that fast?
Is there anything she can do or is this relationship over?
A couple was caught having sex in their mini-van while driving on the highway just west of Chicago…and they kept going even after they realized they were being filmed. Another driver spotted the woman riding on top of the man while he was driving his mini-van so she got up alongside them. A passenger filmed the couple getting nasty and then posted it online. There's no word if they were ever caught, but they should feel lucky to be alive. Earlier this year a woman in New Mexico was ejected naked from a car that crashed while she was having sex with the man inside.
Also, Detroit Lions receiver Nate Burleson was involved in a one-car accident overnight and sustained a broken arm, according to a press release by the team. Burleson will undergo surgery Tuesday, and his season appears to be in jeopardy. The Detroit Free Press' Dave Birkett is reporting that Burleson's accident occurred because a pizza fell off his front seat around 2:25 a.m., which led to the receiver breaking his arm in two places. Here is a portion of Birkett's report:
Burleson was driving a 2009 GMC Yukon SUV when he was distracted by pizza falling off his front seat, according to Michigan State Police Lt. Michael Shaw. He lost control of the car and struck the center median wall.
Burleson, who was wearing a seatbelt, was transported by emergency medical responders to a local hospital, a police statement said. The Lions confirmed “there was no alcohol involved” in Burleson’s accident. “We will provide appropriate updates when more information on Burleson’s condition becomes available,” the Lions said in a press release.
What's the craziest thing you’ve ever seen someone doing on the road?
Punishments by Slacker and Steve,posted Sep 24 2013 7:18PM
Parents (in Australia) were so upset after their daughter lied to them, they put her One Direction tickets up for sale on eBay. The girl lied about going to a sleepover so she and her friend could go hang out at an older guy's house. They put all four tickets up for sale with a scathing two paragraph explanation why they did it, including: "I am here to give you the boundaries that YOU NEED to become a functional responsible adult. You may hate me now..... But I don't care. It’s my job to raise a responsible adult.. not nurture bad habits in my teen age child"
What is the worst punishment that you were ever given growing up?
Bridezilla by Slacker and Steve,posted Sep 24 2013 5:09PM
Some women think being a bride gives them the right to turn into a total witch. But this Bridezilla has to take the cake. A string of e-mails from a seriously demanding bride, who calls herself "The Queen Bee," has gone viral. She has got some crazy rules for her bridesmaids and it will be a true miracle if all friendships remain intact after the wedding day. Here's what she writes:
Welcome to my bridal party. I thought today would be a great day to start this chain, as it is officially six months until my wedding day.
I just wanted to go over some ground rules.
1. Weigh-ins will begin in 3 weeks. I, for one, would really like some time after Thanksgiving to make my body forget about what it consumed, so I thought I would give you guys some cushion room.
2. No-one can be skinner than the bride. That means Kelly and Lizzie will be on a protein weight gainer diet exclusively until May. I will have the nutritionist call you to discuss diet plans.
3. Bed times leading up to the wedding will be strictly enforced. I absolutely cannot have you all have saggy, baggy eyes. I am sure you all understand.
4. Swimwear attire: I would like everyone to wear matching bikinis that have rhinestones on the tushie spelling out "maids," which brings me to my next point.
5. All bikinis leading up to the wedding must be strapless bandeaus. I cannot have terrible tan lines in strapless dresses.
6. Sunscreen: We need to make sure you ladies look lovely and radiant and not red and reptile like. Pack accordingly.
7. Speeches: We all know what happened at Taylor's wedding. So if you plan to make a toast, please submit it for approval and revision, no later than 4 weeks prior to the wedding.
8. Hair cuts: If you plan on chopping off your locks, please submit your proposed new look prior to any actions (this applies to coloring as well).
9. Attendance: is strongly requested at all events but I will make some exceptions on a case by case basis.
10. Ink: Consider this a moratorium on future tattoos until June 5th. Those of you with visible artwork will be privately contacted with (temporary) removal instructions.
Thank you for your time and consideration. Should everyone abide by these minor requests, I am sure we will all have a memorable weekend.
She ends the e-mail with "Just kidding" – but adds, "well, sorta." Which we all know means she wasn't really kidding.
Yi! My husband likes to moan when he uses the toilet. It's really quite embarrassing. I wouldn't mind if it was a little oomph, but he like screams as he goes. It's quite frightening. I had friends over and they thought he was having a heart attack. I told him to cut it out, but he says he can't help it. I think he's full of it! He's not allowed to go to the bathroom when we have people over.
Slacker admitted that this one hits close to home. He said it sounds like someone is being murdered when his son goes to the bathroom. He doesn't know how to tell his son that he doesn't really need to make noises like that to go. Steve really doesn't understand why people do things like this.
Can you top Gwen? Does your spouse do something more embarrassing than this?
A majority of Americans believe in the devil, especially blacks and women. A YouGov survey found that 57 percent believe the devil exists; 72 percent for African Americans and 61 percent for women. Republicans think the devil exists more than Democrats, 65 percent to 55 percent. At least 42 percent believe people are occasionally possessed by the devil and a 51 percent said people can be possessed by the devil "or some other evil spirit." The survey also found that 46 percent believe in the power of exorcism, while just 19 percent don't.
Sometimes things go so bad, the only explanation is that the devil had to have a hand in it! What situation got so bad for you, you could only say, 'The devil did it'?
Yi! I am 20 and recently started dating online because I don't like the snobby girls at college. I have had two amazing dates with a 45 year-old woman named Robin. On Tuesday night, I was updating my Facebook page with some new friends from school when I added her son. I was stunned and had no idea she even had a son.
Danny and I have hung out several times and play on the same intramural basketball team. What do I do? How do I tell him I'm dating his mother? And what do I tell her? Is it wrong for me to be dating my friend's mother?
Slacker thinks it's disgusting that any parent would ever date someone the same age as their child. He could never imagine himself with someone that his daughter went to school with. He thinks Austin should break it off. Steve, however, sees it a little different. He says that you are attracted to who you are attracted to...no matter what age they are. He thinks that Austin needs to have some fun while he can.
Should Austin tell his friend that he is dating his mom? Should he tell her that he knows her son?
Pedestrian cell phone related injuries have almost doubled since 2005. The age group most at risk is 16 to 25 year olds. Walking around streets with ear buds on or a phone in your face can lead to tripping, falling off of walkways, even walking in front of moving traffic. Hospitals are seeing more and more broken ankles because of people not realizing they're walking off curbs.
NASA, the space group, is looking for volunteers who are willing to lay down in a bed for 70 days - and they'll pay them $5,000 a month to do it. NASA is trying to research the effects of microgravity on the body. For 70 days you lay down while they feed you, give you Internet and video games and access to visitors and weird laying down showers to keep you entertained. There are 16 hours of light and 8 hours of darkness for you to feel like you are on a normal day pattern and when it's all over they spend two weeks helping to rehabilitate you. Though it might sound like easy money it's important to keep in mind that living in microgravity without much movement will take a toll on your body - that's why you're a human guinea pig, after all.
Would you do it? What's the weirdest thing you've ever done for money?
Yi! My ex-boyfriend did me wrong. He cheated and refuses to pay back the money I loaned him. I have embarrassing video of him that could hurt his career and ego if posted to Facebook and the net. I am not a vengeful person, but in this case I am. If you were me would you post the video to get even? My family says I shouldn't and should act classier than him. My friends all say POST THE VIDEO and get even. What do I do?
Today's Great Mate Debate was between Tony and Brooke. They have been together for 4 months and they just moved in together. Problem is, now that they are living together, Brooke discovered that Tony only showers every other day. Tony says it's bad for his skin and he doesn't stink. He is also a very environmentally conscious person and doesn't see the point in wasting water every day. She says they live together, sleep together and of course we have relations, so being clean is very important for her. She also thinks if you love someone you should take 5 minutes a day for personal hygiene.
Sometimes we all do things that we know better than doing...For example, Slacker saw someone driving down the road at 70mph with one small rope holding a mattress on their roof. 10 minutes later, Lil D saw them pulled over putting their mattress back on their car.
What was your "I Should Have Known Better" moment?
Yi… I met John on a dating website about two months and I fell for him really hard. But last night, over a romantic dinner, he told me he just got out of a two-year stint in prison.
I couldn't believe my ears! How could he not tell me? I can't date a felon!
What should I do?
Should Kelli continue in the relationship? Should she run now? What advice do you have for her?
A new survey by Office Team reveals that 30% of managers have taken the blame in the office for something that wasn't their fault. Other findings:
- 28% of 'fall guys' have taken the fall because they didn't want others to get in trouble
- 34% of 'fall guys' have taken the fall because they felt indirectly responsible for the problem
- 12% of 'fall guys' have taken the fall because an explanation would have been more trouble than it was worth
Steve once took the fall for a guy at work. Steve was the new guy and he figured he could get away with making a mistake and they would blame it on him not working there long. He took the fall but the other guy was fired anyway!
Yi! PLEASE take this today...
I got married about 6 months ago and I've had an uneasy feeling about my husband lately. Today, I went thru his emails and found he has been communicating with another woman. It's obvious nothing has happened yet but I don't feel like I can trust him one bit. It's obvious he is the one who initiated the conversation with her.
I have a lot more money than he does. I said I wanted a basic pre-nup but when he got upset, I tore it up.
Do I confront him? Do I break up with him? How do I ever trust him again?
What advice do you have for Shantelle? What do you think she should do?

Pole dancing exercise classes have been around for a while now, but they are really beginning to take off in the UK. Research has shown that there isn't a town in Britain that doesn't hold adult pole dancing classes. With all those women getting themselves in stripper shape, it’s no surprise that their daughters are curious about the classes.
It’s become quite a trend for moms to bring their young daughters to their “pole fitness” classes with them – and not just as observers! These little girls are pole dancing for exercise too! As the popularity of pole dancing for exercise grows, dozens of classes have sprung up specifically targeted at children. Several hundred little girls are estimated to attend classes in pole dancing across Britain, and their numbers are steadily growing. Little girls around Britain are ditching more conventional hobbies like ballet to take part in this controversial new trend.
Slacker thinks it is disgusting that you would ever let your daughter do something that is even remotely associated with such an adult theme. Steve and Lil D think that it is a good form of exercise and it only carries the adult connotation if you over sexualize it.
Would you let your daughter take a pole dancing for exercise class?
The CEO for men's wearhouse said their shares are down 10 percent this year... and he thinks brides are superstitious about getting married in 2013 because of the bad luck of the number 13. Reports earlier in the year were saying people could save a lot of money this year because of so many people not wanting to get married because of it being 2013.
Also, Finnair flew flight AY666 from Copenhagen to Helsinki on Friday. Passenger tickets featured abbreviations and read: '666 to HEL'. Finnair pilot Juha Keidasto says, “It has been quite a joke among the pilots. I’m not a superstitious man. It’s only a coincidence for me.” Finnair will fly the same route on Friday December 13, 2013. The Wash Post claims Scandinavian Airlines takes Friday the 13th seriously and doesn't have a 13th row on their planes.
Yi! My wife and I had a spirited discussion this weekend about allowing our 10 year-old son to ride on my motorcycle with me. I think there is nothing wrong with it as long as he wears a helmet. She disagrees and says he's too young and our roads are too dangerous. I think she's coddling him. What do you think?
Yi! I saw my best friend's husband out the other night ... but he didn't see me.
This was probably for the best, because I saw him acting very flirtatiously with the man he was with. He was sitting very close to this man and whispering in his ear.
Now I have two problems - I have to figure out whether or not he's gay and whether or not I tell my best friend. I canNOT figure this out alone ... help!
Slacker doesn't think this proves the guy is gay and Joanna has no way to prove it from what she saw. He thinks Joanna has some responsibility as her best friend to let her know something may be going on, but not to accuse the guy of something that drastic. Steve thinks she needs to mind her business and if anything really is going on, her friend will eventually find out.
Should Joanna tell her BFF that there is a chance that her husband is gay? What should she do?
Steve had a man in his bed…seriously. We know what you’re thinking…and it’s way more messed up than that! Steve had to call a plumber to come work on his bathroom sink. While the plumber was there, Steve was going to run some errands but he realized he forgot his wallet after he left the house. When he went back to get it, Steve found the guy laying in his bed!
Steve didn't know how to react. First, he asked him what he was doing. The guy was shocked and didn't answer so Steve kind of walked into the kitchen dumbfounded. The guy then got up and ran out of the house. He left his tools there and everything! Steve had to call someone else tp come fix his sink and has no idea what he should do now.
What is the weirdest thing that has ever happened to you with a repair person?
Melee by Slacker And Steve,posted Sep 12 2013 5:25PM
We’re talking melee! Close to 4,000 University of Delaware students rioted in the streets of Newark after a party being filmed by YouTube documentary hit series 'I'm Shmacked' spiraled out of control. The trouble began at around 11.30 p.m. and took around 75 police officers and 60 squad cars from around the state to bring the disorderly crowd under control leading to the arrest of three people. According to BroBible, hundreds of people packed into one of the frat houses in anticipation of the Shmacked party bus, but cops broke the festivities up before the crew arrived. With hundreds of drunkards wandering aimlessly through the city's streets with nowhere to go, an unruly mob soon began to form, and it wasn't long before the get-together turned into a full-scale riot. Students began turning over trash cans and damaging signs as the crowd swelled to "several thousand people". Reinforcement soon showed up in the form of some 60 police vehicles from all around the state.
“Yi! My daughter made a new friend at school and now I’ve been forced into an awkward situation. She wants to spend time with her new friend constantly—on the playground after school, at the park on the weekends, have her over to the house, etc. The issue I’m having is my daughter and her friend are not old enough to do these things alone and I can’t stand this little girl’s mom. I feel horrible because this is my daughter’s first best friend and I don’t want to tell her she can’t see her, but I am about to lose my mind! What do I do guys? How do I get away from this woman without ruining my daughter’s friendship?
Slacker is “friends” with a few of his kid’s friends, but if their children weren’t friends he knows he and his wife would not be involved socially with these people because they have nothing in common besides children who are friends.
What advice do you have?
She’s an adult, right? She should use her words and think of different solution like a solo mommy date; take the pair out separately.
They have a child with special needs. In today's Great Mate Debate mom insists that he participate in the same activities as his siblings so he doesn't feel left behind, but dad says that he simply can't do all the things his siblings do and letting him try would make him feel worse than if he sat out. The two have considered putting him in a school specifically for kids with special needs, and dad especially thinks it’s a good idea because he doesn’t see any use in having him attend classes where the kids and material are so far advanced; what would he be
Steve has worked with special needs children in a specialty school and based on his understanding of how underdeveloped their son is he doesn’t see any harm in enrolling him in a special school.
Whose side are you on?
When it comes to his education I see no problem in helping him where it is needed; he has developmental issues and there’s no way around it. If he needs help, he deserves it.
A German company recently fired a woman because there was a chance she was going to get pregnant. The woman sued and won $15,000. The employer sent a memo that read: "For a woman of your age, it is 'normal' to become pregnant and have children. We celebrate every new person in the world, but must take consideration of our business concerns. We would be happy to embark upon the 're-establishment' of our business in Dusseldorf - but that will obviously not work if you are absent in 2012 due to a pregnancy.
A new survey by Gleez.com reveals that 61% of women will take their secrets to the grave. Other findings:

Yi! I oversee a group of employees for a major company and I’ve noticed that the work of one of my employees has gotten way better in the past month. But when I asked him what he attributed the change to, in confidence, he told me it’s because he’s been getting high before work. Our company has a strict zero-tolerance policy when it comes to drug use but this guy has become so efficient that it would kill me to lose him and his great, stoned work! What should I do?
Should Jen turn him in or let it ride because he is being so efficient?
You might remember Mariah…she’s the girl that would do whatever it took to become a single mom by the time she’s 30. We told her we didn’t want to talk to her again unless she had major news…and she contacted Lil D. Turns out Mariah got exactly what she wanted. She's pregnant! She's also now dating one of the guys she hooked up with...and he doesn't know she's pregnant!
A man in Rhode Island wants to silence church bells that he claims have ruined his marriage. His lawsuit claims the bells of St. Thomas More Catholic Parish disrupt his life and contributed to the end of his marriage. He is asking the court to order the church to reduce the number of bell claps and gongs so he can enjoy his property. The 64-year-old says the church bell didn't work when he and his now ex-wife bought their house 18 years ago. About six years later the bell was upgraded to operate electronically. The bell "clapped" and "gonged" at least 700 times a week, resulting in more than 36,000 times during the year. This apparently caused emotional distress, bad moods and arguments with his wife. The Catholic Diocese of Providence says the brief bell ringing is reasonable and well within its rights.
Australian PR worker Sandy Kaye was refused service at a pharmacy because she was talking on her mobile phone. The pharmacist said "it risked patient confidentiality litigation if the person on the other end of the phone overheard private prescription details".
After a 20 minute wait, Ms. Kaye said she went to find out what was happening to her prescription. Ms. Kaye said she approached the counter to be told the shop's policy was not to serve on-phone customers. "There was nobody else in the store," Ms. Kaye said. "She glared at me and said 'we're not serving you until you get off the phone - we don't do that here'."
Is it right to refuse service to customers who are on their mobile phone?
A South Carolina man had to be taken to the hospital after his wife tried to run him over with her car when she found out he was seeing another woman. Police showed up to find the man lying on his side with a bloodied arm and complaining of back and neck pain. He told police his wife had tried to run him over. Officers spotted the car and pulled it over a little while later. The car's front passenger-side windshield was shattered and there was hair and blood on it along with a broken side mirror. The wife told police she found out her husband was seeing another woman so she went to confront the woman. She claimed her husband hit her in the face and grabbed her leg, but officers only saw a small cut on her knee. When her husband walked away, she drove her car toward him and when she hit him, he hit the windshield. The woman was arrested and will be in court soon.

Yi, My boyfriend asked me to be in an "open" relationship because he says that we're young and that we should explore new people. I think he's full of crap. I think he just wants to call it the quits. Why doesn't he just grow up and say it. He says he still loves me, but I find that hard to believe. Why would you want to screw other people if you love me? What should I do?
Alan Bacon is upset with an England electronics store because a hiring manager made him dance to Daft Punk during his interview. He tells the BBC, "I ended up dancing to 'Around the World' by Daft Punk, doing rubbish robotics in my suit in front of a group of strangers. Another middle-aged guy looked really upset as he danced to a rap song.
The store says, "Regrettably, the store in question did not follow our official recruitment processes on this specific occasion. We are currently investigating those members of the store who held the recruitment session. We are very sorry to those interviewees impacted on this occasion and would like to invite them back to attend an official interview where they will be given a proper opportunity to demonstrate how they can contribute to our business."

Candy Crush can be an addictive, but frustrating, game. The game is simple - you match similar candy pieces to make them disappear and try to pass different levels by moving the pieces around the game board. The game has a way to get under people's skin as they try to pass each level before running out of moves - which causes many to get stuck on certain levels and it can drive someone crazy.
For those addicted to Candy Crush, there's hope. Dedicated rehab facilities for the game have popped up in places like the UK. The program costs a minimum of $5,000 and the clinic says 3-5 people every month go in for rehab specifically to Candy Crush.
The company that creates the game, King, promises that they have not worked to purposely create an addicting game as some players have suggested. They work hard to keep the game interesting by making it get more challenging as it goes on, but not too challenging that you give up.
Steve is totally addicted to the Million Second Quiz app. If he has a few spare seconds, he'll pick up his phone and start playing. Lil D is addicted to Kraft microwavable mac & cheese. He eats at least 3 bowls of the stuff every day.
If there were rehab for your addiction, what would you be going for?

I attended a dinner with my girlfriend and her brother was there. He did nothing but insult and bully her. No one said anything. My blood is still boiling. How should I handle the situation? Should I ask for permission to confront the brother or just do it on my own? Where is the 'line' when it comes to family? Do women want their partner to defend them against family and sibling bullying and teasing?
Should Connor ask for permission to confront the brother or just do it on his own? Do women want their partner to defend them against family and sibling bullying and teasing?
An 11 year-old London child called emergency services because the babysitter was too drunk to stand up. Prosecutor John Malpass tells the Daily Mirror that Lindsey Pratt told cops she couldn’t stand because she broke a nail. “She had two children with her, aged 11 and seven. It was the 11-year-old who was on the phone to the police. Both of the children were crying. She could not communicate in a coherent fashion. She tried to stand up on several occasions but kept falling down. The officers had no alternative but to detain the accused and look after the children.” Pratt was sentenced to a year of community service.
Whether you were the babysitter or the parent that hired one, what is your bad babysitter story?

Yi! My son is on the freshman football team at his high school. I attended his practice on Tuesday and was shocked at the way he and other players were treated. The coach yelled and screamed, used degrading language and even slapped one kid in the helmet. I'm a single mom and clueless about sports. I can't believe the school allows this coaching. Is this normal? Should coaches be this aggressive with high schoolers? Am I overreacting?
Do you think this is normal? Should she confront the coach?
We’ve all fantasized about quitting a job in an all-out blaze of glory, but few of us have actually had the nerve to do it. Then there's these guys... Three employees of the Journey store at the Marketplace Mall in Rochester, New York, closed up shop and walked out in the middle of a busy back-to-school shopping week to protest their abusive manager. And what’s more, they left a note behind explaining why they did what they did.
Here’s the note:
Dear Jamie, Since you decided to say, “Cancer is not an excuse” and think it’s OK to swear at your employees like you do ALL the time … WE QUIT. THIS is why you can’t keep a store manager longer than a year. YOU ABUSE your role and staff. Enjoy the fact that you lost a store manager, co-manager, and key holder in the middle of Back to School. Think next time you treat people the we you do.
We aren’t allowing it anymore.
The cherry on the sundae is that mall can fine stores that close in the middle of the shopping day $500 per day.
Women are selling their positive pregnancy tests on Craigslist...to other women. That's right, whether you want to trick your boyfriend into feeling obligated to pop the question or trying to get revenge on someone, why not fake a pregnancy with the positive test to prove it. For $20-$25 women in various states are advertising for the positive tests on Craigslist. Women are also selling frozen breast milk and fertility drugs on Craigslist as well.
Would you buy or sell a positive test? Have you ever faked a pregnancy?

A wiener dog is being blamed for a car crash in Colorado Springs. 91 year-old Vic Vickers and 'Gio' were driving to a park when Gio jumped on Vic's accelerator foot and caused him to crash into a creek. He tells KRDO, "I just thank the lord I’m here because I missed a tree that was 10 inches in diameter, if I had hit it I wouldn’t be here. It’s not his fault; he didn’t know what he was doing. After he got on my foot, I didn’t know what I was doing.''
Yi! The other day my wife came in and said that she needed new tires. I told her she could go about 1500 more miles. Well later she told me that no, she needed to get new tires now. She had called her dad and said that he said so. I was furious! Why couldn't she trust me? Why can’t I be the man that she goes to instead of her dad?
Slacker thinks that Tyler's wife should not have gone to her dad. It is something that they will pay for out of their bank account and he should have no say in matters that involve their finances. Steve and Lil D think that Tyler needs to calm down a little. There is no man that a woman will look up to more than her father. No matter what, she will always go to him for advice.
How does Tyler become the man in her life? Is it normal for women to go to their fathers and not their husband?
Karma by Slacker and Steve,posted Sep 3 2013 9:11PM
Slacker did something bad. As he was walking by a movie theater, people were coming out of the exit door...so he snuck in and caught a movie! He pretended that his son was missing and started calling out his name. He then walked "back" in to the theater and sat down to enjoy a flick. Since then, someone has tried to break into his house, he cut his head shaving, and he got a flat tire!!!
Has karma ever been out to get you? What happened?
