Some people are real assholes when they drink. Kids that are assholes grow up to be adults who are assholes. Sounds like this kid has a history of it that will cost him. I have to give that manager a TON of credit for how restrained and patient he was dealing with him.

Police: Florida woman called 911 to report she was shorted during drug deal




Quote:
FORT MYERS, Fla. – A drug deal gone bad turned out even worse for a Fort Myers woman after police say she decided to complain to 911.

Erin Klich, 35, said she was shorted when she tried purchasing $75 worth of marijuana, but when she didn’t get the weed, she called 911 about it.

When police arrived at a home on Lafayette Street, Klich was waiting outside still on the phone with dispatchers. Klich told officers the dealer inside took her money.

Police handcuffed Klich and put her in a patrol car. They arrested her on a charged of misuse of a 911 call.

Officers say they later found a bag of pot wedged in the seat.

If Klich wouldn’t have called the emergency line, it’s likely she could have avoided the charges. Instead, Klich was jailed with two misdemeanors, one for the misuse of 911 and the other for possession of marijuana.

I like that she says she loves her nephew...but she'd still really like to saddle him with an unpayable debt of over $120,000 at the age of 12.

Yeah, I'm guessing the feelings are not going to be mutual anymore.

Maybe she expected him to take up a few more paper routes to pay off that debt.

Quote:
A woman who sued her 12-year-old nephew over a birthday hug that left her with a broken wrist has been awarded zero damages by a Connecticut jury.

The jury members reportedly took just 25 minutes to come to their decision, according to the New York Daily News.
Ha! She and her attorney should have been fined for wasting the Court's time and presenting them with such nonsense.

That's a good ending to that story.

The local radio morning show was talking about this story, and they said the 12 year nephew's mother died like a year ago and the woman still didn't drop her lawsuit. Bitch!

Welp...I am done with the human race.
Was just told this on my fundraising page for EXTRA LIFE;
"Nobody is gonna give you any money for your stupid charity. Even $1 is too much to waste on some stupid gamer trying to play games all day. How about instead of asking everyone for money, just donate your paycheck? Or better yet, since you seem like some liberal idiot, have Obummer pay for these kids."
Humanity is fucked. I give up.

See, that person is simply stupid. They aren't willing to donate to help the kids, but they think you should instead?

I mean, they'd still be jerks if they went out of their way to mock the MEANS by which you were raising funds for the kids, while still donating themselves in a way not associated with playing videogames all day, but at least then they'd still be contributing something worthwhile.

As it is, they seem to be mocking the whole NOTION of trying to help the kids, in ANY way. What the heck?

I will admit that the notion of getting other people to donate funds while you play videogames all day DOES sort of make it seem like some people are trying to make a virtue out of doing something they want to do anyway but can't usually get away with. But realistically, I'm not sure how it is functionally any different from any number of other fill-in-the-blank-a-thons of many different stripes that DON'T catch flak, and the end result is admirable.

This is the internet age, where the most grand of gestures are met with cynicism, trolling and blatant, juvenile stupidity. Unfortunately, this type of behavior is almost to be expected, which is sad; most trolls have nothing better to do than to get a rise out of folks. All you can do is ignore it and press on.

I think this is from a while ago, but I just heard about it, and it sure seems to fit this thread...

Car Thieves Drink HIV-Infected Blood

(Although, from what I understand, you are actually unlikely to get infected in this way, unless you've got some kind of open sores in your mouth or something.)

They mistook it for yogurt? Really? Is yogurt sold in vial-like containers in their country? Because that is a pretty idiotic reason to drink out of something that has a universal definition of "caution! This might be from a sick person!"

My doctor told me that once HIV+ blood hits the air, the virus is basically rendered ineffective, but these guys do have a good chance of becoming positive if the blood was drawn with a vacuum type syringe, or they had diseased gums and open sores, like you said. This story fits well into this thread.

Woman tries to pet Omaha zoo tiger, gets bitten



Quote:
(Reuters) - A woman who broke into an Omaha zoo was bitten by a tiger when she tried to pet it in its cage, police said.

The woman, Jacqueline Eide, 33, was hospitalized at Creighton University Medical Center after being bitten on the left hand, police said in a statement on Sunday.

Eide entered the Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium after it was closed and reached into a tiger's cage to pet it. A friend took her to the hospital.

"Eide was aggressive toward staff and showed signs of intoxication of alcohol and/or drugs," the statement said.

A police spokesman was not available to say if Eide would be charged. A hospital spokesman declined to give her condition.

That is incredibly stupid, but I wonder about the layout there. At our local zoo the only way you could attempt that would be if you broke into the behind-the-scenes areas. In the public areas of the zoo there is no WAY to get close enough for something like that to happen.

Yeah, same at the Philly Zoo. But, the fact that she did it when it was closed suggests she wouldn't have gotten that far during normal hours.

Same at the Roger Williams Zoo in RI as well, friends. Although I can't recall if they had tigers, but I'm fairly certain they had animals with the same ferocity.

Same thoughts here, too. I pray they just leave the animal alone.
