*Have you seen these? Probably not. I say so because these types of videos always seem to pop up when you’re looking for something else. These are the kind of gems that can make you love the Internet. Heck, we wouldn’t know about them otherwise. So I’ve picked a few priceless ones for you to see…Just because.
Best UPS Man On the Planet Caught Taking Selfie With Local Dogs
Now ain’t this a kicker! Apparently this UPS guy didn’t get the memo about dogs and mail carriers not getting along. Staci Spear Burns, a woman who resides in Athens, Louisiana, decided to record UPS driver Doniel Kidd as he goofed around taking pictures with her three dogs. In a Huffington Post article Burns is said to have shared shared the video on Facebook, calling Kidd the “best UPS man on the planet.”
How could us animal lovers not agree with that assessment?
Burns said she recorded the selfie because she wanted her husband to know how “spoilt” their dogs, Reba, Buster and Jade, are.
*It’s just not fair, I tell you! If you ask me, and I know you didn’t, cops these days could learn a thing or two from Gavel the K-9 cop. True, his focus was more on belly rubs than catching bad guys. Sure, he’d rather have a jerky stick treat instead of taking a chunk out of some bad guys leg. But he’s a doggie for Pete’s sake. Give him some slack.
Can a dog get a pass, please?
No such luck for a police dog. Gavel was ousted from the training program because he liked people too much.
According to The Huffington Post, Gavel’s handlers at the Queensland Police Service in Brisbane, eastern Australia, decided in February that he was too sociable for the force and cut him from its 16-month training program.
*Whoa! This officer deserves some kind of cop of the year award according to the comedian who filmed him being called all kinds of cuss words by a PHL 17 TV reporter. As it turns out, on June 4 Colleen Campbell was booted from the Helium Comedy Club for being obnoxious, she called the cops hoping she would be let back in.
No such luck. The officer arrived. Was told by staff what had transpired and agreed that Campbell should not return inside. It was at this point that the reporter let loose a deluge of cuss-words TV stations may had had to hire extra hands to bleep out. It was all caught on tape by comedian Wil Sylvince.
*Hey, I feel you girl. You got stuff to do, who can expect you to do it all and be on time? What with making sure you moisturize that body until it gleams. Then you’ve got to put on the right amount of smell-good…especially in those places where it matters most.
Then there’s hair to tighten, straighten, put on, curl just right, or just finger- comb. Either way, its gotta be tight!
Oh god: Makeup. Can we talk? If it’s not the hair, then its the makeup that takes up most of our time. Finally, what to wear? Do these shoes match that outfit? Do they hurt my heels or my arch or my pinky-toe?
*I guess you can say this man was feeling some kind of way when he first walked in the building and headed towards the General Assistance office of the Augusta City Center to request a form. I’ll bet this was the day workers wished the form was longer; which may have prompted the man to take it home to fill it out.
No such luck.
“Mr.” apparently chose to fill the form out in the presence of staff. OK. But what if after perusing his responses to the questions asked prompted the worker to let him know he…wait for it…
*I’ve been waiting for this week’s premiere of the new Wonder Woman feature for years. Hell, decades. Ever since Lynda Carter twirled her way into my little 12 year old heart back in the 70s, I’ve waited for Hollywood to give the Amazonian princess the big budget treatment.
I was intrigued when I read about a Texas movie theatre that was selling out tickets to women-only screenings of the new film. I smiled when I read about the man who gloated about successfully purchasing a ticket to one of the screenings, and the vitriol that he faced online about his purchase. And I’d planned to get you all up to speed about that.
*Can you blame them? Workers at retail stores and restaurants, I mean. No doubt they hear some of the craziest mess, what with us trying to return stuff we’ve already worn, or trying to pull one over on them about the price of something. Not that I have EVER done any of these things, but I’ve heard…
But we’re not talking about me here. I ran across this little ditty and couldn’t help but share it. Stories told to Cosmopolitan by employees at Walmart. I cracked up upon hearing some of the stories.
You will too.
Picture this, will ya.
There was a man using the hose we use to water our plants showering naked in the parking lot. He had put up a sheet to block one side, but people could still see everything. When the manager told him to leave, he acted like there was nothing weird about it. He was extremely nonchalant, like he did this all the time, and he just packed up his sheet, got in his car and left.
Now here I was thinking it was a homeless man, until she said he got in his car and left! Then again, he may LIVE in his car and maybe the library wasn’t open yet. Good lord!Continue reading →
*I swear, these kids who just insist on having it there way! In this “I want it and I want it now” existence we share, I recently learned about a young tyke in Ohio who could not wait to get his taste-buds fulfilled by a Mickey D’s cheeseburger, so what did he do on Sunday morning? He grabbed his little sister and jumped into the family car –keys in hand — and drove to McDonald’s.
According to what Jacob Koehler — a police officer in East Palestine, Ohio told The Morning Journal, his department received numerous calls describing the scene of a car being driven by a little boy.
But get this: many of the observers didn’t hesitate to mention how impressed they were with this kids driving skills. As it turns out, he had learned to driver by looking at YouTube videos as consequently, he didn’t hit anyone; nor did he do damage to his dad’s car by hitting anything. Continue reading →
