“There’s no Cheese in Hamburger!”
We have a new catch phrase people! And a new crazed customer video. Just days after the crazy lady in Florida, Taylor Chapman, recorded herself abusing a cashier at Dunkin Donuts over a missing receipt, now we have this guy who walked up to the Wendy’s drive thru complaining that he got cheese on his hamburger. The video was taken by Jacob Donnelly who was in a car behind this customer.
“I need my money back and I want it fast,’ the angry man screams. ‘Is there cheese in hamburger? There is no cheese in hamburger. When you have a cheeseburger you have a cheeseburger, when you have hamburger you have a hamburger.”

And you thought poisoned rice was bad. Chinese state media reported over the weekend that thirty companies producing preserved eggs in Nanchang county had been closed by authorities for using toxic copper sulphate rather than baking soda to speed up the maturing process.
The black-yolked translucent delicacies are also known as “thousand-year-old eggs,” though they actually only take two months to make—copper sulphate reportedly cut that time by a month. Nanchang produces 300,000 tons of the eggs each year. According to a boss at one of the factories, “there won’t be a problem if you don’t eat too many of them.”
In a separate case, fans of pork knuckles and chicken legs in China’s eastern Zhejiang province may want to think about going vegetarian: police discovered that meat a year past its expiry date was being sold, after being washed with detergent to obliterate any odor and kill insects.
Police say this group of teenagers stole a woman’s credit card, used it at a movie theater and then took these silly photos of themselves in a photo booth.
And police are still looking for the teens.
On Thursday, June 6, a woman reported that she had misplaced her credit card while shopping in the Crofton area. Police later found that her credit card had been used on June 5 at the Regal Movie Theater at 1419 South Main Chapel Way.
Surveillance video from the theater shows teens buying tickets from a movie ticket kiosk. Then, according to police, the teens took photos in a photo booth inside the theater lobby.
In those photos, which are attached to this article, you see at least four teens making funny faces.
Two of the photos show a teen with what appears to be a credit card in his hand. One photo shows the word “VISA.”
Should you have any information on the identity of these teens, call Detective Golas at 410-222-6155.
A Spanish town has come up with an ingenious way to keep its streets clean of dog mess – by sending the offending deposits back to the owners in an official box marked ‘Lost Property’.
The council of Brunete, a small town some 20 miles west of Madrid, launched the campaign to crack down on irresponsible dog owners.
During the course of a week a team of twenty volunteers patrolled the town’s streets on the lookout for dog owners who failed to scoop. They then approached the guilty owner and struck up a casual conversation to discover the name of the dog.
“With the name of the dog and the breed it was possible to identify the owner from the registered pet database held in the town hall,” explained a spokesman from the council.
The volunteers then scooped up the excrement and packaged it in a box branded with town hall insignia and marked ‘Lost Property’ and delivered by courier to the pet owners home.
The campaign, developed for free by advertising agency McCann, won the “Sol de Plata” award at last weekend’s Ibero-American Advertising Festival.
In all, 147 “express poop” deliveries were made during the course of the week in February and the town with 10,000 residents has since reported a 70 per cent drop in the amount of dog mess found in its streets.
The year before a similar attempt to tackle the issue saw offending dog owners chased by a remote controlled dog mess on wheels with the label “Don’t leave me – pick me up”.
In Hernani, a town in the Basque Country in northern Spain, the council introduced a by-law two years ago forcing pet owners to register their dog’s DNA so that they could be traced if their excrement was found in the streets or parks.
British inventor Colin Furze has created a jet bicycle named Norah out of a friend’s mom’s old bike. The jet bicycle, which Furze has dubbed “the most dangerous unsafe bike EVER,” can reach speeds of up to 50mph, though not without the dangerous possibility of shaking apart. For more information on how the jet bike was built,head over to Furze’s website.
Amid the consecutive oil price hikes, people in Banaue seem to be unrattled as they have wooden scooters that do not require gasoline.
It has already been normal to see Ifugao people riding a wooden scooter.
Most people in the town use them instead of riding a jeep or a tricycle. They also serve as bicycles to many kids.
This is the reason why the wooden scooter race is among the most awaited event during the town’s Imbayah Festival.
“Pinili ko ‘yong mabibigat na kahoy para mabilis pababa,” said Noah Daligen, who won a scooter race.
Aside from the contest, other games played during the festival are marathon, tug-o-war, and volleyball, wherein the contestants are only wearing their loincloth or “bahag.”
“I am 55 years old, okay lang at kaya pang tumakbo,” said marathon contest winner Modesto Chalanag.
Moreover, the Ifugaos also have a game which symbolizes their way of settling rows concerning land ownership.
“In the ancient times, this is used to settle land conflict, at kung sino ang magtatagumpay sa kanya mapupunta ang lupa,” Banaue Councilor Rober Binalet explained.
This year, the Ifugaos commemorateed the 10th Ibayah Festival.
In an interview with ABS-CBN News, Banaue Mayor Jerry Dalipog said this is their way to celebrate their bountiful harvest.
“Imbayah Festival means a rich and noble father is transferring his stature and nobility to his son who is married,” Dalipog futher explained.
According to the Wilmington Police Department, a woman called 911 around 3:00 a.m. to report a man was in her house destroying her property and demanding $3.
When officers arrived, they found 26-year-old Demetric Orlando Jenkins outside of the victim’s residence.
The victim told officers Jenkins was hanging outside her home demanding the money and broke her front window when she wouldn’t come outside. She said when she opened the front door, Jenkins forced his way inside and then began to destroy her furniture.
Jenkins was charged with misdemeanor breaking and entering, assault on a female, and damage to personal property.
NBC San Diego reports that Carie Charlesworth, a second-grade teacher at Holy Trinity School, was placed on indefinite leave and then let go because school officials feared her ex could put students and other staff in danger.
After a domestic violence incident in January, Charlesworth’s ex showed up outside the school, which was put on lockdown, the station reports. Charlesworth was “put on indefinite leave” according to a message sent to students and staff after the incident. She was officially fired in April. Her four children, who were students at the school, have also been forbidden from returning.
In a letter explaining her termination, schools director Tom Beecher, and human resources director Bobbie Espinoza told Charlesworth:
We know from the most recent incident involving you and Mrs. Wright (the principal) while you were still physically at Holy Trinity School, that the temporary restraining order in effect were not a deterrent to him. Although we understand he is current incarcerated, we have no way of knowing how long or short a time he will actually serve and we understand from court files that he may be released as early as next fall. In the interest of the safety of the students, faculty and parents at Holy Trinity School, we simply cannot allow you to return to work there, or, unfortunately, at any other school in the Diocese.
Though the letter made clear Charlesworth and her children were no longer welcome at Trinity School, it also noted that Beecher and Espinoza would “continue to pray” for her and her family.
A request for comment from the Diocese was not returned.
In an email, Rita Smith, Executive Director for the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, told The Huffington Post that the Diocese in San Diego made the “wrong decision.”
“Victims of domestic violence need support, and when they are punished for the behaviors of their abuser, it only reinforces the message that no one will help them and no one cares,” Smith said. “It would have been so much better for them to work with her to determine increasing safety plans at her current school, or to look at options to move her and the children to another location so she could continue to support them and the children could continue their education.”
Smith also said the decision to fire Charlesworth could leave her more susceptible to another attack.
“Carie Charlesworth did everything she could to protect herself, and losing her job makes her so much more vulnerable to future violence,” Smith said. “Communities must stand up to these bullies and say No More!”
Statistics sent to The Huffington Post by the YWCA of San Diego County indicate that Charlesworth’s ordeal is not especially uncommon:
A 2011 study by the Legal Aid Society-Employment Law Center’s Project SURVIVE found that nearly 40 percent of survivors in California reported either being fired or fearing termination due to domestic violence.According to a 2006 report authored by Legal Momentum Women’s Legal Defense and Education Fund, up to one half of domestic violence victims report that they have lost a job due, at least in part, to the violence in their lives and 50 percent of sexual assault victims report losing jobs in the aftermath of the crime.
