30-Day Suspension For Answering Calls in a Fake Robot Voice

30-Day Suspension For Answering Calls in a Fake Robot Voice

NYC Health Department worker suspended for answering phone calls in a robot voice — again

I have to say, this is a HILARIOUS reason to get in trouble at work.

67-year-old Ronald Dillon works on the support desk in the IT department at the New York City Health Department. And last year, he stopped answering calls in his normal voice . . . and started answering them in a FAKE ROBOT VOICE.

People started complaining, and when he wouldn’t stop, he got suspended for 20 days.

And you’d THINK that would get him to give it up. But Ronald is REALLY committed to the bit. So earlier this year, he started answering calls in his robot voice again.

He claims it was to hide his thick Brooklyn accent . . . but no one’s buying it. His bosses think he’s sick of answering calls because he feels like he should be doing a more important job, and this is just his passive-aggressive protest.

An administrative judge just gave him a 30-day suspension.

Woah, You Can Now Buy Caffeinated Peanut Butter

Woah, You Can Now Buy Caffeinated Peanut Butter

You can now buy caffeinated PEANUT BUTTER. It’s from a company called Steem in Greenfield, Massachusetts.

You can now buy caffeinated PEANUT BUTTER. It’s from a company called Steem in Greenfield, Massachusetts.

But do NOT accidentally pack your kids a sandwich made with this stuff, or you’re gonna get some really angry calls from their school.

Because this stuff is POTENT. One tablespoon has as much caffeine as a cup of coffee. The caffeine comes from a green tea extract that’s mixed in.

The creators say it’s actually BETTER at keeping you awake and getting your energy up than coffee or an energy drink, because of the recipe.

Quote, “The unsaturated fats actually create bonds with the caffeine so the digestion process is slower and results in a steady release of energy.”

It’s starting to make its way into stores but if you want some now, it’s available online for $4.99 a jar, plus shipping. Just go to steempb.com.

You’re More Likely to Get Dumped Today Than Any Other Day of the Year

A new survey found you’re more likely to get dumped TODAY than any other day of the year. 22% of people have dumped someone on February 10th . . . exactly four days before Valentine’s Day.

Here’s some advanced warning: If your boyfriend or girlfriend calls you today and says "We need to talk" . . . hang up the phone and start running.

A new survey found you’re more likely to get dumped TODAY than any other day of the year.

22% of people say they’ve dumped someone on February 10th . . . exactly four days before Valentine’s Day. Mainly because they didn’t want to spend Valentine’s Day pretending things were okay.

But if you DO get dumped today . . . maybe it’s a blessing. Another survey found that 4% of people say they’d hold off on dumping someone until right AFTER Valentine’s Day . . . because they still want a gift and a nice dinner.

And while we’re talking about Valentine’s Day downers . . . one in 12 married men will buy a Valentine’s Day gift for a woman OTHER than their wife this year.
