It’s not quite time for company holiday parties yet, but it IS time to start praying your embarrassing boss does something like THIS when the day arrives.
A new survey asked people to share the most EMBARRASSING thing they’ve ever seen their boss do at a company party. Here are eight of the best ones . . .
- Turning a dance contest into a brawl.
- Trying to break dance and breaking an ankle.
- Passing out under a table.
- Standing behind the bar trying to drink out of an empty bottle of wine.
- Taking inappropriate pictures in a photo booth.
- Gossiping about the employees.
- Accidentally falling into a swimming pool.
- Publicly quitting the company during their toast.
It happens to all of us — you’re driving along in your car, probably heading to some big, important appointment and worried about making it on time when you hear that telltale ding. The gas light.
And of course you can’t stop, so you push through to your destination, but then you’ve got to worry about finding a gas station on the way back home before your car completely dies on you. (Man, wouldn’t life be so much easier if we all drove on e-highways?) Sure, most cars include the distance to empty on their fancy instrument panel, but it’s not always accurate — especially if you’re driving in stop-and-go traffic.
Luckily, there’s a new chart out from YourMechanic that has your back. The chart lists the distance-to-empty range for the top fifty selling vehicles in the U.S. in 2015, as well as the amount of fuel the tank has before the light actually goes on.
The post from YourMechanic also includes other helpful information for the vehicle-uninformed. Like, for example, the fact that it isn’t actually good to be driving around on empty. Running out of gas can damage your car’s catalytic converter, while driving on fumes can damage the fuel pump. Who knew? (Mechanics, probably.)
The chart itself might not be perfect, but it at least gives an idea of how far you can push your car if you’re truly in one of those emergency, can’t-get-gas-now situations. One thing is for certain: it’s probably better to rely on the chart’s estimates than to test your car’s actual limits and end up stranded on the side of the road. Because then you really won’t get where you’re going.
The website CafeMom.com came up with a bunch of ‘lifehacks’ to try this summer. And most of them are things you’d probably never do. But here are four that are pretty decent . . .
- Make ice cubes using aloe vera. Then your kids can rub them on their skin after they’ve been in the sun . . . or eat them depending on how high their I.Q. is? You can also just put a whole bottle of aloe in the fridge if you like it cold.
- Freeze a bunch of water balloons, and use them in your beer cooler instead of ice. Then you can have a water balloon fight after they melt. Just make sure they’re completely melted before you start whipping them at your kid’s head.
- Make a frozen necklace to keep your kids cool. Just cut up a sponge . . . thread some string through all the pieces . . . get them wet . . . and put it in the freezer. Or if you’re not that crafty, just toss a wet dishtowel in there and use that.
- When you’re at the pool or the beach, hide your money in an empty tube of chap stick. Because the chances of someone stealing chap stick off your towel are a lot lower than someone taking your wallet. We actually tried it, and . . . it works.
Screw the chapstick all the way out . . . remove the delicious-smelling cylinder of wax . . . and just leave the rod in there. The bills fit around it. Just clean it out really well first, or you’ll have some waxy Benjamins.
Bank Robber Told Teller to Deposit
A 61-year-old guy in England named Paul Neaverson tried to rob a bank with a KNIFE, and demanded $800 in cash.
The teller said she didn’t have that much in her drawer. Which wouldn’t stop MOST bank robbers, but Paul said okay, and just left.
At that point he probably should have figured the cops were looking for him, and try to get as far away as possible. But instead, he walked around the corner . . . and tried to rob ANOTHER bank.
And this time he was prepared in case they didn’t have enough money, because he told the teller he’d either take cash . . . or they could just transfer the 800 bucks into his BANK ACCOUNT.
It’s not clear if he had time to give them his account number or not, because a customer grabbed the knife from him, and he ran out empty handed again.
Police eventually arrested him nearby. It all went down in March, but a judge just sentenced him to two years in prison for it.
