A student at the University of Georgia was late for a test so they parked illegally, leaving a note on their for the parking enforcement officer, pleading with them to just this once, give them a break.
Well not only did the ticket writer not help the student out, they left a pretty nasty note on the ticket that read, “Hope you failed.”
No word on if it is real, but if it is, ouch!

Here are five lies you’re probably telling yourself about money.
- You have “good debt.” We’ve all been told there’s a difference between “good debt” like student loans or your mortgage . . . and “bad debt” like from credit cards. And while it’s true that some kinds of debt are worse than others, it’s best to avoid it altogether.
- You don’t have enough to invest. If you have enough money for a Netflix subscription or a cup of coffee at Starbucks, then you have money you can invest.
- You’ll be earning more in the future. We all want to assume we’ll earn more as we get older and more experienced, but there are no guarantees.
- You saved money buying something on sale. If you rationalize a purchase by saying it was on sale, or that you used a coupon, you’re ignoring the fact that money still left your wallet. You only truly “save” money if you were planning to buy it anyway.
- You get paid well, so your crappy job is worth it. Financial security is important, so it’s not necessarily smart to quit your stressful job, follow your passion, and become a professional “Pokemon Go” player.
But if you live reasonably and spend wisely, you should be able to find a middle ground where bills get paid AND you’re happy at work.
We found a new list of the most ‘attractive’ jobs, and it’s based on online dating results. Which we usually make fun of. But in this case, maybe there’s something to it?
Tinder just released the results of a study where they found the jobs that get the most people swiping right.
The 10 most attractive jobs for men are: Pilot . . . entrepreneur . . . firefighter . . . doctor . . . TV/radio personality (HELL YEAH) . . . teacher . . . engineer . . . model. . . paramedic . . . and college student.
The 10 most attractive jobs for women are: Physical therapist . . . interior designer . . . entrepreneur . . . PR/communications . . . teacher . . . college student . . . speech pathologist . . . pharmacist . . . social media manager . . . and model.
I’m not sure people are swiping right on Tinder because someone has a sexy, breathtaking, beautiful career, but whatever.
Dare to dream you’re more than just a superficial dumpster fire, Tinder. Dare to dream.
20-year-old Tara Monroe is a junior at Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas. She got a DUI in March and her license was suspended. But she needed a fast way to get around campus, and she says, quote, “riding a bike sucks.”
So . . . she bought a pink Barbie TOY JEEP off Craigslist. It runs on a 12-volt battery and maxes out at five miles per hour. It also looks ridiculous when an adult is driving it.
She’s been spotted in it all over the campus . . . which has led to TONS of people posting pictures of her on social media. She says, quote, “This is the best way I could’ve gotten my 15 minutes of fame.”
Toy Barbie Jeep to Class
Last fall, five fifth-graders at a school in Mankato, Minnesota noticed a kid with special needs getting picked on at recess. His name is James Willmert. And they did more than stick up for him. They went WAY above and beyond.
Their names are Gus Gartzke, Tyler Jones, Jake Burgess, Landon Kopischke, and Jack Pemble. We wanted to say their names, because they deserve it.
First, they made sure the bullying stopped, and they have his back at recess every day now. And when they realized he didn’t really have any friends, they told him to start sitting with THEM at lunch, and made him part of their group.
Now they all play football and basketball together at recess. His mom says he used to HATE recess, but now he can’t wait for it. And she recently put up a basketball hoop in their driveway, because he’s gotten really into sports.
The guys also started helping him with little things he has trouble with, like opening a bag of chips or tying his shoes.
And finally, one of them recently asked what video games he has. James said he didn’t have any, so they pooled their money . . . got their parents to chip in a little more . . . and bought him a PlayStation.
James’s mom says they’ve changed her son’s life.
Now that is what I call HEROES!!!!
