Today is “Red Tuesday” . . . the day of the year you’re most likely to get DUMPED, because it’s exactly one week from Valentine’s Day.
If you want to break things off without seeming TOTALLY heartless about it, apparently this is the cut-off.
The cheating website IllicitEncounters.com did a survey, and found 30% of people have broken up with someone a week before Valentine’s Day. They polled their MEMBERS though . . . so the number might be lower for non-cheaters.
80% said the main reason they did it was so they wouldn’t feel guilty FAKING their way through Valentine’s Day next week.
And 55% said they broke up with the person face-to-face . . . 28% did it over the phone . . . 12% did it over text . . . and 5% did it on social media.
When you hear this, you might think it’s one of those classic, frivolous lawsuits by some moron. But just wait . . . by the end you’ll TOTALLY be on this woman’s side.
Stacey Pincus of Chicago, Illinois just filed a class action lawsuit against Starbucks . . . because they put too much ICE in their iced coffee.
Sounds dumb, right? Just hear her out. She points out that Starbucks advertises their drinks by how many ounces they have: 12 ounces in a tall, 16 in a grande, 24 in a venti, and 30 in a trenta.
And that’s how much coffee you get . . . if you order it HOT. But if you order it iced, you get a cup full of ice, which cuts into the amount of coffee. So in a venti, you only get 14 ounces of coffee with 10 ounces of ice. Instead of 24 ounces of coffee.
Her lawsuit says, quote, “[You] get just over half of the advertised amount, and just over half of the amount for which you are paying.” She also found that makes iced drinks the most profitable items on the menu.
So she wants $5 million for all the people who’ve been ripped off in the past 10 years. The suit is also demanding that Starbucks serve iced drinks in bigger cups so you get the full amount of coffee you order.

Warning that Christmas fairy lights can slow your Wi-Fi
If you’re looking for an excuse to get out of decorating your house this Christmas, here’s one your family will TOTALLY accept. They might even THANK you for your laziness.
Your Christmas lights could screw up your Wi-Fi.
A British tech company studied how Christmas lights affect your Wi-Fi, and found that the electromagnetic interference from the lights might slow it DOWN. So if your Netflix gets choppy, maybe it’s your decorations.
They also might NOT, since there are a ton of factors at play . . . but they MIGHT. And is there ANY possibility that’s more frightening?
They say things like baby monitors and microwaves can also mess up your Internet speed. So, um . . . I guess let your baby fend for itself and stop eating Hot Pockets?
