Woman Teams Up With Domino's Worker To Get Back At The Hacker Who Stole Her Pizza

Woman Teams Up With Domino's Worker To Get Back At The Hacker Who Stole Her Pizza

I’m a fiend for Halo Top Ice Cream, especially the chocolate peanut butter pint. My local supermarket’s computer algorithm knows this and will constantly give me coupons and receipts every time I buy a pint.

They know I’m going to come back for more and end up saving me some money every time I get some of that low-calorie deliciousness. I’m not an extreme couponer or anything like that, but getting those $ 1 or coveted $ 2 off coupons makes me feel like I have a little reward program, and I get a little bummed out every time I lose a coupon or accidentally throw it away.

And I get it, Halo Top might not be everyone’s cup of tea, and it’s been meme’d into infinity…

…but I still like it and the little rewards program I set up for buying it. JUST LET ME HAVE THAT, GUYS.

And as bummed out as I am when I lose a coupon, I’d be even more livid if I found out that someone managed to steal my ice cream coupons and use them for themselves. Because I’m the one who originally paid for the Halo Top, dagnammit, why the heck should they reap the benefits of my spending, right?!

Which is why I audibly gasped when Twitter user @gracearnprie discovered her Domino’s account had been hacked and someone did the unthinkable:

They used her points to get a free pizza. Her free pizza. The nerve. The gall.

Devastated, Grace contacted her local Domino’s to let them know of the scoundrel’s scheme and they were not having it. The employee promised to throw the pizza away and get in the crook’s face to let them know what a scumbag they were for hacking into someone’s account.

Not everyone believed Grace, initially.

But she had the proof.

The Domino’s confirmation email.

image

And the call to the shop.

image

Some people still doubted her and noticed a time “discrepancy” in her story.

And it gently had to be explained to them.

Some people were more concerned with the fact that a perfectly good pizza went to waste.

Grace’s response pretty sums up everyone else’s feelings on the matter who have ever had anything stolen from them.

image

And there were more than a few individuals who were concerned with the fact that Grace’s private details were available to the “hacker.”

Thankfully Grace kept most of her private details out of her account.

Her tweet blew up so much that Domino’s PR team contacted her. Here’s hoping she gets some extra points and/or swag for her woes.

People immediately began worrying that the employee who vowed to tell the thief off would be in trouble.

As for Grace, the entire experience left her feeling some kinda of way.

Let’s hope her points are restored and she picks a stronger password next time.

Someone Is Scratching Creepy Messages Into Banana Peels For People To Find

There is one thing humans are always trying to do and that’s freak each other out. Just look at what we do with clowns. If something innocent and sweet can be turned towards evil ends, we will. Take, for instance, the banana.

Writer and producer Kevin Biegel has introduced a new element of fear to the preferred fruit of toddlers and the potassium-deficient. He takes a harmless, ordinary banana, scratches a haunting message into it. Then…he waits.

At first the message is barely visible:

image

But then the words will surface:

image

HELP!! That banana KNOWS about me! Friends of Biegel’s will suspect him if something like this happens in their fruit bowl, but what if you live alone? What if you put a banana in your grocery basket, and it appears as you unpack at home? I’m crushing a banana in my hand and screaming just thinking about it.

Unfortunately, the idea has gone viral and we’re all vulnerable to banana terror now. People love it so much, they think it could be a plot twist in movie:

A movie with a very obvious name:

In fact, people like it so much it got turned into a meme:

Something tells me this will be the new trend for summer:

There’s a lot of directions you could go. Messages from a sentient banana:

Once it occurs to you to do this, it’s pretty hard to resist the pull.

Biegel didn’t invent the idea; people shared some of their fruit art in the replies:

This banana message trend is just getting heated up. The sky is the limit for where it can go, so buy your banana bunch and experiment. Perhaps with terrifying your children:

Kids are already afraid of fruits and vegetables, anyway.

This Guy Posts Fake Ads All Over His Neighborhood And They're Hilarious

The Internet is full of trolls, but some very special people get away from their computers and go out to their communities to troll their neighbors in real life, the way people did before technology took over. Artist and comedian Alan Wagner is just such a genius, and though his images do eventually find their way onto his Instagram account, they’re meant to baffle casual strollers who encounter them out in the world.

Wagner seems to use a mix of found images and visuals he creates with Photoshop. His graphic design skills range from hand-written scrawls to old-school typography that makes his signs and advertisements look like they were ripped out of a psychopath’s textbook published in 1986. In other words, they’re perfect.

Take, for example, this extremely creepy ad for blood removal that specifies the service will deal with no other bodily fluids:

How about discovering your destiny through your kneecap?

He also files missing person’s reports. In this case, he’s found someone’s missing person.

Here’s a sign helping the elderly become even older:

Here’s a normal dog and trombone exchange. Oh wait, it’s the “trobmone,” actually:

Some of these ads are a pretty big commitment, like this one on the side of a bus stop:

But they’re all useful. Who doesn’t need a car impersonator to enliven a party?

Maybe you’ve always wanted to meet a woman who breathes dust, if just to convince her to stop:

Some are a bit NSFW:

Or tell a really compelling two-part story:

Stories of lost love and wasted food product:

And family dramas:

There’s also attempts at product-testing on the cheap:

And some run-of-the-mill health issues:

Even though they’re all jokes, Wagner really has thought of something for everyone. He will tap into your deepest nightmares and make them very, very funny.

Mother’s milk for good Internet boys and girls.

This Woman's Tinder Profile Has People Arguing About Toilet Paper Rules

Dating can be rough. You gotta go through a lot of frogs to find your prince, and a lot of the frogs can be crappy at messaging on Tinder. They’ll send a bad message responding to your bio, your pictures, your musical taste. Any info they can get about you could inspire a stupid comment or rude question. But this is the price we pay for l’amour.

Writer Hana Michels shared her own issues with this system on Twitter, sharing an image of herself she’s had on Tinder. In it, she’s standing in the bathroom, brushing her teeth. In the background, a toilet paper roll is visible. According to Michels, in the past year she’s received 23 messages from men telling her she’s hanging her TP wrong. 

Men, I ask you: why?

She further clarified that she also swipes on women, none of whom have had a thing to say about her toilet paper roll.

The thing is, people have opinions about toilet paper, and her tweet got a lot of responses:

TP can be divisive in the household:

Can a roommate relationship recover after toilet paper has split it asunder? Michels seems open to understanding another point of view, as long as it doesn’t come at her via Tinder.

And her view is not uncommon. Many agree that under is the way, the word, the truth:

There are actually lots of practical reasons for it:

But then came the naysayers, many of whom took umbrage with Michel’s assertion that only men sent her this message.

At least one person has been literally taking on the issue with their own two hands:

But there is actually an answer to this eternal debate. 

The original toilet paper roll was patented in 1891 by New York businessman Seth Wheeler, according to the Huffington Post. According to Wheeler, the paper should go over:

This info was also submitted to the debate:

But the best answer in my opinion is this:

If you’re not paying for and stocking my TP, don’t talk to me about it. Especially before you even buy a girl a drink.

Grandma Discovers Something About The 'USA' Shirt She's Been Wearing For 25 July 4th Celebrations

Grandma Discovers Something About The 'USA' Shirt She's Been Wearing For 25 July 4th Celebrations

Dressing up for special occasions is pretty great, and nothing says PATRIOTIC GET-UP better than rocking your red white and blue everything on the 4th of july.

T-shirts brandishing the old stars and stripes, cheap wayfarer knock-off sunglasses, blue shorts, red sneakers and a white top bedazzled with stars, everyone can rep the US flag. Heck, even if you’re from New York my guy, there’s a special USA item of clothing for you.

image

The iconic symbol of America’s flag is immediately recognizable, and no July 4th celebration would be complete without drowning in a glorious sea of red, white, and blue, accompanied by whatever cold cheap beer your friends managed to toss into a cooler.

The thing is, however, that the colors red, white, and blue are pretty common. There are tons of countries that have them on their flags. Look at France. Look at Britain. Stars, while not exactly a rarity, are a bit less common. So if you see stars, red, white, and blue on something, your mind automatically thinks ‘Murica.

That’s what Dale Cheesman’s grandma thought. She’s been repping the same fourth of July shirt for more than 25 years. Look at how adorable she is in it.

image

However, thanks to the 2018 World Cup and the participation of one team, Panama, Dale and his family discovered something about Grandma’s shirt.

She wasn’t repping Old Glory at all. Take a look at the Panamanian flag below, then back at Granny’s shirt.

That’s right, every July 4th for 25+ years, Grandma was actually proudly rocking Panama’s flag.

Something that Dale calls “25 years of treason.”

People loved Dale’s post.

And immediately replied by giving some Panama-approved Grandma nickname puns. 

Now here’s where it gets crazy, a proud citizen of Panama pointed out that he should tell his grandmother to rock the shirt on November 3rd, which is Panama’s Independence Day.

Dale’s birthday? November 3rd. BOOM.

Others wanted to know just how in the heck Grandma managed to keep a 25+ year shirt looking so darn nice.

People just wanted his grandma to come and visit Panama, probably on account of how well she wore that shirt.

Others didn’t find it so funny. This is July 4th after all, and Granny was sporting the wrong flag.

On the plus side, however, she at least was wearing a shirt for a country that qualified for the World Cup and even won it!

It was the World Cup of Flags on Twitter, but still, so what they lost 6-1 to England? They’ve got that distinction and an awesome Grandma who will hopefully uphold  the tradition come this July 4th.

Store Fires Manager After Denying Mother Time Off To Be With Her Son On Life Support

Store Fires Manager After Denying Mother Time Off To Be With Her Son On Life Support

When managing a business, it’s tough finding dedicated workers who you can actually trust and rely on.

Not everyone may take your business as seriously as you and when you’re the boss, it requires you to make tough decisions like having uncomfortable conversations with some employees who aren’t cutting the mustard.

Without going overboard, obviously.

image

And while it’s true that human beings can come up with some of the lamest, off-the-wall excuses to get themselves out of just about anything, like this dude who thought he’d “explain” why he has a hickey…

image

There are some people, however, with legitimate excuses as to why they can’t make it into work. And, as long as you’re not an overbearing boss, you’ll figure out a way to change schedules around and ensure your business is running.

Unfortunately for Crystal Reynolds Fisher, her boss seemingly wasn’t really that understanding of an individual. She informed her she’d have to miss a shift so she could be with her 18-year-old son who was on life support. Crystal’s Boss, Dawn, really wasn’t feeling that excuse.

image

Crystal, who works at a PS Food Mart and Folk Oil Company gas station, had to have her son rushed to the hospital after he suffered a 104-degree fever. She asked her daughter to call out of work for her as she stayed with her son. She recalls hearing her boss on the other side of the line:

“She said ‘can you have somebody cover mom for [Friday], my brother’s really sick, they’re going to have to ventilate him. And the boss, I could hear her over the phone and she told my daughter ‘this ain’t the way we run things, you’re mother needs to be the one calling me.'” Fisher told Fox17.

Fisher learned that her son was suffering from a bacterial infection and was placed on life support. She texted Dawn to let her know of her situation and that she would return to work the second is health began to improve. This was their conversation.

image

Immediately, Dawn tries to convince Crystal that her not showing up to work because her son was on life support was tantamount to her “quitting.” Something that Fisher contested. She notified Dawn she would reach out to corporate and inform them of the way she acted.

image

Still, Dawn did not relent, thinking she was in the right.

image

Frustrated and flustered, Crystal couldn’t believe this response. So she posted the screenshots on her Facebook page and made the post public.

It immediately went viral.

Crystal’s post has been shared over 75,000 times to date, and people reached out to the mom to let her know that what her boss was doing, was in fact, illegal.

In no time, PS Food Mart and Folk Oil learned of Dawn’s behavior and announced that they would be looking into the way she handled her interaction with Crystal.

After conducting their investigation they discovered that Dawn was, in fact, in the wrong, so they announced on their Facebook page that she was fired from the company.

Some people pointed out that there are companies only act in their employees’ best interests when they’re put on the spot, and that they should proactively make sure their employees are taken care of – without a huge social media scandal.

As for Crystal, she only has one message for her former boss: “I pray for you. I pray for you. That’s all I can say.”

Pub Owner Posts Rant About What Happened When A Man Brought In His Son In A Wheelchair

Pub Owner Posts Rant About What Happened When A Man Brought In His Son In A Wheelchair

One of the dark truths about the world is that there is a low tolerance for people perceived as different. This unfortunately even extends to children. There are lots of kids out there who have difference in abilities, who need extra care and compassion. Unfortunately, there’s a shocking number of people who have no interest in giving it!

But why dwell on them? Because we also have people like Steph Tate, the landlady of the The Barrel Pub, in Sheffield, UK. Tate used her Facebook page for the establishment to share a story about a family that came in to ask if it would be all right if they brought in their son, who is in a wheelchair. She wanted everyone to know her opinion on that:

She wrote:

PLEASE SHARE.

Yesterday a parent came in and asked me if his wheelchair bound child was ok to be in the pub, I was confused why he felt he needed to ask. This man went on to explain that his child sometimes makes loud noises and waves his arms about, people have made comments in the past when he has taken him out.  It broke my heart that a parent felt they needed to ask if it was ok for his child to be here just like anyone else.

My intention is not to embarrass the parent who I spoke to yesterday, it has played on my mind all night about how this man must have felt asking me if his child would be accepted in here. It then got me thinking about how many other people must be in the same position

Whether you need us to get you extension leads to plug specialist equipment in, help moving tables/chairs for wheelchairs or any other help you may need, everyone is welcome in my pub and help will always be offered by all of my staff.

If you’re sat at home with a disabled child, partner or friend and feel on edge about taking them anywhere due to fear of someone making comments please feel free to bring them here. If I find anyone making negative comments or being disrespectful they will be asked to leave not you.

Steph

And people did share! Over 1,600 times so far.

Tate has been celebrated for her stance, even though people are saddened by the discrimination the family has faced elsewhere.

Some shared stories of the difficulties they’ve had in public with kids who have special needs:

Huffington Post UK actually found the family, and the 13-year-old boy, Matthew, and interviewed them about the experience. Leila Adams, Matthew’s mother, said she was the on who sent her husband in to check if the pub would let them in.

“I’ve had so many negative comments and verbal abuse pretty much every time I’ve been out on my own with Matthew,” Adams said.

“My husband checked with the landlady to ensure there wouldn’t be an issue n order to reassure me, as our son was quite excitable after a long journey on a warm bus.”

She continued: “Our son is usually very happy and sociable, he loves being out and about. However, quite often this can result in a very high pitched screaming or yelling to express this enjoyment, often accompanied by throwing his arms about and banging his head on his wheelchair, which is part of his sensory processing disorder that he developed after the illness.”

Matthew is non-verbal, having contracted viral encephalitis as a 6-month-old. Brain swelling from his illness caused brain damage that limits his ability to communicate. The family includes three other children, and sometimes on family outings they have to split up to accommodate Matthew’s accessibility needs.

“On the occasions when we can do things like this it’s nice to be able to enjoy typical family pursuits and spend time with all the family instead of splitting up like we often do,” she said.

They also interview Tate, who stands by her post.

“It can be difficult enough for parents to take out children in wheelchairs, so to be turned away from somewhere when you do take them out is just awful,” she said.

Adams also spoke with Bored Panda, saying that how Matthew is treated in public can be a reflection of how we all treat each other.

“I think an emphasis on ‘treat others as you would wish to be treated’ type mentality needs to become the norm across all of society and age ranges,” she said.

Sounds right.

Chrissy Teigen Starts Basketball Rumor About LeBron James And It Ends Up Being True

Chrissy Teigen Starts Basketball Rumor About LeBron James And It Ends Up Being True

Chrissy Teigen’s not just a model, TV personality, amazing cook with a penchant for delicious recipes, and Queen of Twitter who shuts trolls down by reminding them of her net worth, she’s also a clairvoyant.

image

Or at least an unintentional one.

Teigen recently became an accidental Nostradamus after tweeting that she wanted to start some basketball rumors

People were immediately interested in whatever trouble she was going to start. Because, knowing Teigen, it would be hilarious. Some got in on the action and served up some suggestions of their own.

Teigen ultimately settled on this extremely improbable one: that she spot LeBron James at an embroidery shop in Los Angeles getting his name put on a Jersey.

Now this was before it was officially announced that “The King” would leave the Cavs to go to another franchise. The league’s top player can have his choice of any team in the NBA and any one would be happy to have him.

Now there was a lot of talk of LeBron going to the Philadelphia 76ers or Boston Celtics…there weren’t many arguing that he’d head to LA. Yet here we are. And Teigen “called it” in a few hilarious tweets. She even provided “proof” of her made-up rumor.

Apparently some people didn’t get the memo beforehand and took Teigen’s claims seriously.

Which Teigen had the perfect response for.

As did many of her followers.

All of the joking was tickling Twitter pink…but it only got better when it was officially announced that James had indeed joined the Lakers.

Now Teigen found herself in an amazing situation: there were a bunch of people who were in on the original joke, and some who honestly thought she had inside knowledge of James’ move to the Lakers.

Which she found absolutely hilarious, of course.

It’s crazy to think that her joke actually came true.

For everyone who honestly thought that Teigen’s tweet wasn’t in jest and LeBron actually went to an embroidery shop…

…bless your hearts.

Paris Hilton Asked People To Tell Her Something She Doesn't Know And Twitter Obliged

Paris Hilton Asked People To Tell Her Something She Doesn't Know And Twitter Obliged

The art of being famous simply for just trying to become famous isn’t anything new.

And while the Kardashians have perfected the art of being well-known for basically nothing, if you remember the early-2000s, the days of T-Mobile Sidekicks and bedazzled-everything. The days when Lil’ Jon ruled the airwaves, you might remember a socialite and daughter of hotel tycoon Paris Hilton.

The OG-famous for being famous’ sake girl. And by OG I literally mean OG, she basically provided a blueprint for Kim on how to climb the fame ladder.

Kim was once friends with Paris, and before she was the champion pioneer of thrusting her family into reality fame, she was organizing Hilton’s closet and stepping out of the way of photos so other people could snap pictures with the tall socialite.

Their careers took similar trajectories – both women shot to fame after leaked sex tapes of theirs hit the market, the Kardashians took the scandal and ran with it. And while the K’s family drama is pretty much the only celeb-trash-gossip that continues to go strong, year after year, Paris’ career has comparatively stepped out the reality TV limelight and is pursuing a diverse number of other business opportunities.

She also tweets thought-provoking questions like this:

Now that could’ve been an innocent and appropriate caption for a part sassy/all glamorous photo she posted on Twitter. But people took her question to heart and truly went out of their way to tell Hilton something she probably didn’t know.

What started as a joke soon became a laundry list of obscure and interesting facts. Like, did you know that “Chef” is an incomplete title?

You might’ve forgotten this gem from geometry class.

Things got into the scientifically dense real quick, too. Fascinating nonetheless, however.

I’m going to pretend like I know what this guy is talking about right now.

Now I WISH I picked up on this before, are you serious? One, three, five, seven, nine…my God…

I knew there was a reason I inherently loved sloths. Do they not poot because they’re that lazy? That’d be amazing.

Grammatical and linguistic rulings were also being served up.

More obvious jokes began rolling in, but they were true none the less.

Check out this bit of cosmic knowledge right here. White night sky, baby.

Oh, did you want a lesson in some obscure geometry? Well then you’ve come to the right place.

Some of the facts hit a bit closer to home, however. Like this photo of Jesse Heiman and Paris.

How great would it be if Paris has that photo printed somewhere on an office desk and Jesse assumed she forgot they ever took it?

People Are Sharing Unbelievable True Stories And We're Skeptical

Into even the smallest of lives, some unbelievable wonder falls. Too bad no one will believe it. Even if you have a reputation for brutal honesty, there are some things that happen to a person in their life that you better have witnesses for. 

Twitter user @mhoye decided to give everyone an opportunity to air these special events by asking followers “what’s the least plausible story about yourself that’s true.” The request blew up, because apparently a lot of people have been sitting on some crazy-ass stories for a long, long time.

Some comments are clearly jokes, but most of the stories are almost too weird to make up—or a little too on the nose, like this story about being related to the creator of Pinocchio. Is your nose growing, @AJLorenzini?

There are several stories of muggings that turned out surprisingly well:

Though one openly incorporates lying:

Sure, the ferrets made your dad not go to work:

Does anyone believe Tommy Wiseau had an acting coach?

This just sounds like bad audience etiquette:

There are stories that incorporate famous people, like Mr. Worldwide:

And also famous locations, like a movie set contaminated with poop:

But the stories of coincidence might be the best ones:

And the stories that remind you to clear all your past debts to society ASAP:

Some of these stories seem like they were lifted from the movies:

Both rom-coms and horror flicks:

Or maybe an animated movie about plucky pets:

But basically nothing that has to do with science or medical trauma seems real. How do any of us manage to live so long?

And how do you say no to Justin Bieber? The answer is apparently that you can’t:

But I believe this one, because nothing is more useful than a towel:

And this one, because McDonald’s is like this:

Whether you believe any of these stories or not, they make a fascinating read. And amongst all the tall tales, there’s a least this one guy who brought the receipts:
