Mom Calls Gay Bar To Figure Out What To Do When Her Son Came Out And Got Perfect Advice

Kara Coley works in a bar in Mississippi called Sipps that isn’t officially a gay bar, but is known around the area as being “gay friendly.” Coley’s been tending bar for 17 years. She’s probably answered a lot of questions and talked a lot of customers through their problems. We treat the people who give us alcohol as therapists working for tips, especially after having a few.

Then one Friday night, Coley got a call she’d been training for her whole life! Her post about the sweet exchange went viral on Facebook. Coley told the Huffington Post that it was a woman with a Northern accent, looking for answers for her gay son.

“So I got the most random phone call at the bar tonight!” writes Coley, turning it into a little script in case you want to read along at home:

Me: Good evening Thank you for calling Sipps! 

Lady on phone: Is this a gay bar?

 Me: well we are a everybody bar but yes mostly gay. 

Lady: What was the one thing you wanted from your parents when you a came out? 

Lady: My son just came out to me and I don’t want to say anything that may mess him up in the head. 

Me: well I think that you should just make sure he knows that you love and accept, wait do you accept it? 

Lady: well Umm yes if that’s what he wants. 

Me: You should definitely let him know that you love and accept him! I think everything will be ok from there! 

Lady: okay well thank you. 

Me: you are very welcome and good luck!

“17 years of bartending in gay bars on the coast! That’s definitely a first for me!” Coley concluded.

Coley’s little story has been shared hundreds of time, much to her surprise.

“I’m shocked and excited,” she told HuffPost. “Although I still don’t get it because I was just being honest and compassionate.”

People love the idea that Coley was able to help a woman trying to figure out how to love her son the best possible way:

Coley has not figured out who the mom that called was, but says if she and her son ever came to Sipps, “I would hug their necks!”

A great story about what can happen when the right person answers the phone.

This Woman Came Up With The Perfect Prank For When A Guy Asks You To 'Send Nudes'

You know how it is when you’re having a nice text conversation with someone you have a crush on or are just starting to date. Or maybe some Internet stranger who slides into your DMs. They all make the same demand.

“NUDES,” they cry. They want pictures of your naked body and feel completely entitled to having them. There’s certainly nothing wrong with sharing some sexy pics with someone if that’s your jam, but the sheer number of dudes who ask makes it seem like they’re all involved in some sort of scavenger hunt. It’s annoying.

Twitter user @saucynatt shared her own solution to the Send Nudes request, posting a conversation with some unsuspecting, but eager, fellow in which she just kept writing, “Attachment: 1 Image” over and over rather than sending a file. Much to his disappointment, nothing resembling a naked woman appeared:

It really worked a bunch of times:

The tweet went viral, and it’s apparently not that uncommon to mess with men whose brains are deadened by their desire to see digital areola. There were other pranks in the replies; some suggested the download that will never download:

Or the message that never sends:

But most just complimented her on the extremely good troll:

There’s nothing that seems to stop men asking for nudes, so at least enjoy the troll.

Our Christmas Wishes Came True And McDonalds Will Deliver In 2017

We’ve all been there. It’s late. You’re in a comfortable cocoon of sweatpants. But suddenly, the crving strikes; you need chicken mcnuggets and fries, stat. But what are you to do? You simply cannot leave the couch, and you might be a little drunk. The McDonald’s drive-thru is not an option. 

…We’ll tell you what you do. You order McDonald’s FOR DELIVERY. Yes, this is real life. 2016 threw some nasty curveballs our way, so we deserved some happy news. 

2017 is going to be a good year because McDonald’s announced that the chain will be testing a delivery service in select cities, beginning in January. 

Don’t get too excited just yet. Chances are, you may not get to get Big Macs sent to your door right away — it may take some time before delivery service hits your city. 

To no one’s surprise, Florida is the first lucky state that will benefit from this miracle. 

McDonald's To Invest $ 3 Billion In Renovations, 1500 New Restaurants

Attention, residents of Orlando, Tampa, and Miami. 200 restaurants are partnering with UberEats to bring you those glorious golden-brown fries, hangover Egg McMuffins, 

As with other partnering restaurants, customers can track orders and delivery time through the app. 

If the service is successful in Florida, McDonald’s will expand delivery to other cities. 

Okay, Florida, DO NOT MESS THIS UP FOR US. Our late night McFlurry binges depend on it.

Anna Kendrick Came To Gigi Hadid's Defense On Twitter In The Most Anna Kendrick Way

Far too often in Hollywood, we witness celebrities tearing one another down, which is a pretty bad strategy, given that fellow stars are the only ones who can actually understand each other’s lives of luxury (and endless harassment and violation of privacy). 

We mere mortals (and the media) have no problem judging them and their life choices, as we’ve never lived in the public eye. Frankly, we even enjoy feasting on their drama. But, in the face of our endless judgment, Hollywood needs to stick together. That’s why we’re loving how Anna Kendrick supported Gigi Hadid’s spurt of #GirlPower this week. 

Disturbing footage surfaced yesterday of model / Instagram phenom Gigi Hadid being harassed and lifted off the ground by a man in Milan. 

When security somehow failed to get involved, Hadid put her elbow (and boxing skills) to good use.  

Creeps don’t get away with touching this model badass. 

Headlines covering the footage, however, slammed Hadid for the incident rather than the man involved. 

Gig
google news

Several tabloids described her “lashing out” and described her attacked as a “serial prankster” — as if randomly man-handling a woman on the street is an acceptable ‘prank.’ SMH, world. 

However, Twitter was quick to come to her defense, as, you know, she was completely justified in defending herself from physical street harassment. 

And Queen of Twitter Anna Kendrick even got involved to her support for Hadid. 

As always, she knows exactly how we feel. Resentful of naturally gorgeous women, but totally proud of Gigi and her quick reflexes. 

You tell ’em, Anna. 

And Gigi just empowered the hell out of us with her tweet addressing the incident. 

Yaas, Gigi. Props to you and your elbow.

Body Shamers Started Hating On This Olympic Gymnast And The Internet Came To Her Aid

You have to be a special kind of idiot to body shame an Olympian. Their bodies, for years, have been stretched and developed and pushed to the limits of the human anatomy for them to be the best at what they do.

But because the internet is full of people who like to sit back and say that they could do something better than a f*cking OLYMPIC ATHLETE, we’re treated to wonderful tweets like this.

Which translates to:

“Alexa Moreno, another example of pseudo athletes sent by the CONADE [Mexico’s National Commission for Physical Culture and Sport] just to fullfill the quota.”

Alexa Moreno, a Mexican gymnast, is getting hated on by people like the moron above, for being “fat” and “out of shape.”

Despite the fact that she’s able to perform amazing feats of athleticism like this:

…bullies are still being total jerk faces.

“Exclusive pictures of Alexa Moreno at the end of her gymnastic routine.”

However, the internet wasn’t going to let a bunch of jabronis roast an elite, professional athlete.

“Congratulations to #AlexaMoreno for your great participation in the Olympics! One more reason to be proud despite all the criticism.”

Seriously, how stupid do you have to be to insult an Olympian?!

Tattoo Artists Came Clean About The Worst Tattoos They've Ever Given

I’ve heard hundreds of stories about tattoos people regret getting, but a recent thread on Reddit asked tattoo artists on the site, “What’s the worst tattoo you’ve ever given someone?”

A few vets chimed in on pieces they’ve done in their early days, and other uses shared stories from friends in the industry.

A lot of stories echoed this one, with the customer refusing to listen to the advice of the artist

I did a cover up that I wasn’t proud of, but that’s what the client wanted. A couple came in to the shop asking for a cover up of an ex bf. She showed me and surely enough, a big guy’s name on her side hip. The good part was it was done in a light blue ink, easy to cover.

I already started getting ideas in my head of what to cover it with. Guy steps in and says, “No. We just want a star over it”. The name was about 5-6 inches long and I explained that a star that big would have to be, at least… 8 inches big to fully cover the name. Both said yes to this.

My boss walks over and gets on my ass for not suggesting something else, but I explained to him that that’s what they wanted. Both looked at him and nodded. By the time it was done, this small, petite girl had a blue star covering her entire hip area. It looked cheap, tacky, ghetto mad, just stupid. After that, I refused to do cover ups if the client doesn’t listen to reason.

 MRW I finally catch a Magikarp in PokemonGo and see you need 400 candies to evolve it...

Some used to the tattoo as an extension of their entrepreneurial spirit

Asked my artist this. He told me that years ago some stripper came in looking to have vines and roses tattooed on that would come out of her butthole and curl up her back. He asks why not just get the roses on her back and butt, but she insists it must come out of her anus. He reluctantly does the tattoo for a a high price and said it looked pretty good too. But curiosity got the better of him after a while and he asks why she insists on having it come out of her butthole.

Her response was both the strangest and smartest reasoning I could have heard for such a tattoo. She would dance and she figured the guys would ask “hey how far does that tat go” to which she could say “for ten bucks I’ll show you”. So the dudes pay up a ten spot, she shows her asshole real fast and done deal. She’s richer and they looked at an asshole. My tattoo artist is not proud of that job.

This one was actually heartbreaking

I also asked my artist this question while I was in the chair. His story is actually kind of sad – he was working in a shop somewhere “down south”, and they used to have this Eastern-European sounding guy come in a lot with a string of beautiful Asian girls. The girls would get the same tattoos he had – they stopped serving him after this happened a few times.

The first time they assumed it was a couple tattoo, second time that he has poor judgement, but after that it started to look a lot like a human trafficker marking his “property”. He said one of the girls didn’t even know the tattoo was permanent. He probably regrets tattooing some of those girls.

One user actually requested a bad tattoo, and wrote about his experience of getting shut down

Best interaction I had was with an artist who told me no on a coverup.

I have a big cross and prayer on my arm. I don’t regret it, but I feel like i’ve outgrown it a bit. So I went to this guy and he was skeptical. He said it would have to be the perfect idea to pull it off. So I told him about an idea I had for a totem pole.

A few sketches later and he and me sit to draw over it all with sharpie. I loved it. I thought it was amazing. I couldn’t wait. I asked him when we could start. And he told me he wouldn’t. He told me I could have an amazing tattoo somewhere else, or a “Meh” cover up and this was too good of an idea to waste on something that wasn’t stellar. He explained that it could work, but there would be lettering from the prayer in negative spaces which would fuck it all up.

I thought I would be upset or disappointed, but he earned all of my business forever for being honest about the entire situation.

We start the full calf sleeve in November.

Many were subject to tattoos that didn’t have much thought put into them…

My sister in law just put a Pokemon valor tattoo on someone’s neck.

At all

The worst tattoo I’ve done is “An” beside his butthole and then “s” on the other side of it.

Unfortunately, when being a tattoo artist is your job, sometimes you need to do whatever pays the bills

I asked the tattoo artist this question while I had mine done. Someone he worked with got an estimate request for a vagina to be tattooed onto his taint. She gave him an estimate thinking he’d think it too high and moved on.

Turned out the other places he went to first quoted him higher, so he accepted. The guy I was talking too said he’d walk by her cubicle and see her bent over with the guy’s legs up, and she said she was fine the first hour or so until she took her first break. Then it was torture for her to finish

 

And a few stated that if people were going to spend money on a bad tattoo, they may as well be the ones to collect it

I’m coming into this thread real late, but I’m a Tattooer, and I have two that come to mind. The first one was “FUCK LOVE” across a Hispanic guys knuckles. I guess he had just broken up with his girl, and was really heated. Tried to talk him out of it, said his mind was made up, figured he might as well spend his money with me, and get it done nice. Gave him what he wanted and sent him home.

The other one was on a biker girl that got “Property of (guy’s name)” on her lower back. Talking huge though, literally half her back. Same deal as the last one. Might as well get it done right and might as well be the one that makes the money. Apparently her and the guy had only been dating for two months, and she had just had a baby with another guy. Even asked her when the guy went outside to smoke if she was sure, and that she could back out if she wanted to and made sure she wasn’t getting pressured into it.

She was just genuinely down as fuck for the guy, absolutely stoked to get that tattoo. Hope they’re still together cause there’s no way in fuck that giant tattoo is getting covered.

But most at least knew what their tattoo meant

Not an artist, but one of my friends asked for ‘Love, Laugh and Live’ in Chinese script; it took a few days before someone pointed out to her that she actually had ‘Please choose one of the tattoos below’ in Chinese script on her right arm.
