Woman Captures Bible Group 'Mob' Crashing Airbnb and Stealing From the Bathroom

Woman Captures Bible Group 'Mob' Crashing Airbnb and Stealing From the Bathroom

Twitter user Mary Numair shared security cam footage and photos on the social media platform of a group of 25 or so members of a “Bible Group” who crashed a three-bedroom home that was rented on Airbnb.

Their behavior is the kind of stuff that would probably get you banned from ever using the service, and make property owners think twice about using the platform to lease out their space.

It all began when a mob of 25 or so people showed up at the house. There were supposed to  only be four.

image

Mary live-tweeted the entire thing and captured the downright childish, and illegal behavior, from the house guests. 

Warning: This bizarre story is pretty rage-inducing, so if you can’t stand the sight of people acting like entitled weirdos, then this might not be the one for you.

This image that Mary uploaded shows about “half” of the people who attempted to stay on the property.

image

Ben Newman, Mary’s boyfriend, saw on his Nest camera that the group was way larger than the one he had agreed to accommodate in the home. Ben decided to ring the individual who booked the home and it turns out that the group was just there for a “quick Bible study,” and that they would be leaving shortly.

“So he calls the guy and is like ‘Hey man, not to be rude but that looks like a lot more than four. My house can’t accommodate large events.’ The guy is like “OHh gosh, I’m so sorry. We’re doing a quick Bible study and then they’re leaving.”

image

As Mary tells the story, Ben “begrudgingly” allowed the guests to stay, but, after monitoring his CCTV camera, saw that even more people started showing up at the property. Ben, having already given a courtesy call to the person who booked the space, decided to call Airbnb and let them know of the situation.

“Finally he calls Airbnb and they’re like “Are you sure you can’t accommodate them?” Literal dozens of people on a small rural septic system, nah.”

image

The 2014 “Company of the Year” contacted the booker and let them know that they couldn’t have six times the amount of people in the space, but the customer came back and said that there was a “verbal agreement” in place that 25 people could be allowed to stay on the premises. There wasn’t.

Mary continued, “So! Airbnb calls back the guy, calls my boyfriend back and says ‘The guy says you had a verbal agreement to let 25 or so people stay.’ What the f–k. It’s a three-bedroom house. No. F–k no.”

Airbnb then called the guest and told him that he and his party would need to leave. It didn’t end there, however.

image

The house guests didn’t feel like they were obligated to leave the property, so they stayed. The “head” of the group went outside and put his pillow in the car and then went back in the house like nothing was wrong. 

Mary couldn’t believe the inconsideration the group displayed. “Oh also, the guy said ‘We’re just a large Christian Bible study group. What does it matter if it’s more than four?’ Like what the f–k does loving Jesus mean, you get away with this s–t.”

Their reluctance to leave forced Mary and Ben to show up on the property to make sure  the group had left, as they had been instructed to by them and Airbnb.

image

When they arrived, no one had left, nor did they seem in a hurry to do so. To add insult to injury, they stole all of the toiletries out of the bathroom.

Airbnb then messaged the home owners, by that time, it was 11:22pm, “I know the guests really violated the rules for having additional guests on the listing but I’m sure it’s not that easy for the guest to leave the listing. I would like to ask what are the possible options we can give to guest as a courtesy … it’s late at night, 11.22pm.”

Mary tweeted that the guests clearly didn’t expect her and her boyfriend would show up.

image
“Oh by the way, they had a few people sneak out the back but there’s a lot of people still here. He wasn’t aware that we were coming so that’s why he lied about that.”

It wasn’t until after they left that Mary and Ben learned they had stolen all of the toiletries from the bathroom.

After the entire insane ordeal was over with, Mary said that at least Airbnb made things right.

image

She responded to a Twitter user who asked if she felt the company “backed her up” as a host, “Yeah. Especially once we made it clear that we had video proof they were wilfully breaking a major house rule and repeatedly lying about it.”

The company also refunded Ben the $ 75 for the stolen bathroom supplies, as well as the $ 621 for the booking fee that they lost on account of their house guests, all 25 of them, leaving early.

At the very least, Mary had a sense of humor about the whole thing.

Dictionary.com Just Roasted Kylie Jenner For Being Called A 'Self-Made' Woman

Dictionary.com Just Roasted Kylie Jenner For Being Called A 'Self-Made' Woman

At 20 years old, I was finally getting my braces taken off and changing college majors. Kylie Jenner, at 20, became pregnant with Travis Scott, delivered baby Stormi, and became a billionaire.

I was worrying about whether or not I’d be able to afford gas for my ’97 Ford Taurus when prices skyrocketed to over $ 4 a gallon. Meanwhile, Jenner is getting written up in Forbes magazine.

The social-media, famous-for-being-famous juggernaut managed to leverage her glammed-out plastic surgery #goals and Kardashian legacy to build a wildly successful cosmetics business worth a whopping $ 900 million fortune.

And she did it all in less than 3 years. That’s some serious money management from someone so young. 

The financial magazine was so impressed with Kylie’s success in business that they listed her as number 27 in a profile on “America’s Women Billionaires,” where they covered America’s Richest Self-Made women.

They made it a point to call Kylie’s success “self-made” and said that she’s on track to become the youngest woman to ever become a billionaire.

But some people are having a hard time swallowing the “self-made” portion of that headline.

There’s a saying that a friend of mine uses for people who believe they are self-made but forget that their life of privilege and the family they were born into played a huge part in their success. It’s that they were born on third-base but believe they worked just as hard to make it to home as the person who fought to get up to bat in the first place.

I’d imagine that that’s why a lot of people are having some difficulty accepting the claim that Jenner is a “self-made” billionaire.

But there are some Twitter users who think that Dictionary.com’s salty response was uncalled for and just an instance of jealous pettiness that diminishes the success of the young cosmetics mogul.

They think that those “hating” on Jenner should take a page out of her book and become a “self-made billionaire” just like her.

But there were others who pointed out that Jenner had obvious advantages not afforded to everyone else, and there are plenty.

To show just how astronomical Jenner’s success is, someone pointed out some other notably wealthy women in the US.

That’s right, Kylie Jenner has more than doubled Beyonce’s net worth and has surpassed her older sister Kim, who was largely responsible for the family’s super stardom.

Her success has flabbergasted many people online.

Some tried to break down just how Jenner and the Kardashian sisters secured their fortunes.

While others were less concerned with how the sisters made their money and more concerned with how to secure some for themselves:

Must be nice to be a self-made billionaire.

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.

And the call to the shop.

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.

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.

Woman Wants Parents To Ask Their Babies For 'Consent' Before Changing Diapers

Woman Wants Parents To Ask Their Babies For 'Consent' Before Changing Diapers

I remember being five years old and hate, hate, hating having to hang my coat up in the closet. I screamed to my mother one day that if I ever had kids of my own, after the millionth time she bothered me about hanging my coat up, that I would never ever ask my kids to clean up after themselves because it was the absolute worst and in no way fun.

I eventually came around because mom and dad were the boss of me and although I still lazily throw my clothes on the floor, more often than not I get embarrassed enough to not want to live like a slob and put them where they belong.

But my own childhood words are biting me in the butt right about now because my son also loves causing a mess. His idea of “playing” with blocks is to dump them all over the floor, kick them around for no longer than six seconds, then resume stomping around my apartment, pretending to be a T-Rex.

My toddler is just a giant bag of enthusiasm and stubbornness and I’m constantly trying to work to reroute that stubbornness into non-garbage social behavior. Yes he cries, yes he throws tantrums, yes he wants to have chocolate and gummy bears (which he refers to as “purple snacks,” regardless of their color) before he’s had an actual meal, but I don’t relent.

Now I don’t claim to be an expert on parenting, and I guess we’ll have to wait a couple of decades to see how my toddler and new baby daughter eventually turn out. But I have to admit I scoffed to myself and shook my head after I saw this headline where sexual consent expert, Deanna Carson, said that parents should ‘ask’ their baby’s permission before changing their diaper.

There’s an obvious joke to be made about this and it’s that babies can’t really understand a gosh darn word you say or really signal whether they approve of something or not. If they did, my daughter would answer with a cooing, “I AM” every time I ask with sugar in my voice who the cutest baby is.

But after the hullabaloo of that ridiculous headline died down, Caron’s “real” point was made and on the surface, it seems like a totally reasonable one: to train children from a young age about the importance of consent.

Waiting for their response is supposed to instill a sense in the child that their response is an important one and is supposed to give them a greater autonomy over their bodies when they’re older.

Now there are a lot of people who think that sounds good. Heck, even I did for a second.

I don’t ask my son if he wants to go to the bathroom, I pick him up and take him to the toilet and try to make going number 1 or number 2 into a fun game. There are some days he would fight me tooth and nail begging to get off the toilet, kicking and screaming. Then, five minutes later, he pees his pants. Whenever I asked him, previously, if he had to pee, he’d say no, then come rushing to me minutes later saying, “pee pee, pee pee” with already wet underpants.

My 1-month-old infant cries hysterically when there’s poop in her diaper, signaling to me that something is wrong. I put her on her changing table and then start singing our family’s, “let’s change the stinky diapey” song, removing her stanky clothes and poo-soaked diaper. She hates that just as much and starts wailing. So if I asked her consent before removing her diaper and she disapproves of it and I do it anyway, aren’t I just teaching her that no matter what she says or does, her consent ultimately doesn’t matter, and with someone who loves her unequivocally? 

You can’t let most adults do whatever they want, let alone give children a “say” in what they want to do. My son will eat bananas, grape tomatoes, and Maria cookies all day if I asked him what he wanted to eat. He’d sit in front of an iPad for hours. Oftentimes, he doesn’t even know what he wants. For two weeks he begged me everyday to go to the zoo. The day I hyped him up to go, he was ecstatic, then, at the last minute, he said, “No ZOO!” and then threw himself on the floor like a big drama queen.

30 minutes later, when we were at the park walking around, and he saw the animals and other kids playing, he was an overjoyed little nugget. I mean I can’t count the number of times I did something as an adult that I thought I didn’t want to do that ended up being awesome.

So she might be coming from a totally good place, but it doesn’t mean that it’s not a completely idiotic idea. There are better ways to teach children about consent. And I can tell you that my toddler already has a strong sense of personal autonomy. Just watch him wriggle away from random kids at the park who want to hug him or push off of relatives who give overbearing smooches – he’s got autonomy to spare.

And I’d wager plenty of other kids do as well. What do you think?

This Woman Asked Her Boyfriend For A Paper Clip And Got A Lesson On Gender

Look, people are different, and there’s no need to make generalizations based on gender. But sometimes it’s fun to.

Like in this tweet about how men caption Instagram posts obscenely, while women seem to actually want to keep their partners:

Or this one, about how men are physically and psychically unprepared to pick out a simple pair of leggings:

But this tweet from Twitter user @CiaraTobin may be the simplest iteration of the genre ever. She shared text messages with her boyfriend Riley, in which she asks for a paper clip and ends up discovering more than she wants to know about his organizational habits:

I’m gonna be honest, this isn’t that far off from how I store my office supplies, but I still find Tobin’s loving exasperation with her man very funny.

And everyone else finds it extremely relatable, because they’ve lived it (both men and women):

At least one other person had a similar story saved and ready to go:

Wherever you are on the gender spectrum, you know if this is you.

Now, where are my paper clips?
