Bonehead Of The Day

An Arizona man was arrested for selling a home that he was renting on Craigslist.

A 58-year-old woman and her husband gave the man a $3,000 down payment on the house and he turned over a set of keys.  BUT... The keys didn't open the doors.... so they called the cops.

Then they called a name that was on the lease that turned out to be the actual homeowner. The owner said the man didn't have permission to sell the house.

Cops arrested the man and put him in jail on $5,000 bond.

Woman Getting Robbed Offers To Help Thief

An Oklahoma woman is getting national attention after she turned the tables on a thief who stole her wallet.

She was grocery shopping when a man stole from her. She approached him and told him  that her wallet was missing out of her purse and he was the only other person in the aisle. She gave the man an ultimatum. She told him he could either give the wallet back to her and she would buy his groceries or she would take his picture and call the police.

The thief stared at her for a second and he reached into his pocket and handed the wallet to her.

Then, she spent $27 on the man's groceries and he started crying. The last thing he said to her was that he was embarrassed, he had kids, was broke and was sorry.

The woman never wanted any attention over what happened. But since she posted the story on Facebook, it has been shared online by thousands.

She wants the story to inspire people to be compassionate.

Hero Mailman.. Saves Burning Home, Then Finishes Delivering The Mail

A Detroit mailman saved a woman's house from burning down while he was on his route.

He saw smoke coming from her home and ran into it to see if anyone was inside.  He grabbed a garden house from outside, hooked it up, took it inside, and started spraying the fire.  He held it down until the real firefighters showed up.

He then picked his mail bag back up and finished his route as though nothing had happened.

Eat Chocolate To Banish Greys

Experts say you can eat certain foods to prevent your hair from going gray and make it sofer. 

Eating chocolate can stop your hair from going gray because it has melanin which is responsible for keeping your hair colorful and vibrant. 

Eating red meat can help treat thin and limp hair because it has iron.  And eating salmon can help make your hair softer because it has Omega-3 and 6.

Need A Excuse For Calling In Sick... Here's Some

Careerbuilder.com released a study that showed nearly 30% of employees go to work when they are sick so they can use those days for when they are feeling well.

They surveyed 3,500 workers and 2,100 hiring managers about how and when people call in sick. Employers said more employees call in sick around the holidays, with December being the month most people call in sick.


Here are some strange excuses people used to call in sick.

Their false teeth flew out the window while driving down the highway.

Their favorite football team lost on Sunday so needed Monday to recover.

They were quitting smoking and were grouchy.

Someone glued their doors and windows shut so they couldn't leave the house to go to work.

Bit their tongue and couldn't talk.

A swarm of bees surrounded their car and couldn't get out.

The chemical in turkey made him fall asleep.

An employee was so angry he didn't come in because he was afraid he would hurt someone.

One person received a threatening phone call from the electric company and had to report it to the FBI.

Had to finish Christmas shopping.

Fake eye was falling out of its socket.

Got lost and ended up in another state.

Couldn't decide what to wear.
