On Sunday, a woman posted a photo online of a receipt from the restaurant where she and her mother both work as waitresses. Her mother had been telling a customer about how her family is from Italy but that her daughter had never been. This restores my faith in humanity! The customer left her a $1,000 tip on a $60.42 bill. The receipt said "Here is your ticket to Italy. Enjoy" How is that for your feel good story of the day?
Well that didn't take long! There is already a few counterfeit 100 dollar bills floating around Canada!
Police is New Westminster BC are warning the public about a counterfeit bill that has been circulating the area.
According to the police, seven bills have been found in the city in two different incidents.
Anyone who is concerned about whether or not their bills are valid, should bring it to your local bank to have it checked.
The new plastic bills launched back in November of 2011 with a promise that they would be more difficult to counterfiet than the older paper bills. Turns out that's not entirely true now!
The only difference between the new polymer bills and the counterfeit bills, are the "raised ink, a transparent strip containing metallic images that changes color when you tilt the bill, transparent text and a frosted maple leaf on the top of the ...
Maybe you've heard of Gordan Ramsay before, and his show Kitchen Nightmares. If you've seen it, you probably know how upfront Ramsay can be on the show. But he was no match for Amy Bouzaglo on this episode of Kitchen Nightmares. In fact, after the show aired, the restaurant started to get some negative feedback on their Facebook page. So the owners took to the fan page and started bashing their customers (and now claiming that they were hacked and didn't post those messages themselves).
Ramsay has never walked away from a challenge at a restaurant, but I think this time, he met his match.
Amy's Baking Company in Scottsdale, Arizona has the philosophy, "The customer is not always right." Actually, the customer is never right in her eyes! She fired an employee, for asking a question, and won't take any sort of criticism. Check out some of these Facebook ...
Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield is saying goodbye to the International Space Station later tonight. Before his departure, he released a neat music video and it really captures the breathtaking views that he's been soaking in the past 146 days.
Chris decided to rewrite some of the lyrics to David Bowie's "Space Oddity" while he plays guitar and floats around the ISS in "a most peculiar way".
He had a little help with the production though. On a YouTube post he thanked Canadian musician Emm Gryner, his son Evan, music producer Joe Corcoran and TV producer Andrew Tidby for their hard work.
Chris is expected to leave the space station just after 8pm tonight, and he should land in Kazakhstan around 11:30pm tonight. He has been in space since Dec 19th 2012.
I'm not sure why you would want to tweet about this, but tech savvy parents might find it cool. Huggies Brazil has launched a new product called TweetPee. It attaches to a baby's diaper and then sends a Tweet to its parents or caregiver when the diaper becomes wet. Parents can also reorder diapers through TweetPee. Is this something you would use?
You've seen and heard all about Charles Ramsey this week. He's the hero who freed 3 women who were being held captive in Cleveland for about a decade. Well his famous interview lives on forever now, with an auto-tuned song for us to sing along with!
I've been doing some browsing and sight seeing of houses lately, and thinking about making that "big purchase" one of these days. I always like dreaming a little bit and wondering what it would be like to have enough money to buy or build a house to my description. Some of these houses would be nice to live in though, don't you think?
I think my favorites are Dick Clark's Flintstone house, the seashell house in Mexico, and the slide house in Japan. Would you live in any of these?
Do you remember 15 year old Sarah Ellen? She became and internet star awhile back when she posted "girl with a funny talent". It was a video with her dancing eyebrows and got over 53 million views. She's back at it again with the iPhone app "Wrigley's Juicy Fruit Sweet Talk". You have to watch this!
Remember the hit way back in the day "Who Let The Dogs Out" by the Baha Men? Some people say that is the worst song of all time, other people absolutely love it. I'm impartial, however I did discover a cover version which blew my mind! This sounds NOTHING like the original (which I found out today, The Baha Men's version is actually a cover! The original artist of the song was Anslem Douglas) , and I could probably tolerate listening to this over the original. What do you think?
Kudos to "Kid Luke" for trying to DJ like a champion. But word of advise from one DJ to another, don't talk over the music dude! People aren't a very big fan of "dj's" talking over the tunes, trust me on that one! He's still pretty entertaining to watch though don't you think?
