A really crappy seat at the ballpark

Bobby Grunenwald, who is the father of the high school’s quarterback and kicker, became upset because he thought the prank distracted his son, which actually made his him miss the extra point. The father proceeded to leave his seat in the bleachers, assaulted the student and swore at him.

"Because of you ... my son just missed the extra point," before striking the student in the face with a closed fist. The 17-year-old student who was hit was bleeding from his mouth after the incident.

Check this out, this guy failed to pay a $25 annual fee for rural fire protection and, as a result, firefighters let his house burn to the ground last month. Click here to read the full article.

Talk about bad timing in forgetting to pay your bills.

I’m pretty sure I’d lose it and go ape-sh*t on them. Then again, probably not…but I’d really want to.

Waiting for that important phone call

Woman gives birth, triplets in stairwell...

A 30-year-old woman was en route to a doctor's appointment when she went into labor at a train station.

She whimpered to people passing by for assistance. People passing by were hesitant to help her because she appeared to be homeless.
Luckily a Berkeley High School history teacher who was on a break, heard her cries and tore off his T-shirt in time to catch the first of the babies, a 3-pound girl born 12 weeks premature.The teacher called an ambulance, which took the baby to the hospital.
