Arby’s Employee Spots Helpless 97-Year-Old Vet, Decides To Slip In Something Extra With Meal

At 97-years-old, World War II veteran Doug know what he likes. That’s why he shows up at the Chandler, Arizona Arby’s fast-food restaurant almost every day. There’s hardly a day that goes by that the employees at the fast-food restaurant don’t see the meat lover walking into the establishment for his “regular” order. Because he has become such a staple for the Arizona location, the employees decided they wanted to know more about him, so they sat down and started a conversation with the war hero.

The employees took a moment out of their busy lives to sit down with the veteran and ask a few pointed questions. The first being: “Hey, Mr. Doug, we just want to know what keeps you coming back to this Arby’s location?” reported Fox 10.

Although the employees expected a response that would be fun like how Arby’s knows how to serve meat that he likes, Doug came back with a comment that reminded the workers how short life can be and how we need to appreciate every little thing we have while it is still here with us – because it could all go away tomorrow.

Doug told them that this Chandler Arby’s location was “the only place I can get a sandwich or get something or anything else to eat that doesn’t hurt my stomach.”

Because of his stomach problem, Doug orders the same item every day and sits at the same table chowing it down as if he is part of the clockwork.

Exemplar employee Travis Coye said, “He has a stomach disorder. This is, unfortunately, the only thing he can eat.”

Another employee, Christina Garnage, who has a heart of gold and works as the restaurant manager, said: “He comes in with a walker, as soon as we see him come to the doors, we try (to) grab the doors for him.”

Garnage added that when she started working at the location about 32 months ago, Doug started making it part of his daily routine shortly thereafter.

“He’s gone through a lot being a veteran, coming in, being in a retirement home, but he doesn’t have family,” she said.

Because Doug has been largely forgotten since risking his life for America and the world back in the 1940s, the Arizona Arby’s location has done what the government should have done long ago – they adopted him as part of their family.

This week the Arby’s location called FOX 10 in to snap a photo of the employees presented Doug with a $200 gift card for no particular reason – just to show him that they care. They told him lunch was on them.

“He was shocked, hardly had anything to say,” another manager said.

Because Doug has no one at his advanced age, the Arby’s crew have given him their phone numbers and told him to call day or night. If he can’t make it to the restaurant for any reason, they’ll deliver his favorite meal to his door.

But now the manager has made an offer that Doug cannot refuse – they have awarded him free Arby’s for the rest of his life.

Janitor Who Is 77-Years-Old Kept Secret For Decades Until Staff Finds Out And Confronts Her

Janitor Who Is 77-Years-Old Kept Secret For Decades Until Staff Finds Out And Confronts Her

No one was expecting from much from 77-year-old Frances Buzzard when she started working as a janitor for Belle Elementary School in West Virginia. Asides the fact that they expected her age to be a constraint, everyone thought she would be just another custodian. But she ended up proving them all wrong by the time she started working.

Buzzard was doing beyond her regular janitorial duties. She would polish furniture till they sparkled and before long, every both staff and students were endeared to this wonderful old woman and her incredible old school work ethic.

But it turned out that this incredible old woman was keeping a very sad secret from everyone. But as the saying goes, nothing can be kept secret forever. One day the principal dug up this part of her life she has kept hidden from everyone for so long and she had no choice but to confront her with the truth.

Buzzard was probably confused when her name was announced over the school’s loudspeaker that she was needed in the cafeteria. She knew all the staff and students were in the hall having an assembly. She complied and went in thinking she was needed to carry out one of her numerous duties.

But what she met when she walked into the cafeteria was well beyond her wildest imaginations. More than 200 students and staff were waiting for her with a surprise celebration for her 77th birthday. It turned out that the principal had discovered that the old woman has never had any birthday celebration all her life and together with the staff and student, decided to do something really spectacular for her on this occasion.

It was the very first birthday party of her life.

She was met at the door with a loud “happy birthday” song then a cart full of cookies and cupcakes were brought in from the kitchen. Frances was given a glittery tiara and a birthday sash before she was guided to a chair at the very center of the room. she was indeed the star of the occasion.

Soon it was time for the highlight of the show. The curtains on one side of the room opened up to reveal a large screen and soon everyone in the room was “aawwing” as slideshow photo documentary of Frances history started plating on the screen. Many of the Photos detailed important historic events throughout her long and eventful life.

One of the photos was that of Frances raising a flag at Iwo Jima standing next to Neil Armstrong on the moon. She was indeed a sassy young lady during her heydays.

Frances recalled growing up in a very poor family where her parents would never afford a proper birthday or even celebrate Christmas.

“I don’t remember any. They didn’t do things like that. We didn’t have Christmas parties either. They would get us fruits and nuts when they could afford it.” she told Charleston Gazette-Mail:

The closest thing to a birthday she could remember was a cold and icy attempt at a birthday party and nobody showed up.

“They had me one, but it was so icy and cold, nobody came.”

But this was payback for all the years she has missed. This lovely surprise was enough to fill in for some of the happy occasions like this she missed when she was young. She was indeed very elated by such a remarkable gesture from the school.

It was a well thought out reward by the principal, staff, and student for such a diligent old janitor. We say thumbs up to them for making the old woman smile like this.

Man Flew His Drone To The Top Of A Wind Turbine. What He Found Hidden On The Top Is Going Viral

Man Flew His Drone To The Top Of A Wind Turbine. What He Found Hidden On The Top Is Going Viral

Operating a drone can be a magnificent way to get to know your neighborhood. You get to fly around and take personalized tours beyond what the features in Google Maps can give you. You can lift up so high that you can see the tops of buildings, the tallest trees, and if you’re in the right areas, the tops of wind turbines too.

But be careful of what you might see up there.

Recently, a man shared his video of one of the most bizarre views I’ve ever seen. After it was shared at DailyPicksandFlicks on Youtube, it garnered over 3 million views in a brief period of time. Once you take a peek at the weird thing he saw up there, you’ll probably be surprised it doesn’t have more.

Wind Turbines can often be found in fairly rural areas, where a company is converting the wind’s kinetic energy into electrical energy. It’s hard to find them in high populated areas, as these things are a force to be reckoned with—often over 200 feet tall with a pretty wide girth as well.

That’s probably why the cameraman wanted to see the top of a wind turbine when he discovered it. Well, it was that and that the turbine’s door on the ground level was open. Since he didn’t see anyone working around the area, he decided to fly the drone up to the top of the turbine and see if he can figure out why the door was open.

You know what he saw? A bald man wearing a white t-shirt and cargo shorts lied on his back on top of the wind turbine, just sunbathing away! It was clear that he wasn’t doing any work up there (both from his relaxed clothes and from his relaxed posture) and instead, he was just doing a little chilling out. What else could be more calming than lying on your back on top of a wind turbine? It’s not like anything could go wrong up there, right?

Once the man on top of the turbine recognized that the operator of the drone was staring at him, the man leaned up and gave the camera a nice little wave. But after a few minutes, he got a little less friendly. That might be why everybody loved the video so much because it seemed like the man on the turbine felt angry that his peace and quiet was being interrupted.

I could only imagine what made this man try to relax up here in the first place. And also, has he done this before? Does anybody even know this man, or was he just in the right place at the right time for some good old-fashioned sunbathing? So many questions, so little answers. But at least we’ve got our imaginations to fill in the blanks.

Who do you think this man was? How often do you think he comes up here? And would you consider lying on top of a wind turbine where a fall means certain death?

Cops Come Up With A Plan To Get Grandma With Dementia Home Without Embarrassing Her

Roberta’s daughter was extremely worried when her mother didn’t return home after taking one of her walks.

The 81-year-old great-grandmother lives with family up to three generations after her in Maryland, and she has dementia though she maintains a relatively active life.

Usually, Roberta goes for walks on her own and comes home just fine, but this time, she didn’t.

Concerned, Roberta’s daughter rang up the Charles County sheriff’s office and told them what happened.

Five officers hurried out to find her, and they spent a good forty minutes calling her name as they clambered through a wooded location.

Finally, they heard her call back in response.

The officers rushed towards her and saw that she was walking calming along a small path nearby.

She seemed very confused as officers removed some branches that had gotten stuck in her hair.

They realized, then, that they did not want to embarrass her by telling her what happened.

So they said they happened to also be on a walk and offered to help her get home.

As the officers brought her back to their police car, they walked with her hand-in-hand and made small talk, asking her about her secret to her healthy and long life. (Her answer? Diet and physical activity!)

Officer Morrison, one of them, felt particularly connected to Roberta, as he himself is very close with his own grandmother and couldn’t help feeling intrigued by all her wisdom and experiences.

When Roberta got home safely, her entire family – from her daughter all the way to her great-granddaughter – were beyond thrilled that she was okay.

Roberta, on the other hand, didn’t see what all the fuss was about.

She said she was fine and told her daughter that all she did was go for a nice walk with the kind officers.

Officer Morrison also was in a picture standing next to Roberta as they held hands and walked earlier.

The photo was taken by Sergeant Black, who was very happy to have taken it and thinks it’s quite a nice picture.

The 60-year age difference between the photo’s subjects makes it all the more interesting.

The Charles County sheriff’s office decided to share the picture, and a short version of the story, on their Facebook page.

The status mentioned that police officers face various situations every day, and not all of them end well, so this happy ending for such a scary situation was more than welcome for these officers.

They talked about how grateful they were to have found Roberta in one piece. This post has since earned more than 222,000 likes, with shares and comments abound!

Charles County Sheriff’s Office / Facebook

It is definitely true that the police deal with countless difficult cases on a daily basis.

It’s rewarding for them to be able to do something like this that has such a wholesome, happy ending.

The fact that these kind officers were also so careful, thoughtful, and sweet to Roberta makes it all the more enjoyable for us to hear about.

Angry Dad Sees Son Is Being Bullied, Chokes One Boy And Throws Another Down A Half-Pipe

In dramatic video footage posted to Facebook, an unknown man can be seen physically assaulting a couple of children at a skate park.

The assault is believed to be the man’s response to his child being bullying. Authorities are still investigating the incident.

They’re asking anyone with any information to come forward immediately.

A middle-aged man with dark hair and wearing sunglasses was sitting on a wall at a skate park in Goonellabah, near Lismore, on the NSW North Coast.

He sits beside a child thought to be his son.

One of the dozens of preteen boys skating, biking, and standing nearby says something, presumably to the man or the child beside him. It’s unclear what was said, however.

In response, the man is seen jumping up and placing one hand against the throat of a child riding a black and green scooter. He wrestles the scooter away from the child.

dad bully

He can then be seen rushing up to another child on a scooter and using the apprehended green scooter to push that child off into one of the skatepark’s deep skating bowls.

The man tosses the green scooter off in one direction and the fallen boy’s scooter off in the opposite direction.

The video cuts as the man appears to be continuing to go after the boy he had pushed into the bowl.

The video of the attack was posted to a local community group’s Facebook page. The incident was also reported to the Richmond Police District.

So far, authorities have been told that a group of 12-year-old boys had verbally abused, threatened, and chased away another boy that Sunday afternoon at the skatepark.

When the boy returned the same day with the man in the video, who’s presumed to be his dad, the group of bullies continued to taunt the boy.

The man responded with the physical attack seen in the video.

Crime Stoppers is urging anyone with information about the incident or who can identify the man in the video to contact them or the Richmond Police District immediately.

Every Parent Should Read This Mom’s Warning About Aerosol Sunscreens

Sunscreen is incredibly important when you’re going out under the hot sun.

Even when it’s cloudy, sunblock of some kind is important, especially for young kids and toddlers.

We can’t underestimate the strength and danger of sun exposure, especially now with our thinning ozone layer.

That’s why there are so many products available that you can use to protect your kids from the deadly sun’s rays.

Rebecca Canon knew she needed one of them for her little baby, Kyla, who is only fourteen months old.

She and Kyla were visiting her sister. It was a pretty hot day in Newfoundland, Canada, so she borrowed some sunscreen spray from her sister to use for Kyla.

Rebecca browsed the label of the sunscreen first, and it proclaimed that it was meant for kids aged six months and above, so it was fine for Kyla.

It was called the Banana Boat Kids Sunscreen Spray and it had SPF 50 protection.

She sprayed some onto her hands first, then rubbed the spray carefully onto the cheeks and nose of her baby girl, making sure to keep away from her eyes.

As the day progressed, Rebecca couldn’t help being aware of the fact that Kyla’s face was getting more and more red.

The next day when she woke up, her entire face was swollen and red, and she was even getting blisters.

Hurriedly, Rebecca took her to a hospital emergency room. Shockingly, Kyla’s diagnosis was of second-degree burns.

Rebecca was perplexed by this revelation, as no one in the family had any signs of sunburns at all.

A dermatologist was quick to uncover the likely truth behind the situation.

Kyla had received a caustic burn as a result of the sunscreen she was using, meaning there may have been some kind of dangerous chemical in it.

Thankfully, despite this startling diagnosis, Kyla will likely not deal with long-term issues and also does not seem to have any scarring.

Rebecca decided to contact the Banana Boat company and issue a complaint regarding the ill effects of their sunscreen.

The company responded by saying they take these concerns seriously and will be investigating as needed.

This eventually prompted Health Canada to perform its own investigation due to an increased number of skin issue reports from the company’s sun-protection items.

A wide range of different examinations, however, did not show any reason to be concerned with the sunscreen products.

Unfortunately, for now, it seems like this was more of a freak incident than one that implicates the manufacturers, and it is likely that Kyla had a severe allergic reaction.

If that’s the case, then how can you avoid all these issues?

Your best option is to always patch test a product before using it.

Babies and young children – and even adults – can have surprising allergic reactions or very sensitive skin, so testing before full coverage use is always a good idea.

In America, most products for personal care are unregulated, for the most part, with the last relevant law passing way back in 1938, so patch testing is all the more crucial!

People Want This Driver Arrested After Seeing What They Did To Kids At School Bus Stop

People Want This Driver Arrested After Seeing What They Did To Kids At School Bus Stop

Drivers have a huge responsibility when they are on the road. They know this, but there are times that they don’t seem to care. This is one of the main concerns of parents when their children are leaving the house for school. Sometimes, no matter how careful they are, they would come across an irresponsible driver that can put their lives at risk.

A video is going viral that gave parents a reason to worry. This is surveillance footage captured outside of the Cota-Robles house located in Gilford, New Hampshire.

Two young boys are headed off to school. They are walking down the driveway and the bus can be seen pulling up on the other side of the road. It is clear that the bus has its stop signs out but it seems like someone didn’t see it and this almost robbed these boys their young lives!

As seen on the footage, the boys are accompanied by their mom, Lindsay Cota-Robles. Once they are almost at the end of the driveway, she let her kids walk on their own not knowing that this would put their lives in danger. One of her sons stepped into the road when a car quickly passed by him – almost hitting him out of nowhere!

If the boy took another step forward, we know that it would end into a tragic accident all because of a reckless driver who is being ignorant of his surroundings. This is the reason why school buses have a STOP sign. As soon as a driver sees it, he or she knows better than to speed up.

When the school buses have the stop sign up and they are flashing their lights, the other drivers need to slow down.

But the driver did the exact opposite.

Lindsay shared this on Facebook even though she was initially doubtful whether to share the video publicly or not. She wrote, “…school is back in session and school bus safety should be one of our number one priorities. Please share this and make others aware of the dangers of careless or distracted drivers.”

Her post instantly went viral and thousands of people shared her story, hoping that they can help prevent something like this from happening and turn into a sad tragedy. She added:

“My son was almost seriously hurt when this driver did not stop for the buses flashing lights. Thank you.”

Accidents are preventable if drivers are being extra cautious while on the road. This kind of situation can happen to anyone. For reckless drivers, we do not have full control over that. Pretty sure they have been reminded millions of times to be careful when driving. What parents can do is to teach the kids to be safe as much as possible.

Never forget to remind them every day the basics – to look both ways before you cross the road. In our end, this is the only way that we can make sure that they are safe and out of danger.

This driver definitely should not have a license to drive. We all know that driving past a stopped bus is more than just an illegal offense. It is very dangerous for our youngsters in the community. If this situation turned out badly, the driver could have ruined his own life by being put behind bars and would regret what he did for the rest of his life.

California Teacher Is In Big Trouble After A Student Filmed What Goes On In Her Classroom

California Teacher Is In Big Trouble After A Student Filmed What Goes On In Her Classroom

One teacher made an example of a male student. Her name was Margaret Gieszinger, and she was upset about how a student was acting in class. As punishment, she called the boy up to the front of the class where a seat was waiting for him. Then she took up a pair of scissors and started to cut his hair as she sang the Star-Spangled Banner at the top of her lungs.

The video was captured by another student who knew what the teacher was doing was wrong. And now that the clip has made it onto the internet, Margaret could be out of a job especially since she was arrested. Certainly, the University Preparatory High School in Visalia, California would not want to hire her back.

The College of the Sequoias police responded when they got the video footage included below. The report they received alleged child endangerment that involved Margaret using a “pair of scissors” on her student. Police chief Kevin Mizner spoke to the Visalia Times-Delta about the strange happenings in the school.

When Margaret Gieszinger, 52, was arrested, she was charged with suspicion of corporal injury to a child. Her bond was set at the staggering $100,000.

The video that you’re about to see shows the teacher, Margaret Gieszinger, forcing a student into a chair so she can cut his hair in front of the class. The video, which is definitely strange, acts as irrefutable proof that the teacher did what the students claim.

When the clip starts, Gieszinger shouts out, “You’re not done.” She points to the chair while standing aggressively with the pair of scissors in her hands. She points to the chair again and orders, “Take a seat.”

Then the teacher opens her mouth and starts loudly singing lyrics from the Star Spangled Banner. With a flourish, she snips his hair and then throws the bit over her shoulder toward the wall.

The video then cuts to a few minutes later when Gieszinger is running into the classroom wielding the scissors. She appears to be targeting a female student who does not want her long hair cut.

As the teacher runs around with the scissors chasing her students, children scream out of fear. The teacher continues to cry the lyrics from the national anthem as he tries to cut her students’ hair forcibly.

Students claimed that Gieszinger came to the classroom with the pair of scissors ready to get to work because she said it was haircut day.

“We think she’s going to try to be funny and be like, ‘Oh, did you really think I was going to cut his hair?’” one student told KFSN. “But she did cut a hair off, and she started singing The Star Spangled Banner, and she was singing it really loudly as she ceremoniously tossed a chunk of hair behind her.”

This student was terrified when he watched his teacher lose control. The anonymous student ran to the office to get help.

“I hope I never have to see her at the school again because I know for a fact I can never see her as a respectable authority figure in my life.”
