A woman goes into Cabela’s to buy a rod and reel for her grandson’s birthday. She doesn’t know which one to get, so she just grabs one and goes over to the counter.
The clerk was standing behind the counter wearing dark glasses. She says to him, “Excuse me, sir. Can you tell me anything about this Rod and reel?” He says, “Ma’am, I’m completely blind; but if you’ll drop it on the counter, I can tell you everything from the sound it makes.”
She doesn’t believe him but drops it on the counter anyway…… He says, “That’s a six-foot Shakespeare graphite rod with a Zebco 404 reel and 10-LB. test line. It’s a good all-around combination, and it’s on sale this week for only $20.00.”
She says, “It’s amazing that you can tell all that just by the sound of it dropping on the counter. I’ll take it!”
As she opens her purse, her credit card drops on the floor. “Oh, that sounds like a Master Card,” he says.She bends down to pick it up and accidentally farts. At first she is really embarrassed, but then realizes……there is no way the blind clerk could tell it was her who tooted. Being blind, he wouldn’t know that she was the only person around?
The man rings up the sale and says, “That’ll be $34.50 please.”
The woman is totally confused by this and asks, “Didn’t you tell me the rod and reel were on sale for $20.00? How did you get $34.50?”
He replies, “Yes, ma’am. The rod and reel is $20.00, but the Duck Call is $11.00, and the Catfish Bait is $3.50.”
She paid it and left without saying a word.
Little Presley Marshal looked as healthy as she could be. The seven-month-old toddler cried as much as any other baby, and she never gave her parents any reason to suspect that anything was wrong with her. They were therefore quite alarmed when a photographer advised them to seek urgent medical diagnosis after a photo session.
Presley’s dad, Darren, had been quite a busy man even over the Christmas holidays. He worked the entire month and had barely had the time for festivities with his family. For this reason, the couple decided to go on a short family trip to Tenerife so that they could make up for the lost time.
Presley’s mother, Sophie, and her father gathered up their children and set out for what they hoped would be an enjoyable vacation.
A few days before their return, the family decided to have a small photo session at their hotel room. They hired Alessia, a local photographer who also happened to know a few things about retinoblastoma. The children were dressed and photographed, and Alessia left after assuring the family that the photographs would be ready for collection soon.
Sophie and Darren went to collect the photos the day before their return home, and they were met by a grim Alessia who looked somewhat worried. She called them aside and showed the printouts. One particular photo caught their attention. It was Presley’s, and something looked off.
In the photo, Presley’s right eye was white, and the left was red. It was not uncommon for people’s eyes to look red in photographs, and Sophie quickly dismissed the white one as a mere effect of light. She asked Alessia if she could do something about it, and her answer made their hairs stand.
The photographer told them that it was normal for eyes to come out white in photographs. She was not sure what was wrong, but as she was a little informed on retinoblastoma, she advised Sophie and Darren to take their baby to the hospital as soon as they could for examination. They then took the photos and left, trying to assure themselves that nothing was wrong with their daughter.
Alessia’s words had, however, raised some significant amount of concern, and they were not about to take any chances on their baby.
As soon as they set foot in their hometown, Jarrow, the couple rushed Presley to hospital. The explained what their photographers had said, and the little girl was taken it for some tests. After a thorough diagnosis, the doctor confirmed their fears; something was indeed wrong, and treatment had to start immediately.
The doctors let them know that Presley had a little white ball that had grown on the optical nerve of her right eye. The condition was quite serious, but it would be easy to treat since they had found it out early enough. The baby was then put on chemotherapy sessions and other cancer medication, and they were assured that she would be fine in no time at all.
Sophie and her husband are more than grateful to Alessia. She had saved their daughter’s eyesight and perhaps, her life. If it were not for her, they would have never known about the cancerous tumor and Presley may have lost her vision or even worse, her life.
While sitting in the bleachers at a high school football game, young Isaiah quickly grew bored. Nothing seemed to be happening and the game kept on dragging. Because he was with his aunt, the little boy felt that he could explore a bit more than he would if he was with his mother. But he was growing tired and bored, and because his aunt was busy watching the football game, Isiah knew that she would not be able to comfort him right now.
Isaiah is a young boy and isn’t afraid of what other people think. Because he was growing tired, he just crawled up into a stranger’s lap and fell asleep. It was an endearing moment, but when his aunt realized what had happened, she became furious. She didn’t want the boy embarrassing her – good thing the stranger found it utterly adorable and didn’t mind at all.
Since the heartwarming moment happened, Isaiah’s aunt Star shared the story on Facebook along with the now-viral photograph of Isaiah wrapped in the stranger’s arms.
“I don’t know who this lady is, but if you know her, tell her she’s awesome. Isaiah walked up to this lady at our last home game two weeks ago. He sat on her lap, and they were talking like they knew each other. It lasted no more than 20 mins. “
“However, she left right after halftime to meet up with her little girl. Fast forward to tonight… not long after we sat down at the game, Isaiah spotted her. She waved at him, and he made his way up to her. I thought their interaction would be the same as last time, but I was wrong.
“Isaiah walked right up to her smiling, crawled in her lap and laid his head down on her shoulder. She welcomed him with open arms. This lady patted and rocked Isaiah to sleep like he had given birth to him. It was the sweetest! We asked her if she wanted us to get him, but she kept telling us she (and he) was fine!
“Isaiah and this lady have NEVER met before other than those 20 mins at a game 2 weeks ago. I told her tonight that I am so sorry and I don’t know why he keeps bothering her. She replied he’s no bother and to not say that again. She said he was her new friend. She then went on to say she only has one child who is 15, and moments like this are priceless!
“With all of the racial tension that’s going on, I’m glad to see the pictures like these because it goes to show color don’t matter to a lot of people. It really doesn’t!
“Arguing over stuff as such makes us miss the simple pleasures in life. I hate I didn’t get her name but I will next game because I’m sure Isaiah will make his way back to her. I love her and don’t know her!”
After Star’s post went viral, she learned the identity of the kind stranger.
“Her name is Mrs. Angela. She’s such a sweet lady, Y’all! It’s awesome how God connects people together for whatever reason!”
Being a growing preteen in today’s world is incredibly challenging as it is, between all the pressures kids have to face socially.
The world is just not the same anymore, and it can be hard for kids to be kids.
At the very least, we should all attempt to be understanding and kind to these children, and support them as they figure out just how growing up works.
The teachers from this primary school in Bristol certainly did not get the memo.
Cotham School is a school that is supposed to be raising young children and educate them.
Instead, it seems the only education this 11-year-old has gotten was that she shouldn’t go to school while having her period.
Periods are a very natural and normal part of growing up – at first glance, it makes no sense that a school would scare a child going through puberty.
Just exactly why is this 11-year-old traumatised to the point of being terrified when her period rolls around?
The answer, apparently, was in the humiliation she had to endure at least twice – the poor child was forced to bleed through her clothes and stain them, simply because her teachers refused to let her leave and go to the bathroom.
The first time round this happened must have been hellish for this unnamed girl.
She was new to the school, and on that September day was wearing light-blue jeans.
The stains would have shown up easily, causing the poor girl great embarrassment.
Luckily, she had a jumper she could use to conceal the stain at the time, but spending the rest of her day in soiled clothes still must have been extremely uncomfortable for her.
No wonder she didn’t want to go to school the next time her period rolled around.
Any mother would have been utterly furious at this, and this girl’s mother was no exception. She rang up the school and demanded an explanation.
The school, in response, simply said they wouldn’t have it happen again – without explaining exactly what steps they would take to prevent further incidents.
This raised alarm bells, but the mother decided to trust the word of the school.
This was probably a mistake.
You can imagine just how hard it was for such a young child to slowly build enough confidence to go to school again the next time, so it must have been a devastating blow to her when something like this happened again on her next cycle in October.
Already she was terrified of going, but unfortunately was forced to attend school by the school administration.
Worried, her mother talked to the administration, who reassured her that all would be fine. Obviously, it wasn’t.
This time, the poor girl was reduced to begging and pleading the male teacher to let her use the bathroom, but was denied anyway.
As a result, she was forced to bleed through her clothes again, and after withstanding the humiliation from begging publicly too.
Just what exactly were the teachers thinking?
Puberty is hard enough as it is – no wonder this girl is so traumatised now.
Hopefully these teachers will be properly educated in the future so no such thing can happen again.
While dogs make great pets, they are also known as heroes which is why they prevail in war zones, helping soldiers detect dangerous areas. It is also for this reason that they make great partners to police officers and have the sense to sniff out drugs, assisting with tracking down criminals. But sometimes we are surprised by a dog that is just considered the family pet.
When Officer Jeff Gonzalez was patrolling the area in Washington County, Wisconsin on a frigid February day, he noticed a lone black lab roaming the streets. As he approached the dog, he realized the pup was wearing a collar so he assumed he belonged to someone.
The dog, who was in obvious distress didn’t hesitate to flee into a nearby Germantown neighborhood.
“He stood there and barked a little bit, then I rolled down my window and called to him,” Gonzalez said. “Then he wagged his tail and got more friendly until I got out of my car. And then he ran a little bit.”
Because Germantown is fairly small, the police officer didn’t have trouble following the dog, concerned for his safety. He followed the pup along the safe streets in Germantown and soon learned that the dog, known as “John Boy,” was trying to send him a message.
John Boy led Gonzalez to his owner, who appeared to be collapsed in a chair in her front yard. Gonzalez obviously knew something was wrong so he got out of his car and assessed the woman, who he deemed unresponsive.
“To be honest with you, I thought she was dead,” Officer Gonzalez later admitted. “And when I went up, she was very cold to the touch. Her lips were blue.”
It was then that the experienced cop realized there was the faintest hint of life left in the woman, who he later learned was named Krystal.
“I was able to determine she was breathing and had a pulse,” he revealed. “I called for assistance and my partner was close. So, together, we got her in the house.”
Gonzalez contacted Krystal’s daughter, Tianne Wendt, who arrived on the scene.
“Basically what he told me was, he said that they thought that she was dead,” said Wendt.
Soon after Wendt arrived, Krystal was taken to the Community Memorial Hospital in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin. It was there that doctors monitored Krystal’s heart condition and ran tests on her. Krystal was soon on the road to recovery following the the care she received at the hospital.
Gonzalez later discvored that Krystal had taken John Boy out just moments before she collapsed and had become unconscious. Evidently, she was in the same spot on her lawn for two hours while John Boy desperately tried to get someone to come to the rescue. As luck would have it, Gonzalez just happened to be in the area when John Boy was on a mission to get help.
This just proves that dogs are much smarter than we give them credit for and it’s always best to listen when your dog speaks.
One shocking accident happened in Georgia and had its victim as an eight-year-old black boy. The boy laid on the ground, shocked and scared. However, it was fortunate enough that there was an empathetic police officer around who helped the boy feel less fearful.
According to WBS-TV, one of the officers, Sgt Kay Denton, recounted the incident saying that she was scared for the fate of the child. However, she felt relieved when she saw her colleague, Cpl Christopher Holly, on the ground with the boy. The moment caught Denton’s attention, and she decided to take a picture of the scene of the accident with her colleague officer lying on the ground with the boy.
” “This officer laid on the ground with this child, cradling his head in his hand and talking to him to keep him calm,” she continued.
Holly’s act of compassion was a great consolation to the kid. He got less scared and was able to talk to the officer, at times even laughing. Sometimes the boy patted the officer on the shoulder and played with his hair. It was amusing how quick he got comfortable with Cpl Holly.
It came as a surprise to the officer to learn that it was the boy’s birthday and probably was in the process of enjoying his day that the horrible fate caught up with him. So to keep the boy’s mind off the accident, Holly sang him birthday songs. They also talked about various other things like stuff about school and so on.
As unfortunate as the incident was, it was in time to challenge the complaints about police brutality and racism, that had recently grown so fast and wide. Denton explained that their work is to take care of everyone despite the color and that their actions depend on the situation at hand: are you the victim or the cause of the problem.
They, therefore, act accordingly depending on the situation in which you are in and not your skin the color of your skin.
He, therefore, disputed the accusations and referred to them as propaganda. He also mentioned that it was because of these allegations that he felt he should share the incident with the world and hopefully restore the confidence of the public in the police.
WBS-TV tried giving some details on the officer who saved the day and mentioned that he had worked the commerce police department from 2013. However, he has been serving as police for ten years.
The incident had many people amusing at Holly’s actions and his compassion. He indeed showed that police officers could be swift in action as well as compassionate.
In a brief statement that he made, he mentioned that what he did was not a big deal to him as a police officer. He went ahead, saying that most of their work, as much as 90%, involved helping people and that that is what he and his fellows all over the world do.
The young boy suffered some internal injuries. However, he was fortunate to find someone to help him through the terrifying moment before help came.
If you ever experienced spending time lying on the lush green grass and figuring out the abstract figures that you see formed by clouds, then you are surely going to be amazed by what the woman caught on video. People claimed to have encountered seeing a cross illuminated by the sun, or maybe a shape of an angel that is watching over them.
A Facebook user named Solo Dolo captured something indescribable in the clouds when he glanced up the sky one day. It was stormy but there are still bright patches in the sky. Amidst the bad weather, the sun was trying to peek down between the dark and gloomy clouds. However, it is what the sun illuminated that caught Solo Dolo’s attention, as well as the other people who were able to watch the video.
Over the past decades, there were random stories about people who swear that they see Jesus or the Virgin Mary in different objects, including the clouds. When Solo Dolo did a Facebook Live Stream, the footage was supposed to be of the strong storm that’s raging outside. Solo Dolo didn’t even notice what the video was able to capture with the light shining through.
Hey, we’ve got a storm over here. We got no power, everything blowing over here, boxes, trees … Look at that hole right in the sky… that’s who’s got the power. He got us covered at least, we’re alright.”
The hole that Solo Dolo was referencing to looked like a shadowy, human-like figure that is walking toward the bright gap in the clouds. It looked like a tall male figure, walking upright which Solo Dolo’s friend Lisa Baker pointed out in her comments on the video. Solo Dolo posted, “Can’t tell me my God ain’t real.
Thank you, God, for using Lisa StandAlone Baker to reveal this to me. To see this is to believe this. ”
Many people also noticed this mysterious figure on Solo Dolo’s video and they also believe that it is truly God himself showing his mighty appearance in the clouds, presenting Himself for everyone to see. One comment said: “GOD IS COMING… Someone is walking in the clouds.”
There are three possible explanations of why we are seeing faces in clouds. According to psychology, this is in the person’s mental make-up. Science says that this is just how our physiologically programmed to think. It could be spirits, but it can also be your mind showing you something that you might have seen before. A familiar pattern perhaps? However, in spirituality, this happens for spiritual reasons.
According to EarthSky, when you see a figure in the patch of clouds, it is called Pareidolia. According to experts, the ability to experience pareidolia is more developed in some people. Sometimes, the ability to see objects where no such objects exist can have results that are both beautiful and intriguing.
It is believed that pareidolia can be used to describe how the ancients connected the dots and came up with the patterns that we know now as constellations.
Each of us may have different explanations and answers to what Solo Dolo saw, but knowing that something this bizarre exists whether in reality or just in our minds and may remain as a fantasy is simply amazing. Our mind is powerful but so is God and the Heavens above us.
In a viral video, one man noticed something strange at the CITGO gas pump. When he removed the nozzle and prepared to pump his gas, he thought he saw something strange.
He couldn’t believe it. The Illinois gas station was charging him before he even started pumping his gas. When other people started watching the video, it became clear that CITGO gas might be siphoning off millions of dollars from unexpected motorists every year with their alleged gas pump scam. But watch the video footage below to make a decision for yourself.
The bottom line is the man shows the gas pump just sitting on his car, but he is slowing being charged anyway! He very carefully shows that this is the pump, the hose is connected and everything.
He was at a CITGO gas station. Makes you stop and think. Tell me what you think!
If your skin crawls when you see a spider or some unidentified insect crawling around your home, you’re going to be disgusted when you learn the truth about the insect infestation affecting the United States. Every one of the fifty states has a problem with bedbugs right now that is getting out of control. And for anyone scared of bugs, there is nothing worse than bed bugs because they get you while you’re sleeping.
If you’re like me, even the term “bed bugs” gets your skin crawling. I feel itchy all over whenever I think about how these bloodsuckers attack us while we’re sleeping at our most vulnerable state. And I have more bad news to share. Bed bugs are not going away. To the contrary, they are actually becoming more and more common across the United States.
In a recent interview with KMOV4, Darryl Franke, the owner of SOS Pest Control based out of Kansas City came forward to address the growing bedbug problem.
Franke, who has been operating his pest control company for years, has a lot of data to share with you – and none of it is going to help you feel better about bedbugs.
“In 2002 I think we did three (bed bug) jobs. In 2004, we did 20. We did 900 last year.”
With a rate of increase like that, there could easily be twice or triple the bedbug problem in 2019.
The reason bedbugs have become so common has to do with the fact that they are no longer confined to just beds. These parasites are migrating to public places including movie theaters, libraries, airports, and daycare centers. Wherever people go, bedbugs follow. And since so many more people are living their lives on the go than they did just a decade before, bedbugs have become a lot more mobile as well. This means these parasites are following their “hosts” around and getting deposited in other areas around town. You can pretty much assume that anything with fabric in public can be a possible “hotspot” for bedbugs.
Next time you’re at the movie theater or in the airport, be careful about where you sit – it could be swarming with these bloodsuckers.
Why are bedbugs so hard to kill? Franke claims they’re tougher than most pests.
“They’re very resistant to pesticides naturally,” Franke told the news outlet. That means it takes a lot of poison to kill these pests.
Although all states across America have a bedbug problem, a few states are seeing much faster growth than others.
One study and the Bed-Bug Organization report that “infestations (have) reached epidemic levels in some states such as New York, Ohio, Florida, and California.” In other words, highly populated states have the worst bed bug problems.
Protect yourself from bedbugs with these five tips. If you see any of these, there is probably an infestation of bedbugs.
1.Rust-colored or red stains on fabric.
2. Live bugs.
3.Eggs and shells.
4.Dark spots on soft surfaces.
5.Bug bites on your body.
Have you ever faced a bedbug problem?
