"Something came over me, I think the Lord came to me, and he just said get in the truck and leave," said Ken Shupe of Shupee Max Towing in Traveler's Rest, S.C. "And when I got in my truck, you know, I was so proud, because I felt like I finally drew a line in the sand and stood up for what I believed."
Motorist Cassy McWade says she was in a car accident, and the family called their regular mechanic to drive about 45 minutes north in order to tow her home to Traveler's Rest from the side of the Interstate. He wasn't able to make the trip, so McWade says he called Shupe.
He arrived after about an hour and began the process of towing the vehicle.
"He goes around back and comes back and says 'I can't tow you.' My first instinct was there must be something wrong with the car," McWade said. "And he says, 'No, you're a Bernie supporter.' And I was like wait, really? And he says, 'Yes ma'am,' and just walks away."
McWade has a Bernie Sanders bumper sticker on her rear fender and a yard sign in her rear window for Sen. Bernie Sanders.
Shupe, who supports presumptive Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, OF COURSE, said his decision on the side of the interstate this week was more about business than politics.
He believes Bernie Sanders supporters are socialists, and says he's had problems with two customers over the last six months who supported Bernie Sanders. He said they caused him problems over paying their bills.
"I've had some horrible experiences in the last six months with towing cars for this mindset individuals, in that I don't get paid. They want to argue about a $50 tow bill, and it turns into just a drama and a fuss. And I said, you know, I'm not going to associate with them, and I'm not going to do any business with them," Shupe said.
"I'm really not interested in doing business with that clientele," he said of Sanders' supporters.
"I personally don't believe that you don't have to agree on anything just to be kind to one another," McWade said. "I was like, what did I do to you? You know, I do believe I try to do right by people. So I was offended, and I don't know what exactly he thinks I would have done to him directly by being a believer in Bernie."
What Shupe didn't know at the time was that McWade, 25, has psoriatic arthritis, fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and early-stage Crohns, which she said made sitting on the side of the road without a restroom nearby was "terrifying." She is legally disabled and says the handicapped placard was hanging on her mirror when Shupe arrived.
She also says the family mechanic informed Shupe that she was disabled.
After waiting more than an hour and a half, McWade was towed by another company.
In Memphis, Tennessee, Dwight Moore, A Christian Brothers High School sophomore got a perfect score on his ACT. Young Mr. Moore was so shocked, that at first that he thought it was a mistake.
“I sat there in shock for a second. There is no way this is right. It didn’t have the writing score, so I thought this was just a placeholder for later. So I am not getting my hopes up when the writing score came out too, I actually got a 36,” Moore explained to Local Memphis News.
According to the 2015 ACT results statistics, less than one percent of 1.9 million candidates got 36 out of 36.
Moore said that getting a perfect score depends on hard work.
CBHS principal Chris Fay congratulated Moore for making a name for himself and the school. “Please join me in congratulating sophomore Dwight Moore for his perfect composite score of 36 on the ACT,” he said. “Dwight is an incredibly polite and humble young man, who is respected by both his peers and teachers. He is a model student at CBHS.”
Like most high school teenagers, Dwight has not decided on a college or career. He still has two more years of high school ahead, so there’s time to figure that out. The possibilities seem endless.
Mom told you not to run with scissors. But that doesn't mean that you should do any other stupid, dangerous thing either! You know, something like eating corn off a power drill?
A YouTube video showing a woman in China attempting to eat corn with the help of a spinning drill is proving to be a cautionary tale for the rest of us.
For the first few seconds, all seems to be going well for the unnamed woman. She’s holding her mouth open, the drill is spinning and the corn is coming off the cob.
Then, things go horribly wrong!! See for yourself.
The corn-drill catastrophe is actually part of a series of videos.
In the second installment, the woman is treated by a doctor who told her that the hair would grow back.....eventially. But she might always be a complete moron.
