Just When You Thought You Heard It All News (10-29-2016)


This is a Halloween horror story as old as time, about a dumb girl who turned into a pumpkin.........
She thought it would be funny to have a glimpse inside the fruit, only for her skull to be overtaken. What is a girl to do in such a predicament? Have her dad call the fire department? Have her mom post the video on the internet, “for sure”? Curse her ponytail? 
Or should she pray to the evil spirits who put her there in the first place? It seemed her fate was all trick and no treat. 
But luckily, there’s a second part of the saga in which the girl with a pumpkin for a head gains her freedom.

People will sue for anything and everything. I'm surprised that some psycho hasn't tried to sue God for a rainy day....yet!

A woman who says she has been unable to “speak above a whisper’’ since eating a Jimmy John’s sandwich containing Dijon mustard is suing the fast-food giant, claiming a Comstock Park franchise got her order wrong.

After taking one bite of her "Billy Club" sandwich, Lindsey Bresnahan had an allergic reaction because it contained Dijon mustard “contrary to her specific instructions,’’ according to the federal lawsuit.

Bresnahan at the time worked in a financial loan office on Alpine Avenue NW and her job involved “a great deal of telephone contact with prospective customers,’’ the lawsuit claims.

She has been unable to “speak above a whisper’’ since the June 2 incident and has been unable to return to her job. Bresnahan is currently on disability, according to the lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Grand Rapids.

It accuses Jimmy John’s of failing to accurately take her order and relay the information to employees. The Illinois-based company also failed to train employees on the dangers of customers ingesting foods that can cause severe allergic reactions, the lawsuit claims.

As a result, Bresnahan has suffered significant emotional distress, humiliation, embarrassment and an “inability to conduct normal activities of daily living,’’ the lawsuit claims.

Her June 2 phone-in order was placed at the Jimmy John’s on Alpine Avenue north of Four Mile Road NW in Comstock Park.

She ordered a ‘Billy Club Unwich,’ which comes with roast beef, smoked ham, Provolone cheese, Dijon mustard and mayonnaise and uses Iceberg lettuce as a replacement for bread, according to the lawsuit.

Bresnahan specifically requested that the sandwich, which was delivered, not include Dijon mustard and mayonnaise, the lawsuit claims.

After biting into the sandwich, she began to experience an allergic reaction. Symptoms included coughing, watering eyes “and her throat beginning to close,’’ the lawsuit claims.

Bresnahan took three Benadryl pills and continued to work, “believing she could recover from the allergic reaction,’’ the lawsuit states.

After recovering enough to make a phone call, Bresnahan called Jimmy John’s to report what happened and the person who answered the phone “apologized for the mix-up’’ and sent a delivery person to retrieve the sandwich, the lawsuit claims.

She had a doctor’s appointment that afternoon for an unrelated issue and was told by her doctor to continue taking Benadryl, the lawsuit claims.

Bresnahan left for a memorial service in New York the next day and “continued to cough violently and also vomited frequently,’’ according to the lawsuit. “By the time she returned to Michigan on Sunday, she was barely able to speak.’

She sure showed him.
A North Carolina woman who said she wanted to prove to her husband that playing the lottery is a waste of money bought a $10 scratch-off and won $1,000,000.
“I had to eat my words,” Glenda Blackwell said in a release from the state lottery commission. “But those are pretty good words to eat.”
The 57-year-old from Leicester said she purchased the ticket Saturday after her husband asked her to pick up two Powerball tickets. She instead grabbed the Carolina Millions scratch-off for herself.
“I wanted to show him that luck doesn’t always hit,” she said.
It didn’t quite work out that way.
“When I scratched the two, there was ‘$1,000,000 winner’ under the two,” she told a local media source.
Blackwell said she was in total disbelief until she was handed a blown-up check bearing the seven-figure sum on Monday.
“We’ve struggled a lot, so now we can buy our own home and our own land. It’ll be paid for and I don’t have to worry about that no more,” she said. “So, that’s what I plan to do with some of the money and the other part I plan to help my daughter and to put money up for my two granddaughters for college.”
Blackwell chose the lump sum of $415,503 instead of receiving 20 annual payments.
