A Seattle area woman took a stab at showing good manners on the road, only to have a pedestrian threaten to shoot her – because she stopped and allowed him to cross the street in front of his car.
The woman, who was not identified, had just left work and was driving home when a man suddenly ran out of an alley and into the street, forcing her to slam on her brakes. When she motioned for him to go ahead and complete his crossing, he had other ideas – going up to her vehicle waving a gun and yelling, "You better shut your mouth or I'm going to shoot your face off."
An officer responding to her 911 call found the man and arrested him on charges of harassment. (KOMO)
Administrators at one Florida high school laid down the law earlier this month and warned a group of cheerleaders that they were violating the dress code – by wearing the cheer leading uniforms the school had issued.
The geniuses in charge of Countryside High decided that the uniforms were perfect for rooting on the school's teams on the field, but "too vulgar" to be worn among the players during school hours, since they are sleeveless and have short skirts – both of which are banned by new school rules.
One parent asked, "If it's an approved school uniform – approved, by the administration, years ago - why is it out of dress code? And why can they wear it in front of thousands of people at a football field if they can't wear it on game day at school?" (Tampa Bay Times)
A Florida man showed that he's very hard to rattle – by walking into a pet store and sneaking out after shoving a four-foot snake down his pants.
Surveillance cameras caught the man casually strolling into the shop and walking over to the reptile section, where he plucked a ball python out of its cage and tucked it into his trousers. The snake was returned to the shop a short time later with a puncture wound that required veterinary care.
The store owner says he recognized the man's face and is hoping someone will come forward and identify the slippery character. (WESH)
