TIMES ARE CUFF ALL OVER
A Washington state man was thrown in handcuffs for stealing handcuffs - a pair that he took from the policeman who'd arrested him just hours before.
The 43-year-old, whose name was not released, was picked up on an outstanding theft warrant and taken in for processing at a local precinct. Not long after he left, the corrections officer who'd handled the bust noticed his nandcuffs were missing and grew suspicious suspicions that were confirmed when he got a call from a pawn shop worker informing him that a man had come in attempting to get some cash for the cuffs.
He was re-arrested the same day on a charge of trafficking in stolen property. (UPI)
WHAT'S IN A N-N-N-AME?
Telemarketers trying to get in touch with one British man really need to buy a vowel now that he's added nine "P"s in front of his name to throw them off their game.
Tim P-p-p-p-p-p-p-p-p-price, formerly known simply as Tim Price, says it cost him around $200 to file all the legal paperwork to become the hero to millions whose dinner have been interrupted by pesky salespeople, and that it's well worth the cost.
He says, "My theory is that when these salesmen see my name on their list of names to call, they'll think: "I can't even pronounce his name, so I won't call him." (Orange News U.K.)
SENDING A REFUND TO THE IRS
We've heard of sending back orders in a restaurant, but a Cleveland waitress decided to send back her tax refund because it was way too big.
Virginia Hopkins, who's worked at a downtown eatery for nearly two decades, says she was really looking forward to a refund check for about $750, but was stunned to open the envelope to find a lot more inside nearly a half-million bucks in total.
Hopkins says she didn't even think about pocketing the dough, and didn't even want to risk mailing it back, so she took some time from work and walked it to a local IRS office.
She says, "Would you believe I had to give them a photo ID to prove it was me before I could give it back? Otherwise they wouldn't even talk to me." (Huffington Post)
