California waitress gets $1,000 tip after restaurant was closed for a week

A California waitress received a generous gift when a customer tipped her $1,000 after the restaurant she worked at had to close for a week.

Sarah Klein missed out on a week’s worth of pay when her job at The Mainstream Bar and Grille in Poway was put on hold wehn a boil water order shut the business down for six days.

When the restaurant reopened, Klein mentioned to one of her regulars how the water outage affected her family. With Christmas around the corner, losing a paycheck made a world of difference.

“You do really want to budget,” Klein told KABC. “You really want to figure out what you want to do for the holiday or how you are going to spend your money. So that was scary.”

Surprisingly, the customer returned to give Klein what he called a “donation.”

Missouri mom defends son beating up school bully in viral post: ‘Problem solved’

A Missouri mother’s unapologetic Facebook post on Monday defending her son’s decision to fight back against a bully has gone viral.

Allison Davis posted a selfie picture of her son, Drew, who was suspended from school for “beating up the kid that has been tormenting and bullying him since middle school.”

But rather than being “upset” over her son’s behavior, Davis said she was far from it.

“Not even a little bit,” she said.

“I know as a parent I’m suppose[d] to be upset with him for resorting to violence or getting suspended, but I’m not,” she wrote.

Davis said that her son had suffered bullying from the unidentified student for years and, despite repeated attempts to get the school to do something about it, nothing happened.

“When this kid has constantly threatened to beat Drew up along with several of his friends, the school did nothing,” Davis said. “When this kid followed Drew down the hall threatening him and making fun of him AND it was all captured on video, the school did nothing.”

The mother said the student’s bullying only got worse over time, including sending her son threats on social media, voicemails and text messages. Still, she said, the school did nothing.

“In middle school, Drew was afraid to walk down the halls because a swarm of this kid and his minions would make fun of and threaten Drew,” she said. “He quit talking to the adults about it because they never disciplined the bully and it just made the situation worse.”

Davis said she sent the school a “lengthy email” earlier this year and “begged” the school to intervene. Their solution, she said, was to have the two sign a “no contact” contract.

So when Drew ultimately took matters into his own hands, Davis said, he was left with no alternative.

“Drew decided that he would quit relying on the school and the adults who are suppose[d] to protect him and HE would do something,” she wrote. “Three punches and his bully screamed like a baby, his minion friends shut up, and this morning the bully wouldn’t even look at him.”

“Problem solved,” she added.

Davis’ viral post has amassed more than 235,000 likes and more than 138,000 re-shares on Facebook. Many commenters applauded the post and Drew’s decision to stand up for himself.

“Well done. A human being will only take so much,” one Facebook user commented.

“Sometimes you just got to put your foot on someone’s back side,” another said. “That’s the only way to fix these kind of people. Refuse to be a victim.”

A Delaware homeowner captured on video an Amazon delivery driver’s reaction after he discovered that she had left an unexpected surprise at the front door.

The doorbell camera footage shows Karim Earl Reed III walking up to the Middletown home as he discovered a basket of treats for delivery workers, which included water, soda and other snacks.

“Made my day! I leave goodies out every year,” the homeowner, Kathy Ouma, posted on Monday.

Reed’s reaction to the thoughtful gesture, however, was a surprise in and of itself.

“Oh, this is nice! We got some goodies … wow!” said Reed, who helped himself to the goodies.

He then begins to dance as he walked back to the delivery truck. Reed’s joyful reaction quickly went viral. The video has been viewed on Facebook more than 6.6 million times as of Thursday night.

“This is great, so thoughtful of you and he clearly appreciated your generosity from those moves!” one Facebook user commented.

“This was a perfect way to remember to be thankful for the little things and help others even when you’re going through it,” another person wrote.

Many commenters said they wanted to try Ouma’s generous idea. One person, however, said there’s just one thing from stopping her.

“I would try it, but the squirrels would probably eat the snacks,” she said.

Pet duck needs penis removed after trying to mate ‘between 5 and 10 times’ per day: ‘It was pretty horrific’

And you thought you were having a bad day.

In a truly bizarre turn of events, a supposedly nymphomaniac duck had to have its penis removed after having too much sex. The animal reportedly traumatized the appendage, causing it to become infected.

The duck, named Dave, was living in the U.K. with its owner, Josh Watson, The New York Post reported. According to Watson, Dave would “mate with his female companions between five and 10 times a day.”

However, due to the number of times Dave was attempting to mate, the duck reportedly caused irreparable damage to its reproductive organ.

After attempting to use antibiotics to fix the problem, Dave took a trip to Bristol’s Highcroft Veterinary Hospital. There, it was determined that Dave’s sexual behavior had caused its appendage to slip out of place. Even worse, it had become septic.

If it had gone untreated, the condition could have become “life-threatening,” the doctor said.

The decision was made to remove Dave’s penis.

According to its owner, Dave has been recovering fine after his operation, which left him with a centimeter-long stub. Watson speculated, however, that Dave was upset at the loss of the organ.

Cat meowing with ‘thick Southern accent’ goes viral on Instagram

Well, hello to you, too.

Gambino, a ginger cat, is quickly gaining fame on social media for his unusual meow — which many claim sounds like he’s saying “Well, hi,” in a “thick Southern accent.”

In a video shared on Instagram, Gambino is seen running past another black-and-white cat, Tom, and hiding behind the refrigerator. As Gambino’s owner follows him, the orange-and-white tabby surprises with a unique meow before grooming himself.

The video has been viewed over 400,000 times on Instagram alone, but has reportedly gathered nearly 1.3 million views across various social media platforms.

“Omg so cute. Well hi to you,” another wrote.

“Oh what manners you have,” another commented with a heart emoji.

Sex blogger gives advice to men whose wives won’t have sex with them

Westlake Legal Group Couple-Fighting-Bed-iStock Sex blogger gives advice to men whose wives won't have sex with them Gerren Keith Gaynor fox-news/lifestyle/relationships fox-news/health/reproductive-health/sexual-health fox news fnc/lifestyle fnc e44d516c-3e6e-5f56-9fe3-87d6decb445c article

A sex blogger is providing advice to men whose wives have stopped having sex with them.

Nadia Bokody, who is from Australia, posted a YouTube video on Monday to help husbands navigate their “sex-starved” relationships by giving them the tools they need to get their wives’ sex drive back on track.

Bokody said that, contrary to popular belief, a woman’s lack of enthusiasm in the bedroom is not tied to a declining libido. In fact, she said, it’s likely always because of a lack of interest in their partner.

“Male desire and female desire work in totally different ways,” Bokody said. “Guys expect their female partners to get turned on in the same way and in the same frequency that they do.

REDDIT THREAD ASKS USERS WHO ARE NOT IN LOVE WITH THEIR SPOUSES: ‘WHY ARE YOU STILL WITH THEM?’

HUSBAND, WIFE DECLARED BRITAIN’S ‘HAPPIEST COUPLE’ SAY THEY’VE ONLY HAD ONE ARGUMENT IN 50 YEARS

“Women get sexually bored a lot faster than men. If sex becomes repetitive, over time that woman will lose interest in having sex with that partner,” she said, adding: “Women crave very high amounts of sexual novelty.”

However, the sex-positive journalist said it’s not too late for husbands to save their love lives. Bokody provided a few tips that men could apply in an effort to improve intimacy in the bedroom.

“Women need a lot more time to build up arousal than men do,” she said. “What you can do as a partner is to start the foreplay, not one or two hours before sex but 24 hours.”

Bokody said building excitement and anticipation without being physical is a sure way to get the women in their lives in the mood. One way to do this, she said, is to send text messages throughout the day.

“Recount a sexual encounter and give her little bits of that memory throughout the day. Women love it when you get super descriptive,” she said. “Just as she is leaving to go to work grab her and give her a deep and passionate kiss. It’s very effective at getting women turned on.”

Many of Bokody’s YouTube followers said her advice was quite helpful.

“You have helped me and my wife so much with your advice, thank you,” one person commented.

Other commenters began opening up about their personal battles in the bedroom, like one man who said he “struggled with being predictable.”

One commenter even said: “Sorry I didn’t have this available to me 50 years ago.”

Not everyone, however, was impressed by Bokody’s advice. Another commenter expressed doubts that a man’s wife not having sex with him had anything to do with technique.

“It’s because she’s cheating on you, dummy,” the commenter said.

Australian fashion influencer shuts down blog over mommy guilt, admits she can’t ‘have it all’

A popular fashion influencer in Australia revealed she’s shutting down her blog in a teary video, in which she admitted that the pressures of her career were negatively impacting her relationship with her family.

I Heart Bargains blogger Chelsea Thomas, who has amassed 105,000 Instagram followers, said she decided to close shop after realizing she can’t actually have it all.

Thomas said her e-commerce fashion blog had become like her third child and took time away from her actual children.

CONTROVERSIAL MOMMY BLOGGER SAYS SHE DRINKS WINE TO COPE WITH KIDS ‘DRIVING HER CRAZY’

“I am an example of a woman who’s tried to have it all,” she said in a 15-minute video posted on Tuesday.  “You are never going to be able to do everything to be perfect. It just doesn’t work that way … I am grieving a lot of the time I have missed with my children.”

“It’s now time for me to really protect myself creatively, be with my family,” she added.

Thomas said she initially started the business eight years ago as a “side hustle” when her son, Jude, was 10 months old.

“I wanted to give women access to affordable fashion,” she said. “There was nothing quite like it in Australia at the time.

“It was an unbelievable ride. I didn’t anticipate the success it would bring me. I didn’t anticipate it would be my full-time job,” she said.

FAMILY SEEKS SOCIAL MEDIA PHOTOGRAPHER WHO CAN DOUBLE AS ‘MOTHER’S HELPER’

Thomas said she is drawn to do something else creatively but hasn’t yet pinpointed what that something is.

Overall, it was her son and her occasional absence in his life that drove her to return to being a full-time mother.

“Jude definitely needs me. He’s now 8, but he has seen a mother that has worked so hard for so long,” said Thomas, who began to cry. “For nearly a decade I’ve smashed it. I thought that smashing it was the right thing to do. I thought that meant success, power … more following. No, it doesn’t mean that.

“It means being disconnected to your children, it means potentially being apart from your husband,” she said.

While some followers admitted that they were sad to see the blog go, they also expressed support for Thomas and her decision. Other moms even said they could relate.

“Omg omg omg the end of an era. You should be so proud. What a journey,” one Instagram follower commented.

“I love how incredibly bold and strong you are to walk your own path! Well done,” another person wrote.

A body-positivity blogger from Finland is debunking the myth of the “perfect” Instagram photo.

Sara Puhto, 23, is poking fun at social media’s impossibly flawless standard in a series of Instagram photos, which she started doing as early as 2018.

In a side-by-side image, Puhto demonstrates what’s considered the “perfect” Instagram snap versus how she looks in real life.

On the left, she poses perfectly with a subtle, modelesque angle to accentuate her curves — stomach sucked in, buttocks poked out. On the right, however, Puhto stands upright with her head to the sky as she smiles and allows her tummy to stick out naturally.

“In photos I constantly suck in my tummy or try and hide it and stick out my booty as much as possible. But why?” she captioned the photo.

“We’re constantly flooded with photos of ‘perfection’ on social media and see advertisements about ways to change your body to fit a certain idealized body trend.”

Rather than striving for perfection, she encouraged her 319,000 followers to learn to accept the skin they’re in.

“We constantly work on changing our bodies, but why don’t we focus more on changing the way we look at our bodies,” Puhto wrote. “Don’t focus on negativity, focus on accepting and loving what you dislike about yourself. You have this body and it allows you to live life.”

“We should all allow ourselves to experience life to the fullest without the fear of judgment about our bodies, by ourselves or by others,” she added.

Puhto’s followers praised her for exposing social media’s dangerous beauty standards and having the courage to show her real self.

“You’re beautiful and amazing. You should be proud of the message you are sending and actively changing unhealthy ideals,” one Instagram user commented.

“Your posts have helped me out so much,” another person said. “I always beat myself up for being bloated,”

Yet another follower added, “You’re the reason I love my own body.”

A blogger celebrating the one-year anniversary since she removed her breast implants is warning women of the potential dangers before deciding to go under the knife.

Sia Cooper, who blogs about motherhood and fitness, took to Instagram on Wednesday to commemorate her implant removal. Her breast enhancements deteriorated her health, she told her more than 1.1 million followers, and now she wants other women to beware.

“I cannot believe it’s been one freaking year since I removed my breast implants,” Cooper captioned a photo of herself holding up the former implants. “Last year, I found myself on what honestly felt like the verge of death. I was 29 feeling like I was trapped in an 80 year old’s body.”

The mother of two listed a number of health defects she experienced with her breast implants, including weight gain, body pains, energy deficiency, hair loss and autoimmune symptoms. 

After consulting doctors and getting no answers and negative blood test results, Cooper said she “decided to consider the two large foreign objects inside of my body.”

“I took a gamble and chose to remove them,” she said.

Within days, Cooper said she saw improvements to her body and overall health. After seven years, she said, she could breathe properly. Soon she was able to reach her desired weight loss goal and got back the energy of a 20-year-old.

“Within a year, most of my symptoms are either gone or improved,” Cooper said.

The blogger warned women to stay informed and do their research before deciding to get breast implants, which she pointed out could potentially cause cancer, according to an FDA report.

“The cosmetic surgery is a billion [dollar] industry that preys on the insecurities of women,” she said.

“Removing my implants has taught me to [love] myself and my body more than ever,” she added. “I mean, the grass isn’t always green with bigger boobs.”

This might be the most labor-intensive way to ensure you get coal from Santa — or your wife.

Nichola Mullen-King, 36, shared photos of a very involved plan that her husband, Carl, hatched as an Elf on the Shelf prank. According to Nichola, Carl, 24, approached her about wrapping the entire kitchen in gift wrap to trick their 6-year-old son Max into thinking the mischievous elf did it.

Nichola agreed to the stunt. However, according to her Monday post on Facebook, she did not realize what an undertaking it would be.

“My a–h— of a husband came up with the bright idea for us to wrap part of the kitchen for Ef on the Shelf… 2 hours later and a divorce on the cards, it’s done including the fruit, eggs, utensils and chopping board,” she wrote.

The U.K. couple’s prank quickly went viral on social media with thousands liking and commenting on the crazy stunt. Several tagged others in comments, suggesting they would like to pull off their own kitchen-wrapping makeover.

“Possible idea?” one person wrote, tagging another in the comment.

“I want someone to be this extra with,” another said.

“This is next level for elf on the shelf,” someone else commented.

The 2 hours-worth of work — including the alleged threats of divorce — were apparently all worth it, though, seeing as Nichola shared with Metro that Max was “absolutely flabbergasted” by the finished display when he came downstairs the next morning.

Originally, the boy did not want the Christmas elf to make an appearance this year, as he thought “the elf gets him in trouble with Santa,” Nichola said.

“But he had a last-minute change of heart on Saturday, which prompted Carl to think outside of the box on the spot,” she continued. “I assumed Carl, who is a customer service advisor, was joking when he said let’s wrap the whole kitchen. But after reading Max a book and putting him to bed, he had started and asked me for a hand.”

Nichola said she “couldn’t stop laughing” during the wrapping prank, but she didn’t say if she was still in high spirits during the 40 minutes it took to unwrap everything in the kitchen – including the eggs.
