One thing you’re probably not expecting is to be carjacked. [More]
There’s asking a fast food employee to do you a minor favor — like asking for extra condiments or having a dirty booth wiped down — and then there’s asking that employee to do something against the law — like stashing your bottle of booze in the eatery’s fridge for a day or so. [More]
I once knew a guy who said that with the right outfit and enough confidence, you can get through any door. Looks like a 17-year-old in Oklahoma took that lesson to heart, walking into multiple area Walmarts and walking out with wads of cash in his pocket. [More]
If a local restaurant owner goes on local TV to talk about how he hates gay people and doesn’t want them as customers, it’s not a shock that people will get angry and boycott, protest, petition… the usual stuff. But in the age of Yelp, that owner should probably also expect to find that his business is now being written up online as the “best gay club” around. [More]

You don’t need a driver’s license to own a home. You don’t need to own a home to drive a car. But Allstate insurance has launched a product in Oklahoma that looks at policyholder’s driving records when determining their homeowner’s insurance rates. [More]

While some inept robbers think wearing panties on your face will mask your identity, one man in Oklahoma seems to think that a complete lack of underwear — or really any clothing — is the key to a successful crime. [More]
Remember last week, when we reported on the McDonald’s drive-thru that had been robbed by what appeared to be a female wearing what appeared to be a pair of pantied stretched across her face. Apparently we were only right about one of those assumptions — Yes, in spite of many readers’ doubts, that was a woman in the photos; but it wasn’t a pair of panties; it was a girdle. [More]

Reader Keia tried to return the “shoddily constructed,” “dangerous piece of garbage” for a bike that Walmart sold him, but an employee, backed by the store manager, explained that since Walmart could repair the bike, their return policy didn’t apply.
