Stupid Is, Stupid Does

Two Couples Get Into a Bar Fight Over Someone Passing Gas

At no point in life are you mature enough to smell some nasty flatulence and not react to it. A 53-year-old guy named Richard McBride and his 55-year-old girlfriend Sandra Stoner were at a bar in Key West, Florida last week, sitting near another random couple, when someone passed gas. It’s not clear if it was Richard, Sandra, or someone in the other couple, but Sandra and the other woman started arguing over it. Then they got into each other’s faces. Richard and the other guy tried to break it up, but they wound up getting physical too, and the other guy punched Richard in the face. By the time the cops got there, the man and woman were gone. The cops are trying to track them down, but so far there haven’t been any charges. Get more here.

A Man Automated His Job Didn’t Do Any Work Himself for 6 Years

Redditor FiletOfFish1066 shared this story, and while we have no way of confirming that it actually happened, it’s a good one.  “From around 6 years ago up until now, I have done nothing at work. I am not joking. For 40 hours each week I go to work, play ‘League of Legends’ in my office, browse Reddit, and do whatever I feel like. In the past 6 years I have maybe done 50 hours of real work. So basically nothing. And nobody really cared. The tests were all running successfully. I s*** you not, I had no friends or anything at work either, so nobody ever talked to me except my boss and occasionally the devs for the software I was testing. Yesterday my boss fired me. I guess IT found out after 6 years or so what I was doing and reported it to my boss. I explained I had automated my own job, but was still updating the automation tool, which was a lie. Anyway, I was fired.” Here’s where the stupid comes into play. During that 6 years of doing nothing, he developed an addiction to alcohol and completely forgot how to code! The user has deleted the account, but the Reddit community is encouraging him to get back on the coding horse and try again.
