We All Know About the Hazards of Smoking
James Lee Taylor had a bad start to his Tuesday, when he stopped to fill up at a Valero gas station in Trinity. After running into station to buy a pack of cigarettes, James began to attempt to put $5.00 worth of gas into his Mustang. Things quickly took a bad turn when he lit up a cigarette.
The gasoline fumes ignited quickly burning off his facial hair including his eyebrows, melted his cigarette lighter, caught the gas pump on fire, ignited his flip-flops, and charred the side of his car.
A fast thinking Valero employee came out with a fire extinguisher while another turned off the gas supply to the pump. After police arrived, thanks to someone calling 911, it was discovered the James had outstanding
Prior to his incarceration, he told Officer Randy Wheeler that he had always smoked while pumping gas and this was the first time anything like that had happened. He went on to say he wouldn't smoke while getting gas in the future.
Who would of thought that smoking next to a gas pump could possibly lead to trouble? Evidently not James Lee.
What Better Example?
Jessylyn Domingo probably didn't plan on being part of the training for a California college that was conducting classes in emergency preparedness. According to administrators for West Hills College Lemoor in Fresno, CA that is most certainly what she did, though.
While the students were preparing for the next drill, they heard that someone was outside the building having

It soon became apparent to staff and students alike that Jessylyn was actually having a baby on a bench on the college grounds.
Domingo said she was assisted by a man on his way to the training. The man was Charles Freeman, a registered nurse and district director of health care. He had been alerted to the situation by Leo Orange, a learning skills program assistant. The men helped Domingo deliver her baby and wait for an ambulance.
"I was really impressed with the mother," said Freeman. "She was really calm and had a sense of humor."
Baby Landen Alexander weighed 7 pounds, 14 ounces and was 21 inches long at birth.
What are the odds of having your baby while an emergency preparedness class is going on? She really knows how to bring "show and tell" to a class.
Thou Shall Not Steal
Stealing from the office fridge has always been met with disdain but rarely are the police called. A Pennsylvania man didn't get the memo, evidently that office refrigerator theft doesn't warrant a 911 situation.
An unidentified man called the police in Upper Macungie, PA on October 10th, to report that his Strawberry-flavored Jell-O snack was stolen from the break room refrigerator at his workplace.
The gelatin heist occurred at the Wakefern Food Corporation warehouse in Beinigsville, according to the Upper Macungie Township Police Department.
The 39-year-old victim told cops that theft from the shared refrigerator was an ongoing problem, though it is unclear whether comestibles other than Jell-O have previously been boosted.
The Jell-O theft, which was discovered around 11:30 PM by the victim, is an “open investigation,” a police spokesperson told TSG. While cops do not rule out the possibility of a future arrest, it seems unlikely.
I wish they would of released the 911 tape on this. Which is the bigger tool...the guy that had the police come out for a snack sized jello theft or the guy taking food out of the fridge?
She Is Someone's Favorite Teacher
University of Iowa officials are investigating a teaching assistant who inadvertently emailed nude pictures to students instead of homework answers.
Tom Moore, a spokesman for the school, said the math department TA attached the nude pictures to an email sent to 28 pre-calculus students instead of the solutions to some math problems, the Iowa City Press-
Citizen reported Thursday.
Moore said he could not speculate on any consequences that could result from the investigation.
"Ultimately, as a student, any discipline [if it occurs] would be non-public under [the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act]," he said.
Some students sympathized with the TA, whose name has not been released.
Now there is a TA that really knows how to rock the T&A. She probably taught the whole class a valuable lesson. Look at your message before hitting the SEND button.
