Take for example: Was the Mayor of Toronto, Rob Ford, wise in telling the media on camera, that he did, in fact, smoke crack cocaine, but in his defense when he did...he was in a drunken stupor? Yeh, perhaps NOT talking would have been a better approach.
But there were other bad decisions this week as well.
Deputies said a man who was coming to court for a hearing at the Cowlitz County Hall of Justice was arrested after he put a meth pipe in a tray at the security checkpoint Tuesday.
Steven Todd Campbell, 51, was out on bail on charges of possession of methamphetamine and obstruction of justice.
The Cowlitz County sheriff’s office said when Campbell was asked to dump the contents of his pockets into the tray, he took out a three-inch pipe coated with brown residue and covered it with a piece of paper.
The deputy working the scanner recognized it as a pipe used to smoke meth and arrested Campbell.
Campbell was sent back to jail on another possession of methamphetamines charge.
You know it's going to be a bad day when you are headed to court on a drug conviction charge and you get charged with a drug possession charge. Very deja vue-ish, I would think.
Should I or Shouldn't I?
A suicidal man who blew up his second-floor flat has been jailed for arson after a court heard his neighbors were lucky to escape the blast alive.
Michael McStay, 39, filled his home up with gas with the intention of committing suicide but then changed his mind and opened the windows to let the fumes out.
But before all the gas had escaped, McStay lit a cigarette, sparking an explosion which blew the roof off his upstairs flat and causing £270,000 of damage.
Newcastle Crown Court heard how residents living in the flat beneath McStay were fortunate not to be killed in the huge explosion.
McStay has now been jailed for 27 months after pleading guilty to arson.
Sentencing him, Judge Jeremy Freedman said: 'It was your intention to take your own life but you thought better of it and you opened the window and somewhat naively believed the gas would then escape. What you then did, as an act of folly, is light a cigarette and the inevitable happened. There was what can only be described as a massive explosion.
Now that is some serious indecision. I think maybe the neighbors would of fared better with the original plan. Did the judge really use the word folly???
This House Comes With Income Potential
In all the years that I have been in real estate...not once while taking interior pictures, did I miss noticing the production of illegal drugs to the point that I included them in the homes pictures. Oh, I have seen illegal drugs, I just chose not to put them into the pictures. But that is what happened in the UK, when a home in Eaton Bristol went on the market.
The firm describes the terraced house in Easton, Bristol, as being "in need of refurbishment". The ad also stated: "Victorian-style villa in need of refurbishment found on the cusp of Easton and Greenbank and comprising entrance hall, lounge, open-plan kitchen/dining room, with two bedrooms and first-floor bathroom.
The original photos showed the exterior, as well as a bathroom, kitchen, and garden.
AND what is being called a bedroom...
Wonder how many people called in to ask if they were planning an OPEN HOUSE anytime soon.
What is really the worst part as far as decisions go ...not removing "home based business" before calling the Realtor or the Realtor including the picture into the advertisement?
Wife Made Bad Decision on Who to Marry
Jian Feng sued his wife for giving birth to what he called an “incredibly ugly” girl.
“I married my wife out of love, but as soon as we had our first daughter, we began having marital issues,” he told the Irish Times. “Our daughter was incredibly ugly, to the point where it horrified me.”
Initially Jian accused his wife of infidelity, because he knew he could never be the father of an unattractive child. However, DNA tests proved that the child was indeed his. Feng’s wife then came clean and admitted she had about $100,000 worth of cosmetic surgery done in South Korea before they met.
Feng sued his wife on grounds of false pretenses, for not telling him the truth about the plastic surgery, and duping him into believing that she was beautiful. A judge agreed with Feng’s argument and ordered his wife to fork over $120,000.
Now he is just being ugly. How does one say asshats (let's include the judge as well) in Chinese?
