What An Odd Time To Potty Train

Social Media had a burst of activity in the last week when a Utah woman posted a pic on Facebook of a mother potty training her daughters in the middle of a Utah restaurant.

Kimberly Decker was eating at the Thanksgiving Point Deli when she realized that a woman at a nearby table wasn’t just using potty training seats as boosters while the pair of toddlers sat at the table in the middle of the dining room.

“While we sat down to have lunch, I noticed this young Mother was potty training her two twin daughters at the table. It didn’t quite register at first what was happening, but when I took a second glance I realized this is NOT OK! I decided to snap a picture of the whole incident and then later that afternoon as a ‘joke’ I decided to post it on Facebook. I couldn’t believe the response I got.  She had to undo the jumpsuits, and take them all the way down so they were completely nude, with the jumpsuits down to their ankles just eating their chicken nuggets, sitting on little toddler potties,”

Facebook took the pic down, but not before it went viral and the restaurant reported several complaints.  The mother and her kids have not been identified.

Thief Swallows Ring, Pawns It Later

38-year-old Angele Winters Hardman of Sandy, UT is in jail after admitting to stealing an engagement ring worth more than $4000 by swallowing it.

Hardman was at a local Macy’s jewelry department looking at the ring when she told the clerk she couldn’t get it off.  After failed attempts with lotion the clerk left to get something else only to return to Hardman claiming she was successful removing it and handed the clerk a ring.  As Hardman walked off the clerk immediately knew that what she had been handed was a fake. Security was called, and a report was filed, but the ring could not be found and she was allowed to leave the store.

Police were called and it was during their investigation that Hardman finally admitted she’d swallowed the ring and then went through the “natural digestive process” to then take and pawn the ring in another town.  She was charged with retail theft and the ring was recovered from the pawn shop, although it’s clear it can’t be resold – can it?


When A Plan Fails To Come Together

In Utah, 52 year old Mary Ethyl Hansen is in jail on charges of murder.  Of her own 18 year old daughter.

But Hansen claims it was part of a suicide pact, its just that she bungled her end of the bargain.

Reports say that Hansen showed up at a neighbors home asking them to call police because she’d just shot her daughter, Virginia Ray Hansen.  When police showed up they found the daughter with a fatal shot to the head and the mother with a gunshot wound to her own.  The mother claimed that the pair suffered from mental illness and both wanted to die.  A pact was made.

“The mother went ahead and shot the daughter and came out, got into her car, drove down the street, honked her horn and, once the neighbor came outside, announced that she had shot her daughter and herself and then drove back down the street and parked in the driveway again,” said Drew Sanders of the West Jordan Police Department.

Neighbors reported that the pair were reclusive and that the mother had health issues and the daughter had dropped out of school and was finishing school online.

The mother was treated and released into police custody where booked on first degree felony homicide.

Joe Schmo Promptly Wrecks His Lambo

It seems like such a great idea:  Give away a $300,000+ super car, in this case a lime green  Lamborghini Murcielago  at the halftime of a BYU football game.  Call the contest, “Joe Schmo in a Lambo” and let whatever knucklehead that wins it drive off in a car capable of street performance that could easily kill him.

David Dopp of Utah turned out to be that Joe Schmo and after winning the car on a Saturday, he wrecked it that same Saturday.

“We were coming up a hill, going around a corner; and as soon as we came up the hill, we either hit some black ice or loose gravel or something, and all of a sudden we just started spinning,” Dopp said. “We ended up in a field, and I back-ended a couple of fence posts.”

Dopp also won driving lessons, but he didn’t make time to participate in those before he bent up his prized car.  Luckily he was also forced to have insurance in place prior to taking possession of the 640 horsepower gifted Italian super car.
