The bank let her check bounce, so the grandma wrote this letter. Her answer is brilliant!

in Funny

Anyone, who has ever been annoyed with a bank, will understand this 86-year-old. What she wrote in the letter, addressed to the CEO, is absolutely brilliant:

This is an actual letter that was sent to a bank by an 86-year-old woman. It was so amusing that the bank’s manager decided to have it published in the New York Times.

Dear Sir: I am writing to thank you for bouncing my check with which I endeavored to pay my plumber last month. By my calculations, 3 nanoseconds must have elapsed between his presenting the check and the arrival in my account of the funds needed to honor it..

I refer, of course, to the automatic monthly deposit of my entire pension, an arrangement which, I admit, has been in place for only 8 years. You are to be commended for seizing that brief window of opportunity, and also for debiting my account $30 by way of penalty for the inconvenience caused to your bank.

My thankfulness springs from the manner in which this incident has caused me to rethink my errant financial ways. I noticed that whereas I personally answer your telephone calls and letters, — when I try to contact you, I am confronted by the impersonal, overcharging, pre-recorded, faceless entity which your bank has become.

From now on, I, like you, choose only to deal with a flesh-and-blood person My mortgage and loan repayments will therefore and hereafter no longer be automatic, but will arrive at your bank, by check, addressed personally and confidentially to an employee at your bank whom you must nominate.

Be aware that it is an OFFENSE under the Postal Act for any other person to open such an envelope. Please find attached an Application Contact which I require your chosen employee to complete. I am sorry it runs to eight pages, but in order that I know as much about him or her as your bank knows about me, there is no alternative.

Please note that all copies of his or her medical history must be countersigned by a Notary Public, and the mandatory details of his/her financial situation (income, debts, assets and liabilities) must be accompanied by documented proof.

In due course, at MY convenience, I will issue your employee with a PIN number which he/she must quote in dealings with me. I regret that it cannot be shorter than 28 digits but, again, I have modeled it on the number of button presses required of me to access my account balance on your phone bank service.

As they say, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Let me level the playing field even further. When you call me, press buttons as follows: IMMEDIATELY AFTER DIALING, PRESS THE STAR (*) BUTTON FOR ENGLISH

#1. To make an appointment to see me

#2. To query a missing payment.

#3. To transfer the call to my living room in case I am there.

#4 To transfer the call to my bedroom in case I am sleeping.

#5. To transfer the call to my toilet in case I am attending to nature.

#6. To transfer the call to my mobile phone if I am not at home.

#7. To leave a message on my computer, a password to access my computer is required. Password will be communicated to you at a later date to that Authorized Contact mentioned earlier.

#8. To return to the main menu and to listen to options 1 through

#9. To make a general complaint or inquiry. The contact will then be put on hold, pending the attention of my automated answering service.

#10. This is a second reminder to press* for English.

While this may, on occasion, involve a lengthy wait, uplifting music will play for the duration of the call. Regrettably, but again following your example, I must also levy an establishment fee to cover the setting up of this new arrangement. May I wish you a happy, if ever so slightly less prosperous New Year?

Your Humble Client And remember: Do not make old people mad. We do not like being old in the first place, so it does not take much to  us off.”

Dog desperately chases behind owner’s car after being dumped at lake – let’s help police identify man

in Trending/Uncategorized

At Lake Ming in Bakersfieldlake, California a heartbreaking moment is captured as a dog chases his owner’s car after being abandoned.

The dog can be seen refusing to leave his side, the man walks back to his car and gets behind the wheel. The animal puts its paws on the driver’s side door, trying to get in, but its owner put his foot down and the black sedan drove off.

This disturbing video clip is steadily spreading online as he is seen physically beating and then abandoning his innocent pet.

Steven Sage Silver, who was in his car less than 100-yards away from where the incident took place recorded the evidence.

In the video you can hear Silver speaking as he records the video, saying: “Hell no, that’s your dog man. That’s fucked up. This guy is dumping his dog right here.”

A man can be seen walking his dog away from the Sedan in the video footage, while his pooch is totally oblivious whats about to happen next.

The owner forcibly throws the dog out of the car as he manages to get back in the driver’s seat. He then quickly drives off, leaving his loyal pet to chase him down the street.

The unnamed man tried to get into a fight with him after being confronted as to why he was being physical with the dog, according to Silver.

In the caption of the video, which he uploaded to Facebook, Silver said: “These people were hitting this dog in the face when I first approached them. They then abandoned the dog after the male tried to get into a physical altercation with me.

As he drove off he was yelling: “It’s your dog not mine.”

Kern County Animal Services have reportedly opened an investigation into the incident requesting information from the public. Its possible the owners could face misdemeanour charges if their identities is discovered.

No innocent animal deserves to be treated like this. I hope his owner is brought to justice.

Pit bull has toddler in mouth by diaper and bangs at back door: Family realizes there’s fire

in Trending

Having a dog around a small helpless baby around certain dog breeds with a reputation for being “aggressive”can cause some concern. Pit bull dogs in particular are probably top of the list as they are often viewed as unpredictable and often dangerous.

The unthinkable happened when mom Latana Chaiwas was home with her seven month old baby girl Masailah. Masailah is about the size of the family’s pit bull, Sasha, who is eight months old. Born just days apart they pair spent every moment together, sharing a bed and even a bath.

It was around midnight one Saturday night when Latana noticed Sasha behaving very strangely. “I heard like, a loud bang and I was like, ‘what’s going on?’ I heard Sasha crying and she kept jumping at the door. As soon as I got to the door, she runs in and starts barking,” Nana said

Once she opened the door to let Sasha in she ran to Masailah’s room. As she noticed black smoke coming from the ceiling, a fire from their neighbours house was spreading to theirs. Nana jumped up, let the dog inside, and saw the terrible danger headed towards them.

At that moment I opened the back door and Sasha ran into our home, straight into our bedroom,” she explains.I looked up and there’s black smoke coming from my neighbor’s house. You can see the flames coming out. I ran into the room and I see Sasha. She has my baby by the diaper just dragging her off the bed — trying to get her to safety.”

Mom Latana quickly rushed to her baby’s room and found Sasha grabbing Masailah by the diaper and pulling her to safety. Nana shared her feelings about her sweet puppy: “I owe her everything. If it wasn’t for her, I would have still been in bed and things could have taken a worse turn.”

The family are grateful for Sasha’s barking which helped warn and keep them all safe.

How to grow an unlimited number of lemons in your own kitchen – 1 seed is all you need

in Trending

If you love lemons like me, why don’t you try growing your own at home. After all lemons are a very useful fruit to have around the house. They are full of health benefits being healthy and taste great or drink a few glasses of lemon water.

Usually I buy my lemons in a store, until I discovered how easy it is to grow them in your own home.

Lemons are actually great at fighting off colds – so they are simply a must have for your home.

So how does one grow lemons in their own home? We will explain in a few simple steps.

Growing lemons at home

What you will need:

  • 1 lemon
  • Soil with plenty of nutrition
  • A suitable container or pot
  • Saran wrap
  • A spot with lots of sunlight

What to plant:

Step 1. Put your soil in the appropriate pot and add water to dampen it. You should aim to leave about 3cm to the edge of the pot.

Step 2. Cut the lemon and select the seed with the best shape. Don’t dry it, the moisture will help. Make a small hole in the soil and place the seed inside.

Step 3. Cover over with soil and more water. All types of flower soil will work, but I recommend using a mixture of peat moss, perlite, vermiculite and organic fertilizer.

Step 4. Cover the pot with plastic to lock in the moisture, and then place it in a sunny spot.

Step 5. Take care not to water over-excessively, which can cause the seed to rot. Keep track of the pot, and as soon as the lemon tree starts to grow, remove the plastic. Note* this should usually occur in one to two weeks.

Step 6. Place the pot in direct sunlight. Remember your lemon tree needs eight hours of light a day, and the soil surrounding it should be constantly moist.

How to take care of your lemon plant:

Water the tree regularly to ensure it has enough moisture, but make sure the pot has drainage holes in the bottom.

Always ensure it has enough sunlight at least eight hours each day.

When necessary add fertiliser and move the tree to a larger pot when it becomes too big. After a time you may have to move it to a balcony, porch or garden.

Remember the best time to grow lemons is during the spring. You don’t have to, but I’ve found the whole process to be more enjoyable and productive at this time of year.

Parents convinced their 6-year-old can’t speak, until a visit to the dentist

in Trending

Its an exciting time for all parents when their child experiences things for the first time, for example their first step to their first word, or any other milestones that are celebrated.

Although it’s certainly not a competition, it can often be incredibly stressful for parents whose children don’t develop at the same rate as other children.

When six-year-old Mason Motz, from Katy, Texas, was 10 days old he suffered a brain aneurysm. When he was one Mason was brought to a speech therapist.

There he was diagnosed with Sotos syndrome, a rare genetic disorder that affects growth and development. His parents believed the brain aneurysm, was the reason why his speech was delayed.

Over time Mason was able to pronounce the beginning of a word and his parents Dalan and Meredith were able understand what he was saying.

However in 2017 when Mason was 6 everything seemed to change after a visit to the dentist.

Mason went to his paediatric dentist Amy Luedemann-Lazar, for a routine check up when she made a remarkable discovery.

Dr. Luedemann-Lazar noticed that the band of tissue under his tongue was attached close to the tip of his tongue, keeping him from moving it freely.

Mason’s parents granted her permission to perform laser surgery to untie his tongue. This procedure only lasted ten seconds.

After coming home, his parents heard Mason say, “I’m hungry, I’m thirsty, can we watch a movie?”

His parents, could hardly believe their ears as they had never heard their son speak properly before, now all of a sudden he talking at a much higher level than previously. Mason spoke at the level of a one-year level only an hour previous. 

Following the operation, he was talking at the same level as a four-year-old. Doctors expect him to catch up with his peers when he becomes a teenager.

Take a look at the video clip below to learn more about this remarkable discovery.

German shepherd goes for a car ride: Watch his reaction when he realizes he’s going to the vet

in Trending

If you have ever taken you dog to the vet then you know it isn’t entirely the happiest moment for your animal.

Although my dog has never really had a traumatic experience at the vet, once she realizes where we are she begins to tremble.

This German Shepherd called Enzo doesn’t really seem to like the vet either.

German Shepards are considered tough, brave dogs who make great guard dogs. They are also very intelligent and are often used sniffer dogs for police.

This breed is also commonly used in the army and many become fearless guardians for soldiers, helping to sniff out roadside bombs.

But for this German Shepard all the toughness goes away once he realizes where he is.

As his ears turn down and he begins to whine when the car stops and he notices the vet building.

Enzo is terrified but his reaction is one all dog owners will certainly relate to. Luckily Enzo’s owners captured the moment on camera.

Enzo begins to circle the back seat frantically, as if trying to find the escape door.

His owners can’t help laugh at his dramatic response, knowing that it’s a just routine visit to keep him healthy.

Take a look at this brave dog’s funny reaction in the video below.

Mom with 2 autistic sons told to keep “weird boys” away from other kids at play center

in Trending

Gemma Ryan along her husband David their two sons, 10-year-old William and 6-year-old Edward live in the United kingdom.William and Edward both have autism, while Edward also suffers from ADHD and Tourette syndrome. Because of their difficulties it means they differ slightly from other kids in school and other social environments.

Both of the brothers have certain ticks that result from their conditions. When out in public, it’s not uncommon for them to do things like make loud noises or flap their arms uncontrollably.

Gemma took William and Edward to a play centre in August 2016. Gemma had pictured a great day for both boys but instead they had a miserable time of things, mainly because of the attitude of other parents!

Gemma feels no child should be forced to experience things her sons are often subjected to.

Because of their disabilities they have often been targets for bullying, despite having minimal control over sudden vocal outbursts and movements.

When Gemma brought her sons to the play centre in August, 2016, she was approached by another mom who said she: “should keep my ‘weird’ boys away from her son and that I needed to understand they shouldn’t be here.”

Gemma, was not about to let another woman decide what her boys could and couldn’t do.

“I confronted her and told her my son was not weird and that she needed to educate herself on these kinds of conditions,” Gemma explains.

About ten minutes later another man arrived at the play center with his son. The boy made friends with William and the two played for a time, before William put his arm around him.

Gemma explained the man suddenly freaked out, claiming he would strangle William if he did it again.

Naturally the experience took its toll on Gemma and the boys. It was an almost a year before Gemma felt comfortable returning to the centre.

William is starting to understand more and more that he is not the same as others and that people will often him treat him differently, while Edward is still not old enough to understand,” Gemma said.

Gemma and her husband David have now began an initiative for children with autism, particularly designed to ensure they are included and accepted in society.

The event included stalls selling sensory items, a silent disco, superhero characters and talks about autism which was set up by David and his business partner, Chris Wright.

Spectrum” turned out to be a major success, with around 1,000 people turning up to enjoy the day. William even performed his rendition of Michael Jackson’s iconic “Thriller”!

Cops Ask Old Lady Why She Has a Bag Full of Cash. Her Response Was Priceless

in Funny

There are many times in life when we might see something that we would consider to be unusual. Sometimes, we just take note and go about our day but at other times, it might be so strange it stops us in our tracks.

When you are a police officer, any unusual sights are not only going to get your attention, they are going to make you want an explanation. Sometimes the explanation is ordinary but at other times, it is the strangest thing you’ve ever heard. That is the case with this story:

A little old lady was walking down the street dragging two large plastic garbage bags behind her.

One of the bags was ripped and every once in a while a $20 fell out onto the sidewalk. Noticing this, a policeman stopped her, and said, “Ma’am, there are $20 bills falling out of that bag.”Oh, really? Darn it!” said the little old lady. “I’d better go back and see if I can find them. Thanks for telling me officer.

Well, now, not so fast,” said the cop.“Where did you get all that money? You didn’t steal it, did you?”Oh, no, no”, said the old lady. “You see, my back yard is right next to a Golf course.

A lot of Golfers come and pee through a knot hole in my fence, right into my flower Garden. It used to really tick me off. Kills the flowers, you know. Then I thought, ‘why not make the best of it? So, now, I stand behind the fence by the knot hole, real quiet, with my hedge clippers.

Every time some guy sticks his thing through my fence, I surprise him, grab hold of it and say, ‘O.K., buddy! Give me $20, or off it comes.’ “Well, that seems only fair,” said the cop, laughing. “OK. Good luck! Oh, by the way, what’s in the other bag?” “Not everybody pays.”

Children discover dog abandoned in cage – starved for months and just days away from death

in Trending

Dice’s owners left the apartment they were living in and just abandoned him in a crate with no food or water. A group of kids alerted police after saving this starving creature. Dice may not have lived if it had been any longer.

A large group of kids alerted Florida police who were at a Fort Lauderdale apartment complex. The kids thought he had been locked up for about a week but officers knew it had been longer than that by just taking one look at him.

The tenants moved out and left him in the backyard in a crate with no food or water,” said Tracey Godin, cofounder of Feeling Fine Rescue In Loxahatchee Florida. “He was not fed for months. The last week would have just been the final deterioration.”

The police alerted animal control who brought Dice to a local shelter.

Tracey Godin, who runs the rescue centre with her daughter, just couldn’t believe the state of this poor creature. Tracey was so moved by Dice’s condition. “Tears immediately came to my face,” she said.

The following day Tracey rushed Dice to the vet as he was so weak he could barely walk.S

He was 30 pounds, but he should have been 65 pounds. He was dehydrated and anemic,” she said.

You could see his skull- there was just no muscle mass in his body at all. In my opinion, if he had been in that cage another day, he would not have made it”.

When Dice was healthy enough to leave the vet, he was looked after at the Feeling Fine Rescue, which Tracey and her daughter run from their home.

The non profit animal rescue cares for animals who are the innocent victims of abuse, cruelty, neglect, abandonment and homelessness. 

Once he was in the safe hands of Tracey and her daughter, he quickly recovered.

He was 40 pounds within one week. Two weeks later, he was 50 pounds, and by the weekend he was 65 pounds. Basically everyday you could see a difference in the dog.” Tracey said.

Over the course of eight weeks he returned to his former glory and caught the eye of a family looking to adopt another dog.

They really fell in love with him,” Tracey said. “They asked if they could do a meet and greet at their property with their two current dogs.”

Dice went home with his new family on a foster-to-adopt basis two weeks later.

The family immediately fell in love with Dice who also bonded with their two small children as they decided they were going to keep Dice forever.

They called me last night and said ‘We’re more in love with him than the moment we met him, and we would like to never bring him back.’” Tracey said.

I was crying because this family is absolutely incredible… and I don’t think that Dice could have gone to a better home.”

30-minute-old baby abandoned in park in sub-zero temperatures, left “crying for her life”

in Trending

There was an abandoned newborn baby who was wrapped in a plastic bag found in a park. According to newspapers the newborn was only an hour old. The baby was found while a mother and son were out walking their dog. Even the baby’s umbilical cord was still attached.

Rima Zvaliauskiene and her 27-year-old son Ovidijus discovered the baby after hearing the baby crying from inside the bag while out on a walk.

Rima and her son discovered the baby along side a bench in Newham, England after 10pm. At the time the temperature was below freezing and the child, called Roman, was wrapped in a towel and a shopping bag to keep him warm.

There was a crying noise from the bag. She was crying for her life. The baby saved herself,” Rima said.

Nurses are now looking after Roman, while police have set up an investigate to locate the mother is.

Ovidijus, Rita’s son said: “She looked a bit purple. She was very cold to the touch. Her forehead and ears looked like they were a bit frosty, she was cold. We feel great that we helped save the baby’s life. I’m glad we were there or the baby might not have survived too much longer.”

Police didn’t have any luck finding the mother after using sniffer dogs to follow the mothers trail of blood.

Surely the baby was naked at least the mother could have wrapped it up. If anyone finds a baby that’s cold you can always put it under your coat. The baby was so lucky it was still even able to cry.

Shane Clarke,Inspector of North East Command Unit appealed to the infant’s mother, reading: “We are growing increasingly concerned for your welfare and I urge you to make contact either with police, your local hospital or GP surgery. It is really important that we know that you are safe. I would also urge anyone who has information that could help us to reunite this baby with her mother to come forward.”

Although we have no idea how a mother could abandon her baby in freezing cold temperatures, we thankful that baby Roman was saved. The story could have had a very different outcome if it weren’t for Rima and her son.
