Prank Bathroom Signs Backfire
If you ever go to McGuire's Irish Pub
in Destin, Florida, it pays to read the fine print, especially when going to the bathroom. For years McGuire's has played a joke on its customers. The fine print on the "Ladies" sign explains that it's actually the men's room, and vice versa for the "Mens" sign. But recently, "A father filed a complaint, after his daughter was interrupted by a man in what she thought was the ladies room. Now, state regulators are threatening to close the pub because of the lack of proper signs." McGuire's general manager says that it was merely intended to be an "Irish joke."
Fake Hostage Situation at Bank
If you ever decide to blindfold and kidnap one of your co-workers as a joke, don't stop at the local bank to make a deposit. People might get the wrong idea: "Squad cars swarmed into Westfield Valencia Town Center around noon and a California Highway Patrol plane scoped out the streets for the suspected robber, who was gone from the bank by the time they arrived. There was a catch: It wasn't a robbery. The man had "kidnapped" his co-worker and was taking her to a birthday lunch, and had stopped at the SCV Bank branch on Town Center Drive to make a quick deposit. "I would say he could have made a better decision than to go into a bank," said Deputy Greg Hutt."
Robbers Disguised as Jehovah's Witnesses
A Swedish newspaper, The Local, reports that "Police in the Dalarna region are on the lookout for two well-dressed young men following an unusual burglary in Orsa on Sunday evening. The men, aged between 20 and 30, managed to gain entry to an elderly woman's apartment after dressing up as Jehovah's Witnesses. 'Once inside the apartment, they pulled out a knife and forced her to hand over jewellery and money,' said police spokesman Tore Strand."
Hmm. So how do they know the robbers were merely "dressing up" as Jehovah's Witnesses. Maybe they were a pair of Jehovah's Witnesses gone bad.
