A hearse driver and funeral director made a pit stop, leaving the body and coffin of the veteran they were transporting in the hearse.  They were on their way to a funeral service and left the hearse waiting in the parking lot while they took a coffee break. Both employees were fired for this thoughtless and disrespectful move when it was brought to the attention of Veterans Funeral Care, the funeral home they were working for.

If you're having trouble, the flight attendant's announcement was "The captain cannot take off when we have ice on the wings, and we don't want to die."



Passenger Ella Ryan, posted to Instagram her account of the chaotic travel delays, "This is what happens when you've been delayed almost 8 hours, everyone's at a lost including staff 'we don't want to die' absolute mayhem. All hell was breaking loose when a member of staff made this outrageous announcement."



She also revealed passengers were "continuously receiving inconsistent reasons for the delay" and were only given a £3.50 ($7.20) voucher. You'd think after 8 hours they'd get a full refund.



The discount airline Ryanair responded with only a statement of, "We will be speaking to the crew member involved and apologize for the regrettable comment she made in the heat of the moment".

Worst office dance party ever. Also, while it's nice for Foxconn to imply "none of you will ever ever get laid off just because we're having robots do your jobs instead," does it really work that way? When you're moving "higher up the value chain," usually that implies more training or education. Are you really going to train over a million workers, Foxconn? Terrible working conditions suck, but so does getting laid off of a job that you were desperate enough to hang on to.

I guess the moral is that when you complain you're being treated like robots, consider whether or not you could be a robot and still be capable of doing your job.

It looks like Lemon had a bit too much of the bubbly on NYE. There are two sides forming as this budding controversy takes on a life of it's own.

Was Kathy Griffin's behavior inappropriate from the get-go, and was Lemmon's comment almost a poor guy with vaguely impaired judgment taking the bait?

Or was Lemon someone who clearly had been served enough, and was in no place to be interviewing/broadcasting publicly?

Maybe a bit of both.There's always cause to throw up a big 'so what?' What do you think?

His apparently-laden interview went viral; apparently, he knows the word because he "went to school and has a large brain."
