Guy Bonds With Strangers Over "Magic" Bread With Lengthy Expiration Date

There's something about breaking magic bread with strange drunks that seems almost weirdly biblical. That or this stranger just didn't have enough money for bread and tricked this guy into a free snack. This sounds small and dumb but two months is a long time for bread. Sadly, leaving bread out like that will probably cut its days shorter than expected. For another petty and stupid food story, here's a reporter who kept winning office chili cook-offs with store bought chili.

Power-tripping Manager Gets Most of Her Store Fired, Then Herself

Incompetent power-tripping managers can get themselves into some really stupid situations, like this boss who demanded a special contractor be on call 24/7 and ended up with a $10K invoice.
