If you lose your keys in a trash compactor, it’s best to call a locksmith. This was a lesson learned the hard way by one unnamed 71-year-old Henrico, Virginia woman on Tuesday night. Instead of calling a locksmith, the woman stepped inside the compactor to get her lost keys. Luckily, a friend was there to press the emergency stop button and after a couple of hours rescue workers were able to free the woman’s legs, and presumably the rest of her. At last report, the woman was listed in stable condition at a nearby hospital.
Let’s place budget shoes in a high end luxury store and see if any fashionistas notice. Payless shoes did just that by setting up a fake luxury store in Los Angeles called “Palessi,” and stocked it with their budget-priced shoes. They then invited fashion influencers to the grand opening party in which guests gladly paid hundreds of dollars for the shoes that retail from $19.99 to $39.99 at Payless. One person even paid $640 for a pair, but Payless gave everyone their money back after letting them in on the prank.
A married Singapore businessman, identified only as Mr. Chen, didn’t have a happy ending after he had a happy ending at a local massage parlor.

Mr. Chen says he asked the woman for his money back, but she told him “It’s $300 for every time I slept with you” and refused.

Saltlick Township, Pennsylvania’s John Maki and baby mama Rachel Eutsey got into an argument earlier this year. The argument ended when Rachel allegedly pulled a gun and shot Maki to death. If you’re wondering, the argument started when Maki expressed his dissatisfaction with the type of oatmeal Rachel bought and served him for breakfast. In what goes a long way in explaining it all, the dispute occurred the morning after they took their 8-month old child with them to buy crack and then smoked it in the parking lot of a bar.
