Show Notes for Thursday June 7, 2018


Dear John,

Every summer we get a week-long vacation as a family. We have been doing the same thing every year for a long time. We go to my husband's family cabin at a lake for a week with his whole family. My daughter is now 15 and my son is 12 and they don't want to go. Secretly, I don't want to go either. How do we approach my husband about this? He actually gets two weeks of vacation, so I was thinking I might suggest he still go, but we do something different as a family. Should I even admit that I don't want to go? Should I just let him know that the kids want to do something else? Please help me out of this jam!

Police in Portland, Oregon say a 43-year-old man who was driving drunk on the wrong side of the street offered officers $50 to let him go. Police pulled the drunk driver over this past weekend as he was driving toward an officer's car on the wrong side of the road at SE Division and 148th Avenue. Police said the man's blood-alcohol level was .23 - nearly three times the legal limit, and he even offered the two arresting officers $50 to let him go. They did not take the bribe. The man was arrested for driving under the influence and bribery. He has since been released from jail on his own recognizance. (

A plane heading to the Spanish Island of Gran Canaria was forced to make an emergency landing after passengers began to vomit and faint because of the stench of one man's body odor. The man in question smelled so bad that other tourists began fainting and vomiting after the plane took off from Schiphol Airport in the Netherlands. Belgian passenger Piet van Haut who was on board the flight described the smell of the man as “unbearable.” Staff on board the Transavia plane had reportedly tried to quarantine the passenger in a toilet of the Boeing 737 before pilots took the action to divert the flight. The plane landed in the Portuguese city of Fargo to allow the smelly man to be removed from the aircraft. (

MOMENT OF DUH:By (Find Funding For College)
An Indian man who spat into his boss's drink when he thought nobody was watching was actually caught in the act on camera. The office staff member was seen spitting in the woman's water cup moments before handing it to her. The man was reportedly unaware that craftily-placed cameras were located around the office in Aligarh, a city in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. The video was uploaded to social media where it has been widely-circulated, and the man has been suspended. An investigation began four days previously when the legal officer noticed a change in the man's behavior. After becoming worse, the female official decided to set up a hidden camera and record his actions. When she realized that the orderly had served her water and had spat in it, she initiated proceedings against him.
