Drunk and hankering for a pie, a 26-year-old New Zealand man became enraged and smashed up an ATM machine when it wouldn't give him the cash to buy one. Hayden Caskey was reportedly “heavily intoxicated” when he put his card into the ATM machine. When the ATM “ate” his card and requested he contact the bank, Caskey became enraged and began punching the machine with his fists. He then smashed a glass bottle against it. Caskey completely destroyed the perspex used to house the ATM computer and also damaged the ATM itself, leaving it inoperable. He then left the scene. When he was located later by police he told them he damaged the machine because it ate his bankcard and he needed the card to buy a pie. (

Reports of a man buying upwards of $1 million of toys from the now-defunct Toys 'R' Us stores across North Carolina have been verified. An employee at a Cary store, who was not authorized to speak on behalf of the company said the buyer visited the Cary location to purchase toys. That employee went on to say, "It didn't happen all at this location. We don't have that much inventory. It happened at various stores. They likely went through the Raleigh liquidator." Tuesday, the only items remaining at the Cary location were a small selection of assorted baby clothes and a few small aisles of toys. In a phone call to the Raleigh store, an employee declined to comment when asked about further information about the anonymous shopper or what their immediate plans were following the large purchase.$1-million-worth-of-toys-r-us-inventory/3676387/?__twitter_impression=true

MOMENT OF DUH:By (Find Funding For College)
There's customer service, and then there's Jimmy John's customer service. Twitter user Kayla Speer shared a story on Twitter Wednesday night about how she found out her long-distance boyfriend was cheating on her. It started out innocently enough with her wanting to surprise her boyfriend of 3 months with a Jimmy John's sandwich while he was studying for finals. Kayla said her boyfriend told her he was going to take a nap, and she let him know that food was on the way. When she didn't hear back, she assumed he was asleep, but then things started to get a little weird. The delivery driver double checked that the order was for her boyfriend and that she was not in town. She confirmed their long-distance relationship, saying she was not in town with her boyfriend. The delivery driver came clean, according to Kayla. Kayla continued by saying she had some follow up questions for the delivery driver, who she said "graciously answered" all of them. She was able to confirm that it was indeed her boyfriend. In the end though, Kayla sounded grateful for Jimmy John's honesty about the situation and thanked them for going above and beyond. "Not many would do what that delivery driver did, and I’m very grateful he called me and was honest about the situation. #WWJJD (What Would Jimmy Johns Do?)" Here's what Jimmy John's did: they offered to cater Kayla's "breakup" party!
