Show Notes for Thursday September 20, 2018


Dear John,

I'm in a pickle. Not sure if you can help, but I thought it would be worth asking for input. I have been a manager for about 6 months now, so I'm still pretty new. I've hired several new people recently and there are two ladies that just can't get along. They're both a little too competitive and everything turns into a major competition. Now I have one of them telling me she's going to quit if I don't fire the other one. If I have my choice, I'd like to keep them both, but If I have to pick one, it's the one who's not asking me to choose between them. They both do a good job, but everything always turns into a comptition and they're hurting the whole company by acting the way they do. What should I do? Fire one... fire both... let one quit? This is a ton for me to decide since I'm still so new at this. I sure coud use your help.

Signed – New Manager

As he faced arrest, a Florida Man took the opportunity to channel his inner Michael Scott from “The Office.” According to an arrest affidavit, a sheriff’s deputy pulled over a car driven by 31-year-old Brandon McComas after noticing the vehicle did not have a tag light. Approaching McComas’s car on a Vero Beach street, the cop spotted the driver “attempting to conceal a large bulge in his left front pocket with his arm.” Deputy Scott Prouty then asked McComas to exit the car. While conducting a pat down of McComas, the deputy inquired about the “long cylindrical object” in the suspect's pants. “That's what she said,” replied McComas. The deputy subsequently handcuffed McComas and confiscated a cylindrical case containing marijuana and a glass pipe. He was issued tag light and pot possession citations. (

Police are investigating an attempted robbery at an E-Cig of Denver store in Aurora. The clumsy would-be thief dropped the gun over the counter and quickly fled the store, and it was all caught on camera. In the video, the suspect walks up to the counter and pulls out what the owner and employee later identified as an Airsoft, or BB gun. As the footage continues, the suspect fumbles the gun and tries to hop the counter, but the employee picks up the weapon, forcing the suspect to take off running. While the suspect was wearing gloves, the store's owner hopes the evidence left behind will help police. The store owner said, “There were no fingerprints in the store, but definitely on the firearm itself, you know the clip and everything they got fingerprints off of that.” (

Authorities say a Missouri man who accidentally shot himself in the genitals lied to investigators and said someone else shot him. The Columbia Daily Tribune reports that 19-year-old Taylor Joseph Guthrie is charged with a misdemeanor count of making a false report after he was wounded in July at a mobile home park in Prathersville. Court documents say Gurthrie told Boone County deputies that a suspect fired at him from the park entrance and fled. But deputies found a shell casing near where Guthrie had been standing, indicating the shot hadn’t been fired from the park entrance. Guthrie later said he was actually retrieving the 9mm pistol from a car when it went off. The gun had been reported stolen from Memphis, Tennessee. (
