After purchasing a bag of methamphetamine, a Florida Woman turned the narcotics over to police “because it was ‘junk.’” Investigators allege that 52-year-old Beth Ann Franchak provided the meth to a sheriff’s deputy Thursday afternoon at her residence in St. Pete Beach. Cops say that Franchak told the deputy that she “purchased $20.00 worth of methamphetamine and would like to turn it over to the police because it was ‘junk.’” Franchak handed the cop a small plastic bag containing about a quarter-gram of a “white, crystal like substance resembling methamphetamine.” A subsequent test came back positive for meth. Franchak was arrested for possession of a controlled substance, a felony. She was booked into the county jail, from which she was released late Thursday night on $2,000 bond. (https://bit.ly/3iz6rGy)

It’s not about money or celebrity. And it’s not even about getting your hands dirty. The job with the least prestige is: real estate broker. That’s the word from a nationwide Harris Poll of adults that measured Americans’ perception of the most and least prestigious professions. The professions with the greatest prestige: scientists; doctors; firefighters. The professions with the least prestige: accountant; stockbroker; real estate agent.
Do you feel guilted into tossing change into a tip jar at the counter where you buy your coffee? If so, you’re not alone. In fact, many have taken to calling the tip jar a “guilt jar.” Michael Lynn, a professor at Cornell University and an expert on tipping — he’s published many studies on the topic — worked his way through college by waiting tables. Lynn says he always tips waiters and waitresses extremely well. But when asked about tip jars, he states bluntly that he doesn’t like them. Why? In addition to earning at least minimum wage, cashiers and baristas — those who create coffee concoctions — are providing fairly standardized services, while waiters and waitresses provide services that are fleeting, intangible and highly customized. In other words, what a waiter must do to provide service for one diner often varies widely from what he or she must do for other diners.

A man caught on surveillance video is suspected of stealing cat blood from a veterinary clinic in Florida. The St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office posted pictures showing the man who walked up to the door of the Anastasia Cat Clinic on September 17th. The man was seen touching and inspecting an Antech Diagnostics blood box before leaving the area. About twenty minutes later, a truck seen in the parking area and a man wearing the same clothing walked up to the clinic and took the box. The box contained four vials of cat blood. The vehicle then left the area. Investigators said that the box containing the blood vials amounted to a $600 loss for the clinic. (https://bit.ly/3315li8)
MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by InsuranceChicken.com
schoolteacher whose body, face, and tongue are covered in tattoos and
who has had the whites of his eyes surgically turned black said he
was prevented from teaching at a French kindergarten after a parent
complained he scared their child. But the teacher, 35-year-old
Sylvain Helaine, still teaches children from the age of six up, and
said that, after an initial shock when they see him for the first
time, his pupils see past his appearance. “All of my students and
their parents were always cool with me because basically they knew
me,” said Helaine, who estimated he has spent around 460 hours
under the tattooists’ needle. Despite the setbacks, Helaine said he
would stick with his chosen career. “I’m a primary school teacher
... I love my job.” He said he started getting tattoos at the age
of 27 when, while teaching at a private school in London, he had an
“existential crisis.” Since then, he said, “Getting tattoos is
my passion.” (https://reut.rs/3jknrkX)
