It’s really no fun being a scapegoat. Actually, I doubt it’s fun being any type of goat at all. But at least the animal sort can bite-attack anyone who’s being irksome. Unfortunately, taking that course of action might be frowned upon in the human world…
However, the other things that occur in this so-called “human world” aren’t much less ridiculous. Two brothers were entering a McDonald’s Drive-Thru around 3:00 am when they spotted a woman and her three friends being assaulted. Playing heroes, the two of them rushed to help the women a few yards away. Once they had chased off the attackers and made sure no one had been seriously hurt, the two brothers walked back to their car. A few minutes later, one of the assault victims advanced upon them with yelling, punches, spitting….and her high-heeled shoe. According to True Crime Report, the woman had simply mistaken them for her attackers. Sadly, this resulted in 18 months in prison for her, and a permanent eye-patch for one of the men.

If you’re being tried for auto theft, the last thing you should do is give prosecutors the evidence they need to convict you and even though driving another stolen car to court isn’t inadmissible, it doesn’t help.

Society has become so impatient, that waiting for the microwave isn’t fast enough.
A Walgreens employee allegedly stabbed a co-worker in an argument over who could microwave her soup first, authorities said.
Both women wanted to use the microwave in the employee break room Wednesday afternoon, according to the Broward County Sheriff’s Office.
While they were fighting over who could use the microwave first, Mellesia Grant grabbed a large kitchen knife off the counter and stabbed Merloze Tilme in the abdomen, the sheriff’s office said.
Grant was arrested for aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and held on a $50,000 bond. No word on whether or not she was also fired.
