“The landlord said it was a government incentive to save water, but then why does he get to collect the money? People like him need to be exposed,” the tenants wrote on Reddit.

By: Chan Yuan WorldWideWeirdNews.com

An Uber driver is suing his passenger and his bosses after the customer took the wheels of his car and led police on a high speed chase.

43-year-old Corey Robinson, who worked as a part time Uber driver and a part time plumber, was hired to drive a man from
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to the Bronx in New York City.

During the trip, Robinson became tired and asked his passenger, 20-year-old Juan Carlos, who does not have a driver’s license, to drive.

At about 5:30 a.m., Robinson took a nap in the back seat of the car, while Carlos drove the vehicle.

According to the lawsuit, New York State Troopers spotted Robinson’s 2016 Hyundai Sonata going 86 miles per hour in a 65 mph zone.

The officers tried to pull over the vehicle, but Carlos sped off and he refused to stop.

Robinson awoke to the commotion and when he realized what was happening, he ordered Carlos to pull over, but he refused.

Carlos eventually lost control of the car and crashed into a guardrail, and the vehicle was totaled.

Carlos was arrested for driving without a license along with several traffic violations, including unlawfully fleeing a police officer.

In his lawsuit, which was filed in the Bronx Supreme Court, Robinson said that when Carlos agreed to take the wheel, he effectively became a “servant or agent” of Uber, and therefore, they are also responsible to pay for the damages.

Robinson is seeking an unspecified amount in damages.

A man who had been deported from the United States a whopping 19 times, came back again and this time he raped a girl.

U.S. Republican senators are demanding that the Department of Homeland Security hand over immigration records for 38-year-old Tomas Martinez-Maldonado.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) declined to discuss the specific of the case involving Maldonado, beyond its statement that he was forcefully deported from the United states 10 times and he was voluntarily removed from the U.S. another 9 times since 2003.

Maldonado was arrested again. This time, he is accused of raping a 13-year-old girl on a Greyhound bus that traveled through Kansas, where the crime was committed.

Immigration attorney David Trevino, who is representing the suspect, said that most of Maldonado's family lives in Mexico, but he also has family in the United States. His family is “devastated” over the accusations, Trevino said.

An IVF clinic announced that it had a mix-up in its center.

The IVF clinic in the Netherlands, announced that it is investigating how a mix up may have led to the eggs of 26 women to be fertilized by the sperm of the wrong man.

The University Medical Centre (UMC) in Utrecht, said that a “procedural error” was to blame.

Sadly, they did not catch the error until half of the women who have undergone fertility treatments have become pregnant or have already given birth to their babies.

The error occurred between April 2015 and November 2016.

In a statement, the center explained that during fertilization, the sperm cells from one man may have ended up with the egg cells of 26 other women.

“There is a chance that the egg cells have been fertilized by sperm other than that of the intended father,” they said.

“For some of the 26 couples, frozen embryos are still available, but the possibility remains that they too have been fertilized by the sperm of a man other than the intended father," the UMC added.

The affected families will have to take DNA tests to determine if their eggs were compromised.

37-year-old man is angry after being banned from Starbucks for asking 16-year-old barista on date

A man is asking the public to call Starbucks to reverse their decision of banning him from their restaurant.

The 37-year-old man in Washington, who did not want to identify himself because he was not charged with a crime, took to Facebook to vent his frustration.

“I was flirting with a barista. For some reason, she thought I was funny, said I was funny. So I gave her a note to see if she would be interested in dinner,” the man wrote on Facebook.

He said that the next day when he returned to Starbucks, a Spokane police officer came over and informed him that he was banned from the location.

Spokane police said that businesses are legally allowed to refuse service to anyone who is causing trouble or being disruptive for as long as they want.

The manager apparently found the note to be “creepy.”

However, the 37-year-old man said that he is being discriminated against because of his age.

“I know the female Starbucks barista was of legal age to date. I broke no laws. I merely took a chance with my heart. I'm tired of hearing the word ‘creep’ as any black person or gay person is tired of hearing certain words. I have a whole web page dedicated to age gap love,” he wrote on Facebook.

He asked people on Facebook to contact Starbucks and to boycott the chain until he is welcomed back there.

However, many people complimented Starbucks on their Facebook page for supporting and protecting their employees.

“We have no tolerance for any such inappropriate behavior or harassment, and we will continue to support our store partners and local authorities investigating the situation,” a Starbucks spokesperson said.

Danica Hendricks wrote: “I have never been so proud to be a Starbucks customer! As a teen I had to deal with similar issues working in a restaurant as a hostess. It is an uncomfortable position, and no girl wants to be in it. Thank you so much for supporting your employees.”

Chloe Taylor wrote: “5 stars for protecting your employees! I can't tell you, as a person stalked by a ‘challenged’ person, how strongly I feel about this, and how it made me weep at the company's willingness to step in and protect! This man's thinking is way out of line. A 16 year old is not an adult no matter what he thinks!

“I am so very thankful,” Yumi replied.

Otou then told his wife that after this, he wants to talk more. “I hope we can work together,” he added.

Otou reportedly later admitted that he “was kind of jealous of the attention the children were getting.”

Easy Ways To Keep Your Home Clean And Organized

Messy room (illustration)
By: Michelle Parker WorldWideWeirdNews.com

When a home is clean and organized, we are less stressed and it feels more welcoming.

Here are simple tips that will help keep your home clean and organized.

Place a laundry basket in each bedroom.

Many children and especially teenagers, don’t take the time to place their dirty laundry in the basket because they are too tired or lazy to walk to the laundry room.

By placing a laundry basket in each room, you will eliminate this problem.

When you are ready to wash the laundry, you can just grab the full basket rather than collecting clothes from the floor.

This will also help keep the room clean and organized throughout the week.

Each morning, make all beds in the home. This will take only a few minutes, but it will make a very big difference to the appearance of the rooms.

Take a few minutes to make the beds before you rush out to work. It always feels better to come home from work to a clean home.

Close all closet and cabinet doors. Although this seems like a simple thing, it will make the entire room look so much more organized.

Try it, walk into your kitchen and open a few cabinets, then take a step back. Suddenly, the room looks so much more chaotic and cluttered.

Close the cabinet doors and watch the room look much more clean.

Sweep the floors in your bedrooms a few times a week. Sweep the kitchen and other high trafficked areas a few times a day.

Keeping the floors clean will help you keep the house looking much more neat.

Keep counters clear. Don’t leave appliances out. When you have things on the counter, the entire kitchen looks more cluttered.

Put away items as soon as you are done using them. This is especially important after cooking and when changing clothes.

It takes only a few minutes to put one item away or to hang up one piece of clothing, but it can take hours to reorganize once things have piled up.
