A Labor Union Is Upset That Goats Got Its Landscaping Jobs

A labor union in Kalamazoo, Michigan lost their landscaping jobs at Western Michigan University to a heard of goats – and they aren’t happy about it.

Earlier this summer, the school announced that goats from the rental company “Munchers On Hooves LLC” would be taking care of the lawn mowing at 15 woodland acres on the school's campus, leaving dozens of union members without a job.

The union has filed an official grievance accusing the school of deliberately taking away jobs of union members in an effort to save money.  Meanwhile, the school maintains that hiring the goats had nothing to do with money.

Instead, goats were chosen as an environmentally friendly way to maintain the wooded lands, and insists that no workers were displaced by the project.


A Woman Impersonated an Officer to Get Free Chick-fil-A

If Chick-fil-A ran a promotion to see who'd do the craziest thing for free food, this lady might win. 

A woman named Tara Solem went through a Chick-fil-A drive-thru in Marietta, Georgia last Wednesday, and tried to get a discount by claiming she was a FEDERAL AGENT.  Most Chick-fil-A's give cops and firefighters a discount if they're in uniform, but she was in plain clothes, so they said no.

So she parked her car, went inside and talked to two different managers, started swearing while KIDS were around, flashed a fake badge, and claimed she'd blow her cover and get KILLED if she put her uniform on.

They still wouldn't give her the discount though.  So she called the corporate office, said her name was "Agent Solem", and claimed she worked for the Georgia Bureau of Investigations.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigations eventually confirmed that she does NOT work for them, and she got arrested.  She's had to pay a $7,000 bond to get out of jail. Click here to see her mugshot.


An 11-Year-Old Stopped For Speeding Had Her Mom's Permission

Earlier this week, Texas police pulled over a Dodge Durango going 45 mph in a 35 mph zone and were shocked when they found out the driver was an 11-year-old girl ---- with her 10-year-old brother in the passenger seat!

So, the cops called the girl’s mother – and that’s when things got freaky.  Turns out that children had been at their aunt's house, and when it came time for them to go home, the aunt didn’t feel like driving them.  So, she asked their mother if the 11-year-old could just drive them home herself – and the mother agreed!

The length of the drive between their aunt's house and their home is about 3- miles. The girl told the cops that it wasn't the first time she'd driven, but it was her first time without adult supervision.

Their mother, Maria Lopez, was arrested and charged on two counts of child endangerment.
