Or, if you’re this Chinese woman traveling in Hong Kong, you just lie down on the ground and shout at anyone and everyone who will listen until the police carry you away.
The scorned woman apparently received a text message from her boyfriend of several years with the news that it just wasn’t working out, and instead of confronting the reality of her ex kind of being a jerk and moving on with her life, she instead decided to just shut down completely, sprawling out on the ground in the middle of Hong Kong’s Tsim Sha Tsui disctrict, a major tourist hub famous for its shopping and nightlife.
She reportedly spent the next hour or more shouting nonsense at passersby, many of whom unfortunately possessed camera-equipped phones with which to record the poor woman’s meltdown, eventually landing the lady a spot on the Chinese news broadcasts, where her breakdown was treated as a sideshow not unlike a video of a pet doing something ridiculous… Read the rest of this entry »

Upstate New York – A 21-year-old driver slammed into a herd of cattle crossing the road near a farm in the town of Wawayanda. Witnesses claimed the female behind the wheel was texting and driving at the time of impact but the she claims she was simply looking down to check an incoming call.
Mike Hosking, owner of the farm, said “If you don’t see 50 cows in the road, you’re doing something (you shouldn’t be doing),” according to the Times Herald-Record.
Cows Against Texting While Driving
When all was said and done, the driver struck about a half dozen cows, one of which was sent five feet in the air. She also nearly hit one of the farm hands who was signaling her to stop. 3 of the cows were seriously injured and required emergency surgery. Only two are expected to survive.
Hosking said he’ll be monitoring the injured cows closely in the days ahead.
