Chick Fil A is known for their customer service - but this is truly above and beyond! One employee, upon realizing a customer drove off without his food, ran the guy's car down in traffic to deliver it! Check it out...


A Chick-fil-A employee’s act of kindness has gone viral after he was filmed chasing a customer down after she left without getting her full order. Jared Wilson, 19, was working at a Midlothian, Virginia location when he realized one of the chicken sandwiches the customer paid for was left out of her order.

"I knew I could probably catch the customer, so I figured I might as well give it a shot," Wilson says. And he was right. The energetic worker caught up to the customer’s car before she drove off with an incomplete order.

The video of Wilson’s sprint to save the day were shared on social media, where it didn’t take long for him to become a viral sensation. Twitter users compared him to Forest Gump and some went as far as to call him a “true American hero.” But Wilson says he was just doing “what we’re expected to do” as Chick-fil-A employees.

This is funny...but also a little sad. The little girl here REALLY believe her wet, pruny hands are a sign she's getting old!

And this little one just can't quite get the pronunciation of tomato right...




WHAT IS YOUR DOG TRYING TO TELL YOU?


Researchers from the University of Salford in England have been attempting to figure out what dogs are trying to tell us with their behaviors. They’ve identified some 47 different potential gestures dogs use in an attempt to communicate, and claim to have “translated” 19 of them. Surprisingly, not all of them are “feed me”. Their results have been published in the science journal Animal Cognition (* And also on the website Duh.com.)

Feed me:– Using its snout and head to move your hand on to its body

– Holding one paw in the air while sitting

– Turning its head from side-to-side, looking between a human and another object

– Standing on its hind legs

– Using its mouth to throw a toy forward

Scratch me

:– Rolling over in front of you

– Pressing its nose against you or another object

– Licking you or an object

– Lifting a paw and placing it on you

– Gently biting your arm

– Short shuffles along the ground while rolling over

– Lifting a back leg while laying on its side

– Rubbing its head against you while leaning against you

Play with me

:– Briefly touching a person with a single paw

– Diving headfirst under a person or object

– Reaching a paw towards an object of interest

– Wiggling its body underneath a person or object

Open the door for me

:– Lifting both paws off the ground and placing them on its owner or a nearby object

– Jumping up and down, either on to an object or not, while in the same location


Jimmy Carter Helps Bring Doctor To Town Without One


 Plains, Georgia’s most famous resident has helped bring a much-needed clinic to the town.  


Former President Jimmy Carter was born in Plains, Georgia and lives there today, but the small southern town had no practicing physician. So he’s been working with Mercer University School of Medicine on changing that and thanks to his efforts, they’re opening a primary clinic in town next month.

Dr. Jean Sumner, dean of the school, says Carter called the university’s president and explained the need for health care in town. She says he was “very involved” and that “he opened the door” for the clinic, which will have a nurse practitioner and a doctor and will help train Mercer medical students.

“Mercer is committed to rural health,’’ Sumner says. “Southwest and southeast Georgia have few health care resources. Rural communities deserve quality care.’’

Comfy Or Creepy? Amazon Is Bringing Alexa To Hotels This Summer


Alexa for Hospitality is going to assist you with everything you need on vacation


  • Amazon is partnering with Marriott to bring customers Alexa
  • Alexa for Hospitality is headed to the chain this summer
  • It’ll be able to give key guest info like pool hours or set up requests for services
  • Smart services include iHeart Radio, and control of the TV and thermostat.

Amazon’s virtual assistant is coming to hotels this summer. The tech giant has announced that Marriott will be their launch partner in Alexa for Hospitality. Starting this summer, Alexa will be at your service at all of the hotels under Marriott’s umbrella.

That means key info like checkout times, pool hours, and breakfast hours will be just an “Alexa” away. You’ll also be able to contact housekeeping, make spa appointments, get room service…whatever amenities they have. Alexa will even be customized by every hotel so that it can be used as a smart home feature to control lights and the TV and more.

But that's not all. You'll be able to access your iHeart Radio app, some third party apps, and TED Talks. Amazon also plans to expand the service to vacation rental companies, too. And PS? If you try and pack it with those hotel towel and robes you're swiping, they’ll get an alert…so leave it behind!

Thought Starters…

  • I've heard about the stuff Alexa has "accidentally recorded"...you REALLY want to risk that when you're getting your vacation swirl on?
  • What's the one vacation "thing" you can't live without?
  • Vacation nightmare stories...everyone has one. Like when I was with my sweetie...and we had to listen to the people on the other side of the wall...ALL. NIGHT. LONG! What's yours?

Guy Does Insane Front Flip Over A Car


Kid Calls Cops When Parents Serve Him A Salad


Kid calls Royal Canadian Mounted Police over the salad...and then again because they didn't respond quickly enough.


  • A Canadian tween’s parents had salad for dinner last week
  • They didn’t listen to his objections so he called police…twice
  • The RCMP finally arrived and educated the kid on proper 911 usage

Sometimes it’s good to have a nice healthy salad with dinner. When a boy in Canada protested, his parents said “no.” Wanting his own way, he called for help… dialing 911. Yes, the tween dialed the Royal Canadian Mounted Police emergency line over being served a salad.

Not thinking the RCMP were moving fast enough he called a second time. When the officers got to the house at around 10pm, they had a little chat with the kid about proper 911 usage. The parents, by the way, were not happy at all.

Considering fines for abusing 911 can run close to $700, he and his parents are lucky.

Thought Starters…

  • We want to know thing...what kind of salad was it?
  • What would you do if your kid called 911 for not getting what he wanted?
  • What food have or you child had a meltdown over being forced to eat?
