When these troubled teenagers burgled this man he treated them with a kindness they had never experienced.

The old idiom says that crime doesn’t pay. More often than not, this rings true, as even those who escape punishment for one crime inevitably get cocky and wind up imprisoned for something else. But for two young boys in Adelaide, crime paid out big in a way they could never have expected. The victim of their crime was Michael Patrick Johnson, a 69-year-old former dock worker who lives in a retirement village on the Eastern side of Adelaide.

 

Sadly, Michael has no contact with his family these days, with a feud over money from four years ago still not having been resolved. With plenty of time on his hands, Mr Johnson spends most of his days catching up with his old workmates and tending to his garden, with his evenings dedicated to Bingo. In June of 2016, Michael inherited a good amount of money from a friend. He wasn’t short of money, in fact, Mr Johnson had a considerable nest egg saved up already. As soon as he got this money though, Michael immediately began making plans on how to spend his unexpected windfall.

 

The retirement village Michael (and his late friend) lived on had recently been subjected to a spate of burglaries and vandalism, so he decided to invest some of his funds in a community protection scheme to help himself and his neighbours. Michael spent several hours printing out the details of CCTV companies, security firms and other things related to his cause. His idea was to present his findings to the village’s security manager and take it from there. Michael’s plans were well received, as was his offer to pay for the whole thing too. By the time he got back from the meeting, it was 10pm. But when Mr Johnson’s front door swung open without needing the key, he immediately knew what had happened. His house had been ransacked, and among the burglars’ haul was his laptop on which Michael had photos and messages from family years ago.

Michael was crestfallen. There were gigabytes of old family photos stored on that laptop, and these often provided a source of comfort to Michael throughout these troubled family times. Mr Johnson reported the theft to the police, and they were astonished after he told them his incredible story. Rumours of Mr Johnson’s eventful day made their way to the local press, and this enabled him to put out a statement offering a reward for the safe return of the laptop or its contents. Mr Johnson immediately received messages from a litany of chancers, beggars and well-wishers, but nobody came forward with information about his laptop. After a few months had passed, Michael had given up all hope of ever seeing his old photos ever again. Then, on one balmy August night, he received a knock at the door. As soon as he answered he had a feeling he was about to learn the fate of his stolen laptop.

 

On Mr Johnson’s porch stood two young boys, no older than thirteen, one of whom was carrying a rucksack. Without saying a word, one of them opened his bag, took out Mr Johnson’s laptop and handed it to him. As soon as he did so, the boy revealed some devastating news. Not long after the theft, Mr Johnson’s laptop had been passed on to be resold by a third party. Before this could take place, the laptop had to be wiped. Every single file and photo Mr Johnson had collected over the years was irretrievably lost. The boys stood there with their heads sunk low. They knew what they’d done, and admitted they’d tried their hardest to retrieve the laptop and recover the files once they knew the full story. But their efforts were in vain.

Mr Johnson was obviously upset, but he saw how equally distressed the two boys were and invited them in to talk about their deeds. They admitted that they had been responsible for the criminal sprees around the area of late, but that Mr Johnson’s story had made them think about the consequences of their actions. They also both came from broken homes, with their stories of familial discord resonating deeply with Michael. Over the course of two hours the three struck up an unlikely rapport, and when the time came for them to leave, Mr Johnson offered them a deal. The two boys were to help Mr Johnson with his community protection scheme.

Since they were a pair of former burglars themselves, who better to help protect the village than them? They were tasked with assisting Mr Johnson in a range of tasks, including the installation of fencing, the organisation of neighbourhood watch patrols and the testing of security systems. In return, Mr Johnson would not reveal their names to the police or anyone. And on top of that, once the project had been successfully completed, Michael would reserve a chunk of his inheritance to pay for a scholarship for both boys at the University of Adelaide – if they managed to keep out of trouble, that is. So far, so good. As of October this year, Mr Johnson reports that the crime rate in his retirement village has dropped massively thanks to the expertise of the two young reprobates. And while Michael Patrick never did manage to retrieve those old photos from his laptop, he did end up salvaging something much more valuable; his relationship with his family.

People share horror stories about workers who got fired on their FIRST day

When you start a new job as a teacher, it’s best not to stand in the corner of the room “laughing at ghosts”.

That’s what one Canadian man did after flying out to teach in South Korea.

Unsurprisingly, he found his tenure quite dramatically short.

His boss explained: “I work as an English teacher in South Korea and, a couple years back, we fired a new teacher we had flown out from Canada on his first day because he kept laughing creepily while observing classes.

“During the dinner break he started chuckling to himself so our director asked him what was so funny. His response was that the ghosts around him were saying really funny things so he couldn’t help but laugh.

“He was told to go home after dinner and be out of his employer-provided housing within three days.”

Remarkably, this isn’t the most untoward story from this thread, in which employers, bosses and managers have come forward with some regrettable hires.

  • It was my first day in a managment position at a law firm and I needed to fire at least 3 people – ON MY FIRST DAY!

 

There was 2 new employees who weren’t doing so well, so they were my first choices, but my last selection was from a man who had been with the firm for 15 years! He had been there for so long and because of that, carried himself in a way that thought he couldn’t be messed with. He was lazy and arrogant and pretty obnoxious. I put him straight on a zero hour contract in the hope that he would resign – which he did – but not after he scratched every panel in my car – I was in tears!

 

  • I ran one of those calendar kiosks in my local mall as a second job for holiday money. Hiring was done by a temp agency located across the country, and the people sucked accordingly.

    “Two days after we opened, I was supposed to have a new guy to train. I got a call from him saying he’d been stabbed on the bus, and was in the hospital.

    I asked him which hospital, and he told me. I have a buddy who worked for the local police department, and I had him make a call for me.

    “No such person in the hospital, and no stabbings on any bus line. I called the number I had for him, and his dad answered.

    “I identified myself, and explained that I was letting his son go from the job he had blown off.

    “The dad was very polite, but as he hung up, I heard him screaming at his “useless f****** c***” son…”

  • I didn’t fire this guy personally but I did one better, I arrested him.

    “I’m a police officer in the UK, I was forced to help on a recruitment event in our headquarters where applicants turned up, listened to a talk and did a few exams.

    “Almost all wore suits or shirts and ties, except one… One was wearing a black polo shirt, black combat trousers and tactical boots, weird and a bad impression but whatever.

    “Whilst they do the exam I went into the yard for a smoke, all the applicants had to park in a certain area, which was just by the smoking shelter. One car stood out, it looked just like our unmarked cars, exactly like our unmarkeds. I was a little confused so I had a closer look at it. It had radiator lights and on the back seat was a police issue stab vest.

I thought that it must be one of our cars parked in the wrong place, it happens. After the exam they left, I watched them leave and lo and behold polo shirt man gets in the “unmarked car”.

“Immediately I jump in a real unmarked and take off after him. I found him two streets away putting blue lights on and driving through a red light.

“I overtook him, put my lights on and blocked him. He gets out waving a fake warrant card telling me he was en route to an emergency.

“Arrested for impersonating a police officer. He was also suspected of doing the same in about three other forces.”

  • My chef hired a guy who was less than a week out of prison for dealing. He was just going to wash dishes.

    “Seemed like an ok guy, just looking for some work because he had just done five-plus years.

    So, day one, he goes to head chef and asks: ‘Hey man, you know anybody here who wants to buy heroin?’

    “Out the door two hours into his first job, just out of the joint.”

  • Forty-something year-old woman came in smelling of alcohol in a toys store for her first day as a seasonal employee.

“She threw up on herself in between helping customers.”

  • Wasn’t a manager but we had a kid who came into the shop and his first day of night shift they couldn’t find him.

Well they found him after a few hours. He cleaned off a shelf in the parts room and was sleeping on it.”

Bankern vars ex-flickvän dumpade sin $ 55.000 Mercedes till en swimmingpool säger “om en kvinna inte är galen, älskar hon inte dig”

 

Bahamasbaserade bankir Guy Gentile bröt upp med den ryska modellen Kristina Kuchma över middagen på en restaurang under helgen – och hon fick verkligen sin hämnd.
Gentille, som driver en mäklare, berättade för New York Post att Kuchma körde sin Mercedes i bakgårdspoolen lördagen den 7 oktober – och det tog fyra timmar att fiska ut det.
När Business Insider frågade honom om händelsen sa han: “Jag måste acceptera något ansvar, om en kvinna inte är galen, älskar hon inte dig. Och jag måste ha kört henne galen för att hon har kört bilen i poolen! ”

År 2007 anklagades Gentile för ett påstått Wall Street “pump-and-dump” -system som innebär att försöka öka priset på aktier genom falska eller vilseledande rekommendationer. Han blev en FBI-informant för att slå anklagelserna.
Han bröt upp med 24-årig Kuchma under middagen på en restaurang efter att hon bad om $ 50,000 (£ 38,000) för att hjälpa till att starta ett marknadsföringsföretag. De hade varit tillsammans i ett och ett halvt år.
Efter att ha köpt henne en Gucci väska, en ny iPhone och Beats hörlurar som en födelsedagspresent trodde han att begäran “suddig linjerna” mellan affärer och romantik, berättade han för New York Post.
“Jag sa,” Du vet vad? Du har fel kille. Om du vill ha en kille som ska ge dig pengar för ingenting, har du fel kille, säger han enligt uppgift. Gentile hävdar att hon sedan kastade varmt grönt te i ansiktet och stormade med nycklarna till hans $ 55.000 Mercedes.

Kuchma textade sig Gentile i bruten engelska natten efter att ha kraschat bilen och sade: “Lier! Du sa till mig att du hjälper mig att starta ett företag! Det var dina ord! Nu vill du vara en investerare ??? Tja investerare Jag har en överraskning för dig på en bakgård, börja med den investeringsideen först. ”
Han sa att hans “hjärta sjönk på grund av [rädsla att hon var inne]. Jag bryr mig inte om bilen i det ögonblicket. Men när jag insåg att hon inte var där, började jag bli förbannad att hon skulle dra mig något så här efter allt jag har gjort för henne. ”
Han sa att han kom hem nästa morgon för att hitta sin Mercedes S400-hybrid i bakgårdspoolen.
“Jag dumpade henne. Hon dumpade min bil. ”
Polisen bekräftade Posten att en polisrapport gjordes, och Kuchma var den enda andra personen med tillgång till bilen, enligt Gentile. Hon avskedade att kommentera när den kontaktades av The New York Post.
“Jag älskade verkligen den här tjejen och skulle ha gifte henne, men hon gick för långt,” sade Gentile.

Shocking before and after photos of 15 NFL players who lost a ton of weight in retirement

Many former athletes struggle with weight gain after their playing careers end. This is especially true among football players.

Some players are luckier and actually lose a ton of weight. In many cases, the players are now nearly unrecognizable.

One common theme among many of these players is the position they played.

Most of the players on the following pages were offensive lineman, suggesting those players do more to push their body weight to an extreme, developing dangerous habits like consuming massive numbers of calories to maintain their playing sizes.

Brad Culpepper (No. 77) was a 275-pound defensive tackle for three different teams and retired after the 2000 season.

Woman Continues To Hilariously Recreate Celebrity Instagram Photos (15+ Pics)

Australian comedienne Celeste Barber is back with more hilarious celebrity Instagram photo parodies (previously here and here). Her ongoing series #CelesteChallengeAccepted doesn’t seem to be coming to an end, because celebrities keep uploading images with weird poses, questionable outfits and strange props.

Barber’s booming Instagram account has already reached 1.3M followers. “People are really supporting it – I didn’t really care for how it would be perceived, I just started it for my friends who I knew would love it. I continued it because people are telling me it is their daily laugh and they have started to challenge me,” Celeste told Daily Mail. Her down-to-earth reenactments remind people that it’s ok if you don’t have a six pack, can’t fit through the arms of a chair, or have to buy economy class plane tickets.

Girl Brilliantly Shuts Down Every Teacher, Classmate And Parent Who Ever Called Her Stupid

With the odds stacked against you and everyone bringing you down, giving up seems tempting. But not for Phoebe. This Australian has been going through a lot while chasing her academic dreams, and she refused to let them go, embracing every difficulty life threw at her.

“Unfortunately I was bullied relentlessly for years,” Phoebe writes. “I just try use it as motivation.” She was shamed for being “too stupid” and being diagnosed with Dyslexia (a reading disorder), Dyscalculia (a difficulty in understanding numbers), dysgraphia (a deficiency in the ability to write), and ADHD (problems paying attention) surely didn’t help either. “Sadly, due to the harassment at school, I was too nervous to ever put people on blast or stand up for myself.”

Today, however, she doesn’t have to. The results of her persistent hard work are speaking for themselves. But don’t take my word for it. Scroll down to read Phoebe’s inspiring story she wrote herself!

#1. The $40 strip of bacon.

What do you get a bacon lover who has everything? How about a 23-karat, gold-dusted strip of bacon, covered in rich dark chocolate. Baconery offers this unusual treat at a mere $39.99 a strip. You know you won’t buy just one.

If you have a few hundred dollar bills in your wallet you don’t know what to do with, try 666 Burger’s priciest creation: the Douche burger. The patty is made of Kobe beef and covered in gold leaf. The burger also features Gruyere cheese, a special BBQ sauce, rock salt from the Himalayas, caviar, foie gras, lobster, and truffles.

It may be a major faux pas to ask for ketchup or pickles.

#6. A $1,010 cupcake-worthy creation.

There’s dessert and then there’s the mother of all desserts. Bloomsbury’s Boutique Cupcakes in Dubai offers customers the “Golden Phoenix,” a treat that will set you back $1,010.

#9. The golden tea treat.

Tea lovers willing to try every flavour available may pause with this brew. The Singapore company, TWG, has released Yellow Gold Tea Buds with the tea buds painted in 24-karat gold. The taste is said to be a mixture of floral and metallic which will set drinkers back by $3,000 for 100 grams.

#10. The debt and cavity inducing dessert.

This New York confection from the famous Serendipity 3 restaurant won’t just leave you with extra calories.

#11. Drinking gold like the gods.

Wine is already a delicious, rich drink. Grande Cuvee is a Californian winery producing the fermented beverage mixed with gold leafs and 24-karat gold flakes. The sparkling wine bottle retails for an affordable $31.

#12. The most expensive cup of java.

Most people wont blink an eye when paying $5 or $6 for a hot cup of coffee in the morning. Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates serves a steaming cappuccino topped with gold flakes for only $25. You might have to borrow money for lunch.

#13. The best form of flattery is imitation.

For those wanting to serve caviar at their next dinner party can do it without the actual cured fish-eggs. Made with white wine, sugar, lemon, and 24-karat gold leaf, this edible imitation caviar is still a costly $200 jar.

#14. Pizza so expensive there might not be enough to tip the delivery guy.

Chef Domenico Crolla from Glasgow, Scotland made a pizza worthy of James Bond. His creation “Pizza Royale 007” is the most expensive Italian pie. The $4,200 concoction comes with toppings like champagne-soaked caviar, smoked salmon, and lobster marinated in Cognac. The final topping is 24-karat gold flakes.

#15. Upscale dessert delight.

Doughnuts might not be considered refined food. Nevertheless, when made with purple yam, Cristal Champagne jelly, and coated in 24-karat gold dust and flakes you may see this $100 dessert differently.

Couple Caught Doing It In Dominos May Be Jailed

Video footage of a couple having sex in a pizza delivery shop as staff worked on the other side of the counter has been shown to a court.

The CCTV footage of Daniella Hirst and Craig Smith was shown at Scarborough Magistrates Court, where the pair faced charges of outraging public decency.

Hirst, 29, pleaded guilty to the offence on Thursday and Smith, 31, was found guilty in his absence after a trial lasting barely 30 minutes.

The evidence in the trial consisted almost exclusively of the 18-minute long footage which showed the pair entering Domino’s Pizza in Castle Road, in the resort.

It showed them ordering food and messing around with a yellow cleaning cone, before Hirst performs oral sex on Smith.

After this, the couple have sex leaning on the counter close to the till.

Staff can be seen working in the kitchen as the couple continue their antics and delivery staff come and go during the footage.

Hirst, of Gypsey Road, Bridlington, sat at the back of the court with her hands over her eyes as the more explicit parts of the footage was shown.

Smith, of Field Road, Bridlington, was not in court. The magistrates were told he was in prison relating to other matters.
