If You See One of These Six Red Flags on a First Date, Run

The idea of love at first sight might be romantic. But sadly, first dates are usually more about weeding out the people who don’t deserve a SECOND date. So here are six red flags to keep an eye out for . . .

1. They badmouth their ex. If that’s how they talk about them, it’s probably how they’ll talk about you sooner or later.

2. They only talk about themselves. They might just be nervous. But if it’s an ongoing thing, they’re probably not worth it. And they almost definitely have a big ego.

3. They’re rude to the waiter. Best case scenario, they’re just nervous and want to impress you by making sure everything goes well. But chances are they’re just a jerk.

4. They drink too much. A couple drinks can loosen you up. And it’s not uncommon to drink a little too much when you’re nervous. But it’s never a good sign if they get fall-down DRUNK on your first date.

5. They admit they’ve “ghosted” on people before. That’s where you just stop talking to someone instead of breaking things off. If they’ve done it before, there’s a decent chance they’ll do it again. So just save yourself the heartache.

6. They seem bored. They might just be trying to play it cool. But if you get the impression they’re bored by YOU, don’t waste any more time on them.

A Woman Has Been Banned from Walmart for Riding a Motorized Shopping Cart While Drinking Wine Out of a Pringles Can

This lady may not be welcome at Walmart anymore, but she’s certainly welcome in MY life….hahaha just kidding btw!

The cops in Wichita Falls, Texas got a call on Friday morning from a Walmart about something, um, unique happening in their parking lot.

The employees said there was a woman who’d been driving one of their motorized shopping carts around the parking lot for at least two-and-a-half hours . . . and she was drinking WINE out of a PRINGLES CAN.

By the time the cops got there, the woman was gone . . . but they found her at a restaurant nearby.

She wasn’t arrested, but they did tell her the store was officially BANNING her.

Social Media Is Hunting for a Woman Who Left a Love Letter on an Airplane Barf Bag

This is one of those rare situations where social media actually IS useful . . . because it just might let us all know how this story turned out.

A woman was cleaning an airplane last year and found a message written on a BARF BAG.

It was signed by a 21-year-old named Andrea. And she said she’d just bought the flight last minute from Miami to D.C. to intercept her best friend while he had a layover there . . . so she could tell him she LOVES HIM.

And since she was going to Australia in four days for a semester abroad, it was her last chance. Why write about her mission on a barf bag? Quote, “my wifi doesn’t work . . . so this is me venting.”

So now, people on social media are trying to track down Andrea . . . to find out if she DID catch the guy between his flights to have her romantic comedy moment with him.

But so far, Andrea’s identity is still a mystery.

Ten Slang Terms You’ll Hear in 2019, and What They Mean

Someone put together a huge list of slang terms you might hear in 2019. They’re not all new, but here are ten you might not know yet . . .

1. “Tea.” Either spelled T-E-A, or just the letter T. It means “gossip.” So if you “spill tea” about someone, you’re talking behind their back.

2. “Beat.” It can be a verb or an adjective, and it’s about applying make-up. You might hear someone say, “I’ve gotta beat my face, because I’ve got a date tonight.”

3. “Snatched.” It means you look good. So if you “beat your face” and you show up to an event looking fabulous, you’re “snatched.”

4. “Basic.” That one’s been around a while, so you’ve probably heard it. Basically, anything mainstream is basic. Pumpkin spice lattes, a tattoo of a Chinese character, and having dinner at the Cheesecake Factory could all be described as “basic.”

5. “G.O.A.T.” It’s an acronym that stands for “greatest of all time.” So if one of your younger co-workers says, “you’re the goat,” they’re giving you a compliment.

6. “Extra.” It means over-the-top. But not necessarily in a good way. Like if someone accidentally bumps into you on the street and you key their car . . . the way you reacted was so “extra.”

7. “Gucci.” It basically just means good. So if you like something, “it’s Gucci.”

8. “Thirsty.” It means you desperately want approval, or desperately want to get with someone in an R-rated way.

9. “Keep it 100.” It means you’re authentic, like “keep it real.”

10. “Ratchet.” It’s normally used to describe someone who’s obnoxious, rude, or trashy. But it can also mean you’re “cool” now, in the right context.

A Bride Issues a Dress Code for Her Wedding, Based on People’s Weight

I’m not sure there’s anything that would make me RSVP “no” to a wedding faster than this.

There’s a woman who’s getting married in Hawaii next year, and she sent out a Facebook message to her guests . . . that found its way onto Reddit and is going viral.  Why?  Because she set a dress code for her guests . . . based on WEIGHT.

1.  Women under 160 pounds are supposed to wear a green velvet sweater, orange suede pants, Louboutin red-bottomed heels, and a Burberry scarf.

2.  Women over 160 are supposed to wear a black sweater, black pants, and black heels.

3.  Men under 200 pounds are supposed to wear a purple fuzzy jacket and all white sneakers.

4.  And men over 200 are supposed to wear all camouflage, with black sneakers.

Oh, and regardless of what they’re supposed to wear, quote, “We want you to invest in an outfit valued at at least $1,000.”

Anyway, word got back to the bride that her post was going viral, so now she says she’s planning to make all of the guests take a POLYGRAPH to figure out, quote, “the snitch who put me on blast.”  (Reddit

Netflix Paid Through the Nose to Keep “Friends”

There was CHAOS online earlier this week, when someone noticed that “Friends” was due to leave Netflix at the start of the New Year.

Netflix quickly assured subscribers that the show would be around through 2019.  But as we’re finding out now, they had to seriously shell out to make that happen.

The “New York Times” claims that Netflix paid $100 MILLION to keep the show for another year.  Other estimates have it around $70 million to $80 million.

Either way, it’s a huge jump.  Netflix had been paying $30 million a year for “Friends”.

Today Is the Loneliest Day of the Year

Bad news and good news for you. The bad news: Between the cold, the dark, and the holiday stress, you probably feel pretty ALONE and MISERABLE today. The good news: Um . . . other people are just as miserable?

According to a new study, TODAY is the loneliest day of the year.

And the three main reasons are: It’s dark outside . . . the weather is awful . . . and people are struggling to budget for Christmas.

The Top Ten Things We Do Before Holiday Guests Arrive

If you’re hosting Thanksgiving and letting people stay with you, a new survey looked at how we prepare for holiday guests.  And it found the average person needs about three hours to clean and get their home looking good.

So don’t wait until Thursday morning, or you’ll be too busy cooking. According to the survey, here are the top ten things we do to prepare for holiday guests . . .

 

1.  Clean your house.  85% of us try to do it before we have guests.

2.  Have plenty of food options, 69%.  Which might include a grocery store trip.

3.  Declutter, 58%.  So instead of just cleaning, you might look around the house and find stuff to put in storage or throw away.

4.  Restock some extra toilet paper in the bathroom, 54%.  The survey also found that EXPENSIVE toilet paper is one of the top things that can “impress” your guests.

5.  Light some scented candles, 47%.

6.  Bake something, like cookies or a pie, 45%.

7.  Get your laundry done, 43%.  (Or like me, just toss your dirty stuff in the closet.)

8.  Brew some fresh coffee, 38%.  Especially the first morning they’re there.

9.  Put out fresh flowers, 27%.

10.  Do a last-minute home improvement project, 24%.  That might just be something small, like fixing a loose doorknob, or changing a light bulb.
