Dear Mrs. Woolf,  Over the past six months, your husband has caused quite a commotion in our store. We cannot tolerate this behavior and have been forced to ban both of you from the store.

Our complaints against your husband, Mr. Woolf, are listed below and are “documented by our video surveillance cameras”:

1. June 15: He took 24 boxes of condoms and randomly put them in other people’s carts when they weren’t looking.

2. July 2: Set all the alarm clocks in Housewares to go off at 5- minute intervals.

3. July 7: He made a trail of tomato juice on the floor leading to the women’s restroom.

4. July 19: Walked up to an employee and told her in an official voice, ‘Code 3 in Housewares. Get on it right away’. This caused the employee to leave her assigned station and receive a reprimand from her Supervisor that in turn resulted in management getting involved causing management to lose time and costing the company money.

5. August 4: Went to the Service Desk and tried to reserve a bag of chips.

6. August 14: Moved a ‘CAUTION – WET FLOOR’ sign to a carpeted area.

7. August 15: Set up a tent in the camping department and told the children shoppers they could come in if they would bring pillows and blankets from the bedding department – to which twenty children obliged.

8. August 23: When a clerk asked if they could help him he began crying and screamed, ‘Why can’t you people just leave me alone?’ Emergency Medics were called.

9. September 4: Looked right into the security camera and used it as a mirror while he picked his nose.

10. September  10: While handling guns in the Sports department, he asked the clerk where the antidepressants were.

11. October 3: Darted around the Store suspiciously while loudly humming the ‘ Mission Impossible’ theme.

12. October 6: In the auto department, he practiced his ‘Madonna look’ by using different sizes of funnels.

13. October 18: Hid in a clothing rack and when people browsed through, yelled ‘PICK ME! PICK ME!’

14. October 22: When an announcement came over the loud speaker, he assumed the fetal position and screamed ‘OH NO! IT’S THOSE VOICES AGAIN!

15. Took a box of condoms to the checkout clerk and asked where the fitting room was.

And last, but not least:

16. October 23: Went into a fitting room, shut the door, waited awhile, and then yelled very loudly, ‘Hey! There’s no toilet paper in here.’

Oregon couple busted on drug charges after tipping their waitress in meth – D-Oh!

Via: Raw Story

1

Police in Oregon said they busted two suspected drug dealers after they tipped their waitress in methamphetamine.

The couple – 40-year-old Ryan Bensen and 37-year-old Erica Manley — had dinner and drinks Thursday at the ‘Twisted Sister’ Fish Steakhouse in Seaside, police said, and used a gift card to pay for a portion of their meal.

Then they slipped their server an envelope with a question mark scrawled on it, police said, and inside the waitress found crystal meth.

The waitress walked away from the table and called police, the manager said.

Bensen and Manley were still at the steakhouse when police arrived, and officer said they found more than 17 ounces of meth inside Manley’s purse.

“While I should be shocked and surprised, it’s just another example of how dumb these users and dealers are,” said Seaside Police Chief Robert Gross. “The whole thing almost made me chuckle.”

Police later executed a search warrant at a nearby Holiday Inn Express, where the couple had been staying, and found evidence that they’d been OPERATING a METH LAB THERE.

Benson, of Beaverton, was charged with possession and manufacturing of methamphetamine, and Manley, of Cascade Locks, was charged with possessing, delivering and manufacturing meth.

Thanks To Obamacare, OREGON Cut Its Unsinsured Population By 10 Percent Over The Past Two Weeks

1

Via: Think Progress

Over the past two weeks, Oregon has signed up so many low-income residents for health coverage that the state has cut its uninsured population by 10 percent, according to state health officials. The majority of those people are newly eligible for public insurance plans thanks to Obamacare’s expansion of the Medicaid program.

The Oregon Health Plan — which is what the state calls its Medicaid-funded program for poor residents — has enrolled 56,000 new people this month. State officials credit those high numbers to a fast-track enrollment system that allows people to easily sign up. More than 250,000 food stamp recipients in the state received a notice informing them that they’ve become eligible for the Oregon Health Plan, and explaining that they can either make a phone call or fill out a form in order to complete the enrollment process.

“This is tremendous news for the thousands of Oregonians anxious to get access to quality, affordable health care,” Gov. John Kitzhaber (D) said in a statement. “We still have a ways to go, but in reducing our uninsured rate by 10 percent in just two weeks, we’re showing what’s possible when a state is committed to fundamentally changing the health care system to provide better access, better health and lower costs.”

– Better Access

– Better Care

– LOWER COSTS

House raided after ‘heroin for sale’ fliers posted

Via: Nothing To Do With Arbroath

A north Portland (Oregon) house was raided by police after a fed-up neighbour sent officers a flier that said “Heroin for sale” and gave the home’s address. Portland police officers and the bureau’s Special Emergency Reaction Team served a search warrant on the home in the 3900 block of North Massachusetts on Tuesday. Officers who raided the home found a small meth lab, 19 grams of marijuana, 10 grams of heroin, 190 pills and $4,143 in cash, police say. They also seized a shotgun.

Police began looking into the home MORE THAN A YEAR AGO because of numerous neighbourhood complaints. At one point, an unidentified neighbour gave police the “Heroin for sale” flier, which also had the address and names of the suspected drug dealers. In addition, there were a number of public safety meetings where neighbors complained about the drug problem in their neighborhood, and they asked for something to be done, police say.

During the raid, there were seven adults and one 15-year-old in the home. Six of the adults were arrested on various charges: 59-year-old Joseph Baron, 58-year-old Shari Baron, 42-year-old Todd Christie, 36-year-old Suzanne Johnson, 34-year-old Barry Frost and 34-year-old Steven Davis. After police searched the house, neighbours came out to thank the officers.

Sgt. John Birkinbine, who leads the Neighborhood SLOW-Response Team for the area, says many of the officers were surprised at what happened after the suspects were arrested. “They were running out to our commander in the street and giving him hugs,” Birkinbine says.

He says the neighbours deserve most of the credit for getting the suspected drug house busted. (yeah, you think?)
