Woman Sues Red Lobster For Getting Her Too Drunk – Jason’s Pick

An 82-year-old woman is suing her local Red Lobster in Texas after she got so drunk that she fell in the parking lot, breaking both her hip and arm.

According to the lawsuit, Marlene Spencer had a 0.31 blood alcohol level when she left the seafood restaurant back in March – when she alleges the incident happened.

Spencer was admitted to the hospital.  And she stayed six days after having to  undergo a complete hip replacement, according to the lawsuit.

The suit claims that Spencer’s daughter had spoken with the management at Red Lobster several times about over serving her mother.

Teen Returns Wallet Found With $1,500 Inside – Kristen’s Pick (WINNER)

While passing out flyers for his uncle’s pest control business, 18-year-old Tyler Opdyke found a wallet in someone’s driveway. No one was around and the teen could’ve easily taken it and kept going, especially because it had $1,500 and a handful of credit cards inside.

But Tyler is an honest guy, so he knocked on the door to the home and when no one answered, he waved the wallet in front of the security camera on the porch and stuck it under the doormat. “I just really thought about what I would want someone to do if I were to drop my wallet,” Tyler says. “And then I thought about the house. I thought about the family who lived there."

When Melissa Vang saw the security camera video, she was surprised to find that her husband had dropped his wallet and shocked that someone would return it, with all the cash still inside. Later, Tyler stopped by the house again to make sure the wallet was still safe and that’s when Vang and her kids came out to hug their good samaritan for his good deed. And we can all feel a little better about the world knowing folks like this teen are out there.

Woman Charters Plane To Rescue 300 Animals In U.S. Virgin Islands – Producer JD’s Pick

Virginia Beach resident Sali Gear co-owns Island Dog Rescue, a nonprofit that specializes in saving dogs from the U.S. Virgin Islands, where she grew up. So after Hurricane Irma devastated the Caribbean Islands, she was planning to fly about 20 animals back to the mainland every day for a week.

But when Hurricane Maria became a threat to the islands, Gear only had two days to find a way to fly 300 cats and dogs up to get them out of danger. So she chartered a plane and brought them all at once from the islands and donors helped her pay the $112,000 to make it happen. Now these pets will be adopted and have a new life, thanks to her devotion and hard work.

“I did it because it had to be done,” she said before the animals arrived,” Gear explains. “People have moved heaven and earth to make this happen.”
