Story: Chick I went to school with is super responsibile, doesn't work because her son needs her at home for various reasons. She lost a kid to SIDS, about a year ago. When her child was asleep (6ish months old?), she took a shower. She came out and, well, had to call the ambulance. Her husband works a job that surely cannot be TOO much more than minimum wage. She doesn't complain about her lot in life but has mentioned how useful a Kindle e-reader would be because she is legally blind.
I am in circumstances where $59 isn't TOO much of a blow on an almost stranger (haven't even seen her in 15+ years). I do have her address. Should I get her that Kindle e-reader or just move on?
Or should I buy myself an HD Fire and send her my 1st gen Fire?
what's the last 'crazy story' you heard, or the last crazy thing that happened to you/last thing that made you go "wow that's nuts!"
I met up with a friend today for lunch and she told me that a few days ago, she and her boyfriend were walking back to her apartment at night and they saw someone who was sitting idle in a car throw trash out the window. she quietly made a snarky comment to herself and they both chuckled. the couple in the car apparently heard them and told them to 'mind their fucking business' and called her boyfriend a faggot. he got really offended and tried to confront them about it verbally. the couple got out the car and the guy in the car tried to beat him up, then the lady took a knife or some other sharp object and when he was on the floor she just started slicing him up. my friend quickly pulled her off of him (this all happened very quickly) and only a few minutes later did they realize that he had a huge gash in his neck and smaller ones on his face. at the hospital later that night, the ER doctor said if the cut on his neck had been just a hair deeper or lower, she'd have hit an artery and he would have very likely bled out into the street and died.
