Antisocial Woman Pretends to Be Blind for 28 Years So She Wouldn’t Have to Greet People

28 years ago, Carmen Jiménez, from Madrid, Spain, became completely blind due to a serious eye injury. At least that’s what she told everyone, including her own family, because she was tired of having to say “hello” to people she didn’t actually want to greet. The 57-year-old woman recently revealed that she had always been able to see perfectly, which left her family in shock, even though they had always suspected that something was of about her condition. Her husband said she would put on her makeup perfectly, and sometimes would see her trying to look at the TV from the corner of her eyes. But what on Earth would poses anyone to fake blindness for nearly three decades? Carmen apparently did it to avoid having to greet and talk to people she didn’t actually like. “I was tired of meeting people on the street and stopping to say hello, I’ve never been very social person, and by pretending to be blind I was able to avoid many social responsibilities,” she said. Apart from having to explain to her family why she lied to them for so many years, and meeting the very people she was trying so hard to avoid, Carmen Jiménez is also facing legal problems, because having registered as a blind person, she has received special financial aid.

The crush of rush hour traffic can make motorists do wacky things

A woman pulled over recently by a Minnesota State Trooper for a suspected MnPass lane violation. The trooper walked up to the car and noticed there was a ‘baby on board’ sign in the back window of the vehicle. Turns out there was a baby… but it was fake. Yes, the driver had a baby seat , blankets, all the accessories in back, but the little one was a doll, as plastic as the day is long. The trooper saw the woman driving in the MnPass lane but did not spot the special transponder in her vehicle. After pulling her over he found the doll in the infant car seat, all wrapped up in a blanket as you would a real baby. The woman insisted the car seat belonged to her two-year-old, and that the toddler had wrapped the doll up and strapped her in. Problem was, the car seat was meant for an infant, and there was no way a two-year-old child would fit in it. The only conclusion the trooper could come to was that the motorist was attempting to subvert the car pool rules by using a doll disguised as a passenger. She was cited, and paid a $186 fine. (KHOU TV)

Ontario man given three tickets by ‘the smoke police’ for having a cigarette alone in his SUV

A 76-year-old man who has been smoking for 60 years in London, Ontario, Canada who enjoys a puff or two when he’s alone in his Porsche SUV, minding his own business and away from others keeps getting harrased by those he calls “the smoke police,” the Smoke-Free Ontario enforcement officers who he believes have placed a no-smoking sign as a target on his back. The provincial anti-smoking laws set out stringent rules banning smoking in enclosed workplaces, enclosed public places, outdoor patios and vehicles where children are passengers and other spaces to protect people from second-hand smoke. But Kraemer scored one for the Marlboro Man last week when he had three workplace smoking infractions dismissed at Provincial Offences Court. Kraemer was slapped with the charges last fall for lighting up inside his luxury SUV in a parking lot just after he’d bought a doughnut and coffee from a restaurant. The vehicle’s ownership is registered to Sparkles and the argument was it is a workplace vehicle although he said it is for his personal use. His defence lawyer successfully argued that the man wasn’t an employee, the SUV wasn’t a workplace where an employee might actually work and that “common sense” would dictate that he wasn’t breaking any smoking law. No vacuum, broom, dustpan, or work papers were found inside the vehicle and there was no distinctive Sparkles logo on the car with the rendering of a young woman with a dust mop that’s on the company’s fleet of white cars with green and yellow signage. The man isn’t even an employee, but he’s a shareholder who is paid with dividends from the business. The justice of the peace agreed that the tickets went a step too far.  (National Post)

 

Disgruntled man releases bedbugs in city office 

The city manager in Augusta, Maine, says the municipal office building had to be sprayed for bedbugs after a man threw a cup of the pests onto an office counter and about 100 of them scattered off. City Manager William Bridgeo said the man apparently complained Friday to the code enforcement office about bedbugs at his former apartment then left, but returned after he showed the cup of bugs to a manager at his new apartment and was told he couldn’t live there. Bridgeo says the man let the bugs loose in the General Assistance Office where he asked for a form to request assistance and apparently was told he didn’t qualify. Police didn’t immediately say if any charges would be filed. (Yahoo)
