TGIF. No, Really.

Think you’ve had a bad week? It could have been worse. Check out what happened to these guys (and gals)…

At the Jersey Shore, an unnamed man was trying to take a scenic picture of his SUV at – well, the Jersey Shore. Except he got a little too close to – or should we say far from – the Jersey Shore. And yes, we have video!

In Plaistow, New Hampshire, Bernardo Calana, 53, was in need of an air conditioner… or two… so he drove down to the local Home Depot… pulled on an employee apron… and helped himself… But he should have perhaps paid more attention to the name tag on the apron…

In Shanghai, China, a 19-year-old man surnamed Li was fired from his job at a factory… so he showed up at an ATM at a local bank around 1:00 a.m…. He apparently was looking to take out his misfortune on someone – or, in this case, something – else… So, Li takes a black marker to color over the lens of the camera… then, he takes out a hammer from his bag and starts smashing the ATM… and then he pulls out a small container of lighter fluid… and squirts it on the ATM… and then lights it… At this point Li seems to regret his actions… and tries blowing out the flames… but, when that fails, he reaches for… well, another means of dousing the flames… And yes, we do have video

In Ramsgate, UK, Colin Ayers, 28, and his colleague Mervin Chong, broke into the Cuttings Jewelers and Pawnbrokers shop here… The pair had apparently planned with meticulous detail a smash-and-grab raid on the jewelers… After taking pictures of their proposed target (expensive watches), the pair then wrapped themselves in dark coats, masks, balaclavas and hoodies… They then carefully got into, er, onto, their getaway vehicle… their trusty moped… only to discover that, with all their layers of disguise, they couldn’t don crash helmets… Undeterred, the pair drove on… Colin put a pick axe between his legs and began circling the jewelers… but the pair were so conspicuous (their heads and faces were completely covered – other than eye-slits) that four shoppers dialed 999 (British 911)… This all before they entered the store… and then, just as they were poised to make their move, police swooped in… spooking Colin, who proceeded to steer the moped into a lamppost… The pair then attempted to get away on foot… only to… well…

And finally, in Taunton, Massachusetts, Amy Rebello-McCarthy, 39, after a morning of inebriation (apparently) crashed her 1999 Mercedes C280 through not one, not two, not three, but six mailboxes before coming to an abrupt stop in a grove of trees… Amy, apparently feeling no pain (and having no injuries) got out of the vehicle and started laughing… at which point her (unnamed) male passenger jumped out, jumped behind the wheel, and attempted to get the car out of the yard and back on the road… a maneuver that police said might have been possible “if all four tires hadn’t been flattened in the crash, if all the airbags hadn’t deployed and both bumpers hadn’t been ripped off”… but, having failed at that endeavor, the unnamed passenger (unnamed because he told police he was unable to remember his name) stepped out of the car… and lit up a cigarette… with “no regard” for the gasoline leaking from the vehicle he was standing next to… nor, apparently, for the butt of a semi-automatic weapon police spotted tucked in his waistband (which later turned out to be a replica)… But back to Amy, who was “slurring her words and at times drooling”… and who, as it turned out, had one more surprise to share with the arresting officers…

Have a great weekend, folks!
