One woman who lost her arm to an accident has kept her humor and began to make fun of herself to cope with the situation – and this has led to her going viral after she posted a rather catchy and hilarious bio on dating app Tinder.
According to BuzzFeed News, 21-year-old Lauren lost her arm to a moped accident.
“I was going pretty fast on a moped and lost control of it, and I hit the median in the road. I flew off and hit a sign and it sliced my arm off. I stayed conscious the whole time,” Lauren revealed.
“I remember I asked the cop, ‘Hey, am I gonna die?’ and he said, ‘No, you’ll be fine.’”
Life was certainly hard after she lost her arm but the young lady tried to cope as best as she could not just by accepting the situation but by making jokes out of it.
“For a while, I wasn’t okay with the jokes. But then I started telling the jokes, and it’s kind of helped,” she revealed.
She would begin posting hilarious jokes, often coupled with matching photos of her one-armed self. Soon enough, strangers began to message her, telling her that she has become their inspiration to deal with their own injuries.
Last week, she got a little drunk and posted a bio on Tinder. Though she couldn’t exactly recall doing it as she was drunk, the young lady admitted that it was most likely she who did it.
The cheeky bio got netizens laughing but they also adored her courage and loved her humor! After all, a lot of people feel uncomfortable and somewhat ashamed or embarrassed about their injuries and disabilities yet here comes one sassy lady who can easily make fun of hers…

Teen Taking A Selfie Left Severely Injured By Train That Rushed Past Behind Her
It has long been established that selfies can be dangerous. Especially if you become addicted to it that you forget to be careful about your surroundings, in your attempts to shoot the perfect selfie.
May we remind you about the most dangerous selfies that have been posted? Or do you want to read about the man who lost his life because he wanted a selfie with a walrus? Or what about the guy who accidentally killed himself because he wanted a selfie with an unpinned grenade? See, the list is endless.
Adding to that list is this young woman from Indonesia who were taking photos with her friends near the train tracks in Purworejo on December 6.
Ely Hayati, 16, and her friends stopped by the railway track while they were having a stroll along it. They decided to take a selfie, with the girl in front holding a selfie stick when a train rushes past behind them.
Not mindful of the possible danger, the teen was thrown forward for a few meters from where she was by the force of the train. Causing her to bump her head into the concrete slab.
She suffered heavy bleeding and her friends immediately asked for help from the residents around the area.
Hayati was quickly rushed to the hospital where she underwent an emergency surgery in order to stop her bleeding.
Although she is still in the ICU, World of Buzz, it is lucky that she survived the incident and nothing more tragic happened to the girl from South China who decided to take a selfie with an upcoming train who seconds later, eventually killed her on the stop.
The girls managed to take photos of the incident, one while Hayati was still upright and another one where she was already down and have probably already hit her head.
May this incident serve as a warning to those who are taking their selfies. Remember that no matter how “cool” your selfie is, it won’t matter much if you are not alive and well.
Grab Driver Defies Traffic Rules So He Can Bring His Rider To The Hospital On Time
We have heard incredible stories where taxi, Grab and Uber drivers are being good samaritans.
Recently, another Grab driver is earning praise as he defied all traffic rules and all odds, as you may, just so he can bring his rider to St. Lukes Hospital in BGC.
In a Facebook post of Andrea Venice Yuson that PhilStar shared, she recalled how the Grab driver that she and her mom rode on the way to the hospital was nice enough to speed up and defy traffic lights, just so he can bring his rider to the hospital on time.
She posted how the driver did everything he could when he found out that Yuson’s mom was not feeling well.
“Pag akyat sa Market Market, talagang binubusinahan niya lahay ng nasa harap niya kahit naka stop traffic light.”
The driver blew his horn so that the other vehicles will give way to them and know that it is an emergency.
“Bandang BGC na kami busina padin siya ng busina binuksan niya yung bintana niya sinesenyasan niya yung mga gusto pang mauna kesa sakanya tas nagagalit siya di kami makadaan kasi sabe niya ’emergency nga e'”
Yuson also shared how the driver seemed affected and nervous, he even looked back at the mom and asked if she is still ok.
“Kita sa mukha niya nagagalit, nagaalala, sabay sabing, ‘pinagpapawisan ako, kaya niyo pa ba ma’am?'”
When they reached the traffic light, the driver beat the red light and also told the other driver that was trying to go ahead that this is an emergency.
“Binreak niya yung traffic light, e may dadaan kasi naka-go yung isa, sabi niya ‘sige mahuli ka emergency nga to eh, wala akong pakielam sainyo kahit magaway pa tayo.”
Because of the driver’s efforts, they were able to reach the hospital and Yuson’s mom was taken care of. When she tried to pay the driver, he refused and said that she should just take care of her mom.
“Unahin mo muna mama mo, tulungan mo muna siya.”
In the end, even when her mom told her to run after the driver so she can pay, the driver still did not accept the payment.
She also gave an update that her mom will be brought to the ICU for her Dengue Hemorrhagic condition.

64 Year-Old Man Earns Praise For Still Working As A Jollibee Crew In HK Despite His Age
In the Philippines, most of us are raised to be family oriented. Most of the time, when the parents of a household is already 60 or older, their kids usually let them stay at home and then take care of the bills and expenses.
On the other hand, there are parents that we can’t help but admire for working hard to be able to provide for their family even when they are already old.
More so when they are working abroad and are sacrificing the hardship of being far from their family. This is the story that one netizen who is working in Hong Kong shared.
Facebook User, Amelou Saqueza shared photos of her and an old man who appears to still be a Jollibee crew despite his age.
Saqueza’s post confirmed it that the old man, whom she said was called Tatay Tony was indeed a Jollibee crew in Hong Kong where she is currently working.
Tatay Tony has been working in Hong Kong for 28 years already and is now assigned in Jollibee Mongkok.
Saqueza expressed her pride and respect to the people who are still working for their family despite their age.
She also mentioned that in Hong Kong there is no age discrimination. Tatay Tony shared to her that there are some that are still working in Hong Kong even if they are already 74 years old.
Comments on her post confirmed that senior citizens are indeed helped by most Asian countries so they can still work if they still want to.
Posts like this bring out the pride and respect that we have for OFWs who are working hard far from their families.
What is age discrimination
In some countries, people are forced to resign from their work when they reach a certain age (commonly 60 years old) even if they are still strong enough to work.
Some companies also prefer younger workers even if the older one is more established and qualified.
