When Tong Santos had a minor accident involving a motorcycle hitting the back of his Toyota Fortuner, he took it to the dealership at Toyota Fairview in Quezon City, Metro Manila for repair. He was shocked to discover that the vehicle was later used for driving practice by some staff!
According to Santos, he was told by the service center that repairs on the vehicle would take around 3 days but 2 weeks later, the vehicle was still not repaired. When he returned to the service center, he noticed that there were scratches in his SUV that weren’t there before.
Like many car owners, Santos knows almost every detail regarding his car; thus, he knew that the scratches on the vehicle were not there when he brought the vehicle for minor repairs.
Confronting the staff about the scratches, he was told that they would include these in the repairs. But when the service center could still not return him the car in good condition, he once again went back to check it – only to discover that the gas tank was no longer full.
Because he remembers taking the SUV to the service center with a full tank, he decided to check on the dashcam and was shocked to discover that the vehicle was greatly abused. The dashcam recorded how the staff turned on the radio and air conditioning while repainting the vehicle.
But what’s really worse is that it was used for driving practice by some of the staff. Judging by the conversation and the video recorded by the dashcam, the service center staff did not even take care of the vehicle while they used it to practice driving!
An angry Santos complained about this and shared the video on Facebook. Toyota Motor Philippines issued an apology over the issue and conducted an investigation. They were also offered a replacement but the terms were unfair, claims Santos, because they were asked to take a loan to still pay for the replacement vehicle!

What is a Dashcam?
Dashcam is the term used for dashboard camera, a special type of camera used on board vehicles. This camera is designed to record videos each time the vehicle is in motion.

Traveler Gets Arrested for Wearing Too Many Clothes, Gets Refused on Plane Twice
One traveler who tried to cheat the airline by wearing many layers of clothing to allegedly keep him from paying excess baggage charges was refused boarding by an airline. He was arrested, then, refused boarding by the next flight he booked the following day! Ouch.
Ryan Carney Williams, who uses the handle Ryan Hawaii on Twitter, took to social media to express his disappointment after British Airways refused to let him board the plane after he put on the clothes that wouldn’t fit within his check-in baggage in a flight from Iceland to England.
Cops were soon called to arrest Williams after he put on eight pairs of pants and ten shirts. He accused the airline of racial profiling, saying he had done nothing wrong except put on the clothes that were in excess of his baggage allowance. He further claims he wasn’t trying to cheat the airline but just couldn’t afford to pay for the excess.
He also claimed he had been polite throughout the incident but the airline’s ground crew had called the cops on him for ‘unruly behavior’.
According to Williams, the cops arrested him at Iceland Keflavík International Airport, sprayed him with mace, and held him on the ground despite him staying polite and just refusing to leave the counter – but why would he leave the counter, anyway, when he was actually trying to get into the flight?
He was brought to the police station where he formally gave his report. The plane flew without him.
After missing the flight over the incident, Williams booked one with EasyJet the following day but though he was able to go through check-in and security without problems this time, he was refused boarding at the flight gate – again!
He was told that he was not allowed on board because of the previous day’s incident with British Airways. Ironically, though, his luggage was able to fly ahead as it had already been checked in at that flight.
It angered Williams to be stuck in Iceland with no money – and no more luggage! He took to Twitter to express his frustration. Fortunately, while reactions varied from netizens, he did receive a refund from both airlines.
He was later able to finally fly to England on a Norwegian airline. Whew.

Man From Taiwan Earns $2700 A Month Just For Cleaning A House And Brushing A Turtle
Being a housekeeper is a noble job. They help us to our day-to-day lives, without them, people can’t go through to their busy schedules.
However, much as we benefit from their service, it’s common knowledge that housekeeper doesn’t earn much despite their heavy loads of work, but not this Taiwanese housekeeper.
Recently, a Taiwanese guy named Lee became viral after he was learned to have earned TW$80,000 (approx. US $2714) salary each month for being a housekeeper.
Lee was once an employee at a restaurant who only earned TW$30,000 (approx. US $1017) per month. But one day, he decided to switch career and become a full-time housekeeper, and guess what, it turned out to be the best decision he ever made in his life!
“Many families in Taiwan have dual incomes. Since both the husband and wife need to head out to work, they have no time to take care of their home. This is where housekeepers like us come in to help sort things out,”
Aside from his main job which includes cleaning the house and other normal chores for a housekeeper, Lee was required to clean the client’s tortoise. Easy, right? Well, read on.
You may think cleaning tortoise is an easy task but it’s not. Cleaning the client’s tortoise require skills and should be done with extra care.
Lee would first brush the tortoise’s’ shell and repeat the process on its belly. He then would try to remove any possible dirt from the shell. For that, he earned TW$80,000. Just be careful not to hurt the tortoise and scratch its valuable shell if you want to keep the job.
Same as to the most of us, Lee works ten hours a day, only he’s paid double or triple our salary for being a housekeeper.
Boy, doesn’t it make you want to switch jobs?
Woman Pulls Prank on Her Husband at Her Death Bed
Wouldn’t it be wonderful to find that one person that would make you smile for the rest of your life? That person who knew how to make you happy no matter what happens, even if you know that you are both going to eventually die?
Well, one man found that kind of wife – and they lived a happy life until she passed away after a 5-year battle with cancer. But little did he know that she would pull a prank on him even on her death bed and would make him smile years after her passing!
Phedre Fitton, 69, of South Africa had battled cancer for 5 years.
In her death bed, surrounded by family and holding the hands of her beloved husband whom she met when she was still 16 years old, Phedre took the time not just to bid goodbye but to also prank her husband; although he didn’t know about it until many years later.
Their daughter Antonia would share the discovery of the prank on Twitter:
Before my mum passed away, she gave my dad strict instructions to water the plants in the bathroom. He’s been religiously watering them & keeping them alive.
They [looked] so amazing he decided to take them to his new [retirement] home, only to discover they are plastic! Can [still] hear my mum chuckling.
Can you believe that? On her death bed, Phedre managed to put in one last big prank for her husband – and it was the most adorable thing!
But her husband, Nigel, really had no idea that it was a prank or that the plants weren’t actually real. He followed his wife’s instructions religiously, watering the plants not just once but twice a day! He did that for years since Phedre died of cancer in 2013.
Their kids only find out when they helped him move to his new retirement home. Isn’t this hilarious but also quite sweet?
