TODAY’S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .
Amazon, because their 20th Anniversary Prime Day turned out to be a real fail.
Prime Day was supposed be a day with so many sales that it was supposed to be bigger than Black Friday.
Critics say the deals weren’t that good, and they were on random items, as if they were trying to unload their inventory of things no one ever buys.
To make matters worse, you had to be a Prime Member, which upset many first time visitors to the site.
AND THEN THERE’S …..
A group of Reddit users, who attempted to shame police in Lafayette, Indiana for parking in a handicapped space.
The photo garnered over a million views before a Chief of Operations showed that the space was not properly marked as a handicapped space.
Under the law, no car could be ticketed for parking there as no special permit would have been required.
The Reddit posters and commenters have not apologized.
OR HOW ABOUT …..
Ariana Kelly, 39, a state delegate in Maryland, who was arrested for indecent exposure after she went to her ex-husband’s house, banged on his door, and flashed him.
Kelly was dropping off her children at her ex-husband’s house, when she became upset that his fiancee was inside the residence.
An officer who responded to the scene told Kelly that she could be arrested for indecent exposure and asked her to leave.
Kelly apparently said, “Arrest me then,” and she extended her wrists toward the officer.
Kelly, who was elected to the House of Delegates in 2010 and reelected last year is a member of a legislative task force that is studying maternal mental health issues.
