Things you've heard on the show: October 2014!

All the little bits and pieces you've heard Kate, Tim & Marty talking about this month!

BEER DELIVERY MAN STOPS ROBBERY

This guy definitely earned himself a cold one! A beer delivery guy in Oklahoma managed to save the day at a convenience store. The cashier was being held up by what looked to be an armed robber when he intervened. What's even more shocking is that it was a 14-year-old boy under all those layers...and it was a school day!

MAN FREAKS OUT WHEN NO-ONE THANKS HIM

WARNING: strong language. A guy holding a bible decided to hold the door open at In-N-Out Burger. After a while, they asked him to stop holding the door open for customers and either buy something or leave. He ignored those options, and instead, got reeeaaaaalllly angry inside the store. We think he may have overreacted!

TOM HANKS' RANDOM ACT OF KINDNESS FOR A CABBIE

Tom Hanks’ Random Act Of Kindness For NYC Cabbie

This is all the proof you need that karma is real.

One lucky cab driver picked up Tom Hanks and later got to spend some one-on-one time with the actor backstage on Broadway. The cabbie starts his tale by saying how he picked up a man who asked to go to 74th Street, but he turned him down because that’s too far away when his shift is about to end. But then he starts to feel bad and tells the guy to hop in because, in his words, “hey—I got a conscience.”

“So I call him back to the cab and tell him to hop in. And he gets in the car all excited, all animated, and he’s talking about all these things,” the driver shared.

At this point, the 58-year-old’s cap is still covering his eyes — but after chatting all the way to 74th Street, he begins to recognise his voice and realises the man in his car is none other than the Academy Award winner Tom Hanks.

“And when we get to a light, I turn to him, and I look him in the eye, and I scream, ‘WIIIIIIILLLSSSSSOOOOOOON!!!’ And that really got him. He started laughing hard,” the cab driver gushed.

“He sees that I’ve got this Ferrari hat on, and a Ferrari shirt too, so he starts calling me ‘Mr. Ferrari.’ The whole ride, he keeps calling me Mr. Ferrari.’ So after we get to his destination, we snap a quick photo, and he goes on his way. And I think that’s it.”

The story gets even more interesting, as “Mr. Ferrari” explained he kept picking people up who were randomly connected to Tom — such as costars and other people who have worked with him before. And he always told them “tell Mr. Hanks that Mr. Ferrari says ‘Hello.’”

“Then one day I’m driving, and I get a text from one of the people that I’d driven and it says, ‘Mr. Hanks wants to invite you to see his Broadway show,’”.

“So I bring my lady to the show and we get to go backstage and everything, and after the show, we’re waiting for him in his dressing room, and he walks in and screams: ‘Mr. Ferrari!’

"Can you believe that story? And wanna know the craziest thing? The name of his show was ‘Lucky Guy.’ How crazy is that? ‘Cause that was me. A lucky guy!”

 

FATHER PUTS 10 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER ON BLAST LYING ABOUT HER AGE

Father Puts 10 Year old Daughter On Blast Lying About Her Age

This does not look like the face of a happy 10 year old, and for good reason! Her father put her on blast recently!

This father took matters into his own hands when he found out that his daughter was online pretending to be 18 years old and even managed to get herself a boyfriend!

He decided to put her on blast:
Since my beautiful daughter Janiya wants to be grown and lie about her age. Saying she is 14,15,16 & 18 years old. She claims to be in love and going with a boyfriend which is completely against my rules!!!! I uncovered that she has been doing this for quite some time. She also has snuck and obtained social media accounts, also against my rules!!!! Here’s the consequence behind her actions. An age defining shirt. Yes people she is 5’9 and 10 years old. #BuddiesBarrettesBallBalls

The Father probably realised that his daughter's social media habits could have been unwittingly making her vulnerable to predators and putting her in real danger. That said you really wouldn't want to be that poor 10-year-old girl today.
