    Has Your Boss "Checked Out?"

    According to a new Gallup survey of American managers, 51% have basically checked out and don't care about their jobs or the company they work for. "Day in and day out, managers are tasked with engaging employees, but 51% of managers have essentially ‘checked out,’ meaning they care little, if at all, about their job and company," says the Gallup report. And, of course, if managers are checked out, that doesn’t bode well for the morale of the employees who report to them. Wanting independent verification, I decided to ask my own boss a few questions, and get her opinion on the article. -I could not find her anywhere :) ~Rowdy

    Avoid Napping on the Job!

    Falling asleep on the job can be dangerous. Just ask the Alaska Airlines ramp worker who fell asleep on the cargo hold of a Boeing 737. His banging prompted pilots to make an emergency landing in Seattle on Monday afternoon. The drama unfolded on a flight headed for Los Angeles. According to Alaska Air, the plane's pilots "reported hearing banging from beneath the aircraft...immediately after takeoff." Passengers seated in first class also heard the banging and someone yelling for help. The airline added, "The captain immediately returned to Seattle, declaring an emergency priority landing" after the plane was in the air for 14 minutes. Since the front cargo hold was pressurized and temperature controlled, the ramp agent appeared to be fine, but was still sent to the hospital to get checked out. Alaska Airlines added, "Upon exiting, he told authorities he had fallen asleep." The airline says it's "actively investigating the matter." *The employee, likely, will be actively investigating new and exciting career opportunities. ~Rowdy

    How to Get Over Him-the Scientific Way

    So it turns out the best way to get over a breakup is NOT to eat an entire pan of brownies, down a few bottles of Cab, or hook up with a stranger. Believe it or not, a study shows that the best way to get over it is to dwell on it. After studying 200-plus adults who had recently gone through a breakup, researchers at the University of Arizona and Northwestern University found that the most effective way to get over a split was to talk about it. They found that the people who discussed their breakups at length over a two-month period reported feeling less lonely and had fewer obsessive thoughts than those who didn't spend a lot of time talking about it. *Your poor friends … ~Rowdy

    Fair Food 2015?

    It must be fair season, because someone has created a funnel cake ice cream sandwich. Picture vanilla mascarpone ice cream, sandwiched between two deep-fried funnel cakes. This sweet sensation if the creation of John Park, owner of Ice Que in Alhambra, California. For now, you can only get the funnel cake ice cream sandwich – which sell for $6.50 – on Thursday nights from 6-8 p.m, but John says if it takes off he'll increase the availability. Hopefully, we'll be tasting this tantalizing treat in September! ~Rowdy

    One Crappy Criminal

    A crook in Iowa is sure to be the butt of jokes for some time to come after staging a robbery that netted him one thing -- a bag of dog poop! The victim called 911 and told police that someone had broken into the driver's side door of his truck in the wee hours of Wednesday morning. The suspect, who is still at large, used a blunt object to bust into the vehicle, and ended up damaging the steering column and ignition switch with the same item. When he realized he was getting nowhere with the truck theft, the wannabe crook decided to clean up by snatching the contents of the truck bed -- which amounted to one large bag of dog feces. The police report values the poop at one dollar -- but the suspect could still face charges of third-degree burglary, a class-C felony. I had no idea it was worth that much money. By the looks of my back yard, I am on my way to an early retirement. ~Rowdy

    Prayers Answered!

    Sometimes you just have to have a bean and cheese burrito ... and going out to get one is just too much work. Well, your prayers have been answered, because the CEO of Taco Bell just revealed that they are testing out a delivery service to become a more "on-demand" brand. No word yet on the market the delivery service will be tested in ... but we're pretty sure it will be somewhere there's a college or two. Or, access to a bumper crop of weed. ~Rowdy
