Five Tips For How to Survive the Holidays as a Couple

The website SheKnows has a list of tips on how to survive the holidays as a couple.

Here are five of their suggestions . . .

1. Make a pact upfront that you're in it together, no matter HOW stressful things get.

2. If you're staying with family over Christmas, have lots of sex BEFORE you travel, since you probably won't be getting any while you're there.

3. Talk about your family's baggage, and how to deal with any family members who are argumentative or overly-sensitive.

4. Decide on a safe word for when you're about to go crazy . . . in case you have to drop it into the conversation to let your boyfriend or girlfriend know you've had enough.

5. And finally, decide on how you're going to celebrate once you've gotten through the holidays . . . so you have something to look forward to.

Remember the Guy Looking For a Girl With the Same Name As His Ex? He Found a Mat

There was a story last month about a 28-year-old guy in Toronto named Jordan Axani who got DUMPED by his girlfriend . . . right after he'd booked them plane tickets for a trip around the world.

Jordan didn't want the tickets to go to waste, so he decided to look for a woman with the SAME NAME as his ex . . . Elizabeth Gallagher. She also had to have a Canadian passport, and she didn't even have to hang out with him.

Well . . . Jordan got thousands of emails from women, including EIGHTEEN Elizabeth Gallaghers in Canada.

And he just decided to give the tickets to a 23-year-old Elizabeth Gallagher from Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia. Yes, she's attractive. But she also has a serious BOYFRIEND, who was apparently cool with her traveling the world for a month with a random dude?

They'll meet in New York today for the first time, then head to Milan, Italy . . . Vienna, Austria . . . Prague, Czech Republic . . . Paris . . . Bangkok . . . and Delhi, India. They get home January 12th.

A Restaurant Gives Free Meals to Men Over 300 lbs and Women Under 75 lbs

There's a restaurant that's catering to very, very large men married to very, very tiny women. And no, it's not a restaurant that's secretly looking for couples to star in CBS sitcoms.

The Na Huo restaurant in Chongqing, China just announced a new policy: You can eat there for FREE if you're a man who weighs over 300 pounds . . . or you're a woman who weighs under 75 pounds.

Obviously, neither of those weights sounds very healthy . . . so yeah, you get free food, but you may have some other, bigger problems to deal with.

The restaurant says it started the policy because, quote, "Na Huo cares about fat people and thin people. Bring your fat or thin friends, eat for free."

As far as we could tell, 300-pound women and 75-pound men do not get the discount.

If you're like the stereotypical guy in sitcoms and commercials, you haven't bought any Christmas presents yet. But that might actually be a good thing . . . at least you can hear THIS before you buy anything.

A new study had women name the worst gifts their husband or boyfriend could buy them.

Here are the top 11 . . .

1. Socks.

2. Bath salts . . . the stuff you get at Bath and Body Works for the bathtub, NOT the drug that makes you eat people's faces.

3. Chocolate.

4. Perfume . . . because you'll never pick the right one.

5. Body spray.

6. Toiletries.

7. Gift cards.

8. Kitchenware.

A Couple Locked in a Car... Because They Didn't Know They Could Unlock It Manual

68-year-old Brian Smith of New Zealand and his 65-year-old wife Mollieanne recently bought a new Mazda 3 with keyless entry, where you use the keychain remote to unlock the car.

And last month, they were sitting inside the car in their garage when the doors automatically locked. They didn't have the remote with them, and they thought the keychain remote was the ONLY way to unlock the car.

So they PANICKED, and started honking their horn, hoping someone would hear it and come help. But no one did.

At some point you'd THINK they would have noticed there were buttons on the doors to unlock the car MANUALLY, but they didn't. They even tried to smash one of the windows with a tire iron instead . . . but it wouldn't break.

So they just sat there . . . for 13 HOURS . . . until a neighbor found them. By then Mollieanne was unconscious, and Brian was having trouble breathing. Paramedics say if they'd been there much longer, they might have died.

Mollieanne ended up spending three days in the hospital. And they could have kept quiet and saved themselves the embarrassment . . . but she says they went public with the story, so other people don't make the same mistake.

A Couple Busted Because of a Mistake on Their Forged Deed

24-year-old Justin Dean and his 23-year-old wife Jenna are not millionaires. We're not even sure they're thousandaires, since they run a marginally successful horse grooming company. But for a few months, they got to live like royals.

Justin and Jenna moved themselves into a 7,000 square foot mansion in Keystone Heights, Florida in September. The home had been in foreclosure since 2011 and they must've thought it was going to stay that way . . . so they decided to SQUAT.

They even posted photos on Facebook of their new house, which they claimed they bought for just $1,000 after, quote, "years of looking and harassing banks about their foreclosures."

But there was a problem, when someone ACTUALLY bought the house in September for $1.1 million . . . and found the Deans living there. The only piece of furniture the Deans had in the six-bedroom house was . . . a pool table.

Justin and Jenna quickly Photoshopped a deed to the place, but made a critical mistake on it . . . they dated it September 1st, which was Labor Day. The banks were closed on Labor Day, so they couldn't have gotten their deed that day.

They were both arrested for forgery and grand theft.

A Dog Sets a House on Fire by Playing With Matches

Next time you're lecturing your kids about playing with matches, maybe you should also make the DOG listen too. Sure, he probably won't understand a word . . . but it's worth a shot.

A dog in Mount Lorne, in the Yukon Territory in Canada, accidentally set a house on fire a few weeks ago . . . because it was playing with matches.

Apparently the dog found a box of those "strike anywhere" matches and was chewing it on his bed. He managed to IGNITE them . . . set his bed on fire . . . and the fire started spreading.

Fortunately no one was hurt in the fire . . . including the dog, who got out of there. But the house suffered some serious smoke damage.

And even though you probably already know this . . . a dog can't be charged with arson.

Two Guys Taped Try to Get Their Stories Straight in the Back of a Cop Car

39-year-old Daniel Gargiulo and 38-year-old Michael Rochefort of Jupiter, Florida were arrested a few months back, after they broke into two houses. The police found a bunch of stolen stuff in their car, like purses and tools.

So the cops put them in the back of a cruiser and went to search their car some more. And while Daniel and Michael had that moment alone, they tried to get their stories straight.

There was just one problem. They didn't see the camera in the cop car pointing directly at them, recording what they were saying.

So they were busted making a plan to blame the stolen stuff on another guy who they'd just dropped off at a gas station.

But the cops checked the surveillance footage from the gas station and saw the guys DIDN'T actually drop anyone off.

They were both just charged with burglary, criminal mischief, and grand theft.

A Mistletoe Drone at TGI Friday's Accidentally Clipped a Woman's Nose

Some TGI Friday's have a gimmick this Christmas where a DRONE carrying MISTLETOE hovers over couples so they can kiss over their mozzarella sticks.

So a photographer for the "Brooklyn Daily" named Georgine Benvenuto went to a TGI Friday's in Brooklyn, New York on Thursday, to take pictures of couples kissing under the drone.

Unfortunately for Georgine, the drone lost control while she was there . . . CLIPPED her . . . and CHOPPED OFF a tiny chunk of the tip of her nose.

From the pictures, it looks like it was just a scratch . . . but Georgine says it really did take some flesh.

The guy who was flying the drone has a different story. He says Georgine asked him to land it on her arm . . . and when he did, she FLINCHED, which is how it clipped her nose.

There's no word on Georgine potentially suing.

A Woman Got Revenge on a Guy Who Bullied Her in School by Standing Him Up on a D

22-year-old Louisa Manning of Cambridgeshire, England went through an awkward phase when she was growing up . . . like all of us did. But she pulled through, and now she's an attractive adult.

Then a few weeks ago, she bumped into a guy she'd gone to high school with, and he asked her out on a date. At first she was outraged, because the guy used to BULLY her. But then she accepted the date . . . so she could get REVENGE.

First Louisa stood him up . . . then she sent a note to the restaurant with a photo of how she USED to look, and had them give the note to him.

It said, quote, "Remember when I was fat and you made fun of my weight? No? I do. I spent the following three years eating less than an apple a day. So I've decided to skip dinner.

"Remember the monobrow you mocked? The hairy legs you were disgusted by? Remember how every day for three years, you and your friends called me Manbeast?

"No perhaps you don't . . . or you wouldn't have seen how I look eight years later and deemed me [eff]able enough to treat me like a human being.

"I thought I'd send you this as a reminder. Next time you think of me, picture that girl in this photo, because she's the one who just stood you up."

Louisa says the guy reached out to her on Facebook after he got the note and apologized.

The Top Ten "Naughty" Holiday Shopping Habits

We use the whole "naughty or nice" thing to keep kids in line. But according to a new survey on "naughty" shopping habits, a lot of ADULTS should be expecting coal in their stockings this year. Here are the top ten holiday shopping habits we're ashamed of.

1. 57% of us have re-gifted something we didn't like.

2. 54% have snuck a peek at a present someone else got for them. (Which isn't really a "shopping" habit, but okay.)

3. 42% have opened something in a store and not bought it.

4. 29% of people say that if a cashier gave them too much change, they'd keep it.

5. 26% of men and 21% of women have bumped another car in a parking lot, and pretended it didn't happen.

6. 23% of us have stolen a parking spot that someone else was waiting for.

7. 19% have intentionally cut in line at a store.

8. 13% have bought something, and then claimed they MADE it. We assume that means things like pies for a party, or something on Etsy that was handmade.

9. 12% have illegally parked in a handicapped spot while they were shopping.

10. 9% have snuck something through a self-checkout line without paying for it. (Also, 22% of us have LIED to a child and said Santa isn't real.)

Two Kids Call 911 Trying to Get In Touch With Santa

Kids learn at a very young age that you should call 911 if there's an emergency. I'm not sure "getting Legos for Christmas" constitutes an emergency . . . but it might if you're a little kid.

The police in Mayville, Wisconsin just released a report about a 911 call they got a few weeks ago. Someone called 911 and hung up . . . so the cops traced the call and went to the house.

And when they got there, they found the call was from a six-year-old boy and his three-year-old brother . . . and they explained to the cops they were trying to get in touch with SANTA.

The cops told them 911 is not a good way to reach Santa.

A Homeless Guy Steals an Ambulance to Go to a Strip Club

I wish I cared about ANYTHING in life as much as this guy cares about seeing naked breasts.

There's a 51-year-old homeless guy in Pontiac, Michigan named Bryan Kryscio, and on Sunday he REALLY wanted to go to a STRIP CLUB in Detroit called the Booby Trap. But he couldn't find a bus or any other public transportation to get him there.

So . . . he stole an AMBULANCE.

Bryan saw the ambulance idling outside of a hospital, hopped in, and drove off.

When the EMTs realized their ambulance was gone, they had the cops trace it. So Bryan was quickly pulled over and arrested.

Also, it turns out the Booby Trap shut down a few years ago.

A Guy Is Arrested For Trying to Steal the Same Pair of Boots Twice

I feel like I should just buy this guy a pair of boots to STOP THE MADNESS.

49-year-old John Pasley of Gainesville, Florida is weirdly OBSESSED with a pair of boots they sell at Walmart. We're not exactly sure what type of boots they are, but I'm sure he'd be happy to tell you about them . . . again, because of the obsession.

John went to a Walmart in Gainesville last week and tried to steal the boots by putting them on and leaving his shoes in the box. But security guards caught him and he was arrested.

But that wasn't the end. He went back to the same Walmart later in the week . . . and stole the EXACT same pair of boots.

He was caught again . . . and arrested again.

A Snowplow Driver Accidentally Buried Two Kids Under Five Feet of Snow

11-year-old Elijah Martinez and his nine-year-old cousin Jason Rivera were building a snow fort in Newburgh, New York. But a plow went by, the driver didn't see them, and they got buried under five feet of snow.

Luckily they were in a pocket of air. But no one could hear them . . . and their parents didn't get worried until three hours later, when they didn't come home.

At that point their family went looking for them. Then nine cops and a police dog joined in, around midnight.

One of the cops was a guy named Brandon Rola, who happened to see a shovel sticking out of the snow pile. And on a hunch, he picked it up and started digging . . . but didn't find anything.

Luckily, he didn't stop. He says he just felt compelled to keep digging in that spot for some reason. And on his ninth or tenth shovel full of snow, he saw a BOOT.

Once that happened, everyone joined in, and it STILL took 25 minutes to get to them. But somehow both kids survived, and they're expected to make a full recovery. According to police, they were buried for about seven hours total.

A Guy Tried to Rob a 7-Eleven . . . But the Register Didn't Have Enough Money

You know those signs that businesses put up to try to deter robbers that say things like, "Safe contains less than $50"?  Maybe those really ARE a good deterrent.
A guy walked into a 7-Eleven in Newport News, Virginia around 12:30 A.M. on Monday, pulled out a GUN, and demanded cash from the clerk.  The clerk opened up the register to give the guy the money.
But when the guy got a look at just how little cash was in the register, he CURSED . . . and stormed out empty handed.
There's no word on just how little money was in the register, but clearly it wasn't worth the trouble of actually following through on the robbery.
Police are trying to find him.

A Guy Commits a Robbery Wearing a Hat With His Name on It

We'll never get sick of people getting busted for crimes because of their VANITY.
A 23-year-old guy named Haziq Shah from Edison, New Jersey broke into a MOSQUE last week, and stole several hundred dollars from its donation box.
And we know Haziq was the one who robbed the mosque because they had security cameras . . . and Haziq was wearing a black hat with "HAZIQ" embroidered on it in giant white letters.
The mosque turned the security footage over to the cops . . . and they've issued a warrant for Haziq's arrest.

Dictionary.com's Word of the Year Is....

The Oxford English Dictionary just picked VAPE as their word of the year, and now Dictionary.com has released THEIR annual word of the year . . . and it's not quite as cool. 
They picked "EXPOSURE."  How annoyed must they have been when the Oxford people went for "vape"?
Dictionary.com's editors say "exposure" sums up so much of what happened this year, from people worried about exposure to Ebola . . . to the ice bucket challenge getting exposure for ALS . . . to celebrities being exposed in hacked nude photos.
They based their pick off Google searches and the searches on their website.  Their word of the year for 2013 was "privacy" . . . so clearly they're into picking generic words that take on new, modern context. 
The runners-up for the Dictionary.com word of the year were borders, disrupt, wearables, and bae.

A Guy Told His Girlfriend He'd Been Kidnapped . . . So He Could Hang Out With Hi

There are probably better strategies to get a night out with your buddies than THIS. In fact . . . pretty much EVERY strategy is better than this.
22-year-old Justin Sarten of San Tan Valley, Arizona wanted to hang out with some SKETCHY dudes on Thursday night . . . so he started texting his girlfriend that he'd been KIDNAPPED.
She told his mom, who called the police.  And they launched an all-out manhunt for him.
Eventually they found him at a Walmart with three guys.  At first he said he HAD been kidnapped.  But he couldn't keep his story straight, and eventually admitted he'd gone with them voluntarily, and they gave him money to buy them cell phones.  (???)
None of that fully adds up, but it REALLY feels like a bunch of guys up to no good.  Anyway, Justin was arrested for falsely reporting a kidnapping.
