A restaurant owner left the most heartwarming note for the person who was digging through her trash.

I really hope the person comes back.

Ashley Jiron owns a restaurant in Oklahoma. One day she noticed something odd.

From Katie DeLong, FOX 6 NOW:

“Last week, I had noticed some bags, when I had taken out the trash, were torn open and some of the food was taken out," Ashley Jiron, owner of P.B. Jams, said. “That really, it hurt me that someone had to do that."

She could have done what so many do when they come face to face with someone who is desperate — ignore it, decide it isn't her problem, and move on.


But instead, she posted this sign on the door of her restaurant.

Saw this outside of P.B. Jams today. #thatswhatlovelookslike

It's easy to forget that more than 600,000 Americans won't have a home tonight. It's maybe even easier to forget that there are over 17 million families in the U.S. who don't have enough to eat or worry about where their next meal is coming from. When politicians talk about cutting government spending, food stamps is often the first thing on their lips.

Too often, we look away from people who are experiencing great pain or need. Too often, we think they somehow deserve it. Too often we can't put ourselves in their shoes.

And that's why these four small words she included in her note...

"You're a human being."

...mean absolutely everything.

“I think we've all been in that position where we needed someone's help and we just needed someone to extend that hand. And if I can be that one person to extend that hand to another human being, then I will definitely do it," Jiron said.

Yes indeed.

You're probably familiar with the literary classic "Moby-Dick."

But in case you're not, here's the gist: Moby Dick is the name of a huge albino sperm whale.

Memories of testing like this gets people fired up.

It doesn't take much to cause everyone on the internet to go a little crazy, so it's not completely surprising that an incorrect answer on a child's math test is the latest event to get people fired up.

The test in question asked kids to solve "5 x 3" using repeated addition. Under this method, the correct answer is "5 groups of 3," not "3 groups of 5." The question is typical of Common Core but has many questioning this type of standardized testing and how it affects learning.

Gordon Ramsay at play... work.


Gordon Ramsay is not exactly known for being nice.

Or patient.

Or nurturing.

On his competition show "Hell's Kitchen," he belittles cooks who can't keep up. If people come to him with their problems, he berates them. If someone is struggling to get something right in the kitchen, he curses them out.

When Lily Evans set out to walk her dog, she had no idea the story of that walk would later go viral on the internet.

When she took to Twitter to recount her experience, she opened with a simple question, one that many men have probably wondered for a long time — though women already know the answer.

(Before you click through to the thread itself, note that Lily's Twitter account is expressly for adults and may be NSFW.)

The show must go on… and more power to her.

There are few things that feel more awful than being stranded at the altar by your spouse-to-be. That’s why people are cheering on Kayley Stead, 27, from the U.K. for turning a day of extreme disappointment into a party for her friends, family and most importantly, herself.

According to a report in The Metro, on Thursday, September 15, Stead woke up in an Airbnb with her bridemaids, having no idea that her fiance, Kallum Norton, 24, had run off early that morning. The word got to Stead’s bridesmaids at around 7 a.m. the day of the wedding.
