Woman says she slipped on sandwich leftovers, sues store

DOVER, Del.

A Delaware judge says a woman who said she slipped on the remnants of a sandwich can continue her lawsuit against a popular convenience store chain.

Lisa Donovan says she slipped and fell on “hoagie guts,” or discarded sandwich pieces, in the parking lot of a Wawa store in 2014.

Defense attorneys asked for summary judgment in their favor, arguing that Donovan had failed to identify a liability expert on the issue of whether the store was negligent.

Donovan argued that an expert was unnecessary because the need to sweep up trash in a parking lot is something the average person can understand.

The judge agreed with Donovan last week, saying a splattered hoagie in a parking lot is no different than water on the floor of a grocery store.

Runaway garbage truck hits store named A Beautiful Mess

HENRIETTA, N.Y.

A runaway garbage truck slammed into the front of a New York gift shop named A Beautiful Mess and caused extensive damage.

Owner Jeri Flack said she received a call from police on Oct. 23 that a garbage truck rolled away from a gas station in Henrietta, traveled across the street and crashed into Flack’s retail store.

WHAM-TV reported that gas-station workers said the truck driver parked there to use the bathroom and the truck had rolled away by the time he returned.

No one was injured, but the truck’s impact caused serious structural damage to the 200-year-old brick building.

Flack says she doesn’t know if she’ll be able to reopen in time for the Christmas shopping season.

Judge serves eviction notice on pregnant mom’s unborn baby

PROVO, Utah

A Utah mom in her final days of pregnancy gave her baby an eviction notice and made it official with a judge’s signature. Incredibly, the baby obeyed.

Kaylee Bays was pregnant with her third child, a girl, and thought she was going into labor last week, but it stopped.

She went back to work to her job as a judicial assistant at the Fourth District Court in Provo and jokingly asked Judge Lynn Davis to serve an eviction notice on her baby.

He did. And it worked. Less than 12 hours later, baby Gretsel was born, the Daily Herald reported.
