Doctor Suspended After Operating On Wrong Patient
Well, if THAT doesn't make you nervous about going to the hospital then you're luckier than I am. This is 'Crappy News' for Tuesday, March 6th.
United Kingdom- A retailer is being criticized for an odd swimsuit design.
If you look at the weather forecast today, swimsuits may not be the first thing that come to mind.
But many companies are already starting to roll out their swimwear lines for the year. U.K.-based ASOS unveiled a new swimsuit that features "colour-block style," "studded embellishment" and a "high-cut leg." So far, so good...right?
But here's where things get weird. In addition to leaving some pretty awkward tan lines, the product details say that the swimsuit is dry clean-only and CAN'T BE WORN IN WATER.
The company is rightfully getting dragged on social media for their fashion faux pas. [Mirror]
If you hate swimming AND doing laundry, this is the bathing suit for you.
Manhattan, NY- A college is suing a dropout...for refusing to move out of her dorm.
Hunter College is trying to evict 32-year-old Lisa Palmer, who has not paid rent since 2016 despite receiving several notices to vacate the 100-square-foot single room. Palmer has racked up $94,000 in unpaid charges.
Though university officials say Palmer dropped out, she insists the college refused to let her register for fall 2016 classes after she disputed her housing and tuition bill. Palmer, who first enrolled at Hunter in 2010, said dorm life is "really lonely" for someone in her 30s. She says she'll continue to stay in the dorm as she fights the lawsuit. [New York Post]
Maybe you'd be less lonely if you DIDN'T LIVE IN A COLLEGE DORM ROOM AT 32. #SwipeLeft
Kenya- A neurosurgeon has been suspended after opening up the head of the wrong patient.
Two men were admitted to Kenyatta National Hospital last Sunday. One needed surgery to remove a blood clot in his brain while the other only required treatment for a closed head injury.
Their ID tags had been mistakenly switched, and doctors didn't realize the blunder until hours into the surgery, when they discovered there was no blood clot in the brain of the man on the operating table.
Yup, that settles it. I'm never going to the doctor again.
