NY Woman Keeps Getting Bill For Telephone Poll (REAL)
Imagine getting electric bills for thousands of dollars a month, only they're addressed to the utility pole outside your home. That's what 83-year-old Maria Sprizzohad been dealing with last year.
She kept getting electric bills addressed to the utility pole in front of her home in excess of $2000. When she called the electric company, they told her to simply throw the bills out. Only she would also get notices of termination following those bills.
Each letter is addressed to Charter Communications with her exact address followed by the word “pole.” The electric company says that according to their records, the client connected to the pole, Charter Communications, has an outstanding debt and it's a normal operating procedure to send those bills and termination letters out every month to the address on file. Her address is the one that is on file for Charter Communications. They also said she is not on the hook for any of those bills.

Grandfather Chainsaws His Face And Drives Himself To Hospital (REAL)
An Australian grandfather sliced his face and tongue in half with a chainsaw and ended up driving himself to hospital after 'tying his head together.'
Bill Singletonhad told his wife he was headed out to cut some firewood. He had driven through a solitary, winding dirt road to reach where the firewood would be cut. While cutting the wood, the chainsaw had ricocheted off the timber and back towards his face. He sliced his face and tongue in half.
With nobody around to help, he held his face together and realized he couldn't call anyone because he couldn't talk. His tongue was split in two. So he hopped in his truck and drove 20 miles away to the nearest hospital. There, surgeons worked on him for hours and managed to put his face back together again. Surgeons said he was 'one centimeter' from severing his carotid artery and they can't believe he was able to drive all that way. They said it's a good thing he didn't look in the rearview mirror, otherwise, he might not have made it.
