Pizza Hut Thinks We Should Eat Pasta With Our Fingers
Jeff and his wife were traveling, and had a hankering for one of Pizza Hut’s pasta dishes. They ordered up some starch-laden caloriffic goodness from The Hut’s website, then followed up with a phone call to say, “hey, we’re staying in a motel, can you send along some plastic forks?” This was evidently too much for the local Pizza Hut to handle. Which is kind of odd, considering that they deliver food and all.
My wife and I travel a great deal, and spend several nights a month in motels and hotels…

Folks located in some parts of the U.S., Canada, Asia and the Pacific were lucky enough to see the eclipse in full, and some captured the event on video.

Want To Look At A Car? Dodge Dealership Needs All Of Your Info
Allen wanted to look at a new Dodge Charger. Not test-drive it. Just look at it, and maybe check out the interior or sit inside. But the dealership he visited wouldn’t let him even look at the car without taking down his name, address, driver’s license information, and phone number. Annoyed, he left the dealership and did a Google Images search or something instead.
So I am in the market for a family car and went to [redacted] Dodge in [redacted], CA. I was greeted outside and told the sales person I was interested in checking out the Dodge Charger sedan…

When You Need to Buy SSL Certificate Encryption for Your Website
Every day, millions of individuals make online purchases, fill out forms and log into their online profiles on thousands of websites. But exposing their private information to hackers remains a persistent concern for many users, and as a result, many websites take steps to make transmitting sensitive data to their sites as secure as they possibly can. This increases user confidence in using the site, and in the case of many e-commerce websites, may be the determining factor for whether a visitor completes a purchase…

If The Bank Hands You A Counterfeit Bill, You’re Probably Stuck With It
While financial institutions often go through various security checks to make sure that the $50 and $100 bills you hand to them are genuine, most consumers will accept these same bills from banks without giving a thought to whether or not they are bogus. Problem is, if you end up with counterfeit cash, you are most likely screwed.
A New Jersey man says he recently learned this the hard way, when he withdrew $2,500 in cash from his TD Bank account and tried to deposit it at Bank of America…

Pay No Attention To The Flickering Excited Pixel On Your Plasma TV
Joshua has only had his Panasonic 3-D plasma TV for six months, so it’s still well within the initial one-year warranty. It’s developed a strange problem where one particular area of the screen glows bright green, flickers, and is hot to the touch. Once Panasonic was able to find someone on staff capable of viewing the YouTube video he sent in as evidence, they ultimately concluded that a hot flickering pixel is not covered by the warranty. Really? Somehow, he expected more after dropping $1,500 on a TV…

Fraudulent eBay Buyer Leaves You Minus $1000 And A MacBook Pro
Earlier this month, Jacob sold a MacBook Pro on eBay. His buyer appeared to be in Australia, but contacted him after payment and asked to have the computer shipped to Indonesia. Since he’s both a Consumerist reader and a person with a functioning brain, Jacob was wary of this change, suspecting some kind of fraud. He called up eBay to see what he should do. The customer service representative told him that he needed to mail the laptop, or it would negatively affect his seller account…
The "Alcohol-Free" Part Of A Daiquiri Order For 4-Year-Olds Is The Key Phrase
We’ve seen it too many times by now — ordering kids a beverage that in no way should include alcohol and then, woopsies, there’s booze in a 4-year-old’s cup. In this case, two boys, both 4, reportedly got alcoholic strawberry daiquiris, sending one of the kids to the hospital.
Tampa Bay Online says two moms are claiming their sons were given alcohol at a local Frenchy’s. The boys had earned a special treat, so the moms ordered alcohol-free strawberry daiquiris. Yum.
One of the boys finished his drink super quick, in about 10 minutes…
