Amazon.com is opening a hair salon in London. The salon will feature cutting-edge technology that will allow customers to experiment with different hair colors through virtual reality. People will be able to post pictures of themselves before using point-and-click technology to see how certain colors look on them. And if you’re a Prime member, the haircut will take half the time!

Over in England, Clare Middle was confused when she found a head of cabbage in her yard that had been tossed over the fence. She assumed it was just some kids having some fun, but then a month later, she found another head of cabbage, some broccoli, and even a wheel of cheese thrown into her yard. It was also happening to her neighbors. The bizarre assault has been reported to police. Now, had it been pizza being thrown into her yard, there would have been no need for a police report!

In honor of National Administrative Professionals Day, one survey asked administrative assistants to weigh in with the craziest requests they’ve received. Some of which included:
– Inspect the boss’s sandwich every day to make sure it contained no tomatoes.
– Take a Johnny Mathis album cover to the tailor to find material that matched Johnny’s jacket.
And the best yet…Drop off a pet’s stool sample at the vet. The woman wrote: “He left the container on my desk while I was having lunch.” And you thought YOUR boss was bad.
