Incredible story of how man met his wife and it involves a total stranger's grave

The story is so bizarre it should be turned into a film.

The best romances often start in an unusual way.

You might have met your other half over the fruit and veg at your local supermarket. 

Or perhaps while learning to surf in a leisure centre - trust me stranger things have happened.

How about meeting 'the one' while being treatig in A&E for a bee sting (I swear I'm not making this up).






Woman's alarm after husband shows his mum his penis wanting medical advice

'Precious' new mum bans smoker husband from looking after daughter by himself

The mum also revealed that the dad wasn't pulling his weight at home.

You don't have to be a doctor to be aware of the damage second-hand smoke can do to small kids.

But the lengths one mum has gone to protect her seven month-old daughter from the effects of cigarette smoke have resulted in criticism. 

The (over) protective mum REFUSES to let her husband spend any quality time with their daughter - because he's a smoker.

Taking to a parenting forum on Reddit, she explains: "I've been told that I'm too precious with her since the day she was born, but it is being brought up in every single argument and I've had enough!"




How many minutes, hours and days you work for free by cutting your lunch break short

It's something many of us do, but it all adds up - and could even cost you.

Not taking your full, allotted lunch break is something so many of us do.

Maybe it feels as if there are not enough hours in the day to get through your work. It could be ingrained in the culture of your workplace. Or perhaps you just want to brown-nose your boss . 

Whatever your reasons, that lacklustre, rushed desk "picnic" is doing you no favours.

Aside from the fact NO ONE lies on their death bed wishing they'd worked more over-time, cutting your lunch break short could actually cost you.




Man spotted wearing earphones the wrong way - and people are very confused

A man was photographed wearing his Apple AirPods the wrong way round in his ears and it's sparked a bizarre debate.

Some things in life are pretty straightforward and just shouldn't need to be explained - like flushing the toilet after you've been or the need to stay hydrated.

But one person has seemingly thrown the whole rule book out of the window and their unusual actions have sent people into a meltdown. 

Casey Newton, a writer for The Verge, recently shared a photo on Twitter of an unnamed man wearing Apple AirPods in a very interesting way.

ASOS mocked for selling 'boob tubes' for men - but some think they're 'awesome'

Online fashion retailer ASOS has divided opinions online after launching a range of crop and bandeau tops for men.

Everywhere you turn these days it seems like hemlines and t-shirt lengths are getting shorter and shorter by the second, with some forgoing clothing all together and wearing underwear as outwear.

But it's not just women who will be baring their midriffs and showing some skin this summer. 

That's because ASOS are currently selling a number of cropped tops and bandeau-style 'boob tubes' especially for men - this includes cropped tanks, cropped sweatshirts and even cropped shirts.

However the new trend has divided opinions online and sparked a heated debate.




Woman bemused after man she met in bar makes ridiculous demand the next day

A woman shared a drink with a man she met on a night out but the next morning she was left regretting her decision.

It's a pretty standard situation to find yourself in on a night out.

You're in a bar with your friends, when you catch the eye of a nice looking stranger who offers to buy you a drink or two. 

If you're single, you might say yes to the generous offer and then strike up a conversation with them, eventually exchanging numbers at the end of the night so you can go on a real date another time.

Or at least that's the hope.

Sharing the horrifying story on Reddit, the man explained that he met a woman in a rock bar with live music and they hit it off.

Writing in a post on Reddit, the unnamed woman claims her partner of three years is a doctor, who has no debt and earns an easy 200k a year.

New research has suggested that the colours we wear can have a big influence on the outcome of certain events - including job interviews.

A nationwide study has revealed that the colours we choose to wear in certain situations can have a big influence over the outcome. 

As well as revealing which colour can help you have the most fun on a night out, the research, by vaping brand blu, also suggests which shades to go for at the gym and which can help you feel more successful at work.

Of the 1,500 Brits studied, 43 percent said that the colour black was a "winner" when it came to nailing a job interview and it was also seen as the best choice for big presentations and important business meetings.



Avoid charging your mobile at airports warns security expert - or it could cost you

It's like finding someone else's toothbrush on the street and using it.

'Instagram vs reality' exposes what influencers' 'flawless' photos should really look like

Make-up, clever angles, filters, good lighting and even a cheeky bit of photoshop are all key.

It shouldn't need spelling out, but here we go - sometimes social media isn't 100% representative of the truth.

A scroll through Facebook or Instagram may throw up countless polished and envy-inducing images, but these don't always tell the full story. 

Your favourite influencers could be some of the worst culprits when it comes to this "smoke and mirrors" approach, which probably doesn't shock you.

What IS shocking is what these images look like from a different angle, or before make-up and filters have been applied, or before they've been digitally tweaked.

A café near the Vatican has redefined the term "tourist trap" .

Caffe Vaticano is in a prime location - and tourists are paying through the nose for it.

It shows a meal for two totalling €81.40 (£70.62). This princely sum bought them a measly two burgers and three coffees.
