Mom Cries When Airplane Seat-Mate Calls Her A ‘Smelly Fatty,’ Then Stranger Gets Involved

We are where nostalgia lives

Flying can be an awful experience for some people, whether you’re afraid of heights or sitting next to someone you don’t like. Usually if you’re sitting next to someone you don’t like, it doesn’t help that the airplane seats are so small, you’re basically sitting in their lap.

For those who are a little bigger, it can be especially more difficult and frustrating to sit comfortably on an airplane. A mother named Savannah Phillips recently wrote a public Facebook post about all of her body insecurity fears being brought to life by one stranger on a plane.

I am only sharing this story of what happened to me today in hopes that the person who stuck up for me will somehow be…

Posted by Savannah Phillips on Monday, May 14, 2018

Savannah described the situation in full detail, and it has such a wonderful ending it could bring tears to anyone’s eyes. Savannah was assigned to a seat on the plane and she was anxious about this because she usually tries to pick a spot where no one is sitting. According to Savannah, her worst fear is someone being uncomfortable because they’d have to sit so closely to her.

When she got on the airplane, she sat right next to an older man who looked to be in his sixties. Savannah had to pass by the man to get to her seat and when both of them were buckled in, she saw his texts. He was texting someone in huge front, full brightness, explaining that he was sitting next to a “smelly fatty.” Savannah couldn’t help but cry.

Posted by Savannah Phillips on Sunday, December 4, 2016

Soon after the realization of that text, a stranger named Chase tapped on the man’s shoulder, telling him they were switching seats. Once Chase sat down next to Savannah, he asked her if she had seen those texts. He revealed to her that he, too, had seen the messages and was enraged.

Chase told the man, “I read your texts. And the girl next to you crying also read your texts. And you should take into consideration other people’s feelings.”

They ended up sitting together, talking about their lives, and Chase gave Savannah the hope in humanity she needed. Go Chase!

We are where nostalgia lives

No one likes using the public bathroom of a fast food restaurant. Well, this dad just had to change his baby’s diaper on the floor of a public bathroom in a fast food restaurant. And he was (obviously) not happy about it.

Dad Chris Mau says he had no choice as there was barely any counter space and no baby changing station. He found that the only other option was to lay his daughter down on the germ-infested public bathroom floor and change her there.

I'm getting pretty sick of having to change my daughter on a disgusting floor because the only changing table in the…

Posted by Chris Boneyard Mau on Saturday, May 26, 2018

Chris shared his post publicly on Facebook without exposing the restaurant by name. Chris says that he did not feel comfortable going into the women’s bathroom, so he just laid out an ’emergency towel’ and changed his daughter’s diaper on the floor. He was frustrated that more restaurants don’t accommodate men’s bathrooms with diaper changing stations.

Chris made his point very clear in his Facebook post, saying, “It’s crazy to imagine I know but there are guys who take care of their kids too you a**hats. If it’s a public place with public restrooms in the generation of equality among genders and races then how about making sure us fathers can change our children’s diapers on a goddamn changing table like the mother’s can. Am I asking too much?”

One mother who commented even said that she had no choice but to change her baby’s diaper on the floor of a gas station.

Another mother left a rather humorous comment to lighten the mood, while praising Chris at the same time!

According to one commenter, sometimes they don’t even have changing stations in women’s restrooms! It’s evident that Chris’ demand for men’s room changing tables has brought many people together. Chris has stated since that 95% of the comments he receives are positive!

7 Surprising Facts You Might Not Know About Red Robin

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

We are where nostalgia lives

Red Robin is one of the most popular fast food chains in the country. It’s well-known for it’s ‘gourmet burgers and brews’ as listed on any official Red Robin website. But did you know it didn’t always have burgers on the menu?

There are so many secret facts about Red Robin you didn’t know. Be sure to keep all of these in mind next time you grab a burger at this chain restaurant.

1. The first Red Robin ever was just a small tavern

In the 1940s, a man named Sam opened up a tavern near the campus of the University of Washington. He originally got the name from a song called, “When the Red, Red Robin (Comes Bob, Bob, Bobbin’ Along).”

2. They’ve won awards for their food and service

Red Robin won the “Best Burger – Full Service” category in the Zagat fast-food survey 4 years in a row! The other restaurant chains in competition included Steak ‘n Shake, Cheesecake Factory, Ruby Tuesday, and Chili’s Grill & Bar.

3. A portion of the sales from their freckled lemonade goes to Alex’s Lemonade Stand

It’s cold out there. Stop in here for some bottomless drinks and bottomless fun.

A post shared by Red Robin Gourmet Burgers (@redrobinburgers) on Feb 1, 2018 at 12:51pm PST

They host their own lemonade stands at several locations, but they additionally donate a portion of their proceeds from the annual sales of Freckled Lemonade to childhood cancer charity Alex’s Lemonade Stand. The company has raised and donated more than $1 million since 2012.

4. The original location doesn’t exist anymore

Chimi Chimi yeahhhhh! #ChimiFresco

A post shared by Red Robin Gourmet Burgers (@redrobinburgers) on Oct 5, 2017 at 12:04pm PDT

The original tavern started by good ole’ Sam in the 1940s is no more. The cost for maintaining a 90-year-old building became too high and thus the location closed down in 2010.

5. Two restaurant regulars started the Red Robin franchise

Don't worry, you can stare as long as you want, no glasses required.

A post shared by Red Robin Gourmet Burgers (@redrobinburgers) on Aug 21, 2017 at 8:06am PDT

Two regulars, Mike and Steve Snyder, opened their own Red Robin in their hometown of Yakima, Washington. They soon started the Snyder Group Company and opened their own chain of Red Robins across the northwest.

6. Hamburgers weren’t originally on the menu

No burgers at a Red Robin?! It sounds like madness, but it’s true. Diners originally could chose from foods such as popcorn or sandwiches until 1973. Once the restaurant added their loaded burgers, sales took off from there.

7. HGTV’s Property Brothers once worked at a Red Robin

Drew Scott and Jonathan Scott from HGTV’s “Property Brothers” used to be busboys at a local Red Robin! Maybe the food business wasn’t for them?

Joe Jackson, Father And Manager Of The Jackson 5, Has Been Hospitalized Due To Terminal Cancer

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

We are where nostalgia lives

TMZ reported first that 89-year-old Joe Jackson is on his deathbed after a battle with terminal cancer. The disease is now in its final stages. Joe Jackson is the father of the incredible King of Pop, Michael Jackson.

His wife, Katherine, and some of his 11 children and grandchildren have flocked to his bedside in Las Vegas. According to his family members, he has very little time left and the cancer is unable to be treated.

Jermaine Jackson, one of Joe’s many sons, has spoken publicly about his father’s illness. Apparently, they had been struggling to hear updates about their father’s condition for awhile.

“No one knew what was going on — we shouldn’t have to beg, plead and argue to see our own father, especially at a time like this,” he told Daily Mail. “We have been hurting. We were not being told where he was and couldn’t get the full picture. Even from the doctor. My mother was worried sick.”

On the new story re Joseph. I'd like to be clear: I've no problem speaking up when it comes to the welfare of this family, but a journalist called me with information he clearly already had about my father. I confirmed certain details but "revealed" nothing. (1/2)

— Jermaine Jackson (@jermjackson5) June 21, 2018

Furthermore, Jermaine has lashed out against journalists on social media, claiming he’s unhappy with some of the harsh headlines.

2: My father's health is not good, but "dying" is a harsh word chosen by headline writers, not me. For however long he has left, my mother, siblings, and relatives want to be with him, without hindrance. (2/2)

— Jermaine Jackson (@jermjackson5) June 21, 2018

Joe is best known for managing The Jackson 5 and for his allegedly complicated relationship with late son, Michael Jackson. A tell-all book (written by the King of Pop himself) was released in 1988 claiming Joe hit Michael regularly.

“If you messed up you got hit, sometimes with a switch, sometimes with a belt,” Michael wrote. “Dad would make me so mad at him that I’d try to get back at him and get beaten all the more.”

A post shared by BRIAN LEE KERSHAW (@superstarsstyle) on Jun 21, 2018 at 7:19pm PDT

In recent years, reports surfaced that Joe had been caught in a car accident and was rushed to the hospital. He later reported himself on his own website that he was fine, but his assistant endured broken bones.

Prayers to the Jackson family 🙏 #Joejackson has been hospitalized.

A post shared by Hip-Hop Basement (@hiphopbasement_) on Jun 20, 2018 at 11:48pm PDT

It is unknown how long Joe has been battling cancer, but what we do know is that his name might be making headlines again sometime soon.

ABC Announces ‘Roseanne’ Spinoff Called ‘The Conners’ With Everyone But Roseanne Barr

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

We are where nostalgia lives

After the “Roseanne” reboot was canceled because of Roseanne Barr’s racist tweets, ABC lost a lot of money and viewers. The original reboot had been a success, but ABC could no longer tolerate Roseanne Barr’s questionable tweets.

This sudden cancellation left a spot open in their TV lineup and executives decided to go ahead with a “Roseanne” spinoff show called “The Conners.” It will reportedly include everyone in the cast but Roseanne Barr.

#FridayFeeling #Roseanne

A post shared by Roseanne on ABC (@roseanneonabc) on May 25, 2018 at 10:00am PDT

“The Conners” will premiere in the fall. It will air on Tuesdays at 8 p.m. and start off with 10-episodes. Darlene (Sara Gilbert), Dan (John Goodman), Jackie (Laurie Metcalf), Becky (Lecy Goranson), and D.J. (Michael Fishman) will all return. Rumors around the show’s return and Roseanne’s disappearance are that they will say she has died due to complications with a knee surgery. “The Conners” may begin by focusing on Roseanne’s sudden death and how the family is dealing with it.

45 years strong 💪💪💪#Roseanne

A post shared by Roseanne on ABC (@roseanneonabc) on May 8, 2018 at 5:19pm PDT

ABC did not want Roseanne Barr to profit from this new show and said in the press release for the reboot that she will not have any financial or creative involvement in “The Conners.” However, they did want to save the jobs of 200 members of the cast and crew, which is part of the reason they decided to move forward with a spinoff.

The love/hate is mutual. #Roseanne

A post shared by Roseanne on ABC (@roseanneonabc) on May 3, 2018 at 12:32pm PDT

Roseanne Barr seems to have regrets about what she said previously on social media and has Tweeted her apologies and best wishes for her former cast and crew.

It seems ABC is trying to keep the momentum and revenue going that they received during the initial episodes of the “Roseanne” reboot. Do you think “The Conners” will be just as successful?

Thanks for joining us for the Roseanne-athon! Join us next week at 8|7c for an all new episode of #Roseanne !
