Man Gets Hit On By His Female Boss, Turns Her Down, & Gets Fired.. Hello Lawsuit!
A hunky PR firm employee is suing the company for firing him because he claims his female boss and a co-worker sexually harassed him.
He was told he was doing a good job but was let go from his $35,000 a year job, even after just being promoted.
He says one of the co-founders of the company began flirting with him after he went to her birthday party with other co-workers.
She forcibly touched his abs, massaged his arms, and constantly told him how ‘sexy' he was.
He says another co-worker also got in on the harassment by sending him a text asking when they were "going to have our bang sesh?"
He complained about the harassment, telling the CEO he was uncomfortable and he wanted it to stop.
It didn't stop, and instead he was given more work and more negative feedback. He was called a ‘hater that needed to be removed' in front of other employees.
He was fired, and three days later he filed a lawsuit and he could get as much as seven figures if he wins.

Update: Couple That Found $10 Million In Rare Coins Owes IRS Almost Half
The California couple that found $10 million worth of rare coins on their property may end up having to give the IRS almost half.
They found over 1,400 coins from 1847-1894 in near mint condition while out for a walk on their property.
A 1969 federal court ruling says a "treasure trove" is taxable the year it's discovered at fair market value.
That means about 47% would go to state and federal tax.
The couple could fight the tax saying it was there when they bought the property.
Nutrition Label Makeover
For the first time in two decades we may see a redesign of our nutrition labels.
First Lady Michelle Obama and the Food and Drug Administration have unveiled a proposed new label . The goal is to make the labels bigger and easier to understand.
The biggest change is making the calorie number quite large compared to the rest of the nutrition facts.
Companies will also be made to make their serving sizes more accurate to what people actually eat and not what is simply suggested.
There have been years of research that went into the nutrition facts redesign - which you can see a side by side comparison with the current nutrition label here:

New App Lets Guys Autotext Their Girlfriend
BroApp is the "clever relationship wingman" app.
It lets guys send pre-programmed text messages to their wives or girlfriends so that they can hang out with their boys uninterrupted.
The app was founded by two Australian guys who got inspired after they both realized they weren't spending enough time with their girlfriends because of a long work day. They created a demo BroApp just for their use that sent a single daily check-in message and it was well-received by their girlfriends.
Here's how BroApp works: A guy can select pre-programmed texts to send to his girlfriend, but app users are encouraged to either edit those, or write their own, original versions. Then he sets the time and date to send the text and the app does the rest.
There are also some built in precautionary safety features: the app knows the woman's WiFi so she won't get an awkward text if the guy who pre-programmed the message is at her house. It will also cancel a scheduled message if either member of the couple recently called or texted the other. And just in case a girl wants a peek at someone's BroApp, she's put on "girlfriend safety lock down" and misdirected to a fake list of gifts the guy is fake-planning on buying her.
The app is available for Android users and an Apple version is coming soon.
Man Complains McDonalds Only Gave Him One Napkin, Hello $1,5 Million Lawsuit
A California man is suing McDonald's for $1.5 million because he says he only got one napkin with his meal.
The man claims he was stiffed on napkins at the Mickey D's in Pacoima,California after ordering a Quarter Pounder Deluxe.
When he went up to the counter to ask for more, he was rudely rejected by the manager, who insisted he already got some.
The man, who is Black, said that maybe he should have gone to Jack-in-the-Box instead, and claims that the Mexican American manager then got racist and mumbled something about "you people."
He then emailed the general manager to complain, claiming that he couldn't work because of the "undue mental anguish" of the incident, and he was insultingly offered free burgers in return.
