At some point we'll stop freaking out about boobs, right? Please say yes.

Bobbi Bockoras, a breastfeeding mother in Alleghany, PA, is filing a suit against her employer Saint Gobain Verallia, a glass-bottling factory, alleging repeated discrimination and harassment because she needs time during the day to be able to express breastmilk for her infant daughter.

The claims against her employer are so appalling her legal team has taken up Bockoras' case pro-bono.

Provisions of the Affordable Care Act in effect since March of 2010 state that employers must provide nursing mothers with private, non-bathroom locations in which to pump. Saint Gobain Verallia first directed Bockoras to pump in the bathroom.

Then directed her to their First Aid room where she was heckled by male coworkers.

In some of the strangest parenting news we'll hear all day, a New York City father was deemed inept for refusing to give in to his 5-year-old's demands for McDonald's. 

The child threw a tantrum and the dad delivered an ultimatum: Choose another, healthier place to eat or don't eat at all. You can guess what the 5-year old chose, can't you.

What is it with parents these days wanting to feed their kids less junky food? Sheesh! Just give in to the siren song of the Happy Meal, Dad!

David E. Schorr put his foot down on October 30th and refused to take his son to McDonald's "because his son had been eating too much junk food."

Schorr, after being labeled "inept," calls himself "not a very strict father who rarely refuses his child McDonald's." And the one time he sticks to his guns this happens.

"Shut up. I mean that in the nicest way, but shut up!" Those are the words of a teacher in Villa Rica, Georgia to her classroom of nine-year-old fourth graders. "Get out of my face before I machete chop you."

Who does this woman think she is? Michonne from The Walking Dead? Even Michonne has a soft spot for kids!

Talk about needing to take a time-out! Yikes! 

Isaac Robinson sensed something was wrong when his son didn't seem okay even though he said school had been "fine" that day. After probing for more information, he learned that the boy had an issue with the way his teacher spoke to her class. 

We have an issue with it, too, young man. You're most certainly not alone.

Having trouble with your Lululemon yoga pants? Your thighs might be the problem. At least according to the brand's founder, Chip Wilson, in an interview with Bloomberg television. 

Even his wife gave him the side-eye for his douchey statements, and when your wife gives you the side-eye on national television, you know it's bad, right?

We don't need to hear her thoughts to see the good ol' "WTF" happening inside her brain.

This guy clearly studied at the Abercrombie & Fitch School of Customer Alienation. The company came under fire as recently as August for shunning their "plus-sized" customers. You know, the customers who wear sizes 10 and 12, which are the largest sizes the company offers at all.

(Newsflash: The average dress size of American women is a size 14. Average. Meaning middle. High school math class called. You failed, Chip Wilson.)

The photo was deemed "immoral" by school administrators.

Laraine Cook Facebook Photo

"I don't feel that it's an immoral photo, and that's what the termination is based on," Cook told Local 8 News in an interview regarding the controversy.

The photo shows Cook and Harrison in bathing suits at a lake.

Harrison, who is a football coach at Pocatello High School, the same institution, was "reprimanded" for his involvement in the photo, but not fired.

Cook said the reason her fiance wasn't fired is because she was the one who put the photo to Facebook. In any case, she plans to fight the decision.

The super typhoon known as Haiyan made its way through the Philippines on Friday, blowing through 36 provinces and featuring winds of over 235 miles per hour.

Moreover, officials estimate that 70 percent of the structures in some areas have been destroyed.

"People are walking like zombies looking for food," Jenny Chu, a medical student in Leyte, told Reuters. "It's like a movie."

Connie McCallister, a Wausau, Wisconsin woman who was 16 when she disappeared more than nine years ago, has been found living in Mexico.

Sources say she could return home as early as Thanksgiving.

McCallister, now 25, disappeared with her then 22-year-old boyfriend on August 15, 2004, when she was an honor-roll student at Athens High School.

Her aunt, Florence Volzka, said the boyfriend drugged her to get her to Mexico, and that at one point, she was badly beaten and treated at a hospital.

Someone helped her get a new identity, she added.

McCallister got involved with a man who abused her, Volzka said, then found a good man whom she ended up marrying. She now has three young daughters.

Forget the old saying "one foot in the grave." This Brazilian man's whole body was placed in one, only he was not yet deceased as previously believed.

After being buried alive, he attempted to claw his way out, succeeding to the point where he got someone's attention in a scene straight out of a horror film.

According to reports, a woman was at a cemetery in Sao Paulo's Ferraz de Vasconcelos when she heard odd noises and saw some dirt moving near a grave.

That's when she spotted a man, buried alive, trying to pull himself to freedom.

"I was terrified to see this man who I thought was dead, trying to get out of the grave," the woman recalled later, according to multiple local reports.

The woman notified authorities, who arrived to dig out the rest of the man's body; he'd already managed to free his head and arms from the ground.
