Jessica Eaves was minding her own business, grabbing a few essentials at the grocery store when a man walked past her. Two aisles over, she realized her wallet was missing.

Eaves found a way to resolve the situation without getting the authorities involved.

Instead of calling the police or alerting the store's manager, Eaves confronted the man when she spotted him on a crowded aisle.

She said to him, "I think you have something of mine. I'm gonna give you a choice. You can either give me my wallet and I'll forgive you right now, and I'll even take you to the front and pay for your groceries."

In the stroll seen (and read about) 'round the world, Duchess Kate and Prince William have finally settled on a stroller for their baby boy, Prince George. 

A $2,350 Silver Cross stroller to be exact, "the Rolls Royce of prams."

They're just like the rest of us, you guys.

Silver Cross, an England-based baby goods company, has been manufacturing baby prams for over 130 years and supplied the first baby carriage to George VI for Princess Elizabeth in 1913. 

"Silver Cross have provided royalty across the world with their prams and are delighted that the Duke and Duchess have chosen the premier British brand for Prince George" a representative of the company states.

The Royal Couple christened Prince George last week in a ceremony at St. James' Palace presided over by the Archbishop of Canterbury.

It might sound like something from a Hitchcock film, but people, this is real life. Move over fire ants, there's a new sheriff in town! 

Crazy ants, more specifically known as the Tawny crazy ants, a species native to Brazil and Argentina, are making their way across the southeastern United States. And they're taking out fire ant colonies and disrupting ecosystems in their process and they don't care who knows it.

They're like honey badgers. Except ants. They don't give a...

Crazy ants are an invasive species with the potential to altar the ecological balance of the United States. Where fire ants once flourished, they're being wiped out by this omnivorous South American ant. 

Less fire ants seems like a good thing, yes? Well, it's not.

If there was ever a story to make Chris Brown look slightly less bad, this might be it.

Four Mississippi teenagers attacked WWII veteran Lawrence E. "Shine" Thornton in his driveway and the 87-year-old man died from the injuries sustained in this brutal mugging.

Lawrence E. "Shine" Thornton, from Greenville, Mississippi, died two days after four young men shoved him to the ground to steal his wallet while he was in his own driveway.

His life, says Eric Scheiner, was "a story of hard work, overcoming adversity, belief in God and finding some success in doing what you love."

The accused, Terrance Morgan, 19; Edward Johnson, 19; Leslie Litt, 18; and Geblonski Murray, 18, have each been charged with capital murder and are being held without bond. They are also charged with robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery.

First there was the dad who made a stick figure costume for his toddler. Now there's the Hurst family from a small town in south Georgia. 

If you're looking for them on Halloween, you'll find them somewhere over the rainbow.

Toto, we're not in Kansas anymore! Oz the Great and Powerful has spoken!

Family Halloween Costume

Tucker Lanier, 13, suffers from Hunter Syndrome, a degenerative genetic condition, which has left him unable to walk long distances. To get around on Halloween, he uses a wheelchair, but instead of letting a wheelchair hamper his Halloween fun, his family uses it as a challenge to best themselves year after year.

"We probably throw around 100 ideas every year," says Jason Hurst. He continues, "We've always wanted to do the 'Wizard of Oz' and when the new movie came out, we thought a hot air balloon would be a lot easier."

In devastating news, a squirrel recently dropped his nut from atop a telephone pole when tragedy struck and a slight misstep sent his breakfast tumbling down.

Incredibly, a photographer was there to document his stunned reaction:

Poor Squirrel

To answer the obligatory question: Yes. This is somehow a real photo.

Ajeet Vikram, the photographer, said that the poor critter had just finished scurrying up the pole with his bounty at the moment of devastation - and disbelief.

The 27-year-old from India set out to take photos of the sunrise that day, but happened to zero in on the squirrel and capture his expression of abject terror.

DNA tests have confirmed that a 35-year-old Bulgarian Roma woman is the mother of the mysterious girl found in Greece and known only as Maria.

A genetic profile of Sasha Ruseva matched that of the girl.

Ruseva has said she gave birth to a baby girl four years ago while working as an olive picker, but gave her away because she was too poor to care for her.

The mother was living in Greece at the time.

Maria has been placed in temporary care since last week after authorities raided a Roma gypsy settlement in central Greece and discovered her there.

A cute baby, brand new and squishy, ready for cuddles and having its head sniffed rests in a bassinet making tiny baby grunts and coos. The bag containing the newborn's placenta is nearby!

Wait, what?

Yes, this is a real thing which people do. Lotus birthing, as it's called, is the practice of leaving a baby's umbilical cord and placenta attached until it falls off on its own, sometimes taking up to 10 days after birth.

Lotus birthing is a trend which is gaining ground among those seeking all-natural birth experiences. The practice, also called umbilical cord non-severance, was popular with early western European settlers in America.

The 1980s saw a resurgence of this trend, particularly among mothers who delivered their babies at home, and gave the trend the name "Lotus birth" to honor the link between the "preciousness of the placenta and the high esteem in which the Lotus is held in Hindu and Buddhist faiths."

A waiter at Carrabba's Italian Grill in Overland Park, Kansas didn't merely get stiffed on a tip by a couple of customers this week.

He was told that his sexuality would cause him to rot in Hell.

Anti-gay note

As reported by KMBC 9 News, the unnamed server went to pick up the bill from a meal after one of his tables cleared out, only to find a message scrawled on the back that read:

"Thank you for your service, it was excellent. That being said, we cannot in good conscience tip you, for your homosexual lifestyle is an affront to God.  May God have mercy on you."
