“Wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity for a kindness.” – Lucius Annaeus Seneca
Becoming a private investigator seems like a pretty cool career move. Essentially, you get paid for doing what 40 percent of psycho ex-girlfriends do – stalk people, hack into their Facebook accounts, and catch them someone in a compromising act while presenting them with a powerpoint presentation.
That all being said, I’m not exactly sure what P.I.’s are actually legally allowed to do. A lot of them are ex-cops, so they are familiar with the perimeters of their job description, but that doesn’t mean they don’t push boundaries, sometimes. At least, I assume they do based on how movies and the I.D. channel depict them.
Turns out, it’s not nearly as glamorous as the average person is led to believe. In fact, when you talk to real-life private investigators, it can be quite boring. It’s mostly just sitting in your car for hours on end drinking coffee and listening to e-books.
But every once in awhile, something scandalous and exciting happens. Here, P.I.’s divulge some interesting stories regarding their experiences.
If you have access to a computer or smartphone and have had sleepless nights, chances are you’ve spent at least one of those nights pursuing the good, the bad, and the ugly that Amazon has to offer.
Amazon is popular because you can literally find anything you want on there (ok, maybe not drugs or unicorns, but I haven’t looked hard enough, so I can’t say that with certainty.)
But seriously, you can buy all your basic needs at the click of a button. This is both incredibly exciting for you and incredibly horrifying for your wallet.
As you slide down Amazon’s slippery metaphoric slope, you will inevitably find some of the weirdest items up for grabs like a slicer specifically meant to cut bananas (cuz we all know how challenging that sort of feat can be) or a Trump wig which is great for Halloween and scaring your children.
But you can also find some amaze-balls products that you wish you had been smart enough to come up with yourself. Here’s a list of products on Amazon with a huuuuuge cult following, so brilliant you’ll be wishing you came up with them.
Losing a son to gun violence is hard enough. Forgiving his murderer is a whole new level of strength. Could you do what this lady did?
