Re­hab cen­tre opened for Ama­zon ad­dicts

Woman calls po­lice after spot­ting whales

The Star (Jamaica) - - NEWS THE WEEKEND STAR -

Awoman called 911 on a fam­ily boat trip be­cause a pod of hump­back whales ap­peared in the sea.

The Amer­i­can fam­ily mem­ber called the po­lice while they were on a boat ride on Wash­ing­ton’s Puget Sound — a no­to­ri­ous whale-watch­ing spot — be­cause the hump­backs wanted to say hello.

The hi­lar­i­ous video was taken by Dar­ren Luc­ciana, who as­sures his pan­icked fam­ily: “All right, we’re all right, calm down,” while a woman can be heard pan­ick­ing in the back­ground.

The lady shouts: “Oh my God, it’s go­ing right un­der us, you guys!”

Luc­ciana replies: “Re­lax, he’s check­ing us out ... they’re not go­ing to hurt you. Just re­lax, he’s right un­der us.

“Look at this, you guys, you’ll never see this again.”

The video shows the aquatic mam­mals go­ing around and un­der­neath the small boat.

The woman then says: “I’m call­ing 911.”

She’s then heard re­lay­ing in­for­ma­tion on the call, stat­ing: “I’m out at Puget Sound, and there are three grey whales right un­der­neath our boat, and I’m afraid that we might get flipped over. I’m re­ally scared.”

As the whales make an ex­cit­ing dis­play of dives, Lu­cianna says: “That was amaz­ing.”

Are­hab cen­tre is open­ing for on­line-shop­ping ad­dicts to save smaller high-street busi­nesses.

The world’s first re­hab clinic for self-con­fessed Ama­zon ad­dicts has opened in the United King­dom fol­low­ing new re­search by fintech com­pany iZet­tle, which has found one in three Bri­tons is ad­dicted to shop­ping on­line for goods.

The one-of-a-kind ther­apy cen­tre al­lows vis­i­tors to re­peat­edly flat­ten card­board boxes as a form of stress relief and visit the ‘Shock Room’, which fea­tures im­ages of the UK’s des­o­late high streets in the fu­ture.

Co-founder of floristry busi­ness Rebel Rebel, Athena Dun­can said: “We need our high streets and shops so we can ex­pe­ri­ence real things and touch them, taste them and feel them. In 10 years’ time when we turn round and there are no high streets left, it will be too late.

“At our work­shops, you will ex­pe­ri­ence the fun of play­ing with flow­ers and cre­at­ing some­thing beau­ti­ful. We hope this will in­spire you to ex­plore your lo­cal shops and dis­cover what it is to be real. Sup­port your lo­cal shops now be­cause we’re worth it!”

The ‘Giant Corp Re­hab Cen­tre’ is free to at­tend for any­one will­ing to ad­mit their ad­dic­tion to one-click buys.
