Winemaker Tim Whitrow was spending a pretty typical day out in the vineyard checking on his grapes when he left his car door open so his dog could come and go from the air conditioning as she pleased.

When he got back in the car he had a furry passenger, but it wasn't the dog they he was expecting.


When Whitrow turned around and looked into his back seat, there was a koala chilling back there, presumably enjoying the AC!

Koalas' thick fur and dark gray skin means that they don't handle high temperatures well, and they have even been known to suffer heat stroke and heat exhaustion.

Whitrow couldn't help but snap a selfie with the koala before he attempted to remove it from the vehicle.

Whitrow said on Facebook that it wasn't easy to evict his unwanted passenger.

"As I was moving to another part of the vineyard I noticed that someone else was also in the car enjoying the A/C. It took a fair bit of convincing to get the feisty little fella out."

Whitrow got a pretty fascinating video of the little guy:


His dog Maisie was quite intrigued by the Koala too:



Facebook loved the fuzzy intruder and the way Tim handled it:

It would seem that getting unwanted, mildly violent, koala visitors is a theme in Australia.

Many non-Australians were quite surprised at the koala's behavior.

Working with dogs is a field like few others. Though a job at a veterinary clinic, animal shelter, or training class may have its moments of tragedy and frustration, the unique hilarity that dogs bring is a real treat.

We're all aware television shows are fake and, heck, even the ones pretending to be real have a certain level of fabrication permeating throughout. That's not why we watch, though, we watch because we want to be invested into believing in a show's characters and their journeys. So when a character is mysteriously removed from a show with zero explanation it can leave a bad taste in our mouths that never goes away.

There's something quite wonderful about finding a loophole and taking advantage of it... especially when you're broke. (Trust me, it could mean the difference between surviving and well, not.)

When I was really poor, for example, I used to go to a Burger King to get cheap burgers with what little money I had. The food was filling and helped tide me over. I eventually found a glitch on the app that allowed me to add two extra burgers to my order. Trust me, it saved me on my worst days. (As you can imagine, I am really sick of fast food now that I'm much more financially stable.)

After Redditor Thym3Travr asked the online community, "What loophole did you exploit mercilessly?" people shared their stories.
