Man Signs His ID With Drawings Of Cat Heads As A Joke—And It Comes Back To Bite Him 3 Years Later 😹
u/bradimal/Reddit

Sometimes we make decisions that seem hilarious in the moment but end up being not so cute in the real world.


That is exactly what happened when Reddit user bradimal decided that, when he got his new license in the state of Washington, he would sign his signature as three cat heads. Literally. He drew three cat heads and by some miracle it passed through the system and he received his license with the hysterical signature.

Things weren't as funny a few years later. Here's how it all went down:

"In 2015 I had to renew my license and thought it would be funny to do cat heads as my signature, so I did. For the past 3 years I just forgot about it unless I had to show my ID and they pointed it out. They would laugh and say, 'haha I can't believe they let you do that!' and I would be like, 'yeah, yeah, yeah, let me in the bar now.' I have always signed my name with my regular signature/scribble, not cat heads. This hasn't been a problem until today when I had to sign my mortgage papers. The signing agent looked at my ID and shook his head, he was not amused. I tried to explain that 2015 Brad never imagined he'd own a house. So the dude has to call the title company headquarters and explain the situation all while my real estate agent is laughing her ass off. I had to sign 3 cat heads over 30 times today. Here is pic http://imgur.com/I6olEcY and here is my ID http://imgur.com/xmOmU5n TL;DR had to sign all my mortgage papers with my legal ID signature, which is 3 cat heads."

When we set a goal to put some money aside to allocate for luxury items, vacations, or just for an emergency, we do our best not to waver.

Consumers will typically wait for an item to go on sale, but sometimes, they make exceptions and spend the extra money on something that is worth the quality.

So, just what are these items or experiences that customers don't mind shelling out their hard-earned cash for?

People Describe How They Survived Near Death Experiences

As morbid as it is, death is the inevitable yin to life's yang.

The inevitable end of our mortality looms ahead for all of us, but hopefully it's not for a long time.

That doesn't mean there are close calls along the way.

Not everyone is fortunate, but there are the lucky few who somehow managed to cheat death and lived to talk about their close calls.

We've all heard some conspiracy theories about certain businesses, most of which are outrageously false.

That laundromats are simply a facade for shadier practices (including, not so ironically, money laundering) or that the Coca-Cola company invented "New Coke" with the express purpose of improving sales on original Coke.

But every now and then, we can't help but wonder what really goes on behind closed doors in certain professions.

And are eager to hear all the juicy tidbits from people working in that industry.
