The Pizza Inn restaurant in Greenville, South Carolina, has a diverse staff which includes several employees with special needs. When owner Amanda Cartagine was approached by an irate patron demanding she hang a sign to warn customers of this fact, she decided to oblige him... though her sign might not have been exactly what he had in mind.


Cartagine ended up hanging a sign on the front door, as the angry customer insisted, but it said something he probably hadn't expected:

We are proud to be an equal opportunity employer and hire ALL of God's children!

According to KCTV5, the customer had been offended by an interaction with one of the restaurant's employees who is autistic. The employee's mother commented that working at the Pizza Inn has been an overwhelmingly positive experience for him and that he had no negative feelings about the encounter.

Cartagine is proud to employ fantastic workers who happen to have special needs:

Out of my 16 crew members, kitchen crew members, 10 of them [have] special needs. And I'm proud of that. I'm proud of the crew and the work they do. They do an amazing job

One mother of a special needs Pizza Inn employee, Amy Parham, commented on the angry customer:

He needs to be tolerant of those individuals who have to struggle and deal with their own issues that they can't help.


People all over the country were cheering for Cartagine and her sign online!









Cartagine hopes that, in the future, people realize that special needs employees are "a unique group that everyone should tap into, because they will bless you more than you will ever know."

Conspiracy theories are beliefs that there are covert powers that be changing the course of history for their own benefits. It's how we see the rise of QAnon conspiracies and people storming the capital.

Why do people fall for them? Well some research has looked into the reasons for that.

The Association for Psychological Science published a paper that reviewed some of the research:

"This research suggests that people may be drawn to conspiracy theories when—compared with nonconspiracy explanations—they promise to satisfy important social psychological motives that can be characterized as epistemic (e.g., the desire for understanding, accuracy, and subjective certainty), existential (e.g., the desire for control and security), and social (e.g., the desire to maintain a positive image of the self or group)."

Whatever the motivations may be, we wanted to know which convoluted stories became apart of peoples consciousness enough for them to believe it.

I hate ghosts, even if it's Casper. My life is already stressful enough. I don't need to creeped out by spirits from the beyond. Shouldn't they be resting and basking in the glow of the great beyond instead of menacing the rest of us?

The paranormal seems to be consistently in unrest, which sounds like death isn't any more fun or tranquil than life. So much for something to look forward to.

Some ghosts just like to scare it up. It's not always like "Ghosthunters" the show.

Redditor u/Murky-Increase4705 wanted to hear about all the times we've faced some hauntings that left us shook, by asking:

Reddit, what are your creepy encounters with something that you are convinced was paranormal?

A lot of talk going on about women's bodies, isn't there?

Not necessarily with women front and center as part of the conversation, unfortunately.
