A Man Tries to Buy a Meal For a Cop . . . and Is Busted For DUI

Trying TOO HARD can be way worse than not trying at all, folks. A cop was in the drive-thru line at a fast food restaurant in Bedford, Nova Scotia, Canada around 2:00 A.M. yesterday. And a 42-year-old guy in front of him in line told the cashier he wanted to buy the cop's meal.

The cop got out of his car to thank the guy and tell him that he couldn't accept the offer . . . but when he got to the guy's car, he noticed he was CLEARLY inebriated.

So he gave the guy a breathalyzer test . . . and it came back more than twice the legal limit.

The guy was arrested for impaired operation . . . and also for driving with a suspended license and operating an unregulated vehicle.

Why Are You Single? Here Are the Top Five Personality and Physical Traits People Say Hold Them Back

According to a new survey, two-thirds of single people say they blame THEMSELVES for not being in a relationship. And the rest of the survey really backs that up . . . insecurities are REAL, and they're EVERYWHERE.

The survey asked people what personality traits and physical traits of theirs they specifically blame for holding them back. And here are the most common answers . . .

For men, the top five personality traits are: I'm not outgoing enough . . . I have low self-esteem . . . I'm too polite . . . I'm too boring . . . and I'm too nerdy.

For women, the personality traits are: I'm not outgoing enough . . . I have low self-esteem . . . I'm too boring . . . I'm too intelligent (yikes) . . . and I'm too outspoken.

For men, the top five physical traits holding them back are: My abs aren't toned enough . . . I'm too fat . . . my chest isn't toned enough . . . my arms aren't toned enough . . . and I'm too short.

For women, the physical traits are: I'm too fat . . . my abs aren't toned enough . . . my arms aren't toned enough . . . my legs aren't toned enough . . . and my nose is too big.

One more thing: 24% of women and 15% of men say there's NO physical trait holding them back.

Today Is National Men Make Dinner Day . . . and National Cook For Your Pets Day

Now that Halloween is over, we can focus on the next holidays that matter, like . . . um . . . these two?

There are TWO random national holidays today: National Men Make Dinner Day . . . and National Cook For Your Pets Day.

Coincidence? Or were those scheduled at the same time because people have such low expectations for men's cooking that they're preemptively planning to serve it to their dog? We can't say for sure.
