The mother of a Taiwanese dentist sued her son for breach of contract after he refused to live up to the end of a deal they’d struck when he was 20. She’d pay for the son’s dental school, and in return, he would pay her 60 percent of the net profit he brought home until the sum reached about $1.7?million. Taiwan’s supreme court sided with the mother.

A practice in Jefferson City, Missouri, was burgled by a sword-wielding man. Luckily, the office was closed at the time. When the practice opened Monday morning, an employee noticed the cash box was out of place, open and empty. After reviewing security footage, bewildered employees and confused police watched a man walk through the front door with a sword, steal $70 from the cash box and pocket ... a handful of highlighters.

And here you thought that a couple of no-shows were ruining your day!
