Work-at-home parents will definitely relate to the situation – you’re trying to get some job done but your kids simply wouldn’t quit interrupting you. It can be funny and annoying at the same time but that’s the harsh reality of being a home-based professional.

That’s why it’s absolutely not surprising that the interview video of Professor Robert Kelly immediately went viral.

This serious BBC interview took an amusing turn when Prof. Robert Kelly’s kids began entering the room.

In the said clip, we can see the political scientist being interviewed via Skype by BBC when, all of a sudden, things went hilariously wrong as his two kids started to enter the room one by one.

An Asian woman can then be seen flying into the scene to get the kids out of the area.

Clearly, this woman was the true hero of the scenario.

It is unfortunate, however, that many netizens, including some media outlets, who saw the clip and reacted to it immediately assumed that Kim Jung-A, the woman, was the nanny – when in fact, she is actually the kid’s mother and Kelly’s wife.

Not a nanny but a mother and a wife!

Naturally, this sparked a debate about racism on social media.

One Twitter user said, “If you assume she is the nanny you are racist”. Another wrote, “The fact that you assume she’s a nanny and not their mother is stereotypical, racist and messed up.”

Meanwhile, Korean viewers immediately knew Kim was the mother since the older child seemed to say “Why? What’s wrong?” and “Mummy, why?”

So how did the Kelly family react to all the attention they’re getting and about the racism issue?

Well, its a good thing that both Robert Kelly and Kim Jung-A were such good sports that they just decided to laugh about the whole debacle.

Indeed, working from home is not for the faint of heart!

Ladies, how would you react if you received a creepy note like this?

Among young people, losing your purse or wallet during a night out really isn’t a very uncommon experience. It can really happen when you’re busy having fun with friends and/or all wasted.

In most cases, hoping to get it back is pointless and so you have to go make the needed calls to cancel your cards and request replacements instead. There are, however, some who get lucky and become exceptions to the rule.

While it can be really easy to get into a fight on the road these days, it’s really something that you’d better avoid in the first place. Road rage is real and it could lead into trouble (or even accident) if you’re not careful.

A recent footage taken in Daytona Beach, Florida shows us exactly that. The short clip shows the shocking moment when an angry driver approached a 4x4 vehicle, punches and smashes its window with his bare fist, and attacks its driver with a pepper spray.

The attacker smashed the other driver’s car window..
