What up Central PA! My name is Vijay and I'm the night guy at Variety. I was born and raised in the DC Area, Takoma Park to be exact. Feel free to call and say hello!
Back in January, a 62-year-old man from Wales named Paul Marshallsea was on vacation in Australia, when a SHARK swam near some kids at the beach. So he GRABBED the shark and dragged it away. The video was posted online, and he was called a hero . . . but he was supposed to be on SICK LEAVE from the charity where he works, not on vacation. So they fired him.
Paul's wife was ALSO working at the charity, and ALSO out sick during the Australian vacation. So she's been fired too.
