Blame Whos Obesity Child
Oh Boy, this really fires me up. As FarSeer would say,
Rant On: This is one thing that I am ashamed of, that happens way too often in the USA, this stupid, silly, money hungry,suing of large corporations. Like the woman who sued McDonalds, wasn't it, because she put a cardboard cup full of boiling hot coffee between her legs and then drove out of the drive-up window and burned her self. What is the height of stupidity is the courts ruled in her favor! Man sakes alive. Now look where this has gone.
Now for these parents to sue McDonalds because their children are obese. Taking the parental responsibilities and foisting it onto a business!!
It is the parents responsibility what the child eats or doesn't eat. I think someone should charge the parents with abuse and neglect. Abuse for overfeeding this child and neglect for NOT feeding him/her nutritious food.
When is this going to stop? Shifting the blame onto others by way of frivolous suits?
Closer to my home, actually it happened right here. Several years ago a local lawyer sued the local JC Penny store. He bought a three pack of their store brand of briefs. Went back to the courthouse, went into the restroom and put on one of the briefs. Then he went into the courtroom after the lunch break and continued with defending his client. After court recessed, he went out to dinner, got home rather late and went to bed.
In the morning when he showered he discovered that he had a blister from the "inspected by" sticker that was stuck on the brief. He never checked for any - thus he didn't remove them.
Well, this blister prevented him from performing his conjugal duties(rights?) for several months. At least that is what he claimed in his suit. What fries me is, he won the case! He is no longer practicing law in this county. The locals all believe like I do, If he was so stupid as to Not look for the little stickers in the new clothes AND then make it public that it actually caused a sore, and where it caused the sore, well, I sure don't want him defending me in the court room. I want the Attorney that he hired!
OK Rant Off :)
