Then a lawyer convinces someone that they should sue MacDonald's because there wasn't a warning on the coffee cup informing the customer that their coffee was HOT and could potentially burn you....
I remember a similar case a few years back... can't remember if it was MacDonalds though.... But just that explination from the lawyer would also validate one good bitch slap accross the face too....
I mean seriously... how much of a retard can you be to not know that the coffee you are buying and about to drink will be hot and if you spill it on you, chances are it's going to burn or at the very least.... hurt.
If people can't figure out a simple thing like Coffee = Hot.... then perhaps they shouldn't have a drivers' licnece in the first place to drive to get the coffee which they don't realize is hot..... and if they can't drive with a cup of coffee without spilling and burning it all over themselves, then they shouldn't be driving to a drive-tru to get one.
People are idiots, and lawyers are enablers of these idiots to become even greater idiots.... it's a vicious cycle.
Lawyers work harder than anyone else in any society to discourage persona responsibility from Conrad Black to the lady who sued MacDonald's in the coffee incident I just mentioned. We look for excuses to avoid accepting responsibility for our actions and lawyers make fortunes reinforcing the idea that we all as individuals are victims!
And that is why I should be ruler of the world.... I'd set them all friggin straight to the point they wouldn't have anything logical to defend their actions and then I'd send their asses to jail for being idiots and wasting court time on stupid things which were their own responsibility.
Fk'n retarded politically correct world..... Yeah I know what I just said.
