Let's look back in time at 1994 for a minute here. A woman sues McDonald's because the coffee was too hot. Really? Unfortunate, yes...the restaurant making hot coffee...inevitable. If it wasn't hot she would have complained that it was cold. At what point did the woman drop the coffee in her lap....and at what point did that deem the restaurant the fault?
Fast forward: 2002. A man hires a lawyer and files a suit against the four big fast food chains. He claims he is obese because of their fatty foods. Okay, seriously, I am obese....it's my own fault. I do not eat right and I do not exercise right, it is my responsibility. I made me this way. I am not out getting sue happy trying to get rich over it.
It never ceases to amaze me sometimes what goes on here in the land of the free. I know people that can't wait to see that "Caution: wet floor" sign so they can take advantage of a lawsuit. I also know someone else that got a crack in the front windshield of their car, then drove around forever looking for a truck full of rocks so they could call the 800-number on the back to get a new windshield.
C'mon, America, at what point does it become our responsibility? It is our fault if we are lazy, it is our fault if we are materialistic, and it is our fault if some of us are money hungry. Let's take responsibility, I know I am!!
