Post ideas for stupid lawsuits

OK, first off, I do not agree with the general feeling that everything is someone else's fault, and to sue at the drop of a hat. But by now, I'm sure everyone has heard of the woman who got 4 million from McDonald's for spilling hot coffee in her lap while driving. I was listening to someone yesterday about how they're going to sue Lowes and Home Depot for offering installation services when they are both retailers. My response to him was, "Are you for real?? Get a Life!!" So, on that note, here's one I made up. Let's take Burger King, McDonald's, etc., and have a class action law suit for false advertisement. I mean, you never get a sandwich that looks anything like the picture on tv, or the menu board for that matter. Hey, I'm tired, what can I say.

I hear that the manufacturer of the Bushmaster rifle that the Virginia sniper used to shoot all those people is being sued, so I think I will sue General Motors for providing an easy way to run over and kill hundreds of people. All I have to do is steer my Chevy straight into a big crowd of people and then blame GM for making it so easy. Maybe I can get several hundred million bucks that I can spend once I get out of the insane asylum a couple of weeks after the judge finds me incompetant. After all no one should be held accountable for their stupidity, it was because of their horrible childhood.

Guys

I heard this on the local FM station. Illegal immigrants are suing Immigration Canada for being deported. One guy got several M$ cause his wife couldn't move here after he did. Claims he can't move back cause he's too established here. Claims his life is ruined now. Claims for $10M and gets it. Another family was turned away and sued for "hurt feelings". They only got $70K. What the hell is wrong with judges. HONESTLY

I hired a guy ( "Bill" ) last summer to help pour the concrete and the assist with the framing for my garage. He asked to be paid in cash because he was collecting unemploment ins. It was only for a couple of hours a day so I paid him in cash.

As he was leaving one day he tripped over my mitre saw, which HE left in the way, and supposidly hurt his back. I get a call the next day from his wife asking how much I am going to pay him for his injury. 'Scuse me?

I called my lawyer and got his opinion. He told me to tell him I would give him 1k and then send a letter to the unemployment ins. agency so he would be charged with fraud for not claiming his earnings while working for me. I had witnesses that could verify I paid Bill in cash, so when I told him that, the looser decided to stop trying to get money from me.

People like "Bill" are what happens when 1ST. cousins marry and have children.

I would have just kicked Bill's *** , and gave him something to sue over. And then told him about calling the unemployment agency.

People like bill are the problem in the world today... Someone we knew took a flight into the states on an american airline a few years ago... He cut himself and notified the stewerdess about the sharp edge on the seat... She looked at him and said, "SO WHAT your gunna sue now?"

All that he wanted was to let them know so that it could get fixed...

I coulda sued over my knee... and I wanted to after the doctor was such a dick but my mom refused to let me.. (I mean my knee was red and swolen and I said it didn't look right and told him all the pain but he said it was fine, Started bleeding puss and blood the next day, went into the hospital and found out I had a post op infection, he then got mad at me for not calling his office)

Doctor negligence, tell me about it! When my wife and I had our daughter, the anesthiologist went to put the needle in her back for the epideral. He missed, she shot off the table screaming. He proceeds to tell her if she's gonna act that way, he's gonna leave. He was about 5'-8", 140. I'm 6'-2", 230. I looked him in the eye and said if can get by me, then leave. He finished. But to this day, she has problems in her lower back. The hospital even sent in an administrator that night, woke my wife up, ( I was not there), and had her sign a release form. Man, wish I was there.

I hear about bank robber braking his leg while while leaving the bank. Triped over something. Now he is sueing the bank for 10M. (They say he only had 50K in the bag to begin with).

I think i'll sue my parents for not making me rich when i was a kid.

Have you ever looked at your mattress tag? about removing the tag.

Anyone hear about McDonalds getting sued for the french fries? Vegitarians are suing McDonalds for false advertisement about their fries being "vegitarian" and if you can prove you have eaten McDonalds french fries and are a proven vegitarian then you can get cash. How are you supposed to prove this stuff?????? Steve

people are idiots, basically.
the matress tag says (if you bother to read the fine print) that it can't be taken off by anyone EXCEPT the consumer. so you can take it off, you're the consumer. the fry thing is 'cause the fries were fried in lard or something like that, so they're not strictly vegeterian. sorry about the hard luck, stoned, poncho... glad ya got things worked out, cet.

hk, you are missing the point, they said they used veggie oil and they used lard, so little fat animals gave up their fat ***** for those fries.

Your right I am missin the point...Some vegeterians are that way because they hate planrs, some just don't want to hurt animals and some just do it because they can. I love animals as much as the next animal, but if they are going to get made into chops use the fat too, at least its not going to waist. I don't understand vegitareans, but I do know they taste the best, lickity smackity <img src="graemlins/drool.gif" border="0" alt="[drool]" /> Gimmie a 3" thick slab of meat prefferably still bloody so I can sop it up with a biscuit. you see now I'm hungry DOH!

Hey Croz, I going to send you an e-mail in a few, checkit!
