Auntie Jen, I love you

I woke up a little after five ayem this morning. I don't know why. Maybe I was cold. After the ball game last night I started to think there was actually some good in this world. Then I read This story. Sadly, this is nor a fake news article from The Onion. It does reaffirm why I decided I could never be a lawyer though. Most attorneys are money grubbing assholes. Not you, Mr. Attorney looking to sue for defamation of character, but lots of your colleagues fit that label.

Through the comments on the news site that ran the article I found a short documentary about the old lady who sued McDonald's after she spilled coffee in her crotch. Yes, she was burned badly. My opinion did not change. The verdict was horse crap. The old lady claimed in an interview that "it was not about the money" and all she wanted was for the fast food chain to lower the temperature of the coffee they served. If that was true, then that is what she would have demanded in her lawsuit.

Anyway, suing an eight year-old orphan because he was too exuberant in hugging you is just pretty much the definition of a real witch. One commenter was right; in this case the "A" in aunt should be replaced with a "C".

I thought there were laws to protect kids against this kind of crap.

Sounds like lawyers are taking a cue from King Bummer. Laws? ...We don't need no stinking laws.

A lot of people don't have the full story on this.

First off, the broken wrist happened when the boy was nine, he is now twelve so that dates the incident to about three years ago. His mother died last year but his father is still with him so he is NOT an orphan. He is motherless.

(Children of your aunts and uncles are your first cousins. Children of your first cousins are your first cousins once removed, meaning they are one generation distant from you. Children of your cousins once removed are your aunt/uncles grandchildren and are your cousins twice removed.)

I'm not what the cousin rant had to do with anything.

So she is trying to grub after insurance. Still does not make it right. Assholes like her are the ones that drive up my premiums and your premiums. Do you understand how business works?

I read nothing in that link that changes my perception. Piece of shit as a human. Her attorney should be kicked in the nuts for filing the lawsuit.

Just waiting for one of my students to sue me after I give them a pat on the back for a job well done.
