New Income Maker: Sue someone because you are Stupid!!
A friend of mine, (who works in Risk Management for an insurance company) sent me the winning stupid lawsuit for this year: This was her e-mail message of the details of the lawsuit:
This year's runaway First Place Stella Award winner was Mrs. Merv Grazinski, of Oklahoma City , Oklahoma ,who purchased a new 32-foot Winnebago motor home. On her first trip home, from an OU football game, having driven on to the freeway, she set the cruise control at 70 mph and calmly left the driver's seat to go to the back of the Winnebago to make herself a sandwich. Not surprisingly, the motor home left the freeway, crashed and overturned. Also not surprisingly, Mrs. Grazinski sued Winnebago for not putting in the owner's manual that she couldn't actually leave the driver's seat while the cruise control was set. The Oklahoma jury awarded her, are you sitting down, $1,750,000 PLUS a new motor home. Winnebago actually changed their manuals as a result of this suit, just in case Mrs. Grazinski has any relatives who might also buy a motor home.
Can you believe it?
Of course, (you saw it coming, didn't you?): Here are my TOP TEN thoughts about this:
1. Thank God no one in my family has bred with this woman or any of her family (to my knowledge)...of course there is this ONE cousin I am wondering about....(No, Jessie, if you are reading this, not YOU!)
2. Holy Shit
3. What did she drink (or smoke) at the OU football game? And, does she have any left to share?
4. Just curious...what kind of sandwich did she make? (I am hungry right now, can you tell?)
5. Who was on that jury? And, thank God none of them have bred with anyone in our family (to my knowledge)...of course there is this ONE cousin I am wondering about...(again, Jess, not YOU!)
6. Should they put in the newly-revised-after-this-dumbass-lawsuit that a driver should BREATHE while driving? (Because evidently you gotta really spell things out for this Chick).
7. What is she going to do with the windfall money from the lawsuit? Because if she is THAT dumb, I want to contact her and sell her, oh...I don't know....the Golden Gate Bridge???
8. She was awarded another new motor home by Winnebago? Why? So she can once again endanger the lives of everyone, everywhere she is going to drive it? They are just as nuts as she is....
9. What is her address? Because I don't want to go anywhere NEAR where she is living or driving.
10. Couldn't the jury just awarded the money to the Stupid-People-Who-Evidently-Need-a-lot-of-help-to-function-in-the-World Program? (She MUST be a member?)
And we wonder why our auto insurance is so expensive every year!!!!!
