I love this country but one thing I really find absolutely ridiculous are those lawsuits…Someone trips over a sand toy in a park, breaks his nail and all of a sudden there is a twenty million lawsuit!!!! (WARNING: this is a hypothetical case. Please do not try to duplicate that).
Here is an email that my friend sent me the other day. UNBELIEVABLE!!!! Just wait until you get to #1…..
CZ: Miluji Ameriku ale jednu vec, kterou tezce snasim jsou nesmyslne soudni procesy!!! Nekdo zakopne v parku o hracku na pisek, zlomi si nehet a je z toho 20 milionovy soud (UPOZORNENI: Nesnazte se tuto hypotetickou situaci prosim duplikovat. Dekuji)! To neni mozne!! Jen pockejte, az si prectete, co mi poslala jedna ma kamaradka. A POCKEJTE, az si prectete cislo 1:
For those unfamiliar with these awards, they are
named after 81-year-old Stella Liebeck who spilled hot coffee on herself and
successfully sued the McDonald’s in New Mexico , where she purchased coffee.

inside a furniture store. The store owners were understandably surprised by
the verdict, considering the running toddler was her own son. Start
