Well i think its her own fault for sitting on the bench knowing the heat was going to be this hot but at the same time the the facility should of kept the bench from direct sunlight in the first place. Fan safety is priority

But isn't it also her responsibility to use at least a mediocre amount of brain cells to realize she was sitting on something hot and that she should move?

That presumes she has any to spare, and the evidence is she doesn't.

This chick needs on of LJ Gibb's (NCIS) dope slaps - a hard one.

She was looking for a sign to tell her to get the fug up.

I really do support the notion of removing ALL safety notices and letting nature take its course.

Sign, sign, everywhere a sign
Blockin' out the scenery, breakin' my mind
Do this, don't do that, can't you read the sign?

You should probably do some research before making an ignorant comment like this. The Mcdonalds lawsuit involved 3rd degree burns. The coffee was being served at a tempurature that if you were to drink it, it would cause your throat to swell and kill you from suffication. This is a tempurature that Mcdonalds had no business serving it at.


You should probably also do some research and look for stupid on the internet and see what it tells you! Put boiling hot coffee between your legs, squeeze you thighs shut and I guarantee you, you will get third degree burns!

And yet hundreds of millions of people drank McDonald's coffee before the lawsuit and never got burnt.

Back to the topic on hand, this woman is an idiot. You don't need a sign to tell you that a black bench is going to be hot in 101 degree weather. You need a brain, which this person clearly did not have.

It's things like this that reaffirm my decision to hate all humans.

Common sense has went long out the window... don't walk barefoot on a sandy beach or asphalt on a hot day, don't lick frozen surfaces and poles on a freezing day, don't stare at the sun... I mean, since the dawn of time, there are certain things that are just plain common sense, and those that don't have it end up scraping their body off of something....

sheesh

Again, look up the lawsuit, that isnt what happened. The coffee the woman was given didnt have a lid on it in a drive through. There is a certain level of safety that all products must follow in the USA. Get use to it. You want the ability to complain when ATT screws us over for not telling us about X or changing Y but then you say Mcdonalds shouldn't be forced to put a lid on something so hot it sends you to the hospital.

i cut myself with a kitchen knife before, i should go look at who made them and start a lawsuit. No where on the packaging did I see a "knives can cut you" warning.

Interesting.. prove it. Where are you getting your statistics from it? Just because nobody sued doesn't mean nobody was hurt. Products hurt me all the time but I don't sue for it. Consumer laws are changing drasticly in this country. Consumers are allowed to sue for anythign that isn't warned about. That's the law. Get use to it.

The lawsuit claims there were no warnings about sitting on the benches in hot weather.


And she needs one? What a dummy.
